Ok fine. I’ll say one nice thing about Louisville.

I will probably have a change of heart moments after clicking publish on this, but at least for now, I have one nice thing to say about Louisville’s basketball program. Take a screenshot because it will never happen again.

Ugh, here it is:

The new retro court is kind of cool. Not all the way cool, but for a program that sucks at everything, I will say this is cool on Louisville’s scale of cool.

Ok that’s enough.

Louisville sucks.

      I guess I kinda see what they were going for… but man it’s terrible. I thought this was a joke.

    A little cartoonish for my taste; reminds me of the court at Kansa$$.

    Not cool. Kinda stupid for a Power 5 conference.

    wonder why they have not named anything in the stadium or on the court after rick pitino or jurich?

      I think they’re kinda sore about losing the ’13 banner. Some people are picky that way, lol.

    Also, looks like the Card is wearing a football jersey, and football pants…odd.

      I think the court is pretty cool, but you’re right, he’s wearing an old school football uni. Where’s his leather helmet?

    Kinda like their metallic red football helmets. Really like them but hate to admit it

      I don’t like them because they don’t match the red in their jerseys, our helmets are much cooler.

      That metallic red looks like the color of a lower rider in Mexico City, or south central LA.

    And where did they find a cardinal with teeth? WTF?? That, combined with the sweater and pants made of feathers makes it not cool at all. That bird needs to stick ta eating black oil sunflower seeds.

    I’ll say something nice too. Sometimes they are the 2nd best basketball team in Kentucky.

    I’m going to say something nice too. When I was a young boy, I always wanted a little brother, I didn’t realize I had always had one and the good news is I always will.

    That is without doubt the ugliest basketball court in the world.

    Mid major looking court

    No accounting for taste and too each their own I guess. Looks like something on a HS court. Probably gonna be real distracting when watching on TV. Kind of like watching an Oregon game. Ugly and distracting to the game.

    It’s kinda lame, but I think UK should do retro every now and again. Those vintage Wildcats logos are so cool.

    Also, they have three Fleur de lis by the “Louisville” in the end zones. Is that a dig at the NCAA by saying they have three Championships?! Because…they do NOT!

    Ngl I like the style too. Too bad it’s UL

    Ugly for UL, but imagine Rupp rocking the old Wildcat logo on the court??? I’d be into that

    Too bad pitino didn’t win a national championship at UL, they might have put his signature on the floor as well.

    So, they’ll be tipping off from right in the cardinal’s crotch ?

    Yup, pretty awesome. Love the retro cardinal. So much better than our current Wildcat, wish we could do something with our old-school logo.

      I’m all for going back to the old school Wildcat as well.

    It’s hideous. The cardinal is waaaayyyyyyy too big. It takes up the whole court. It’s disproportionate.

    Why are u always cutting down Louisville. Louisville is a Ky school. I pull for any Ky school playing an out of state school. Of course I pull for UK when they play UL and remember when someone is down you don’t stomp them. You try to lift them up.

      You clearly don’t live in Louisville and have to deal with their obnoxious a-hole fans on a regular basis, like I do.

    Did Louisville do it? Not cool.

    Really cool not only do birds have teeth, they wear shoes have hands and dunk basketballs. Its ul it sucks.

    It is ironic that Drew says this. I have a half brother that is as die hard UL as I am UK. When I used to play golf and we would play together, one side of the cart was blue and one side red. He has an ugly Cardinal bird tatoo. Sometimes he even texts the bird emoji to me when we argue. He started a fight with me about Rupp being racist on the night of the 2012 NCAA Championship game. However, he is still blood and I sent him a text today with the pic of the court ans said the following:

    “If I were a fan of a team that had a mascot with teeth that aren’t possible, I would like this because it brings some 80s championship feel to the mix. It’s another example of sticking it to Coach P”

    That is as nice as I can be!

    UK should do a huge penis tongue wildcat at mid court in Rupp.

      Dang, that really made me laugh out loud. My wife just looked at me and I didn’t even comment- just laughed. Satch, were both sick.. and we know it too.

    The bird looks like he is wearing a football jersey to play basketball. Not cool. Ugly weird is more like it. Knew you liked U6 more than I do.

    Does that Jersey mean their BBall team is better at football than their FBall team or vice versa?
