The Courier Journal reports the Kentucky High School Athletic Association prefers to continue playing the Russell Athletics Commonwealth Gridiron Bowl in Bowling Green rather than move it back to Louisville.
Commissioner Julian Tackett says the KHSAA is pleased with being in Bowling Green and also noted the size of Houchens-LT Smith Stadium at 22,113 providing a more intimate setting than Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium which seats 55,000. Louisville had hosted the state finals from 1979-2008 at the old Cardinal Stadium and Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium.
College Football: The 2013 season has yet to begin, however, Kentucky’s 2014 schedule is already known. One notable thing on it is the Louisville game will now be the final game of the regular season. The game will be played November 29th at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium in Louisville.
Kentucky’s home games next year include the opener with UT Martin August 30th, followed by Ohio University and an October 11th date with Louisiana Monroe.

College Basketball: Defending national champion Louisville has released its schedule. The Cardinals open at home hosting College of Charleston November 9th. The Cardinals will also host Western Kentucky December 14th in a game to be televised on ESPN 2 and travel to Kentucky December 28th. Louisville opens its only season in the American Athletic Conference January 4th at Rutgers, with Memphis the first AAC home game on January 9th.
Minor League Baseball: The Tennessean says there appears to be a push to build a new stadium for the Nashville Sounds baseball team. A report indicates Nashville mayor Karl Dean has presented an $80 million plan to build a new ball park at the site of the former Sulphur Dell stadium to state officials.
Sulphur Dell was the home for professional baseball in Nashville from the 1860’s until 1963. The Sounds have been playing in Greer Stadium since minor league baseball returned to the Music City in 1978.
