(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 »

Based on the Sagarin Ratings, Louisville is just one of three teams that won’t face another ranked team in this week’s Top 25 poll.  UofL’s chance to make it in the top 2 spots are slim, but as you can see, there will be many chances for the teams ahead of the Cards to lose. At the halfway mark of the season, things are starting to heat up. Everyone is into their conference schedules, and highly-ranked (often undefeated) teams will be facing off every week. To size up the rest of the season, we used Jeff Sagarin’s...Continue reading »

Photo – USA TODAY The 8th-ranked Louisville Cardinals moved to 6-0 after beating Rutgers for the fourth straight time, but many of us were groaning about the win.  Sure, the predictable play calling can be criticized.  Yes Teddy should have been throwing the ball much more against a team that ranked 116th nationally in pass defense.  But, the Cards are 6-0 and are in the driver’s seat for another BCS Bowl bid.  Four years ago Steve Kragthorpe was running the program into the ground and all of the fans grew apathetic.  Currently,...Continue reading »

(Photo – USA Today)   Last night in a rowdy environment at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium, the Louisville Cardinals took care of business. You wouldn’t know it given the chatter floating around town today on sports radio and Twitter, but the 8th ranked Cards did what they needed to do. Could it have been a more decisive victory? Probably. Was the play-calling perhaps a bit too focused around the run? Perhaps. Did the offense sputter in the redzone for a second straight game? Absolutely. Am I talking to myself in the middle...Continue reading »

While it was never really serious, Tom Jurich’s name was mentioned several times as a top candidate to replace DeLoss Dodds at Texas.  Most people in the industry believed that Jurcih would at least listen to a Longhorn pitch since they are the top revenue producing school, bringing in $163 million annually.  Pat Forde put that and any other story to bed as he reported that Jurich will stay at Louisville and that he isn’t a candidate for any other job. Jurich’s name has been mentioned prominently as a successor to outgoing...Continue reading »
