Photo – vikings.com We all heard the constant bashing of him after his bad pro day, but in typical Teddy fashion, he’s been able to brush it off and start fresh.  In just over a week, he’s impressed not only his coaches, but Minnesota GM Rick Spielman as well.  He might not cause the media frenzy Johnny Football does, but ESPN.com writes that he has both the skill and the intangibles to be more successful in the NFL than No.3 pick Blake Bortles and the 22nd selection Manziel. Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater...Continue reading »

Photo – vikings.com Teddy impressed the Vikings coaching staff during his first full week in Minnesota and wasted little time signing his first NFL contract.  The terms of the deal are 4 years – with an option for another year – for $4.85 million in addition to a $3.3 million signing bonus. Coach Mike Zimmer said last week that Bridgewater will take some first-team snaps during the team’s organized training activities. But Zimmer, who is in his first year as coach, also said he doesn’t have a depth chart yet...Continue reading »

Photo – AP According to the 247Sports database, UofL has offered a whopping 278 prospects across 27 states.  Last week, the staff offered 10 players from the same high school in Dallas after offering 9 athletes on the same squad in Louisiana the week before.  When you hear of multiple offers going out to players on the same team, it’s generally two – maybe three – prospects at a time.  However, Coach Petrino’s staff has taken a much different approach in which an assistant coach goes out to evaluate a practice...Continue reading »

(Photo – USATSI) As we mentioned last week, the Louisville football program is eying a pair of elite SEC transfers. Former Georgia Defensive Back Shaq Wiggins and former Texas A&M Wide Receiver JaQuay Williams both decided to leave their respective schools and are now strongly considering the Cardinals. In what could prove to be a huge step towards gaining a commitment, both Williams and Wiggins will be on campus today visiting the program. Wiggins, 5-10, 175 lbs, who played under Todd Grantham at UGA last season (as well as alongside...Continue reading »

(Frank Victores / USA Today) With the Draft just over a month away, all 30 NBA franchises are beginning to do individual workouts with available players. Louisville’s Russ Smith, who appears anywhere from 31st to 50th in most of the Mock’s we’ve seen, is busy meeting with a multitude of teams himself. According to the CJ’s Jeff Greer (and Russ’ father), Smith has now worked out for The Cleveland Cavaliers and is scheduled to meet with the Memphis Grizzlies, Boston Celtics and Phoenix Suns over the next several...Continue reading »

Photo – AP *Another 2015 4-star PG is a target for Pitino and Co. New U of L assistant coach Kenny Johnson has been in regular contact with Adams the past several weeks since watching him at last month’s adidas event in Dallas. Johnson has liked him since he was on the staff at Indiana University, where he helped recruit Mass Rivals standout Noah Vonleh, and Johnson put Adams on the Cardinals’ radar after switching jobs. “I was definitely happy,” he said. “That’s always a big-name school, and I always...Continue reading »

Photo – AP *A look at Todd Grantham’s defensive secondary this past season and how he left UGA. In 2013, the Georgia secondary ranked ninth in the SEC in passing yardage allowed. Sometimes stats don’t tell the whole story and in this case those stats might even have made the Bulldogs secondary sound better than it was. In fairness, the secondary for Georgia was extremely young in 2013 and we saw this from the very beginning of the season as the Bulldogs started two true freshmen (Tray Matthews and Brendan Langley) in the secondary...Continue reading »

Our friends to the east really know how to make a name for themselves.  Whether it be setting couches on fire, creating another redneck t-shirt, or not having a full set of teeth, BBN loves to make us laugh.  Collegespun.com released their 2014 rankings of the 10 “Most Delusional Fan Bases in College Sports” and to nobody’s surprise, Cayuts’ hoops fans made the list, settling in at #2. Literally every year, their fans believe that the Wildcats will win it all; starting all freshmen or not. That’s just not possible,...Continue reading »

Photo – AP It doesn’t get quite the fanfare that the NFL Combine does, but the NBA Combine gives several players a chance to improve their draft stock.  Louisville legend Russ Smith took full advantage during the two day showcase in Chicago.  Russ finished 4th in the “off the dribble shooting” drill and 8th in the “off the move shooting” test.  Currently, Smith is projected to be the 48th pick in June’s draft.  After his combine performance, his stock should improve.
