It seemed like forever that UofL was stuck with just one verbal commitment – 3-star DB TJ Jallow.  Some fans were getting restless because there was next to no buzz about recruiting.  Would Petrino’s image hurt UofL’s chances of landing a great recruiting class?  Over the last few weeks, those fears have been calmed.  The staff collectively has pulled their weight to reel in recruits.  Most notably Grantham, Buckley and Thomas have been putting in work in Alabama, Georgia, Florida, and Mississippi reeling in the best...Continue reading »

In a commitment that came out of nowhere, Coach Petrino may have landed the best prospect in his 2015 class to date as 4-star Lamar Jackson verballed to UofL.  The 6’3 185 lb. signal caller from Boynton Beach, FL had offers from Auburn, Clemson, Florida State, Georgia, Ohio State, South Carolina, among others. “Jackson is one of he nation’s elite dual-threats,” 247Sports analyst Ryan Bartow said. “He throws a better ball than most realize and explosive on the zone read. He has elite quickness and live arm.” Jackson,...Continue reading »

    UofL makes its ACC debut in just two days.  PJCS will be rockin’ and the fans will be the rowdiest they’ve ever been.  Here’s a look at how Louisville stacks up against its new league members in football with the overall record and last meeting between the schools.  Is it game time yet?

It’s no secret that Bobby Petrino is a master when it comes to preparation and game planning.  The precision he demands during practice ensures that his team is always ready to encounter any and everything the opponent will throw at them.  At Louisville, he posted a 41-9 record, at Arkansas he went 34-17, and at Western his first and only team posted an 8-4 mark.  In those opening games, he posted an impressive record of 9-0 with an average margin of victory of 24.2 points per game.  The opponents – UK five times, Missouri...Continue reading »

Coach Petrino’s calling card has always been offense, with an emphasis on the quarterback.  As Will Gardner steps into his new starting role, he has the benefit of being coached and prepared by a coach who has been called an offensive genius.  If you look at how his QBs have performed in their first game of their career (and season overall) you’ll see why so many Cardinal fans are excited to see and are confident in the 6’5 – 225 lb kid from Douglas, Ga.  While Miami is the toughest opening opponent a Petrino coached...Continue reading »

  It sort of flew under the radar, but all of the major sports teams at UofL (and their coaching staffs) participated in the school’s Opening Weekend Kickoff Party last night at Captains Quarters. The event was designed to provide some hype around the students not only returning to school, but also the start of football and soccer, which each begin this weekend. Head men’s basketball coach Rick Pitino took to the stage at one point with a few of his players, but also briefly met with the media to give a full update on his...Continue reading »

  I know Pimp Nasty Unk wants to pretend like the Russell Athletic Bowl never happened, but apparently the Miami players haven’t forgotten. In fact, in today’s edition of the Palm Beach Post, a couple of those players were quoted as saying they felt disrespected by the Louisville team during the 36-9 route in Orlando. The game, which was never in question, actually could have been a lot worse since the Cards took a knee on the final possession and gave up an uncharacteristic safety on their opening drive. Yet, some Canes players...Continue reading »
