A Cardinal Couple Reader Quiz -- TUESDAY CARDINAL COUPLE


On The Cardinal Couple Radio Hour each week, during the summer months, I present a quiz to the group that is in the studio with me. it's a fun way to learn a little bit about the women's sports on the UofL campus and also sparks a little bit of rivalry and competition between the "A-Team" members. 

Our listeners and viewers on Facebook Live do pretty well on it also. Unless they are lying to us or "googling" the answers. 

I know, I's summer and you've put down the books and are enjoying a break from academia -- if you're a student -- for awhile, but it never hurts to stay sharp and keep the gray matter active. So, I'm offering a quiz for the readers today. We'll have ten questions, you get 10 points for each correct answer and there is a bonus at the end that can either get you 20 points or lose you 20 points.

You have the option of "passing" on the bonus, but no one ever does, it seems. 

Answers are at the end of today's article. Good luck and here we go:

100-120.   You're a whiz quiz kid !! You get the Paulie Award for Quiz Excellence and we'll send you a picture of the one-eared, toothpick-holding bear !!

80-90.  Not a bad score. You know your UofL history and landmarks. We'll list your name on Case Hoskins Wall of Fame and send Jared out to take your picture. 

50-70. We'll pass you, but study hall and tutoring is in order for you. Report to the Cardinal Couple Chimps Counselling Services...located underneath the House of Cards. 

20-40. I know. You don't wanna talk about it. Go do some yard work. 

0-10.  Hello, UK fan. Thanks for stopping by! 

Have a terrific Tuesday! Let us know how you did in the comments section ! 



  1. Passed on the bonus, btw.

  2. the bonus right. I'm going to claim that I am too young (cough, cough) to know what was NOT in Crawford Gym.

  3. Well, I was sitting at 9 for 9 but never knew Crawford Gym had racquetball. Didn't get greedy, didn't take the bonus and got a 90. Come take my picture...Jared!!

  4. Quite the coincidence that you put my name in the 80-90 category. I went 10/10 on the regular coursework but bombed on my extra credit.

    1. Vulcan mind meld with you...which, quite frankly, scared the he!! out of me once I got in there, Case.


  5. No lodging or Jacuzzi, David. There are a couple of cabooses on the premises, though. Bring a sleeping bag. You can hoof it to Beef's or Kroger in about ten minutes (given your age) but I'd recommend breakfast or lunch at Wagner's Pharmacy...about another two minutes away, in the same direction.


  6. 80 because I missed the bonus. I'll take it.
