Which team, if any, will produce the ACC’s most surprising upset in 2014?  Florida State and Clemson managed to get through last season without stumbling into any traps, as FSU went undefeated en route to the national title, and Clemson’s only two losses were to top-10 teams.  Will Louisville be able to derail the ACC’s heavyweights?...Continue reading »

Cal showing why it’s a “Player’s First” program Let’s be honest.  The vibe from the majority of CardNation hasn’t been very positive in regards to Louisville’s match-up with Kentucky.  To say that UK will have a size advantage would be a huge understatement.  They used that to their advantage when the two teams met in Lexington this past December.  UK dominated the Cards on the backboard and in the paint, overcoming an early 8-0 UofL lead to win their fifth meeting out of their last six against...Continue reading »

Lee averaged 13.6 ppg and 8.6 rpg while often playing out of position due to Temple’s lack of depth. Temple transfer Anthony Lee told ESPN.com that he...Continue reading »

(Photo- Yahoo Sports) I think I classify as what some big blue fans might call “annoying.”  Hell even my wife would say it.  I’m the guy that always brings it hard in rivalry arguments, defending my team ’til the end.  This has obviously led to a big red bullseye on my head on mornings like today.  Every blue coworker and friend are giving me grief about having to play UK this Friday night.  It’s looking like it could be a long, uncertain week to say the least. So with that said, if I’m going to survive...Continue reading »
