Jeff Sagarin has been publishing college football computer ratings for over 30 years.  For most of that time I have applied his ratings to Louisville’s football and basketball schedules to project game-by-game results and to predict Louisville’s final regular season record. Sagarin releases multiple ratings which he calculates in different ways.  To project Louisville’s results I use Sagarin’s “Predictor” ratings.  These ratings are based entirely on the scores of previous games and I have found them to be his most accurate...Continue reading »

King’s effort to reconnect with U.S. consumers is working. Adidas’ U.S. footwear sales climbed 26 percent in the second quarter,...Continue reading »

The shoe and apparel war between adidas, Nike, and Under Armour never ends.  UCLA, who had been with adidas since 1999, left for Under Armour with an eye popping 15-year $250M+ deal. Wisconsin, who had been sponsored by adidas as well, parted ways with them and signed with Under Armour for the next 10 years.  In April of 2014, Louisville announced that they signed a 5-year, $39 million extension with adidas.  Still no word if UofL notified adidas on July 1st if they picked up or declined the option for 2018-19.  With that said, let’s...Continue reading »

  With a little over two weeks before the 2016 college football season commences, the Louisville football team conducted its final open practice for fans Tuesday morning. Here are some takeaways:   Jackson Inconsistent, but Impressive Nonetheless Tuesday was probably one of QB Lamar Jackson’s more inconsistent throwing performances of the summer, as he overthrew and threw behind his receivers a few times in each segment of practice. However, this should be of little concern for fans. When he was accurate on Tuesday (and there...Continue reading »

  Less than two weeks after securing a commitment from top center prospect Malik Williams, Louisville coach Rick Pitino has added top point guard Darius Perry to his growing 2017 recruiting class. Perry, who is ranked as high as 48th nationally by recruiting services, took an official visit to Louisville August 3rd and chose Louisville over his home-state program Georgia.

Former lady Cardinal and current WNBA superstar, Angel McCoughtry, is helping to lead her Olympic squad — with style. The USA women’s basketball team are putting together some of the most dominating performances of any team sport in the 2016 Olympics. The closest game for the USA women still resulted in a 26-point blowout of their competition. Through four games, they have yet to face a real test. On Friday versus Canada, in which the USA found themselves victorious in an 81-51 route, former Louisville standout Angel McCoughtry...Continue reading »

After an early morning conference call with ADs, the ACC remained in decided about increasing league games from eight to nine.  The other option is to remain at eight but schedule two Power 5 opponents.  Either way, UofL is good through 2020 as the Cards play Purdue and Alabama at neutral sites and Notre Dame at home and in South Bend the following year – in addition to beating UK annually. But after this recent deadlock, the league needs to adopt the 8 + 2 model.  The two major reasons for this are the four schools who have the yearly...Continue reading »

  Legendary former Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater began his third season with the Minnesota Vikings the same way he spent most of his 2016 campaign: running for his life. Bridgewater, who was the most unfairly criticized QB in the 2014 NFL Draft Class by embarrassingly wrong draft pundits, has proven his doubters wrong in his first two seasons in the NFL. After being named the Pepsi 2014 NFL Rookie of the Year, he made the Pro Bowl his second season after helping lead the Vikings to the playoffs. However, despite his best effort, he...Continue reading »

  Teddy Bridgewater will be playing as close to Louisville as possible tonight when he and the Minnesota Vikings visit the Cincinnati Bengals in their first preseason game.  Bridgewater probably won’t play more than a quarter, but this gives UofL fans a chance to see him play in person once again.  He remarked about being close to home once again during practice this week. With an upgraded offensive line including new acquisitions Andre Smith and Alex Boone as well as a legitimate #1 WR target in Laquon Treadwell, Bridgewater...Continue reading »
