  At this point we know that Louisville is a preseason top-10 team, according to the coaches poll, and they’ve been picked to win their lone year in the AAC by virtually every publication we’ve seen up to this point. Last night CBS jumped on board and released their American Athletic Conference preview and, as expected, it was heavy on Louisville flavor. First, they picked the Cards to win the conference, though, they believe it will come down to the final week of the season when Louisville visits Cincinnati. They pick Teddy...Continue reading »

  Louisville wide receiver and local Trinity product James Quick has certainly garnered his fair share of attention as he prepares to start his collegiate career in a few weeks. He was a US Army All-American and one of the top 10 receivers in the country according to most scouting websites. Yesterday, during UofL’s annual football media day, offensive coordinator Shawn Watson said Quick, in addition to having blazing speed, just genuinely has a great football mind and will definitely be a part of the offense as a true freshman this...Continue reading »

LSL was lucky enough to grab Teddy for a few questions after the original media feeding frenzy died down.  Here’s what he had to say. LSL: What’s one game you’re looking forward to the most this year? Teddy: The first game. You have to take it one game at time.  Ohio will be a tough opponent.  We know that this season will be a process. LSL: What’s the toughest atmosphere you’ve had to play in at Louisville? Teddy: I want to say the Cincinnati game from last year and the South Florida game from last year because...Continue reading »

photo – louisvillefootball.wordpress.com The coordinators spent about 30 minutes each discussing the upcoming season and their respective units and they both oozed with confidence when they spoke about their players. When Coach Bedford retires, he will have a job waiting for him as a stand up comedian as he mixed jokes with his plans for a more aggressive defense this fall. Expect to see blitzing and a lot more of it from Bedford’s squad. Watson wasn’t nearly as funny, but you quickly got the sense he knows the amount of...Continue reading »

  The Indianapolis Star reported last night that Louisville and Indiana were in talks to play each other in 2014 as part of the Coaches Vs Cancer Jimmy V Classic event which is held annually at Madison Square Garden. And while nothing official has been released from Kenny Klein or anyone else in the UofL sports information department, it appears that the game is going to happen. CL Brown of the Courier Journal reported this morning that Indiana spokesman JD Campbell stated that IU has a contract to play in the Jimmy V classic, but refrained...Continue reading »

Myles Turner has experienced a meteoric rise this summer, and is becoming a major target for top programs around the country. Turner has gone from virtually unknown and unranked to a top 5 prospect in the 2014 class. It seems Myles Turner would fit the mold of a Nerlens Noel, but with a better perimeter shot. He is a phenomenal shot blocker, and he is also great at running the floor consistently. I can envision Turner earning most of his points in the face-up game, as well as through pick and rolls, screens, trailing, etc. According to CBS...Continue reading »

Two defensive tackles in two days for Coach Strong & Co. as 3-star DT Chris Nelson committed last night.  The 6’2 295 lb. DT from Victory Christian Academy in Lakeland, FL chose the Cards over Iowa, Kentucky, Missouri, NC State, Nebraska, among others.  Nationally, he ranks as the 56th DT and it appears that UofL has fulfilled their need to add some beef to the D-Line.  Nelson became the 25th player to commit to the Cards for their 2014 class that 247sports ranks 20th currently.  Also, Coach Jean-Mary has been on a hot streak...Continue reading »

  In case you haven’t heard, a seller on ebay has acquired a number of autographed pieces of memorabilia from college football stars like Johnny Manziel, Jadaveon Clowney and Braxton Miller and is attempting to sell them on-line for thousands of dollars. The fiasco first came to light when rumors began to circulate that Manziel was paid for his autographs, which is, of course, a blatant violation of NCAA rules. At this point, all we know is that the same seller also has autographed memorabilia from Teddy Bridgewater in his possession....Continue reading »
