Press release from the University of Louisville athletic department:
Toy Collection Planned for Dec. 11 Men’s Basketball Game
LOUISVILLE, Ky. — New toys will be collected and subsequently donated to Norton’s Children’s Hospital prior to the Cardinals’ Dec. 11 men’s basketball game against Bryant. New toys for any age or gender will be collected at the entrance of the KFC Yum! Center. A group of the toys will also be provided to the Home of the Innocents and Wesley House.
This past Saturday afternoon the Louisville Cardinals polished off the Syracuse Orange with an unimaginable dunk from Donovan Mitchell. Many of you didn’t see it because you were on your way to your car but that’s a story for another time. Anyway, after Mitchell threw down that dunk, I couldn’t help but think that Syracuse has been on the wrong end of many great sports memories for the fans of Louisville athletics. Let’s reminisce over those good times. Read the rest of this entry
Kyle Kuric continues to amaze me. He has teamed up with a couple of former wildcats and attended the Kids Cancer Alliance camp in Bagdad Ky to play ball and share stories with kids battling cancer. Read the rest of this entry
Here are some of the highlights from the last few days of the NBA Summer League from Las Vegas, Nevada. The highlights come from @UofLFanBase and are very well done.
I have made no secret about the fact that I survived a brain tumor. I openly share my story in hopes that it can help somebody going through the same thing or that it might give hope to someones family.
Some people are into tattoos and some people aren’t. No matter which side you are on allow me to introduce you to Jesse Korfhage. Jesse is a Sergeant in the U.S. Army (Of course he is). Thank you for your service. When Jesse gets a tattoo he goes hard in the paint…..literally.

Great news came out today in the Kuric camp as the following announcement was made on Twitter:
I’ve been on vacation for a week therefore I have a lot to catch up on so this week’s edition of Nunnsense will be a potpourri of topics. I was enjoying my family time on vacation so much that I didn’t even watch the college basketball national championship game. I knew that since I didn’t watch there would be an epic finish. And of course, I was correct. Congrats to Villanova. I took the vacation week and removed myself completely from the sports world. Well, almost……..
I’m just gonna let this video speak for itself. Louisville first, Cards forever.
We released a top stories of all time segment on Monday. One name that appeared often was Kyle Kuric. People read a ton of our Kyle Kuric stories. Heck, even on Monday when I reposted the Kyle Kuric story that was in the top 10 from last year, it got as many views as a new story would. Today I was looking through my time line and seen this video (h/t @CardChronicle) and I knew I had to share it. As someone who inspires others to lose weight and get healthy it is very difficult for others to inspire me. Kyle Kuric is a walking inspiration to me. Without further adieu, here is the latest Kyle Kuric video. Shout out to his wife, my friend Taraneh, and the twins and Kyle’s family for being so strong and lifting him up. You are all truly inspirational. Go Cards!
This is a very different and unusual March Madness for all of us in the Cardinal family. We have grown accustomed to winning conference tournaments, NCAA tournament games, Final Fours and even an NCAA championship. With all that success we have made the target on our back bigger and bigger. The more you win, the more people outside of your family want to see you fail. They build you up just to tear you down. It’s just a natural reaction. Now that we are not competing in post season play and awaiting NCAA notice of allegations, people are looking for anything and everything to pile on. Everyone wants to be the person to break the story that puts the nail in our coffin. I blame social media for that. I want to take this time to remind you that over the next month or so we will be hearing all kinds of stories, reports and rumors of things that are not true or have no bearing on our current situation. We will see tweets, Facebook posts, memes, quotes taken out of context and unfounded articles that make fun of us, ridicule us or just try to make us angry. We must ignore and endure. I also want to take this time to remind you of the old saying “the night is darkest just before dawn.”
Was scrolling through my Facebook today and seen this video. As you all know, we at CardinalSportsZone have kept in touch with Kyle, his wife and his dad throughout his journey. I am extremely happy to see this video and see he is doing well. I wanted to share this with you. Congrats on getting back to the basketball court Kyle. Go Cards!
After undergoing his third surgery, Kyle Kuric says on twitter that he has been released from the hospital! This surgery was planned and was not an emergency, but it is great news to hear that he is on the road to recovery.
Kyle Kuric underwent another surgery today, but this one was not a surprise. We knew this one was coming. In fact, it was originally scheduled for last Wednesday but they moved it to today, which I thought was good because then Kyle got to enjoy Thanksgiving with his family. Kuric’s mom Judi posted this update on Facebook.
If you missed it, or want to watch it again, here is video of Kyle Kuric addressing the UofL fans at the KFC Yum! Cetner during the North Florida game. This was during a timeout so there wasn’t much time, but it was incredible to see!
Kyle Kuric’s dad just gave another update on Facebook, and it is another great one! Now Kyle is walking around a little bit and he continues to improve. We appreciate his family giving these updates.
Rick Pitino met with the media on Thursday afternoon to cover a slew of topics. He talks about Kyle Kuric, the two newest signings Frankie Hughes and VJ King, and talks about his current team. The Cards take on Samford Friday night at 7:00.
Great video from TheCrunchZone.com here.
From Steve Kuric on Facebook:
The following was posted around noon today by Kyle Kuric’s wife, Taraneh Momeni Kuric…
I don’t know where to begin. I want everyone to know how appreciative my family and Kyle are for all your thoughts and prayers. I knew Kyle was loved by many but the amount of support we have received has been surreal. I feel like I owe everyone details.
