As we’ve said for awhile now on the program, by the time it’s all said and done, Petrino and Co. will likely sign the best recruiting class in the history of the program (at least on paper).  This weekend figures to go a long way in determining how everything plays out.  To date, there are currently 18 prospects scheduled to visit campus.  In this group, there are several commits making the trip, including 4-star QB Lamar Jackson and 3-star RB Matt Colburn.’s Mike Hughes told us on the radio show last...Continue reading »

The sting of the disappointing bowl season is over for the ACC.  The league still finished with two Top 10 teams in Florida State and Georgia Tech, while Clemson was ranked 14th in the final rankings.  Louisville and Duke had 9 wins apiece and NC State finished with 8. Matt Fortuna looks at the ACC from this past season and writes that its final power ranking is too low. (and it is) More specifically, it had a much better season than the Big 12. In the leagues’ three meetings this year, the ACC went 3-0, with FSU beating Oklahoma State,...Continue reading »

  Even though the Belk Bowl turned into a blowout, your Louisville Cardinals (9-4) finished ranked 24th in the final AP Poll released today.  The ACC had four teams ranked in the poll – FSU at 5th, Georgia Tech at 8th, and Clemson 15th – joining UofL.  Georgia moved up four spots to 9th after their decisive victory of the Cards.  This season makes the third straight year UofL finished the season ranked.  In 2012, Louisville finished 13th, and last year they were 15th.  Louisville’s record over that three-year span...Continue reading »

  Aside from the Belk Bowl loss at the hands of Georgia two weeks ago, things have been going pretty smoothly for the University of Louisville football program. Recruiting is flourishing, Bobby Petrino’s return has been a success and several UofL players will hear their name called in the 2015 NFL Draft. However, two nights ago, redshirt freshman defensive back Terrence Ross sought to put an end to the good times. According to the Courier Journal and reports obtained from the LMPD, the Apopka, Florida native, who saw limited playing...Continue reading »

  As mid-January 2015 approaches, Rick Pitino is giving the same excuses he did in November as to why his young bench has failed to be overly effective on the court. Not physically strong enough, not picking up the defense, not quick enough, not aggressive enough…following almost every game, he says at least one of those things about one or more of his bench players. Pitino lights up when speaking about his 2015 recruiting class, but he almost winces every time he has to answer a question about the 2014 class. Louisville did not get...Continue reading »

The RPI has lost its luster so to speak when you analyze the numbers heading into March Madness, but it’s still useful to see how a specific team stacks up to those around them.  Here’s a look at UofL’s tournament profile in terms of its RPI and strength of schedule.  As you’ll see, the Cards’ strength of schedule will increase tenfold once the ACC regular season runs its course.  Currently, Louisville ranks 24th in the RPI and their SOS is 85th.  Their record against the Top 25 and Top 50 is 0-2, while the...Continue reading »

*The Cards had things rolling early in the second half; transition baskets, great defense, and were sharing the ball well as they took their largest lead at 63-50.  Three turnovers by Louisville and two offensive rebounds that led to quick buckets for the Tar Heels got them right back into it with the quickness. *Chris Jones once again played at his best, scoring 19 points, dishing out 5 assists, and grabbing 4 rebounds. *Rozier was a man all game and posted 25 points, 5 boards, and 5 assists.  His step back jumper gave the Cards the 71-70...Continue reading »

  Playing in an elite conference and competing in an elite conference is not the same thing, and for Louisville football, after establishing themselves as the latter on the field in their first year the ACC, they hope to prove they can do the same thing on the recruiting path. Bobby Petrino and his staff led the Cards to nine wins in their inaugural ACC season, showing they have what it takes to duke it out on the field, but what about off the field? Petrino was able to utilize a talented roster featuring returning talents like DeVante...Continue reading »

UofL’s DeVante Parker is a sure-fire first round pick in May’s NFL Draft.  Most mocks have him going somewhere in the top 10.  Louisville fans would go nuts if the Vikings drafted him to go alongside Teddy.  ESPN’s NFL Draft guru Mel Kiper, Jr. listed Parker 8th overall in his first top 10 NFL prospect list.
