Rick Pitino is being true to his word when he talks about team quickness, expecting to get the ball across center court in less than four seconds. A couple of passes and itâ€™s there. He told the scrimmage crowd that players who canâ€™t keep pace may just have to transfer. In a kidding way, but you knew he meant it.
Youâ€™ve heard the expression thereâ€™s not a bad seat in Freedom Hall? Well, the well-healed fans on the lower level may never admit it, but some of them are getting jibed. Specifically, if you are sitting in the second or third row on either side of the court, you are constantly straining to see around the person in front of you. Not much fun, especially when they are wearing baseball caps like during last nightâ€™s scrimmage. Iâ€™ll take the upper level any day over that.
Card Game is still trying to figure out whether Sonja was at the UofL-South Florida football game and, if she was, whether she was watching Breeder’s Cup races on a Dick Tracy wristwatch.
