An American Tale: CCBM Goes South.

I_medium Spread Check: Louisville by 29.5.

I_medium The seventh-ranked Louisville women's team notched its most impressive victory of the young season by destroying No. 22 Iowa, 86-52 Thursday night. The 8-0 Cards host Kentucky at 2 p.m. on Sunday. You should go.

I_medium Here's a list of the regional networks that will be carrying tonight's game against FIU.

I_medium Louisville slides up a spot to No. 4 in Luke Winn's latest power rankings for Sports Illustrated.

The Cardinals have the nation's best defense, but on offense, they need an intervention. Senior guardChris Jones is using 27.0 percent of their possessions with an abysmal field-goal percentage of 28.6 and an Offensive Rating of 92.9. This is far from an ideal arrangement on a team that has efficient options in Montrezl Harrell and Wayne Blackshear. I went through last season's database and could only find 18 teams that allowed a player to use 27 or more percent of their possessions with a sub-100 ORating. It was a sorry bunch: 16 of the 18 had sub-.500 records, and 17 of 18 missed the NCAA tournament. Cardinals, you don't want to end up like this.

Next up: 12/5 vs. Florida International, 12/9 vs.Indiana in New York

I_medium It's going to be yet another huge recruiting weekend for Louisville football.

The University of Louisville football team this week will have another important recruiting weekend that's expected to include official visits from five players committed to other major colleges.

U of L will have at least seven visitors in all, including five rated four stars by at least one major recruiting site. Two of them are considered top-125 prospects nationally.

Four-star teammates Sherrod Pittman, Tristan Payton and William Sweet of First Coast High School in Jacksonville, Fla., are expected to officially visit. All are committed to other schools.

Pittman, an inside linebacker who is committed to South Carolina, is rated the No. 85 senior nationally by Rivals.com - higher than any high school prospect coach Bobby Petrino has signed since he returned to Louisville.

It's all fair until the LOI is signed and faxed. Louisville knows this is as well as any program.

I_medium The Sporting News' latest mock draft has DeVante Parker going to the Minnesota Vikings with the No. 9 overall pick, which would certainly be something.

I_medium And finally, beat FIU.
