Athlon Sports released their 2014 ACC division standings and they picked the Cards to finish third, behind Florida State and Clemson. It would be no surprise to see Louisville finish with eight, perhaps nine, wins in its debut season in the ACC and Athlon projects the Cards to win eight games. Here’s the Louisville related blurb from the preview: After Florida State in the Atlantic, Clemson ranks as the No. 2 team. The Tigers lose quarterback Tajh Boyd and receiver Sammy Watkins, but there’s still a lot of talent on both sides of the...Continue reading »
Photo – AP September 14, 2013. That was the last time Louisville had beaten UK in either baseball, basketball, football, or softball. Ironically, that drought came to an end last night in a weather delayed and rain soaked regional final at Jim Patterson Stadium. UofL defeated their arch rival 4-1 in what turned to be a very heated match-up as the benches nearly cleared twice after violent home plate collisions. Before that drama however, the Cards were led by freshman Josh Rogers, who earlier in the year, lost two decisions...Continue reading »

Photo – timesunion.com Louisville (47-15) rode the arm of Anthony Kidston (8-0), who threw for 7 innings, giving up just 5 hits and 2 runs as UofL beat Kansas (35-25). Outfielder Corey Ray went 3-4 with 2 doubles for the Cards. Louisville awaits the winner of the Kansas-Kentucky game. If the Cards win, they win the regional; if they lose, the regional championship would be Monday night at 7:00. Freshman Josh Rogers will pitch for the Cards today (2-3, 3.91 ERA). That could be bad news for UofL if they play UK because Rogers...Continue reading »
Photo – @ULFlyingCard The Cardinal Nine got the job done after a lengthy rain delay and late start at Jim Patterson Stadium, beating Kent State, 5-0.

Photo – gocards.com Under head coach Dan McDonnell, the UofL baseball program has experienced more success than all of Louisville’s other coaches combined.

UK and Kansas are in the opposite side of the bracket, setting up a potential match-up on Saturday between the schools should they both win or lose today. Here’s...Continue reading »
Photo – theACC.com ESPN’s Brett McMurphy leaked the picture of the logo a couple of weeks ago, but today UofL’s new league officially released it as they plan to create a new brand. In the press release, the ACC used all sorts of fancy reasoning as to why they changed the logo. It’s sleek and modern, but I’m sure you’ll get a kick out of the over-the-top rationale for the new look. Regardless of what the logo looks like, UofL and its fans are ecstatic to be a member of the conference. The Atlantic Coast...Continue reading »

The ACC blog on ESPN has been busy each week listing games on their ultimate road trip content. Most every ACC team had been featured but Louisville was one of the few excluded.

(Photo – Getty Images) Video surfaced last week of Russ Smith working out in Vegas and pulling off a rather Russdiculous dunk in front of various NBA personnel. He then went on to absolutely kill his group workout with the LA Clippers in which it was widely reported that he was, hands down, the best player in attendance. Slam Magazine then was able to catch up with Smith for a quick interview where they touched on a variety of topics including life after basketball, his decision to come back for his senior season and what areas he needs...Continue reading »
(Getty Images) In a positive turn of events that could ultimately help his draft stock, former beleaguered Louisville power forward Chane Behanan had his April 1st citation for marijuana possession dismissed yesterday in court. Behanan doesn’t have any further legal matters pending and is free to concentrate solely on working out for NBA teams. He’s completed his rehabbing at John Lucas’ facilities in Houston and has now moved to Chicago to live and train in between his final draft workouts. “It was a humbling experience,”...Continue reading »
