A Tale Of Two Cultures

art-briles-mac

Some people will do everything and ignore anything just to keep slandering your name.

Like most Louisville fans and supporters, I’ve reached a point where I’ve just grown tired of constantly hearing about UK fan Katina Powell and that whole scandal. We know that there was a grad assistant that paid for strippers/dancers for recruits and players. We know that Rick Pitino had an extramarital affair in the past. We know that Bobby Petrino also did the same thing, even if he wasn’t even our coach at the time. We know about Porcini. We know about the motorcycle. We know.

How do we know? Well, we have our good friends at all facets of the national sports media to always be there and remind us. Everyone from ESPN, to CBS Sports, to FS1, and so on and so forth reminding us nearly every time Louisville takes the court of all the acts that went down in Minardi Hall, with every single mention of it being followed up by vehement criticism. We have the likes of Michael Rosenberg crafting slam pieces with obvious negative bias. Even as recent as last night, we have people like Jay Williams criticizing Louisville’s culture simply because a player missed curfew.

The NFL’s 2016 season saw action from 22 former Louisville Cardinals on 15 different teams, with at least one player representing each position in football. The 2016 NFL Draft also felt the Louisville Cardinals’ presence, with the selection of Sheldon Rankins with the 12th overall pick. The Bills, Steelers and Jets feature multiple former Cards on their rosters, with the Steelers having 2 and both the Bills & Jets having 4 (The Bears also had multiple prior to Greg Scruggs being waived). 3 postseason teams have former Cards on their rosters (Steelers, Dolphins, Patriots), as well as the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots (Greg Scruggs).
