This week…..on 55…..
We talk about a variety of things. Radio shows, Top 5 Pitino era guys and even the Royal Rumble. I have also decided that this will be Shawn’s last regular appearance in 55. I appreciate him being a good sport. In the end I just felt like this was his time. Good riddance. Well here we go. Once again, I share with you the 55 most ridiculous things I have heard, had to debate, or just thought about this past week. This …..is….55
1) Clint Hurtt was the last Charlie Strong staff member to leave Louisville. He will be taking an NFL job with the Chicago Bears. We appreciate all you did big fella. Much love and good luck B.I.G. click here to see his message to UofL fans
4) Led by Shoni Schimmel’s nine 3 point baskets, the Louisville women’s basketball team beat Memphis on Sunday 88-61. Shoni had eight 3 pointers in the first half and scored 29 points overall.
5) She bad
6) If you want to check out some tweets that our football visitors had during/after their official visit this weekend click here
7) The men’s basketball team went to USF and routed cold-shooting South Florida 86-47 led by Wayne Blackshear’s 16 points. In one of the first 55’s I showed Wayne Blackshear’s heartbeat as a flatline…..We have an update
9) Hopefully we have more peaks than valleys….congrats on coming around Wayne
10) USF coach Stan Heath with some compliments on Louisville: “They dictated and did whatever they wanted to do. We didn’t have any answers, whether it was them speeding us up or us getting disrupted. I just thought we were a little bit in awe. You can’t play the jerseys, you have to play the guys inside the jerseys, and we were just kind of mesmerized.”

11) High praise, and now we go to Ollie with our weather report…Ollie?

22) Speaking of @TalkinNOIZ I was on Monday and Thursday and ran into Matt Jones both times. Just my luck.
23) Speaking of Steve, he had some choice things to say to Vince McMahon at the conclusion of the Royal Rumble PPV
For the love of everything @wwe we DON'T want to see Batista and Orton!!

25) Well he didn’t actually say it TO Vince but he did speak his mind. And yes that is choice for Steve. Do you think Steve will change Vince’s mind?
