Atlanta Dream Visiting? and V'Ball Lands a star -- Saturday Cardinal Couple
Atlanta Dream reps to meet with Media before Virginia game
Sunday is going to be a busy day down at the KFC YUM! Center. Not only are the WBB Cards hosting ACC opponent Virginia at 3 p.m...but a immediate release media advisory hit our inbox here at Cardinal Couple Thursday indicating that we should:
Please join representatives from the Atlanta Dream, including Shoni Schimmel, for a special announcement prior to the UofL WBB game at 2:15 p.m. The press conference is open to members of the media only.
( Whew...we barely squeaked in there on that last sentence...thank God for Worldwide Jeff !!! )
Atlanta Dream player Shoni Schimmel, Head Coach Michael Cooper, President & General Manager Angela Taylor and KFC YUM! Center event spokesperson Robbie Valentine will be available for questions and individual interviews.
We've debated the issue that could possibly be presented here at this pow-wow, e-mailed Ira Green, the affable WBB asst. SID to see if he'd leak us any advance scoop on it (no reply yet) and have come up with our own 10 things this could possibly be concerning. With no further adieu....here they are:
10) Cooper is going to make a public confession that he should have started Shoni more.
9) Cooper is going to reveal that Shoni beat him in a game of HORSE last Thursday.
8) The Dream is moving the franchise to Louisville.
7) Angela Taylor has moved to Louisville and is running for Lt. Gov. to replace Jerry Abramson.
6) Robbie Valentine has had a sex change and is suiting up for the Dream in 2015.
5) The four are recording an album and will tour it nationwide...the first stop being the KFC YUM! Center.
4) They found an extra semester of eligibility for Shoni and she'll be suiting up to play against Virginia.
3) The four are entering into one of the weirdest marriages one could ever envision...
2) They'll be presenting evidence that the Minnesota Lynx and Phoenix (whatevers) conspired to fix the 2014 WNBA season and the championship title will be awarded to Atlanta.
1) The Dream might be playing a game on Denny Crum Court.
Someone will tweet out the news before we'll post in on the website. Place your bets, place your bets...windows close at 2:14 p.m. Sunday.
VOLLEYBALL GETS A TRANSFER
Anne Kordes has hooked herself a good one when South Florida junior outside hitter Erin Fairs announced she'll be transferring to Louisville to play her senior season.
Fairs was named first-team All-Conference for the Bulls and led the team in kills, digs and points last season. She led the team in kills her sophomore and freshman years also.
The 5'11" outside hitter hails from Houston and Coach Kordes is impressed:
" I could not be more excited to welcome Erin to the Louisville Volleyball program. Erin had a standout career at USF as an outside hitter and will have the opportunity to make an immediate impact in our line-up"
She has also had over 1000 digs in her career...something that had to impress Kordes as well.
