(Photo – ESPN)   Make sure you tune in to College Game Day tomorrow morning (or if you’re going to the game, set your DVR’s) on ESPN as the show will feature a piece about Teddy Bridgewater and his mother. The program aired a similar segment before the Sugar Bowl but I’m hearing this could be different? Who the hell knows. Just watch. Because it’s Teddy. And Louisville football. And because I said. Here’s a brief preview  of the segment, which will be narrated by everyone’s favorite tear-jerker,...Continue reading »

(photo – 247Sports)   When blue chip guard recruit Jaquan Lyle opted out of his commitment to Louisville this past weekend, it put the Cardinal coaching staff in a rough predicament. Lyle was the headliner of Louisville’s 2014 recruiting class, and his addition to the class led to the exit of the class’s other guard commit, Quentin Snider, who cited playing time as his reason for leaving. Louisville did not exactly chase Snider down after his decision, but perhaps now they are second-guessing that choice after Lyle backed...Continue reading »

  Louisville head coach Rick Pitino has several big men on his recruiting board for the class of 2014 but at this point all but maybe one or two appear to be a longshot. Chicago power forward / center Cliff Alexander has not formally cut the Cards from his list, but he’s no longer going to take an official visit here and he’s announced that he’s going to play with former Louisville commit Jaquan Lyle, wherever he ends up. This, obviously doesn’t bode well for the Cards. Then there’s Myles Turner, another...Continue reading »

(Photo – US Presswire)   Few people are riding as high as Louisville head coach Rick Pitino these days. He’s been a part of Back-to-back Final Fours and Big East Tournament titles, a National Championship and was inducted into the Naismith Hall of Fame all in the last two years. He’s easily one of the most recognizable and legendary names in the game and he’s not letting up anytime soon (as evidenced by the team he’ll field in 2013-2014). But it’s definitely debatable whether or not he’s currently...Continue reading »

(photo — US Presswire)   The U of L football team’s defense has been one of the nation’s best over the last three seasons, ranking in the top 25 in many of the statistical categories. After three games, the defense finds themselves ranked in the top 25 once again. The Cards are ranked 12th nationally in total defense (285 ypg) and are tied for fourth in the nation in points allowed (9.0 ppg). The defense has played extremely well so far and it continues to get better with each passing week. However, according to U of...Continue reading »

The Cards stuck it to Bevo, 41-10 in Old Cardinal Stadium. Jeff Brohm, Ralph Dawkins, and Jamie Asher are some names from the past we are sure to recognize. Again, thanks to upfromtheashes for the video. VN:F [1.9.22_1171]please wait...Rating: 10.0/10 (1 vote cast)...

(Photo – US Presswire)   If you’re not on Twitter (which by now, if you’re a sports fan, you absolutely should be) or you don’t watch Sportscenter, or read the newspaper, or the internet or any other modern form of communication, than you’re probably unaware of the recent trend sweeping the nation. Our beloved QB, Teddy Bridgewater, has become a fixation for certain NFL fanbases as this young season treads along. Fans of various franchises from Jacksonville to Oakland have started a hasthtag on Twitter entitled...Continue reading »

(Photo – USA Today)   After going to back-to-back Final Fours and finally cutting down the National Championship nets for the first time since 1986, it’s safe to say that Louisville’s a pretty hot program. Add in the fact that they’re likely to start the upcoming season ranked no worse than 3rd, and it doesn’t appear that they have much to prove at this point. Or do they? The guys over ESPN have compiled a list of the top 10 teams with something to prove this season and Louisville checks in at #10. Interesting...Continue reading »

  There’s been lot’s of debate throughout the last few days over what Louisville’s less-than-impressive win over Kentucky has done to them (perceptions-wise) from a national standpoint. They managed to move up yet another spot and now sit at #6 in the Coaches Poll (the most important of the two since it counts in the BCS formula) but lost a spot in the AP. With a pathetic 0-3 FIU team coming to Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium this weekend, they’re not gonna get much more love from the media. Then there’s...Continue reading »

  First off, sorry for the delay in getting this post out, but I wanted to re-watch the game on TV after attending in-person. My initial reactions to the game – a 14-point win that seemed anything but impressive – were confirmed after a second viewing and I definitely have some questions about this Louisville team moving forward. That said, some credit should definitely go to Kentucky. They looked like an entirely different team than they did week-one in their loss to Western Kentucky. Yeah, they need to shore up the turnovers,...Continue reading »
