Here’s the video of his introductory press conference and the official media release from UofL. “We’re very excited to have Kenny in our program,” said Pitino. “The first thing I did when Kevin Keatts left...Continue reading »

Photo – turnonthejets.com One former Cardinal’s draft stock is supposedly falling while the other is on the rise.  However, Teddy Bridgewater and Calvin Pryor both garnered invites to attend May’s NFL Draft in New York City.  That means that both players are virtual locks to be selected in the first round.  Only Alabama and Texas A&M have more players invited (3) than Louisville does.  Could Teddy have the longest wait to hear his named called? Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville Perhaps the draft’s biggest enigma,...Continue reading »

(Photo – espn.com) ESPN’s ACC writer Heather Dinich penned a story today about Michael Dyer being behind Brown right now in the deep Running Back rotation. But as Dinich explains that doesn’t diminish the expectations on him and his senior season. It seems like an eternity ago that running back Michael Dyer was named the offensive MVP of Auburn’s 2010 BCS national championship.  While time has not diminished Dyer’s accomplishments — 2,335 yards and 15 touchdowns during his two seasons at Auburn is still remarkable...Continue reading »

Photo – @GoCards As Cardinal fans, we paid our collective dues this year as UofL blasted through a lame duck year in the American.  Outside of UConn, Cincinnati, and Memphis, there wasn’t a whole lot to get excited about.  As Louisville navigates through its inaugural season in the ACC, the Cards will re-unite with old Big East foes Notre Dame, Pittsburgh, and Syracuse.  They’ll also begin to add to its storied history by playing fellow blue blood programs in Duke and North Carolina. From the ACC release: Dates, times...Continue reading »

(Photo – AhtlonSports.com) AhtlonSports.com has ranked the Top 10 NCAA Basketball Title Games in modern history. The modern era being defined from 1985 when the tournament was expanded to 64 teams, therein making sure to screw all our brackets for the foreseeable future (all while Warren Buffet taunts us with his “Bracket Challenge” from some remote island….but that’s neither here nor there). The Cards come in at Number 7 in the modern day all time title list, and again at Number 10. Not too shabby to have 2...Continue reading »

Photo – Kelly Kline/247Sports Before the Kenny Johnson addition news broke, Coach Pitino was up in New Jersey watching elite 2015 SG Isiah Briscoe.  After the workout, he was offered a scholarship by the Hall of Fame coach and is now seriously considering Louisville. “Just the way he presented his program. He was very honest with me. Just a relationship that I think we can build in years to come, I think it would be great….I’m blessed. I’m thankful for the opportunity.” He said he’s planning on visiting the school at some...Continue reading »

Photo – USATI Louisville won’t be cutting down the nets over it, but bringing in Kenny Johnson is a big time off-season move for Coach Pitino.  In losing Kevin Keatts to the head coaching job at UNC-Wilmington, UofL lost its best recruiter.  Kenny Johnson is someone who can fill his void as he’s responsible for landing studs like Noah Vonleh (a projected top 10 pick in this year’s NBA Draft), Rob Johnson, Troy Williams, and James Blackmon to Indiana.  Coach P went out and grabbed someone who quite possibly won’t...Continue reading »

(Photo – bradenton.com) It’s always nice when the Cards gets the recognition it seemingly has earned by national pundits. This time, Andrea Adelson who is a writer for ESPN’s ACC Blog offers up more evidence (a very appropriate reason No. 502) as to why UofL showed once again it was the right choice to get scooped up in the latest round of ACC expansion. By UofL finishing in the top 15 in 2014 Spring Game attendance, on a Friday Night, and 3rd overall in the ACC, Adelson points out how UofL’s fanbase offers further...Continue reading »

(Photo – Somebody awesome) You just can’t make this sh*t up. Seriously, there is absolutely no end to the amount of L1C4 jokes I’ve heard over the last 3-4 years. Almost on a daily basis, via Twitter, text messages among friends, littering the Blogosphere – whatever – you could see the Kentucky faithful hurling sarcastic insults at Louisville fans from high upon their perch. And by perch I mean the balcony from their double-wides parked near sanitation dumps, blown-up Meth Labs or any tattoo parlor that’s...Continue reading »

Although college basketball is less than 3 weeks removed, it doesn’t look like you’ll have to wait much longer for some huge news. According to their twitter feed, tomorrow morning the ACC is set to announce their full slate of matchups for both the 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 seasons. Unlike the football configuration which is broken up into the Atlantic and Coastal divisions, the ACC has full autonomy (along with the TV networks) to schedule hoops opponents any way they like. Which probably means than the upper echelon programs like...Continue reading »

Photo – USATI This should catch you up on all things Louisville basketball…. *Syracuse.com published a post-season wrap-up for all ACC teams.  This week, UofL was featured. Program trajectory: Even. The Cardinals have won 30 games in four of the last six seasons, and they have advanced to at least the second weekend of the NCAA tournament in five of the last seven years. Pitino is a Hall of Famer, and Louisville has high-level facilities and highest-level resources. In short, the Cardinals are not going to drop off at all because...Continue reading »
