Press Release from University of Louisville S.I.D. Kenny Klein:
Success in academics for the University of Louisville student-athletes continues at a high level, reflected in recent national graduation rates released by the NCAA.
U of L student-athletes achieved an 81 percent graduation rate in the Graduation Success Rate (GSR) Report, which was developed 10 years ago to account for transfers into the university who graduate and those who leave in good academic standing. The Cardinals’ GSR, most recently reported for freshmen who entered in the 2006-07 academic year, has risen 15 percent since the reporting began nine years ago. Six sports — women’s golf, women’s lacrosse, women’s soccer, softball, men’s swimming, and men’s tennis — attained a 100 percent GSR in the most recent report.
Press Release from Kenny Klein:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. –University of Louisville junior forward Chane Behanan has been suspended indefinitely for a violation of university policy. He will not practice or be involved in any team-related activities during his suspension.
A preseason All-American Athletic Conference selection, Behanan averaged 9.8 points, 6.5 rebounds, shot 50.7 percent from the field and totaled 54 steals as a sophomore last season while starting 37 games. He was named to the NCAA Final Four All-Tournament team, producing a double-double against Michigan in the national championship game with 15 points and 12 rebounds.
OK it wasn’t this bad getting home form the game Thursday night after the Rutgers game for most. If you were tailgating in the Boy Scout lots though, it sure did feel like it. We spent an hour sitting in line just to get onto Central, it was a mess. Well this week there has been some talks and a new traffic plan has been released. The following is from King Kenny Klein…..sorry I always call him King.
Traffic Pattern Alterations Made for Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium
LOUISVILLE, Ky. — To improve traffic flow into parking areas near Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium, adjustments will go into effect beginning with the University of Louisville’s football game against UCF on Friday, Oct. 18.
Card March, where fans greet the UofL team when it walks from its busses to the stadium, will occur at approximately 5:45 p.m. Following Card March, traffic on Floyd Street will become three lanes of one-way traffic only, south bound from Warnock Street to Boxley Avenue.
Only traffic going to Bronze, Platinum and pay football lots will proceed south on Floyd Street past Warnock Street. Parking passes to the bronze and platinum lots must be displayed before approaching Floyd Street at Warnock. Vehicles using pay lots across Floyd Street from the stadium must access those areas from the north and use the designated far left lane.
Officers will be in place to enforce restrictions and aid the flow of traffic. Once barricades are established at the intersection of Floyd and Central Avenue, only vehicles with Bronze or Platinum S Parking passes are allowed on Central Avenue west.
The exit traffic plan for Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium will remain the same.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The tipoff times for three University of Louisville men’s basketball games have been updated to accommodate national telecasts for the events.
Louisville’s Dec. 21 game at FIU will start at 6 p.m. ET and will be televised nationally on Fox Sports 1. The game had been listed as a 5 p.m. tipoff earlier.
The Cardinals’ Jan. 4 game at Rutgers will tip off at 6 p.m. ET. It had previously been listed as either a 2 or 6 p.m. start.
UofL’s Jan. 12 game against SMU in the KFC Yum! Center will start at 1 p.m., an hour earlier than what had been previously published.
