Bowl, baskets and radio...SATURDAY CARDINAL COUPLE

With today's assured I'm not recalling what I picked up at the yard sale down the street. Or providing an early Christmas list for next year. The Cards football squad tries to take a Tiger by the tail in the Citrus Bowl today at 11 a.m. in Orlando. The men's hoops contingent heads to Indy to shoot it out with the Hoosiers and we're back on the air with The Cardinal Couple Radio Hour.

Let's take a look at all three events: 


The Citrus Bowl tomorrow looks pretty much to me a question of whether Lamar Jackson can continue his Heisman-like efforts against an LSU squad which may have the best defensive Louisville has seen all season. He'll have help, of course, from his multiple and impressive receiver core and a couple of bona-fide running backs in Brandon Radcliff and Jeremy Smith. 

Can the Cards put aside the distractions of Wakey-Leaks, the shooting of James Hearns and Henry Famuerwa and suspension of coach Lonnie Galloway and just go out and play 60 minutes of un-troubled football? 

Louisville didn't end the season on the field on a bright note either with losses to Houston and UK. They've had a bit of time to implement a plan for this one, though....and Bobby usually does pretty good when you give him that luxury. Lamar finds a way to get it done and the Cards prevail today...we'll say 35-24.

This one goes at 11 a.m. on ABC.  


The Cardinal fan base is divided this weekend...with many headed to Camping World Stadium to tailgate and (I've heard maybe as many as 10,000) fans taking I-65 N to Indy for hoops. The Bankers Life Fieldhouse hosts the Cards and Indiana for a 12:38 p.m. (I love the preciseness here..) on CBS. What if it starts at 12:39? Does someone get fired? 

Both squads are coming off disappointing losses. The #11 Cards fell to Virginia a couple of nights ago 61-53 after knocking off #2 UK last week. #16 IU stumbled in their conference opener against Nebraska 87-83 in Bloomington. 

Decisions, decisions...for the fans staying home. Do you head somewhere that has a lot of TV's (remember you're competing against UK's football bowl game also in the bars) or just split-screen it at home?  

I don't know what it is about going to games in Indy...but I haven't seen a lot of Louisville wins when I I'm staying home and doing radio. You're welcome, Rick. I'll say Cards 77 - Hoosiers 74. 

We're gonna ask you find a way to include THE CARDINAL COUPLE RADIO HOUR in this sports smorgasbord as's the details: 


(Sorry, Aerosmith...for the song title usage here...but I really do like the song)


"I KNOW it's a grill...why isn't there anything on it?" 
THE CARDINAL COUPLE RADIO HOUR returns to the airwaves after taking last week off. Case, Worldwide and I will fill you in on men and women's hoops, football and whatever comes across our minds. We'll probably watching football in the studio, so ignore any dead air or profanity that might occur. It's pretty common for us, actually. I'll also ask the guys to give me a New Year's Resolution. I'll have one, too. 

We have great audio from Jeff Walz, Asia Durr, Myisha Hines-Allen, Mariya Moore and Quentin Hillsman for you and Case will try and land a single-engine Cessna on Frankfort Avenue sometime during the broadcast. 

(OK, he really isn't going to try that but it might be fun and we'll keep it under advisement.) If you have any suggestions on things we can have Case attempt...tweet us @Cardcoupleradio

Hello, radio! Glad to be back. We tee off at 11 a.m. On WCHQ 100.9 FM locally and the Internet Link below:

Hiya, buddy! Good morning! 


  1. Too much going on at one time. My plan is to listen to you on radio, watch football with the volume turned down and record basketball for future enjoyment. Then take a nap. Yeah, I think that will do.

  2. Good move I recorded both games
