The Latest One...on the Short List of the Most Gut Wrenching Card Losses of All Time...


It's 1:30a.  I can't sleep.

I cannot stomach watching another basketball game tonight.

I'm 56 yrs old, a professional--and yeah, 18-21 yr olds playing a simple game of BBall can still tear my heart and soul out.

I'm never figured out how to truly, quickly  get over a shot to the gut quite like this one.

I have always cared too much for my Cards.

As U of L fans , we've tasted the very peaks of success...and like any team, the deepest valleys.

This one was in a 1000' sink hold in the deepest valley of my heart....

This team deserved to be remembered... on a lasting basis in our  memories... for opening the new arena in style....for much more than just  the Marquette Miracle.

But , that  truly horrible exit--a punchline for UK fans for yrs to come-- will  unfortunately be remembered long after  any of the positives.

Remember U. S Reed's dagger from past mid-court that ended that great team's run and high expectations?  Do u remember much else about that great team?  

Or the last second upset  loss to Ball State...when we again had a great yr.  What team was that again... :-(

I was praying for a victory today...a little run to a Sweet Sixteen even.  But...This team won nothing this year...except our hearts--and a renewed joy in college bball.  Unselfish, no ego, over-achieving, FUN bball.

God...I enjoyed this year and this team.  I'm just  so, so sorry for them...
