Twitter Reacts to Louisville and Chris Mack ‘Separation Agreement’




Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Mack is on his way out.

The Louisville Cardinals and head coach Chris Mack are reportedly finalizing a separation agreement for Mack and the Cards to part ways in Mack’s fourth season. The Cardinals sit at 11-9 on the season and have gone through a multitude of turmoil in the ‘21-’22 season.

Now, Mack seems to be on his way out just two seasons after fielding a top-10 team in 2019-20. Earlier today, Mack’s coaches radio show was canceled and reports surfaced that the Board of Trustees and the Athletic Association would be meeting on Wednesday.

After those initial reports, the writing seemed to be on the wall.

Louisville will be searching for a new head coach, their second coaching search in five seasons.

What was your favorite moment of the Chris Mack era at Louisville? Here’s what Twitter had to say about the impending agreement:

A source has confirmed to ⁦@TheAthletic⁩ that Chris Mack and Louisville are finalizing a separation agreement pending Board approval tomorrow.

Many in the industry believe that Louisville is one of the top seven or eight jobs in college basketball.

Long line for this one.

UofL has called a joint meeting for tomorrow at 4:00 for the Board of Trustees and the UofL Athletic Association. The meeting will address “pending litigation and personnel matters.” Also, the Chris Mack coaches show schedule for tonight has been canceled.

Source tells me there will be a meeting at Minardi Hall Wednesday morning at 830 with Louisville players, Chris Mack and interim AD Josh Heird.

Louisville and Chris Mack are negotiating a separation agreement, per @SethDavisHoops.

Sure wish he had never left Xavier. What a mess.

This guy would never agree to leave his team mid season would he

Former Louisville star Butch Beard on U of L basketball: “They have run it into the ground. Right now the basketball program is in the Ohio River, right next to the Belle of Louisville. The Belle of Louisville is going to float. The basketball program is getting ready to drown.”

Would love to hear the UofL conspiracy theories about Payne being a Calipari mole within the program if it’s KP

A lot of stuff has went down (or up) at Minardi over the years.

Will Wade is the only answer. Please. I’m begging. I’ll do anything.

Nate Oats clearly tanking for the Louisville job. Race is on.

“So you boys need a basketball coach?”

Tom Crean has his team playing like a man who wants the Louisville job

Louisville hires that would worry/annoy Kentucky, or at least its fans, the most: Bruce Pearl, Kenny Payne.

Pearl would get under Cal’s skin. KP is the only human out there who might have the clout and connections to pry DJ Wagner, No. 1 in 2023, from Cal and UK.

Listen here y’all I’m dead serious… if you’re telling me there’s a chance I see Bruce Pearl at a Kroger in LOUISVILLE…… I won’t be able to not approach.

There aren’t a ton of college basketball hires that were universally praised only to fall flat like Chris Mack at Louisville. Archie Miller comes immediately to mind, but he’s one of only a few. Maybe Shaka at Texas? But I even remember some hesitancy about the fit at that time

— Craig Meyer (@CraigMeyerPG) January 26, 2022

Trying to think of the best Chris Mack memories at Louisville:
– Apologizing to Coach Cal for a ‘leaked’ video with Eric Wood
– Upsetting Buster Olney when he blew off a halftime interview
– Having the entire fanbase turn on him in under 4 years

Two Mothers Clash Over Integration in ‘What’s Mine & Yours’





At the center of author Naima Coster’s novel What’s Mine & Yours are two struggling mothers. Jade is a Black single mother who is trying to provide a better life for her son, and Lacey May is a white mother who is trying to give her daughters the life she never had. Their stories will intertwine over decades, starting with when Lacey May opposes the integration of her daughters’ school – the same school Jade is trying to get her son into. Coster told NPR’s Audie Cornish that fiction gives us a window into other people’s lives but that does not mean we have to condone their actions.

Rose Namajunas-Carla Esparza Rematch Scheduled for UFC 274 in May




UFC strawweight champion Rose Namajunas and former champ Carla Esparza are expected to meet for a second time at UFC 274 on May 7. Sports Illustrated’s Justin Barrasso was the first to report the news of the match-up being in the works via a tweet, although the promotion themselves have yet to confirm anything regarding the booking. Esparza won the pair’s initial meeting back at The Ultimate Fighter 20 Finale in December 2014, where she defeated Namajunas via a third-round submission due to a rear-naked choke to become the inaugural UFC women’s strawweight champion. The 34-year old Torrance, California native currently is on a five-fight winning streak and is coming off of a second-round TKO victory over Yan Xiaonan at UFC Vegas 27. Namajunas meanwhile is 6-1 in her last seven Octagon outings and will try to build on a split-decision win over former UFC strawweight champion, Zhang Weili, in their rematch back at UFC 268.
