Nunnsense; Rick vs. Denny, You Can Love Both

165538724.0

In 2001 I heard rumors that Rick Pitino would likely be the coach to replace Denny Crum. Ironically, it was said that Pitino was choosing between Michigan and Louisville. It was also said that ultimately he chose Louisville because Michigan was a football school and he didn’t want to play second fiddle to any other sport. Of course all of these ” somebody said” things were all rumors but I believed all of them. I judged Rick right off the bat. I know that’s not fair but I fell victim to the media perception of his larger than life ego and his all about me attitude.

Alhaji Mohammed: Champion Again

alhajimo

cham·pi·on
ˈCHampēən/
noun
noun: champion; plural noun: champions
1.
a person who has defeated or surpassed all rivals in a competition, especially in sports.
synonyms: winner, titleholder, defending champion

 

Alhaji Mohammed is all of the above once again. Last night he led his team to his second consecutive Romanian league championship. He led the way with 27 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists for the back to back to champions from Ploiesti. Alhaji, a proud University of Louisville Cardinal, was a part of the past two. Most people don’t know that Alhaji is around the city for most of the summer and does a lot for the community. In my opinion, he has also been key with the development of Preston Knowles, Peyton Siva and Russ Smith as he works out with them all summer and they respect and look up to him. They have a strong bond between them, he refers to them as his Thundercats. This is the tenth year overseas for Alhaji and he hopes the titles aren’t done yet.

 

We at CSZ also want to congratulate Alhaji on another winning season and hope for many more as well.

Here’s the video that everyone loves featuring Alhaji:

Who Is Your All-Time Starting 5 Of Rick Pitino Players at UofL: Jeremy

FF05

Fans’s Starting 5

Steve’s Starting 5

Daryl’s Starting 5

Justin’s Starting 5

I am gonna start this off by being honest. I went to UofL to finish my Bachelors degree from 05-06 and was around that basketball team 365 since I had so many friends on that team. I may be a little biased. I may not be. Who knows? Oh yeah, I do. Well here goes my top 5 UofL players of the Rick Pitino Era.

Yes that’s a Rick Pitino bobblehead I got in 05 looking over my signed Final Four ball. I truly believe it is bugged……Sorry coach

Who is your starting 5 of Rick Pitino players at UofL?

Villanova v Louisville

My friend Chris Tingley posed this question to me a couple of weeks ago, and it is very interesting and fun to talk about. Of all the players that Rick Pitino has coached at the University of Louisville, who would be your starting 5? Now I will say that some players did play multiple positions, and after discussion, we decided to only have each player on 1 poll. So guys like Francisco Garcia, Larry O’Bannon, Ellis Myles, and Samardo Samuels had to be placed in only 1 category, even though we are well aware that those guys (and others) could be on different polls.

Please vote for each position. This will run until the end of the week on Thursday night, so that will give us time to get the word out all week and get as many people as possible to vote on this.

Revisiting the “Miracle on Main”

By Justin Renck:

It took less than 1 season for the KFC Yum! Center to host a signature victory for the Cards. Down by 18 with 5:36 left, they did what not many thought was possible. Led by Preston Knowles, the Cards came all the way back to win this game. Enjoy the video!
