Did you know that the University of Louisville still has a basketball team? Neither did I. I thought they had already thrown in the do-rag. But apparently the program is still hanging on by a line beard hair and fighting the good fight from that new downtown food court. Yesterday, Louisville announced three additions to the coaching staff, including former player David Padgett. Padgett has been brought on as assistant strength coach for the Cards after finishing up a typical Louisville pro career for UB LaPalma in the Canary Islands. He returns to his alma mater to begin a new career in selling Kentucky Derby tickets as a college basketball coach.
If the players can buy into the former captain’s leadership and coaching, I expect the entire team to sustain season ending knee injuries by December.
