Rick Pitino’s Louisville Cardinals, fresh off of a national championship, will once again be expected to contend for the crown in the 2013-14 season. The team returns the majority of their championship roster, but also welcome in a top 10 recruiting class, thus creating high expectations. Much of the hype surrounding the recruit class has been geared towards talented backcourt players Terry Rozier, Anton Gill and 2013 Junior College National Player of the Year Chris Jones, who are all considered elite guards expected to contribute immediately. Be that as it...Continue reading »

photo – @k_cheesebrough Fans waiting to buy tickets for the NCAA Baseball Regional this morning *Athlon says the Cards are poised for a hot start The MAC played the role of spoiler against the Big East last season (Kent State over Rutgers, Toledo over Cincinnati, Western Michigan over Connecticut). Ohio returns quarterback Tyler Tettleton and running back Beau Blankenship from the team that upset Penn State last season, so Louisville should be on alert. That said, if the Cardinals are indeed a top-10 team in 2013, they shouldn’t have much trouble with the first...Continue reading »

“We should start next season the same way we ended this year; number 1.”   The ridiculously early 2013-14 college basketball polls continue to be released and the most recent one – Sporting News - has the Cards the lowest spot we’ve seen so far.  Now granted, it’s still #3 in the nation, but many, if not the majority of UofL fans think the Cards deserve the top preseason spot.  Last year’s “Underachieveables” bring in the best recruiting class again and are slated at #1.  However, SN’s Mike DeCourcy puts Sparty...Continue reading »

photo – mail.com   By now, you’re probably well versed in the ignorant comments made by Mr. Bow Tie himself.  WAVE 3 asked UofL President Dr. James Ramsey his thoughts on the matter of Ohio State’s Gordon Gee’s  comment about UofL and he didn’t hold back. After all, Ramsey has done nothing but completely turn around the University of Louisville in both academics and athletics and there was no way he could have (or should have) stayed quiet on this one. “I would say in that particular president’s case, it’s not unusual...Continue reading »

As Charlie Strong and Louisville continues to prepare for the 2013 season, fans, players and coaches all seem to have accepted the fact that barring a bizarre junior season collapse, this will be Teddy Bridgewater’s last season wearing a Cardinal uniform. It is going to be an impossible task to replace Bridgewater, who should go down as the greatest QB in Cards history, but Strong and his staff are certainly doing their best to try a comparable next-in-line. While the staff still appears to have confidence that one of the QBs currently on the roster, Kyle Bolin...Continue reading »

Photo – Columbus Dispatch   The irony with this one is almost too thick to handle. If you haven’t heard by now, Ohio State President Gordon Gee has landed himself in some seriously hot water after some of his comments made in a December Athletic Council meeting were made public today by the Associated Press. Gee, who in various forms somehow managed to rip the University of Louisville, UK, Polish people, Catholics, Big Ten President Jim Delaney and the entire Southeastern Conference, issued a statement “apologizing” for his remarks, saying,...Continue reading »

Photo – Sports Illustrated   The folks over at NFLDraftScout.com (a website powered by CBS Sports) have updated their 2014 Mock Draft rankings and Louisville’s Teddy Bridgewater sits at #1 going to the Jacksonville Jaguars. We’ve linked several mock drafts now over the past few weeks and the absolute lowest Bridgewater was projected was 8th. Many sites have him pegged as the second overall pick behind South Carolina’s bruising defensive end, Jadeveon Clowney. However, both Rob Rang and Dane Brugler of NFL Draft Scout believe that Teddy Ball-Game...Continue reading »

  If Louisville is going to be stuck in “The American” for a year, they might as well dominate it, right?  CBSSports.com feels that way as they preview the new AAC in their installment called “Conference Catchup”.  The Cards placed 3 players on the early all-conference team and are picked to win the league.  This league won’t be confused with the ACC or the Big East of years past, but it will be a solid basketball conference as evidenced by the top 5 teams listed below.   UofL will have to play each team in the conference twice,...Continue reading »

Photo – GoCards.com   Year in and year out, nobody does the whole college football preview thing better than Phil Steele. His knowledge of the game, connections, and attention to detail have helped set him apart from the competition for years. Even his abbreviations and suspect grammar get a pass in my book, as the content always reigns supreme. Anyway, his 2013-2014 preview is not yet available on-line or in stores, but they did release his all-conference teams yesterday on www.philsteele.com and apparently he’s very high on Charlie Strong and the boys....Continue reading »

Photo – Cincinnati.com   Mike Edwards, a 3-star defensive back from Cincinnati, Ohio, has released his final six schools and Louisville is one of them. Edwards attends Winton Woods High School, the same school that produced Louisville junior running back Dominique Brown. Edwards, a 5-11, 180 lb player, is listed as a safety by 247sports and is also considering Nebraska, Vanderbilt, Kentucky, Wisconsin, and West Virginia. Below is an excerpt and you can read the entire thing here. Edwards tweeted that he is down to, in no particular order, U of L, UK, Nebraska,...Continue reading »
