Goodbye, but not forgotten....Denny, Darrell, Rodney and Scooter, Lancaster, Milt , Pervis... the 80's
Finally gone. Gone.
I had relished it for years....there will never be another seminal time in U of L history like that--first Championship, Dream Game mastery of UK, 4 Final 4's in 6 years, and then another Championship. And Remember: Howard Schnellenberger arrived and started football then too. I still can see it all in my mind.
No...there will never be another time like it.
But that's ok. We had those seminal moments.
Now, we have built on them and created something far more beautiful.
In 8 years --2005-2013-- we have 3 Final 4's, a national Championship, 2 women's Final 4's, and 2 BCS games,including a seminal win over Fla in the SugarBowl. And the men and women teams in all sports are highly competitive nationally. We have become a mini-powerhouse--the little train that could (with conductor Tom Jurich at the controls!)
Yes, a new time. New heroes.
Now, yes, now....is the best time to be a U of L Card fan.
All Hail !
