  In true Halloween spirit, the Louisville offense played the part of zombies Friday night at Wake Forest to near perfection in an ugly 20-19 win. For nearly all four quarters, they appeared slow, undisciplined, and unmotivated, but unlike the usual portrayal of zombies, the offense lacked a killer instinct. It was essentially a carbon copy of the previous week’s performance vs. Boston College, as the same penalties were being committed, the same blocking assignments were being blown, and again the unit struggled to move the ball...Continue reading »

We have entered a new phase in the ongoing investigation of the UofL basketball scandal.  Per ESPN, the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s office has issued subpoenas to those involved.  From the report, IBJ Publisher Patricia Keiffner confirmed they will give testimony on November 5th. A book, “Breaking Cardinal Rules: Basketball and the Escort Queen,” published this month by self-described former escort Katina Powell, 42, details nearly two dozen stripping and sex parties from 2010 to 2014 inside Billy Minardi Hall, the...Continue reading »

Now that Tuesday is over and dust has settled, it’s time to take a look at everything we’ve read, heard, and talked about regarding the UofL basketball scandal. What’s Bad for Louisville  *The OTL and ESPN report is by far the most damaging to UofL to date. Five former players and recruits verified some of the allegations in Powell’s book, including one recruiting having sex paid for by McGee.  Per the report, ESPN verified McGee’s cell phone records between he and Powell as well as a Western Union money transfer...Continue reading »

Basketball season is upon us and some  University of Louisville fans’ favorite ex-Cardinals will be appearing on television channels very soon in NBA action. The newest NBA season will officially begin this week, which means it is now basketball’s time of the year to take over the sports world. There are currently four former Louisville Cardinals set to begin the NBA’s 2015-16 regular season with a guaranteed contract: Gorgui Dieng (Minnesota Timberwolves), Russ Smith (Memphis Grizzlies), Terry Rozier (Boston Celtics),...Continue reading »

  The Louisville football team has yet to really put together what pundits refer to as a “complete game” vs. FBS competition this season, so perhaps it is only by the natural order of the universe that when the Cardinal defense took a giant leap forward, the offense took a major step back. Following a questionable effort in a 41-21 loss vs. Florida State a week earlier, a Louisville defense out for redemption went out and seized it Saturday afternoon in a 17-14 win over Boston College. Todd Grantham’s unit dominated...Continue reading »

  2015 Projections — Week 9 Louisville enters Week 9 ranked 34th in the Sagarin Predictor Ratings with a rating of 78.49.  That’s an improvement of 2 spots but a drop of 0.02 points from last week.  (For background on how the Sagarin projections are generated, read the preseason projections article.) Using the Sagarin Predictor ratings to predict game results for the remainder of UofL’s season, a 7-5 season is more likely than any other final regular season record.  The Cards are 58% likely to sweep their next 3...Continue reading »

“Louisville Sports Live” was recently able to interview a Cardinals legend with quite the basketball résumé–Samaki Walker. Samaki Walker spent two seasons from 1994 to 1996 with the University of Louisville Cardinals. Leaving early to enter the NBA Draft, he was a collegiate force in the mold of a 6’9″ frontcourt star. Although he enjoyed an excellent college career, Walker would go on to have a more successful run in the NBA. By the end of two seasons as a Card, Samaki honed a combined average of 14.3 points,...Continue reading »

  Lost in the excitement of Lamar Jackson’s electric freshman season, it has gone virtually unnoticed that the team’s opening game starter, sophomore Reggie Bonnafon, has quietly handled his new team role with grace and dignity. Bonnafon started last season as a true freshman and appeared to win the QB battle following the spring and summer, so seeing his job taken away from him midway through the first game of the season was probably not a pleasant sight. It probably stings more when considering he didn’t even play...Continue reading »

We’ve stated our opinion about this scandal on this website and our radio show.  There’s evidence out there that UofL’s basketball program will be responsible for Andre McGee’s actions that created this mess in the first place.  This scandal has caused a huge amount of embarrassment for the school, its alumni, fans, players, etc.  In the end, the school will pay whatever price the NCAA deems necessary.  What we don’t understand is why Katina Powell, an admitted prostitute and pimped out her three kids, is...Continue reading »
