There is no doubt.  The ACC is King of College Football in 2016.  With a national title, two New Year’s Six bowl wins, the Heisman Trophy winner, and the best bowl record (9-3), the ACC surpassed the SEC for the top conference.  While UofL did nothing to help the league in the out of conference schedule against the SEC this year, the league finished (10-4) against the juggernaut as well as (6-2) against the Big Ten.  Both leagues were perceived to be better than the ACC – that’s no longer the case.  LSL...Continue reading »

Most UofL football fans have been asking themselves, “How could a season with so much promise end up such a flop?”  You can try to rationalize it and blame it on someone or a position group, etc.  But the collapse comes down to one simple thing – expectations.  Numerous times in the preseason and up until the Clemson game we heard Coach Petrino talk about the program’s goal of winning a national championship.   That’s a great goal to have for the program – but it’s...Continue reading »

  There is really no point in typing another 1,000+ words on what everyone and their brother now knows: Bobby Petrino and the Louisville football team engineered arguably the most embarrassing collapse in program history 6 of the last 8 games of the 2016 season, making virtually no adjustments along the way. After Saturday afternoon’s national humiliation at the hands of an above average at best LSU team without its best player, there is also really nothing more left to say even if one wanted to do so. At least nothing that...Continue reading »

  Renowned theoretical physicist Albert Einstein once was reported to have said, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” No quote better embodies Louisville’s halfcourt offense and their reliance on the three-pointer. The quote itself is not perfectly worded (and according to some reports, Einstein may have never have said it at all), for after all, repeating the same thing over and over is also called “practice” by many, and practice can of course lead to...Continue reading »
