Monday Morning Memos

To Coach Rick Pitino: Clean up the language, and quickly. It’s really beneath you to resort to such language anyway. You lose in terms of respect, and, from now on, it could also affect the won-loss column.

To Billy Reed: Think positive for a change. You never seem to have anything good to say about the new U of L basketball arena, Churchill Downs, local elected officials or any of your former employers. Starting to sound a little bitter.

To fans who want Kragthorpe fired
: Give it a rest for at least a couple of games. U of L was in a position to win a game in which the so-called experts said it wouldn’t compete. You’re beginning to grate on the nerves.

To Tom Jurich about football: Keep on evaluating. Course corrections are never easy. You know football, and your recommendations carry a lot of weight.

To Jeff Brohm: Thanks for returning. It’s obvious you want what’s best for U of L. Thanks, too, to dad Oscar, brother Greg and, of course, Brian. You’ve invested too much to let it go.

    Well said.

    As a native Louisvillian and a U of L graduate now living in the heart of ACC country (Winston-Salem, NC), it’s refreshing to read positive stories and happenings with U of L. (That’s also a hint to Billy Reed!)

    It can grow tiring very quickly to hear how great the ACC is…how the Duke Blue Devils and North Carolina are…and how many NBA players these schools have.

    So keep up the great blog!!!! And let’s get the positive momentum going for the CARDS!!!

    Go CARDS!
