The game itself was ugly, and the post-game atmosphere in the locker room wasn’t much prettier after UofL struggled past the Seahawks of UNC Wilmington by just 11 points. It’s ridiculous that just about every year there are games where the team isn’t focused and that they are in need of a wake-up call, but that’s the way it is.  Trez said it best when he stressed that “we only have 40 minutes to play Louisville basketball.”  Hopefully the entire team gets the message this week in practice.

Petrino and staff are on the prowl to find some immediate help on both sides of the line for 2015 and beyond. The latest commitment,  DE Drew Bailey (6’3 275 lb.) – figures to be in the two-man rotation from the start. *Check out the highlight film for Bailey HERE. No word yet on the other visitors, 3-star JUCO RB Jeremy Smith and 4-star DE Tim Settle in regard to their future plans.  It’s probably a safe assumption to say that Louisville leads for Smith.  Settle is reportedly interested in Clemson, Michigan State, UVA,...Continue reading »

*According to 247Sports, Louisville’s 2015 class ranks 31st nationally and 6th in the ACC. *JUCO OL Justin Sandifer is close to making an official commitment and signing with UofL this week.  The 6’4, 313 lb.

3-star RB and Louisville commit Matt Colburn took home the honor of South Carolina Mr. Football, an award that Jadaveon Clowney and Marcus Lattimore have won previously.  Though his senior season was cut short due to injury, Colburn still managed to rush for over 1,200 yards ans 24 TDs.  He finished just 3 yards shy of 5,000 for his high school career. Dutch Fork running back Matt Colburn said he was “at a loss for words” after being named the 2014 South Carolina Mr. Football award winner on Saturday. “It’s crazy. I can’t...Continue reading »

  While the coaches and media snubbed DeVante Parker in regards to first-team honors, the fine folks at ESPN.com didn’t.  Here’s a look at the deserving Cardinals that made their All-ACC team. WR DeVante Parker, Louisville: The senior caught 35 passes for 735 yards and five touchdowns, the latter two numbers among the top 10 in the ACC. Oh, did we mention he missed the first seven games? LB Lorenzo Mauldin, Louisville: A step-up in competition for Mauldin and the Cardinals meant even better results, as the hybrid notched...Continue reading »

The ACC went 10-7 against the other Power 5 leagues, including an impressive 4-1 against the SEC.  With the Bowl season approaching, UofL’s league has a chance to make a great 2014 season even better. Now is not the time to blow it. Especially after a blockbuster final weekend in which the league went 4-0 against the SEC. Ultimately, the way the ACC performs during bowl season will determine how people perceive the ACC headed into 2015. That is why this postseason in particular is so critical. Because we already saw how a shaky national...Continue reading »

First the national leader in interceptions was named a Walter Camp First Team All-American, then the Miami native took home the Jim Thorpe Award.  The Thorpe Award is handed out to the nation’s best defensive back.  You could say that Gerod Holliman had a good day.  It’s crazy to think that he didn’t play much last year and now he’s likely off to the NFL after one full season of play. Holliman, who was also named a first team CBS All-American on Wednesday, was named a first team All-ACC selection by the media and...Continue reading »

  December 30th is shaping up to be a pretty solid day. We all know that the Cards are set to take on Georgia in the Belk Bowl in Charlotte at 6:30 and Rick Pitino’s 4th ranked hoops squad was also slated to play Long Beach State at 7:00 that same evening. Key word being was. Louisville sports information director Kenny Klein just sent out a press release stating that the UofL – LBS match-up has been moved up to 4:00 so as to not conflict with the football game. This is good news for Louisville fans, who, as we all know, love...Continue reading »

Before the season started, UofL basically had four tests they had to endure before playing that team up the road on December 27th.  Minnesota in Puerto Rico, now #12 Ohio State at the Yum!, and Indiana at Madison Square Garden.  One could argue that traveling down to Bowling Green to take on Western would serve as a hurdle as well.  Currently, the Cards are 8-0 – 3-0 in the Big Ten – and ranked 4th nationally.  With games against UNC Wilmington, WKU, and Cal State Northridge, UofL figures to be 11-0 by the time the Cats come...Continue reading »

  Louisville was not perfect during their convincing 20-point victory over Indiana in the Jimmy V Classic, but Rick Pitino’s squad gave a glimpse of just how good of a team they can be, and spoiler alert: other ACC teams are not going to like it. The team played with tremendous effort and cracked 90 points for the first time this season in Tuesday night’s hard-fought win, and while the game still shined a light on areas where the team is still in need of improvement, it showed that when the team is clicking on all cylinders,...Continue reading »

  This summer most of the people around the University of Louisville men’s basketball program were telling anybody that would listen that sophomore combo guard Terry Rozier was poised for a breakout season. He generated a buzz all summer and rumors began to fly – warranted or otherwise – that the 6’2 Youngstown native was an NBA lottery pick in the making and was destined to become the next great guard under head coach Rick Pitino. And the NBA personnel heard and saw the same things, as ESPN had him listed as the...Continue reading »
