I would love to hear your prediction for the kitty cats this season? You are probably more qualified to talk about that team instead of "your" beloved Cards

Ok...let me restate that...

We will be mediocre at guard except for Rozier.......

And be dominated at the 5 by elite teams....

I just don't see this being a team that can reach the final 4........but I've been wrong on occasion :)

Wow TOV you are a genius.  If you said this every single year you would be right over 90% of the time.  Takes a genius to make prediction that we may not make the final four.  Lol.  Talk about saying something to draw people into fighting with you.  Lol.  You could be the obvious variable.

Takes a lot of guts to say that a back court projected to be drafted to the pros, two very talented back ups that are starter caliber players, a four year starter at the 3 backed up by a savvy, quick freshman, an all American at the 4 with two athletic backups, a redshirt starter at the 5 that came on at the end of the year backed up by an elite defender and two seven plus footers...

I'll take our chances.

There's nothing to get all worked up about... Except The Cards.  Because let's face it, they're The Cards.

Gill is the player I expect to break out this year.  He is a good athlete and a was a great scorer in highschool.  I expect him to take a huge step up this year.  We will be good a guard and ok at the 5.  Mango will be inproved and Onuaku is a improvement over SVT by the time the end of the year rolls around.

I wouldn't worry too much about our resident naysayer's prediction.  According to him we have two players that don't suck and the rest will struggle.  It is pretty obvious that this is a prediction based on no facts and at the end of the season it will be equally obvious how inaccurate the prediction was.  Could we lose in the Sweet 16?  Of course we could.  Just ask every team except for 8 every year how it can happen, but that does not make the Sweet 16 our ceiling.  I believe it will be a very exciting season with close to 30 wins again.  See how easy it is to be an optimistic "fan", whose prediction is based on just as many "facts", instead of being a pessimistic "fan".

Is it really far fetched to think we will struggle at the 2....where we have a 5'10" limited defensive player and a kid that couldn't get on the court last year because his defense was so bad?

Or that we may struggle at the 5 with a very limited sophomore project and a true freshman that has a long. Long way to go?

We will be a good team because of Rozier, Harrel and Fat Wayne.........but ....IMHO.......we don't have a complete, championship contender......

Nobody has a complete, perfect roster. I think our size and depth in the post might end up being one of our strengths. And if Chris Jones' defense is one of our weaknesses, I like our chances

Re: Player Updates 


I thought Jones was an even better defender than Peyton Siva, to be honest.  He played perfect position defense and maintained enough space to avoid the stupid reach-ins.  He didn't gamble and get as many steals, but he was very disruptive to the opposing point guards.

CatFansince73: Louisville could sign three quarterbacks like Teddy Bridgewater and still lose to UK by two or three touchdowns next year.

I like Jones a lot, and I don't think his defense was too bad.  But better than Siva?   eek
