Jeff Walz Interview -- Calm Down -- FRIDAY CARDINAL COUPLE


I was pleased to be able to catch up with University of Louisville women's basketball head coach Jeff Walz yesterday for a phone chat.

The 15 minute discussion covered a variety of subjects, including the return of student-athletes to campus beginning June 1st., the Cardinals in the WNBA and a message to Cardinal fans from Coach Walz.

Last night, in downtown Louisville, a planned peaceful demonstration over the death of Metro EMT Breonna Taylor turned ugly. Seven people were shot, buildings were defaced, property destroyed and police arrived in riot gear to break up the proceedings.

This is not how we roll, Louisvillians. 

I will defend anyone's right to assemble and peacefully protest. It's in our constitution. When it turns violent, though...the lives of the innocent become endangered. That's not OK.  

With the weekend and nice weather approaching, we'll step outside of our normal role here of reporting on the joy and excitement of Louisville women's athletics today and make a plea. 

Just calm down.

There is no need to resort to violence in our city. Words, ideas, thoughts and feelings being expressed are one thing. These things can be done peacefully. Be better than this, here in our beloved city. The parents of the late Breonna Taylor are asking that everyone remain peaceful as we work toward truth and justice.

Please heed the words of parents who have lost their child. 

Black or white, young or old, we are all in this together. Spread love and understanding, not hate and violence. 



  1. It's great to hear about all the returnees coming in June 1st. Let's hope they stay safe, get some good gym time in and receive excellent strength and conditioning. Norika, what a journey!

    I agree Paulie. Everyone in Louisville just needs to chill. Violence is never the answer.

  2. I couldn't agree more Paulie. Listen to Marvin Gaye's song What's Going On. There's no need to escalate. Listen to Breonna's parents. Protests are fine. Riots are not.

    Day 3 of the Curtis quarantine. I still feel fine. And, I got a good night's sleep. Gonna watch Seinfeld all day. Serenity now!

  3. This insanity must stop.
