Say what you want about adidas, but these throwbacks they’ll wear against Duke are pretty sick.  They are honoring five different schools – UofL, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, and UCLA – this season that have won past championships.  The Cards will rock these uniforms against Duke on January 17th.  Based on the reaction from social media, CardNation wouldn’t mind if the squad wore these the remainder of the year. adidas is making moves in the college industry as they recently signed Arizona State to an eight year deal. ...Continue reading »

  Louisville finished the season on a down note, getting blown out by Georgia in the Belk Bowl, but the tremendous job Bobby Petrino and his staff did in the program’s first season in the ACC should have fans feeling optimistic for the future. In his return to Louisville after a seven-year hiatus, he was tasked with transforming a roster built for Charlie Strong’s slow down, clock controlling approach into his style of explosive, point generating offense. He had to experiment with three unproven QBs and four different RBs....Continue reading »

All ‘Cardinal’ eyes will be on current 4-star commit Lamar Jackson as National Signing Day approaches.  According to the Orlando Sentinel, he will officially visit Louisville on the 16th (the Duke game is the following day at the Yum!).  He’s also pondering a visit to Mississippi State the next weekend.  Another visit he will for sure make is to Florida on the 30th, the last weekend before NSD. He will also be visiting Louisville on Jan. 16 and possibly Mississippi State on Jan. 23, and while Jackson said he is still firmly...Continue reading »

  It was a disappointing end to an otherwise successful season for Louisville Football as the Cards went (9-4) overall and (5-3) in their first season in the ACC.  Coach Petrino matched his same feat he accomplished in 2003 at UofL – winning 9 games in his first season.  His record stands at an impressive 50-13 in five seasons at Louisville.  With the ugly bowl loss behind them, let’s take a look at what lies ahead for 2015 Cards…. *The offense loses a lot – most notably stud WR DeVante Parker, who hauled in...Continue reading »

This won’t come as a shocker or anything, but according to two NBA Scouts, UofL players – most notably Trez and Terry – didn’t necessarily help their draft stock against the Cayuts.   Harrell finished with 9 points (on 4 of 9 shooting) and 8 rebounds, but was forced to play 40 minutes because Louisville has no other inside scoring threats.  Terry posted better overall numbers of 15 points and 8 rebounds in 37 minutes, but he struggled shooting the ball, going 1-5 from 3 and 5-18 overall.  Both players don’t...Continue reading »

Belk Bowl Media Day pic.twitter.com/3ALoSJ5pZS — LouisvilleFootball (@UofLFootball) December 29, 2014 With the game against #13 Georgia just a day away, this was the last opportunity for the coaches and players to speak with the media before tomorrow’s 6:30 kick-off. Here are some snippets from Coach Petrino and the Atlanta media leading up to the big game. *Coach Petrino didn’t say who will start at QB for the Cards. Smith said he feels like even offensive coordinator Garrick McGee and line coach Chris Klenakis are “trying...Continue reading »

  Louisville Legend Teddy Bridgewater led his Minnesota Vikings to a win over the Chicago Bears, capping off a 7-9 season.  As a starter, he went 6-6, winning just as many games as the other rookie QBs combined.  His final regular season stats are as follows: 259-402 (64%) for 2,919 yards with 14 TDs and 12 INTs.  His passer rating was a very respectable 85.3.  That performance will surely put him in contention for offensive Rookie of the Year.  This brief blurb sums up Teddy’s rookie campaign, doing what needs to be done to...Continue reading »

There are too many bowl games, but they all serve a positive purpose in each specific community.  That’s certainly the case with Charlotte’s Belk Bowl as UofL, along with their UGA counterparts, took part in a variety of charitable opportunities.  Here’s what the team has been up to through Twitter: Players up early this morning packing food packs at the Second Harvest Food Bank @belkbowl @CoachPetrinoUL pic.twitter.com/xMEaiji3XP — LouisvilleFootball (@ULFBRecruiting) December 28, 2014 Cards at the Food Bank on...Continue reading »

  Louisville’s seventh loss in eight games to Kentucky is a tough pill to swallow for Card Nation, but as embarrassing as it may be for many, recent history shows it is never wise to count out Rick Pitino. Take a moment to remember how easy it was to count out the 2011-12 Final Four team. They could not score a basket to save their life for most of the season. The regular season game at Kentucky was similar to the one fans just witnessed. Louisville played great defense, but talent-wise, they were just no match for Anthony Davis,...Continue reading »

  Rick Pitino has now firmly taken a back seat to Kentucky and John Calipari, and if he does not make changes to his approach, he may as well get comfortable back there. For the seventh time in eight games, Louisville fell to a John Calipari-coached Kentucky team, and just as it is every season, it largely was in part due to the talent gap. Kentucky has a lot of it and Louisville has some of it, which is nothing new. The talent Louisville has had has been historically worse than Kentucky’s since Calipari’s arrival, and while...Continue reading »
