Russ Smith And Louisville All-Americans Since 1979

Streeter Lecka

Much ink has been spilled on how unlikely an All American Russ is.

I just noticed something that totally blew my mind- the list of other Cardinal All Americans since Darrell Griffith in 1979:

1979-Darrell Griffith

1980- Darrell Griffith

1984-Lancaster Gordon

1989- Pervis Ellison

1994- Clifford Rozier

1997- Dejuan Wheat

2003- Reece Gaines

2005- Francisco Garcia

2009- Terrence Williams

2013- Russ Smith

I don't even know what to say about that. Does this mean Russ Smith is one of the best seven nine Cardinals since our first championship in 1980? Would our opinions be different it he had 3 more stars by his name and 3 more inches on his frame?

If Russ decides to go to the NBA, I wish him the best of luck- and I truly believe he'll make a roster in the end. But, if he comes back, he could potentially go down as one of the greatest Louisville basketball players ever. That is absolutely insane.
