Oval-Commons-University-of-Louisville

Chuck Smrt’s employment by the University of Louisville has been questioned by many individuals in the last few months. His questionable guidance through the Katina Powell and Andre McGee scandal led to Louisville possibly losing our 2013 banner. Somehow, he still has a contract through UofL. This was discussed yesterday, and you can listen to interim president Greg Postel and Bill Stone discuss his tenure below.

 

Thank You Tom: A Tribute to the Legacy of Tom Jurich

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.

Nunnsense | Is Tyra The Answer Or The Relief Pitcher?

If you listened to the introductory press conference of acting athletic director Vince Tyra and you were not impressed, then I’m not sure what will ever impress you. He said everything we wanted to hear and he said it with passion and confidence. For many, that was their first encounter with him because he said he keeps a low profile. He needed to make a great first impression – and he did. Most of us were sold right there on the spot.

But are you buying that he is the future? I believe that he could definitely be what the University needs to re-establish the athletic brand back to where it should be and where the fans expect it to be. Read the rest of this entry

Nunnsense: Hey Rick, What Happened To Louisville First?

 

IMG_6652

The thoughts & words written by Jeff Nunn do not necessarily reflect the views of CardinalSportsZone.com

Rick Pitino was the first person to say, “Louisville First, Cards Forever.” He said that the University, as well as himself, need to be reborn or rebranded so he came up with the slogan. He said that players needed to play for the name on the front of the jersey rather than only being concerned with the name on the back.

The University of Louisville Athletics Department quickly adopted the slogan and in March of 2012, launched a campaign that encouraged fans to use the slogan – “Louisville First, Cards Forever” and #L1C4 (Twitter hashtag) on all their social media. Read the rest of this entry

Louisville Officially Responds To The NCAA Appeals Panel

The University of Louisville filed the paperwork to appeal the ruling from the NCAA committee of infractions. In Jeff Greer’s article below, he says that “The school said it would accept several other penalties, including the NCAA’s docking of four men’s basketball scholarships over the next four years; a $5,000 institutional fine; and a requirement that prospects on unofficial visits stay off-campus.” Louisville also called the COI’s ruling “draconian, ” which is an adjective that means rigorous; unusually severe or cruel. I think we can all agree on that. Greer also states that “The COI had 30 days from Wednesday to respond to U of L’s appeal. After that paperwork is filed, U of L gets another two weeks to send a rebuttal. Then the NCAA’s enforcement staff has 10 days to add its reply before U of L gets 10 more days to counter.

The hearing in front of the appeals committee, a small panel of college and conference administrators and lawyers, will be set after the exchange of documents.”

Read the full article below for much more and some very interesting details that lead me to believe that the banner will stay. Read the rest of this entry

The University of Louisville has until August 9th to file its written response to the NCAA Infractions Committee. Louisville will do so and will appeal the financial penalty and the vacation of records ordered in June by the NCAA’s Committee on Infractions. “U of L also told the NCAA that it wished to have the organization’s Infractions Appeals Committee hold an in-person hearing instead of basing the appeal only on written correspondence.” – Per the Courier-Journal.
