Spring football week after next

Not that anyone has entirely given up on the basketball season.

If one needs a transition period, or is simply ready for other distractions, there are some good ones coming in March for University of Louisville fans, like:

  • Spring football practice arrives week after next, March 21st, with the first two or three practices open to the public. Need we say more?
  • The U of L baseball team, off to an 8-3 start, which will be hosting Indiana University (3-5) Tuesday at Jim Patterson Stadium, the first pitch at 3 p.m. The Louisville bats have been much more lively with five starters hitting 310 or better — Cole Sturgeon at .364, Jeff Gardner at .342, Adam Engel and Stewart Ijames at .333, and Nick Ratajzcak at .310. You should also know that Ijames has four home runs and three doubles already.
  • The women’s softball team is undefeated after the first 14 games. Unfortuantely one will have to wait a week to see them again, hoping they don’t cool off. Sandy Pearsall’s team will host Michigan, St. Louis and Illinois State in the Red and Black Classic, a three-day tournament starting Saturday.

Maybe clear out a few cob webs.

    Is this what “March Madness” means — 75 degrees one day, 3+ inches of snow two days later? Oh wait, this is the Ohio Valley. Go Cards!

    Thank goodness for spring football. It may take my mind off basketball.

    Will CRP still have press conferences to give us the daily update on his injury (?) reports?
