    “WAVE Hails UofL Athletics!”

    The local sports club, as usual, will get a lot of TV coverage. The “academic” side will get nada. I guess that’s appropriate.

    Maybe the coaches shows will turn into the local version of the Dating Game.

    OMG!!!! Did you see the carnage?!? Did you see the blood running down Fourth Street Live?!?

    Novena is right, as usual. The sports-versity is a joke. Wonder what percentage of the football and men’s b’ball team can write a 500 word essay about anything (pick the subject)?

    TheTim: is hilarious. Quite a collection of coaches!!!!!!!

    Coach #1 likes taking long motorcycle rides in the country.

    Coast #2 likes fine Italian dining and hanging out with the college crowd.

    “Petrino & Pitino Run for the Title”

    . . . of The John Edwards of Athletics Award. The winner gets a bronze statue of himself at Papa John Stadium. The sleaze continues at Belknap.

    The Tim:
    Coach #2 seems to have a broad[er] association in that history indicates ‘rather than hanging out with the college crowd’ he would rather play Cards on a table with at least one middle-aged woman. Problem games’ over in 15 seconds – and then you get selected to the Hall of Fame!!!!!!!!!!!

    “Puns for Highlander”

    Perhaps the Hall of Fame voters liked the way Coach #2 dribbled and shot so quickly.
