(Photo – USA Today) Teddy Bridgewater has had no shortage of impressive moments during his brief stint in Minnesota. The 32nd pick of the draft has caught the attention of his coaching staff and teammates by putting in tons of time learning the playbook and showing an innate ability to absorb information on and off the field. He’ll likely face an uphill battle to become the Vikings starter on day one of the 2014 season due to the presence of veterans Matt Cassel and Christian Ponder. However, as Ben Goessling of ESPN points out,...Continue reading »

(Photo – Getty Images) By now we all know how important Montrezl Harrell has become (and will be) for the University of Louisville as they prepare to rebound from their difficult loss against Kentucky in the 2014 NCAA Tournament. Not only was Harrell a first team All-AAC selection last year and honorable mention AP All-American, but he also turned down a chance to become one of the only first round draft picks in recent UofL basketball history. Bent on coming back to improve his game and work on some of the few weaknesses he has, Harrell...Continue reading »

( The annual Holy Grail of college football preview magazines is still a couple of weeks away from hitting shelves, but Phil Steele’s website is currently doing a countdown and preview of the top 50 teams in the nation. Last night they released the preview for Louisville and the Cards check in at #26 overall. As is always the case, Steele packs in the info by using abbreviations and sometimes it reads a bit choppy, but regardless, there’s still plenty of good stuff here. QUARTERBACKS Bridgewater (PS#7, IFS) as the...Continue reading »

Athlon Sports released their 2014 ACC division standings and they picked the Cards to finish third, behind Florida State and Clemson. It would be no surprise to see Louisville finish with eight, perhaps nine, wins in its debut season in the ACC and Athlon projects the Cards to win eight games. Here’s the Louisville related blurb from the preview: After Florida State in the Atlantic, Clemson ranks as the No. 2 team. The Tigers lose quarterback Tajh Boyd and receiver Sammy Watkins, but there’s still a lot of talent on both sides of the...Continue reading »

Photo – AP September 14, 2013.   That was the last time Louisville had beaten UK in either baseball, basketball, football, or softball.  Ironically, that drought came to an end last night in a weather delayed and rain soaked regional final at Jim Patterson Stadium.  UofL defeated their arch rival 4-1 in what turned to be a very heated match-up as the benches nearly cleared twice after violent home plate collisions.  Before that drama however, the Cards were led by freshman Josh Rogers, who earlier in the year, lost two decisions...Continue reading »

Photo – @ULFlyingCard The Cardinal Nine got the job done after a lengthy rain delay and late start at Jim Patterson Stadium, beating Kent State, 5-0.  UofL ace Kyle Funkhouser was dealing all night long, retiring 15 batters in a row at one point, while striking out 10.  He went 8 innings and gave up just four hits.  The Cards (46-15) will play Kansas (35-24) at 5:00 in the winner’s bracket after the Jayhawks took care of UK, 10-6.  The Cayuts will play the Golden Flashes at 1:00 in an elimination game this afternoon.  Limited...Continue reading »
