(Photo – WDRB.com) In the world of cinema, it is an uncommon occurrence when a sequel to a great movie surpasses, or even matches, the original. For the most part, audiences understand this, for when the original sets a bar so high, it is next to impossible for lightning to strike twice. Yet, a quality film is not too much to ask for, and more often than not, a sequel cannot even deliver that, instead becoming a punchline and smear to its original predecessor. The same can be said for the follow up season to “The Year of the...Continue reading »

Photo – 247Sports You would think that when you are associated with a program that has won a grand total of 4 games in two years and has failed to win a game in the SEC in that same span, you would keep your mouth closed.  That’s not the case up in Lexghanistan where UK OC Neal Brown, the offensive mastermind whose offense put up 16 touchdowns in 9 games against BCS-level competition said the following: “When I first get on the phone (with a recruit) or when a kid first comes here and I’m having my first conversation, that...Continue reading »

(Photo – Mitch Deaver) Junior College QB Pat Thomas has made things official and has signed with the University of Louisville. Thomas, 6’4, 185 lbs, played at Georgia Military Academy last season where he threw for nearly 1700 yards and 18 touchdowns. A dual threat QB who’s just as effective scrambling outside of the pocket as he is throwing from inside it, Thomas visited UofL last week and ultimately chose the Cards over UAB, Troy and South Alabama. While, admittedly, he doesn’t exactly hold the craziest offer sheet,...Continue reading »

(Photo – starnewsonline.com) In an article by College Football Talk, it appears that there’s plenty of discussion going on about the model in which the ACC Network would follow once it launches. Given the additions of UofL and Notre Dame, the story discusses how the ACC may have more potential TV markets than any other conference. The ACC also owns more top 30 markets than any other league nationwide. Working with ESPN to get an ACC Network launched would follow the model that was used to get the SEC Network up and running. An...Continue reading »

(Photo – Keith Srakokic / AP) Before getting started, I want take a quick second and throw a disclaimer out there. I have and always will think it’s incredibly ludicrous and cocky of the rather substantial percentage of UofL fans that have seen it fit to bash Charlie Strong on his way out of Louisville. Could he have handled some of the exit better? Of course. But, the fact is, we owe that man an indescribable debt of gratitude for what he did to completely resurrect the program. It always amazes me how quickly people seem to forget...Continue reading »

Mahmoud committed to the Cards back in early March but had to get transcripts approved and cleared before he could actually ink with the...Continue reading »
