Cards Fourth in Hoops/Helmets Rankings

You can tell it's the offseason when these posts start reappearing.

Louisville checked in at #4 in's annual Hoops and Helmets rankings, trailing only Florida, Ohio State and Wisconsin.

4. Louisville (20)

The Cardinals' historically significant football season ended with a win over Wake Forest in the Orange Bowl, the program's first appearance in a BCS bowl game. The Big East champions had signature wins over Miami and West Virginia, despite spending almost the entire season without star running back Michael Bush. Rick Pitino did one of his best coaching jobs in some time, guiding a young collection of talent to a 24 wins before getting bounced in the second round.

Behind the Cards, Texas A&M (tear), USC, last year's champion Texas, BYU, Notre Dame and UCLA rounded out the top ten.

Despite not finishing in the top 25 in either sport Kentucky somehow managed to make an appearance in the rankings at #15.

Sigh, just 31 days until the Spring Game and the official commencement of Art Carmody's senior year  world domination tour.
