Preseason polls don’t mean much, but they do provide a platform for discussion among fans. One look at Lindy’s preseason publication and you’ll see the Louisville Cardinals NOT in the top 10 – which will of course spark up some debate. Generally, every poll/publication/website that has released a top 10 has the Cards somewhere between 7-9. I’ll listen to an argument not to place UofL in the top 10, but not when teams like Texas, Gonzaga, and Iowa State are ahead of them. The likelihood of Louisville going...Continue reading »
If you’re Will Gardner, forget about the size of Teddy’s shoes, because filling them isn’t something that can be done. However, the sophomore signal caller can make a name for himself right away on Monday night under the guidance of Bobby Petrino. The folks over at ESPN.com’s ACC blog predict he will do just that in saying that he will be the ACC’s second best QB this season. With the track record of successful quarterbacks Petrino has coached, it’s certainly not a stretch to state that Gardner can...Continue reading »
As the season creeps even closer, college outfitters adidas, Nike, and Under Armour have released their latest designs for the 2014 season. It has been well documented that Louisville will rock their black uniforms and helmets for the Miami game on Labor Day, but here’s a look at what everyone else will be wearing. This is a must see for any uniform junky…. There’s a new playoff system, some new conference assignments, and some new schools, but one thing hasn’t changed: College football teams are adding new uniforms...Continue reading »
Louisville’s 2015 recruiting class is shaping up to be perhaps the best of Rick Pitino’s tenure and he’s still not even finished. With three incredibly heralded commits already in the fold (Deng Adel, Donovan Mitchell and local product Ray Spalding), Pitino and his staff are set to host a pair of five star guards in Antonio Blakeney and Perry Dozier in the next two weeks. If they can land one of those two, they would surely vault to the top of the rankings and hold the keys to perhaps the best recruiting class in UofL...Continue reading »
After foregoing the NBA draft this past June, Louisville junior Montrezl Harrell came back to school to improve his game and help guide what should be another solid Cardinal team through its inaugural season in the ACC. Last year he was named to the American Athletic Conference’s All-1st Team and also garnered Associated Press All-American honorable mention status. Moving forward, you had to figure the accolades for 2014-2015 were going to come hard and fast and it appears that Blue Ribbon is the first to jump on board. The highly...Continue reading »

Earlier today we told you that Louisville freshman Jaylen Johnson’s name appeared at the registrar’s office and that he looked to be fully enrolled as a student. However, though now attending classes, he had still yet to be cleared officially to play basketball by the NCAA. That is until now. Right as we went on the air tonight for our radio show, Mike Hughes of Inside The Ville reported that Louisville Sports Information Director Kenny Klein informed him that Johnson had just been full cleared by the NCAA and was eligible...Continue reading »
(Photo – Rob Foldy, USA Today) The injury bug that has plagued multiple BCS football programs the past month has finally caught up with Louisville. Coach Bobby Petrino announced Monday afternoon that after seeing a specialist in Charlotte, NC, senior WR DeVante Parker, the Cards’ most valuable playmaker and arguably the team’s top draft prospect, will miss up to half the season with a broken left toe. The extent of the injury is not completely unexpected news, as any time a team sends out a press release on a late Friday...Continue reading »
As previously mentioned, Louisville head football coach Bobby Petrino met with the media today to discuss the team’s opener next Monday night against Miami.

At today’s weekly press conference, Louisville head coach Bobby Petrino handed out the team’s updated depth chart as they head into their season opener against Miami next Monday night. Not really a ton of surprises aside from Kai De La Cruz replacing DeVante Parker at the starting x-receiver and Keith Kelsey listed as the starter at middle linebacker over Keith Brown. Other notables: Reggie Bonnafon indeed grabbing the back-up QB role (Kyle Bolin wasn’t listed, which means he’s dropped to the 4th spot behind...Continue reading »
UofL head football coach Bobby Petrino held his game-week press conference today and handed down some very unfortunate news to Cardinal fans: star wide receiver DeVante Parker has broken a bone in his fifth metatarsal that will require surgery and keep him sidelined for at least 6 weeks. It’s a devastating blow to Louisville, who, although certainly deep at the receiver position, has absolutely no one of Parker’s caliber to replace him. A likely first round draft pick in 2015, Parker’s unique combination of size (6’3,...Continue reading »
It’s coming right down to the wire, but the last piece of Louisville’s heralded 2014 recruiting class appears to be falling into place. Jaylen Johnson, a 6’9, 4-star forward from Ypsilanti, Michigan has been awaiting clearance from the NCAA after his school district went through a merger with a neighboring town. The ensuing fallout caused his records to become delayed and the NCAA could not technically clear him. Nevertheless, all now looks to be in good order as the Courier Journal’s Jeff Greer reports that...Continue reading »
