(Photo – SI.com) As Houston quarterback John O’Korn’s pass sailed through the arms of wide receiver Aaron Johnson on 4th and goal in the final seconds of the fourth quarter Saturday night, Louisville’s BCS hopes sailed away with it. Sure, there is a slight (and I mean SLIGHT) chance the Cards could luck their way into a BCS, but a lot would have to happen. UCF would have to lose twice and/or several teams ahead of the Cards in the polls would have to start losing games they should not lose. Most fans knew and understood that the...Continue reading »

(Photo – USA Today)   Speaking with reporters this afternoon at a press conference, Louisville head coach Rick Pitino announced that suspended power forward Chane Behanan is officially back on the team. According to Pitino, Behanan has completed his list of things he needed to do in order to get back on the team and in the good graces of the coaching staff. Pitino went on to tell reporters that Behanan practiced yesterday and will also suit up for tomorrow’s game against Hofstra. He wouldn’t go so far as to say he will...Continue reading »

It never fails. If you wanna whip this fanbase into a frenzy, just start tossing around new uniform ideas or rumors. I don’t know what it is, but Louisville fans (me included) love themselves some uniform talk. I suppose every school’s fans are the same way (though I doubt to the same degree), but it seems to carry some extra weight around these parts. Anyway, this afternoon, shortly after head coach Charlie Strong wrapped up his weekly press conference, the UofL twitter account posted the picture you see above along with the words...Continue reading »

(Photo — AP)   ESPN’s college basketball insider Jeff Goodman was in Louisville last Sunday for the Cards’ exhibition game against Pikeville College. After the game, Goodman sat down with Kevin Ware for ESPN’s Sunday conversation. Ware hit his first shot — a three pointer — and finished the game with six points and four rebounds in 10 minutes. Ware talked about a number of topics, including his return to the hardwood, how he’s dealt with his injury, and Coach Pitino’s decision not to play...Continue reading »

(Despite an off shooting night, Wayne Blackshear is making huge strides. Photo – GoCards.com) After the 2013 National Championship banner was raised in the YUM! Center this past Saturday in an emotional ceremony, the lights came back on, the new-look Cards took the court, and all traces of that championship team disappeared. Despite returning several players and the majority of their scoring, this 2013-14 Louisville basketball team will have a different identity. That is not a bad thing, just an indication the fanbase may need to be...Continue reading »

  (Photo – Jeff Reinking – UofL Sports)   I’m not sure if it was the pageantry of the Championship banner ceremony or just the fact that it took a while to shake off the rust, but the Cards looked sluggish and out-of-sync for the entire first half and struggled to make easy shots. By my unofficial count, they missed 6 lay-up’s with little or no contact and maybe an additional 3-4 with slight contact but that still should have been finished. I think the end result was a poor field goal percentage (34% on 10-39...Continue reading »

Photo – AP There are only three regular season games left on the schedule for UofL, and it looks as though the race for the American crown is all but UCF’s.  However, there are still games to be played, and the chance remains possible for the Cards to find their way into a BCS bowl.  Here is the champion determining criteria and the tie-breaking rules in place with the AAC as well as the remaining schedules for the teams competing with UofL for the BCS spot: Two-Way Tie   1. The winner of the head to head match-up will represent...Continue reading »
