Tuesday afternoon Cardinal news and notes

Ella is planning on holding this Heisman pose from now until the Cards kickoff against Charlotte.

I_medium V.J. King is up to No. 23 in ESPN's final rankings for the class of 2016.

I_medium Louisville baseball is back in action tomorrow against Florida International. First pitch at Jim Patterson Stadium is slated for 5 p.m.

I_medium Yeah, we don't do nickname changes here. They could turn it into the most luxurious hotel this side of the Mississippi and it would still be Dirty Kroger.

We didn't stop calling him Snoop Dogg just because he asked us to.

I_medium Game of Thrones being back means the Game of Thrones scorecard is as well, which is pretty much just as good.

I_medium Getting in on the Birdman references before they become stale. I dig it.

I_medium Gary Parrish has a good column about how the perception (and jobs, in some cases) of college basketball coaches is so largely connected to a handful of NBA Draft decisions.

I_medium Louisville football has offered a scholarship to four-star DB K.J. Jarrell from Scottsdale (Ariz.).

I_medium Put it on your calendar, Caverna.

I_medium Both Jon Solomon of CBS and Dana O'Neil of ESPN compare the situation at UNC to Jerry Tarkanian's famous quote about the NCAA being so mad at Kentucky that they gave Cleveland State the death penalty.

I_medium In EDSBS' "Better Know a Clemson Fan" feature, Brian from Shakin' the Southland says the Tigers would like being roomies with Louisville.

If a Clemson fan has to be roommates with a fan of another team, which one are they most likely to get along with?

A lot of people want me to say Auburn. Both are similar schools with agricultural pasts, a few football triumphs, and similar mascots. (Editor's note: please say this means Dabo Swinney can shapeshift into an eagle.) Clemson also had the same colors as Auburn back in the early 1900's, borrowed from the Princeton Tigers of all places. But really I think Clemson would get along the best with Louisville fans. Their arrival in the ACC was excellent not just for football, but all sports. Our games with them have been competitive nail biters and the fans have been great. Louisville understands the ACC unlike some new additions like say, Syracuse. Rooming with them would be great. And they have that pizza deal, which mean Dabo needs all the pizza hookups he can get.

I_medium Louisville is No. 3 in Tomahawk Nation's updated ACC baseball power poll.

I_medium The Cards are now one of the favorites to land 4-star running back Michael Carter.

I_medium This is incredibly uncomfortable to watch, but it's also super important.

I_medium Chinanu Onuaku gets a nod from SI's Luke Winn on his All-Effy (efficiency) defensive team.

• Chinanu Onuaku, 6'10" sophomore C, Louisville: Anchored the nation's most efficient major-conference D, while ranking in the national top 40 in block and defensive-rebound percentage.

I_medium The University of Louisville women's golf team is making its third-consecutive NCAA Regional Championship appearance, ninth in program history, it was announced on the Golf Channel on Monday night. Louisville was selected as one of 18 programs to play at the NCAA Division I Women's Golf Bryan Regional in Texas - one of four regional sites.

I_medium Philly point guard Quade Green (2017) says he will "definitely" be visiting U of L this summer.

"I talk to (Pitino) all the time," Green said. "On the phone, Facetime, everything."

"He said I would be great for his team. He loves my demeanor and competitiveness."

Green has offers from U of L, Arizona, Xavier, Michigan State, Syracuse, Maryland, Rutgers, Temple and Villanova and has also been hearing from Miami and Duke in recent weeks.

"I will go make some visits in August," Green said, noting he would take unofficial visits soon to Xavier and Syracuse and would "definitely" make an official to U of L at the end of the summer and also likely to Michigan State.

"Yes, they fit my style of play," he said about U of L. "Everything runs through the guards. I really like that system."

I_medium Offense is the main priority for the bulk of the ACC's Atlantic Division this offseason.

I_medium Wood is my dude and all, but now I kind of want it to be a center just so he'll do something hilarious.

I_medium Jeff Greer has all the U of L recruiting news you could possibly want to digest from the weekend that was in Indianapolis.
