Woah, the University of Louisville said no to Greg Fischer!
The University of Louisville Athletics Department has turned down Mayor Greg Fischer’s proposal for a community rally in support of the Cardinals in their Final Four basketball contest with Kentucky, Fischer spokesman Chris Poynter confirmed Tuesday.
Fischer proposed the rally on the plaza in front of the KFC Yum! Center some evening this week, or in advance of the Saturday game in New Orleans, Poynter said.
“The mayor wanted it. He thought it would be good for the city, but U of L put the ax on it. There will be no rally,” Poynter said.
Poynter said U of L athletics officials said they wanted the team to stay focused on the game and they also feared that band members and cheerleaders might miss too much class time
Do you think Greg is pouting? Someone told him no!
FYI – we hear Poynter called his former colleagues at the C-J, like he does every day, to tell them about it. Maybe didn’t work out as well as planned.
