 (Photo – It was announced earlier in the week that USC junior-to-be QB Max Wittek had opted to transfer from the school. He is eligible to graduate in the spring and plans to do just that, which will allow him to play immediately wherever he chooses to transfer. Could Louisville be among the schools he will consider? According to the USC blog Reign of Troy, it makes sense. Louisville Cardinals: In a trend with Fresno State and San Jose State, the Cards are having to replace an NFL arm in Teddy Bridgewater.

(DeSean Blair: Photo – Florida Times Union) National Signing Day for football recruits is less than a week away, and as it currently stands, Louisville has 18 commits in the class of 2014. Of those commits, 3 are already enrolled in classes (LJ Scott, Trevon Young & Cameron Polk), and of the other 15, a good number of them are wavering/considering other options following Strong’s departure. In their 3 weeks on the job (or less, for some), the new Cards football staff has reeled in 2 commitments (OL Kelby Johnson & DB Shaq...Continue reading »

The Louisville Cardinals moved up two spots in the USA Today Coaches poll, rising from #9 to t-7th with Kansas. There was no movement in the AP poll as the Cards remained #12. There’s still plenty of college basketball left to be played so these rankings are meaningless at this point. U of L, however, has a chance to impress pollsters this Thursday night as they take on #13/#15 Cincinnati. A win over the Bearcats will be the team’s first victory over a ranked opponent this season.

Photo – USA TODAY After playing sparingly the majority of the season, Minnesota Timberwolves rookie and former Card Gorgui Dieng appears to be in line for more PT soon.  Starting center Nikola Pekovic aggravated a nagging Achilles injury and had to leave last night’s game against Chicago.  Gorgs, who’s averaging just 1.5 ppg and 1.8 rpg played 9 minutes last night against the Bulls, but didn’t score. Pekovic can play, but usually in pain, and his aching heel got to be too much during the first quarter of the Timberwolves’...Continue reading »

Photo – AP After a two-week absence, UofL PG Chris Jones will return to the Cards’ lineup this Thursday when #12 Louisville will battle #13 Cincinnati.  His official role is yet to be determined, but he is expected to come off the bench.  While he has been out, Terry Rozier has filled in nicely, averaging 9 points, 4 rebounds, and 3 assists. Jones is Louisville’s third-leading scorer and is second on the team in steals and assists. The Memphis native ranks 23rd nationally in steal percentage, which measures the amount...Continue reading »

Photo – AP Chane Behanan and Colorado State made it official yesterday when both parties confirmed his transfer to the school.  The 6’6 forward is still receiving treatment at the John Lucas Rehabilitation Center in Houston, but is enrolled in online courses at CSU.  He will be eligible in December 2014 and immediately becomes one of the top players in the Mountain West Conference.  His 15-point and 12-rebound performance in the national championship game helped UofL cut down the nets last April. “Chane is one of most talented...Continue reading »

Photo – 247sports The second recruiting weekend under Coach Petrino has netted a new and very important commitment.  Massive 6’8, 315 lb. OL Kelby Johnson committed to UofL before returning to New York today. Johnson, who will have two years of eligibility at UofL, played this past season at ASA College.  He also saw action as a true freshman at Virginia before he transferred.  Johnson picked Louisville over offers from Ole Miss, Purdue, Kansas, and others. This prospect will get the chance to start immediately as his size and...Continue reading »

Photo – Playing in Turkey wasn’t something T-Will planned on doing after a fairly successful stint with the Celtics in the second half of the season last year.  Like in several occasions prior, Williams couldn’t get out of his own way, or the law.  This time, Williams allegedly brought a gun with him when he and his son’s mother met for the exchange of the child.  The charges were later dropped, but Boston wasn’t in the mood to put up with his drama and released him. When he left the team in...Continue reading »

Photo – “Who was the best Louisville basketball team that didn’t win a title?”  We posed the question on twitter and received a ton of feedback.  Predictably, the majority of the older segment of the fanbase went with the ’75 and ’83 Final Four teams, while the younger side went with the Elite Eight squad of 2009.  The 1975 team lost to UCLA in the national semifinals; the ’83 Cards lost to the Houston team known as ‘Phi Slamma Jamma’.  The T-Will led UofL team went...Continue reading »
