  UofL’s defensive coordinator was offered the same position with the NFL’s Oakland Raiders while the Cards’ OC chose not to interview at Oklahoma.  Signing Day is next week and both Todd Grantham and Garrick McGee have been in the news by turning down overtures from other franchises/schools.  That bodes well for the future of Louisville football and – as always – ESPN ACC Blogger Andrea Adelson nails it with her summation. The decision Grantham made may have been a little more surprising to some, considering...Continue reading »

UofL DC Todd Grantham signed a 5-year – $5 million contract when he agreed to join Coach Petrino last January.  Now, various reports say that he has interviewed with the Oakland Raiders and is a serious candidate.  It’s hard to say why he’d leave a guaranteed contract with Louisville for a franchise that has such a high coaching turnover rate, but  it seems like he’s truly interested in this position.  If he were to leave less than two weeks before signing day, it would be a huge blow to the program.

  After a somewhat inconsistent start to his 2014-2015 campaign, Louisville sophomore combo guard Terry Rozier has turned up his level of play recently and now looks to be one of the best all-around backcourt players in the nation. For the entire season Rozier is averaging 17.8 ppg, 5.3 rebounds and 2.5 assists. However, his play over the last 12 games has been nothing short of spectacular. In fact, over that 12-game stretch (starting with Indiana and ending with Pitt), Rozier is averaging 20.6 points per game and has kept his field goal...Continue reading »

UofL got a big ACC road win last night and now sits at 5th in the league.  Louisville’s record against the RPI Top 50 is just 2-3, but the Cards moved up to 19th .  When you take a look at Louisville’s tournament profile, you quickly see there is still more room for improvement.  However, with the beast that is the ACC, UofL will get plenty of chances to secure several marquee wins. Teams remaining on Louisville’s schedule in the Top 50: #3 Virginia (twice) #11 North Carolina #36 Notre Dame #38 Miami (twice) #45 NC State VN:F...Continue reading »
