  We have to get used to – if we’re not already – hearing Tom Jurich and Charlie Strong’s names being mentioned with top jobs around the country.  While there aren’t many AD positions out there that could get Jurich’s attention, you’d imagine that Texas has the potential to be one.  Coach Strong of course turned down Tennessee last year, but has seen his name being thrown around (not seriously) as a possible candidate for the vacant USC job.  Sports Illustrated released their list of potential...Continue reading »

(Photo – US Presswire)   By now you’ve probably heard the term QBR (Quarterback Rating) when watching a college or pro football game. Typically it measures the performance and accuracy of a player during a given game. However, the folks over at ESPN have devised a more complex QBR system that takes into account a team’s strength of schedule and opponents’ defense, etc. The season-long rankings are designed to measure a Quarterback’s performance for all 12 games, through varying levels of competition. The...Continue reading »

The Cards started 9th in the preseason polls, soon rose to 6th/7th, then dropped to 8th after last week’s lackluster win over Temple.  Most Cards fans agree with Louisville’s ranking of 8 currently, but they will probably disagree with their low ranking of 11th in’s projected BCS poll.  The BCS poll factors in a plethora of computer data as well as two human polls – the Coaches and Harris.  The Sagarin has the Cards highest at 8th while the Massey somehow slotted them at 27th.  Your guess is as good...Continue reading »

The ESPN Stats & Information folks released their first power rankings list and the group has UofL’s future conference 3rd, while their current league ranks 6th.  The ACC’s surge comes as a bit of a surprise, but the American’s spot at #6 does not.  According to the rankings, the ACC (74.7) is a good distance away from the SEC (95.7) and Pac 12 (89.1), but has a sizable lead on the Big 12 (62.3) and Big Ten (61.4).  Then – with a a huge gap – comes the AAC (37.2) who is enjoying a wide margin with the next...Continue reading »

Friend of LSL Andrea Adelson published an insightful piece on about how well the ACC has been doing this year and how the national pundits hold the SEC to a higher – and double – standard.  Headlined by #3 Clemson beating #7 Georgia and #13 Miami topping #17 Florida, the league is well on its way to earning some much needed national recognition.  In its first installment of conference power rankings, ESPN Stat and Information slotted the ACC 3rd, behind only the SEC and Pac 12.  However, while the ACC is gaining national...Continue reading »

  Louisville head coach Charlie Strong met with the media today and for his weekly press conference and gave updates on several injured players. The Cards have superior depth compared to past teams, but with Rutgers and Central Florida knocking on the door, they’ll need all the firepower can they get. Here’s the latest. DeVante Parker: The star junior wide receiver left the Temple game after sustaining a shoulder injury in the first half and is currently day-to-day as the staff treats his injury. “Parker will be evaluated...Continue reading »

(Photo – Nick Stover)   Despite a sputtering second half offense, the Louisville Cardinals defeated a hapless Temple team in Lincoln Financial Field on Saturday, 30-7, in front of hundreds of rabid fans (no, seriously). At times the Cards looked to be on cruise control but in the end it’s kind of difficult to really gain any perspective whatsoever on that win. The Owls are now 0-5 and didn’t seem like they put up much of a fight until the second half. Should the final score have been worse? Probably, but unlike most,...Continue reading »

Photo – Louisville’s win over Temple didn’t impress the voters, and deservedly so, they voted Florida State ahead of Louisville in the latest AP Poll and Coaches Polls.   Unlike the Coaches Poll, fans can see where the AP voters ranked UofL.  This week, nine of the 60 voters in the AP Poll didn’t include Louisville in their Top 10.   Louisville’s next opponent, Rutgers checks in at 4-1 and received two votes in the AP Poll (34th) and eight votes in the Coaches (32nd).  In these next two games,...Continue reading »
