(Photo – USA Today)   In the history of college basketball there have been plenty of prep prospects that come in with tons of hype surrounding them. Look no further than the current crop of freshmen in the 2013 class. Guys like Jabari Parker and Andrew Wiggins have already been dubbed “can’t miss players” and appear to already have plenty of weight on their shoulders. Some of these kids from the past come in and turn out to be great college players, but never quite seemed to find their niche at the pro level (Felipe...Continue reading »

(Photo – Jamie Rhodes / USA Today)   By now we all know the history and back-story of Chane Behanan. His time as a Louisville Cardinal has been turbulent, to say the least. He was the Most Outstanding Player of the Midwest Regional in 2012, helped his team to a National Championship this past year and he’s been an integral part of arguably the hottest program in the nation. Dispersed throughout those career highlights have been a series of lows that range from temporary suspensions, to bans from talking with the media to an...Continue reading »

Photo – With Louisville joining the ACC effective July 1, 2014, UofL football is secure in a power conference for the foreseeable future.  Sports business reporter and guest on LSL Kristi Dosh broke down the payouts between the AQ and non-AQ leagues and the numbers are staggering.  Since the Cards have participated in two BCS Bowls, they have been responsible for earning their league a lot of money during their time in the Big East.  For example, this year alone each BCS bowl will be paying their participants $23.9 million...Continue reading »

(Photo – USA Today)   When word came down this past off-season about some new rules that were going to go into effect in college basketball to help scoring increase and speed up the pace of the game, my initial thought was, “oh sh-t, this is not gonna be good for Louisville.” Rick Pitino’s teams are nationally renowned for their scrappy, physical brand of defense and routinely finish among the best in the nation in total adjusted defense according to Opposing coaches have complained for years that Louisville...Continue reading »

With the upcoming Russell Athletic Bowl against the Miami Hurricanes (9-3, 5-3 ACC) looming for the No.18 Louisville Cardinals I figured it would be a good time to revisit Louisville’s bowl history both against teams from Florida and bowl games they’ve played in the sunshine state. Here’s a quick recap of those games: January 2, 2006 – Jacksonville, FL – Gator Bowl vs. #12 Virginia Tech Hokies – Hokie quarterback Marcus Vick not only stepped on No.15 Louisville’s Elvis Dumervil’s leg, he stepped...Continue reading »

Photo – AP In what has become commonplace, every bowl gives its participants a “swag bag” full of assorted gifts ranging from watches to gift certificates. The NCAA allows up to $550 per player, up to 125 players per team.  The Russell Athletic Bowl will hand out a $450 Best Buy card, a watch, and a Russell Athletic workout shirt.  The Sugar Bowl, for example, will be giving their teams a gift suite (which features a reclining chair), a Fossil watch, a New Era cap, and an Ogio backpack.  Oh, and if you’re playing...Continue reading »

(Photo – Jeff Reinking / UofL athletics)   The Louisville men’s basketball team continues to steadily climb back up the polls after their loss to North Carolina two weeks ago. Both the USA Today coaches and AP polls were just released and the Cards are now ranked 4th and 6th, respectively. Of course, as we all know, these things are rather meaningless this early in the season……but don’t shoot the messenger. It’s a slow news day, I’m cranky and Monday’s f-king suck. Deal with it.

(Photo – USA Today)   It’s that time of the year again, folks. Louisville is back in the postseason, which means a bunch of people from around the country (who have likely seen them play maybe once or twice) will project just how entertaining their bowl game will be. The Cards are set to do battle with the Miami Hurricanes on December 28th in Orlando for the Russell Athletic Bowl. If the early rumors are true, it could be the first of back-to-back match-ups between the two programs (word is, the Canes will also play UofL to...Continue reading »

The day Louisville got its invite to the ACC, it was made known that they would be taking Maryland’s spot in the Atlantic division.  No thinking or debating about it, simply plugging UofL into Maryland’s spot.  Now it appears that realigning the ACC’s divisions could be on the docket once the league holds its winter meetings next month.  According to Clemson’s AD Dan Radakovich, it’s something that is being looked at by commissioner John Swofford.  There appear to be two reasons behind the sudden look at changing...Continue reading »
