Return to Freedom Hall?

With the University of Louisville Men's Basketball team looking more and more like we're headed for the NIT (Not In Tournament), a big question that we might want to ask now and find out the answer is: "Will we play our NIT games in Freedom Hall since the KFC Yum! Center will be hosting the 2nd and 3rd rounds of the NCAA Tournament?" Hmm... It's something to think about. I don't know if the NCAA would want one of their host sites having minor league NIT games the night before. So with that said, will the Cards return to Freedom Hall if the fail to make the real thing and play in the secondary, sad, tournament for teams that couldn't cut it this year? I can see ESPN making a splash about it. But worse than that, I can see the Kool-Aid drinking Big Blue AbomiNation laughing themselves to death over our demotion back to the Hall. I would have NEVER dreamed this just 3 weeks ago but I must say that it is looking more and more like a third NIT (Not In Tournament) season under Rick Pitino. In 10 years we have only 12 NCAA Tournament wins (1 in 2003, 4 in 2005, 1 in 2007, 3 in 2008 and 2009). Guys, I'm sick of this. I'm so worn out with "what- if's" or "if only's", and even the "injuries are killing us!" I'm just sick. Everything rises and falls on leadership. The captain is responsible for the crew. Accountability is missing in our world today by many people and the current slide in the 'Ville is because of a lack of accountability and leadership from the top. I'm sick of thinking "next year". I'm tired of dreaming for another banner to be hung for a championship or at least a Final Four. If we have to go back and play in Freedom Hall in this year's NIT it will perfectly illustrate the direction of the U of L program...Going BAckwards!
