  Following the close of the final live evaluation period of the summer, 5-star Florida-based shooting guard Antonio Blakeney has decided to trim his list of schools to seven. Louisville head coach Rick Pitino followed Blakeney all throughout the Peach Jam last week and then was front and center for all of his games here in town this past weekend at the AAU Nationals. The Cards, along with Florida State, Missouri, Oregon, Kentucky, LSU and USC, comprise his final list. The most glaring omission has to be Florida, as the Gators and Billy...Continue reading »

Tim Bonner, a 6’5 225 lb. DE from Demopolis, AL is the latest commitment to Petrino’s 2015 class.  Bonner had offers from Kentucky and Mississippi State among others.  He was on campus last week and left with an offer.  He visited Lexington the week before, but since he wanted to have a successful college career, he made the wise choice by selecting Louisville.  He currently doesn’t have a ranking, but will likely be a 3-star once he is graded.  You can view his highlight reel here.

Louisville junior forward Montrezl Harrell had a decent chance to be a lottery pick in this year’s NBA draft, however, it wasn’t guaranteed he would crack the top 15. After talking with scouts and GM’s Harrell decided to return to Louisville, and for good reason. Harrell wants to lead Louisville to another deep run in March and to also improve his draft stock. Well, Louisville fans are glad to have him back. The KFC Yum! Center and the Cards’ opponents on the road? Who knows? It just depends whether or not the facilities’...Continue reading »

The announcement last week of yet another QB coming into the fold forced a lot of fans to ask the question, “What are we going to do with all of these quarterbacks?”  The addition of Washington State transfer Tyler Bruggman raised the total number of signal callers on scholarship to seven.  If you count walk-ons Ethan Horton and Reggie Green that are also on the roster, that number goes to nine.  Based on the comments Coach Petrino has made this summer, he really likes Will Gardner and incoming freshman Reggie Bonnafon.  He...Continue reading »

Coach Stoops’ absence from this week’s Governor’s Cup luncheon in Louisville was probably blown out of proportion.  The UK coach not electing to go doesn’t translate into the series not continuing.  On Wednesday, Coach Petrino said once again that he’s in favor of always playing UK no matter when the game is scheduled. “I definitely would like to keep playing it,” Petrino said. “I hope we continue it. We took it away from the first game of the season, but to be on rivalry weekend, I think it’ll...Continue reading »

  I guess when it’s the offseason it’s fun to debate random topics, come up with hypothetical shit and pick winners and losers before a single game is even played. Makes sense, huh? Not really, but I suppose it just lends further credence to the fact that people are starving for the fall and, with it, the start of football. As such, here’s another set of rankings to get upset about, even though it’s fairly mundane and really doesn’t mean anything at all. Sports On Earth has compiled a listing of the top 100...Continue reading »

  Don’t say we didn’t tell ya. When you hire Charlie Strong – and he brings offensive coordinator Shawn Watson with him – you best be prepared for some narrow wins and a less-than-exciting brand of football. Now, the payoff is certainly worth it in the end, especially if, ya know, you enjoy winning games and stuff. But with those wins will come narrow senior night victories against Memphis, asleep-at-the-wheel wins over Temple and second-half-collapses at home vs Central Florida. And, as star UofL wide receiver...Continue reading »

  Louisville head coach Rick Pitino and his assistants have made 5-star shooting guard Antonio Blakeney a priority for over a year now and there’s no signs of a let-up in sight. The staff relentlessly tracked the 6’5, Sarasota, Fl., based scorer every single day at the Peach Jam last week and yesterday Pitino was front and center for all three of his games at the Fair and Exhibition Center. And, as is usually the case, Blakeney did not disappoint. Drawing by far the largest crowed of any player on hand, Blakeney almost delivered...Continue reading »
