Today was media day for the ACC in basketball. No Coach Pitino was not there. ACC Commish Swofford stated he supported the coach’s decision with the allegations going on. There was a reason he didn’t go like we alluded to on the air this past Saturday. Nevertheless Media Day brought some fun and happiness to CardNation as we got to see Damion Lee and Trey Lewis shine off of the court. Here are a few videos for you if you haven’t seen them
Coach Rick Pitino posted something extremely important in his blog today. Something that I think we, as fans, have forgotten in the midst of the scandal. BASKETBALL SEASON is ONE WEEK AWAY!!
( Coach Rick Pitino 2015 – 2016 Preview )
Yes, despite efforts to derail the University of Louisville’s Basketball program, it appears the show will go on as expected. The CARDS open up with an at home exhibition on Sunday, November 1st at 1:30PM.
This week…..on 55…..
55 is not a state of mind or a way to live life your life…yet. It is a place to state facts and shoot down gripes. I have logged a ton of hours in this week at the factory. (I don’t really work in a….nevermind) Once again I share with you the 55 most ridiculous things I have heard, had to debate, or just thought about this past week. Hope you enjoy. Or not…it’s cool.
1) The football team had a bye week, we did not lose however did not win
2) we still dropped in the poll 2 spots
3) We dropped 2 spots after beating USF by 31
4) UCF barely defeated USF this past week and jumped 2 spots
5) I despise UCF
6) The Men’s Basketball team looked to get back on track by defeating previously undefeated Southern Miss 69-38
7) Yes we held a grown mans team to 38 points for an entire game
8) We had 34 at halftime
9) Thx Kev. The Volleyball Cards have been on a roll as well going 18-0 in conference. Despite this the Cards are not even receiving votes in the AVCA Poll.
10) Four of their seven losses were to the number 3,11,13 & 17th ranked teams in the country early on in the season.
Tomorrow night at the Basketball Academy the 2012 Crusade for Children Hardwood Classic will take place. Its the third annual event which pits a team representing the Cards led by Luke Whitehead against a team representing the Cats which will be led by Derek Anderson…a former graduate of Doss High School who chose Ohio St over that one school. Here is the official press release for the event: Read the rest of this entry

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…
Let the madness begin! This evening, the brackets were revealed for the NCAA Tournament. The Louisville Cardinals (26-9) were given the 4 seed in the West Region. They will face the 13 seed Davidson Wildcats (25-7).
