Earlier today the writers at CBS ranked the ACC for the upcoming season. As expected, it is the usual teams at the top for the 6 writers that participated. Duke came in as the favorite for 4 of the 6 writers, but Louisville was voted the favorite by Jon Rothstein. The other first place vote went to North Carolina by Doug Gottlieb. Also Mr. Gottlieb picked Louisville to finish 4th, behind everyone else’s third place predictions. I don’t think I have ever seen him pick Louisville to win so this is not a surprise. If you want to view...Continue reading »

LSL caught up with Chris during Media Day to get the latest on his improvement and what he thinks this team is capable of this year. LSL: Everyone has said that since you lost some weight that you’ve much harder to guard.  What’s one thing you’ve noticed about yourself the most since losing the weight? CJ: I think me being quicker.  I was already strong, so it’s harder to stay in front of me.  I think another thing is just me listening to Coach about it.  I tried to fight it last year.  It became a good thing,...Continue reading »

  Louisville coach Bobby Petrino tinkered with his lineup Saturday vs. NC State, inserting three new players into the starting offense, and what resulted was an efficient and disciplined offensive performance unlike any other performance Louisville has had this season. The Cards not only welcomed back star WR DeVante Parker, but a healthy Michael Dyer got his first start at RB, and redshirt junior Aaron Epps replaced a struggling Ryan Mack at right tackle on the starting offensive line. It was the first time each of the three players...Continue reading »

LSL caught up with UofL All-American Montrezl Harrell to get his take on the upcoming season and the leadership role he plays. LSL: It seemed that when you first set foot on campus you were a vocal leader.  Entering your junior year you are the leader.  How have you grown into that role through your three years here? MH: Throughout my three years I’ve had the chance to be around a lot of great leaders here and a lot of great people.  Peyton taught me  the right way of how to carry myself on and off the court.  Gorgui taught me my...Continue reading »

With the first of two scrimmages and Media Day complete, there’s a ton to takeaway from Sunday’s activities.  Here’s what we can tell you after talking with the 2014-15 Cards…. *Trez has embraced the leadership role.  He learned a lot about that quality from Peyton Siva and Gorgui Dieng and is helping out whenever the opportunity presents itself.  In the scrimmage he was praising his teammates when they made plays and coaching them up when they made mistakes.  His fire and intensity remains unmatched.. *Terry Rozier...Continue reading »

*Two offensive play makers who have been silent this year both emerged on the same day as Michale Dyer ran for 173 yards on 24 carries and a TD while DeVante Parker caught 9 passes for 132 yards.  Welcome guys. *Will Gardner missed on some throws, but overall played a solid ball game going 21-36 for 203 yards with 2 TDs.  Perhaps more importantly, zero turnovers from him and the offense as a unit. *Eli Rogers and Kai De La Cruz both caught touchdown passes. *The offense didn’t really impress – outside of their first drive –...Continue reading »

Three of the four former UofL players who were drafted in last May’s NFL Draft have made their way into starting roles already this season.  Two of them – Minnesota’s Teddy Bridgewater and Buffalo’s Preston Brown – will battle it out on opposite sidelines.  You have to wonder….if Brown had a clear shot to sack Teddy, would Preston ease up and not hit him with as much force as he would a regular foe?  Tune in at 1:00 on Sunday to find out.  Brown is the Bills’ leading tackler with 45 stops, while...Continue reading »
