Dennis Petrullo, the arena’s general manager and an employee of Los Angeles-based...Continue reading »

He’s a brutal, punishing player whose talent only comes along once every 6 or 7 years. Many of those same draft boards have Louisville’s Teddy Bridgewater going high in the first round as well, often as the first QB taken. But Vinnie Iyer of The Sporting News took things a step further yesterday by releasing this column in which he outlines the reasons why Bridgewater should...Continue reading »

  Earlier this year, Athlon Sports compiled a comprehensive list of the best coaching jobs in America and it ranked every D-1 school from 1 all the way to 125. Louisville checked in a respectable 29 and, if anything, their stock will only go up as they enter the season in the top-10 and are favorites to win their conference and get back to yet another BCS game.
