DEVANTE PARKER'S FOOT INJURY

RAP SHEET:

--Occurred just 10 days before the 2014 season-opener against Miami, and at the end of a summer in which it was widely discussed that the Cardinal offense was being built around him.

--Resulted in Parker missing the first seven games of the 2014 season, and the Louisville offense often looking lost without him.

--Forced me to write on my honeymoon.

--Could shoulder legitimate blame for two of Louisville's three regular season losses.

vs.

MARK STOOPS

RAP SHEET:

--Became the first Louisville or Kentucky coach to skip the Governor's Cup Luncheon last summer.

--Essentially admitted that he directed his non-dressing players to instigate conflicts before the Louisville game, saying afterward: "I wanted that. I told them they were coming here to make a difference."

--"Is that Louisville game important? Of course, it is important. It is extremely important, but the 11 games before that are as every bit as important. We play in a big man's league."

--Lost five straight games to keep Kentucky out of a bowl for the fourth straight season.

Just one spot in the Final Four remains. You've got 24 hours to decide who gets it.
