The ACC wasted little time in making news at their spring meetings when they announced that the league will remain at 8 league games.  Commissioner John Swofford added that everyone will keep their annual crossover opponent as well (that is Virginia for the Cards).  Like the SEC, the ACC mandated that each school must play a power-5 conference team or Notre Dame each season.  Once every three years, per the Irish’s scheduling agreement with the ACC, UofL will exceed that mandate since they will play Notre Dame in addition to UK from...Continue reading »

After selecting Teddy Bridgewater with the 32nd pick in the 2014 NFL draft, the Minnesota Vikings added depth at the quarterback position. The Vikings already had two quarterbacks before picking Bridgewater but, again, they needed help at the position. Christian Ponder, whom the Vikings selected three years ago, may have taken his final snaps in Minnesota and will most likely be a free agent after the 2015 season. The other quarterback on the roster, Matt Cassel, played better than Ponder down the stretch last season. Today, reading »

As the ACC spring meetings get underway today in Florida, there area several items on the league’s agenda.  One being  the decision on whether to stay at eight conference games or increase to 9.  With Notre Dame cycling through the league playing every ACC team in three-year spans, the need for nine games isn’t as great. Maintaining an eight-game scheduling model for ACC football has significant support entering a vote of league athletic directors this week in Amelia Island, Fla., several sources told “Momentum...Continue reading »

When it arrived in New York, the frame was reportedly cracked, at which time the family followed protocol and returned the damaged item back...Continue reading »

Garrick McGee left Louisiana on Friday morning for Parts Unknown.

(Photo – Craig Ruttle / Associated Press) It was the greatest night in the history of the program. Oh wait, this isn’t UK basketball. Apologies to The Squid and all those hoops first rounders from Lexington. Anyway, in all seriousness, I think we can agree that what occurred last night was pretty spectacular. Louisville tied Texas A&M with the most first round draft picks (three) and sent a clear message to the NFL that they can recruit and develop talent with the best of them. Plenty more reaction to come, but here’s...Continue reading »

Photo – AP Two more Teddy tidbits before tonight’s draft…. -Props to Amy Trask and Jason La Canfora for calling out Bridgewater’s haters and giving him the respect he has earned. Over the past month he’s been torn to shreds — and, as CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora wrote Wednesday, has handled it admirably — with the latest anonymous criticism being that he’s not a good “face of the franchise.” CBS Sports analyst and former Raiders CEO Amy Trask doesn’t appreciate that sentiment...Continue reading »

    The day has finally arrived.  The mock drafts have stopped coming out and the speculation is winding down.  Louisville’s Teddy Bridgewater figures to be in the middle of the drama – through no fault of his own – and where he’ll end up landing is anyone’s guess.  Teddy has shown that he is a sure-fire first round talent by his play at UofL, but will the NFL personnel embrace that or harken back to his sub-par pro day?  Based on several mock drafts over the recent weeks, UofL can expect to have...Continue reading »
