The No. 21 Louisville Cardinals capped off their highly successful inaugural ACC season with 10 players named to an All-ACC team.  Gerod Holliman was named to the first team, while Lorenzo Mauldin made the second.  DeVante Parker was a third team selection even though he played just 5 games.  The argument could be made that he should have been a first teamer based on his production. The defending national champion and nationally-second-ranked Seminoles placed 17 members on the squad, including 10 first-team selections, as voted upon by...Continue reading »

Andrea Adelson absolutely nailed it in her Fact/Spin piece on the ACC’s domination of the SEC this past Saturday.  She detailed the double standard associated with the ACC and how it’s all but impossible for the league to get its rightful props.  SEC homers will point out that the ACC won only one game it wasn’t favored in, but you don’t hear that angle when the SEC wins. Fact: The ACC went 4-0 against the SEC on Saturday, the first time in 14 years it swept its conference rivals. Spin: But it was against the miserable...Continue reading »

Since this is the first year of the new CFB Playoff era, the bowl selection process became much more complex.  The end result hopes to be competitive and compelling math-ups for TV while allowing fans to travel in droves to watch their specific team.  However, the process to determine those games with the Big Ten, Big 12, SEC, and Pac-12 among others is new and tricky all the same.  Hopefully this will help you out in you’re wanting to zero in what bowl game the Cards will be in before the games are announced this Sunday. It all will...Continue reading »

The ACC had a wildly successful Saturday as they went a perfect 4-0 against the SEC.  While that’s great for the ACC, it rules out the Orange Bowl for Louisville. Assuming Florida State beats Georgia Tech in the ACC Championship, the Noles will be in the Playoff while the Jackets will be the representative in the Orange.  Clemson – provided they are ranked above Louisville in Tuesday’s CFB Playoff Poll – should be the selection in the Russell Athletic.  That leaves the TaxSlayer in Jacksonville on January 2nd (formerly...Continue reading »

*This game had it all.  Trash talk, pregame pushing and shoving, and a surprisingly close finish.  The 5-7 Cats came out on the PJCS turf and stomped on the bird, taunted the fans, but gave UofL all they wanted before losing once again to Louisville. *Louisville now leads the modern series 13-8 and are winners of four straight.  Coach Petrino improved to 5-0 against UK as UofL’s head coach. *Reggie Bonnafon struggled before suffering a knee injury, completing just 1 of 4 passes for 8 yards.  He had 5 rushes for no gain (including...Continue reading »

  Coming on the  heels of an adrenaline-inducing thriller of a win at Notre Dame, Louisville hopes to keep that momentum Saturday at noon as they take on rival Kentucky. Without a doubt, the two teams have gone in completely opposite directions this season. UK started the season somewhat strong, showing a much improved unit from the previous year, and they started the year 5-1 with their only loss being a triple OT loss to Florida in Gainesville. Since then, though, the reality that UK had not played any quality teams hit the team like...Continue reading »

It’s not even December yet, but that doesn’t stop the mock drafts from coming out.  And according to the most recent one from NBADraft.net, two Cards are projected to be lottery picks, while another one is slated to be taken late in the second round.  Trez and Terry are your first round draft picks – with Harrell going 6th and Rozier be picked 11th.  In what could easily be called a surprise, the folks at this website project Chris Jones to be taken 58th overall. Again, this is all incredibly early, but at least for now...Continue reading »

Saturday has turned into an ACC-SEC showdown as four games between the two leagues will be played against bitter in-state rivals.  Out of those four match-ups, three ACC teams are favored to win; Clemson, FSU, and Louisville.  Those teams go up against an opponent that isn’t ranked.  The Georgia Tech (No. 16) – Georgia (No.9) clash is the only game to feature two teams that are ranked. The SEC East is down, so even if the ACC comes out on top this weekend, the buzz won’t be as loud, but nevertheless, it’s a great...Continue reading »

Saturday’s Governor’s Cup clash will serve as a major recruiting weekend for Coach Petrino and staff.  In addition to several in-state prospects, a few 4-star visitors will be attending the game as well.  JUCO CB Rasul Douglas, RB Ke’Shawn Vaughn, and OL Josh Wariboko are the top rated recruits visiting this weekend.  Also visiting are current commit WR Dahu Green and early signee Traveon Samuel. Currently, UofL’s 2015 class is ranked 31st nationally and 6th in the ACC. As is the case with recruiting, more news generally...Continue reading »
