Need something to get you through this Monday? How about 20 minutes of Lamar Jackson’s greatest moments? Thanks to Just Bomb Productions, we’ve got just that for you.
Lamar Jackson is a once in a life time athlete who made his mark not only on the University of Louisville record books, but college football record books as well. With the NFL draft just one week away, Lamar remains the draft’s biggest story. Lamar Jackson is ready for the NFL, but is the league ready for him? Mina Kimes and Domonique Foxworth with The Undefeated talk about how Lamar can change the NFL, if it’ll allow it.
Danny Oriente and Jake Snider delivered multi-hit games with two RBIs each, including Snider’s two-run homer in the sixth inning, to give Louisville (25-11) an 8-2 win over Kentucky (25-12), splitting their rivalry series at 1-1. The win extended Louisville’s winning streak to five games, and is the Cardinals’ ninth in their last 11 against their in-state rival.
Kentucky jumped ahead early with a solo home run in the third inning from Trey Dawson. Despite the Wildcats getting an early lead, the Cardinals rebounded with plenty of offense this time around. A pair of RBI singles from Danny Oriente and Josh Stowers in the fourth inning gave Louisville the lead, one they would never relinquish.
The Cardinals added four runs in the fifth inning and two more in the sixth, punctuated with Jake Snider’s two-run homer in the latter inning. In the fifth though, Louisville scored a run on a bases-loaded walk, then an RBI fielder’s choice by Stowers that allowed Snider to reach home safely. Devin Mann stole home while Josh Stowers was jammed between the bases, resulting in Stowers reaching second. Oriente followed it up with an RBI double that would bring Stowers home.
Kentucky scored a run in the eighth inning on an RBI groundout from Luke Becker. Gavin Sullivan would later close the inning, and Sam Bordner retired the side in the ninth to seal the win for Louisville.
With the NFL draft only 1 week away, the NFL mock draft sites are getting more traffic than Shelbyville road during the week before Christmas. And with the University of Louisville having several players that are likely to get drafted, us Louisville fans are contributing to that traffic. Most of us are trying to figure out where Lamar Jackson will be tormenting defenses for the next few years.

Coach Mack talks about his plans to bring competitiveness and intensity to the program and why the Louisville job was too good to pass up.
Is it Rookie of the Year or Shade Thrower of the Year??
Donovan Mitchell and Ben Simmons are in a head to head battle for the NBA’s coveted Rookie of the Year award. And neither are going down without a fight.
It’s been the biggest NBA feud we’ve seen since Russel Westbrook and Kevin Durant. Honestly, Donovan and Ben’s feud is highly entertaining.
The two have taken shot after shot. If it were a three-point contest, Simmons would be hitting 0%.
Simmons did an interview earlier in the week in which he stated he should 100% get the Rookie of the Year award. I mean, he has a good case. But, then, Simmons threw some MAJOR shade saying nobody else is even close.
Excuse me, sir, but, there’s this dude in the Western Conference tearing it up.
Donovan Mitchell clapped back with the following tweet:
But, on Tuesday evening, Donovan threw storm cloud level shade. The TRUE rookie walked into the arena with a clear message on his hoodie.
He ain’t play. And we’re all here for it.
* insert popcorn gif here *
How do you watch this clip and not love Donny Buckets??
It’s been a heated Rookie of the Year battle between Ben Simmons and Donovan Mitchell.
Simmons and Mitchell are the two clear front runners for the award. Some say both should get the award.
But, Draymond Green thinks Donovan Mitchell is the true ROY.
Donovan thanked Draymond by ending his career.
I only hope he yelled, “THAT’S FOR RUSS,” when Draymond hit the floor.
