After securing a verbal commitment from highly touted Junior College point guard Chris Jones on Monday, Louisville coach Rick Pitino, who turned 60 years old Tuesday, received a pleasant belated birthday gift Wednesday when top 100 power forward Akoy Agau called to inform him he would be accepting the coach’s scholarship offer and will be playing for Louisville...Continue reading »

Darius Ashley was once regarded as one of the top college running backs prospects in the country. He was a star player for the nation’s top-ranked high school team, Cincinnati St. Xavier. He was listed as the 17th best all-purpose back in the class of 2008 (a 3-star recruit) by Rivals.com and claims he had close to 50 scholarship offers. He appeared to have an incredibly...Continue reading »

Well, that was…interesting. This was definitely a game of two halves. The first half, the Cards looked like a legitimate t0p 15 team that was clicking on all cylinders. The second half was maybe one of the worst halves I have seen from a Cardinal football team in years. It was mind boggling just how much the Cards imploded in the second half. The lesson here is...Continue reading »

Head Coach Charlie Strong announced on his radio show last night that running back Dominique Brown would likely not suit up for the North Carolina game this Saturday at 3:30. This is a bit of unsettling news, as what was originally called a “minor” injury will now have kept Brown out three games. The staff is either hiding the true seriousness of the injury,...Continue reading »

It was reported over the weekend that Rick Pitino offered 7-0 Cameroon native Joel Embiid a scholarship, and we now have a highlight video of him in action (tip of the hat to Card Chronicle). Thoughts: -He is very, very, very, very, VERY raw. You can the potential is there, but it is very clear he is still learning the game. -I’ve said it once, I’ll say it...Continue reading »

On September 16 of last year, Syracuse and Pittsburgh shocked the sports world when the schools announced they would be leaving the Big East for the ACC. Nearly one year later, as first  reported by ESPN’s Brett McMurphy, Notre Dame has announced it will join them in bolting the Big East for the ACC, sans football (of course…). Once Pitt and Syracuse announced,...Continue reading »

According to Dennis Dodd of CBSSports.com, the Big East hopes become the other conference, along with the ACC, with a direct tie-in to the Orange Bowl. The Big East makeover won’t necessarily end with conference realignment and expansion. The conference hopes to remain relevant by grabbing a spot in the Orange Bowl. “We’re working hard on some access,”...Continue reading »

  According to several reports by recruiting analysts including ESPN’s Dave Telep, Scout.com’s Evan Daniels, and others, the University of Louisville is no longer recruiting 5-star point guard Anthony “Cat” Barber. He was the highest ranked Louisville recruit and with the departure of Peyton Siva after this season, he would have been a likely...Continue reading »

-Let’s start with the obvious. Teddy Bridgewater is…phenomanal. There really is no other way to describe him. 30-39, 344 yds, 2 TDs (should have been 3), 0 picks (technically, he did have a turnover due to the awful fumble call by the notoriously awful Big East refs). He simply looks like a man playing against boys out there. Of those 9 completions, several...Continue reading »

It appears Louisville basketball recruiting is heating up as two elite 2013 prospects, point guard Anthony “Cat” Barber (left) and power forward/center Marcus Lee, will be visiting Louisville this weekend, according to InsideTheVille.com. The Cards will also be hosting JUCO stud PG Chris Jones the following week and conduct an in-home visit with elite small...Continue reading »

Äæåê Ðè÷åð ôèëüì After rushing for 92 yards on 26 carries this preseason, former Louisville running back Bilal Powell has been named the New York Jets’ third-down back and primary backup for starter Shonn Greene, defeating former USC star Joe McKnight for the spot. According to NFL.com’s Marc Sessler, Powell is also regarded as a much better...Continue reading »

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 »
