Siva, Tyler Make Parade Alll American Team

Two future Cardinals have been named to the Parade All American Team.  2009 commit Peyton Siva was named to the third team as 2010 commit Jeremy Tyler was named to the second team.

Peyton Siva, a 6’1″ guard out of Franklin High School in Seattle is expected to have an instant impact for the Cards next year.  Jeremy Tyler who is 6’11” is one of the best big men in the class of 2010 and should be another “diaper dandy” for the Cardinals in a couple of years.  The only other players of note to make the team was possible Kentucky commit DeMarcus Cousins who is expected to follow coach John Calipari from Memphis to the Wildcats.

I’m excited for Siva.  He’s small but he’s a tremendous athlete and he’s got some hops.  Make sure to check out the video below.

No Kentucky High School players were named to any of the four teams.

NCAA Louisville NCarolina BasketballThe Cardinals are enjoying a dream season en route to winning 33 games so far, the most in school history.  Angel Mccoughtry has become one of the most decorated athletes in school history and could possibly be a #1 pick in the WNBA draft.  and Jeff Walz is one of the hottest names in coaching right now, at least in women’s basketball.

Michael Bush to the Bengals?

Raiders Chiefs Football

Sources are telling me that former Louisville running back Michael Bush is going to be traded to Cincinnati for Chad Johnson.  Michael Bush ran for 177 yards and 2 touchdowns Oakland’s in season finale last year.  This is sweet, considering I’m a lifelong Bengals fan.  Stay tuned.
