Hand me that bottle.

Please, please tell me Louisville is going to name its new academic center for Maker’s Mark.

Louisville athletic director Tom Jurich and Makers Mark COO Rob Samuels will hold a press conference later today announcing a partnership that will bring a new academic center to the University of Louisville.

The Academic Center of Excellence will be built under the South Terrace at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium. All of the proceeds from the Charlie Strong commemorative Makers Mark bottle which was released last week will go towards the project.

Yep, it’s one day after Mark Emmert nuked Penn State and you can already feel the culture of college athletics changing for the better.

    Hey it could be “Devils Cut”.

  2. Go Dawgs!

    So I guess Louisville students have to seal their papers or tests with melted wax now before turning them in?

  3. HVL Dawg

    I’ll drink to dat.

    Sounds like a Cardinal sin.
    If USC can call themselves the Trojans, was aquiring a dick for a head coach not fate?

  5. “Ladies & Gentlemen, welcome to Chick-fil-A field at Sanford Stadium…..”

    Coming soon to a PA near you.

    • Go Dawgs!

      If we all get sammiches, I’d have no problem with that.

      • “Our halftime show brought to you by the Gyro Wrap Redcoat Marching Band….”
        There’s really no end to this.

        • Wait, it gets worse. Erin Adrews-“Coach Richt, congratulations on winning the SEC” Mark Richt “First I’d like to thank God, then Nike, Chickfila, Riddell, Powerade, Joe Weider and Greg McGarity my crew chief and all the boys back in the shop that worked so hard to make this happen.

            I ain’t gonna lie, I thought you were going here:
            “Coach Richt, congratulations on winning the Nike SEC Championship”

            I shudder.

    If Michael Adams were president there he’d mandate it be called the Brown Bag Center For Academic Studies

    • Chopdawg

      Too bad Budwine never wanted to give us any money.

    • Cojones

      My company has a paid agreement with President Adams to name ours The Fing Scooter Center the day he steps down at UGA. Brown bags are optional.

      Hiney Wines is promoting a coed center at UCLA where students can stop and relax with a some good Hiney.

    I’m disgusted by this. They should have called me first.

    is the NCAA reform meme the new “doesnt congress have better things to do”?

    Penn State nuked Penn State.

    If South Carolina could get Keebler as a sponser, they could have the “Keebler Elf Stadium”, thus appeasing two entities with one title!

    • uglydawg

      Sorry, the correct spelling is “sponsor”.

    • Nick Saban

      Actually, on behalf of the University of Alabama I have already been in contact with Keebler about that and in addition to renaming our stadium “Elf Field” they want me to be the “Spokes Elf” for their new national ad campaign.

      • Cojones

        Any attempts to name it “Effing” Field will be met by litigation from the Fing Scooter Corp.

    Man this thread is what the good senator had in mind when he decided to forgo registration … :)

    Soon CFB will be like NASCAR. I can see Paul Johnson’s post game interview. “Well Coach, you almost broke that punt return early in the third quarter and your Yahoo . Com Yellow Jackets would have been right back in the game with the Georgia Pacific Bulldogs.” “That’s right, we made the turn in good shape, then that # 42 LB in the Days Inn helmet took the air off our spoiler and spun us out.”
