Beat Bye Week Cardinal news and notes


That's Otis paying homage to birthday boy Brian Brohm, who turns 39 years young today. Something like that. Happy birthday, Brohm.

A few quick notes before we stroll on into the weekend.

Tickets for Louisville's Oct. 14 and Oct. 22 Red/White scrimmages at the KFC Yum Center went on sale this morning. Scoop the good ones while you can.

It's looking more and more like there's a very real chance of Mario Benavides returning to the field next Saturday against Marshall. Mario's excited.


Was glad to see Cincinnati stomp all over NC State last night. I also watched them play against Tennessee, and if a couple of first half calls that should have gone their way do, then that would have been a much different game.

That game at Paul Brown Stadium might be the one left on the schedule that I'm most excited about, but taking back the Keg of Nails is not going to be an easy task.

Check out the logo right behind Mark Zuckerberg's head at yesterday's f8 developer conference.


Hire Mike Rutherford and major things start happening. How do you think Paul's got so big?

Here's the Herald-Leader's story on Lex Cath QB Kyle Bolin signing with the Cards.

A preview of U of L soccer's huge Big East opener against No. 12 Notre Dame, which can be seen live on Fox Soccer Channel tomorrow night at 7.

A Kansas City radio station says if the Big 12 makes the move back to 12 teams, the three additions will be Louisville, West Virginia and TCU.

Andy Glockner says Louisville's non-conference schedule is not strong. Andy Glockner (who originally didn't even mention the game against Memphis) is incorrect.


With some experience back and good freshmen coming in, the Cardinals have a team that should be much worthier than the nonconference schedule it's being handed.

The rundown:

-- One state that is not a state (Long Beach State, although not a walkover game)

-- One punctuation mark (Tennessee-Martin)

-- One in-state directional notation (Western Kentucky)

-- One bad Scrabble rack (IUPUI)

The "plus side" is a trip to Butler (a bit down this season), visits from Vandy and Memphis (good), and the game at Rupp, so we may have to wait until Big East play to really figure out the Cards.

And finally, the C-J says the Cardinal defensive line is now finally living up to its potential.
