Former football cat selling t-shirts, getting in a dig at Cardinals


LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WTVQ)- After the news broke that the University of Louisville is under federal investigation, a former UK football player was selling t-shirts, getting in a dig at the Cardinals.

Jared Lorenzen’s shirt company, ThrowboyTees, is selling designs that show dead cardinals and say RIPPITINO. On social media, people were shocked at how quickly the company had designed the shirts. Lorenzen says it is something he and his friends pride themselves on.

“Anybody that follows us knows we are sarcastic and we are gonna get after you, and when it comes to Louisville we’re going to really get after you, and there’s nothing they can say or do right now. That’s the best part,” Lorenzen said.

Lorenzen says Throwboy is trying to get any shirts ordered Tuesday delivered by Saturday in case fans want to wear them to the game.
