BucketHatism: Spring Practice

“ALL RISE!!! Court is now in session. The honorable Bucket Hat King LJ tha Fiasco presiding. Please be seated and come to order”

Please be seated, the BHK is back off his weekend bender of wings, basketball and busted brackets to announce that the joy that is football is back for the month of April.  Today Bobby Petrino held his presser to give us all a glimpse of what to expect and what the team will be working on.  I know I am not the only Card fan that still has a sour taste in my mouth from how last season ended. We went from the highs of curb stomping FSU, receiving a visit from College Gameday, and a prime-time game in Death Valley to seeing Lamar nearly decapitated in Houston, watching the Governor’s Cup get kidnapped, and watching LSU do the cha-cha slide in our backfield for 4 quarters………but I digress.

The thing is, as young as this team was last year they are back and more experienced. More importantly they are pissed off at how they ended the season after being 9-1 on the verge of the playoffs.  Lamar winning the Heisman salvaged the disappointing ending but you have to think the team is still very much hungry for redemption.  Here some things, and players that the BHK is interested to see in the Spring game.

BucketHatism: Virginia

LJ

“ALL RISE!!! Court is now in session. The honorable Bucket Hat King LJ tha Fiasco presiding. Please be seated and come to order”

Good morning folks, the BHK would like to start off the court proceedings by giving a shoutout to the people who make Lisinopril and other blood pressure meds that keep the BHK from having a heart attack while watching the Cards.  We are used to having heart palpitations during basketball season but I don’t need to have them during football season too.  Also, shout out to Tim Sullivan aka Slim Tully who took the time to engage me in Twitter interaction after I lambasted and destroyed him last week. Most guys would block me, like Tom Davis. Most guys would run and hide, like Tom Davis. Most guys would throw rocks from their one bedroom Scott County Indiana apartment and then block me…..like Tom Davis. But not Slim Tully, he indicated he is a “big boy” and I must admit he earned some of my respect.  He lost it again after he posted a Louisville B-ball scandal story smack dab in the middle of a nail-biter Louisville football game.

Anyway, let’s get into the notes I took over the weekend while yelling at my TV and pacing a hole in the floor.   Any outbursts and you will be removed from the court by @VilleSportslaw. He doesn’t take kindly to outbursts and Indiana residents.

Friday Night Fight, Part 2: Louisville v. Duke

Last Time: The Duke Blue Devils marched to a 13-point lead in the second half, but behind Damion Lee’s 24 points, the Cardinals were able to rally back and take a 71-64 win over the Blue Devils, avenging their loss two weeks earlier at Cameron Indoor Arena.

Wait a minute, this is football we’re talking about here. Duke and Louisville have only played each other once, a 40-3 blowout victory for the Cardinals in 2002. Dave Ragone went 23/34 for 258 yards and two touchdowns, while Henry Miller accounted for 92 yards and a touchdown in the blowout victory. Louisville overcame four turnovers while holding Duke to 175 total yards.

Bobby Petrino VR Experience

Bobby Petrino

I imagine he was telling this ref that one day he would be a fruit ninja master. Maybe not but let’s see how Coach Bobby Petrino handles the world of Virtual Reality. If it’s a fraction of the way that he coaches then the other ACC coaches are in trouble.

Petrino> Stoops

20160621_192757

Petrino was trying to tell him in this picture but he didn’t listen. Bobby’s the better Coach. Hopefully Stoops called Bobby last Sunday to wish him a happy Father’s day. OK, I’m done. All jokes & facts aside, Athlon put out their list today ranking the D-1 coaches. Bobby came in at #12….Stoops came in at:
