June 19th. That’s the date the University of Louisville was given for the NCAA’s verdict after Thursday’s meeting with the organization. Acting university president Greg Postel and Tom Jurich presented UofL’s case to the NCAA Committee on Infractions. This has been an awful time period for the university’s students and fans for reasons good and bad. But now that we have a verdict date, we can all see a light at the of the tunnel. That’s the good news. The bad news is what that verdict could include. We...Continue reading »

University of Louisville football held its annual spring game Saturday. It’s usually difficult to get a real feel for the team from the spring game, but here’s what I took from it. I thought the secondary for both red and white looked terrific. They showed tight coverage and were able to make some “swarming” plays off of tipped passes. I feel like that was already a better effort than what we saw towards the end of 2016. Jaire Alexander is going to be All-ACC this year. Lorenzo Ward is looking to be a solid addition...Continue reading »
First of all, I love attending the spring game every year. Every other year or so it conflicts with my wife’s birthday so choices have to be made. But the spring game is one of my favorite parts of this time of year. I’ll also add that March through May there is no better place to live than Louisville, Kentucky. University of Louisville football’s spring game (not to mention the emergence of Louisville baseball/softball and Louisville City FC soccer) has become a big part of this time of year. I believe...Continue reading »

Make no mistake, if Donovan Mitchell returns for the 2017-18 campaign, your Louisville Cardinals will be one of the few national title contenders. ESPN.com’s C.L. Brown wrote this piece that summed it up nicely. Louisville could be special. As in, good enough to win the ACC for the first time in its four seasons as a league member. And to reach the Final Four for the first time since winning it all in 2013. And to cut down the nets for the program’s fourth title. But that’s if Donovan Mitchell, Deng Adel and Jaylen...Continue reading »

Could Bobby Petrino’s next big playmaker at Louisville be one of the most unheralded offensive skill players he has signed since returning? Redshirt freshman running back Dae Williams is certainly throwing his name in the hat in that regard. A native of Sapulpa, OK standing at 6-2, 235 lbs., Williams, a class of 2016 signee, has similar size and running style to previous power backs coached by Petrino like Michael Bush, Eric Shelton, and Lionel Gates. However, despite his size and high school production (1,600+ yards rushing,...Continue reading »
I think we all remember where we were four years ago when our Louisville Cardinals won the national championship on that Monday night in April. My sister and I watched the big games with our father at our grandparents house growing up. I felt it was appropriate to watch with those people instead of friends and post up at my sisters house. With every national championship game that comes and goes, I’ll be taken right back to my sisters living room where I paced back and forth liked a caged animal. I’ll think back to Trey Burke/Nik...Continue reading »
