Former Louisville power forward Rakeem Buckles, who recently sat out a year after transferring to Florida International, had planned on following coach Richard Pitino to Minnesota after FIU received a postseason ban for low APR scores. Unfortunately, the NCAA had other plans and has deemed him ineligible and has denied his transfer. The news was first reported by Amelia Rayno of the Minnesota Star Tribune. After sitting out, Buckles had hoped to transfer and be immediately eligible after already sitting out a year. Furthermore, with the postseason...Continue reading »

(Photo – Philadelphia Inquirer)   Former University of Kentucky star point guard Wayne Turner has officially been added to the Louisville coaching staff this afternoon. According to a press release from UofL, Turner will be a graduate assistant responsible for helping with opponent scouting through extensive video breakdowns, game preparation and assisting in on-campus recruiting efforts. He will live in Minardi Hall with the players and equipment staff where he’ll help mentor the team both on and off the court. Turner won...Continue reading »

First of all, Charles Blair is a better fan than you. Or me. In fact, whenever crusty old Mitch McConnell decides to hang it up, I think Charles should take a shot at running for a Senate seat. After all, he lives in the state of Louisville and wants to spread the good word. You’ve got my vote, Chuck. I’m not really sure how (especially given the social media craze of modern times), but the following pictures have managed to somehow fly under the radar….up until now, that is. Charles has carved up the Cardinal equivalent of...Continue reading »

(Photo – 247 Sports)   Terry Ramsey, a 6-5, 235 lb defensive end from Clayton, Ohio committed to the University of Louisville on July 21st of 2013. The three-star athlete also held offers from Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota, Indiana and Kentucky, among others. But what you don’t know is that Ramsey has a pretty damn good backstory. He’s survived a lot of trials and tribulations that most of us simply cannot relate to. Jared Shanker of ESPN wrote a great piece that outlines Ramsey’s turbulent childhood and...Continue reading »

(Photo -ESPN)   It reads almost like a joke, but there’s nothing funny about this one. UofL has confirmed that junior starting defensive end Lorenzo Mauldin was involved in a fairly serious moped accident this morning on campus. While details are still in question, we do know that Mauldin was struck by a car and taken to the hospital for further evaluation. The greedy football side of me is thinking this is a huge blow to the team and one they can ill-afford. Depth on the defensive line is a question and Mauldin is known for his...Continue reading »

  I had to laugh a little when I first read this. According to Lindy’s preseason college basketball magazine, they have ranked Louisville 7th in their top-25. Technically the magazine doesn’t come out for another week (and there’s nothing available on-line) so we can’t read their reasoning behind this decision, still, it’s pretty absurd. Their top 10 looks like this: 1. Michigan State 2. Kentucky 3. Duke 4. Kansas 5. North Carolina 6. Ohio State 7. Louisville 8. Florida 9. Oklahoma State 10. Michigan I really...Continue reading »

The season is finally upon us and with that, it’s now time to see the various companies that outfit the nation’s college football teams.  Nike has long dominated the college athletic apparel/uniform market, but adidas, who has outfitted Louisville since 1998, has several big-time schools on their roster.  Another outfitter, Under Armour, has come out on the scene too.   Here is a breakdown of the entire FBS – conferences and independents – in regards of who makes their uniforms.  NOTE: Those schools not mentioned are Nike. AAC:...Continue reading »
