Wednesday evening Cardinal news and notes

New, 144 comments

These two humans have never experienced a Louisville loss to Kentucky. Cherish this time.

—I’m sick as hell so this will be fairly brief.

—Eric Crawford says that Louisville lacked execution, but not toughness, in its loss to Purdue.

—”Review” being misspelled in the subject line of U of L’s year in review email is actually a perfect summary of the year.

Of course we aren’t the only school in the state to struggle with the word this year.

It’s hard to believe the Commonwealth doesn’t rank higher in education.

—Jeff Greer says Louisville’s November loss to Baylor last year resulted in the team taking on a new approach, and believes last night’s Purdue loss might have the same effect this year.

—Louisville sits at No. 25 in Ken Pom’s updated rankings after last night’s loss. That’s one spot behind the Cards’ next opponent, Seton Hall.

—Willie Taggart has a new deal at Oregon.

—Always making history.

—The LA Times reports that a video has surfaced which directly contradicts a portion in the FBI’s complaint pertaining to USC. With that being the case, someone needs to go ahead and clear De’Anthony Melton.

—Texas A&M is continuing to target Jimbo Fisher.

—He’s not wrong.

—Seedy K’s picks for college football’s championship weekend are here.

—Asia Durr and Myisha Hines-Allen are both members of the 50-player Naismith Award watch list.

—Prior to building Louisville into a national power, Ken Lolla did the same thing at Akron. Now the two teams will meet Friday at Lynn Stadium with a trip to the College Cup on the line.

—Don bein’ Don.

Mitchell also joined Darrell Griffith last night as the only Jazz players in history to hit the 300-point mark in the first 21 games of their rookie season.

—The most pleasant surprise in college hoops so far this season has been ... Arizona State?

—Jeff Brohm is apparently not going to Tennessee, which is cool by me.

—Bobby Petrino spent some time with QB commit Tutu Atwell Tuesday night.

—Heading into tonight’s games, the ACC leads the ACC-Big Ten Challenge by a count of 6-1. I’m not sure where the one loss came and I don’t have enough time to look it up.

Here’s your schedule for tonight:

Wednesday, Nov. 29

Clemson at Ohio State, 7:15 p.m. (ESPN2)
Penn State at North Carolina State, 7:15 p.m. (ESPNU)
Michigan at North Carolina, 7:30 p.m. (ESPN)

Boston College at Nebraska, 9:15 p.m. (ESPNU)
Duke at Indiana, 9:30 p.m. (ESPN)

—UK has signed the top-ranked punter in the class of 2018. I’m sure he’ll get quite the workout in Lexington. Other teams in the state give their punters holidays off.

—Florida State punter Ricky Aguayo apparently got jumped by a frat because he was missing too many field goals. Now he’s a suspect in the killing of that frat’s turtle. Wild times at FSU.

—Love Cards tree season.

—Former U of L running back Brandon Radcliff has been signed to the Miami Dolphins practice squad.

—And finally, the U of L women head to Bloomington on Thursday to face Indiana in the ACC-Big 10 Challenge. Here’s a preview.
