Photo – Kelly Kline The C-J’s Steve Jones caught up Quentin Snider and asked him about his decision to decommit from Illinois and sign with Louisville.  The 6’1 point guard from Ballard was candid with his answers and offered a lot of insight of what went on in the days leading up to his return to the hometown team. What was last week like for you and making a change to Louisville? It was a big change. Illinois did a real great job of recruiting me. Their head coach and the staff, it was good, but my heart was still at Louisville....Continue reading »

Photo – AP Kevin Ware is a man who has been in the news – a lot.  From his horrific injury to recovery; his exhibition debut to his first official game back, Ware is a household name in every sports fans’ family.  But unlike the feel-good national headlines he had been getting, his traffic mishap is bringing a ton of negative press to UofL.  Getting a speeding ticket isn’t a huge deal.  Chances are you, like I, have gotten one as well.  However, if you don’t use good judgement and drive 40 MPH over the speed...Continue reading »

(Photo – Adidas / Canarias)   I mean… talk about out of nowhere. When Rick Pitino finally announced his 2014 recruiting class last Thursday (after the late addition of Ballard star Quentin Snider) he hinted that perhaps the class wasn’t finished and that it was possible to see the team bring in one last piece to the puzzle. Most people around the situation thought that player was going to be 6’11, Wichita (KS) center, Bakary Konate, who visited Louisville two weeks ago. However, in a complete stunner, the...Continue reading »

(Photo – USA Today)   As Louisville fans bickered amongst themselves whether the offense needed fixing or not after the Houston win, what may have slid under the radar Saturday night was that for the third straight game, Louisville running back Michael Dyer did not carry the football. While he did see time at kick returner, he was not once present in the Cards backfield.
