The best thing about Freedom Hall for University of Louisville basketball fans is that the venerable landmark is going nowhere after the Syracuse game. All the parting remarks should not be considered eulogies, and the ceremony is not a funeral. Freedom Hall will serve as concrete reminder of what Louisville basketball has meant and will continue to mean to this community — a monument to what has been accomplished and the promise of things to come.

    Suggestion to Jurich: Don’t throw away your keys to FH. As someone else has already suggested, one game a year in FH, for old time’s sake, might be nice. That way, those who cannot get into the new arena for a game won’t be totally shut out. How about making it a double-header, men’s and women’s games, 2 for 1?

    GO CARDS!!!
