Photo – USA TODAY Whenever we get together with our buddies watching games or talking sports in general, one subject is always sure to come up – officiating.  Most of the time when it’s brought up in conversation it’s an excuse.  Rarely it can be a cause that decides an outcome of the game.  On Saturday, all three referees – Tony Greene, Doug Sirmons, and Mark Whitehead – working the game in Lexington called a game in the 2013 Final Four.  Greene made the controversial call on Trey Burke’s block...Continue reading »

The game is just two days away (like you didn’t know that) and that alone gives you more reason to make fun of our “friends” to the east.  Mullets, jean shorts, and missing teeth; Big Blue Nation always provides us with jokes that write themselves. Seriously, do us all a favor and cover it up. What’s worse, the overalls or the visor-wig combo? Now this pic looks like it was snapped a few years ago, but it is never cool to wear jean (or short) shorts, let alone carve a ‘K’ with your chest hair. A line...Continue reading »

Photo – @ULFlyingCard Louisville football’s recipe for success has been recruiting Florida and winning games.  A win against Miami  in the Russell Athletic Bowl would be another feather in the cap of the Cards as far as making noise in Florida.  Current Cards from Florida include Bridgewater, Rogers, Copeland, Gaines; the list goes on and on.  In all, there are 39 players from the Sunshine state on the roster.  However, the Cards have gotten Florida kids’ attention by beating the major powers.  Florida State in 2002,...Continue reading »

Well first off I’d like to wish everybody the merriest Christmas possible especially our loyal fans, Twitter followers, Facebook likers and listeners of the radio show and since it’s Christmas and many of you are with your families and probably gorging yourselves on ham, cookies and cakes I’ll keep this short and sweet just like that mouthful of bourbon balls you just shoveled in. When it comes to the number three and Louisville Cardinal basketball I think most people will agree that Peyton Siva comes to mind first. Siva came...Continue reading »

Photo – Shane Stovall (LSL wishes you a Merry Christmas and thanks you for your continued support.) *Charlie Strong and Co. making Florida a priority. The decision to leave the Miami area for Louisville was an easy one for junior wide receiver Eli Rogers after listening to coach Charlie Strong during his recruitment. “He sold me on the family and the brotherhood that’s here,” Rogers said. “These are some great coaches. They care more about you off the field than they do on the field.” Other Florida players have been listening...Continue reading »

Here’s a few football stories as you relax on Christmas Eve…. *The Cards began Russell Athletic Bowl preparations on Monday Having defeated the Hurricanes only once in school history, the Cardinals are anxious about taking on a program with so much tradition, and also one they will face when UofL moves into the ACC next season. “We are playing a quality opponent,” Strong said. “We are playing an opponent that now we are going to see on our schedule in the ACC next season. It’s going to be a measuring stick...Continue reading »

Another day gone and another step closer. Four days from the big showdown’s so here’s a brief look at some famous alum that wore No.4 In the round ball you have to automatically think of Lancaster Gordon.There’s been a few other guys that were really good that wore number four like Tick Rogers, David Padgett and Derwin Webb but Gordon sticks out the most to me. Gordon ranks just two spots behind yesterday’s centerpiece Taquan Dean, at 14th all-time in scoring at UofL with 1,614 points, an average for his career of 12...Continue reading »

I started this countdown thing to make the last nine days go by faster and to educate readers on some things about current and former Cardinal greats that they might not have known about. Well,  I gotta say that the going by faster thing isn’t really working with me as it still seems like the day will never get here but at least I’ve been told by a few that they appreciated the info I’m putting out so I’ll call it a success. Enough about me, on with the countdown and the “Fantastic Fives”. Was there ever...Continue reading »

Photo – si.cnn.com It’s Monday of Louisville-Kentucky week so you can officially cue the smack talk.  A couple of weeks ago Kevin Ware told the assembled media that, “we don’t care that Kentucky exists.”  And for the majority of the Louisville players that’s true because they aren’t from the Commonwealth.  You could question if that statement was really smack talk or not.  After UK’s win over Belmont, freshman standout Julius Randle was asked about the ‘Dream Game’ and offered...Continue reading »

The big games are now just six days away so I continue my countdown with a current Cardinal football player that wears No.6 and a former footballer that wore No.6. I am covering two football players instead of one football and one basketball due to the fact that like the No.7, only one player, Herb Harrah, has ever worn the six jersey for the Cardinals. Harrah was sub on the 1955-56 NIT Championship team along with the previously mentioned Charlie Tyra and Dick Keffer. Currently, Eli Rogers is wearing the No.6 for the Cards, a switch from...Continue reading »
