The good people with the Red Rage Tailgate, who you should definitely try to find this year and tailgate with at least once, have gotten one over on some Clemson fans. When the new uniforms were released for UofL, and the crazy cardinal bird that just came out of pet cemetery was on there, the Red Rage had a little fun with photoshop.

Michaelee Harris came to the University of Louisville for Charlie Strong’s FIRST season as head coach back in 2010. He still has one year of eligibility remaining, and he will use that at Akron in 2015. Countless knee injuries have led to Harris having a sixth year of eligibility.

Maverick Rowan down to three schools; Cards not included

I guess there never really is a sure thing, especially in recruiting. I, for one, was certain that if 4-star small forward Maverick Rowan were to reclassify to 2015, you could book it that he would be a Louisville Cardinal. Then it was announced that he was enrolled in the classes that would allow him to graduate and be in the 2015 class, and suddenly something had happened and either the Cards were no longer recruiting Rowan, or Rowan was not interested in UofL anymore. It doesn’t really matter which is true; that is secondary at this point.

He is really doing it. Chinanu Onuaku is shooting free throws underhanded in the FIBA World Championship games, and I hope he keeps it up for this season at UofL. In yesterday’s 83-53 win over Iran, Onuaku finished with 2 points, 5 rebounds (all offensive), 2 assists, and only 1 foul in 14 minutes. He was 2-4 from the free throw line. Here is video of one of those makes.

BREAKING NEWS!!!!! More Four Your Info

I’ve decided to suddenly return to a summer series of my ‘Four Your Information’ for a second season. With much to say and a lack of desire to split into many 140 character Twitter posts, I’d like to check back in with the Card faithful. Let’s face it, basketball in now officially over for several months. On Thursday, Cardnation watched as the last remaining¬†national champions, Montrezl Harrell and Wayne Blackshear, departed from the Ville to take this life thing head on. ¬†I guess I’m in the same position. Now here’s, as I’ll call it, the ‘Starting Line Up’… Im the player & the coach.

Terry Rozier drafted by Boston Celtics 16th overall

If there is anyone that used the workouts with NBA teams to improve his draft stock, it was Terry Rozier. Thought to be a second rounder, Rozier worked his way up in the months leading up to the draft to maybe the mid-late 20s in the first round. He impressed the Boston Celtics even more than that, as they took him with the 16th pick overall.

Calling on fans to donate items for a silent auction!

Pete Nochta 2

OK Cards fans, time to step up to the plate here. This is late notice, but we are looking for items for the silent auction on Friday at the fundraiser for Pete Nochta. Autographed items, tickets to games or other events, gift cards….anything that you think people would be interested in bidding on. Obviously UofL-related stuff is great, but it doesn’t have to be limited to that at all. Money is money when it comes to things like this.

If you have something you would like to donate, e-mail me at CardinalSportsZone@yahoo.com and let me know what you have and we will talk from there.

If you have no idea what this is for, please click here.
