We all know that the Cards are set to take on Georgia in the Belk Bowl in Charlotte at 6:30 and Rick Pitino’s 4th ranked hoops squad was also slated to play Long Beach State at 7:00 that same evening.

This is good news for Louisville fans, who, as we all know, love...Continue reading »

Before the season started, UofL basically had four tests they had to endure before playing that team up the road on December 27th.  Minnesota in Puerto Rico, now #12 Ohio State at the Yum!, and Indiana at Madison Square Garden.  One could argue that traveling down to Bowling Green to take on Western would serve as a hurdle as well.  Currently, the Cards are 8-0 – 3-0 in the Big Ten – and ranked 4th nationally.  With games against UNC Wilmington, WKU, and Cal State Northridge, UofL figures to be 11-0 by the time the Cats come...Continue reading »

  Louisville was not perfect during their convincing 20-point victory over Indiana in the Jimmy V Classic, but Rick Pitino’s squad gave a glimpse of just how good of a team they can be, and spoiler alert: other ACC teams are not going to like it. The team played with tremendous effort and cracked 90 points for the first time this season in Tuesday night’s hard-fought win, and while the game still shined a light on areas where the team is still in need of improvement, it showed that when the team is clicking on all cylinders,...Continue reading »

  This summer most of the people around the University of Louisville men’s basketball program were telling anybody that would listen that sophomore combo guard Terry Rozier was poised for a breakout season. He generated a buzz all summer and rumors began to fly – warranted or otherwise – that the 6’2 Youngstown native was an NBA lottery pick in the making and was destined to become the next great guard under head coach Rick Pitino. And the NBA personnel heard and saw the same things, as ESPN had him listed as the...Continue reading »

Pitino was also asked about a potential Louisville-Indiana series going forward. “What I suggested to Tom is we do Lucas Oil Stadium for two years and we try to break the attendance record,” Pitino said. “We try to get 80,000 people, each team gets 40,000, whoever can’t sell the 40 returns it. I’m pretty sure we can bring 40 and I’m pretty sure they can bring 40. “So we’ve got great respect for IU, we’d love to play them....Continue reading »

  After nearly two months of uncertainty, Louisville finally got its ruling on freshman small forward Shaqquan Aaron. The 6’7 Seattle native was cleared this afternoon by the NCAA and will have to sit out two more games (making a grand total of 9 missed contests) before he can make his official debut against Western Kentucky on December 20th. The ruling from the NCAA was handed down after they found that Aaron’s family received extra housing benefits somewhere along the way during his high school career.

The CFB Playoff era, the rich get richer as each of the Power 5 conference will bring in $50 million before even playing a postseason game.  With the ACC, the league is bolstered by the $27.5 million payday from the Orange Bowl as well.  The other four power leagues won’t see that kind of additional money this season ($40 million) as the Rose and the Sugar are semi-final games.  When those games aren’t semi-finals, those conferences will bring more loot.  Still, in the first year of the playoff, the ACC made out very well. ...Continue reading »

  Former Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater may have just had his best performance as a professional over the weekend as he led the Minnesota Vikings to an overtime victory over the New York Jets. In the game, Bridgewater was 19 of 27 passing for 310 yards, 2 TDs, and 1 INT. He could have had three TDs had a WR not fumbled, then recovered, on the goal line. It is the second straight game Bridgewater has completed more than 70% of his passes and registered a 100+ passer rating. He had not accomplished either of those stats this season before...Continue reading »
