The bracket is out and I couldn’t be more happy. Like I said this Louisville team could lose in the first round or could make a Final Four but this draw sure makes me feel better about the latter. The Cards found themselves in the East Region (#1 seed Villinova) and will kick off their road to Indy this Friday against UC Irvine. We will have more on the Cards road and UC Irvine soon.
This is a very interesting topic. As a Cards fan, who do YOU WANT Louisville to play in the Sweet 16? Do you want a rematch with Wichita State? They are undefeated and haven’t lost since the Cards beat them in the Final Four. Or do you want a rematch against Kentucky? No explanation needed on who they are and how big that would be. We took the question to twitter, and here is what you said.
The Louisville Cardinals will take on the St. Louis Billikens on Saturday afternoon. Tip-off will be at approximately 2:45 pm ET and it will be on CBS.
This is a little late notice, but we are having a CSZ NCAA Tournament bracket challenge this year! The top two finishers will receive gift certificates for FansCloset.com! First place will get $100 and second will get $50 towards the website. FansCloset.com sells both UofL and UK apparel so anyone can join, but only UofL fans can win. Kidding, sort of.

We are just a few hours away from tip-off, and the excitement is evident amongst Cards fans. A win over Florida, and UofL advances to the Final Four! We are so close that we can feel it. However, it will not be easy.
As soon as the brackets were announced on Selection Sunday, Cards fans realized that we could possibly face Michigan State. This was a big deal because when UofL was the overall #1 seed in 2008-2009, it was the Spartans that eliminated the Cards. Sure, California and Morehead State have eliminated UofL the last 2 seasons, but the Michigan State one stuck out more, because that was supposed to be our year. We won the Big East regular season, the Big East Tournament, and were primed for a Final Four run. Last night, it was time for revenge…
