Russ Smith’s short stint with Luoyang has come to a close and the results are record-shattering.  During his time as a University of Louisville Cardinal, Russ Smith left a major mark on the school’s history.  “Russdiculous” produced greater than 300 rebounds, greater than 300 assists, and greater than 200 steals in his four-year collegiate career to complement his 1,908 total points scored.  Oh yeah, he also played a huge role in bringing the 2013 NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship to “The...Continue reading »

Fox Sports college football analyst Joel Klatt ruffled the collective feathers of CardNation a couple of weeks ago when he elected to leave the Heisman Trophy winner off his Top 5 QB list.  Given the video game-type and record breaking numbers he put up, it’s mind boggling that anyone would omit Lamar Jackson from any elite quarterback list.

Asia Taylor spent four years donning the University of Louisville uniform, but that does not mean she is done strengthening the Louisville community.  Fans of the Louisville Cardinals have always embraced the young women and men wearing the red, white, and black colors.

However, this...Continue reading »

As a result of pure domination of the competition at the Chinese NBL level, Russ Smith will soon look to do the same versus a greater opposition.  In the past four games in which Louisville legend Russ Smith has appeared with Luoyang of the Chinese NBL, he has posted an average of 70.8 points per game. And no, there is no decimal typo.  Smith’s scoring output this summer with Luoyang has been truly “Russdiculous.” That is all there is to it. Week after week, you can count on hearing news of scoreboard-shattering...Continue reading »

On Friday, Donovan Mitchell participated in the annual NBA Rookie Photo Shoot presented by Panini America.  Donovan Mitchell is the latest University of Louisville product to be drafted in the first round of the NBA Draft. He was selected 13th overall by the Denver Nuggets before being sent to the Utah Jazz via trade.  After piecing together multiple stunning performances in NBA Summer League action, Mitchell has entered the dog days of summer. This is the slow period prior to the start of NBA training camps, which will begin in...Continue reading »

  During Louisville’s tailspin throughout the last three games of the 2016 season, no group was more criticized than the players responsible for keeping Lamar Jackson safe. Finishing the season ranked third-to-last nationally in sacks allowed (47 in 13 games), the Louisville offensive line became the scapegoat for crashing and burning away a potential College Football Playoff berth and becoming a national punchline. Coach Bobby Petrino said during Saturday’s media day that placing blame solely on the offensive line for the...Continue reading »

There may not be another Heisman Trophy winner in the history of the award who has received as much disrespect and criticism as Louisville QB Lamar Jackson. Whether that means national “experts” creating top 5 player/quarterback lists and intentionally leaving him off or whether it dates back to last December when similar experts were (and still are) saying his Heisman victory was undeserved, the image of Jackson hoisting the most prestigious award in college football last December may as well have been a hologram. For Jackson,...Continue reading »

The new 40-player BIG3 league does not contain any former Louisville Cardinals, but what if there were? Would you watch them at the KFC Yum! Center?  The new three-on-three basketball league for former NBA players, known as the BIG3 league, is coming to the state of Kentucky on Sunday, August 6th.  Rapper/actor Ice Cube is the BIG3 league’s creator. He has built a fun and entertaining event that travels across the nation, much like the current NBA does. In fact, he is selling out NBA arenas this summer with this big idea.  40...Continue reading »

Pre-season rankings for college football were released on Thursday. I laughed out loud when news outlets summed up the poll as “traditional powers dominate pre-season poll.” Isn’t that the selling point every year? College football media—more so than any other sports media—sticks with the old guard/old money to draw attention to the sport. Think of it this way: if the University of Arizona, a Power 5 school rich with resources but is nowhere close to being a traditional power in college football, had a Cinderella...Continue reading »

The United Coaches pre-season poll for NCAA men’s soccer has been released and our Louisville Cardinals men’s soccer team checks in at #9 in the poll. That’s the good news. The bad news is that there are FOUR ACC opponents ranked ahead of the Cards in this poll. Clemson is ranked #1. Wake Forest is ranked #3. North Carolina is ranked #5. Syracuse is ranked #8. Louisville closes the regular-season on October 27th at Clemson. The Cards host Wake Forest (9/9) and North Carolina (10/13). The Tar Heels and Demon Deacons both...Continue reading »
