    Louisville target Antonio Blakeney, a 5-star shooting guard from Florida, has been impressive all year, particularly at the recent NBA top 100 camp. It’s also no secret that Blakeney has become one of coach Rick Pitino’s top targets for the class of 2015. Louisville and Florida are reportedly the front runners at this point but Blakeney has made it known his recruitment is wide open. This kid is a special talent and he’d be a great get for anyone, including the Cards. Here is his new highlight mixtape from the...Continue reading »

  “We don’t know where we’re going, but we’re not staying here.” That’s the Louisville-related headline on Andy Staples’ fantastic new piece for Sports Illustrated regarding the latest round of conference realignment. It pretty much sums up how the UofL fans and administration felt after the Big East dissolved and it was passed over for inclusion in the Big 12. The newly-formed American Athletic Conference would never propel Louisville to the heights it needed in order to be considered one of...Continue reading »

  As we all know, losing Russ Smith and Luke Hancock was a major blow to the Louisville basketball program. After all, the Cards would have never had a shot at cutting down the nets (or advancing to the Final Four the previous season) without the legendary duo. But moving forward, the cupboard isn’t exactly bare. Rick Pitino has turned things up several notches over the past few years and there looks to be no let-up in sight. With veterans Chris Jones, Wayne Blackshear and Terry Rozier in the fold, Pitino has a solid nucleus in...Continue reading »

  On Monday of this week, the mascots of the other 14 ACC schools toured the city.  They made stops at the Slugger Museum, Churchill Downs, and UofL’s campus.  Yesterday, they visited children at an Autism center downtown.  The ACC party got started at 11:00 yesterday morning with a press conference featuring President Ramsey, Tom Jurich, and ACC Commish John Swofford who then ventured down to Fourth Street Live! to continue the festivities.  Here are the highlights from both the local and national perspective on this historic...Continue reading »

  Well, that didn’t take long. Of all the things that happened during the brief Charlie Strong era, I never quite understood his stance on “traditional” uniforms. For whatever reason, Strong was hellbent on sticking with the basics, despite tons of outcry from both his own players and the fans. It was either red and white or…….well, that’s pretty much it. But it looks like Bobby Petrino is going to take things in a completely different direction right off the bat after announcing yesterday during the...Continue reading »

  First off, as always, let me put a disclaimer on the following words: I’m damn thankful for everything that Charlie Strong did here at Louisville. He resurrected the program from complete disarray and put the Cards back on the map. That said, this is beginning to become a theme. Strong has had some rocky moments since taking the Texas job back in January, but instead of getting better, things continue to look worse and worse. Many recruiting pundits that cover the state of Texas have noted that Strong has been getting killed on the...Continue reading »

  The folks over at ESPN and ESPN.com have been in the midst of counting down the top 50 coaches in college basketball and today Louisville’s Rick Pitino checked in at #5.  My gut reaction was to flip out when I noticed that both John Calipari and Billy Donovan’s names had still not been listed in the countdown. There’s absolutely no arguing that Pitino has been the better and more prolific coach of those three throughout his career. But it’s worth mentioning that ESPN’s criteria is based not upon an entire...Continue reading »

(Photos – USA Today Sports) Terrell Buckley and Lamar Thomas go way back. The UofL football assistants used to do battle against one another on the field long before their respective college coaching careers began. Thomas was a star wide receiver for Miami in the late 80’s and early 90’s and Buckley was an All-American at Florida State during that same stretch. Throughout their on-field clashes, there was nothing but hatred and a whole hell of a lot of smack-talking. But now, nearly 25 years later, that one-time rivalry has...Continue reading »

(Photo — The ACC) The last few years have been a whirlwind on the conference realignment front. Not only was Louisville looking for a new home in one of the five power conferences, but other schools were also looking to leave their respective leagues for greener pastures. You heard the rumors of Florida State and Clemson looking to leave for the Big 12, and Georgia Tech was being heavily considered for the Big Ten. Thankfully, though, none of it ended up happening. In addition to extending an invitation to U of L, ACC commissioner John...Continue reading »
