Photo – AP *The UofL-UCF game made SI’s Top 25 games of 2013 11. UCF 38, Louisville 35 (Oct. 18) Before Blake Bortles and Storm Johnson were household names, they were the sparks of an upstart UCF squad that knocked off then-No. 8 Louisville, a team many assumed would cruise to an undefeated season in the weak AAC. Midway through the third quarter against the Knights, everything seemed to be falling into place for Teddy Bridgewater and the Cardinals, who led 28-7. However, UCF roared back with a rushing score from Johnson and two...Continue reading »

Photo – AP Georgia football fans are known to have outlandish expectations every off-season. Alabama and Florida fans make fun of them on an annual basis as the Bulldogs seemingly disappoint nearly every year.  Make no mistake, UGA is a national and SEC power, but Coach Richt and the Dawgs never seem to be good enough.  Take Todd Grantham for example.  UofL’s new DC was the toast of Athens until this past season.  Breaking in eight new starters and having to deal with multiple injuries in 2013 played a part in UGA’s defensive...Continue reading »

Photo – espn.go.com As we’ve mentioned on the radio show, we’ve tried just under a thousand several times  to get ACC Commissioner John Swofford on LSL.  It seems the ESPN.com’s ACC Blog has a little more pull than we do and was able to grab him for a few quotes.  Since Florida State won the national title and the ACC is as powerful a football league has its ever been, maybe he will now come on our show.  Anyway, UofL and the Petrino hire came up; here’s what he said…. Were you disappointed at all to...Continue reading »

Photo – Michael McCammon, cardinalauthority.com Coach Petrino introduced his new OC Garrick McGee today at a news conference at PJCS.  The two discussed their familiarity with one another and their offensive and recruiting philosophies.  Coach Petrino also mentioned that the team has held a couple of meetings and that the staff will soon hit the recruiting trail. Roster management is one of the biggest things Petrino has focused on since taking the job. He has been busy evaluating the current talent on the roster to see what areas...Continue reading »

(Photo – Getty Images) After splitting last week’s games, Louisville has dropped in both major polls this week. They fell 6 spots from #12 to #18 in the AP and 6 spots from #8 to #14 in the USA Today Coach’s poll. However, the next 7 days will present the team with a few more opportunities to impress the pollsters. The Cards will play at home against Houston on Thursday and then they have a quick turnaround playing at UConn Saturday evening. VN:F [1.9.22_1171]please wait...Rating: 5.5/10 (2 votes cast)...

(Photo – USA Today) Ok, it only took two months, but Louisville finally has its first quality win of the 2012-2013 season. Led by another dynamic performance from the trio of Luke Hancock, Russ Smith and Montrezl Harrell, the Cards took care of business at home against SMU, 71-63, in front of 21,756 fans. The victory takes Louisville’s record to 14-3 on the year and 3-1 in conference play. There’s still some areas that need some immediate attention (hello, rebounding) but for the most part, that was one of the better efforts...Continue reading »

Photo – AP *It wasn’t pretty (again) but the Cards slugged out a win against a stubborn SMU squad. *Luke Hancock scored a career-high 23 points and answered just about every SMU run with a big shot. *Russ Smith threw in 23 points as well, along with a team-high 7 assists.  He continues to struggle with ‘russdiculous’-type turnovers and forces things too often. *Montrezl posted 12 points and 13 boards in a grueling 38 minutes. *Terry Rozier came off the bench to spell an injured Chris Jones, socring 8 points and grabbing...Continue reading »

Photo – dawgsports.com In a move that will turn heads in the college football circles, Louisville lured Georgia’s defensive coordinator Todd Grantham to the same position at UofL.  Grantham will receive a hefty $1 million annual salary, up from $850,000 at UGA, making him one of the highest paid assistants in the country.  He had been a finalist last off-season for the Philadelphia Eagles DC position under Chip Kelly.  This year in Athens – at least numbers wise – didn’t seem overly impressive as the Bulldogs...Continue reading »
