(Photo – USATSI)   When the 2013 schedule was finalized and released to the masses, you could hear the collective groans across the Derby City. It’s devoid of any marquee out-of-conference games (though, once more for the record, that was not UofL’s fault. They tried to line up games against Georgia, Alabama and Texas A&M) and the makeshift AAC is just a glorified version of Conference USA. In short, the schedule is not good. But what can the coaches, players or fans do about it? All we can do is play the hand we’re...Continue reading »

  One things is for sure, this probably won’t end well for Jerome Solomon. As we speak, his twitter feed is being taken over by Louisville fans predictably slinging venom his way after he shot out a less-than-flattering tweet denigrating the Core Values poster that sits outside of the Louisville football offices and locker room. Solomon’s tweet basically made fun of the notion that a team’s core values are centered around gun and drug prevention. Now, before going any further, I think there’s a few things that...Continue reading »

As the summer treads forward, Louisville’s list of recruits for the 2014 class continues to broaden and expand. A few weeks ago the backcourt looked solid with Quentin Snider and JaQuan Lyle, but Snider has since de-committed and now the Louisville coaches are searching for another guard. The usual suspects in the front court remain on the target list (Trey Lyles, Cliff Alexander, Myles Turner, Goodluck Okonoboh, etc) but a few names have recently popped up, as well.  Here’s a quick breakdown of a few new names to keep an eye on...Continue reading »

LSL recently caught up with UofL LB Coach Brian Jean-Mary and asked him a few questions about the upcoming season. LSL:  Coach, how have you handled your team about potentially getting overconfident after the Sugar Bowl win? BJM: It only takes five minutes being around Coach Strong before you realize that last year was great and we appreciated it, but the 2013 team now has to make its own identity.  We’ve been saying that since the end of the Sugar Bowl and with having so many guys returning, his pitch to them has been you still have...Continue reading »

The Collegiate Licensing Company released their top selling universities and manufacturers today and UofL climbed seven spots from 32nd last year to 25th this year.  No doubt, the Sugar Bowl, the national championship, and the women’s Final Four run played a major role in that boost.  Louisville was one of only six schools that finished in the Top 25 that wasn’t a “state” school, with Notre Dame, Texas A&M, Auburn, Oklahoma State, and Clemson placing ahead of UofL. *The University of Louisville moved from No....Continue reading »

LSL: Preston, what did you learn from that Sugar Bowl win and how will you use what you learned for the upcoming season? PB: I think we took away from that game that we can play with anyone in the country when we get time to prepare and focus on the game.  From my perspective, I just need to be more aggressive and play ‘like my hair is on fire’ like my coaches always tell me to play.  It was a fun game and everyone had a good experience from it so hopefully we can carry it over to this season. LSL: In your opinion, what changed...Continue reading »
