University of Louisville fans are immensely proud of greatly improved athletic facilities, everything fans have dreamed about for decades — a brand new 22,000-seat basketball arena and the 56,000-seat football stadium expansion.

Should be plenty of celebrating to go around.

Instead, an ominous cloud hovers overhead, with the specter of Big Ten expansion. If the worst occurs, the expansion would decimate Big East Conference football and diminish the quality of basketball while wiping out the hard-earned gains in other sports.

While U of L fans have reasons to be concerned, they can take comfort in knowing that Tom Jurich is focused on the issues. These are the kind of challenges upon which Jurich thrives. He’s attending BCS meetings this week in Arizona you know, representing the conference. And he’s not twiddling his thumbs.

One thought on “Jurich Not Resting On Laurels”
  1. You’re so right, Charlie. When the whole scene is played out, I believe that Mr. Jurich will have U of L in even better shape than it is now.
