Tuesday afternoon Cardinal news and notes

There's a lot of talk on Valentine's Day about violets being blue, but this violet is definitely red.

I_medium Jim Boeheim was proud of Syracuse's effort Monday night, but it wasn't enough for the Orange to notch a huge win for their NCAA Tournament hopes.

I_medium Still not tired of this yet.

I_medium The U of L women's swimming and diving team is in second place after day one of the ACC Championships.

I_medium USA Today recaps last night's game.

I_medium The last time Louisville lost to an unranked opponent? Exactly a year ago yesterday.

I_medium Jeff Greer gives an updated look at Louisville's NCAA Tournament resume.

I_medium What is the deal with people going nuts inside U of L sports venues this week?

Authorities say a Louisville man was arrested on the field of Papa John's Cardinal Stadium after he caused at least $21,000 worth of damage to the property.

According to University of Louisville Police, the incident occurred at 11:30 a.m. on Monday.

Police say 20-year-old Kameron Davenport had no business being on the sports field, which was fenced in and locked when police found him there. Officers subsequently placed him under arrest, but police say he didn't go quietly. According to the arrest report, he fought with police, and in the process, injured an officer's arm.

Police say he created such a disturbance that it caused workers in the area to, "flee and become fearful."

Officers placed him in a police cruiser, but police say Davenport continued to fight, kicking out the rear window of the vehicle

Cop car windows don't grow on trees, guys. They need those.

I_medium In Raleigh, they simply chalk up inexplicable heartaches to being "NC State sh-t."

I_medium Forget Valentine's Day, today we need to be celebrating the 25th anniversary of the release of Wayne's World. To honor the event, GQ has the behind-the scenes story of one of the movie's most well-known jokes.

I_medium The Mac Trio (McPitchers? McCardinals? I don't know I'm open to suggestions here. I can't do it all, guys.) will be on the hill for Louisville baseball's opening weekend.

I_medium Louisville's win last night allowed it to pass Indiana and move into the top 10 alone on college basketball's all-time wins list.

I_medium No surprise here, but ESPN ranks Louisville as the best in the ACC when it comes to the quarterback position for 2017.

First up: Quarterbacks

Best overall: Louisville. It is hard to rank any other team No. 1 when Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson returns for his junior season. To be sure, there are many areas where Jackson must improve, especially after the team lost its final three games to end the season. Louisville has revamped its offensive line, but Jackson also must improve his accuracy, especially down the field (Jackson only completed 56.2 percent of his passes overall last season, and that was a career high). Still, he did gain over 5,000 yards and remains one of the most dynamic players in college football. Veteran backup Kyle Bolin returns, and so does redshirt freshman Jawon Pass -- the future at the position.

I_medium Athlon ranks Louisville's throwback hoops jerseys as the 11th-best ever.

I_medium Yesterday, CBS ranked last night's Louisville-Syracuse game and the Cardinals' upcoming game at North Carolina among the 20 best remaining in the college basketball season.

I_medium Lamar and friends want to say thanks.

I_medium The Sporting News' latest bracket projection has Louisville as a No. 2 seed.

I_medium Rick Pitino was among those offering Jay Wright congratulations for his 500th win over the weekend.

I_medium Indiana is an absolute mess with no obvious answers.
