Since uniforms are in the news now more so than ever these days, it’s the perfect time to take a look back at Louisville football helmet’s history. From the days of ‘Red Rage’ to the multiple helmet schemes we currently see. Here’s a look at what the Cards have worn since 1960. NOTE: Louisville is listed with the AAC. Here is what Louisville has worn – or will wear – for the 2014 season. VN:F [1.9.22_1171]please wait...Rating: 10.0/10 (1 vote cast)...
When the financial earnings reports came out this summer for all the shoe companies, it showed adidas trailing not only Nike, but Under Armour as well. That message was received and now it appears adidas is on the offensive to change it as they’ve lured three of Nike’s top designers. On Wednesday, Adidas said it had hired Marc Dolce, Denis Dekovic and Mark Miner to work at a new shoe design studio in Brooklyn. Adidas has been struggling globally and in the U.S., losing market share to Nike and Under Armour. It’s now the...Continue reading »
After seeing the shot Will Gardner took that put him out of the game last weekend, it wasn’t a surprise that he wouldn’t be playing this Sat against Wake Forest. Following the emotional week that Reggie Bonnafon and the rest of his family endured, the last thing on his mind would be whether or not he’d get the starting nod. Fast forward to today and here we are; the hometown kid starting for the hometown school. The next two weeks are crucial for the remainder of the season. The Cards face opponents that they should...Continue reading »
The Louisville men’s basketball program has unveiled their new uniforms for the 2014-2015 season and the results are……shall we say……mixed? Twitter and Facebook just exploded with comments from UofL fans who appear to be split down the middle (as they were with the football uni’s that were just released for the Florida State game) when it comes to the team’s new look. In my opinion, the shorts look like a weird 80’s convergence of the old Cardinal bird head and the thick stripes of the...Continue reading »
Teddy makes his first NFL start on Sunday, and one thing’s for sure, his coaches are confident in his abilities. Head Coach Mike Zimmer and OC Norv Turner have heaped praise on him from the day his was drafted, and that trend has continued leading up to the Vikings game against the Falcons. The fact that the Bridgewater Era is beginning faster than anyone anticipated hasn’t fazed the Vikings coaches. And don’t be surprised if that confidence spills out into the team this weekend as they rally around the rookie from...Continue reading »
After what appears to be a highly successful in-home visit with 5-star Columbia, SC., shooting guard Perry Dozier, Rick Pitino and the Louisville Cardinals are right back in the mix. Pitino had quite a bit of ground to make up after the program essentially stopped recruiting Dozier a few weeks back, following the commitment of fellow 5-star recruit Antonio Blakeney. However, UofL’s head coach can be highly persuasive and, according to Steve Jones of the Courier Journal (who caught up with Dozier’s father, Perry Sr.), last...Continue reading »
It was confirmed to today that Vikings starting QB Matt Cassell will be out for the year. That means the Bridgewater era will begin a lot sooner than originally thought. It should come to no surprise that Teddy is welcoming the spot light because his dream of starting in the NFL is now realized. His teammates share his confidence because of watching him conduct his business on a daily basis in practice and in the film room. It’s Teddy Time. “We’ve seen him since OTAs and throughout the season so far,” center John Sullivan...Continue reading »
The C-J’s Jeff Greer graded the team through the first four games this year. (It’s hard to believe the season is already one-third complete). You’ll see that if he was a teacher, he’d be pretty fair. This is surprisingly the area of biggest concern for the Cardinals. Louisville’s pass protection is now its Achilles’ heel. Out of 128 FBS teams, U of L ranks 112th in the nation in tackles for loss allowed (28) and ranks 116th in sacks allowed, with 12 in four games. The U of L quarterbacks rate 69th in...Continue reading »
It’s much too early and they are only projections, but based on bowl prognostications after this past week, the Cards are slotted to play against big-time competition. CBS Sports projects UofL to play LSU in the Music City Bowl while ESPN has the same match-up – but in Jacksonville’s Tax Slayer Bowl – by one of their analysts and Louisville taking on Florida in Nashville. Either scenario would be good for Louisville and would serve as a great test before the 2015 season. VN:F [1.9.22_1171]please wait...Rating: 6.0/10...Continue reading »

From a public relations standpoint, The Minnesota Vikings have seen better days. First, special teams coach Mike Priefer was alleged to have made radically homophobic comments to former punter and gay rights activist Chris Kluwe and was suspended the first three games of the season. More recently, the face of the franchise, running back Adrian Peterson, has been indicted for child abuse following evidence he “disciplined” his four-year old son by repeatedly hitting him with a switch (and may have performed the same action...Continue reading »
At first glance, the box score of the FIU game will deceive you. Will Gardner’s numbers were solid, 16-28 passing for 295 yards with 2 TDs. What you didn’t see was him losing another fumble, missing open receivers, and taking sacks after holding onto the ball for too long. You have to give Gardner credit for the 74-yard pass to Quick who jostled with the defensive back for the ball and hit paydirt soon after regaining control. (On the other hand, Eli Rogers dropped a couple of passes that hit him squarely in the hands.) ...Continue reading »
