  (Photo — 247 Sports) Louisville received its third commitment for the class of 2015 as Hiram, Georgia linebacker Jonathan Greenard gave his pledge to the Cards yesterday. The 6-4, 220 pound Greenard knew he wanted to go to Louisville before he attended the Cards camp on Sunday and the visit this weekend simply sealed the deal. Greenard, a three-star recruit, is rated as the #83 outside linebacker nationally by 247 Sports and the 110th best prospect in Georgia. His offer sheet included Kentucky, Miami (Ohio), Middle Tennessee State,...Continue reading »

Former University of Louisville sacks leader Marcus Smith has signed a four-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles. Smith was one of three Cards, along with Teddy Bridgewater and Calvin Pryor, selected in the first-round, going 19th overall. It took a while for the two sides to reach an agreement but that was due to figuring out the money for the fifth year, which is a team option for first-round draft selections under the NFL’s new collective bargaining agreement. Here’s the full blog post from the Philadelphia Inquirer. The...Continue reading »

photo – @NCAA The Louisville Cardinals will meet a familiar foe when they open play in Omaha this weekend.  UofL (50-15) will meet their Nashville nemesis, Vanderbilt (46-19) on Saturday at 8:00 on ESPN2.  The Cards played – and beat – the ‘Dores back on May 6 in Nashville 11-7.  That game came after UofL eliminated VU last May in the Super Regional.  The entire CWS bracket will be finalized tonight because there are three elimination games left to be played.  However, the Cards’ half of the bracket is set,...Continue reading »

Photo – 247sports *So much for a quiet offseason.  WR James Quick was cited for possession of marijuana (along with UK’s Jason Hatcher) and drug paraphernalia last month. The report says both Hatcher and Quick were compliant with U of L police officers when they asked to search the apartment. Officers also noted jars in the apartment with marijuana buds and roaches. Quick and Hatcher, both 19, have court dates set for this summer. Hatcher’s is June 23; Quick’s is July 7. Possession of marijuana and possession of drug...Continue reading »

Photo – @GoCards For the second straight year, your Louisville Cardinals are going to the College World Series.  UofL once again came back on Kennesaw State (40-24), who led 4-2 after 3 innings of play.  In front of a record crowd of 6,007, UofL starter Anthony Kidson got the win for the Cards to go 9-0 on the season after going 6 innings, giving up 9 hits, 4 runs, and striking out 7.  At the plate, Louisville (50-15) got a boost from – you guessed it – Nick Solak, who blasted a two-run shot to left field to put the Cards...Continue reading »

While Smith and junior Chris Jones played the majority of minutes, the team was statistically better when Rozier, and not Jones, was on the court....Continue reading »

Photo – @GoCards In the new era of power conferences and billion dollar television contracts, the amount of revenue college athletics bring in is tracked  closer than ever.  In the latest findings from USA TODAY, Louisville ranks 18th nationally, bringing in $96,193,330.  That figure is first in the ACC, as Florida State is the next school in that conference at 24th.  There are six items that are tallied to get the final total; ticket sales, contributions, licensing, student fees, school funds, and other.  UofL’s $96.1 million...Continue reading »

Photo – It seems to go hand-in-hand.  UofL basketball legends – whether they are from Louisville or not – always seem to give back to our community after their days in the the read and black are over.  Siva, who grew up in Seattle, now calls Louisville home in the off-season.  Luke Hancock is training out of Indianapolis, but he still spends a considerable amount of time in the Derby City.  Russ Smith has been traveling non-stop, so there’s no telling where his permanent residence is.  Larry O’Bannon...Continue reading »

Isaiah Briscoe, a top target for the U of L basketball team, plans to cut his list to eight schools later this month, according to his father George Briscoe. Briscoe, who helped the Playaz Basketball Club go 13-3 in the Nike EYBL circuit in April and May, will reportedly head to the USA Basketball U18 tryouts next week in Colorado Springs. If he makes the team the 5-star point guard could be busy through June 24th, assuming the USA team makes it to the championship round. The tournament takes place June 20-24. If that happens, Briscoe likely...Continue reading »

(Photo – USA Today) Teddy Bridgewater has had no shortage of impressive moments during his brief stint in Minnesota. The 32nd pick of the draft has caught the attention of his coaching staff and teammates by putting in tons of time learning the playbook and showing an innate ability to absorb information on and off the field. He’ll likely face an uphill battle to become the Vikings starter on day one of the 2014 season due to the presence of veterans Matt Cassel and Christian Ponder. However, as Ben Goessling of ESPN points out,...Continue reading »
