  Lindy’s, typically one of the better preseason college football publications out there, is in the midst of counting down their top 40 teams for the 2014 season and today Louisville checked in at #31. The Cards were picked last week by ACC media and coaches to finish third in the Atlantic Division behind Florida State and Clemson. My only beef with the piece is that it appears to be written before last week or they just didn’t do all of their homework since Robert Clark is still listed as one of receivers to watch.

The move to the ACC got everyone talking (and rightfully so) about football and the opportunity to play Duke and UNC in hoops.  However, one aspect that isn’t getting enough recognition is the fact that Louisville will get to re-unite with old foes Georgia Tech, Florida State, and Virginia Tech.  While all three schools were in the Metro at one point, the Yellow Jackets were in that league just three years (1975-78), but Coach Crum kept them on the schedule after they left the league.  Florida State stuck around a while longer –...Continue reading »

  If you’re a Louisville fan, last week was about as good as it gets as far as recruiting goes. On Sunday, the Cards secured a commitment from Deng Adel, a consensus 5-star wing from Florida and then followed it up five days later by landing hometown Trinity phenom, Ray Spalding. Now, Rick Pitino and his staff have clearly shifted their focus to the backcourt in 2015 as they look to round out their class. While bigger-name prospects like Antonio Blakeney and Isaiah Briscoe certainly remain possibilities, the smart money is probably...Continue reading »

  In news that should shock absolutely no one in the city of Louisville, Minnesota Vikings head coach Norv Turner believes that Teddy Bridgewater was a steal at the tail end of the first round in May’s NFL draft. To be specific, Turner said that he’s been so impressed with Bridgewater that he believes he should have been picked inside the top-10. Again, no shock to those of us that watched him shred college defenses for three years, but it’s been frustrating to see the lack of respect from some scouts and GM’s...Continue reading »

  In a press conference held earlier this month, Louisville coach Rick Pitino named sophomore centers Mangok Mathiang and Akoy Agau as the two most improved players on the returning roster. “The two biggest improvements on the team without question are Akoy Agau and Mangok Mathiang,” Pitino told the media. “Akoy is a different person physically, emotionally, mentally. That’s a great thing for us because we need that position desperately…Mangok battled against Kentucky the last game of the season and now he’s physically...Continue reading »
