Matt Osborne writes that if things break the right way for Gardner under the direction of UofL Head Coach Bobby Petrino, it could be a special season for Gardner and the Cardinals in 2014: If you believe in the validity of trends, then the safe bet would be to say that a relatively unknown player will walk away with the Heisman Trophy at the conclusion of the 2014 regular season.

(IU assistant Kenny Johnson: Photo – Daniel Martin) After a few weeks of rumor and innuendo, Kevin Keatts’ former assistant spot remains vacant on the UofL basketball sidelines. Keatts, who helped Louisville get to back-to-back Final Fours, win a National Championship and grab three straight conference tournament titles, left the program last month to accept the head coaching position at UNC Wilmington.

Photo – Andrea Adelson published a must-read piece on Teddy, defending the former Louisville QB in the midst of his seemingly falling draft stock.  She caught up Shawn Watson, who used some common sense to explain the type of player Bridgewater is.  Sure, some of the nonsense being talking about Teddy is posturing by some GMs in an attempt to throw off teams who are potentially interested in Teddy so that they could scoop him up.  But, some mocks projected him to go in the second round, and that’s asinine. ...Continue reading »

(Photo – ESPN’s Brett McMurphy reported today that Louisville signed a 5-year extension with adidas worth $39 million.  That deal is the third richest in all of college athletics next to Notre Dame’s $9 million annual contract with Under Armour and Michigan’s $8.2 with adidas.

Will Gardner, Louisville (SO) Replacing Teddy Bridgewater is a difficult task for any quarterback, but it appears the Cardinals are in good shape under center with Gardner.

Without question, one of the weaknesses for the U of L football team is the secondary. After losing Calvin Pryor and Hakeem Smith, the Cards are looking for playmakers at the safety position. And today, that safety position just got a little better with the addition of former Washington Huskies stud James Sample. Sample, a former 4-star recruit out of Grant High School, brings talent, size, and experience to the U of L secondary instantly. More importantly, his addition adds much-needed depth to a position of need. Last year, Sample attended...Continue reading »

(Photo – Miami Herald)   Andrea Adelson of’s ACC Blog discusses the expectations on DeVante Parker, UofL’s star receiver going into the 2014 season. Parker decided to forgo the NFL draft, so he’s poised to have a huge senior season under new head coach Bobby Petrino. It has been seven years since Louisville had a 1,000-yard receiver. Not coincidentally, that player — Harry Douglas — was a product of the Bobby Petrino system. So now that Petrino is back, expectations are rising for senior DeVante...Continue reading »
