  Louisville head coach Rick Pitino recently sat down with CBS Sports college basketball analyst Seth Davis in which he opens up about potential NBA job offers, the extortion case with Karen Sypher, his 2014 squad and how much longer he plans to coach. I’m not typically a big Davis fan, but he does a pretty fair and balanced job with this interview and at least got Pitino to answer some difficult questions.

  The University of Louisville announced today that their star safety Gerod Holliman has been named one of the five finalists for the prestigious Bronco Nagurski Award. Holliman, who tied an NCAA record with 14 interceptions two weeks ago against Boston College, has been a revelation in the secondary for Louisville and he’s gone from a minor contributor to a projected first round NFL draft pick. The Nagurski Award is given out each year to the nation’s top defensive player (regardless of position) and will be presented to...Continue reading »

The No. 24 Cards are getting set to play Notre Dame for the first time and QB Reggie Bonnafon and OC Gerrick McGee spoke to the media about the upcoming tilt.  Based on the comments, the growth of the freshman signal caller has been impressive.  The team knows what to expect up in South Bend and have been practicing how to handle the crowd noise of 80,000.  The staff feels comfortable in how Bonnafon has practiced and is confident in him and his abilities going into Saturday. *You can listen/watch Reggie’s comments here. *You can...Continue reading »

After the Perry Dozier miss, Coach Pitino is on the trail to land another guard to add to his Top 5 recruiting haul.  According to The Courier-Journal’s Steve Jones, a potential prospect for Pitino is 4-star Traci Carter.  The 6’1 guard is from Philadelphia and is coached by former Louisville great Pervis Ellison.  Ranked 92nd nationnaly by Scout.com, Carter has flown mainly under the radar because he had to sit out this summer’s AAU circuit due to surgery to repair a torn meniscus. The 6-foot-1 Carter, who’s coached...Continue reading »

  Notre Dame was already banged up heading into Saturday’s huge match-up with Louisville in South Bend (defensive linemen Sheldon Day and Daniel Cage will each miss the game with knee injuries), but now it looks like they could be down one more very important piece. Although he’s been extremely turnover prone lately (and by lately, I mean the entire season) and has hurt the team at times, Notre Dame announced today that QB Everett Golson suffered a sprained joint in his shoulder during this weekend’s overtime loss against...Continue reading »

The ACC announced that ESPN evoked the “six-day hold” on the UofL-UK game, meaning we won’t know the time of kickoff until after the Notre Dame game.  If the Cards were to beat the Irish, you’d think it would push the game to a prime time spot at night.  For now, the schedule looks like this: South Carolina at Clemson, TBA, Six-Day Hold* Wake Forest at Duke, TBA, Six-Day Hold* Florida at Florida State, TBA, Six-Day Hold* Kentucky at Louisville, TBA, Six-Day Hold* Pitt at Miami, TBA, Six–Day Hold* The following game...Continue reading »

  After a monster game against Minnesota in which he looked nearly flawless en route to a 30 point, 7 rebound effort, Louisville’s Montrezl Harrell has been named the national college basketball player of the week by CBS Sports. Harrell was razor sharp from all over the floor as he connected on 9-12 field goals (including 3-4 from downtown) and also drained 9 of 10 free-throw attempts. Harrell’s jumpshot (form and technique) looks completely different than a year ago and if Friday night was any kind of sign of things to come,...Continue reading »

It’s been an eye sore for a long time, especially after UofL football moved to PJCS in 1998.  But even though the bleachers are rusted, the rainbow colored seats are flimsy, and the turf has rotted, the first phase of the demolition of Old Cardinal Stadium will have a touch of sadness to it.  The football program shared the facility with the Triple-A Louisville Redbirds and served as the launching pad for the football program. Before Howard Schnellenberger arrived, there was real talk of the football program being dropped down to the...Continue reading »
