Kenny Payne's Louisville Cardinals lost 66-61 last Saturday night against Boston College in the KFC Yum Center, and it was likely his last game on the Cardinals home floor.

Louisville trailed by 6-12 points seemingly the whole game against Boston College, and it was another very frustrating loss for the cardinals. Louisville got down big, cut the lead down in the 2nd half, but then could not make the plays needed to finish late in the game. It is a formula that Louisville fans have become way too accustomed too.

Louisville will play NC State in the ACC Tourney this week, and that will likely be Payne's last game coached as the Louisville head coach, due to his 12-51 record.

The Kenny Payne era at Louisville has been full of bad coaching, questionable staff moves, under developing good talent, and questionable recruiting as well. It is almost certain that Payne will not be retained by Athletic Director Josh Heird, and the rumors surrounding the coaching search have already surfaced.

Everyone wanted Kenny Payne to succeed here at Louisville, but not only has he failed, but he has brought this program down further than any NCAA violations or previous coach has ever done.

Louisville basketball is looking to get back on track, and that all starts with dismissing Kenny Payne wednesday morning.
