Cardinal dog jersey season.

—Louisville baseball goes for a season sweep of Kentucky tonight in Lexington. Here’s a preview of the game, which is scheduled to start at 6:30 and will be carried by the SEC Network.

—ESPN’s Jeff Borzello ranks the top transfers in college basketball and has Louisville’s Lamarr Kimble at No. 10.

—Louisville makes the final eight for the No. 5 ranked QB in the class of 2020.

—Louisville baseball RPI check: No. 5.

—I thought Jameer Nelson’s kid committing to George Washington was going to be the thing that made me feel the oldest today, then Nick Coffey pointed out that T-Will’s kid has a football recruiting profile on 247 Sports. My god.

—All hail Louisville’s pre-eminent food critic.

—Ricky O’Donnell has a new NBA mock draft for SB Nation. Murray State’s Ja Morant is No. 2 overall.

—Rick Barnes straight up admitted on Tuesday that he’d be UCLA’s head coach if the Bruins hadn’t been too cheap to pay for his buyout.

—The official U of L basketball Twitter account tweeting about Trez (who is supposed to be “disassociated” for another three years) again feels like ... something.

—The former Card gave a performance that certainly warranted some recognition.

—U of L women’s soccer has landed a commitment from Brentwood, TN standout Hayley Howard.

—840 WHAS’ Derby Betting Preview Night is going down Tuesday night at Mike Linnigs.

—Nice to see the 2022 dual-threat quarterback enjoyed his visit.

—Gary Parrish’s updated early top 25 and one rankings for 2019-20 still has Louisville at No. 6.

—Former Card Jonathan Greenard has fans in Florida excited.

—Louisville baseball is always among the nation’s leaders when it comes to service hours.

—Lamarr Kimble’s move to transfer to Louisville was a smart one, according to one Saint Joe’s columnist.

—Lamar Jackson holds the key to the Ravens’ future.

You don’t need a calculator to compute how long Lamar Jackson has been with the Ravens.

Let’s see, they selected him just under a year ago, on the last Thursday in April, in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft. That means he has worn the purple for (counting with my fingers) slightly less than 51 weeks.

Not long.

Jackson just got here, basically. His career thus far amounts to an eye-blink.

But for such a young short-timer, all of 22 years old, he certainly is shouldering a heavy load of importance and responsibility.

The Ravens are already depending on him. Counting on him. Expecting him to be the face of the franchise and lead them wherever their journey takes them in the coming years.

Talk about a rapid ascent.

—Louisville baseball freshman Alex Binelas has been named the ACC Player of the Week.

—247 Sports’ Michael McCammon is predicting a 6-6 season for Louisville football in 2019.

—And finally, sweep Kentucky.
