After a somewhat inconsistent start to his 2014-2015 campaign, Louisville sophomore combo guard Terry Rozier has turned up his level of play recently and now looks to be one of the best all-around backcourt players in the nation. For the entire season Rozier is averaging 17.8 ppg, 5.3 rebounds and 2.5 assists. However, his play over the last 12 games has been nothing short of spectacular. In fact, over that 12-game stretch (starting with Indiana and ending with Pitt), Rozier is averaging 20.6 points per game and has kept his field goal...Continue reading »
UofL got a big ACC road win last night and now sits at 5th in the league. Louisville’s record against the RPI Top 50 is just 2-3, but the Cards moved up to 19th . When you take a look at Louisville’s tournament profile, you quickly see there is still more room for improvement. However, with the beast that is the ACC, UofL will get plenty of chances to secure several marquee wins. Teams remaining on Louisville’s schedule in the Top 50: #3 Virginia (twice) #11 North Carolina #36 Notre Dame #38 Miami (twice) #45 NC State VN:F...Continue reading »
*Some schools simply have another’s number and that is the case with Louisville and Pittsburgh as the Cards ran their mark to 4-1 at Pitt. *In 13 seasons, Pitt has only lost 29 games total in the Peterson Events Center and UofL is responsible for 4 of them. *Louisville shot 65% (yes, you read that correctly) going 30-46 from the field, setting a record for a Pitt opponent. *Terry Rozier hit his first 6 shots en route to a 26-point, 6-assist, and 5-rebound afternoon. *Trez played more like himself, posting 18 points – on...Continue reading »

The wideout from Hollywood, FL was originally committed to Miami before he decided to re-open his recruitment. Spence picked Louisville over Pittsburgh and West Virginia among others. ...Continue reading »
Bobby Petrino and his Louisville football staff are doing all they can to close out the 2015 class on a high note, and after striking out (for the moment) on all of last weekend’s uncommitted visitors, he again will have the chance to woo some high profile prospects the next two weekends. Things have been unfortunately trending the wrong way for Louisville with its top recruits as of late. Top RB prospect Dexter Williams had Louisville among his top schools before visiting Notre Dame, but after that visit, he shut down his recruitment...Continue reading »
We were inundated with the SEC Network this past fall, but it seems as though ESPN and the ACC are getting closer to creating a television partnership. The league will hold its annual winter meetings next week and an update on the potential channel should be on the agenda. Recently, Florida State President John Thrasher and Virginia Tech’s Whit Babcock – mentioned that talks are still ongoing and that the feedback has been positive. While the ACC distributes a little over $20 million a year to its members currently, getting...Continue reading »
ESPN’s Mel Kiper, Jr. originally gave Minnesota a B – for their entire draft class once the selection process ended. However, after the regular season, he bumped the grade up to a B +. No doubt the play of Teddy and LB Anthony Barr played a huge role in the upgrade. The success of the Vikings’ 2014 draft will ultimately lie with the futures of Barr and quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, both of whom the Vikings drafted to be foundational players for their future. Do both players have to turn into stars for the first-round...Continue reading »

I was sitting around talking to a few buddies on Sunday, just about 24 hours removed from the incredible sting of getting smacked around by Duke on our own home floor, when it became pretty apparent (to even the most novice of UofL basketball fans) that this particular loss was hard to swallow. Now, generally speaking, losing to a top-10 team at home or away is nothing too earth-shattering. But again, there were just too many head-scratching moments during Saturday’s loss, 63-52, at the hands of the Blue Devils. And I know it...Continue reading »
Jeff Greer from the Courier Journal talked to Rick Pitino yesterday about Montrezl Harrell and his role on the team. Pitino informed Mr. Greer that he is not a captain on the basketball team anymore. While this may be coming as a surprise, if you look at the stats, Harrell is not putting up the production that he was putting up at the beginning of the season. Maybe this will give a wake up to Montrezl Harrell and he will go back to putting up the production he was putting up at the beginning of the season. For us to succeed in the ACC, we...Continue reading »

UofL released its 2015 spring roster, and as you would expect, there were a couple of surprises. Most notably, JUCO RB Time Cook wasn’t on it because one class didn’t transfer over. However, all of the other newly signed players are on it. Many fans speculated that Michaelee Harris would return after gaining another year of eligibility, but he’s not listed on the roster either. Here’s the full list for your viewing pleasure. VN:F [1.9.22_1171]please wait...Rating: 5.0/10 (2 votes cast)...
