Photo – Sports Illustrated   When Russ Smith decided to return for his senior season back in May, he certainly sent ripples throughout the college basketball world and instantly made the Cards a threat to repeat as National Champions in 2013-2014. Since then he’s been named a preseason All-American and has appeared on all the major 2014 NBA draft boards. Today, the accolades continue to roll in as Myron Medcalf of ESPN named him one of his top 10 most indispensable players for the upcoming season. Also appearing on the list were Mitch McGary (Michigan),...Continue reading »

  Louisville’s top commitment for the 2014 class, combo guard JaQuan Lyle, will transfer to Huntington Prep for his senior season. Lyle currently attends hometown Bosse High School in Evansville (IN) but will join a stacked HP squad that also includes Josh Perkins (an uncommitted top-25 point guard from Colorado), Providence commit Jalen Lindsey (# 32 overall according to ESPN’s top 100), Louisville target Angel Delgado (63rd overall in ESPN’s top 100) and rising 2015 wing Montaque Gill-Ceasar (#17 overall in ESPN’s top 100). The move shouldn’t...Continue reading »

With losing Gorgui Dieng and Peyton Siva in the first and second rounds of the NBA draft, respectively, there has been much debate on if the 2013-2014 Louisville basketball team will be as good as the 2012-2013 National Championship team. I can see arguments either way but realistically replacing these two players will be very hard to do. What I can conclude without a doubt though is how frustrating the 2013-2014 team will be, not to Rick Pitino or even the Louisville fans, but to opposing coaches, players, and fans alike. Why is that you might ask? I think this will...Continue reading »

photo – AP   Not sure if this latest release from College Football News is just trying to cause a stir and be different or what, but they predict that Rutgers will win the American and UofL will have two losses in league play. We’ve said numerous times on the radio show that it will be tough to go undefeated, but it’s hard to see UofL losing two league games, especially one at home to Rutgers on a Thursday night.  Suffice to say, if this were to come to fruition, local and national perception would not be kind towards Charlie Strong and his team....Continue reading »

Former Auburn RB Michael Dyer led Auburn to the BCS Championship in 2011 and was the MVP In what will certainly generate a lot of buzz – and opinions – rumors continue to circulate that Louisville and 5-star/Auburn transfer RB Michael Dyer could join forces.  There has been nothing official from UofL or Dyer’s camp about him becoming a Cardinal, but there is a lot of smoke.  Dyer, who was ranked as the #1 running back in the nation coming out of high school, helped lead the Auburn Tigers to the BCS Championship.  Look at the company of backs he...Continue reading »

photo – 247sports Coach Strong and staff picked up a commitment from Ohio TE Devin Pike yesterday, and struck in Ohio again today landing 3-star DE Terry Ramsey.  The 6’5 225 lb. prospect picked Louisville over Michigan State and West Virginia.  Ramsey makes the 22nd pledge to the Cards’ 2014 class and UofL picked up a much needed defensive end.  There is one thing to watch in his recruitment however, and that he is still planning to take visits to other schools.  We’ll see how his recruitment transpires over the next few months.  Regardless,...Continue reading »
