So much Payne: Fans, media roast Louisville hoops for finishing season 4-28
Don’t worry, Louisville fans. It’s all over now.
The Cardinals saw their worst season in program history come to an end Tuesday at the hands of Boston College, 80-62. The Cardinals now officially finish the season 4-28, with only 2 conference wins.
Louisville had basically zero guard play the entire season, falling to a seemingly new low for a program as historically relevant as Louisville. First-year Louisville head coach Kenny Payne even told reporters late in the season he felt the team was not showing enough effort.
As the Cardinals look to put this season behind them, fans and media weighed in on the mess that was Louisville’s 2022-23 season.

This isn’t even rivalry trash talk. Just being real
I am shocked at how bad Louisville was this year. I really like Kenny and hope things get better for him but I would have never imagined they would be this terrible

Thank god that the Louisville men’s season is finally over. Which is such a sad thing to be saying. Even last year, when we were god awful, I was genuinely excited when they won an ACCT game and was pulling for the miracle run.
This year, I was just ready for it to end.

Louisville finished the season with more top-100 recruits on their roster (5) than total wins

Only thing to say about this Louisville men’s basketball season is I’m so, so glad it’s over. #L1C4 #FireKennyPayne https://t.co/o2iFzvtE8E

Hit the portal and find some legitimate guards. Absolutely asinine and that you played an entire season with one guard.
Absolutely embarrassing season.

Four and twenty-eight – an historic failure. Never again.
