Photo – UofL reportedly picked up another Florida Gator transfer in OL Ian Silberman yesterday, and there could be another addition soon.  Senior QB Tyler Murphy has graduated from UF and is looking at another school to finish his career.  He’s interested in the Cards and future ACC rival Boston College.  The BC connection exists because of their HC Steve Addazio, who recruited him while he was an assistant at UF.  If Teddy leaves, Murphy would step right in and battle Will Gardner for the starting job.  At worst,...Continue reading »

Photo – AP The fact that he is even considering returning to Louisville for his senior season is a testament to his character.  With that said, Teddy will make his decision on whether to return to UofL or head off to the NFL a couple of days after the Bowl game.  Bridgewater – who will go down in UofL history as the greatest QB ever – has been projected as the first signal caller to be taken in May’s NFL Draft.  What’s more, other top QBs like Oregon’s Marcus Mariota and Baylor’s Bryce Petty have...Continue reading »

As first reported by, the 3-star 6’4 235-pound prospect gave his verbal commitment to Coach Strong Monday Night.  He figures to get immediate playing time since Marcus Smith, the nation’s second leading sack master graduates.  Young comes from Iowa Western C.C., the same school that current TE Ryan Hubbell attended.  On the season, he totaled...Continue reading »

(Photo – Associated Press) Charlie Strong and his staff have struck again. Joining a flurry of other players looking to leave the current dumpster-fire that is the Florida football program, offensive lineman Ian Silberman has reportedly transferred to Louisville. The 6-5, 305 lb, Silberman has already graduated, but still has one year of eligibility remaining (which means he will not have to sit out a year under NCAA rules). He should be a nice, immediate addition to an offensive line that needs plenty of quality depth. Silberman was...Continue reading »

(Photo – USA Today)   Just like the previous two seasons, you better get used to seeing Charlie Strong’s name tossed around whenever there’s an opening at a powerhouse football school. The latest speculation comes via USA Today in which they examine the top-5 candidates for the newly-vacant Texas job, which is perhaps the very best in all of college football. Before the Longhorns’ head man, Mack Brown, officially stepped down this weekend, there was rampant speculation that Alabama’s Nick Saban was the University’s...Continue reading »

Sack master Marcus Smith will be graduating this year. Lorenzo Mauldin, Deiontrez Mount and B.J. Dubose will be seniors in 2014, so bringing in some quality defensive ends is a high priority for Charlie Strong and his staff. The Cards do have some really good underclassmen at ends with guys like Sheldon Rankins and Nick Dawson, along with two freshmen that red shirted this year and have solid futures (De’Asian Richardson, 6-foot-3, 285 lbs and Stacy Thomas, 6-foot-1, 237 lbs.). You can never really have enough defensive linemen and with...Continue reading »
