  It was another week and the same narrative for the Louisville football team as the defense dominated all four quarters while the offense struggled to move the ball. “(The offense is) still a work in progress,” Petrino said following the game. “Thank God we have a great defense.” Yet, while the offense again struggled, they also displayed signs of life. With QB Will Gardner out with a knee injury, freshman QB Reggie Bonnafon stepped in, and while he made his fair share of freshman mistakes, he made several big...Continue reading »

Here’s a look at Louisville’s win from the Wake Forest perspective via the Winston-Salem Journal: *Deacs defense played well. “I thought our defense played their hearts out,” Coach Dave Clawson said. “And it’s the same story on offense. We really struggle to block people. “We get overwhelmed up front.” Freshman quarterback John Wolford threw two interceptions deep in Louisville territory, and the Wake Forest running game, for the third time this season, was held to negative yardage. But with defensive tackle Tylor...Continue reading »

*It wasn’t pretty, but the Cards got the ‘W’ and improved to 4-1 overall and 2-1 in the ACC. *RB Brandon Radcliff emerged as someone ready to take the reigns as the starter, rushing for 129 yards on 17 carries with 2 TDs.  His 4th quarter 15-yard run that carried virtually the entire Wake defense brought the PJCS crowd to their feet and fired up the offensive line. *Reggie Bonnafon – who just a week ago buried his father – went 16-32 for 206 yards through the air and 46 yards on 14 carries.  He displayed poise *The...Continue reading »

Here are the keys to the game and what to watch for as the Cards hope to get back above .500 in the ACC.   Opponent Breakdown The Demon Deacons come in to Louisville with a 2-2 record.

Defense has been the team’s strong point this season, as they come...Continue reading »

When the financial earnings reports came out this summer for all the shoe companies, it showed adidas trailing not only Nike, but Under Armour as well.  That message was received and now it appears adidas is on the offensive to change it as they’ve lured three of Nike’s top designers. On Wednesday, Adidas said it had hired Marc Dolce, Denis Dekovic and Mark Miner to work at a new shoe design studio in Brooklyn. Adidas has been struggling globally and in the U.S., losing market share to Nike and Under Armour. It’s now the...Continue reading »

After seeing the shot Will Gardner took that put him out of the game last weekend, it wasn’t a surprise that he wouldn’t be playing this Sat against Wake Forest. Following the emotional week that Reggie Bonnafon and the rest of his family endured, the last thing on his mind would be whether or not he’d get the starting nod.  Fast forward to today and here we are; the hometown kid starting for the hometown school.  The next two weeks are crucial for the remainder of the season.  The Cards face opponents that they should...Continue reading »

  The Louisville men’s basketball program has unveiled their new uniforms for the 2014-2015 season and the results are……shall we say……mixed? Twitter and Facebook just exploded with comments from UofL fans who appear to be split down the middle (as they were with the football uni’s that were just released for the Florida State game) when it comes to the team’s new look. In my opinion, the shorts look like a weird 80’s convergence of the old Cardinal bird head and the thick stripes of the...Continue reading »

Teddy makes his first NFL start on Sunday, and one thing’s for sure, his coaches are confident in his abilities.  Head Coach Mike Zimmer and OC Norv Turner have heaped praise on him from the day his was drafted, and that trend has continued leading up to the Vikings game against the Falcons.  The fact that the Bridgewater Era is beginning faster than anyone anticipated hasn’t fazed the Vikings coaches.  And don’t be surprised if that confidence spills out into the team this weekend as they rally around the rookie from...Continue reading »

  After what appears to be a highly successful in-home visit with 5-star Columbia, SC., shooting guard Perry Dozier, Rick Pitino and the Louisville Cardinals are right back in the mix. Pitino had quite a bit of ground to make up after the program essentially stopped recruiting Dozier a few weeks back, following the commitment of fellow 5-star recruit Antonio Blakeney. However, UofL’s head coach can be highly persuasive and, according to Steve Jones of the Courier Journal (who caught up with Dozier’s father, Perry Sr.), last...Continue reading »

It was confirmed to today that Vikings starting QB Matt Cassell will be out for the year.  That means the Bridgewater era will begin a lot sooner than originally thought.  It should come to no surprise that Teddy is welcoming the spot light because his dream of starting in the NFL is now realized.  His teammates share his confidence because of watching him conduct his business on a daily basis in practice and in the film room.  It’s Teddy Time. “We’ve seen him since OTAs and throughout the season so far,” center John Sullivan...Continue reading »

The C-J’s Jeff Greer graded the team through the first four games this year.  (It’s hard to believe the season is already one-third complete).  You’ll see that if he was a teacher, he’d be pretty fair. This is surprisingly the area of biggest concern for the Cardinals. Louisville’s pass protection is now its Achilles’ heel. Out of 128 FBS teams, U of L ranks 112th in the nation in tackles for loss allowed (28) and ranks 116th in sacks allowed, with 12 in four games. The U of L quarterbacks rate 69th in...Continue reading »
