Off And Running

The basketball Cards did what was expected in dispatching Hartford 104-69 in the University of Louisville’s season opener. Some impressions:

— Terrence Williams looks like Darrell Griffith-plus, with even more athleticism than we remembered. A reverse double-clutch dunk, 14 points, 13 assists and 12 rebounds. He will be legendary simply for his dunks but his other contributions are so much more valuable.

— Edgar Sosa will start again, and soon. For this team to come close to its potential, Edgar must realize his talents extend far beyond shooting; that’s when basketball will become fun again.

— Will need more than 16 minutes from Derrick Caracter as the schedule toughens. Still seems foul-prone. Officials expect him to foul, too, so they tend to anticipate.

— Can’t wait to see David Padgett against a good post man, brings out the best in him.

Still not quite into basketball, football grieving continues.

    On the T-Will vs. Griff comparisons

    Don’t get TOO carried away now

    My memory’s pretty damn clear on Griff’s athleticism…

    We haven’t had anyone in so long REALLY attack the basket for dunks since the Doctors of old…that we forget

    T is just the heir apparent that’s all

    He’s got to crank another ft on his vertical to match Griff
