Louisville Lacks C(h)aracter

Posted by Matt on December 12, 2007


Get it? The headline is a double entendre….yeah, its not that funny to us, either.

As was announced by head coach Rick Pitino in a surprise press conference on Monday, the University of Louisville basketball team will be without 6-8 forward Derrick Caracter as he has been suspended by the team indefinitely for various violations including breaking curfew. Derrick has a troubled history with Louisville and seems to have a few, minor character issues that seemingly can’t keep him off of Pitino’s shit list and if you’ll remember along with me, Caracter was sent home roughly this time last year as a freshman in similar fashion. With fellow 6-8 forward Juan Palacios and 6-11 center David Padgett out with their respective injuries and Caracter out on his annual sabbatical, the low post in Freedom Hall is going to be awfully lonely this holiday season.

Maybe Derrick just gets antsy and anxious this time of year…you know,with finals and all? I know I do but nothing sooths my soul these days like a warm, tall glass of Louisville’s misfortunes.

I don’t, however, expect Caracter to be gone long as I see this as a move by Ricky P. to make it appear like he is doing the right thing amidst a severe need for interior depth only to bring Derrick back when a story around Louisville Nation distracts everyone enough not to notice the Pitino/Caracter story anymore.

Yeah…Pitino can begin thanking Bobby Petrino anytime now…
