It’s no secret that Bobby Petrino is a master when it comes to preparation and game planning.  The precision he demands during practice ensures that his team is always ready to encounter any and everything the opponent will throw at them.  At Louisville, he posted a 41-9 record, at Arkansas he went 34-17, and at Western his first and only team posted an 8-4 mark.  In those opening games, he posted an impressive record of 9-0 with an average margin of victory of 24.2 points per game.  The opponents – UK five times, Missouri...Continue reading »

Coach Petrino’s calling card has always been offense, with an emphasis on the quarterback.  As Will Gardner steps into his new starting role, he has the benefit of being coached and prepared by a coach who has been called an offensive genius.  If you look at how his QBs have performed in their first game of their career (and season overall) you’ll see why so many Cardinal fans are excited to see and are confident in the 6’5 – 225 lb kid from Douglas, Ga.  While Miami is the toughest opening opponent a Petrino coached...Continue reading »

  It sort of flew under the radar, but all of the major sports teams at UofL (and their coaching staffs) participated in the school’s Opening Weekend Kickoff Party last night at Captains Quarters. The event was designed to provide some hype around the students not only returning to school, but also the start of football and soccer, which each begin this weekend. Head men’s basketball coach Rick Pitino took to the stage at one point with a few of his players, but also briefly met with the media to give a full update on his...Continue reading »

  I know Pimp Nasty Unk wants to pretend like the Russell Athletic Bowl never happened, but apparently the Miami players haven’t forgotten. In fact, in today’s edition of the Palm Beach Post, a couple of those players were quoted as saying they felt disrespected by the Louisville team during the 36-9 route in Orlando. The game, which was never in question, actually could have been a lot worse since the Cards took a knee on the final possession and gave up an uncharacteristic safety on their opening drive. Yet, some Canes players...Continue reading »

  Louisville fans, meet Canes Shades. He’s basically the Miami version of Casual Gamer Reed. Except he doesn’t game casually, and he spits a whole lot when he talks. He’s the best. And the absolute fucking worst. Canes Shades, who resides in the barrio’s of the detritus filled slums of Coral Gables, spends his time talking nonsense on the radio, clubbing hard, wearing plastic orange sunglasses at night and screaming obscenities at his i-phone 3 while exhibiting an ever-expanding collection of drool in the northeast...Continue reading »

  It’s a thing of beauty, really. After a mediocre stop-over in the American Athletic Conference a year ago (a league which ultimately yielded the National Champions in Uconn but also housed some less-than-stellar opponents), the Louisville Cardinals are back to playing a top-notch hoops schedule. Upon completing the grueling gauntlet that was the Big East for 8 years, Rick Pitino’s squad had trouble picking up a quality win during the 2013-2014 season due to an abundance of inferior league foes. That won’t be a problem...Continue reading »

(Photo – Howard Smith, USA Today) When Bobby Petrino named redshirt sophomore Will Gardner the starting QB Sunday night, he was only formally confirming what everyone and their brother already knew. Since Petrino’s hiring, Gardner has taken nearly all the first team reps at QB, had a phenomenal spring game performance, and has been miles ahead of above every other QB on the roster. Naming him starter was about as surprising as the sun rising each morning. Yet, something much less predictable will be whether or not Gardner plays...Continue reading »

Preseason polls don’t mean much, but they do provide a platform for discussion among fans.  One look at Lindy’s preseason publication and you’ll see the Louisville Cardinals NOT in the top 10 – which will of course spark up some debate.  Generally, every poll/publication/website that has released a top 10 has the Cards somewhere between 7-9.  I’ll listen to an argument not to place UofL in the top 10, but not when teams like Texas, Gonzaga, and Iowa State are ahead of them.  The likelihood of Louisville going...Continue reading »

If you’re Will Gardner, forget about the size of Teddy’s shoes, because filling them isn’t something that can be done.  However, the sophomore signal caller can make a name for himself right away on Monday night under the guidance of Bobby Petrino.  The folks over at ESPN.com’s ACC blog predict he will do just that in saying that he will be the ACC’s second best QB this season.  With the track record of successful quarterbacks Petrino has coached, it’s certainly not a stretch to state that Gardner can...Continue reading »

As the season creeps even closer, college outfitters adidas, Nike, and Under Armour have released their latest designs for the 2014 season.  It has been well documented that Louisville will rock their black uniforms and helmets for the Miami game on Labor Day, but here’s a look at what everyone else will be wearing.  This is a must see for any uniform junky…. There’s a new playoff system, some new conference assignments, and some new schools, but one thing hasn’t changed: College football teams are adding new uniforms...Continue reading »
