If you want to take another look at Bridgewater’s career, here is a two-part series paying tribute to Teddy. Part one looks...Continue reading »

(Photo – David Butler / USA Today Sports)   To be a top ten team or not to be a top ten team. That’s the question. Err, something like that. The fact of the matter is, one quick scan across the landscape of college basketball’s various rating /ranking systems shows some interesting peaks and valleys for the Louisville Cardinals. How can one team be so polarizing and viewed in so many different lights?

Photo – With Petrino and staff in full pursuit mode to collect a class of recruits in the next couple of weeks, many fans are concerned about what the finished product will be.  Anytime a coach leaves in January, it puts the next staff in a difficult situation to land and/or retain the elite prospects the previous staff landed.  With that said, let’s focus on the talent already on the roster for 2014, namely Will Gardner.  UofL’s newest starting signal caller waited patiently behind All-World QB Teddy Bridgewater...Continue reading »

Photo – Now that about half of the season is complete, people have started to compare the numbers of Mangok’s freshman campaign to that of Gorgui’s.  Both players had the same slender build during their first year of action for the Cards.  Both were raw offensively and somewhat lost on defense as they learned their way through the rough and tumble rigors of Division-1 basketball.  Here’s how they compare numbers-wise through UofL’s first 19 games in each of their first seasons: Mangok: 16.4-minutes...Continue reading »

He has a strong bond with...Continue reading »
