 (Photo – It was announced earlier in the week that USC junior-to-be QB Max Wittek had opted to transfer from the school. He is eligible to graduate in the spring and plans to do just that, which will allow him to play immediately wherever he chooses to transfer. Could Louisville be among the schools he will consider? According to the USC blog Reign of Troy, it makes sense. Louisville Cardinals: In a trend with Fresno State and San Jose State, the Cards are having to replace an NFL arm in Teddy Bridgewater.
