The Breakdown – Notre Dame Edition   Getting to know the Irish: Head Coach: Mike Brey Record: 17-7 (8-4)   The Fighting Irish have flown under the radar for most of the season. They’re built on a big athletic front court and solid shooting from everywhere on the floor.   The Front Court: Senior Zach Auguste leads this unit and is averaging 29 minutes per game. The 6’10” Forward is shooting 54% from the field, good for 14.1 points per game, and pulling down an astonishing 10 rebounds per game. Auguste is a very physical force...Continue reading »

Coach P spent some time on “Mike and Mike” this morning and shared his thoughts on the scandal. Some snippets of what Coach Pitino said below: “The future is going to be bright for the Universty of Louisville,” Pitino said. “They’ve got a great leader in Tom Jurich. He’s like what no different than what Syracuse had to do….The system is broken. We need a president right now to step up and change this system because it is broken. You see years and years of investigation. Schools need to be fined heavily, coaches...Continue reading »

SI’s Seth Davis caught up with Coach Pitino to get more of his thoughts on Friday’s bombshell.  Towards the end of the interview, UofL’s coach offered a up slither of new information saying that Mcgee told him the girls were only there to “listen to music”.  Davis gets Coach P to sound off a little more on how he was left in the dark about the findings because the NCAA hasn’t spoken to him yet.  But because of all this, they’ll have plenty of time to do talk to him this March. Thanks again,...Continue reading »

The Breakdown – Duke Edition   Getting to know The Blue Devils: Head Coach: Mike Krzyzewski Record: 17-6 (6-4)   The Blue Devils enter a tough 4 game stretch that includes Louisville (twice) home against Virginia and on the road against North Carolina.   The Front Court: Graduate Student Marshall Plumlee leads this front court and has started every game this season.

Immediately following the news of U of L’s decision to suspend themselves from the men’s basketball 2016 postseason, several former players voiced their opinions via social media.  The University of Louisville announced on Friday their decision to self-impose a ban on any trip to the postseason that the men’s basketball team may earn. To some, this came as a complete shock because the NCAA has yet to come to any type of conclusion about incidents surrounding recruting efforts at U of L. This is obviously one of the biggest...Continue reading »

It got lost in the madness of the postseason ban (and the site being down) but we spoke to two of UofL’s highest regarded players in the 2016 class, WRs Dez Fitzpatrick and Chris Taylor Yamanoha.  Dez opened up about why he decommitted, then signed with Louisville.  He told us what he did on the visit and what the coaches told him.  CTY mentioned that he’d be open to playing defense and how much his mother wanted to see him red and black.

  Trey Lewis stood speechless in the locker room following Saturday’s win over Boston College as he held a sign a fan had given him which read, “We love you all forever, may God bless you all in all ways!!! Much love always.” “This just really means a lot to me,” the Louisville point guard said. Lewis, along with his fellow graduate transfer Damion Lee, transferred to Louisville for their final season to get one last chance to play in the NCAA Tourbament and cut down nets. Now, due to the administration’s...Continue reading »

  William Shakespeare, the greatest writer the world has ever known, wrote in his play, The Merchant of Venice, “The sins of the father are to be laid upon the children.” Whether Louisville fans are familiar with Shakespeare’s work or not, this verse is certainly one that Card Nation can painfully relate to following the last 48 hours. However, in this case, the word “father” can be replaced with “former assistant,” and instead of children, “current players” can be used. Make no...Continue reading »

There’s no doubt – at worst – Louisville is the 7th best college basketball program of all-time.  With news coming out that UofL-IU are close to finalizing a three-game series, the Cards will play four of the top college basketball “bluebloods” with some regularity.  Given their recent success, you could easily argue that they’ve surpassed Indiana among the elite programs to 6th.  However, when it comes to head-to-head battles, the Cards have some work to do…. vs. Kentucky (15-34) Last win against...Continue reading »

The Breakdown – North Carolina Edition Getting to know the Tar Heels: Head Coach: Roy Williams Record: 19-2   North Carolina has been arguably the most dominant team in college basketball. They are a complete team and are a perfect 8-0 in the ACC.   The Front Court: This front court for UNC is an embarrassment of riches led by Senior Brice Johnson. The 6’10” Power Forward has started every game this season, shooting 62% from the field and 78% from the free throw line averaging 16.8 points per game. Johnson leads the team in...Continue reading »

When football recruits visit campus, a game at the Yum Center is on the itinerary provided the Cards have a home game.  UofL’s student section – the “Louisville Bird Cage” – brought their ‘A-Game’ Saturday (when the basketball team didn’t) to assist in persuading top prospects to pick UofL.  From personalized signs to chants for players, the UofL students did their part for the football program. Kudos. @BoobieWake11 pic.twitter.com/J4Q4QWAx2E — Coach Eckloff (@YesCoach1) January 30, 2016 The...Continue reading »
