Those were better times for the University of Louisville, no doubt. Myself, Steve Rummage and Jon Hancock were doing an episode of the critically acclaimed (Let’s roll with it) Cardinal Pulse. It was a video podcast and it was glorious. We did our show from Cluckers on campus at Cardinal Towne. The bracket was revealed, we all picked Louisville to win per usual and it was a great day and a great month. Fast forward to today. No I didn’t insert the picture to bring anyone down but to raise everyone’s spirits. We won the National Championship! Of course with that being said, here we are at Selection Sunday with no shot to be selected. Like the kid in your class that has convinced himself he didn’t want to go to the prom anyway. Breath in and breath out.
If you have listened to the Cardinal Sports Zone show on Saturdays at 10am on ESPN 93.9 The Ville with your host Steve Rummage,(Cheap Pop) (He makes me say that) then you have heard how everyone is coping. I bought NCAA Basketball 2010 because I will have a postseason after all. We were all starting to heal and figure ways around March Sadness. Then we heard The Devil and John Barr or maybe Katina and The Devil, whichever way you prefer were going to be on ESPN this morning with huge new developments. At least that’s how ESPN promoted it until local journalists and bloggers united to quickly dispel that rumor. I did not watch the show nor will I. It is my job however to provide a place for you to find all things UofL, good or bad. I have been told by multiple friends that there was nothing new. The title of this story was making fun of ESPN. The same fine people who brought you NCAA 2016 featuring Ben Simmons.
So here is the clip of the huge new development where they ambush Andre, hold him hostage and he spills the beans. At least that is what ESPN would have liked you to believe.
