Louisville coach Jeff Walz is doing whatever he can to help the third-seeded Cardinals draw a huge crowd for their opening-round NCAA Tournament game Friday against Central Arkansas.

He offered Tuesday to email or call the boss of anyone who wanted to come to the game but couldn't because of work. He's already had a few dozen fans take him up on that, including someone in the mayor's office.

Walz said in a phone interview Wednesday that "whoever sends me a note on Twitter or on Facebook -- if they give me their boss' email -- I'm writing them a note asking if they can make the ballgame."
