Rick Pitino and the Louisville staff have not held back when it comes to seeking commitments from talented wing players. Louisville already has a commitment from top 15 SG/SF Shaqquan Aaron, but prospects like Jaquan Lyle, Brandone Francis, Rashad Vaughn, and Dante Exum are still being heavily recruited by the Louisville staff. One name to add to that list now is Kelly Oubre. Oubre is a 6’7 wing from Richmond, Texas. According to 247sports, Louisville’s Wyking Jones is the staff member taking point in Oubre’s recruitment, and we know that Jones has...Continue reading »

  Now following on Twitter: Tim Brando. Not because I particularly care about him or like his daily radio or TV shows, but because his life is about to be turned upside down by angry southeastern-based college football fans. In case you haven’t heard or seen by now, Brando, one of CBS’ studio mainstays in college football for well over 20 years now, announced on his radio show earlier today that he predicts Louisville will defeat Ohio State in the BCS Championship game. Not Alabama, not LSU, not Texas A&M, but Louisville. He then stood firm with...Continue reading »

Photo – CBS Sports   The University of Louisville has made no secret about the fact that JaQuan Lyle, the 6’5 silky-smooth combo guard from Evansville, Indiana, has been their top recruiting target for the 2014 class. Last night at the NBPA Camp in Charlottesville, Va., Lyle reciprocated the love. While he was originally supposed to trim his list of schools to four on Wednesday afternoon via Twitter, he and his family decided to delay the announcement. But after a strong showing last night, surrounded by recruiting analysts and reporters, Lyle officially...Continue reading »

First it was billboards plastered all over the city and then it was twitter smack directed at UofL in some capacity from what seemingly is every UK football recruit who committed to play for them.  UK’s football program is like the annoying cousin at family gatherings nobody likes that continues talking to you while you are occupied doing something else; they don’t know when to stop. However, UK commit Denzel Ware took the smack game to an entirely new and disrespecting level by tweeting a picture of his conversation with UofL WR Coach Ron Dugans.  Check...Continue reading »

photo – @restivotommy adidas has made a name for themselves.  Whether it be by designing some rather odd uniforms, i.e infrareds or their Houston Astro-like baseball jerseys, people are talking about them.  But perhaps most importantly, their teams are representing in the postseason.  adidas accounts for only 20% of the the power conference teams (13 out of 65)* yet the three stripes shoe company finds their teams in the thick of it all during the postseason across a wide range of sports.  Let’s take the “big three” so to speak; football,...Continue reading »

  Photo – SB Nation   The Louisville coaching staff extended a scholarship offer to Dominican native Brandone Francis back in May and since then they’ve turned up the heat and have made him a top priority in the 2014 class. While the Cards are also recruiting another similar style combo guard in JaQuan Lyle, Francis told multiple reporters today at the NBPA Camp that Louisville and Florida are recruiting him the hardest and that both schools are definitely in his top-5. Apparently Francis is also going to make his decision at the end of the summer...Continue reading »

photo – scout.com   Business First reported that Old Cardinal Stadium is on its last leg and needs to be repaired as soon as as possible or “taken out of service.”  Since UofL football moved to PJCS, the former home of the Cards and the triple-A Louisville Redbirds has been used only for state fair concerts.  This year, it’s in such bad shape, concertgoers will have to watch the show on the field rather than the stands because of the deteriorating nature  of the structure.  While it was never the best in terms of facilities, the old Cardinal...Continue reading »

photo – blogs.dallasobserver.com Berry Tramel, a guest on LSL and staunch supporter of UofL, writes (again) how the Big 12′s inaction cost that league the nation’s hottest program.  What’s most surprising is that he mentioned that Texas’ beat reporter said that UT AD DeLoss Dodds tried to persuade Big 12 members to add Louisville. Hmmm, not sure I buy that. And the Big 12 would have gotten one of the nation’s best athletic programs. This academic year, Louisville has beaten Florida in the Sugar Bowl, won the NCAA men’s basketball title,...Continue reading »

photo – news4jax.com Sporting News’ preseason lists continue to the shooting guards, and to nobody’s surprise, Russ Smith is well represented at #2.  He, of course, could make the case to be at the very top, but the national champ begins the next season at number two. There is no one in college basketball quite like Russ Smith. It’s quite possible there’s never been anyone like him: from two-star recruit to All-American, from “Russdiculous” mental errors to NCAA Tournament heroism. Though he is not a great shooter, he is a great shooting guard....Continue reading »

Photo – NY Daily News   College football guru Phil Steele has been in the process of counting down his top-40 preseason teams (one team each day) as we head into the summer lull before practice starts. Today he revealed his #7 team and it’s none other than your Louisville Cardinals. If memory serves correct, this is the second-highest preseason distinction the Cards have received (ESPN’s Mark Schlabach pegged Louisville 4th in his preseason poll last month). Steele, revered for his insane attention to detail and in-depth analysis, marvels at Teddy...Continue reading »
