I love George Goode. A lot.
I think he plays tremendously hard and cares about the team winning as much as anyone who's worn a Cardinal uniform in recent memory. I feel awful that injuries have forced him to miss so much action thus far in his U of L career and hope like hell that he gets the opportunity to perform at 100% for the next two years.
All that said, this is one of the greatest quotes in Louisville basketball history.
"Unfortunately George fell down yesterday," Pitino said of the sophomore forward, "He didn’t bang anything. He just fell down."
Goode, who is notoriously clumsy, has already suffered two concussions this season and now might be out for the rest of the year with a meniscus tear suffered at practice Thursday. Here's hoping the injury isn't as severe as it appears or that if it is, his recovery is swift.
The good news is that Preston (Preston!) Knowles and Peyton Siva have both been ruled good to go for Saturday's all-of-the-sudden very important game with Western Carolina. Jerry Smith, who just returned to practice, will not play.
