On this episode of LSL, the guys spoke to Phil Steele (at 49:35 in the podcast) about the upcoming season for UofL and the ACC. With Phil: -His thoughts on the 2015 Cards -His overview of the ACC season ahead -Crucial games during the season for Louisville *Plus discussion of the “summer show question” of the best football & basketball uniforms and the over/under of 7.5 wins for the football team *You can listen to the podcast HERE *ipod/iPad users, or if you have any trouble accessing the podcast, please listen below: VN:F...Continue reading »

We were told the new uniforms for the Chick-fil-a Kickoff Classic would be “bold” and indeed they are.  I’m not going to describe them because the pictures below do the job…. Soar Higher. Score Faster.

As Trez and Terry wait for their names to be called on Thursday, it’s likely that the two both go in the first round.  It would be the first time since 2009 and the fourth time in school history that UofL would have more than one draft pick selected in the first round. 1989 – Pervis Ellison 1st overall; Kenny Payne 19th 1994 – Clifford Rozier 16h overall; Greg Minor 25th 2009 – Terrence Williams 11th overall; Earl Clark 14th *Under Coach Pitino, 9 players have gone on to play in the NBA from UofL: Earl Clark, Gorgui...Continue reading »

The constant knock on Pitino at Louisville is the fact that there haven’t been very many NBA players produced under his watch.  With only three in the league now, Harrell and Rozier figure to double that number after their names are called tomorrow.  Coach P talked about the qualities one must possess to stick in the NBA for years – and according to him, Terry and Trez have them. Pitino sees Rozier and Harrell, who were both voted to the All-Atlantic Coast Conference second team, as leaders for another wave. “They’re very...Continue reading »

First we had the “Boom” Williams twitter battle with James Quick.  Then yesterday a picture surfaced showing UK quarterback Patrick Towles in the face of UofL safety Gerod Holliman.  The UK signal caller’s message was similar to Quick’s.  He simply mentioned that he wanted another shot at UofL.  However, the picture he showed portrayed him as the aggressor.  What happened before that was anything but…. https://twitter.com/GerodHolliman/status/613534999523012608 https://instagram.com/p/wJ_HbcmFn4/ VN:F [1.9.22_1171]please...Continue reading »

LSL is back this week with a big show lined up for you today at 6:00 on 93.9 The Ville.  We’ll be talking to college football preview guru Phil Steele.  He’ll give us his predictions on the upcoming UofL and ACC seasons.  We’ll discuss the recent trend in the Maverick Rowan recruitment and explain why it went down the way it did.  The summer show discussion questions are (a) “if you’re Pitino, what do you do with the extra scholarship?” and (b) “who is the most obnoxious fanbase outside of BBN”? ...Continue reading »

Generally, when you’re a part of a program who’s lost four straight to your heated in-state rival, it’s best to refrain from talking smack.  While UK RB Stanley “Boom” Williams had a great game against the Cards – 126 yards and 2 TDs – his team still lost.  You know he really had to be seething after losing again to Louisville as he was one of the main culprits using the upside down L hand gesture to the fans in pregame warm-ups.  In Quick’s defense, he wasn’t even talking smack,...Continue reading »

We don’t have a lot to go on outside of a simple tweet.  However, we can surmise that something about adidas and UofL Football will be revealed soon. New season.

  It’s summer and there probably won’t be a lot of hoops news surfacing until we get closer to the Puerto Rico trip.  Let’s take a look at where Louisville stands nationally in some random areas…. *Louisville has 1,755 wins all-time, good for 11th most (just one win away from 10th place Indiana) *UofL has 21 Sweet 16 appearances, and that’s 4th most all-time *Louisville’s 14 Elite Eight appearances rank 6th most all-time *UofL is one of just 4 schools that have won at least 20 games in each of the...Continue reading »

On Thursday it all ends.  No more will we scour over countless mock drafts and analyze the predictions.  The well-respected Draft Express released their last mock draft and they project former Cards Montrezl Harrell and Terry Rozier to hear their name called in the first round. 24. Montrezl Harrell PF (Louisville – Junior) 21.4 years old | 6’8″ | 253 lbs 2014-15 NCAA (35 GP)   15.7 PPG     9.2 RPG     1.4 APG     25.2 PER   Watch Video With Kevin Love, Tristan Thompson, Kendrick Perkins and Shawn...Continue reading »

  The decision for reclassification finally came last night as Maverick Rowan announced that he’s taking classes so he can become a member of the 2015 class. With that announcement, came news that the 4-star SF ranked 34th nationally by the 247Sports composite will also be taking an official visit to St. John’s. .@maverickrowan told @CBSSports he will take an official visit to St. John's today.

  It is a rarity when a college basketball recruit ranked outside the top five or ten players in the nation is able to generate the same amount of attention as that caliber of player, but that is precisely what sharpshooting wing Maverick Rowan has done. Rowan, a 6-7 small forward who is ranked as the the state of Florida’s best player in the class of 2016 by 247Sports Composite, is ranked as high as #27 overall (Scout.com) and as low as #50 (247Sports.com) among the major scouting services. He had a very good beginning to the summer,...Continue reading »

His tackling – or lack thereof – really hurt his draft stock as the nation’s leader in interceptions fell all the way to the 7th round to Pittsburgh.  However, Holliman looks to have shaken that off and is now making some plays in practice, showing off his instincts to make plays.
