The report states that Mathiang was walking home from Churchill Downs with a friend who, for whatever reason, drew the attention of the cops and was ultimately arrested first (the report doesn’t state why). Mathiang was then warned several times to quote, “walk the other way,” in order to avoid further incident, but he refused and kept walking...Continue reading »

  (Photo – Getty Images) The 2014 NFL draft is less than a week away. Experts will be releasing their final mock drafts, draft boards, and analysis on how the prospects will be selected. While some have an idea of how the first round will go, there’s still some uncertainty heading into the stretch run. In the meantime, however, Dane Brugler of CBS Sports released his final top-100 draft board this morning and he has Teddy Bridgewater listed as the #1 prospect. 1. Teddy Bridgewater QB, Louisville (6-2, 214, 4.67, JR) While...Continue reading »

(Photo – UofL Athletics) Well, so far we knew that Louisville had put together perhaps its most difficult schedule of all time for the 2014-2015 season, but today things just got a little crazier. The Cards are already slated to play Duke, North Carolina (twice), Virginia (twice), Syracuse, Notre Dame, Pitt  and the rest of the rather daunting ACC, as well as out-of-conference foes Kentucky, Indiana, Minnesota and Western Kentucky. But now news has come down that Louisville will play Ohio State in the KFC Yum! Center as part of the...Continue reading »

The SEC has decided to stay at an 8-game conference schedule with the stipulation that they add a non-league game against a Big 5 Power Conference. Now the ACC is having similar discussions, but the 800-pound gorilla in the room is Notre Dame. When the ACC and Notre Dame signed an agreement to have them as the conference’s 15th member in all sports save football, a deal was struck for Notre Dame to play 5 ACC teams per year in an attempt to bolster the league’s out of conference strength of schedule. Andrea Adelson discusses the...Continue reading »

(Photo – Mathew Wickham) Sports Illustrated has counted down its top 64 available players leading into the 2014 NFL Draft and today they found their way to their Number 1 prospect, Teddy Bridgewater. Lately it seems like every time you turn on the TV or read an article on the upcoming draft, the “experts” have Teddy sliding down in the first round or even moving to the second round. Whether it’s Mel Kiper, who still has Teddy as his top QB, or NFL Network’s Mike Mayock, who thinks Teddy shouldn’t have a...Continue reading »

(Photo – Joe Robbins/Getty Images) Somewhere between the 2014 Russell Athletic Bowl and now, being arguably the best quarterback in college football was no longer good enough for former Louisville star Teddy Bridgewater. Nor was his grit, his intelligence, or his clutch play in big games. How he plays the actual game of football no longer has any meaning, or at least this seems to be the opinion of a number of NFL scouts and analysts. No, now the only things that should matter to teams drafting a QB are physical measurements and...Continue reading »

  While almost the entire offense, as well as the defensive line and linebacking corps remain strong for Louisville heading into the 2014 season, the one question mark (the secondary) just got a little more help. Bobby Petrino and his staff just made things official by signing San Mateo Community College cornerback Isaac Watson. Standing at 6’2, 225 lbs, Watson will have two years of eligibility remaining and will likely compete for a spot in the rotation immediately this fall. A teammate of recent Louisville defensive end signee...Continue reading »

  There is a story on ESPN’s ACC Blog  about the mixed opinions between AD’s of the ACC on the future of ACC scheduling. Recently at ACC meetings it was discussed as a topic to be put front and center in a couple of weeks at the annual Spring ACC meetings in Amelia Island, Florida. Wake Forest athletic director Ron Wellman is ready for a vote — again.  After years of flip-flopping between an eight- or nine-game league schedule, the topic is once again up for debate as the ACC athletic directors, coaches and administrators...Continue reading »

(Photo – bleacherreport.com) Over at ESPN’s ACC Blog, Andrea Adelson has a write up about UofL’s Spring practice for 2014. She talks about what players emerged, what questions still need to be addressed, and what we could expect from UofL in its first season in the ACC. Three things we learned in the spring about the Louisville Cardinals:  Will Gardner emerges at QB. Teddy Bridgewater leaves behind big shoes to fill, and now it falls to Gardner to pick up where he left off. Gardner emerged as the starter this spring,...Continue reading »

Photo – AP If you search through the internet and channel surf on television, chances are you will see something negative pertaining to Teddy Bridgewater and the NFL Draft.  It seems as though the Teddy we’ve all seen perform at a high level is no longer worthy of a first round pick all because of an off pro day.  But lo and behold, there is actually a positive story from the national perspective on the Louisville legend. What’s even sillier about all this is Bridgewater had lots of decision-making responsibility at the...Continue reading »

(Photo – Streeter Lecka / Getty Images) After a report from Adam Zagoria surfaced last week stating that Chane Behanan was going to bypass college and go pro, the former Louisville forward quickly tried to smash the rumors and publicly stated that he wasn’t sure what he was going to do. His new coach at Colorado State, Larry Eustachy issued a vague response to the rumors and essentially left the door wide open for either option. Then, a few days later in an interview with the Denver Post, Eustachy retracted some of that ambiguity...Continue reading »
