Leading Louisville wide receiver James Quick has been suspended indefinitely by Head Coach Bobby Petrino for a violation of team rules. Unspecified reasoning at the time it was announced, Jared Stillman of ESPN Louisville 680 tweeted this shortly after news broke. This is is the second violation this season for Quick as he was also suspended prior to the start of the season and had to work his way back into Petrino’s lineup. We aren’t likely to get an update until Petrino’s Monday presser. Louisville loses DeVante Parker...Continue reading »

  Bouncing back from a gut-wrenching come-from-behind defeat at the hands of a team who was down 21 points in the first half is easier said than done, but it is something that separates the strong-minded teams from the mentally weak. Saturday night at Boston College, Louisville will take the test to determine just what kind of team they are. There is no doubt the Cards were emotionally affected by the Florida State letdown (any team would be), but there is no time to let a loss like that linger. Allowing a loss like that to stick with...Continue reading »

Rewind back to the spring when UofL had just two verbal commitments for the 2015 class.  Many in CardNation were worried that Petrino’s baggage was hampering efforts to entice players to come to Louisville and play in the ACC.  Mike Hughes, publisher of insidetheville.com, did his best on our radio show to calm fears about recruiting being a bust, saying repeatedly to wait and see.  Coach Petrino remained confident that recruiting would pick up at a successful clip too, saying that once the prospects see the play on the field, they’ll...Continue reading »

“Bowl eligible” is term that we’ll hear from the rest of the season.  Courtesy of Matt Sarzyniak, here’s a list of bowl eligible teams heading into today’s action.  As far as the ACC is concerned, there are seven teams who will go bowling so far and all but Wake Forest are still  in play to go to the postseason.  Last year, the ACC put an NCAA-record 11 teams into the postseason and to date, there’s still the potential for that to happen again in 2014.

Three Cards are on the Bleacher Report’s Midseason Top 50 NFL Draft board.  DeVante Parker checks in at 13th overall (second highest among WRs), Gerod Holliman is 21st overall (1st among FS), and Lorenzo Mauldin is 46th and 9th out of DEs.  It’s crazy to think that in just two games Parker made his way up this high.  There’s no doubt that be the end of the season, he’ll be near the top 10 overall and likely the top wideout.  Holliman and Mauldin have each made their case for becoming a first round pick as well. VN:F...Continue reading »

Sports Illustrated continued the trend of Louisville being a national top 10 selection in the numerous preseason polls out there.  Granted, Louisville must play A LOT better than they did in their exhibition to warrant this ranking, but in time they’ll prove worthy of it.  Here’s what the publication had to say about UofL. On April 14, Montrezl Harrell texted coach Rick Pitino, saying that he wanted to enter the NBA draft. Two hours later Harrell changed his mind. In those 120 minutes Louisville went from being a bubble team...Continue reading »
