The ACC lost the challenge to the Big Ten, 8-6, but Louisville’s new league showed that the upper tier is primed and ready to make some noise this year.  David Teel takes a look and the match-ups from this week and offers his take on the ACC moving forward this season. Perhaps most telling, and foreshadowing a top-heavy league race, the ACC swept the four games pitting ranked teams: Duke-Wisconsin, Virginia-Maryland, Louisville-Ohio State and Miami-Illinois. Moreover, unranked Notre Dame nudged No. 19 Michigan State in overtime, making...Continue reading »

Louisville completed its successful regular season at 9-3 and ranked 21st nationally.  With that, Coach Petrino wrote a letter to fans thanking them for their support both at home and on the road.  Dear Cardinals Fans: During this hectic time with recruiting, and preparing for our fifth-straight bowl appearance, I wanted to take a moment to personally thank all of our fans for their tremendous support during our first season in the ACC. We sold out each one of our home games and provided a big-time atmosphere for our players and recruits....Continue reading »

ESPN.com’s Matt Fortuna recapped UofL’s first season in the ACC and how the Cards showed they are a force to be reckoned with from here on out.  Louisville, #21 in the latest CFB Playoff Poll, finished 9-3 overall and 5-3 in league play.  In all three league losses, UofL had plenty of chances to win, but didn’t seize those opportunities.  Still, one of four ranked teams in the ACC, the Cards showed they belonged. Jurich admitted his biggest initial worry was what the locker room’s response would be after watching...Continue reading »

Louisville’s win over #14 Ohio State seems to have fallen largely unnoticed after the game finished up about 15 minutes until midnight on Tuesday.  However, we’ve got you covered from two different perspectives – national and from Columbus. *ESPN’s Dana O’Neil broke it all down from the Yum! Center, highlighting Wayne’s big game. For much of Wayne Blackshear‘s career, he’s been derided for what he hasn’t been instead of what Louisville fans hoped he could be. There have been reasons —...Continue reading »

  Although he was up for pretty much all the major national defensive player of the year awards (including the Bednarik and Nagurski awards), Louisville junior safety Gerod Holliman was unable to capture the same title in his own conference. Despite posting historic numbers, headlined by his NCAA-record-tying 14 interceptions, Holliman was passed over for ACC defensive player of the year in favor of Clemson’s Vic Beasley. Now, this is no slight on Beasley, who’s had another tremendous season and will assuredly be playing on...Continue reading »

There was good, there was bad, and there was ugly. Real ugly. Buzz’s girlfriend in Home Alone ugly. Rocky Dennis ugly. You get the picture. The first half was what you wanted to see. Even though shots weren’t falling, the defense was a buzz saw that led to easy baskets and a Louisville lead by 17 that seemed insurmountable at the half. Senior Wayne Blackshear came up big for the Cards, finishing with 22 points (6/13 from the field, 6/7 from the free throw line, and 4/8 from behind the arc) 6 rebounds, and 3 steals. Would have...Continue reading »

  The nation’s best high school recruit – regardless of class – is on the UofL campus today and will take an unofficial visit to check out Rick Pitino’s program. Thon Maker, the incredibly skilled 7-foot forward who’s been stirring up a buzz in the high school world for over a year now, is the unanimous #1 ranked player in the 2016 class according to all four of the major scouting services. Maker, who now lives in Ontario, Canada, but is originally from Sudan (and came to America by way of Australia) has...Continue reading »

  After going down with a knee injury in the second quarter of Louisville’s dramatic 44-40 victory over Kentucky, it looked as if starting QB Reggie Bonnafon would be out for the foreseeable future and perhaps beyond. However, things appear to have taken a positive turn in the last 24 hours. In a press release sent out by UofL last night, the school announced that Bonnafon does not have any structural damage to his injured left knee and might even be available for the team’s yet-to-be-determined bowl game. Bonnafon injured...Continue reading »

The No. 21 Louisville Cardinals capped off their highly successful inaugural ACC season with 10 players named to an All-ACC team.  Gerod Holliman was named to the first team, while Lorenzo Mauldin made the second.  DeVante Parker was a third team selection even though he played just 5 games.  The argument could be made that he should have been a first teamer based on his production. The defending national champion and nationally-second-ranked Seminoles placed 17 members on the squad, including 10 first-team selections, as voted upon by...Continue reading »

Andrea Adelson absolutely nailed it in her Fact/Spin piece on the ACC’s domination of the SEC this past Saturday.  She detailed the double standard associated with the ACC and how it’s all but impossible for the league to get its rightful props.  SEC homers will point out that the ACC won only one game it wasn’t favored in, but you don’t hear that angle when the SEC wins. Fact: The ACC went 4-0 against the SEC on Saturday, the first time in 14 years it swept its conference rivals. Spin: But it was against the miserable...Continue reading »
