Louisville senior guard Russ Smith is set to graduate on Saturday, but he lost a precious memory from his time with the Cardinals thanks to FedEx.

According to Smith, FedEx threw away his 2013 national championship jersey. Smith had sent the framed jersey to his dad, but when it arrived, the frame was cracked. FedEx agreed to pay for the damages, but they still ended up throwing away his prized possession.

Based on Smith's tweets, you could tell that he was not happy.

While the jersey is probably not worth quite a lot to some, it was to Smith and the rest of his family.
