(Photo – It’s always nice when the Cards gets the recognition it seemingly has earned by national pundits. This time, Andrea Adelson who is a writer for ESPN’s ACC Blog offers up more evidence (a very appropriate reason No. 502) as to why UofL showed once again it was the right choice to get scooped up in the latest round of ACC expansion. By UofL finishing in the top 15 in 2014 Spring Game attendance, on a Friday Night, and 3rd overall in the ACC, Adelson points out how UofL’s fanbase offers further...Continue reading »

(Photo – Somebody awesome) You just can’t make this sh*t up. Seriously, there is absolutely no end to the amount of L1C4 jokes I’ve heard over the last 3-4 years. Almost on a daily basis, via Twitter, text messages among friends, littering the Blogosphere – whatever – you could see the Kentucky faithful hurling sarcastic insults at Louisville fans from high upon their perch. And by perch I mean the balcony from their double-wides parked near sanitation dumps, blown-up Meth Labs or any tattoo parlor that’s...Continue reading »

Although college basketball is less than 3 weeks removed, it doesn’t look like you’ll have to wait much longer for some huge news. According to their twitter feed, tomorrow morning the ACC is set to announce their full slate of matchups for both the 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 seasons. Unlike the football configuration which is broken up into the Atlantic and Coastal divisions, the ACC has full autonomy (along with the TV networks) to schedule hoops opponents any way they like. Which probably means than the upper echelon programs like...Continue reading »

(Photo – has put together a nice write up on UofL’s Redshirt Sophomore Quarterback Will Gardner. Matt Osborne writes that if things break the right way for Gardner under the direction of UofL Head Coach Bobby Petrino, it could be a special season for Gardner and the Cardinals in 2014: If you believe in the validity of trends, then the safe bet would be to say that a relatively unknown player will walk away with the Heisman Trophy at the conclusion of the 2014 regular season. College football’s...Continue reading »

(IU assistant Kenny Johnson: Photo – Daniel Martin) After a few weeks of rumor and innuendo, Kevin Keatts’ former assistant spot remains vacant on the UofL basketball sidelines. Keatts, who helped Louisville get to back-to-back Final Fours, win a National Championship and grab three straight conference tournament titles, left the program last month to accept the head coaching position at UNC Wilmington. While a few names continue to swirl, here’s what we’re hearing the most: The first name to pop up was current Indiana...Continue reading »

Photo – Andrea Adelson published a must-read piece on Teddy, defending the former Louisville QB in the midst of his seemingly falling draft stock.  She caught up Shawn Watson, who used some common sense to explain the type of player Bridgewater is.  Sure, some of the nonsense being talking about Teddy is posturing by some GMs in an attempt to throw off teams who are potentially interested in Teddy so that they could scoop him up.  But, some mocks projected him to go in the second round, and that’s asinine. ...Continue reading »

(Photo – ESPN’s Brett McMurphy reported today that Louisville signed a 5-year extension with adidas worth $39 million.  That deal is the third richest in all of college athletics next to Notre Dame’s $9 million annual contract with Under Armour and Michigan’s $8.2 with adidas. We had heard that UofL listened to pitches from other companies, but ultimately re-upped with adidas because they want Louisville as one of their flagship schools.  Expect to see several uniforms combinations with the football...Continue reading »

Will Gardner, Louisville (SO) Replacing Teddy Bridgewater is a difficult task for any quarterback, but it appears the Cardinals are in good shape under center with Gardner. It’s tough to read too much into spring performances, but Gardner’s numbers in Louisville’s spring game are certainly encouraging. The Georgia...Continue reading »
