2015 season against UK was in Cardinals favor
Yes, yesterday's loss to UK in men's basketball was disappointing. It looked like Louisville had multiple opportunities to win the game...unfortunately, the scoreboard never lies. I would have loved to see Lee's final shot drop. We all would have that wear the red. It didn't. We move on.
Despair over UofL losses in 2015 to UK? No need...
The Cards won the head-to-head matchups 8-5.
Let's take a look.
UofL men's athletic programs were 5-1 against UK in 2015. Louisville won in baseball twice, in football, soccer and swimming against Kentucky. Men's basketball was the only loss.
UofL women's athletic squads were 3-4 against UK women's teams. Wins in swimming, golf and softball. Losses in basketball, soccer, softball and volleyball.
Louisville wins the 2015 head-to-head matchups 8-5.
Anytime you lose to a rival, we know...it hurts. Louisville won the majority of the contest against our foe down I-64 though...so if any of your UK friends get too boastful about yesterday's win....throw 8-5 at them.
Little brother and sister? Nah....how about the dominant sibling and best in state? Red beats blue. More often than not. Some of you grouse that we didn't beat them in women's basketball. That's like complaining about the mashed potatoes at a sumptuous seven-course meal.
Just think if UK was gender-accessible enough to offer field hockey and lacrosse as DI sports? Woulda been 10-5.
Scoreboard doesn't lie.
Let's build upon that in 2016...
