Friday Cardinal Couple -- The road ahead for Louisville WBB


THURSDAY CARDINAL COUPLE

- What if.....

- GO CARDS!

-Saturday Radio....radio


We'll do a little anticipatory thinking today. What if the Louisville WBB crashes the Final Four Party? What if this #3 seed decides to continue the Unfinished Business tour and finds themselves in Nashville next week?

It is entirely possible, you know. Hosting a Regional and meeting an opponent on Sunday that was dispatched early in the season. There's no doubt Louisville is playing better basketball than back then. LSU is too...but Jeff Walz and crew will have had five days to prepare for them.

I like Louisville's chances.

"I miss UofLWBB in the zombie Apocalypse, little brother..."
After that, it comes down to a Tuesday night tussle against either Maryland or Tennessee. Let me make this perfectly clear. I want the Vols in that opposite slot. The weakest one seed..a seed that should have been Louisville's. I hope 5000 Orange clad fans make the 4 hour drive from Knoxville to witness the carnage, the beatdown and the Louisville victory. I hope they eat in our downtown restaurants, stay in hotels and buy stuff from local merchants.

And then go home. Quietly.

Louisville beat them last year to earn a trip to the Final Four. Here's to history repeating itself.

Do NOT allow this guy and girl in Nashville
Let's face it. Most of the nation wants to see an NCAA Women's Championship game with Notre Dame and UConn. Not this guy. He wants to see Kentucky knock off the Irish and DePaul stun the UConn Huskies.

I could care less who comes out of the Stanford region. I have South Carolina in my bracket picks. Yeah, they'll do...

What a wildly fun and eye-popping time in Nashville...without Irish and Huskies...it could be. Cats and Cards II - the Nashville Chronicles.

I know...I probably won't get the Final Four I'd like to see and the rest of the nation would dread. They want to see the UnBeatens slug it out. I want to see the underdogs and the scorned show up in Nashville. 

And then to see the Cards beat the Cats on a neutral court and advance to a NCAA Showdown against DePaul, South Carolina or Stanford? All the talking heads on ESPN would be jumping out of second floor windows in Bristol or moving cars on the Interstate.
 
Charlie Creme would resign and move to New Guinea to raise soybeans. Kevin "KneeGandhi"...goes on a bender and ends up married to Kara Lawson in a Vegas wedding chapel.


Exactly. Let's add a little habernero to the oatmeal. Let's shake it up and send the preferred, the chosen ones, the establishment home early. Let's dance with the prom queen..spike the punch and eat nachos at a five start restaurant. Time to crash another party...ruin a lot of bracket picks and go dancin'. 

Finish the unfinished business ATayy, Shoni, Nita and Tia.

If you can possibly do it...buy your tickets and go to the KFC YUM! Center Sunday and Tuesday. Take a friend. Wear RED. It's the most wonderful time of the year.

WE WOULD BE REMISS IF WE DID NOT WISH OUR UOFL MEN'S TEAM THE BEST OF LUCK IN TONIGHT'S REMATCH AGAINST THE UK WILDCATS. INDY IS GOING TO BE NUTS TODAY, TONIGHT AND IT SHOULD BE A GREAT GAME.

  1. Hey Paulie! The Tigers have only 8 players available to play. A season ending knee injury to Raigyne Moncriefe in the opening round and a concussion to Jeanne Kenney against WV have those two out for the remainder of their season. Moncriefe really impressed me in the early season meeting at YUM. She scored 13 and Kenney 11. It will be hard for the Tigers to make that up.
    I think it would have been a tough battle for LSU regardless, but this most recent news stacks the deck unfavorably for them. We play the game for a reason, though. Hope our Cards are mentally focused and are not looking ahead to an E8 matchup, they can leave that to us fans!

    1. Jenny, I agree. My first thought when I saw the news about Kenney was "overconfidence" but I quickly dismissed that...I don't think Walz will let that happen. Cards do need to keep the Hammond and Taylor on the floor. Walton did a great job eating up a bunch of minutes on Tuesday, but LSU is much tougher inside than is Iowa.

    2. Yeah, that was going to be one of the points I was going to elaborate on in Saturday's Cardinal Couple and on the radio show. Thersea Piasance is still at center, tho...and that IS a cause for concern.

  2. I was sorry to hear about Kenney. As a senior her college career is over. Unless the wheels fall off we should be in pretty good shape vs. LSU.

    It's a bit off topic but with our men taking on UK tonight I thought some of you would find this interesting. I didn't know that basketball was such a huge moneymaker for UL.

  3. Jeff Walz reported tonight that < 9000 tickets sold for Sunday. Where are the TN fans?
