VS.

The Football Commitment Curse

--From December - February, nearly every time the Louisville football team landed a new commitment the basketball team quickly responded with a bad loss.

--If the lasting effect of the curse is 30 hours, it can be blamed for four of U of L's ten losses in 2011-12. If you up that time range to 48 hours, it can be blamed for half, including the Final Four loss to Kentucky.

--No players committed to Louisville during the Cards' three-week run to the Big East Tournament title and NCAA Tournament Final Four.
