 (Photo – SI.com via AP) Since Bobby Petrino was once again named Louisville’s head coach on January 9th of this year, the key plot elements of the story have mainly surrounded his character. The eerie resemblance to the tale of the Prodigal Son. How crazy Tom Jurich is for hiring him back and how insane the fans are for welcoming him with open arms after all he did. A subplot, or rather an afterthought, of the hiring has been the fact that the man is a damn fine football coach. Some in the media, like Sports Illustrated’s...Continue reading »

(Desean Blair – Photo, Florida Times Union)   Bobby Petrino and his staff have been tirelessly working the recruiting trail this past week, spanning the entire southeast as they attempt to make some late changes and additions to Louisville’s 2014 class. But Petrino will be heading back to town tomorrow as the program gears up for what could be one of the most important recruiting weekends in recent history. The Cards will host 10 top-flight prospects, some of which were previously committed to Charlie Strong while others are...Continue reading »

(Photo – Kim Klement / USA Today) Since dropping that disappointing home game to Memphis on January 9th, Louisville has looked like a completely different team. There’s just no other way around it. They’ve beaten a pair of quality teams in SMU and Connecticut and they’ve absolutely dominated their other two opponents, Houston and now South Florida. Last night was a blood-bath from the opening tip and, if we’re being completely honest, that’s just a really bad USF squad that also had a really bad night in...Continue reading »

Photo – USA TODAY The C-J’s Adam Himmelsbach caught up with Teddy Bridgewater while he took a break from training at the IMG Sports Academy.  He will spend the lion’s share of his time here until he hears his name called in May’s NFL Draft.  He does a little bit of everything, working out, completing drills, and watching film.  All are crucial to keep him at the top of his elite game. “I dreamed of having a chance to play in the NFL,” Bridgewater said. “Now, through Little League football, high school football...Continue reading »

Photo – AP *Louisville played a pretty good game – especially being on the road – but man, USF sucks royally.  After the first television time-out they basically quit caring.  People clean their toilets with more enthusiasm than the Bulls played with. *UofL tied their own AAC record for margin of victory (39) with their bludgeoning of the Bulls. *UofL improved to 17-3 overall and 6-1 in the league. *Five Cards made it to double digits en route to shooting 51% from the field. *UofL held USF to just 36% shooting and forced...Continue reading »

Teddy Bridgewater is arguably the greatest quarterback to ever play for the University of Louisville. After taking over for Will Stein on September 17, 2011 at Kentucky, Bridgewater led the Cards to several dramatic wins and made ridiculous plays that Cards fans will never forget.

If you want to take another look at Bridgewater’s career, here is a two-part series paying tribute to Teddy. Part one looks...Continue reading »
