  The buzz around Louisville sophomore-to-be Terry Rozier has certainly been palpable this summer, as rumors out of camp have suggested that he’s ready to take his game to a completely different level this coming season. And while that’s not really a surprise to UofL fans that saw him blossom into a reliable force as a freshman last year, it appears that the national media are beginning to take notice. First, John Lucas, the former NBA great, was impressed by his play at the LeBron James skill camp earlier this month and then...Continue reading »

The hot name associated with Louisville basketball recruiting right now is  Donovan Mitchell.  The 6’2 combo guard has blown up this summer during the AAU season, catching the eye of several other big time schools.  The latest elite program to offer Mitchell is Kansas, who received an offer from Coach Self after he watched him a couple of weeks ago.  With his recruitment at an all-time high, it’s time for Mitchell to trim his list.  His plan is by this weekend to cut his list to 10, then to 5 by the end of August.  He’ll...Continue reading »

  Shocking, I know. For the second consecutive time, the Kentucky Wildcats have failed to sell their allotment of tickets for the annual Gov’s Cup when held in Louisville. Two years ago the Cats returned 2,060 tickets after their fanbase failed to scoop them up. This time it appears to be about the same, as early reports yesterday indicated that the perennial SEC cellar dweller sent back an estimated 2,000 tickets, which will now be made available to UofL fans.Here’s the email you most likely received or saw floating around...Continue reading »

*Coach Petrino was interviewed by AL.com and he told them how the city of Louisville is used to entice potential recruits to become Cardinals. His tactic is simple: Play up the vibrancy of the school’s home city. “The number one thing we need to do with young men from the state of Alabama is just get them here, and get them on our campus,” Petrino says. “They like it here, they like the fact we have a city and it’s a very diverse place. They feel very comfortable.” If he can get them there. Before Thingstad...Continue reading »

We knew it.  We all did.  After Teddy’s “average” pro day, every UofL fan knew he was still the best QB in the 2014 NFL Draft.  Teddy had to endure the numerous “experts” saying he wasn’t as good as they has first thought.  It is pretty irresponsible to base the vast majority of the negative remarks off of one day that had Teddy – in shorts and a t-shirt with no pass rush – throwing to receivers without pads in a scripted workout.  Most everyone ignored the two-plus years of actual game...Continue reading »

The Detroit Pistons didn’t pick-up the second year option in Peyton Siva’s contract, but it didn’t take that long for another team to scoop him up.  According to the Orlando Sentinel, Siva has come to terms with the Orlando Magic.  However, the team will waive him before the start of the season and assign him to their D-League affiliate. By signing him now, the Magic will be able to retain their rights to him even after they waive him prior to the start of the regular season.  Knowing Siva’s professional attitude...Continue reading »

  After an up-and-down freshman season in which he played limited minutes and, even at one point was suspended indefinitely by Rick Pitino, it appears that Louisville power forward Akoy Agau will have to face yet another temporary obstacle. Agau posted a photo on his instagram account today that stated he was in Philadelphia and about to undergo surgery for a sports hernia.

Louisville head coach Rick Pitino followed Blakeney all throughout the Peach Jam last week and then was front and center for all of his games here in town this past weekend at the AAU Nationals. The Cards, along with Florida State, Missouri, Oregon, Kentucky, LSU and USC, comprise his final list. The most glaring omission has to be Florida, as the Gators and Billy...Continue reading »
