Monday Outlook Not Good For Louisville Football

Maybe the pessimism stems from today being a Monday but the week begins with a sense of foreboding: The weekend could be another embarrassing one for University of Louisville football. mondays

Based on the last two seasons and a lackluster start to this one, the worst seems almost inevitable as U of L goes against Kentucky in Lexington Saturday.

The fact that underdogs have fared well is one thread of hope, with the favored team winning only eight times in 15 tries in the modern era.

Unfortunately, they haven’t kept records on how teams declared “dead meat” by many of their own fans have fared.

Things always look better on Tuesday.

    Sounds like bulletin board material to me, Chaz. Good stuff.

    Given my ever-optimistic nature (hmmm..)…I’ll go out on a limb — Cards win on Saturday. We gotta believe! Go Cards.
