As Brent reported in the post below, the Cards moved up in both the AP and Coach’s Poll today, coming in at #23 in the AP and #24 in the Coach’s. The Cards deserved a bump in the polls after Sunday’s decisive win over the rival Kentucky Wildcats, but as everyone who watched the game knows, the final score of 32-14 could have been far worse if Charlie...Continue reading »

-Before going into U of L analysis, I am going to tip my hat to UK and Joker Phillips. The fact of the matter is that U of L is simply a better football team and will be for the forseeable future. However, this team came in and played to win. There was not an ounce of quit in them, and despite being overmatched, they kept on pounding. Maxwell Smith is so much better than...Continue reading »

The NFL preseason is officially over and the regular season begins next week. As always, rosters need to be finalized. By Friday at 9 pm EST, NFL teams had to trim their rosters to 53 players and several former Cards players were affected. Here is how a number of them fared out, along with how other former Cards did this preseason. -Bilal Powell (pictured) of the New...Continue reading »

According to several reports from writers including Evan Daniels, Jody Demling, and Dave Telep, the University of Louisville is no longer in the mix for former Xavier wing Dez Wells. The former All-Conference player would have been a major late pick up for the Cards, but the team simply did not have an available scholarship after adding center Mangok Mathiang. Wells...Continue reading »

We are down to the final leg of the “U of L Position Breakdown” series and we end with the most vital position on the field: quarterback. This is a long overdue post, but there is not much to be said about this position that has not already be said. Teddy Bridgewater going into just his sophomore season has the chance to break out as one of the premier signal...Continue reading »

Ladies and Gentlemen, we are officially one week away from kickoff and I can barely contain my excitement. This time next week Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium will be filled with excited fans tailgating in the parking lot. It will be glorious. As gameday gets closer and closer, fans like me tend to get impatient and just like Christmas morning growing up, we want it...Continue reading »

It is not exactly news that the Big East is not the most dominant football conference. Even fans of Big East schools know that. With U of L as the only program making an appearance in the AP Top 25, it is pretty much a given at this point. Yet, the folks over at ESPN would like to constantly reiterate that they believe the Big East is garbage. The latest is Kirk Herbstreit’s...Continue reading »

Yesterday, released bowl projections for each Big East team with postseason expectations. The projections are based off of BCS expert Jerry Palm’s computer formula in which he ranked every FBS team (the Cards came in at #29). The projection for Louisville will likely be received by fans with a lot of excitement and quite a bit of anxiety as well....Continue reading »

Clemson wide receiver transfer Bryce McNeal has finally arrived at Louisville and is officially practicing with the team in full pads. His arrival coincidentally came about the same time it was announced sophomore wide receiver Michaelee Harris would miss the season with a torn ACL. As a former top 100 player out of high school and US Army All-American, fans will likely want...Continue reading »

One of the most underappreciated positions on the football field is special teams. It is rare that special teams players get the same type of press and attention as regular offensive and defensive players, and fans are not exactly rushing out to buy the jersey of a team’s punt protector (unless his name happens to be Tim Tebow). Yet, field position, the kicking...Continue reading »

Wednesday’s U of L media day was a pretty straightforward event, and while there was nothing overly signifcant news coming from the coaches, it was a successful and fun event to be apart of, as I imagine it always is. The most significant news from Coach Strong was that he was not sure where Zeke Pike would play, despite reports saying he would play tight end,...Continue reading »
