I will say this. If the accusations about Coach Young are true, then it is in the best interest of the University to part ways with her despite her success with the program.
Also, what is up with the University paying her legal counsel? Craig Dilfer, who is representing Young, is getting paid by UofL. Sports Information Director Kenny Klein relayed the message that Dilfer will continue to be paid by UofL because he represents the University on the case and not Young personally. UofL expects that Young will cooperate with the legal matter.
Let's recap. Young is relieved of duty. Young gets legal counsel. UofL is paying the legal counsel because they say he represents them and not just her. I'm no lawyer, but doesn't this seem just a wee bit strange? As Paulie mentioned on his Wednesday morning SPORTS SHORTS segment on WCHQ 100.9 FM -- where's Matlock? Perry Mason? William Shatner? My Cousin Vinny?
I agree with Paulie. I'd probably want my own legal counsel that wasn't being paid the plaintiff.
We're far from the end-point resolution in the Young matter.
In the meantime, what's left of the Lacrosse roster waits for a new leader and direction.
With women's basketball just two days away, we see more news every day about Jeff's Walz's squad. The latest includes Asia Durr and her incredible guard skills. She has been named to the 2018 Ann Meyers Drysdale Award Watch List. The annual honor in its inaugural year recognizes the top shooting guard in women's college basketball.
There isn't a better player in WBB college hoops right now to win the award. Durr is coming off a record-breaking season as a sophomore and is in a perfect position to continue breaking records. She's already in the 1,000 point club and owns the Cardinal women's record for 119 three-pointers in one season. She's also on a streak of 39 straight games with a made "THREEEE!" and we hope she continues the school record this season. Expect great things this year out of Asia, including -- hopefully -- a few national awards. This team has a goal of reaching The Final Four in Columbus and getting UofL their first National Championship in women's basketball. Durr will be essential in helping them acheive this goal. Night, night!
My first time contributing to Cardinal Couple was when I appeared on THE CARDINAL COUPLE RADIO HOUR as a guest in the spring of 2016. I started joining them full-time earlier this year on radio with the "A-Team" on Saturdays when I'm not busy turning 20's into 5's and 10's at the bank. When Paulie asked if I would be interested in doing a weekly article, I gratefully accepted the request.
Beside my bold predictions and weekly write ups for the site, I've been seen at numerous women's athletic events with a camera. Sometimes I catch a good play. Sometimes I catch a funny face from a player. Sometimes I forget to take the lens cap off and end up with a blank photo.

I'm glad to be a part of it all but it is YOU that is Cardinal Couple and something we never forget. Please consider helping us out with a donation.
The winner of the first Panera Card drawing is Blue Lou. The drawing was done by putting the 10 names in a cup and having Paulie's friendly next door neighbor pull one out. Blue Lou IS NOT Paulie's next door neighbor.
Paulie sends this brief bio on him:
Lou's been a life-long Cardinal fan that moved from New Albany to Georgetown, KY several years ago for work. He deals with UK fans constantly, which makes him blue and despondent. Lou likes to tailgate for Cards and Bengals football, go to Keeneland and enjoys camping with his girlfriend.
Congrats, Lou! We will start another contest for another $20 Panera Card. Look for the mystery picture and correctly identify it in the comments section. Paulie says there will be another entry chance in Thursday's column and, as he says, "It don't cost ya nuthin". The first correct response we receive gets an entry in the drawing!
