  Louisville coach Bobby Petrino has a knack for finding diamonds in the rough. He has found lightly recruited, unheralded players in the past like Eric Wood, Elvis Dumervil, Amobi Akoye, Harry Douglas, Gary Barnidge, and others and turned them into impact players at both the college and NFL level. Now, as part of his quest to restock the Louisville offensive line, he is hoping lightning has struck for him once again. Sunday afternoon, Gerrik Vollmer, a 6-5, 285 lb. offensive lineman who happens to be the starting left tackle for Germany’s...Continue reading »

The wait is finally over.  We can stop asking the question of when (or if) the ACCN would ever become a reality.  News broke yesterday evening about the launch of the ESPN network and then more details trickled out.  The network like we know of from the Big Ten and SEC will go live in 2019 while a web based streaming version – “ACC Network Plus” – will launch in August.  Why the wait until 2019? Because ESPN's cable/satellite operator deals don't expire any time soon. — John...Continue reading »

  Both the Louisville football and basketball staff have been busy this July. Rick Pitino and staff have been traveling the country to AAU tournaments to establish who they want to prioritize for their 2017 class, while Bobby Petrino and staff just wrapped up their first annual “Light Up the Ville” elite camp. So far, only Petrino’s efforts have resulted in commitments, as he added three new names to his 2017 class following verbal commitments from safety Lyndarius Strange, safety Anthony Thomas, and outside linebacker...Continue reading »

  Since his return to Louisville, Bobby Petrino has landed top-tier commitments at quarterback and wide receiver, but he has not had the same success in recruiting an impact running back. So it seems odd that despite being in ideal position to land a commitment from four-star Ohio running back Michael Warren, he is holding off on extending an offer. Warren, who attended Louisville’s “Light Up the Ville” camp Friday night, was hoping to land an official offer from the staff, but instead he left empty handed. The staff...Continue reading »

  The Louisville football staff hosted perhaps more high school talent than they ever had previously during Friday night’s “Light Up the Ville” football camp, and none may have been more impressive than four-star wide receiver Corey Reed. Phrases like “elite,” “college-ready,” and “unstoppable” were some of the ones used by those in attendance to describe Reed’s performance. Following camp, Reed said he wasn’t surprised be his performance because he came prepared. “I...Continue reading »

The Louisville football staff held the first annual “Light Up the Ville” invite-only football camp Friday night, featuring several of the country’s top prospects, and on the morning after, the Cards now have three new names to their 2017 football class. Two safeties out of Florida, Anthony Johnson and Lyndarius Strange, actually committed during the camp, while talented three-star outside linebacker Dorian Etheridge from West Virginia made his commitment Saturday morning. Etheridge, who held offers from West Virginia, Virginia...Continue reading »

The shoe and apparel war between adidas, Nike, and Under Armour never ends.  UCLA, who had been with adidas since 1999, left for Under Armour with an eye popping 15-year $250M+ deal. Wisconsin, who had been sponsored by adidas as well, parted ways with them and signed with Under Armour for the next 10 years.  In April of 2014, Louisville announced that they signed a 5-year, $39 million extension with adidas.  With that said, it’s time to look at from the various companies that outfit the nation’s Power 5 teams.  Nike has long...Continue reading »
