Friday Evening Cardinal News And Notes


So if you missed it, Chane Behanan (fueled by the recent outpouring of support from Louisville's extreme youth) went for a double-double in his NCAA Tournament debut. I don't think we have any choice but to keep this going.

Thanks to Patrick Hibdon for keeping this movement flying.

Spread check: Louisville by 1.5.

A major congratulations to former Cardinal Jerry Smith, who was called up form the D-League by the New Jersey Nets on Thursday. I'm not sure anyone has ever deserved their shot in the league more.

On the other end of the spectrum is today's news that Terrence Williams has been waived by the Houston Rockets.

This is not normal:


Actually, I'm pretty sure that's illegal.

Your Louisville softball team is now a sparkling 21-0 after a win over Western Kentucky. The Cards were set to participate in the Capitol Classic this weekend, but unfortunately that event has been canceled because of weather.

Deadspin tackles the topic of insane Kentucky fans who think UPS is out to get them.

I figured out how to make links pop up in a new window, so if that was a concern before, don't be afraid to click away now.

Dip in the sink:


Flooding on the first floor:


Just one more day, Yum Center. If you can make it through this, you can make it through anything. I'm so sorry.

Nice story from the Seattle Times on Peyton Siva's success since his ankle became healthy and quasi-homecoming this weekend in Portland.

"It's a lot easier for me now to move around on the court," Siva said. "Before, I didn't have a lot of lift because of my ankle. I can be a lot more active because my ankle's feeling a lot better now. It's really helping my game a lot. But more than that, I've stopped worrying about everything and stopped making excuses.

"Now all I'm worrying about is defense and pressuring other teams and it's really helping me."

This was a homecoming of sorts for Siva. More than 30 family and friends, including his mother, father and grandmother, formed what they called an "SUV train," driving through the relentless rain from Seattle to Portland to watch.

They turned the Rose Garden's Section 122 into "Peytonville," many wearing Siva's No. 3 jersey.

"It was very cool to see all those people up there," Siva said. "It was fun to see them all excited like that. They can get loud. Coach Pitino said we wouldn't have a home-court advantage, but I told him if everybody was like my dad we would."

Even when the news would seem to be unmistakably positive, Quacky continues to be this city's ultimate divisive figure.




Not even funny.

Congrats to hothot on currently sitting all alone at the top of the CC Bracket Challenge standings.

You bastard.

St. Patrick's Day and a Louisville NCAA Tournament game that should tip at some time around 10 p.m.

I'm not going to judge you if you go to sleep right now.
