Photo – AP On this Valentine’s Day, it’s safe to say we love our Louisville basketball.  We’ve had to endure a nine-day hiatus, leaving us as anxious as ever to watch Cardinal hoops.  The Cards and Owls will tip-off tonight at 6:00. *Russ is struggling at the FT line “But now, I’m at a point where everything I do is so critiqued and it’s so judged that when I’m at the free-throw line and I have time to myself, I almost feel like I’m not even playing basketball. I feel like I’m in my room, dealing with...Continue reading »

(Photo – Jeff Robbins / Getty Images) The fine folks over at ESPN’s ACC football blog (Heather Dinich and Andrea Adelson) have officially added Louisville to their coverage, and there’s several note-worthy pieces up on their site today. Not only did they link an outstanding interview with a few fine, handsome gentlemen, they also posted a great one-on-one interview with Cardinal wide receiver Eli Rogers. Dinich caught up with Rogers to talk about the move to the ACC, the new coaching staff, the offense moving forward and...Continue reading »

(Photo – USA Today) Tonight’s nationally broadcasted game between Louisville and Temple has been officially postponed and will be played tomorrow evening (Friday), instead. The Philadelphia area was nailed with over a foot of snow last night and the two schools decided it would be in everyone’s best interest to move the game. Though UofL and Temple have not set a new tip-time, expect a formal announcement to come down later tonight (we’ll update the site once we get the final word). Temple is just 1-9 in league play...Continue reading »

Photo – AP It was discussed last week at the ACC’s winter meetings but wasn’t voted on.  However, the ACC appears to be inching closer to a 9-game conference schedule.  According to’s Jeremy Fowler, over half of the ACC’s ADs are in favor of the move.  They know that with more league games comes the increasing possibility of an ACC Network, thus more money. As far as Louisville is concerned, this plan would basically ensure the Cards playing a College Football Playoff-worthy schedule on an annual...Continue reading »

Photo – 247Sports National Signing Day was last Wednesday, but Coach Petrino and staff aren’t done recruiting as they landed 3-star DT Tae Thibodeaux from New Iberia, LA.  The staff zeroed in on him last week and got him to visit campus this Sunday and Monday.  This morning he tweeted out that he would sign with UofL tomorrow.  Thibodeaux, a 6’2 270 lb. DT, was a late bloomer his senior year as he grew two inches and gained about 25 pounds in the summer or 2013.  He visited Wake Forest and received an offer from Arkansas...Continue reading »

Brown spent two seasons prior to Alabama as the defensive coordinator for Colorado and also held that same...Continue reading »

(Photo – Timothy Easley / AP) After years of navigating their way through the toughest conference in America (the former Big East, as it were), the University of Louisville men’s basketball team now finds itself in some strange and uncharted waters. I think most college hoops analysts and aficionados believed that the inaugural season of the American Athletic Conference would provide the backbone for perhaps the 4th or 5th best league in the country (behind the ACC, Big Ten, Big 12 and possibly the Pac 12), but as it stands today,...Continue reading »
