Photo – AP The naming of the defensive coordinator took longer than most fans wanted, but ultimately Petrino plucked a DC from an SEC power.  Overall this is a very good staff, complete with coaches that have NFL and other power conference experience. Coach Petrino keeping Clint Hurtt and hiring Lamar Thomas will allow UofL to continue the pipeline from Florida. Getting a Head Coach to take an offensive coordinator’s position can always be viewed as a win.   Here’s a look at Petrino’s complete staff: Offensive Coordinator...Continue reading »

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Widely regarded as one of the best defensive coordinators in the country, Todd Grantham was tabbed by University of Louisville head football coach Bobby Petrino to...Continue reading »

Photo – UofL athletics *This squad came out from the start playing loose and having fun and the direct result of that was hot shooting and crisp passing.  Before the SMU game, the team and coaches got together and made the statement that they were done comparing themselves to last year’s champions.  That kind of play continued against Houston. *Welcome back Wayne.  Blackshear was outstanding, scoring a career-high 23 points on 8-10 shooting (5-6 from 3) and 7 rebounds in 29 minutes off the bench.  Could Wayne becoming a productive...Continue reading »

Being a football junkie and being bummed every season when it’s over, one thing I like to do is start breaking down the “proposed roster” for the next season. Starting with the running backs today, I’ll be bringing you my take on each position group and give them an overall grade. Since most of the current recruits are not signed sealed and delivered, I will not include them. It is safe to assume that the senior-to-be and leading rusher in 2013, Dominique Brown (6-foot-2, 216 pounds) will keep the starting position...Continue reading »

For weeks now we’ve heard rumblings that the ACC would look at altering the way the divisions stood.  In the Atlantic division, Florida State and Clemson have returned to national prominence.  In the Coastal, Miami and Virginia Tech haven’t matched the success of the ‘Noles and Tigers lately.  Those two factors have resulted in the league not having the true two best teams play for the ACC Championship.  The ACC will hold its winter meetings soon and the membership will look to the NCAA for the autonomy to create a way...Continue reading »
