stextbox id=”warning”]Finally, the University of Louisville has landed a recruit from Central High School. In football, no less. For years, talented Central athletes have turned a blind eye to U of L, consistently going elsewhere.
Stephan Robinson is breaking the ground. The gifted 5-foot-9, 165-pound wide receiver caught 35 passes for 764 yards and 11 touchdowns during his senior year.
Robinson may even have some company from Central in linebacker Tim Patterson, who finished the season with 91 tackles, including 12 tackles for losses, four sacks and two interceptions. Coach Ty Scroggins, a former Louisville player, has indicated that Robinson and Patterson want to attend the same school.
Former Central basketball coach Robert Graves will be turning over in his grave.

Fan Man — Gotta give a shout out to Joe Ghbard, the fan who took it upon himself to get the crowd fired up in sections 234 and 235 during the second half.
Ghbard was standing on railings, running up and down the aisle, exhorting fans to get off their rear ends. Lecturing at times, fending shouts to sit down, somehow avoiding confrontations, getting his fellow fans involved. “Come on now,” he kept shouting. “We’ve got to defend our end of the field.”
Those sections, located below the luxury suites, have rarely seen the like. Come back anytime, Joe.

The Scuffle — At least no pre-season injuries yet. Terrence Jennings and Jerry Smith found themselves in the wrong place at the right time, getting arrested, spending overnight in jail after a misunderstanding in a Jeffersonville night spot. Charged with resisting arrest, they will soon be confronted by Rick Pitino, who is somewhat familiar with bad late night decisions.[/stextbox]
