How are we doing? -- TUESDAY CARDINAL COUPLE

Opinions matter to us here at Cardinal Couple.

As we get ready to roll into another season of UofL women's athletics, it's time to ask the question..."How are we doing?" 

Cardinal Couple's mission statement is to promote the joy and excitement of UofL women's athletics from a fan's viewpoint. It is helpful and beneficial for us ask and know whether we are fulfilling that quest in your eyes. 

How are we doing? 

Whether you are a long-time reader or just recently stumbled upon our site, your response is important to us. After all, if we aren't putting articles out there that interest you...we've failed in our mission quest. 

I've heard from time to time that our comprehensive coverage of a wide variety of women's sports at UofL is a good thing. Readers get a little information about a sport or player that they may not have followed or known. I've also heard that our women's basketball coverage is the main reason that we get read. 

It's important, also, to realize what Cardinal Couple is. 

We present a daily article for your viewing just about everyday of the year. Between me, Jeff, Case and Jared (our current writing staff) and the occasional contribution from David Watson..we end up with a wide variety of topics, thoughts and viewpoints. I also think it's important to remember a couple of things as well.

1)  Dave-O and I are the only "retired" writers of the crew. Our other three writers are still in the workforce and combine their love of Louisville women's athletics with the everyday complexities of earning a paycheck. 

2) We are non-profit. We do what we do here for love of sport, of game, of program and the components that make these entities what they are. Some good news on that front. For years, we have made November our annual "donation month" -- where we have come to you -- hat in hand -- and asked for your financial help.

We have reached the point, though, where that will no longer be needed. We now have a group of great sponsors, including one very generous one who prefers to remain anonymous, that have stepped up to help us cover the costs associated with Cardinal Couple. The past donations from individuals will always be appreciated -- as we like to say: 

"You are Cardinal Couple and we never forget that".

So...sound off. 

-- What is it that you like about Cardinal Couple? --

-- What would you like to see more of? --

-- Are there areas where we could do a better job? -- 

-- Why do you read our articles? -- 

-- How are we doing? --

You are fans. We are fans. Please take a moment to share your thoughts with us. Help us "do what we do" better. 

Have a terrific Tuesday!



  1. You all rock! Keep on, keeping on. Thank you for what you do. The uniqueness of this website is beautiful, man. Beautiful.

    Curtis "Don't you go changing" Franklin

  2. I first started reading your website when a close friend of mine told me her daughter was headed to Louisville to play Lacrosse. You have great coverage of Lacrosse and I appreciate that.

    I have also learned a lot about the other UofL sports.

    I like Paulie's interviews, Jared's History of Louisville women's sports and the positive vibes you create here with your coverage.

    I'll second Curtis' comment. Thank you for what you do.

    I read but never comment. This is my first comment.

  3. I come here for womens basketball news. I appreciate your coverage on that. Naturally I would like to see more of that. I do realize that there are many other options available for you on campus for coverage.

    This is a good site. You are not pushing memberships for exclusive information. You stay positive, which is a rarity in today's journalistic coverage of things.

  4. Oh man, have read each and every day since I first found this site, coming here for basketball, but enjoy the coverage of ALL the sports.
    Mission accomplished very well indeed!
    Don't see where ANY changes are necessary, you all do what you do excellently!!!

  5. Paulie,

    You and the Cardinal Couple crew do a great job. No need for any changes. Stay positive, informative and supportive.

  6. I come to the site because of womens basketball but I enjoy it much more because of the education and enjoyment I get from reading about all the other womens teams that without Cardinal Couple I might never have known about.

    I must admit, I pretty much skip over all but the extraordinary situational one off articles regarding any of the mens activities. There are a bucket load of other sources for their information but a very small amount of places that I can read about what the various womens teams are doing.

  7. Thanks to all for your responses!


  8. You are doing great, keep it up, loved listening to the senior wbb interviews

  9. I come to this site for UofL Wbb, but you guys do a wonderful job covering all UofL womens sports great job well done.
    Go Card's!
