The day Louisville got its invite to the ACC, it was made known that they would be taking Maryland’s spot in the Atlantic division.  No thinking or debating about it, simply plugging UofL into Maryland’s spot.  Now it appears that realigning the ACC’s divisions could be on the docket once the league holds its winter meetings next month.  According to Clemson’s AD Dan Radakovich, it’s something that is being looked at by commissioner John Swofford.  There appear to be two reasons behind the sudden look at changing...Continue reading »

(Photo – UofL Athletics) On this edition of Louisville Sports Live, we preview the huge season finale against Cincinnati on Thursday night and try to figure out what the Cards must do in order to get a win and secure a 2nd place finish in the conference. We also bring on former UofL basketball assistant and current head coach of UKMC, Kareem Richardson, to break down his team (in preparation for tonight’s match-up with Louisville). Naturally, we also touched on last year’s run to the National Championship and what this team...Continue reading »

Photo – gocards.com *The Cards posted their highest point total in the Pitino Era as they knocked down shots from the perimeter all day long. *The Ragin’ Cajuns were 7-10 from 3 in the first half and took a 41-39 lead.  The. Cards countered with an 11-0 run to take control of the game. *Wayne Blackshear easily played his best game of the year, posting 15 points, 5 boards, and 4 steals.  The question now becomes can he do it consistently. *There were six Cards in double figures, led by Trez’s 20 points and 8 boards.  Jones...Continue reading »

The Keg of Nails Trophy will be staying in Louisville’s trophy case after the No.19/16 (BCS/Coaches Poll) Cardinals (11-1, 7-1) declawed the No.23 (Coaches Poll) Bearcats (9-3, 6-2) Thursday night at Nippert Stadium. That will be the keg’s final resting place for the foreseeable future. With the Cards headed off to the ACC and the Bearcats staying put in the AAC, it’s highly unlikely that the rivalry will continue on a yearly basis. The contest opened up with Cincinnati getting the ball and proceeding to pick up a quick...Continue reading »

Photo – Shane Stovall *In a cold, wet night in Cincinnati the Cards, led by Teddy’s heroics, beat UC for the second straight year. *Teddy went 23-37, throwing for 255 yards with 3 TDs.  The epic 4th down run and the escape and TD toss to Copeland were Heisman-esqe. *Cincy native Dominique Brown rushed for 79 yards on 19 carries with a score. *WRs DeVante Parker and Damian Copeland combined for 12 catches and 139 yards with 3 TDs. *The offense put up 432 total yards, while the Cards’ D held UC to 428. *UofL was 5-12 on 3rd...Continue reading »

(Photo – Michelle Hutchins / UofL Athletics)   Despite losing to North Carolina 11 days ago, the Louisville men’s basketball team is still sitting pretty. They’re currently ranked 6th and 7th in the USA Today coaches poll and AP, respectively. However, according to some other efficiency and outside-the-box statistical-tracking websites, the Cards are tops in the nation. If you take a trip over to Kenpom.com (the unofficial king of efficiency rankings), Louisville is still ranked #1, over Arizona, Michigan State, Kansas,...Continue reading »

(Photo – Jamie Rhodes / USA Today)   I don’t know, that was a weird one last night in the Yum Center. Typically, 99.9% of the time when Louisville runs away with a 28-point win, I along with most of you (I assume), would probably be rather content and happy. But, something just didn’t seem right. The Cards, despite a solid margin-of-victory, looked lackadaisical and lost at times and struggled mightily on defense in the second half. If they were playing a halfway-decent opponent (no disrespect to Kareem Richardson and...Continue reading »

Photo – GoCards.com *The Cards welcomed former assistant Kareem Richardson back with an expected beat down. *Russ was busy driving inside the lane and kicking out passes for open shots on the perimeter.  He finished with a career high 11 assists to go along with 10 points and 6 rebounds. *Trez had another solid outing, scoring 14 points and hauling in 7 boards.  He is still the only front court player that consistently finishes inside. *There are two major areas of concern for this squad; interior defense and finishing at the rim....Continue reading »

(Photo – Sports Illustrated) While he has yet to decide what he will do following the season, Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater is projected by many to be the top pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, should he elect to forego his senior season. Mock drafts by Walter Football, Draft Tek, SB Nation’s Mocking the Draft, Sports Illustrated and Bleacher Report (don’t let the site reputation fool you, Matt Miller is sharp) all project Bridgewater to be the top pick in April’s draft. ESPN.com’s Jeffri Chadiha does not think it...Continue reading »
