Today could finally be the day, the last day of James Ramsey’s University of Louisville Presidency. When Governor Matt Bevin dismissed UofL’s Board of Trustees, many believed Ramsey’s resignation was next to come. Not so fast my friends.
As of today, Ramsey is still UofL’s President. There have been at least two separate occasions where I have written posts on this site following Board of Trustees meetings where Ramsey apparently resigned, but somehow he’s still there. It has been a confusing ordeal.
At today’s emergency meeting, Ramsey’s resignation is the primary topic. One of three things could will not happen:
1. Ramsey’s resignation is accepted by the Board, leaving a vacant seat to be filled in the future.
2. Ramsey resigns, but retains his job temporarily while the Board searches for UofL’s next President.
3. Ramsey’s resignation is not accepted by the Board, he keeps his job and starts building the UofL Death Star.
4. I didn’t think there was going to be a fourth option, but you never know with this saga.
The meeting begins today at 9:30.
SCRATCH EVERYTHING. An hour before it was supposed to start, the meeting was canceled, according to Joe Sonka. The timing is strange. The reasons and implications are unknown. Darth Ramsey’s fate remains unknown for another day.
Other stuff that’s happening…
Jedrick Wills Visited UK Yesterday
Justin Rowland reported the Lafayette offensive tackle stopped by campus yesterday. Wills was bummed he couldn’t read about it.
Olympic Facilities Won’t Be Ready
The Australian Olympic delegation was supposed to move into the Olympic Village yesterday, but the place wasn’t ready. In fact, it’s been reported that only 12 of the 31 buildings that are supposed to house the athletes have passed inspection. They have until next Friday, August 5, to get their ish together, but let’s be honest, that’s probably not going to happen.
Tom Jackson Out at ESPN?
After 28 years with the Worldwide Leader, Tom Jackson is debating on whether or not he should continue his career as an NFL analyst, The NY Daily News reports. The UofL grad spent most of his career being the intelligent person next to Chris Berman. Most recently he’s been the guy that doesn’t yell on the worst NFL pregame show in America, NFL Sunday Countdown.
That show has hopes. This season Mike Ditka will no longer be staring off aimlessly on the set. Chris Berman will depart after this year too. Hopefully TJ sticks around for a swansong with his long-time partner before the worst NFL pregame show in America gets the facelift it desperately needs.
Something Happened on The Bachelorette
I hope this guy is speaking in simile.
July Sports News is Slow
Yesterday was brutal and it’s only going to get worse before it gets better. Hopefully John Calipari grabs a microphone somewhere to shake things up. In the meantime…

KSR is at the DNC in Philly
No word on if the California delegation will be there to boo Ryan. Stay tuned to find out.
