(Photo – Joe Robbins/Getty Images) Somewhere between the 2014 Russell Athletic Bowl and now, being arguably the best quarterback in college football was no longer good enough for former Louisville star Teddy Bridgewater. Nor was his grit, his intelligence, or his clutch play in big games. How he plays the actual game of football no longer has any meaning, or at least this seems to be the opinion of a number of NFL scouts and analysts. No, now the only things that should matter to teams drafting a QB are physical measurements and...Continue reading »

  While almost the entire offense, as well as the defensive line and linebacking corps remain strong for Louisville heading into the 2014 season, the one question mark (the secondary) just got a little more help. Bobby Petrino and his staff just made things official by signing San Mateo Community College cornerback Isaac Watson. Standing at 6’2, 225 lbs, Watson will have two years of eligibility remaining and will likely compete for a spot in the rotation immediately this fall. A teammate of recent Louisville defensive end signee...Continue reading »

  There is a story on ESPN’s ACC Blog  about the mixed opinions between AD’s of the ACC on the future of ACC scheduling. Recently at ACC meetings it was discussed as a topic to be put front and center in a couple of weeks at the annual Spring ACC meetings in Amelia Island, Florida. Wake Forest athletic director Ron Wellman is ready for a vote — again.  After years of flip-flopping between an eight- or nine-game league schedule, the topic is once again up for debate as the ACC athletic directors, coaches and administrators...Continue reading »

(Photo – Over at ESPN’s ACC Blog, Andrea Adelson has a write up about UofL’s Spring practice for 2014. She talks about what players emerged, what questions still need to be addressed, and what we could expect from UofL in its first season in the ACC. Three things we learned in the spring about the Louisville Cardinals:  Will Gardner emerges at QB. Teddy Bridgewater leaves behind big shoes to fill, and now it falls to Gardner to pick up where he left off. Gardner emerged as the starter this spring,...Continue reading »

Photo – AP If you search through the internet and channel surf on television, chances are you will see something negative pertaining to Teddy Bridgewater and the NFL Draft.  It seems as though the Teddy we’ve all seen perform at a high level is no longer worthy of a first round pick all because of an off pro day.  But lo and behold, there is actually a positive story from the national perspective on the Louisville legend. What’s even sillier about all this is Bridgewater had lots of decision-making responsibility at the...Continue reading »

(Photo – Streeter Lecka / Getty Images) After a report from Adam Zagoria surfaced last week stating that Chane Behanan was going to bypass college and go pro, the former Louisville forward quickly tried to smash the rumors and publicly stated that he wasn’t sure what he was going to do. His new coach at Colorado State, Larry Eustachy issued a vague response to the rumors and essentially left the door wide open for either option. Then, a few days later in an interview with the Denver Post, Eustachy retracted some of that ambiguity...Continue reading »

(Photo – USA Today) has released its preseason top 25 rankings for the 2014-2015 season and Louisville comes in at #10. Replacing Russ Smith and Luke Hancock will be a challenge, but the combination of Terry Rozier/Chris Jones should be capable of filling the void left by Louisville’s All-American guard and clutch wing sniper. However, Wayne Blackshear, who’s expected to replace Hancock at the 3, needs to step up in a major way if the Cards plan on making another potential run. During his three years at Louisville,...Continue reading »

(Photo – Andy Lyons / Getty Images) In a pivotal decision that will likely cause a ripple effect throughout college football, the SEC has announced that they will stick with an 8-game league slate. The conference was mulling a move that would force each member to play 9 games against its own members, but it was ultimately shot down by a vote of 10-4. Had the conference moved to a 9-game schedule, it would have likely dealt a critical blow to the future of the Louisville- Kentucky rivalry. The ability to get 6 wins and become bowl eligible...Continue reading »

The Hampton-Roads (Va.) Daily Press’ David Teel analyzed every option that the ADs at each ACC school should be weighing while attending the league’s spring meetings in a couple of weeks.  Should Louisville’s new conference stay at 8 games, go to an 8+1 format, making a non-conference game against a power league team, or going to 9? NOTE: This article was published before the SEC made their announcement to stay at 8 league games and play at least one other power conference team. The case for eight: •Four non-conference...Continue reading »

Photo – USATI *3-star OL Chandler Jones was supposed to commit to Louisville on Friday night, but a Mississippi State offer made him delay his final decision until this summer.  UofL still leads in his recruitment, but you get the vibe that he wants to see if he can secure more SEC-school offers. *This is why having a trillion bowls is a bad thing…. With a record 39 bowls in 2014, the system is already operating on a razor-thin edge. There were 72 bowl-eligible teams for 70 spots (35 bowls) from 2010-2012 according to figures...Continue reading »

(Photo – Its going to be a very long off season. Sure, it will be summer soon with warm weather, vacations, riding the motorcycle, etc. But I’m really having trouble waiting for the much-anticipated pigskin weekends of the fall where I can sit on my couch and watch wall-to-wall football. But in the meantime, while we all wait for the huge ACC/season opener against Miami on Monday Night September 1st, we will have to make due sifting through the net to find any scrap of news about the Cards and their upcoming...Continue reading »
