(Photo — 247 Sports)   Justin Crawford, a 3-star running back from Hardaway High School, has committed to the Cards. Crawford, a 6-0, 199 pound prospect, is the second commitment for the Cards’ 2015 recruiting class, joining 4-star quarterback Ross Trail. The Columbus, Georgia native also had an offer from Boston College and was hearing from Auburn, Georgia, and Florida. In 2012 Crawford played in just five games and still managed to run for 825 yards  and 7 touchdowns. He also caught an additional 14 passes and accounted...Continue reading »

Photo – ohio.com When it comes to putting players in the NBA, Louisville is struggling. However, when the 2013-14 NBA season gets underway, UofL will have five players on 15-man NBA rosters.  Here’s a quick preview of the players and their teams. Earl Clark – Cleveland (7.3 ppg; 5.5 rpg last year) Earl parlayed his solid season in Los Angeles into a two year deal that will pay him $9 million at Cleveland.  More importantly, Clark will be starting for the Cavs, so look for him to put up even better numbers this year. Gorgui...Continue reading »

(Photo – USA Today)   Statistical guru Ken Pomeroy of the beloved college basketball site KenPom.com has just released his initial rankings for 2013-2014 season and Louisville is his #1 overall team. Taking a slight (and might I add, extremely rational) turn from the other conventional polls we’ve seen so far, Pomeroy is the first person (or site) to slot the Cards ahead of Kentucky. To counteract the copious amounts of Big Blue cry that will inevitably reign down upon his inbox, Pomeroy posted a nice tongue-in-cheek message...Continue reading »

(Photo – Sports Illustrated)   Finally, some real love for the Based King. After being snubbed from multiple preseason All-American lists (or at best being named a 3rd-Teamer), Sports Illustrated / NBC Sports reporter and columnist Rob Dauster names Russ Smith a 1st Team All-American. Joining Russ on the first team are Julius Randle (Kentucky), Andrew Wiggins (Kansas), Marcus Smart (Oklahoma State) and Doug McDermott (Creighton). Russ Smith, Louisville, Sr.: Smith may not be much of an NBA prospect, but he’s the perfect player...Continue reading »

(Photo – Chris O’Meara, AP)   For just the second time in school history, the Louisville Cardinals went on the road down in Tampa and defeated South Florida. Raymond James Stadium, despite always having a strong showing of UofL faithful, has typically not been a friendly place for our fans, players and coaches alike. But Saturday was a different story. This Louisville team came in focused and ready to make amends for the disappointing home loss to UCF the previous weekend, while South Florida continues to rebuild under a new...Continue reading »

(Photo – Al Messerschmidt / Getty Images)   Despite going on the road and putting the hammer on South Florida yesterday, the Louisville Cardinals dropped in both polls. In the updated AP poll (which, if we’re being honest, means nothing) they slipped to #20 and in the coaches poll (part of the BCS formula) they fell to #17. They did, however, move up one spot in the all-important BCS Rankings, from #20 to #19, and remain four spots ahead of Central Florida who crushed UConn yesterday on the road. At this point, all the Cards...Continue reading »

Photo – al.com Not that UofL fans needed more reasons to be thankful that the Cards are moving to the ACC, but when news came out yesterday that the American created another new bowl game – the Miami Beach Bowl – it hit home once again how big of a deal this departure to the ACC is.  This new bowl game that in a tweet from the American called it “a landmark day for the conference” is a great get for them, but it will be hard for the AAC team fans to get excited about playing a school from the MAC, C-USA, or the...Continue reading »
