I have no idea how it works or how it is calculated, but the Cards-Noles tilt last night garnered a 3.5 overnight rating which was the highest of the college football season on ESPN.  After the nation saw the 21-7 Louisville lead at half, college football fans everywhere were glued to their television sets in hopes of watching an upset. Additionally, this game was the second largest draw for those watching it on the WatchESPN app. Last nigh'ts Florida State – Louisville game delivered 3.5 overnight rating – best for CFB game...Continue reading »

Three straight 30-win seasons and based on today’s AP preseason poll, UofL is projected to continue its success.  The Cards ranked 8th and are one of four ACC schools in the top 10 (Duke is 4th, UNC is 6th, and UVA is 9th).  The 5th team from UofL’s new league that is ranked – Syracuse – comes in at No. 23. Other Louisville opponents ranked in the preseason AP Poll are UK (#1) and Ohio State (#20). VN:F [1.9.22_1171]please wait...Rating: 10.0/10 (1 vote cast)...

A few weeks ago, UofL secured a verbal commitment from 4-star QB Keaton Torre.  This morning, 4-star WR Desmond Fitzpatrick gave his verbal pledge to Petrino and Co.  The 6’2/185 lb. wideout had offers from Cincinnati, Illinois, Kentucky among others.  You can check out his impressive highlight film here. The 3 commitments in the 2016 class is 3rd in the ACC and 16th nationally, according to 247Sports. I am excited to announce that I have committed to play at the University of Louisville! #blessed #GoCards pic.twitter.com/s2eAVTqyej —...Continue reading »

*The atmosphere was electric, the fans were fantastic, and the Cards went toe-to-toe with the defending national champs in front of a rowdy PJCS crowd of 55,414, the second largest all-time. *In front of 34 NFL scouts and numerous GMs, DeVante Parker showed why he’ll be a first round pick in May’s NFL Draft, hauling in 8 catches for 214 yards. *Michael Dyer continued looking like the back he was at Auburn, running 28 times for 134 yards and 3 TDs. *Will Gardner played his best (full) game of the season completing 20-38 passes for...Continue reading »

So last year I shared with you guys a few pretty awesome / fairly inappropriate last minute Halloween costumes for your kids and it seemed to go over pretty well. As such, I figured why not do it again? Only this time I wanted to amp up the inappropriateness and really showcase some of the most moronic and completely inexplicable images you’ll ever see. Then again this is America and people are just stupid by the law of averages. Anyway, if you’re a last-minute kind of guy (and really, if you have a penis, chances are you fit that...Continue reading »

  This game, this atmosphere, this night is what Louisville fans have been pining for ever since the old Big East dissolved. Florida State, the defending national champion and the #2 team in the country will take the field at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium to play the Cards in what is the most hyped Louisville home game since the West Virginia blackout game of 2006. While that game was huge, this one has a different feel to it. In the West Virginia game, it was more about two top-5 teams with national championship hopes slugging it out...Continue reading »

Lost in the hype – to some extent – of today’s huge game with FSU was the ACC’s Media Day.  Louisville’s Montrezl Harrell and Wayne Blackshear joined Coach Pitino in Greensboro, NC for the school’s first ever ACC “Operation Basketball”. *Former Big East foe Syracuse has some advice for UofL entering the ACC. The Orange finished second, behind Virginia, in their first trip through the ACC. The Panthers were fifth and the Irish tied for 11th. I asked two Syracuse players, guard Trevor Cooney and...Continue reading »

  I can still remember reading some of the toxic Georgia message boards when Louisville announced that it was hiring Todd Grantham to be the football program’s next defensive coordinator. After a season in which the Bulldogs were decimated by injuries, UGA finished 45th in total defense nationally in 2013, and apparently that was bad enough to crucify him locally. And I’ll admit, when Grantham was hired and given a robust 5 year contract at $1 million per year, it certainly made me raise an eyebrow. But the Bulldogs’...Continue reading »

On the field, he’s a superstar.  A Heisman Trophy winner and a defending national champion.  Off the field, he’s a disaster, constantly in the news for all the wrong reasons.  With Winston walking off with crab legs several months ago, it made him an easy target to make fun of.  The ol’ intertronz is a trove of photoshopped gems and we’ve found a sampling of some of the more humorous ones…. And a GIF to close things out…. Go Cards. VN:F [1.9.22_1171]please wait...Rating: 10.0/10 (5 votes cast)...
