Photo – USATI *3-star OL Chandler Jones was supposed to commit to Louisville on Friday night, but a Mississippi State offer made him delay his final decision until this summer.  UofL still leads in his recruitment, but you get the vibe that he wants to see if he can secure more SEC-school offers. *This is why having a trillion bowls is a bad thing…. With a record 39 bowls in 2014, the system is already operating on a razor-thin edge. There were 72 bowl-eligible teams for 70 spots (35 bowls) from 2010-2012 according to figures...Continue reading »

(Photo – bleacherreport.com) In an article on wralsportsfan.com, there is discussion about the ACC football schedule going from 8 games to 9 games. As the article shows, there is already support among some of the league’s coaches: Much of the agenda during next month’s ACC spring meetings at Amelia Island (Fla.) will dwell on future scheduling formats in basketball and football.

(Photo – WDRB.com) In the world of cinema, it is an uncommon occurrence when a sequel to a great movie surpasses, or even matches, the original. For the most part, audiences understand this, for when the original sets a bar so high, it is next to impossible for lightning to strike twice. Yet, a quality film is not too much to ask for, and more often than not, a sequel cannot even deliver that, instead becoming a punchline and smear to its original predecessor. The same can be said for the follow up season to “The Year of the...Continue reading »

(Photo – Mitch Deaver) Junior College QB Pat Thomas has made things official and has signed with the University of Louisville. Thomas, 6’4, 185 lbs, played at Georgia Military Academy last season where he threw for nearly 1700 yards and 18 touchdowns. A dual threat QB who’s just as effective scrambling outside of the pocket as he is throwing from inside it, Thomas visited UofL last week and ultimately chose the Cards over UAB, Troy and South Alabama. While, admittedly, he doesn’t exactly hold the craziest offer sheet,...Continue reading »

(Photo – starnewsonline.com) In an article by College Football Talk, it appears that there’s plenty of discussion going on about the model in which the ACC Network would follow once it launches. Given the additions of UofL and Notre Dame, the story discusses how the ACC may have more potential TV markets than any other conference. The ACC also owns more top 30 markets than any other league nationwide. Working with ESPN to get an ACC Network launched would follow the model that was used to get the SEC Network up and running.
