  Wow. In the “news that comes out of left f–ing field” category, this is pretty much at the top of the list. According to an official UofL press release, starting in 2014, the annual Governor’s Cup game featuring Louisville and Kentucky will now be the final game of the season. Next year, when the game moves back to Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium, it will be played on November 29th (Thanksgiving weekend). Here are a few quotes form Louisville AD Tom Jurich and ACC commissioner John Swofford on the big move: “I...Continue reading »

  Throughout the summer, USA Today columnist Paul Myerberg has been doing a college football countdown in which he ranks every Division-1 team from 125 all the way to #1. Today he’s down to the 16th and 15th teams, respectively, and Louisville made a surprise / early appearance. Myerberg ranked the Cards 16th, just in front of Michigan (18th) and LSU (17th). This is probably the lowest I’ve seen anyone rank Teddy and the boys, and we’ve linked countless website rankings and hypothetical polls throughout the last month...Continue reading »

We as Cards fans know how great the Yum! Center is, but it seems lately that the home of the national champions has only been discussed as a venue that has been losing money hand-over-fist.  Now that trend seems to be changing as the arena has recorded higher than expected profits.  The arena’s management group AEG reported that after the fiscal year ended on June 30th that it had made over a million dollars more than had originally been projected. Dennis Petrullo, the arena’s general manager and an employee of Los Angeles-based...Continue reading »

(Photo – Times Picayune)   There have been lots of national writers jumping on the Louisville train in recent weeks and plenty of pundits agree that the Cards have what it takes to potentially run the table and at least get back to another BCS bowl game. But what about the flaws of teams like Louisville, Oregon, Alabama, Ohio State and Stanford? Every team possesses a weakness in which their opponents will try to attack and exploit.

Many of those same draft boards have Louisville’s Teddy Bridgewater going high in the first round as well, often as the first QB taken. But Vinnie Iyer of The Sporting News took things a step further yesterday by releasing this column in which he outlines the reasons why Bridgewater should...Continue reading »

One of which, Jaylen Johnson, will take an official visit to Louisville on September 20th. Jones reports that Johnson will also take officials to Iowa State on September 13th and Oregon on September 27th.
