The Louisville Baseball Cardinals continued their dominant season by going 4-0 against Purdue and Georgia Tech this past week, and outscoring them 31-7. This now puts the number two team in the nation at 31-4 overall, and 15-3 in ACC play.
Well, against most of the nation’s wishes (*cough cough* Lunardi and Jerry Palm), Louisville has drawn the No. 2 seed in the Midwest region.
Louisville will face former WKU head coach Ray Harper’s Jacksonsville State in the opening round. Michigan is the 7-seed pitted against the 10-seed Oklahoma State Cowboys. The 3-seed is Oregon, who fell a seed line after losing senior Chris Boucher to a torn-ACL. Purdue is the 4-seed and Kansas is the No. 1 seed in the Midwest region.
This really couldn’t have been a better draw for the Cardinals. A 2-seed and the 3-seed being Oregon without their shot-blocking big man is more than anyone could have asked for. Now the Cards have to take care of business, let the Madness ensue.
Also, cool stat, the only 2 times Louisville has been a 2-seed? 1980 and 1986, anyways, carry on.
The BHK has decided to help fund his wedding by teaching classes at an unnamed and un-accredited University here in Louisville. I would tell you the University and location but I am no snitch, unlike graduates from IU. So after some of the basketball games I will be providing lecture notes and taking shots at Tom Crean because I can and he is too busy smooching his son to read this anyway.
As most everyone knows the internet was broken yesterday when Jon Rothstein reported that the University of Louisville would host Ohio State in the 2016 ACC-Big10 Challenge. Jaquan this. We just played them that. Everyone was up in arms and was ready to mob OSU as they rolled up to the YUM. We all ran with it because CBS Sports is a credible source. Today there was a different opponent announced via Louisville SID Kenny Klein:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The University of Louisville men’s basketball team will face Purdue in the 2016 ACC/Big Ten Challenge on Nov. 30 in the KFC Yum! Center.
