New, 91 comments

Russ Smith has somewhere between one and four games remaining in his Cardinal career. As depressing as that is to think about, there is zero doubt that regardless of how his final days at U of L play out, he is going to go down as one of the all-time Louisville greats.

Here's your evidence:
