Lil' Louie from Jersey is still processing Saturday's loss. I also think he might be a lil' stoned.

Between the disappointment at Paul Brown, the news that Wayne Blackshear hasn't been cleared by the NCAA and Chane giving us all a little scare at the Red/White scrimmage on Friday; yeah, it's safe to say Card Nation has had better weekends.

Still, the road to six wins is far from impassable and a top ten basketball team will take the floor inside the KFC Yum Center for its first game in less than a month. Things have been worse.

Bullitt East star Derek Willis was one of the guests at Louisville's Red/White scrimmage on Friday, and his review wasn't exactly glowing.

Louisville: "It was a lot of fun to watch (the scrimmage). I was a little disappointed in the turn out by the fans, but other than that it was just fine."

Not ideal.

Fresh off of leading her Atlanta Dream squad to the WNBA finals, Angel McCoughtry is trying her hand at music. Here first single, "Baby I'm a Star," is available for purchase on Amazon.

The KFC Yum Center is on track to turn a profit of at least $500,000 in its first year.

The Louisville/Syracuse game on Oct. 29 will kickoff at noon. Ugh.

It's back to the cellar for the Cards in the new ESPN Big East power rankings.

8. Louisville (2-4, 0-1). The Cardinals are giving it that old college try. They just can't run. Or pass. Or block. Or score. Or take advantage of opportunities to win. It's too bad, because one of the best defenses in the league is being overshadowed.

Tom Jurich has been honored as the Northern Arizona University alumnus of the year.

Cincinnati native Preston Brown took Saturday's loss especially hard.



Former CC dead period legend Bryce Cotton took home Providence's midnight madness slam dunk title for the second straight year.

NBC has Louisville at No. 8 in its preseason college basketball countdown.

And finally, Will Scott has a great post up over at Carmody's Cafe about his time at Louisville and post-U of L world travels.
