Monday afternoon Cardinal news and notes

Sometimes there are just too many U of L sporting events to attend so you’ve gotta bust out of the hospital.

—It’s now being reported that the New England Patriots hosted Lamar Jackson two weeks ago and came away “intrigued and impressed” with the 2016 Heisman Trophy winner.

The Patriots don’t let stuff like this get out unless they want it out, which continues to make me suspicious of their intentions with all this Lamar stuff.

—Eric Crawford says Jackson’s “rise” in recent NFL Draft prognostications says more about the prognosticators than it does Jackson.

—Love these little snippets from the new U of L basketball twitter account.

—Shoutout to the Louisville Bats for setting a new attendance record on Saturday.

—Former Louisville commit and current Louisville target David Johnson out of Trinity was one of the standout performers at adidas Gauntlet camp in Colorado Springs over the weekend.

David Johnson, CG, The Ville - He isn’t playing against the best competition on the silver side of the Gauntlet, but Johnson showed high level talent. A kid with very long arms, great size, and phenomenal floor vision, Johnson shined on night two. He led his team to a win, and did it by making everybody on the floor better. Johnson’s floor vision is fantastic, and then he nailed a few jumpers as well. After an up and down high school season, Johnson looked back to his usual dominant self on Saturday.

Kansas is not a “victim,” and the Jayhawks should stop acting like it.

—The U of L men’s soccer team ended its spring season with a 3-2 loss to the Columbus Crew.

—Not a bad combo of sub-five star recruits.

—The U of L lacrosse team saw its regular season end with a loss to Syracuse.

—De’Andre Hunter is coming back to Virginia but I’ve definitely never heard that name in my life before.

—Former U of L grad transfer recruit Joseph Chartourny (Fordham) is headed to Marquette.

—20 minutes of Lamar Jackson highlights? Sure.

—The Cavalier Daily recaps Virginia baseball’s series win at Louisville.

—U of L softball had a rough go of it over the weekend at No. 8 Florida State.

—”What is art? Are we art? Is art art?” —Lisa Turtle

—Gronkowski’s (the horse) Derby status is now in question after a minor setback.

—Jeff Greer serves up an early Louisville basketball recruiting big board for the 2019 class.

—And finally, we’re back on the radio from 3-6 this afternoon talking basketball recruiting, the NBA playoffs, and giving away Kevin Hart tickets. Listen here.
