Pat Forde with Yahoo Sports noticed how quiet the Yum! Center seemed on Sunday. Between a smaller crowd than usual, a smaller student section, and a much quieter coach, the entire day felt different. Different doesn’t always mean bad, but only time will tell on how it plays out.
Just read this fascinating article from Yahoo Sports Pat Forde as he sat down with Coach P and recorded his thoughts and insights. Very telling info that I felt I must share. Enjoy!
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – On the wall outside the Louisville basketball locker room at the Yum Center, there is a big, framed picture from the happiest of times.
It’s from 2013, when the Cardinals won the national championship and visited the White House. Standing front and center is President Barack Obama, holding a Louisville jersey.

That would be Andre McGee.

For the past few weeks we have heard rumblings that Texas would throw the check book at Louisville AD Tom Jurich to take the same position at the University of Texas. Well according to Yahoo ‘s Pat Forde Tom Jurich will stay right here in Louisville. Late last night Forde released an article that stated from a source “He wants to stay with [Louisville president] Jim Ramsey,”. We all know what Jurich means to this University and this is just another sign of his total Loyalty to the city of Louisville. It sounds like Jurich has built his Empire here in the Ville and it looks like he’s not ready to leave anytime soon.
