Monday evening Cardinal news and notes

So now we're making the leap to baby Chronicloid videos. I've completely lost control.

I'm not exactly sure what it is, but I could not find that video more entertaining. Well done, Josh Sewell. Seriously, I'm laughing right now. OK, I just stopped

I just found out that U of L's games in the Bahamas were part of what was dubbed the "Summer of Thunder" tournament. I want a "2011 Summer of Thunder Tournament Champions" t-shirt by the end of the week. And I want Beach Gorgui featured on the shirt.

Intertube Gorgui will also suffice.


Just wanted to take a moment and thank special correspondent Matt Swafford for his reports from the Bahamas. They definitely heightened the fun of Louisville basketball in August.

After conducting their first intrasquad scrimmage of fall camp, the football team was back at it with another two-a-day session on Monday. Here are the notes from the morning session.

* Jordan Tennyson, who started camp at tight end, also moved to the defensive end position. * The offense looked better throwing the football this morning. Senior Josh Bellamy continues to have a good camp and is ready to be a big-play performer. * Wide receiver Michaelee Harris, who is playing with a soft cast on his thumb, made a couple of great cathes during team work, including an acrobatic catch off a deflection from cornerback Charles Gaines.

* Coach Kenny Carter likes the backfield of Victor Anderson and Jeremy Wright. He think they have the potential to be two very special backs this season. He also likes the continued development of Senorise Perry and Corvin Lamb.

* Defensive tackle Greg Scruggs thinks freshman defensive back Terell Floyd is going to be a special player for the Cardinals. Coaching staff also raves about the potential of offensive guard Jon Miller, who has received a lot of snaps this summer.

Seventeen days.


We talked about Lorenzo Mauldin making the move to tight end earlier today, but a little birdie (sorry) tells me that Mr. Greg Scruggs has also been taking a few reps at the position. He certainly has the size and athleticism to be utilized in goalline situations. I love it.

Can you imagine a Scruggs Island TD celebration?

The women's basketball team handled the exhibition competition in Canada with every bit as much ease as the men did in the Bahamas. You can get a detailed report of the Cards' adventures on the official trip blog.

Your top-ranked men's soccer team began its decision with a 2-0 exhibition victory at St. Louis. Hermann Trophy candidate Colin Rolfe netted both goals for the Cards.

A lot of people have been sending their congratulations to the North Oldham All-Star team, which locked up a bid to the Little League World Series over the weekend. I will not be joining them.

When I was 11 we played North Oldham in a District 2 tournament elimination game. The score was tied 0-0 all the way until the bottom of the 10th. I was playing catcher and there was a play at the plate where I was trucked and ended up dropping the ball. Running over the catcher is illegal in youth baseball, and is supposed to result in an automatic out. The homer umpires deliberated for about five minutes before calling the kid safe and our All-Star run came to a close.

It was just like A League of Their Own except I didn't do it on purpose and I cried way more than Dottie.

The North Oldham Little League team will not have the support of Card Chronicle in Williamsport.

U of L is the preseason favorite to bring home the Big East women's volleyball title.

Great news for Bellarmine basketball fans as reigning Great Lakes Valley Conference MVP Jeremy Kendle has been granted three additional semesters of eligibility, which will allow him to play two more seasons for the fighting Mike Rutherfords.
