Two Louisville basketball signees, Shaqquan Aaron and Jaylen Johnson, earned individual accolades yesterday. Aaron was named to the 2014 Star Times boys team, and Johnson earned finalist honors for the Michigan Mr. Basketball award. Here’s the blurb on Aaron: Shaqquan Aaron 6-6, Sr., Rainier Beach Aaron’s ability to score is surpassed by none other, but his unique ability to see the court well and find an open teammate off the dribble separates the senior from other players. The Louisville commit averaged more than 20 points, eight...Continue reading »

LSL is on a Tuesday night this week since the Cards play SMU on Wednesday.  The guys will be analyzing the late game meltdowns and discussing options for improvement when a tight game situation arises again.  They’ll also be breaking down the AAC regular season race and the commitment of 7’2 Anas Mahmoud.  At 7:00 the guys will be joined by CBS national college basketball columnist / analyst Gary Parrish to get his take on the Cards and their chances moving forward in March. Also, with spring football right around the corner,...Continue reading »

Spring football begins on March 18, just two weeks away.  With that, some questions will look to be addressed.  For Louisville, the major question will be how they will adjust to life in the ACC.  Sports Illustrated and College Football News chimed in with their spring football primers. From SI: Louisville: How will the Cardinals adapt to change in their first year in the ACC? Louisville sat on top of the world entering the 2013 campaign: a Heisman candidate at quarterback; a head coach who had won 25 games over three years and was fresh...Continue reading »

(Photo – fiba.com) At times this season, UofL’s frontcourt has been exposed by bigger, more athletic opposition. It’s been the one thing this team has not been able to overcome due to a relatively thin frontcourt. However, as the Cards get set to enter into ACC play next year, it doesn’t appear that height will be a problem much longer. Today Coach P got a commitment from Egyptian 7’2 big man Anas Mahmoud and built upon an already-enormous class. According to ESPN, he’s a 4-star prospect and ranked 69th...Continue reading »

(Photo – Veronica Henri / QMI Agency) Former Louisville quarterback Brian Brohm was acquired by the Winnipeg Blue Bombers today of the CFL from the Hamilton Tiger-Cats today for a 2015 conditional draft pick. Brohm, who spent his lone season with the Tiger-Cats stuck on the bench due to an injury, will now contend for the starting QB job for the Blue Bombers along with former BYU QB Max Hall and former University of Buffalo QB Drew Willy as the team starts a new chapter under new head coach Mike O’Shea. This is the latest stop...Continue reading »

Photo – SI.com March Madness is in full effect and the last week of the regular season in the AAC figures to come down to the wire.  Louisville and Cincinnati are tied for the league lead while SMU, Memphis, and UConn are lurking behind, ready to take advantage if a team ahead of them loses.  It would have to take UC and UofL losing both games to get the Huskies and Tigers into the championship mix, but in March, anything can happen.  Let’s take a look at all the teams who have a shot at the title…. LOUISVILLE (13-3) at...Continue reading »

(Photo – AP) It’s a stat that has been thrown around a lot this year, UofL’s porous record against ranked teams.  It currently stands at (1-5); easily one of the worst records Louisville has had against teams in the Top 25.  Another talking point brought up seemingly every day is the play of Wayne Blackshear in those specific games versus ranked teams.  Saturday’s disappointing loss to Memphis was more evidence that Wayne simply won’t be a factor when the Cards play elite competition.  In the games against...Continue reading »

(Photo – Jim Brown / USA Today) Well, we predicted that the Cards would lose this one in our preview, but I can’t remember the last time it felt so wrong to be right. Louisville found a way, yet again, to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory and they continue to find new and intriguing ways to lose big games. With UConn’s win over Cincinnati yesterday, it means that the Cards have just two wins over teams currently ranked inside the Top-25. They’re modus operandi of not being able to figure out long, athletic teams...Continue reading »

(Photo – Nelson Chenault/USA TODAY) *This one stings, no other way to say it.  It wasn’t the 5 OT choke job in South Bend last year, but it was close. *After being up by 8 points with 4:46 left, UofL collectively decided to ignore Montrezl and got outscored 15-1 to end the game.  Russ and Chris forced – and missed – several shots down the stretch and didn’t get the ball inside.  This game was eerily similar to the loss in January in both score (73-67 & 72-66) and how it played out (UofL up in the closing...Continue reading »

Photo – @GoCards Through an open records request, the C-J acquired Coach Petrino’s incentive-laden contract.  His base salary stands at $3 million ($1.5 million each for coaching and media obligations.  He is line for bonuses for on and off the field success like winning conference championships, Top 25 finishes and a high team GPA and APR scores. New University of Louisville football coach Bobby Petrino agreed in January to a six-year contract with a $3 million annual base salary, but bonuses could raise the total to more than...Continue reading »
