Chinanu Onuaku will be drafted tonight, but it’s uncertain as to when.  Most mock drafts have him going in the early second round.  Damion Lee and Trey Lewis aren’t projected to hear their name called, but both will sign free agent deals and play in the Summer League next month. *Under Coach Pitino, 11 players have gone on to play in the NBA from UofL: Earl Clark, Gorgui Dieng, Reece Gaines, Francisco Garcia, Montrezl Harrell, Terry Rozier, Samardo Samuels, Peyton Siva, Chris Smith, Russ Smith, Terrence Williams Currently, Gorgui...Continue reading »

SB Nation’s Bill Connelly is college football’s stat guru, the Ken Pomeroy of pigskin.  In his preseason ACC Power Rankings, he projects the Cards as the lone team in ‘Tier 2’. Tier 2 3. Louisville I’m trying as hard as I can to keep my expectations for Jackson tamped down. He’s got work to do when it comes to avoiding mistakes as a passer — too many sacks and picks — but man oh man is he gorgeous with the ball in his hands. Almost the entire offense returns, along with a good portion of a...Continue reading »

It’s not summer until John Calipari opens his mouth to stir things up.  The odd thing about it all is the fact that he dominates Coach P on the court – there’s nothing he really needs to say.  However, he must have some deep seeded ego issues because he keeps taking veiled shots at Pitino and other coaches.  Maybe it’s because he’s underachieved so much?  Anyway, here’s how the two Hall of Fame rivals have stacked up since Cal’s arrival in 2009-10. Wins Pitino: 191-59 (.764) Calipari: 217-47 (.821) Head-to-Head...Continue reading »

  An Australian website, pickandroll.au.com recently published an article on Deng Adel that gave us a glimpse into his kind of expectations for the upcoming season.  In it, he discussed playing for Coach Pitino, his goals for the future, his injury, and what he expects from his team.  This is a really good offseason read. Adel is extremely driven and motivated as he works to achieve his goals. That drive and relentless pursuit of excellence was noticeable even before he headed to Louisville to play under legendary head coach Rick Pitino....Continue reading »

A major reason UofL finds itself ranked in just about every preseason Top 25 poll is the fact they return so many starters.  And when you look at the percentage of yards returning on the offensive side of the ball, Louisville leads the way with an eye popping 99.79%.  With virtually everyone returning, you can see why the Cards are receiving so much hype.  Defensively, UofL is 41st nationally with 69% of the tackles returning – again more reasoning as to why your Louisville Cardinals are expected to be really good.

  Louisville coach Rick Pitino has experienced success recruiting some of the nation’s most talented high school hoops prospects before they become household names on the recruiting circuit. Two recent examples are former center (and current Minnesota Timberwolves starter) Gorgui Dieng and current wing Deng Adel. Now he could add another player to the list with fast-rising 2017 center Luka Garza. Garza, a 6-10, 235 lb. center from Washington, DC, is regarded as a three-star prospect and the 17th best center in the nation, according...Continue reading »

On last week’s LSL radio show, we discussed the potential of a 9-game conference schedule because of ESPN wanting more content due to the future ACC Network.  UofL fans seem for it (see below) while Clemson and FSU supporters aren’t. A small sample size, but we have a different view about a 9 game #ACC schedule compared to #FSUTwitter & #Clemson. pic.twitter.com/ay9S1gvMY4 — LouisvilleSportsLive (@LvilleSprtsLive) June 17, 2016 We had ACC Reporter David Teel on the program and he explained the rationale HERE.  Today,...Continue reading »

We discussed this briefly on Wednesday’s radio show the ‘what if’ scenario regarding the ol’ Metro Conference playing football.  Now, we’re ecstatic about being members of the ACC, but what if the Metro had a football side?  If it did exist, then it would have a nice blend of powerhouse programs and regional rivals.  Let’s take a trip back to 1990, when the Metro conference was at its best.  Its members were (with their current conference membership): Cincinnati (The American) Florida State (ACC) Louisville...Continue reading »

The hype train is firmly on the track for Lamar Jackson.  After his spectacular performance in UofL’s Music City Bowl performance, Jackson can be a darkhorse candidate for the Heisman.  Our guest on LSL radio last night – Sirius XM’s Rachel Baribeau – told us that she believes he can be in the running as week.  That said, CFB Huddle ranked LJ third among ACC candidates for college football’s most prestigious award. 3. Louisville QB Lamar Jackson Lamar Jackson’s freshman campaign for Louisville was a revelation....Continue reading »
