With all the bad news going on lately -- the "virus", presidential candidates screaming at each other, stores running out of hand sanitizer and toilet paper and such, I thought a brief respite from the "new world blues" might be in order this Monday. 

On the Cardinal Couple Radio Hour show, we used to do a "quiz" during the slow months of UofL women's sports. So, I'm going to adjust it for the website. I'll be using pictures of Cardinal student-athletes and related personnel, give you options on who it is and you tabulate the results. 

We don't have the luxury of the studio contestants displaying their answers, no bell or buzzer to indicate whether your answer at home is right or wrong or the on-air chatter between me (the quiz master) and the participants...but, let's give it a try. You're welcome to post your totals in the comments section.

10 points for each correct answer. No bonus option today. The one-eared, toothpick holding bear will be theoretically offered (fictitiously) as a trophy to the best score I see posted in the comments. 

Correct answers at the end of the quiz.  Clear the runway and faster your seat we go!

Tell us how you did in the comments section ! 

Have a meaningful Monday.



  1. I scored 70. 3,8 and 9 tripped me up. Going for some sleep.

    Curtis "unwrap it and get it out on the floor" Franklin

  2. Got 6 of 10 right. Not bad for guessing on 7. Re: #9, Cam is doing a nice job at Florida. They would have qualified for NIT. Cam did a great job getting that awesome freshman who should have been freshman of year in SEC. Boston probably got it. Great pic of you and Sonya playing in the rain Paulie.

    1. Thanks Wade. I've caught a lot of flack for wearing a blue rain gear item, but, I found 24 of these in a box at an yard sale and purchased them for the princely sum of $5.


  3. I report 70%.

    3, 8 and 9 got me.

    Thanks for doing this Paulie. People need diversions right now from the constant barrage of CoronaVirus stuff on the TV, on the radio, on the Internet -- everywhere.

    We all know the basics. Follow the five that you have listed at the top of the page, you'll be OK.

    Daggone, you all are a tall bunch at Cardinal Couple!

    Nick O.

  4. Missed three. On all three I knew the name but didn't know a face to go with it.

  5. 60% and don't follow any sports on grass or turf

  6. 9 out of 10!!!
    And don't know how I missed Brooklyn Rivers!
