Today, Athlon Sports starts us off with a look at the quarterback position and they tab Louisville red-shirt sophomore quarterback Will Gardner...Continue reading »

Outsiders glancing into the Louisville football program might notice the departures of defensive linemen Marcus Smith, Roy Philon and Brandon Dunn and expect a huge drop off in talent and productivity. Those outsiders would be very wrong as there are still several very talented and productive guys on that unit. With a new defensive scheme (going from a 4-3 base to an attacking 3-4 defense) and some highly-touted redshirt freshmen, there may very well be better stats and more depth in 2014.   Losing sack-leader Marcus Smith (14.5 sacks...Continue reading »

Photo – AP When you take a minute to think about how physical the game of football is, it’s difficult to see how an event where a bunch of dudes running around in spandex could improve their collective draft stock.  The NFL Draft Combine can do just that when the college game’s best players gather in Indianapolis this weekend.  UofL will have five players there hoping to improve their chances of getting drafted and/or moving up the draft board. Headlining the list of former Cardinals in Indianapolis are a pair of juniors...Continue reading »

Photo – AP USC QB Max Wittek decided to transfer from USC weeks ago and last weekend he took his first trip to check out a potential new school.  Wittek was very impressed with Texas and new Longhorn coach Charlie Strong.  But, he didn’t leave Austin committing to UT like most pundits believed he would.  Reading this article, you get the vibe that he doesn’t want to draw this process out much longer.  With that said, Louisville was the only school he mentioned when he discussed future visits.  No matter what Max decides,...Continue reading »

(Photo – Jeff Reinking / UofL Athletics) A sleepy first half crowd woke up in the second frame and the #5 /11 Louisville Cardinals crushed yet another conference opponent. This time the hapless team across the sidelines was South Florida who, despite their best efforts to stick around, simply couldn’t withstand the onslaught from Rick Pitino’s surging Cards. Louisville, with their 80-54 victory over the Bulls, now moves to 22-4 overall on the season and 11-2 in conference play. Here’s what I saw: Before getting into...Continue reading »
