Louisville not allowing coaches or players to speak to Kentucky media this week

It’s rivalry week, which means things are bound to get a little bit chippy and a little bit strange between Kentucky and Louisville leading up to Saturday’s game. The first oddity of the week comes to us in the form of a memo tucked inside UK and Louisville’s media information sent out yesterday. As first noticed by the Herald-Leader’s Jen Smith, in UofL’s media advisory, there’s a special note that says UofL players and coaches “are not available to the Kentucky media during the week.” Just so you know, that’s not normal. While schools sometimes put media limitations on certain players or coaches, singling out a media contingent like that is…odd.

If we’re to assume “Kentucky media” means media members that normally cover the University of Kentucky football team, does that mean UK media will be banned from Louisville’s press conferences and practice reports this week? Or, did they mean to just freeze us out and left off “Sports Radio” by accident?

Jurich gonna Jurich.

UPDATE: According to some Louisville media, not allowing coaches and players to speak to opposing media is standard policy. But it is weird.

    Jurich should be considered for Trump’s press secretary, they have the same media policies – “no dissenters!”

      Trump isn’t the one who protests on the streets against other’s right to vote, or the one bans anyone from speaking on campus who is not a progressive, or even the one who threatens to murder electors who carry out their sworn duty.

      Only “progressives”, a movement which was literally created as the American version of Italian fascism (if you read history), tries to stop dissent. They are being true to their narrow-minded roots, I’ll give them that much !

      Putin and Kim Jong-un are joyous that Trump won the election – now they have another petulant toddler to keep them company. Play dates for all!

    I think it should mean any media located in the entire state. I mean, it does say Kentucky media.

    Well their world was destroyed when they lost thursday night, you know the one that they win the NTL CHMP , the same one they have had a cpl times and it never works out for them unless they get help from Hookers.

    Does anyone read into this a little more and think UL might have done this because, UL believes UK is going to pull out the win? This is a tactic to be used when you have all the pressure to win and doubt a win is certain. Stoops should let Calpari do the press conference and radio show tonight for subliminal shots to be taken towards those dirty cardinals. Let the mind game begin leading up tot his game!

    What a typical little brother move move. Whatever. Stay classy folks, even though little brother provides such a TRE, large bull’s eyes for everyone.
    I hope we win, but if we don’t, we still go to a bowl. That is what really matters.
    Think Charley Strong will be there, because he has nothing to do?

      Just read Charlie Strong said his future will not be decided until after the TCU game. He will be busy.

    All Kentucky sports reporters should refuse to cover Louisville before the game. Solidarity.

    Apparently this was a UL policy all year long per the CJ beat writer.

    They prob. just want to keep their players from mouthing off and giving the opposition bulletin board material….

    They’ve finally come to terms with the fact that their players are thugs and they know it’s a possibility their mouths will get them in trouble.

    Also, uofl doesn’t want to spend the money on a translator for Lamar Jackson’s dumbass.
