  Salem High School (GA) star wide receiver Justin Marshall has been hotly pursued by some of the nation’s premier programs, but as he nears his decision, Louisville appears to be in prime position to land his services. “(Louisville) is my number one,” Marshall said Saturday morning. “Growing up, I always wanted to be a Cardinal. It’s been like a second home to me and has always been in the back of my head. When I got the opportunity (to be recruited by Louisville), I felt like it was God giving me the...Continue reading »

Last year, Oklahoma President David Boren re-ignited the conference realignment discussion when he came out publicly and admitted that Big 12 schools would still get an equal amount of TV money if the league added teams.  More importantly, nobody would lose any loot if the Big 12 brought additional teams on board.  That flew in the face of what commissioner Bob Bowlsby constantly said for over 5 years – that current schools would lose money by bringing in new ones.  He also called out the Longhorn Network, calling it “a problem”. “I...Continue reading »

  Like last year, UofL faces a front loaded schedule having to play preseason Top 10 opponents Florida State and Clemson within the first five weeks of the season.  Here’s a look at how each game stacks up…. 12.  Charlotte –  The 49ers are still relatively new to the FBS level.  The Cards figure to roll here. 11.  Wake Forest – There is a HUGE gap between Charlotte and everyone on else on the schedule.  UofL has had their hands full with the Demon Deacons in the two years they’ve been in the ACC, squeaking...Continue reading »

Bolstered by by two teams who are by many prognostications top 5, the ACC Atlantic should once again be among the nation’s best divisions.  Behind the Tigers and ‘Noles are the Cards, who are in just about everyone’s Top 25.  Figure in the amount of NFL Draft picks over the last couple of years and those projected to go this May and it’s easy to see why it’s so loaded. Last year, according to SB Nation’s S&P Ratings, the Atlantic was behind only the SEC West. As far as NFL Draft picks are concerned,...Continue reading »

  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 »

Coach Petrino, Lamar Jackson and Keith Kelsey all made the rounds in Charlotte during the ACC Kickoff.  UofL is predicted to finish third in the Atlantic behind Clemson and FSU, but all three representatives didn’t shy away from the high expectations placed on them for the upcoming season.

The guys spoke to a couple of ACC insiders in David Teel and Luke DeCock on the program.  We discussed the ins and outs of the ACC Network and looked at ahead at the upcoming ACC football season. VN:F [1.9.22_1171]please wait...Rating: 0.0/10 (0 votes cast)...

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. https://t.co/xuP8CkSRnJ — 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 »
