Photo – @GoCards Louisville legend (we can say that now, right?) Russ Smith was named KenPom’s most efficient player of the year for the second straight year.  Ken Pomeroy goes into detail about how Russ won the award again, giving us even more reason to shake our head about his late second round NBA Draft predictions. Congratulations to the winner of the 2014 player of the year award, Russ Smith of Louisville. Smith earned his second consecutive kPOY by posting a 114 offensive rating while using 31 percent of the Cardinals’...Continue reading »

Photo – AP Russ and Trez (assuming he goes) will hear their names called in June’s NBA Draft.  Luke Hancock hasn’t been listed on any mock drafts and will have to put in work to have a good showing in pre-draft workouts and/or the summer league to have a shot at making a roster.  There’s no doubt he can score the ball, but can he be adequate on defense?  Luke has shown toughness and the great work ethic to achieve a lot in his time at UofL.  That’s why it wouldn’t be surprising to see him get a shot...Continue reading »

At this point it’s pretty safe to say that Coach Bobby Petrino is an offensive genius. He’s a master at developing quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers, etc. But one position that sometimes gets overlooked is the offensive line and, without a doubt, Petrino is second-to-none when it comes to building a physical, cohesive unit up front. Everywhere he’s been, he’s had success with it. During his first tenure at Louisville, six players heard their names called in the NFL draft. Now in his second stint with the Cards,...Continue reading »

Photo – USATI There are two terms synonymous with the off-season: ‘rebuilding’ and ‘reloading’.  When you look at what’s leaving the Louisville program, you’ll see that it favors the side of rebuilding.  There is another Top 10 class coming in, but losing the production and experience of the guys leaving will hurt.

For some strange reason, a Louisville student felt the need to deface his dorm room by hanging up a dirty UK flag – on UofL’s campus. However, his fellow dorm-mates took it upon themselves to exact revenge in a rather clever way after Kentucky lost to UConn last night.  Anyone stupid enough to do this heartily deserves this type of trolling.  Well done Unitas Tower.

Photo – With the spring game just a couple of days away, most UofL fans will get their first glimpse of the second Petrino Era.  That said, the transition over from the Strong regime continues to evolve.  Most notably, the practices have been at a much faster pace and the offensive scheme is getting much more complex.  Add in the fact that the program is switching over to a 3-4 alignment, and you can see that there is still a lot to get accomplished before September 1st. He now has his second chance to do right after Tom...Continue reading »
