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 — Coach Eckloff (@YesCoach1) January 30, 2016 The...Continue reading »

The Virginia debacle is over and the all around ineptitude with it can now be forgotten.  At 17-4 and 6-2 in the league, the Cards have 10 games remaining on the schedule and only one of those is a virtual automatic win.  Here they are with a brief prediction of how each game will play out…. #2 North Carolina (Likely Loss) The game is at home and you should expect the Cards to play much better than they did against UVa.  The Tar Heels aren’t nearly as defensive minded as the Cavaliers are, so UofL shouldn’t have as much...Continue reading »

  With five days left until national signing day, Louisville coach Bobby Petrino and staff are set to host the biggest football recruiting weekend (visit list) of the season in hopes of signing another impressive class. Current commits, former commits, and players committed elsewhere all will be in town for official visits, and Petrino and company hope to close on multiple prospects who have yet to make up their mind. The Cards currently are in possession of the 38th best class in the country (7th in the ACC), according to 247Sports Composite...Continue reading »
