Photo – miamiherald.com Andrea Adelson published a must-read piece on Teddy, defending the former Louisville QB in the midst of his seemingly falling draft stock.  She caught up Shawn Watson, who used some common sense to explain the type of player Bridgewater is.  Sure, some of the nonsense being talking about Teddy is posturing by some GMs in an attempt to throw off teams who are potentially interested in Teddy so that they could scoop him up.  But, some mocks projected him to go in the second round, and that’s asinine. ...Continue reading »

(Photo – sportingnews.com) ESPN’s Brett McMurphy reported today that Louisville signed a 5-year extension with adidas worth $39 million.  That deal is the third richest in all of college athletics next to Notre Dame’s $9 million annual contract with Under Armour and Michigan’s $8.2 with adidas.

Without question, one of the weaknesses for the U of L football team is the secondary. After losing Calvin Pryor and Hakeem Smith, the Cards are looking for playmakers at the safety position. And today, that safety position just got a little better with the addition of former Washington Huskies stud James Sample. Sample, a former 4-star recruit out of Grant High School, brings talent, size, and experience to the U of L secondary instantly. More importantly, his addition adds much-needed depth to a position of need. Last year, Sample attended...Continue reading »
