Video courtesy of The Courier-Journal News came out yesterday that DeVante Parker has a good chance of playing.   Whether he catches a pass or not won’t matter; his presence on the field will be enough to divert attention away from UofL’s other receivers.  Additionally, DB Jermaine Reve made a quiet return last Friday against Syracuse, giving the Cards more depth in the secondary.  Coach Petrino was very complimentary of the Clemson program, but his comment about the crowd noise not being much different the Carrier Dome didn’t...Continue reading »

The most recent extension to the contract, dated July 1, 2014 and signed by both athletic directors, continues the Kentucky-Louisville series on the last game of the regular-season: Nov. 25, 2017 in Lexington, KY Nov....Continue reading »

  “All indications are that he’ll play.”, Bobby Petrino said today during his Monday presser. He, being star wide receiver DeVante Parker. How do you replace an all-american and likely first round draft pick? Well, you don’t, and the Louisville offense has missed Parker’s production immensely. “It’s not something that I’m used to, not being able to go out and call plays freely and throw deep. We’re not there yet.“, Petrino added. Parker will alleviate that. Just google image search his name...Continue reading »

When Gerod Holliman signed with UofL, he was mentioned as an impact player that could possibly crack the two-deep as a true freshman.  He battled through various situations from academics to injuries while playing sparingly in 2012 and 2013.  This season however, Holliman has emerged as one of the nation’s best in the secondary, currently leading the nation in interceptions with 7.  What’s more impressive is that he has three more picks than the next guy in second place.  As the Cards begin their much tougher second half schedule,...Continue reading »

  It sort of flew under the radar yesterday, but Bobby Petrino and Louisville received some incredibly good news in the recruiting world following their 28-6 win over Syracuse. 2016 Oklahoma-based QB, Keaton Torre, gave a verbal pledge to the Cards announcing his decision via Twitter late Saturday afternoon. I’ve decided to further my education and football career and verbally commit to THE University of Louisville! — KT_10 (@keaton_torre) October 4, 2014 Torre, rated as a 4-star QB by 247 Sports, is...Continue reading »

Russ’ reunion in the Yum! Center was special.  Who gets the chance to start their professional career in the same arena where they ended their college days?  He impressed the 20, 074 fans in attendance by making an instant impact (seems familiar doesn’t it?) off the bench for the Pelicans.  Smith finished with 12 points in 13 minutes on 4-7 shooting to help New Orleans pull away in the second half.  The Pelicans coach, who made it a point to say he wouldn’t be influenced by the home crowd wanting Russ to play, came away...Continue reading »

Hard to believe the season is already at the half way point. Here’s my grades for offense, defense, special teams, and a look ahead. Record: 5-1 Opponents Record: 14-16 Offense // C- Needs Improvement. See me after class. (Get well soon, DeVante) Total Points: 179 (Top 20) Total Yards: 2330 (Top 20) When Bobby Petrino was hired, it wa s hard to envision the Louisville offense would be the 80th ranked unit in the country midway through the season. Averaging 156.6 yards a game on the ground coupled with only 231.8 through the air was not...Continue reading »

  The Louisville offense took another step in the right direction in Friday night’s 28-6 win at Syracuse as QB Reggie Bonnafon looked a little more seasoned, the line opened up more holes and gave Bonnafon more time to pass, and RB Brandon Radcliff is turning into a star. It was not a perfect transformation, but the unit took baby steps for the second week in a row, and they finished strong. Unfortunately, though, too many times last night the offense would start to get into a rhythm only to have it thwarted by penalties, turnovers,...Continue reading »
