Photo – Detroit Free Press   Between this and the Michael Dyer saga, it’s probably safe to say expect the unexpected at this point. Things continue to change by the day, but the latest news out of Detroit appears to be at least somewhat promising for former Louisville point guard Peyton Siva. Selected 56th overall by the Pistons in last month’s draft, Siva looked to be on the outs with the team after they signed veteran point guard Chauncey Billups two weeks ago. Then yesterday, the team made what appeared to be another move that would all but...Continue reading »

photo – 247 Sports   Charlie Strong and the U of L football Cards have 22 commitments in the class of 2014. Of the 22, none of them are defensive tackles. It appears that the staff has zeroed in on landing at least two DT’s to complete the class and a few names are starting to pop up. One of them is 6-3, 295 pound 3-star Daniel Cage out of Cincinnati, Ohio (Winton Woods HS), who’s quickly becoming a top target on Louisville’s recruiting board. Cage is said to be down to Louisville, Michigan State, Tennessee, Florida and Cincinnati. Yesterday,...Continue reading »

                  Teddy will soon make it to #1 (photo- Up first on the “top 5″ list are the signal callers; the guys who get the most pub or the most scorn.  This group, however, got well-deserved praise throughout their Cardinal careers.  The criteria here (and the following lists) are strictly what they did while on campus, hence no Johnny Unitas. 5. Dave Ragone (1999-’02) 685-1,180 58%, 8,564 yards; 74 TD – 29 INT.  This gutty QB is best known for helping to orchestrate the Cards’...Continue reading »

  Sports Illustrated’s national college basketball columnist Andy Glockner is in the middle of a series entitled “catching up” in which he takes an in-depth look at all the major conferences and outlines a favorite, a darkhorse, and a player to watch, etc. This afternoon he released his piece on the American Athletic Conference and, as expected, Louisville (and its players) were well represented. Glockner talks about Louisville being the favorite to win the conference, how UConn and Memphis should be their top challengers and he picked Russ Smith...Continue reading »

Outside of Louisville, the American doesn’t have many teams ready to make a national impact this year.   However, there are a few teams that have an outside chance at starting their respective season off at 5-0.  Let’s take a look: LOUISVILLE 8/31 Ohio  9/7 E. Kentucky  9/14 at Kentucky  9/21 FIU  9/28 OPEN DATE 10/5 at Temple The Cards should get a test from Rutgers and UCF in October and the last game of the regular season at UC will be huge.  Still, we would be shocked if UofL isn’t 5-0. CINCINNATI 8/31 Purdue  9/7 at Illinois  9/14 Northwestern...Continue reading »

Photo – UK Athletics   Let me start off by saying this: I know Louisville is currently in its own predicament with an assistant coach, though, from what we’re hearing, Clint Hurtt will be relieved of his suspension soon and will fully rejoin the team around the start of the season. I suppose that’s speculation, but a good source tells us it’s likely at this point. Anyway, Hurtt’s indiscretions occurred while employed at another school. Since stepping foot on UofL’s campus and working under head coach Charlie Strong and AD Tom...Continue reading »

  As expected, in the inaugural season of the newly-formed American Athletic Conference, Louisville was picked to win the league today at media day. The Cards received 28 of the 30 possible 1st place votes (who in the hell didn’t vote for them?) and will be favorites to win every game on their schedule this season. Behind Louisville, in order, the media picked Cincinnati, Rutgers, Central Florida, South Florida, Houston, UConn, SMU, Temple and Memphis. Cincinnati received the other two votes to win the league. Louisville is represented today in Rhode Island...Continue reading »

(photo – Despite declining a Heisman trophy campaign and reiterating over and over throughout the summer that he put the team before all else, someone in the Louisville athletic department twisted the arm of quarterback Teddy Bridgewater just hard enough. On Monday, the player who is projected as the top QB prospect in the 2014 NFL Draft by ESPN’s Mel Kiper went out of his comfort zone to go through what is known as the ESPN “Car Wash,” in which an athlete appears on as many ESPN shows as possible in a single day. Perhaps the Bridgewater...Continue reading »

Taking out a hefty insurance policy is becoming more and more prevalent with college prospects with promising futures. Just a few months ago, Jadeveon Clowney, who is projected to be a top pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, took out a $5 million insurance policy with the NCAA. Promising college prospects can acquire an insurance policy with the NCAA’s “Exceptional Student-Athlete Disability Insurance Program”, and this will protect against any future earnings lost due to injury. Louisville Junior QB Teddy Bridgewater said he took out a $10 million insurance...Continue reading »
