Press Release per Kenny Klein
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The Cardinal Athletic Fund has teamed up with Maker’s Mark to raise $1 million for the University of Louisville Academic Center of Excellence, helping U of L student-athletes be as successful academically as they are athletically.
Maker’s Mark is donating 500 uniquely designed bottles celebrating the Year of the Cardinal with an unprecedented four-part feat in college athletics: Louisville football’s Sugar Bowl victory, the baseball team reaching the College World Series, advancing to the national championship game in women’s basketball, and winning the 2013 NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship.
Yesterday Minnesota coach Richard Pitino blogged that they are trying to get a game with Louisville next year to open the season. The game would be held in a Military hanger in Puerto Rico on November 14th and the coach said they were 99% sure the game would happen. Last night his Father and Louisville basketball Head Coach Rick Pitino confirmed his sons blog post on his weekly radio show. Pitino told Paul Rogers that the game is all but going to happen some things with ESPN just need to be Ironed out.
Rick Pitino also confirmed that barring unforeseen circumstances the Cards will also be a part of the Jimmy V classic in Madison Square Garden against Indiana in early December. With these two games in the mix, the Big 10/ACC Challenge, and the annual Kentucky game next year is shaping up to be one of the Cardinals best out of Conference schedules to date.
