I_medium Damion Lee hit 5-of-7 threes and scored 17 points for the Miami Heat last night, who took down the Nuggets in Summer League play. Lee also got into it with Jamal Murray for a stretch during the second half.

I_medium It is impossible for anything to be more SEC than this picture.

I_medium Gary Parrish outlines five things that we learned at the Peach Jam, including the nugget that Jim Boeheim has a son who is a legitimate Division-I prospect.

I_medium I love that the athletic department appears to be embracing an Ali theme for the 2016-17 season.

I_medium Offensive tackle Cordavien Suggs says he plans on visiting Louisville, Florida, Georgia and Mississippi State this month.

I_medium This read on Kentucky's famous "Cocaine Bear" is both fascinating and entertaining.

I_medium Kentucky's 2016 football poster is out.

Replace "stand" with "bowl" and you've actually got a pretty accurate reflection of the state of the program.

I_medium Adam Himmelsbach takes a look at the Summer of Terry (Rozier).

I_medium U of L is offering an exciting promotion at a pair of football games this season that could get you paid. .

As part of the "Student Section $100K Giveaway" campaign, any current Louisville student who attends two of the selected home football games this year will have an opportunity to win a share of $100,000.

Should the Cardinals return the opening or the second-half kickoff for a touchdown versus Charlotte on Sept. 1 or against NC State on Oct. 22, 100 students in the student section will be awarded $1,000 each. SCORE YOUR SHARE OF $100,000!

Student tickets scanned at any one of the gates before the designated kickoff time will automatically be entered in the contest.

All entries will be represented by a numbered ping pong ball or raffle ticket and randomly drawn by a representative of the athletics staff and Student Government Association. The drawing will be recorded for future content promotion and proof of randomness. Each of the winners will be notified through GoCards.com, UofL social media outlets, and email.

Student tickets are available through the Student My Cardinals Account or visit GoCards.com/students for all student ticket information. For all contest rules, visit GoCards.com/100k.

Traveon Samuel wants that coin.

I_medium David Teel says the ACC and ESPN might announce a new partnership before July 21.

I_medium Henry Famurewa wants to fill the void left behind by Chinanu Onuaku's departure.

I_medium Newly unsealed records show that Joe Paterno was told of Jerry Sandusky's horrific acts all the way back in 1976.

I_medium No CCBM sets a dangerous precedent, cut congrats, my man.

I_medium We've known for a while that Syracuse is hosting an "Orange Out" for its week two game against Louisville, well now 'Cuse has released six finalists for the design of the shirt their fans will be wearing. TNIAAM examines and breaks down all six.

I_medium Louisville, Kentucky and North Carolina all had eyes on Romeo Langford last weekend.

I_medium If you're looking for vintage treasures in Louisville (and really, aren't we all?), this is the internet post for you.

I_medium Yep.

I_medium College baseball continues to have a massive issue with scholarships.

I_medium Teddy Bridgewater is a Pro Bowler, but he's still the Vikings' most underrated player.

I_medium When you're in Como, Italy, you throw Ls with Jesus. It's just what you do.

I_medium The Bats are celebrating Christmas in July this weekend, which is something.

I_medium Former U of L track and field standout Matt Hughes is headed to Rio.

I_medium Eric Crawford examines Chinanu Onuaku's recent comments about having to "play like a robot" in college.

As for Onuaku, I'm not entirely sure, from the context, that he meant anything by his comments. It's certainly possible. But for what he is going to be asked to do by the Rockets, he could be far worse things than robotic.

So far in three summer league games, he has gone 2-7 from the field, averaged 1.3 points, and grabbed 14 rebounds — including a game-high nine in a win over Sacramento on July 10, his best overall outing so far.

Still, his average of 4.7 rebounds per game is fewer than former college teammates Montrezl Harrell and Terry Rozier are averaging. In fact, former Cardinal Chane Behanan is averaging more rebounds (5.0) in less than half the minutes (9 per game).

In an interview with reporters in Houston, Harrell said of him, "He's a young guy who still has a lot to learn. I feel he definitely going to have to learn to change from that Louisville locker room and a college locker room to an NBA locker room. But I feel like he's going to pick that up by being around a bunch of older, more mature guys. . . . He's very versatile with his height and length can definitely use him on the defensive end. On the offensive end, as log as he plays hard. . . . But on defense, he brings the versatility to be able to sit down and guard switches."

I_medium New Louisville commit Trenell Troutman says fellow Miami native Teddy Bridgewater has been "like a mentor" to him.

I_medium I love this tweet.

I_medium Devonte Fields checks in at No. 44 on Sports Illustrated's list of the 100 best players in college football for this season.

A former standout at TCU before being dismissed from the school in August 2014, Fields spent the '14 season in junior college before finding his footing on Louisville's defense last fall. The linebacker led the nation in tackles for loss (22.5)—second-most in a single season at Louisville—and added 11 sacks. Now Fields will be one of eight returning starters on the Cardinals' defense in 2016.

I_medium And finally, R&R is back this afternoon from 3-6 talking summer nonsense and Cardinal sports. Listen here and also check out the 93.9 The Ville Facebook page.
