Lost in the hype – to some extent – of today’s huge game with FSU was the ACC’s Media Day. Louisville’s Montrezl Harrell and Wayne Blackshear joined Coach Pitino in Greensboro, NC for the school’s first ever ACC “Operation Basketball”. *Former Big East foe Syracuse has some advice for UofL entering the ACC. The Orange finished second, behind Virginia, in their first trip through the ACC. The Panthers were fifth and the Irish tied for 11th. I asked two Syracuse players, guard Trevor Cooney and...Continue reading »
I can still remember reading some of the toxic Georgia message boards when Louisville announced that it was hiring Todd Grantham to be the football program’s next defensive coordinator. After a season in which the Bulldogs were decimated by injuries, UGA finished 45th in total defense nationally in 2013, and apparently that was bad enough to crucify him locally. And I’ll admit, when Grantham was hired and given a robust 5 year contract at $1 million per year, it certainly made me raise an eyebrow. But the Bulldogs’...Continue reading »

On the field, he’s a superstar. A Heisman Trophy winner and a defending national champion. Off the field, he’s a disaster, constantly in the news for all the wrong reasons. With Winston walking off with crab legs several months ago, it made him an easy target to make fun of. The ol’ intertronz is a trove of photoshopped gems and we’ve found a sampling of some of the more humorous ones…. And a GIF to close things out…. Go Cards.

The Louisville Cardinals made a small part of history as they were the last team the inaugural College Football Playoff Top 25. The Cards – at No. 25, were one of four teams from the ACC that were included in the first ever poll. UofL’s Thursday night foe Florida State came in at #2 while Clemson was No. 21 and Duke was 24th. Here’s the conference breakdown for the Top 25: SEC – 6 Pac-12 -5 Big 12 -5 ACC – 4 Big Ten – 3 Group of Five – 1 Independent – 1 Louisville is the only team not...Continue reading »
His talent on the basketball court is undeniable, but his common sense is lacking and decision making ability is worse. Still, it appears that his recent success in the D-League and reported better work ethic and behavior have gotten him close to landing a spot on the Sacramento Kings’ roster. In his previous 18-game stint in Sac-town, Williams put up averages of 9 points, 4 rebounds, and 3 assists. With an opportunity to sign, free agent Terrence Williams worked out for the Sacramento Kings on Monday for the second time since July,...Continue reading »
Just two days after going to Facebook and posting pictures of an alleged assault that took place at the hands of her boyfriend, star Florida State running back Karlos Williams, Miranda Wilhelm has curiously requested (through her attorney) that the Tallahassee police department drop its investigation into the incident. Nathan Prince, Wilhelm’s attorney, said in a public statement today that his client never sought out the police or University officials, but rather that someone from Florida State made an inquiry after seeing the...Continue reading »
You can have your Associated Press and Coaches Polls, your ESPN Power Rankings and all the other various sets of college basketball measurement systems. To me, the most important, accurate and in-depth analytics available are the ones over at KenPom.com. And good ole’ Kenny just released his initial 2014-2015 rankings and Louisville once again sits near the very top. The Cards, with their powerful defense and efficient style of play, have been Pomeroy’s darling over the last four years and have easily been the most consistently...Continue reading »
With news dropping yesterday that Florida State might be might be without top running back Karlos Williams, as well as several injured players across the board on offense, there’s a reason why the Vegas line continues to drop in favor of Louisville. Conversely, it appears that the Cardinals are as healthy as they’ve been all year with the return of star wide receiver DeVante Parker and running back Michael Dyer. Also, after the team’s practice yesterday, head coach Bobby Petrino said that both James Quick (ankle) and...Continue reading »
Some updates as we are two days out from the biggest game of the season…. *The ACCDN’s Jeff Fischel released his updated ACC Power Rankings. Your Louisville Cardinals are third; one spot ahead of #24 Duke. *Petrino met with assembled media to brief them on the Cards’ improving health. “[Brandon] Radcliff is back going full speed, which is great to see,” Petrino said following practice Monday. “He’s had an issue with his toe that’s bothered him on and off. He’s back there competing hard. Dom [Brown]...Continue reading »
Earlier this morning we posted about how the UofL – Florida State line opened up at -8.5 and had already moved down to as low as -6 for the Seminoles. However, after just 6 hours, the line continues to move in Louisville’s favor as news about a couple of potential suspensions and injuries loom large for FSU. First, Florida State’s star running back Karlos Williams is under investigation by the Tallahassee police department due to a potential domestic violence dispute that occurred this past Saturday night. It should...Continue reading »
When it metaphorically rains college basketball, it metaphorically pours college basketball. With the season just a few weeks away from officially tipping off, the major hoops websites are all in the midst of releasing their top 25’s, power rankings and various other meaningless and rather subjective way-too early analyses. Yet, because we’re all basketball junkies and need to feast our eyes on anything with the words “Louisville ” or “Rick Pitino” in them, I’m still going to link to all of...Continue reading »
