Kyle Kuric is getting back on track with his hoops career and is reaching new heights.  As previously mentioned a couple days ago via Louisville Sports Live, there are a handful of former Louisville Cardinals that will be taking part in the 2016 NBA Summer League. The names range from Russ Smith to Chane Behanan to new Draft pick Chinanu Onuaku. However, yet another name has surfaced for Summer League action. No, Terrence Williams is not making an NBA comeback (yet). Samaki Walker is not coming out of retirement. However, it is a fan favorite...Continue reading »

This position is absolutely stacked with talent, especially over the last 25 years.  This list took some time to finalize because of so many game-breakers.  Again, criteria is based solely upon collegiate production. Here goes…. 5. Deion Branch (2000-’01) 143 catches for 2,204 yards; 18 TDs.  He made an instant impact as soon as he stepped on the field for the Cards.  His numbers, which rank 9th all-time in catches and 7th all-time in yards were notched in just two years. The first team All-C-USA selection in both seasons went...Continue reading »

Up first on the “top 5” list are the signal callers; the guys who get the most pub or the most scorn.  This group, however, got well-deserved praise throughout their Cardinal careers.  The criteria here (and the following lists) are strictly what they did while on campus, hence no Johnny Unitas. 5. Dave Ragone (1999-’02) 685-1,180 58%, 8,564 yards; 74 TD – 29 INT.  This gutty QB is best known for helping to orchestrate the Cards’ huge upset of then #4 Florida State in that unforgettable monsoon.  He also led...Continue reading »

It has been a big week for a handful of former Louisville Cardinals — all of which are wanting to become the next big NBA star.  The 2016 NBA Draft is complete. There were quite a few names that slid down the draft board, and some slid off entirely. A few notable players that did not hear their names called include Indiana’s Yogi Ferrell and Troy Williams. One popular prospect, Kentucky’s Skal Labissiere, dropped from the lottery (projected) to the very end of the first round at pick No. 28. The University of Louisville...Continue reading »

  Louisville football coach Bobby Petrino appears to be prioritizing the running back this recruiting cycle, and while several three- and four-star backs are receiving interest from the Cards, none have the local connections that Central Catholic (OH) running back Michael Warren does. Warren, regarded as a four-star prospect by 247Sports.com, is originally a native of Paducah, KY, and his grandfather and other family members currently reside in Louisville. “My grandfather lives in Louisville, and so do some of my aunts and cousins,”...Continue reading »

Chinanu Onuaku will be drafted tonight, but it’s uncertain as to when.  Most mock drafts have him going in the early second round.  Damion Lee and Trey Lewis aren’t projected to hear their name called, but both will sign free agent deals and play in the Summer League next month. *Under Coach Pitino, 11 players have gone on to play in the NBA from UofL: Earl Clark, Gorgui Dieng, Reece Gaines, Francisco Garcia, Montrezl Harrell, Terry Rozier, Samardo Samuels, Peyton Siva, Chris Smith, Russ Smith, Terrence Williams Currently, Gorgui...Continue reading »

SB Nation’s Bill Connelly is college football’s stat guru, the Ken Pomeroy of pigskin.  In his preseason ACC Power Rankings, he projects the Cards as the lone team in ‘Tier 2’. Tier 2 3. Louisville I’m trying as hard as I can to keep my expectations for Jackson tamped down. He’s got work to do when it comes to avoiding mistakes as a passer — too many sacks and picks — but man oh man is he gorgeous with the ball in his hands. Almost the entire offense returns, along with a good portion of a...Continue reading »

It’s not summer until John Calipari opens his mouth to stir things up.  The odd thing about it all is the fact that he dominates Coach P on the court – there’s nothing he really needs to say.  However, he must have some deep seeded ego issues because he keeps taking veiled shots at Pitino and other coaches.  Maybe it’s because he’s underachieved so much?  Anyway, here’s how the two Hall of Fame rivals have stacked up since Cal’s arrival in 2009-10. Wins Pitino: 191-59 (.764) Calipari: 217-47 (.821) Head-to-Head...Continue reading »

  An Australian website, pickandroll.au.com recently published an article on Deng Adel that gave us a glimpse into his kind of expectations for the upcoming season.  In it, he discussed playing for Coach Pitino, his goals for the future, his injury, and what he expects from his team.  This is a really good offseason read. Adel is extremely driven and motivated as he works to achieve his goals. That drive and relentless pursuit of excellence was noticeable even before he headed to Louisville to play under legendary head coach Rick Pitino....Continue reading »
