Scroll to Top has released their preseason college basketball top 25 (and one) poll and the University of Louisville basketball Cards are ranked #2. Kentucky is #1, and rounding out the top 10 are Michigan State (#3), Duke (#4), Arizona (#5), Kansas (#6), Oklahoma State (#7), Ohio State (#8), Syracuse (#9), and North Carolina (#10). Louisville has a legitimate shot to be ranked number one when the polls are released later this month but you can’t argue with CBS Sports’ #2 ranking as the Cards are expected to be ranked in the top...Continue reading »

Photo – In an expected move, UofL pushed back the return game in Huntington until September 24, 2016.  It was originally supposed to be played on September 27th of next year, but with Louisville’s move to the ACC, an additional home game was needed.  As of now, the Cards are expected to keep their road game with FIU on September 20, 2014 because of recruiting targets in the Miami area.  This move now assures UofL that they will have 6 home games for the 2014 season.  Here’s how the schedule currently looks: HOME:...Continue reading »

I mean, you can’t make this stuff up. I’m sorry if it sounds like I’m bitching here and God knows I love this school more than anyone, but really? A red-out? Ya know, otherwise known as every other home game of the year. Ok, let me back up…..In case you haven’t heard, the University of Louisville has announced that they want fans to deck themselves out in their favorite blood-colored attire for Friday night’s nationally televised match-up against UCF. The Knights are 4-1 with their lone loss coming at home...Continue reading »

  After another sensational performance on Thursday night against Rutgers, Louisville junior safety Calvin Pryor has been named the American Athletic Conference’s Defensive Player of the Week. Pryor was a one-man wrecking ball against the Scarlet Knights en route to racking up a game-high 14 tackles and recording a crucial 4th quarter interception. Pryor helped the Louisville defense to a dominating 24-10 win in which they allowed 240 yards of total offense, including just 12 (yards) on the ground. Earlier today during his weekly...Continue reading »

(Photo –   The 2013-2014 Louisville men’s hoops team once again took to the floor inside the KFC Yum! Center on Saturday afternoon for the second of three intrasquad scrimmages. Split into what appeared to be two very evenly matched squads, the red team, led by junior college transfer Chris Jones, out-dueled the white squad and held off a late rally to win 70-65. I missed the first scrimmage and lived it vicariously through Twitter but now after seeing this team with my own two eyes, I can see why a lot of people...Continue reading »

Photo  – LSL got a chance to sit down with Kevin Ware at Media Day and give us an update on his status. LSL: How are you feeling? KW: I feel good, I feel good.  My leg is getting a lot stronger and I’m getting more confident. I am able to shoot and jump and ready to get out there. LSL: Coach Pitino said that you will be dressing out for the first game of the season against Charleston.  Do you expect to play? KW: Oh yeah.  If I can play I will play.  I am constantly working out trying to get my legs stronger and...Continue reading »

Photo – We all know what Gorgs is about.  The way he plays, the way he carries himself on and off the court, and the quirky things he says.  Now, the good folks in Minnesota are experiencing Gorgui up close and seeing what he brings to the table.  Not surprising knowing the player – and person – Dieng is. “He’s a smart player,” Adelman said. “It doesn’t take long watching him to see that he knows how to play.” Dieng is just 23 and didn’t seriously start playing the game until he was a teenager, but...Continue reading »

(Photo – Jamie Rhodes, USA Today)   More great work from Mike Lindsay, aka CrumsRevenge, as he dials up an outstanding highlight reel from Louisville’s 24-10 win over Rutgers. VN:F [1.9.22_1171]please wait...Rating: 10.0/10 (1 vote cast)...

Helped by teams who didn’t do what Louisville did this week – win – the Cards found themselves 6th in the Coaches Poll.  Something that will surely help them in the BCS rankings (provided they beat UCF) when they are released next weekend. Louisville’s win over Rutgers didn’t impress the voters in the AP as they moved LSU and Texas A&M ahead of the Cards.  Moving the Tigers ahead of UofL wasn’t a shock, but the Aggies move certainly was.  They struggled to beat an average team on the road and Louisville...Continue reading »

The basketball program held their annual media day yesterday, and from speaking with the players, it’s evident that their focus is on repeating as national champions. *Wayne knows that a lot is expected of him this year and he used this offseason to prepare for his increased role. *Kevin is tired of the media portraying him as “the guy who broke his leg”.  He wants to be known as a basketball player again. *Coach Pitino is taking it slow with Luke’s injury.  Hancock feels good, but he isn’t rushing it.  There...Continue reading »
