  More lag into the middle summer, more position rankings for you. The latest to jump into the mix is ESPN.com’s Jared Shanker who’s in the midst of counting down the best position groups throughout the ACC. And, not surprisingly, when he released his wide receiver rankings last night, Louisville sat at the top. The only beef I have (and it’s hard to gripe when you’re #1 on any list), is that there should have been more mentions about all the other weapons at Bobby Petrino’s disposal. There’s quick...Continue reading »

Just a month ago, we told you how NFL.com’s Mike Huneguin named Louisville wide receiver DeVante Parker the most freakish athlete in all of college football. It’s a distinction that no one around these parts argued with and it was certainly nice to see his name atop a list with such amazing talent. Now, Fox Sports’ Bruce Feldman has designed a similar set of position rankings and, although Parker fell a bit back into the pack (he checks in at #14 overall for wide receivers), it’s still nice to see him getting the national...Continue reading »

  The NBA Summer League seems to be getting more popular as each regular season passes.  There’s no doubt the boring summer weeks leave hoop junkies starving for anything basketball related, and this serves as a good summertime fix.  The first league and tournament is held in Orlando while the following week has twice as many teams playing  in Las Vegas.  Here’s where some former Cards are playing over the next several days. Orlando Summer League (July 5-11) Detroit – Peyton Siva (Averaging 14 points and 6.5 assists...Continue reading »

The July live evaluation period begins Wednesday and that means coaches will be out in full force watching and evaluating future recruits for their respective programs. To get you prepared for the start of the recruiting period, which lasts for three weeks, CBS Sports’ Jeff Borzello published this piece detailing the assistant coaching moves this past spring that could have an impact on recruiting for the class of 2015. Not surprisingly, Louisville’s Kenny Johnson made the list. Here’s the short blurb on Johnson: Kenny Johnson,...Continue reading »

    Louisville target Antonio Blakeney, a 5-star shooting guard from Florida, has been impressive all year, particularly at the recent NBA top 100 camp. It’s also no secret that Blakeney has become one of coach Rick Pitino’s top targets for the class of 2015. Louisville and Florida are reportedly the front runners at this point but Blakeney has made it known his recruitment is wide open. This kid is a special talent and he’d be a great get for anyone, including the Cards. Here is his new highlight mixtape from the...Continue reading »

Louisville’s rank: Not ranked in the Top 25 Louisville’s predicted finish in the ACC: 3rd in Atlantic Division ACC...Continue reading »

  “We don’t know where we’re going, but we’re not staying here.” That’s the Louisville-related headline on Andy Staples’ fantastic new piece for Sports Illustrated regarding the latest round of conference realignment. It pretty much sums up how the UofL fans and administration felt after the Big East dissolved and it was passed over for inclusion in the Big 12. The newly-formed American Athletic Conference would never propel Louisville to the heights it needed in order to be considered one of...Continue reading »
