Cards No. 9 in AP, and ESPN's take

The Associated Press poll is out, and the University of Louisville men’s basketball team made an even bigger jump than it did in the coach’s poll. The Cards are No. 9 in the media poll, back into the top ten after beating three ranked teams in a week.

I’d say the Cards probably are one of the ten best teams in the country now — but to stay in the top 10 in the next poll, they’re going to have to earn it. Rutgers is a classic trap game — Earl Clark and Edgar Sosa heading back home, a big win over No. 1 Pitt just behind them and a big game at Syracuse ahead.

In fact, that Syracuse game is looking like one of the games of the year in the Big East.

It should be fun. In the meantime, take a look at what ESPN’s College GameDay crew had to say after U of L’s victory over Pitt.

I suppose I should offer a prize to anyone who can explain what the heck Digger Phelps is trying to say in this clip . . .

  1. I’m beginning to think that ESPN does not bother to evaluate the personalities they keep on the air. From Emmitt Smith to Eric Young to Digger Phelps to many others, exactly what are they thinking? Is there any accountability in Bristol? Come on, there has to be better talent out there. Thank God for Herbstreit, Bilas, and Tom Jackson.

  2. Yes, if you watch Digger while the others are talking about UL you can see him cringe ever so slightly. Watching him speak about his beloved Notre Dame losing to UL is even more of a chuckle!
