Pitino, Lolla, Kordes and Ferguson-Dayes headline Cardinal Caravan



-Coaches, Jurich headline Cardinal Caravan

-Soccer at EKU tonight

-Walz pleased with Canada trip

A large crowd of Cardinal fans enjoyed Thursday afternoon/evening at Captain's Quarters...hearing athletic director Tom Jurich and several other coaches speak.

WE like the coverage and photo Charlie Springer, over at UofL Card Game came up
with at the event and encourage you to check out his story of it at

No football coaches at the meet and greet...understandable since the season begins in two weeks
and preparation is at Defcon 5 to get ready for the home opener. Charlie Strong probably didn't
want to discuss the brewing issue with assistant coach Clint Hurtt and his days at Miami anyway.

Karen Ferguson-Dayes made the trip despite women's soccer opening tonight at EKU and
volleyball coach Anne Kordes, a never-ending first year ball of energy, relayed information on her squad...which is ranked #1 in the BIG EAST.

Reports back to us indicate that the food was plentiful and delicious, the beverages a welcome relief on a hot afternoon by the Ohio River and the Ladybirds dance team are as alluring as ever.

WE like the comment Rick Pitino made when on stage...indicating that he thought it might be possible that the women's basketball team might win a national championship before his players. No pressure, Coach Walz...just keep 'em healthy and motivated.


UofL women's soccer kicks it off tonight in Richmond, KY. to face Eastern Kentucky University. Let's hope the possible rains and thunderstorms hold off. Up to 6 inches of rain in St. Louis last night and Louisville usually gets what they do...straight down I-64.


The Courier-Journal's Jody Demling with some nice tidbits via conversation with Jeff Walz about the Canada trip in Friday's Courier Sports section. We've said it for awhile now...and Walz confirmed it when the topic turned to freshman Jude Schimmel. She may have been the least heralded of the three freshmen arriving on campus but the younger sister of Shoni definitely has game. Jeff Walz isn't a coach that pleases easily...enjoy the read at the link below:
