Bizarrely enough, Russ Smith has returned to the Turkish club that signed him a few months ago.  Ex-Louisville guard Russ Smith saw his international playing career quickly get off to a rough start.  Recently, there was news that his Turkish team, Galatasaray, and the head coach had not been receiving what they wanted from Smith and one of his American teammates, thus requesting the two to be released from the team.  Now, things have changed — for better or for worse. As bizarre as it may seem, Galatasaray has brought...Continue reading »

  So, we’re really doing this, huh? We’re actually witnessing people contemplate whether anyone other than Louisville QB Lamar Jackson is winning the Heisman Trophy? Okay…*sigh*…let’s get this out of the way. Now, don’t get me wrong, following Louisville’s second straight loss of the season in the season finale vs. Kentucky, I had my doubts. I thought that a couple of great performances by Washington’s Jake Browning or Alabama’s Jalen Hurts could very possibly bump Jackson aside. However,...Continue reading »

If there are two things about the College Football Playoff committee that have been consistent, it’s that they love brand name football and do not like Louisville. Like, at all. The committee released their updated rankings Tuesday night, and following back to back losses to Houston and Kentucky, Louisville, who was #5 just two weeks ago, fell to #13. A team who they beat by 43 points earlier in the season and is behind Louisville in the ACC standings, though, jumped them to #12. That’s right, the same Florida State team Louisville...Continue reading »
