The ACC spring meetings wrapped up on Thursday, and not a whole lot happened.
Major college football home attendance in 2014 dipped to its lowest average in 14 years, but Louisville was one of the few programs that actually saw an increase in attendance this past season.
The Cards will begin postseason play Friday at 5 p.m. against Kansas.
Louisville is No. 6 in the country when it comes to cities with the most dog attacks on mail carriers. Yeah, but we'd be top three for sure if Blackshear would start driving to the basket more.
ESPN's Chad Ford broke down both Montrezl Harrell and Terry Rozier for The Courier-Journal. Here's his spiel on Terry.
TERRY ROZIER (6-1, 190) - Ford's No. 25 prospect and No. 6 point guard in the 2015 draft
What NBA teams like: "Similar things to Montrezl. Terry's really great athletically, got an NBA body. He's tough physically. We can say they're way different sizes, but I do think for Terry it's also about polish offensively. He shot the ball OK this season, but he didn't shoot it great. And questions about his point-guard abilities -- I think that's the biggest thing. When Louisville lost Chris Jones, did he really step up? I think a lot of scouts said, 'OK, here's his chance to show that he can really run this team.' And there was some of that and there wasn't. The guys that really like him see a Kyle Lowry comparison, but there's guys that are really not Terry Rozier fans."
What he still needs to prove: "He's got to come in here (to the combine) and show that his handle's tightened up, that he can shoot the 3 well enough. The one thing I'll say is tough in this process is to prove that you're a pure point guard unless you're playing 5-on-5. And I think one of the reasons he's in the combine, playing 5-on-5, even when some guys ranked below him pulled out, is that he's going to try to show that here in Chicago.
"So of all the guys who are actually here, he's one guy who can really help himself. Because this is one last chance, out of Rick Pitino's system, to play some point guard and try to show that he's a distributor, show that he sees the floor well. And if he has a really great Chicago here, he'll help himself. He'll move up and he'll lock himself into the first round. If he struggles shooting the ball and he's turnover-prone here, he's a guy who could've taken the risk and ends up hurting his stock and he slides into the second round."
This pretty cool act of kindness from a Qdoba employee in Louisville has gone viral.

NFL.com says Teddy Bridgewater is one of four quarterbacks who will have breakout seasons (video) in 2015. The Dolphins' Ryan Tannehill also gets a nod, thanks in large part to the fact that he gets to throw to DeVante Parker.

U of L president James Ramsey said the No. 1 priority in the plan is construction of a new instructional facility at the Health Sciences Center, which has a price tag of $71.7 million.
Other notable projects in the proposed capital plan include $55 million for a potential expansion of Papa John's Cardinal Stadium, which could focus on the north end, $198.8 million to construct a research facility at U of L's Health Sciences Center and $102 million for a research and academic center on the Belknap campus.
