Photo – AP Chane Behanan and Colorado State made it official yesterday when both parties confirmed his transfer to the school.  The 6’6 forward is still receiving treatment at the John Lucas Rehabilitation Center in Houston, but is enrolled in online courses at CSU.  He will be eligible in December 2014 and immediately becomes one of the top players in the Mountain West Conference.  His 15-point and 12-rebound performance in the national championship game helped UofL cut down the nets last April. “Chane is one of most talented...Continue reading »

Coming off of an impressive 12-1 season and entering the ACC in 2014 has definitely generated and maintained a lot of buzz around the Louisville football program. Adding in the coaching change and some really exciting recruiting news has the anticipation for next season palpable. The position group that excites me the most for the inaugural ACC season are the wide receivers and tight ends. Cardinals fans everywhere are well aware of the kind of numbers that Bobby Petrino’s teams put up offensively in his first stint at The Ville and Bobby...Continue reading »

Photo – 247sports The second recruiting weekend under Coach Petrino has netted a new and very important commitment.  Massive 6’8, 315 lb. OL Kelby Johnson committed to UofL before returning to New York today. Johnson, who will have two years of eligibility at UofL, played this past season at ASA College.  He also saw action as a true freshman at Virginia before he transferred.  Johnson picked Louisville over offers from Ole Miss, Purdue, Kansas, and others. This prospect will get the chance to start immediately as his size and...Continue reading »

Photo – lakernation.com Playing in Turkey wasn’t something T-Will planned on doing after a fairly successful stint with the Celtics in the second half of the season last year.  Like in several occasions prior, Williams couldn’t get out of his own way, or the law.  This time, Williams allegedly brought a gun with him when he and his son’s mother met for the exchange of the child.  The charges were later dropped, but Boston wasn’t in the mood to put up with his drama and released him. When he left the team in...Continue reading »

Photo — TC Palm Shaquille Jones, a 6’2, 175 lb cornerback out of Merritt Island, Florida, committed to U of L three days ago. Yes, he’s a two star but it’s a good pick up for the Cards. Louisville is looking to add depth to its secondary after losing standout safeties Hakeem Smith (graduation) and Calvin Pryor (NFL draft). Looking at his highlights, Jones is physical, can intercept and break up passes, and hits very hard. Jones is also a major weapon on special teams, as evidenced by his several take backs for touchdowns...Continue reading »

(Photo – Associated Press) After losing 2 of its past 4 previous games, the Louisville basketball team struggled to beat a good (not great) SMU basketball team at home by a score of just 71-63. That game, played a little over a week ago, marked the team’s 4th lowest point total of the season, and while the Cards finished the game with 16 assists, they also committed 15 turnovers. A Louisville team who looked so hot at the beginning of the season was appearing to lose its swagger, and after that game, coach Rick Pitino made two...Continue reading »

Photo – si.cnn.com As first reported by Scout.com’s Jason Higdon, Clint Hurtt is leaving Louisville for a job with the Chicago Bears.  Footballscoop.com is reporting that it is an assistant defensive line coach position.  Unless Hurtt didn’t mesh well with Petrino and the new staff, this is a puzzling move.  Back in October, UofL AD Tom Jurich took to Clint’s defense and retained him even when the NCAA slapped him with a “show cause” penalty.  With that, Hurtt wasn’t able to go out on the recruiting...Continue reading »

 (Photo – SI.com via AP) Since Bobby Petrino was once again named Louisville’s head coach on January 9th of this year, the key plot elements of the story have mainly surrounded his character. The eerie resemblance to the tale of the Prodigal Son. How crazy Tom Jurich is for hiring him back and how insane the fans are for welcoming him with open arms after all he did. A subplot, or rather an afterthought, of the hiring has been the fact that the man is a damn fine football coach. Some in the media, like Sports Illustrated’s...Continue reading »
