  Two days following the most wholesome, sacred day of the year spent loving friends and family, friends will refrain from speaking to one another, brother will be against brother, father against son, even husband against wife in some cases. That’s right, ladies and gents, we have once again come to the day of the year where the entire state is put on display, for better or for worse. The Louisville-Kentucky basketball game tips off at 2 PM Saturday afternoon. Kentucky has been hyped along the same lines as the UCLA teams of the...Continue reading »

*The Cards have been dominated recently by the evil empire – losing 6 of the last 7 – but both schools have experienced a ton of success in roughly the same span.  UofL has two Final Fours, a national title, and a Sweet 16.  The Cats have a title and two Final Fours as well since the 2011-12 season. Here are some of the more interesting numbers about the rivalry and other tidbits heading into tomorrow’s massive tilt: *Louisville trails in the series, 32-15. *Since winning the original “Dream Game” in 1983, Louisville...Continue reading »

  There was a flurry of activity as far as Louisville football news was concerned yesterday, and here’s what you need to know to get you caught up. *Dyer won’t play in the Belk Bowl because he’s academically ineligible.  Outside of big games against NC State and Florida State, he had a pretty underwhelming stint here at UofL.  Often injured, wasn’t very consistent, and didn’t seem to really enjoy himself here. Dyer, the former Auburn star who transferred to Louisville last year from Arkansas Baptist College,...Continue reading »

  After being taken to task by both coach Rick Pitino and team leader Montrezl Harrell following a lackluster performance against UNC-Wilmington, Louisville took better control of the ball at Western Kentucky but still left much to be desired. The ball movement was still on the slow side and the guards were not distributing the ball well, but the team got to see first hand what life would be like without Harrell, who was ejected after being goaded into an almost-punch by WKU players. It gave young players like Anas Mahmoud a chance to...Continue reading »

The Cards will depart for Charlotte on Wednesday, so some of the players took time to meet with assembled media to give an update on how practice is going.  Jamon Brown, Brandon Radcliff, and Jake Smith each shared their thoughts on the December 30th match-up against Georgia. Jamon Brown (On bowl preparation) “It’s going pretty well. Today we actually started getting towards the game plan. Last week we got to really work on our system, learning our schemes and everything. Now we’re starting to really get focused on Georgia.” (Preparing...Continue reading »

One of the best recruits in UofL’s 2015 class is still committed to Louisville, but 4-star dual threat QB Lamar Jackson isn’t finished with the recruiting process.  According to the Orlando Sentinel, he will visit Florida on January 23rd.  He plans on visiting UofL and Mississippi State as well, but those dates haven’t been finalized. Lamar Jackson has had his mind set on Louisville since he committed to the Cardinals on Aug. 30. The Boynton Beach quarterback, who some have compared to Teddy Bridgewater as a high school...Continue reading »

  With only a week left in the NFL regular season, former Cards great and current Minnesota Vikings rookie QB Teddy Bridgewater has proven despite all logic, all reason, and all forms of rational thinking that an NFL pro day is actually NOT the best measuring stick when evaluating NFL talent. Shocking, I know, but as it turns out, how a player actually plays the game is remarkably valuable when it comes to predicting how a player will continue to play the game. The most accurate passer in college football in 2013 has continued his high...Continue reading »

While Trez’s brief scrap doesn’t count as a brawl by any stretch, it got me thinking about some games back in the day when the benches did in fact clear.  Most notably from the good ol’ Metro Conference days in heated exchanges between the Cards and Gamecocks as well as Louisville and Florida State.

The staff has made it a point to address immediate needs with players from the JUCO ranks.  Last night came news that Louisville landed another prospect that will be here for spring ball to compete for the spot Gerald Christian will leave after the Belk Bowl.  That player is Cole Hikutini, who was verbally committed to Purdue before flipping to UofL.  You can watch Cole’s highlight film HERE. Cole Hikutini, a tight end from City College of San Francisco, committed to the Cardinals over Purdue Saturday night. Hikutini verbally committed...Continue reading »

*The Cards won in a rowdy environment and overcame a Harrell ejection to win 76-67. *The all-time series between UofL and WKU is now tied at 39.  UofL has won 23 out of the last 26 games. *Trez posted 14 points (just under half of the team’s 29 points at the half) and 6 boards before being tossed. *In Harrell’s absence, Terry Rozier took over, scoring a career high 32 points and adding 5 rebounds.  He went 3-6 from 3 and 11-13 from the FT line and had a stretch in the second half when he scored 14 straight points. *Chris Jones...Continue reading »

  After a sloppy win over UNC-Wilmington Sunday night that impressed no one, Rick Pitino and his Louisville Cardinals hit the road for their first true road game of the season as they travel to Bowling Green, KY for a showdown with the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers. The Cards may be 9-0 on the season and the #4 team in the country, but most talk surrounding Pitino’s squad this season has been critical rather than complimentary. The team shooting percentage is a paltry 44% from the field, an even worse 27.5% from three-point range,...Continue reading »

The ACC Bloggers released their bowl predictions and UofL was among the teams they thought will take care of business in the postseason.  The ACC will look to build off its strong regular season with a good showing in the bowl games.  The staff gives their predictions on all the ACC games – do you agree? Fortuna: Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Grantham will have his work cut out for him in trying to stop a Bulldogs offense that’s No. 8 nationally in scoring (41.7 ppg), but his defensive unit has been among the...Continue reading »

  After a year and half of limited playing time coupled with nagging injuries, Louisville sophomore forward Agau will transfer at the end of the semester, according to a release from UofL. There was a rumor floating around a few days ago that Chris Jones was the embattled Cardinal potentially on the verge of transferring (which was absurd and never made sense from the get-go), but as it turns out, it was Agau. The Nebraska native just never quite got over the hump during his stint here, battling a sports hernia injury all summer and getting...Continue reading »
