UofL Football fans can catch a glimpse of a promising future tonight at 6 pm on ESPN2. Signees Robert Hicks III and Chandler Jones will play in the Under Armour All-America game at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, FL.
Hicks is a highly touted ILB who looks physically ready to step in and play a big role for UofL next year. He is a physical beast with great instincts and speed to burn. Hicks is a triple threat because he can play zone coverage, rush the passer, and be a wall through which no opposing RB can pass. UofL can definitely use him with the departure of Stacy Thomas.

Congrats to UofL Commit Tutu Atwell as his team, the Miami Northwestern Bulls, routed Naples High School Friday night 42-7 to advance to the FL 6A Title game. It’s the first time Northwestern has played in the title game since 2008, when a sophomore QB by the name of Teddy Bridgewater led them.
Atwell played well rushing 5 times for 45 yards and a TD. He also was 3 of 6 passing for 32 yards. He didn’t play the entire second half, however, as he injured his ankle late in the first half.
Both Atwell and his coach told the Miami Herald he would’ve gone back in, but with the lead the team had built he was held out for precautionary reasons.
We here at Cardinal Sports Zone wish him luck in the title game.
The University of Louisville fired athletic director Tom Jurich with just cause. What is that cause? Postel and other members of the board of trustees have condemned Tom of being a bully, and having little to no transparency while he held the position. Elaine Wise, chairperson of the department of humanities, begs to differ. In her performance review of Tom Jurich, she had nothing but praise and compliments regarding his leadership skills and abilities. You can read the full story below courtesy of the Courier Journal.

After trying out for the NFL, Paulus joined the ranks of college basketball again. This time as a coach. In 2010, he was hired as an assistant coach at Navy. Then in 2011, he was hired by Thad Matta to the position of video coordinator for the Ohio State University basketball team. Eventually, in 2013, Matta promoted him to assistant coach and he coached there through last season.
Paulus was born in Ohio and raised in Wisconsin until his family settled in Syracuse, NY, where he attended high school at Christian Brothers Academy.

All good things must come to an end. I didn’t see Tom Jurich’s tenure coming to an end in such an inglorious fashion. I enjoyed having him as Athletic Director of my Alma Mater because I believe he cared about UofL Athletics as much as I do.
I was born here in Louisville, raised here in Louisville, and I graduated from Louisville. I am Louisville. UofL sports is woven into the intricate fabric of Louisville. I love the games, the atmosphere, the camaraderie of fans, the players, and the games. It’s all wondrous to me. And to me, the face of UofL Athletics wasn’t a coach, it was Tommy “The Turtleneck” Jurich.

WDRB’s Bill Lamb, in his “Point of View” editorial segment last night, offered his opinion on the situation between the UofL Board of Trustees and suspended Athletic Director Tom Jurich.
Lamb explains that he believes that Tom Jurich should be retained. He argues that Jurich’s full body of work should be taken into account. Speaking on Jurich, Lamb says, “No person in the history of the University has done more to build it into what it is today than Tom Jurich.” He specifically mentions Jurich’s work in getting UofL into the ACC as a major factor for retaining him.
Lamb believes that the posturing by certain Board members and their rabid attempt to oust Jurich, “has a lot more to do with their egos than what’s right for UofL.”
When speaking of the certain, unnamed Board members, Lamb states, “I believe there are Board members who are willing tear UofL down just to show how powerful they’ve become. It’s all about them, not the University.”
He also mentions that some big money donors hope to persuade other Board members to step up, do the right thing, and vote to keep Jurich.
