During my ME time in the shower the other day, I thought of what some of my buddies at CC favorite Cardinal athletes were.
Here are mine.....
FAVORITE- Brian Brohm
It was a close one between him and Michael Bush. He stayed all four years to try and help us make the National Championship. He was a tough player and a no quit attitude. I remember his Senior Night against Rutgers, oh how I wanted us to crush them bitches for what they did the previous year. Brohm led us back to beat Rutgers in same fashion that Rutgers did the year before. He is a Cardinal at heart and my favorite ever.
Favorite- Earl Clark
I used to like Terrence Williams more, but after I thought more, I really liked Clark better. I like the way he moved for a big fella' he had quickness, and range. Though he didn't have SPECTACULAR numbers, he was an 'Over-achiever' according to Rick Pitino. I admired him back in my basketball days and always wanted to be the big guy that could shoot, dribble, and handle the ball like E5 did.
Football- Bilal Powell
Even though he did not have a BREAKOUT college career, Powell shined in his senior year. It sucks that it was his senior year because Charlie Strong used him well unlike you know who. But this last year showed you what he was capable of and it was pretty de-moralizing to finally see him shine during the game and later come to terms that he was a Senior and wouldn't be back. He was in the top 5 in rushing yard for most of the year but didn't get any attention at all. He is a hard worker IE: 85 yard run in Cincy game!
Basketball- Preston Knowles
Do I have to explain. OK, this mans body wasn't the biggest, wasn't the strongest, but his heart was. He was probably the most UNDERRATED player in college basketball this last year. He helped Louisville win games IE: Marquette game, Notre Dame game, and hit the game winner against Pitt. He dominated Syracuse with his SEVEN THREE-POINTERS. He was a perfect example of a team mate, probably the hardest working man to wear a Cardinal jersey!
Give me your ideas guys, oh and HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY to everyone.
