How could Tom Jurich ever possibly outdo himself with all that he has already achieved during his tenure at the University of Louisville?
That’s not possible because Jurich knows no limitations. He’s the epitome of a visionary with mammoth dreams and makes the heretofore impossible become striking realities. Milestone after milestone for the program, the university and the community.
Another defining moment in UofL athletics on Friday, Jurich behind the podium announcing still another grandiose project, this time a 10,000 to 12,000-seat addition to Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium.
As Jurich indicated, the expansion will be first class in every respect, having drawn from the best ideas in the Dallas Cowboys and Seattle Seahawks’ stadiums. Add in field level luxury boxes, two new video boards, and two new massive Papa John’s signature columns, it’s going to be spectacular.
Jurich wants the expansion to be completed as quickly as possible, which means this is a top priority for him and for his staff. That includes his son, Senior Associate Athletic Director Mark Jurich who, no doubt, has identified his targets and is already blazing the fundraising trail.
The enthusiasm flowing the press conference was at such a high level that corporate sponsors may already lining up for this project. Don’t be surprised if the construction cranes are not vying for position this time next year.
This is golden era of University of Louisville sports. You’re not dreaming. This is actually happening.
The absolutely best part is that Tom and Mark Jurich will never be satisfied, always looking to build and improve University of Louisville sports. That’s just who they are and what they do.
