Rowing Adds Assistant Coach -- THURSDAY CARDINAL COUPLE

 Rowing Adds Assistant Coach

Louisville Rowing added Callie McGowan to the coaching staff.  McGowan is plenty familiar with the program and city, having been on the team as a student-athlete and just graduated in the spring of 2018.

After graduating with a bachelors degree from Louisville, McGowan went to become a graduate assistant the last two years.  She recently completed her masters in athletic leadership.

"As a former rower, I am honored to be able to come back and continue to push this team to new levels both in our conference and on the national stage," said McGowan.  "I believe Derek and the other coaches have a clear vision for this team.  I am very thankful for this incredible opportunity and am looking forward to getting this season started."

The rowing season often begins with the Red and Black Regatta as a scrimmage.  They typically have a few events in October and November before breaking for winter time.

The back half of the season picks up in March and runs through May, when the ACC Championships take place.

Unlike most sports, rowing is a socially distanced sport between opponents and is contact-less.  Assuming all teams are following the proper procedures and protocol then a rowing season should be one of the safest sports to have, along with cross country, track and field, and tennis. It would be difficult to separate the rowers in one boat, obviously, but that can't be changed. 

Sadly, Louisville doesn't host home events due to the currents in the Ohio River, but we can still cover away events!

Burger Week

A while back, we brought back the Burger of the Week.  Well, it's National Burger Week.  There's plenty of good places to go to.

Here's places I've been to or plan to go to this week:


-Dundee Tavern

-Dizzy Whiz

-Mussel and Burger Bar

-Ollie's Trolley

-Kern's Korner

Where are some of your favorite places to get a burger?

Happy Thursday and Go Cards!



  1. I'm still all about Tucker's over here in New Albany on State Street for best burger. I try to stop by and get one (carryout) before work at least once a week. Ordering in advance has it ready for me when I pull up. Tuck's Burger is their best, IMHO. Try it.

  2. The Big Ten, Pac-12, Mountain West and MAC (plus three individual programs) -- 53 total schools at this time -- hope to give it a go in the spring. The other 77 FBS schools are either planning on playing in the fall or leaning that way.

    Tell me how you determine a national champion in anything this way?

    Burgers? I stopped eating red meat years ago. Why clog your arteries?
