-Louisville Volleyball faces Marquette today

-Volleyball gets several AAC honors

-Teddy Ballgame -- Cards headed to Mouseville


The VolleyCards participate in first round NCAA Volleyball action today...drawing the Marquette Golden Eagles in Champaign, IL.  The match is schedule for 5:30 p.m. and the winner will face the winner of the Morehead St. vs. Illinois contest.

M.U. and Louisville have a knowledge of each other, familiarity and history. The squads did battle three times in the 2012 season...Louisville winning all three matches, including the BIG EAST Tournament finals. Marquette is ranked this year, coming into today's action 24th. in the nation.

It is a tough first round match-up for Louisville. Marquette took the BIG EAST volleyball tournament with a 3-1win over Creighton. A weakened conference with Louisville, Notre Dame, Syracuse and Pitt gone..but still an impressive season for the Golden Eagles.

OMAHA, Neb. - The No. 24 Marquette women's volleyball team won the 2013 BIG EAST Championship by defeating Creighton, 3-1, on Saturday, Nov. 30, at D.J. Sokol Arena.
It was the first BIG EAST volleyball crown for Marquette, which entered the championship and as the league's regular-season champion and top seed.
The Golden Eagles (25-5) claimed the league's automatic NCAA Championship bid and will compete in the tournament for the third straight year.

The AAC does not sponsor a conference tournament.

If Louisville can get by Marquette and (most likely) Illinois, they would move to regional action. Regional sites are in Lexington, Champaign, Lincoln, NE and Los Angeles.

No TV or radio for this one that we know of. Our staff columnist Jeff McAdams is in Champaign to witness the wide net action...but failed to respond to texts about coverage here at CARDINAL COUPLE or the radio show Saturday.

Nice honors for the team from the AAC. Caitlin Welch received Libero of the Year honors, Maya McClendon Freshman of the Year and Anne Kordes Coach of the Year.

Five Cards made the AAC first team...Katie George, Emily Juhl, Brooke Mattingly, Maya McClendon and Caitlin Welch.
Randi Ewing received second team honors.

Amazingly, a South Florida player...Erin Fairs...was named conference player of the year. A slap in the Cards face, no doubt related to the fact that Louisville is only in the AAC for this year. Any of Louisville's first team players were deserving of the award and Louisville did go 18-0 in conference play.

What else would you expect, though, from a conference that didn't hold a tournament and chooses Memphis and Temple as travel partners?

FINALLY, CONGRATULATIONS TO THE LOUISVILLE FOOTBALL TEAM FOR FINISHING 11-1 IN THE REGULAR SEASON AND GETTING AN INVITE TO THE RUSSELL ATHLETIC BOWL IN ORLANDO, FL. ON DEC. 28TH.

THE CARDS WON AN EXCITING BATTLE IN CINCINNATI LAST NIGHT 31-24 IN OVERTIME. IF TEDDY BRIDGEWATER ISN'T THE PLAYER OF THE YEAR IN THE AAC THEN THE WHOLE BUNCH OF 'EM AT CONFERENCE HEADQUARTERS ARE MORE STUPID THAN BEETLE BAILEY.

BRIDGEWATER WAS AMAZING LAST NIGHT, PUTTING THE CARDS ON HIS BACK AND CARRYING THEM IN THE FOURTH QUARTER TO REGAIN THE LEAD TWICE AND THEN TO THE WINNING TD IN OVERTIME.

WE DON'T USUALLY COVER FOOTBALL HERE AT CC, BUT WHEN WE DO...WE PREFER DOS EQUIS  SEEING TEDDY TOUCHDOWN TRIUMPH. 

ENJOY MOUSEVILLE, FOOTBALL FANS!

  1. Yup, I'm on my way top Champaign (not there yet). If the Cards won tonight, a call for the show should be doable, otherwise I'll be on my way back to Louisville and would be on the road during the show most likely.

  2. Listened to Jeff's radio ESPN360 show last night and enjoyed it. Glad to see that the women have a radio platform.

    Did not see the person speaking of purchased but not used priority seats as a whinner. To look down from your season ticket seat at empty but great location seats and not be able to find a solution is not a good thing.

    I did notice that UK had the same issue but where the game was declared as sold out which prevented others to see the game fromn any seat.

    Apparently others agree as the school has made a decision to track ticket usage then later attempt to assist in the sharing of those tickets to others.

  3. There are also websites at other schools who have ticket exchange forums. Might not be a bad idea here at Louisville. RIVALS would be a candidate but since they do not have a Louisville women's basketball forum, probably not...

  4. I have set up a ticket exchange forum on the RiGHT SIDE of the SITE if anyone wants to trade, sell, give away, exchange or needs UOFL WBB tickets. Remember, CARDINAL COUPLE is a non-profit 501c, makes nothing from this and sclapers will be deleted after being reported to the authorities

  5. Shocked at the news but grateful the event occurred while surrounded by friends, family and a great medical team. Good wishes and thoughts are sent to her.

    Weird that both Nita and Goodin Rogers had blood clots this year. I have not heard of a reason for GR's clot.

  6. No disrespect to the volleyball or softball team but it is pretty clear why they don't get the attention or excitement as the women's basketball team. They usually stumble in post season play. It is very disappointing that they couldn't win a single set with the experience and talent they have

    Prayers up to Ms. Slaughter
