    Yup, lol. It was clear that UNC’s on a different level than UofL - more so than any other opponent the Cards have faced this year.... including UVA imo. Duke game will likely be the same, I’m afraid.

    Wasnít expecting the Cards to play that bad last night... oh my.... defense a major problem. I mean, they sort-of hung around here and there, but it was never in question. Big question can they win 1 or 2 of the last 4 games. Yikes! # beatduke

    One of my college kids was given this training during orientation. She mentioned the throw the books thing; they also said something like you have better chance if a group rushes the shooter versus ducking for cover (assuming you’re near line of fire) - not sure how one musters the courage for that.... which I guess is the purpose for the training.

    Not sure when the next win will be, but the Cards sure crushed it today! Next up North Carolina and Duke, with the Virginia rematch looming. Go Cards!

    A win for the Cards (finally)! They played a lot better defensively. Hopefully they keep up the momentum in Pitt, and can bring it against NC & Duke. Prob not the best day for GA Techís Josh Pastner.

    Mack is part of an established group of good coaches – Chris Mack, Sean Miller, Gregg Marshall, etc.; but I like my chances with a young up and comer. Padgett may be the next Brad Stevens!! But the way things are going with the UofL administration.... we won’t get Padgett or any of the aforementioned good coaches.... they’ll select an old geezer that will put us in the dump for years.... lol

    Are people really sure about this? Nothing against Chris Mack but just don’t see him being the next Rick Pitino. I would way rather remain with a young gun, and let him learn/develop. I know the debate will rage after the season, but I can’t seem to jump on this Chris Mack train....

    I’m not quite there that they miss the tourney, but it will continue to be Cardinal madness in February! Yes they should have had a convincing win vs. Syracuse, but otherwise it’s not like they’re getting blown out (except the UK game lol)/losing to bad teams. They just need some tweaks here and there. Overall Padgett is doing a fine job and the team has generally responded.

    Wow Wireman, I was honestly thinking the same thing! I couldn’t help but wonder last night if it was somehow psyching him out. I expect the same thing will happen vs Duke, but hopefully Greg Paulus can be a neutralizer. I’m still a believer in David Padgett and the team, despite these ups/downs.... C'mon Cards!

    LOL – yeap. What sucks is that they played pretty well the first half. Deuce’s “favorite” player just needs to go. All I want from this season is that double bye in Brooklyn, sigh ....

    LOL, right? I think NKU is a total gem.... Iím originally from Louisville and didnít grow up with the local second class citizen view of NKU (thankfully). Many of my daughterís high school friends seemed to poo-poo her choice when she decided on it (although several have now transferred to NKU in their sophomore and junior years). Anyway, NKU has been nothing short of a great experience... nice friends, excellent teachers, sorority, on...

    We were wondering the same.... it seems like several recent games he's sitting at the end. I assume there's some sort of injury they are not disclosing and getting him rest when they can.

    It was nice watching the Cards go hard til the clock ran out, and actually pull within 5 with about 2 minutes to go. Tony Bennett gave kudos to David Padgett after the game, for his preparation and focus. Totally agree, I was looking forward to how Padgett would coach against the top teams..., and walked away pleased. Hashtag KEEP DAVID PADGETT.

    Totally agree, and for the love of God, can UofL beat Virginia at least once?? I’d start a prediction thread about tomorrow night’s game, but I already know the result. (face palm) And sorry, to hijack this thread with UofL talk... am I falling into the pitfall PP2 is describing about some UK fans, lol??? Nah, we’re all in the same conference, so it’s relevant. As to last night’s Duke game.... they looked soooo good!

    That game was exhausting to watch - it felt like a 1pt. game that went on forever. Agree with missed opportunities. Oh well, learn and move on. Btw, Lonnie Walker is super athletic...

    I happened to walk past our break room at work, and caught a glimpse of the CNN headline “school shooting in Kentucky”. As a parent with kids at school in KY, your heart stops for a moment. Terrifying, prayers to all involved.
