The University of Louisville and its athletic apparel sponsor, Adidas, have rolled out their new postseason uni’s and they’re…… Well, they’re new. And hideous. Again. That said, as horrible as the uniforms were last year they translated to the Cards cutting down the nets, therefore it’s hard to complain too much. And if we’re sticking with the theme of bad gear and on-the-court success, let’s not forget about the retina-burning Infrared jerseys from the Final Four run two years ago. For whatever...Continue reading »

(Photo – John F. Rhodes/AP) *In a game that was billed by SMU as the “biggest game in the history of the program,” the Cards battled back from a 14-point deficit to win comfortably in front of 7,3o5 fans, the largest crowd in school history.  At the game, it was a who’s who of famous Texans as the game was attended by President George W. Bush and family, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, and Cowboys QB Tony Romo. *The Cards were down 14 in the first half, but used a 20-4 run to go up 2 at halftime.  *UofL went up...Continue reading »

Photo – nbcdfw.com To say that SMU is unbeatable at home this season wouldn’t be an exaggeration at all.  Heading into their home finale against Louisville, the Mustangs have yet to lose in their building, Moody Coliseum, where they have won all 9 games.  They played 6 games – winning all of those too – in the Curtis Culwell Center while Moody was being renovated earlier in the year.  At 15-0, SMU has blasted AAC powers Cincinnati by 21 points and Memphis by 15.  They also took care of UConn by 9 points.  They...Continue reading »

(Photo – Streeter Lecka / Getty Images) As #11 Louisville hits the road tonight and travels down to Dallas to play #18 SMU, tickets for the game are becoming quite the hot commodity. In what has been a common theme for opponents when the defending National Champs come to town, the Mustangs are doing a promotional white-out and average tickets (on the secondary market) are going for around $184 apiece. EJ Holland of the Dallas Morning News wrote this piece last night outlining all the crazy numbers behind the ticket sales. For example,...Continue reading »

Two Louisville basketball signees, Shaqquan Aaron and Jaylen Johnson, earned individual accolades yesterday. Aaron was named to the 2014 Star Times boys team, and Johnson earned finalist honors for the Michigan Mr. Basketball award. Here’s the blurb on Aaron: Shaqquan Aaron 6-6, Sr., Rainier Beach Aaron’s ability to score is surpassed by none other, but his unique ability to see the court well and find an open teammate off the dribble separates the senior from other players. The Louisville commit averaged more than 20 points, eight...Continue reading »

LSL is on a Tuesday night this week since the Cards play SMU on Wednesday.  The guys will be analyzing the late game meltdowns and discussing options for improvement when a tight game situation arises again.  They’ll also be breaking down the AAC regular season race and the commitment of 7’2 Anas Mahmoud.  At 7:00 the guys will be joined by CBS national college basketball columnist / analyst Gary Parrish to get his take on the Cards and their chances moving forward in March. Also, with spring football right around the corner,...Continue reading »

Spring football begins on March 18, just two weeks away.  With that, some questions will look to be addressed.  For Louisville, the major question will be how they will adjust to life in the ACC.  Sports Illustrated and College Football News chimed in with their spring football primers. From SI: Louisville: How will the Cardinals adapt to change in their first year in the ACC? Louisville sat on top of the world entering the 2013 campaign: a Heisman candidate at quarterback; a head coach who had won 25 games over three years and was fresh...Continue reading »

(Photo – fiba.com) At times this season, UofL’s frontcourt has been exposed by bigger, more athletic opposition. It’s been the one thing this team has not been able to overcome due to a relatively thin frontcourt. However, as the Cards get set to enter into ACC play next year, it doesn’t appear that height will be a problem much longer. Today Coach P got a commitment from Egyptian 7’2 big man Anas Mahmoud and built upon an already-enormous class. According to ESPN, he’s a 4-star prospect and ranked 69th...Continue reading »

(Photo – Veronica Henri / QMI Agency) Former Louisville quarterback Brian Brohm was acquired by the Winnipeg Blue Bombers today of the CFL from the Hamilton Tiger-Cats today for a 2015 conditional draft pick. Brohm, who spent his lone season with the Tiger-Cats stuck on the bench due to an injury, will now contend for the starting QB job for the Blue Bombers along with former BYU QB Max Hall and former University of Buffalo QB Drew Willy as the team starts a new chapter under new head coach Mike O’Shea. This is the latest stop...Continue reading »

Photo – SI.com March Madness is in full effect and the last week of the regular season in the AAC figures to come down to the wire.  Louisville and Cincinnati are tied for the league lead while SMU, Memphis, and UConn are lurking behind, ready to take advantage if a team ahead of them loses.  It would have to take UC and UofL losing both games to get the Huskies and Tigers into the championship mix, but in March, anything can happen.  Let’s take a look at all the teams who have a shot at the title…. LOUISVILLE (13-3) at...Continue reading »

(Photo – AP) It’s a stat that has been thrown around a lot this year, UofL’s porous record against ranked teams.  It currently stands at (1-5); easily one of the worst records Louisville has had against teams in the Top 25.  Another talking point brought up seemingly every day is the play of Wayne Blackshear in those specific games versus ranked teams.  Saturday’s disappointing loss to Memphis was more evidence that Wayne simply won’t be a factor when the Cards play elite competition.  In the games against...Continue reading »

(Photo – Jim Brown / USA Today) Well, we predicted that the Cards would lose this one in our preview, but I can’t remember the last time it felt so wrong to be right. Louisville found a way, yet again, to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory and they continue to find new and intriguing ways to lose big games. With UConn’s win over Cincinnati yesterday, it means that the Cards have just two wins over teams currently ranked inside the Top-25. They’re modus operandi of not being able to figure out long, athletic teams...Continue reading »
