(Photo – Sports Illustrated)   Louisville’s “Russdiculous” Russ Smith is back on the cover of Sports Illustrated. The publication’s college basketball preview hits stores this week and Smith appears alongside Kentucky’s Julius Randle. It’s one of four regional covers to be released by SI (the others feature Michigan and Michigan State, Duke and North Carolina and Kansas and Oklahoma State) in conjunction with the start of the season. The Cards are also #1 in SI’s top 20……right...Continue reading »

There’s no more worrying UofL fans.  Our Cardinals will be officially flying into the ACC effective July 1, 2014.  UofL AD Tom Jurich brokered the deal – paying the American a total of $11 million through 2017 – with AAC Commish Mike Aresco to smoothly transition Louisville into their new league without the threat of litigation.  The same can’t be said for AAC rival Rutgers, who appears poised to go to court in hopes of getting a lower exit fee to join the Big Ten.  Realignment guru Brett McMurphy wrote an insightful...Continue reading »

The only show in town dedicated to talking solely UofL football, basketball and recruiting is back tonight at 6:00 on ESPN 680 and ESPNLouisville.com.  On the show, we welcome on USA TODAY’s national college basketball writer Eric Prisbell to talk about UofL’s early success this year on the hardwood.  We will then talk to CBSSports.com’s college football insider Jeremy Fowler about Louisville’s 8-1 season to date, the remaining schedule, and Louisville’s move to the ACC.  We will also breakdown Pitino’s...Continue reading »

Locally, a few days ago a news story surfaced that was really a non-story; Maryland is still fighting the ACC’s exit fee of $52 million.  It’s likely that there will be legal wrangling over the next few months about it as well.  Both sides seem firm in their positions, but what does it really mean?  It means that Maryland will still leave for the Big Ten in 2014-15.  Why?  They are poised to go the same route West Virginia did to enter the Big 12; leave to enter the conference they want to move into regardless of what the old...Continue reading »

Photo – 247sports National Signing Day came and went without much fanfare for the defending national champions as the Cards signed 5-star SF Shaqquan Aaron and 4-star PF and C Jaylen Johnson and Chinanu Onuwaku.  According to 247Sports, UofL’s class ranks 6th nationally.  With three new Cardinals in the fold, Pitino and Co. will look to add to this class in the Spring.  Two prospects the staff are targeting are 4/3-star PG Josh Gray and 3-star C Bakary Konate.  The 6’11 Konate is ranked as the 14th best center in the...Continue reading »

(Photo – SI.com) As Houston quarterback John O’Korn’s pass sailed through the arms of wide receiver Aaron Johnson on 4th and goal in the final seconds of the fourth quarter Saturday night, Louisville’s BCS hopes sailed away with it. Sure, there is a slight (and I mean SLIGHT) chance the Cards could luck their way into a BCS, but a lot would have to happen. UCF would have to lose twice and/or several teams ahead of the Cards in the polls would have to start losing games they should not lose. Most fans knew and understood that the...Continue reading »

(Photo – USA Today)   Speaking with reporters this afternoon at a press conference, Louisville head coach Rick Pitino announced that suspended power forward Chane Behanan is officially back on the team. According to Pitino, Behanan has completed his list of things he needed to do in order to get back on the team and in the good graces of the coaching staff. Pitino went on to tell reporters that Behanan practiced yesterday and will also suit up for tomorrow’s game against Hofstra. He wouldn’t go so far as to say he will...Continue reading »

It never fails. If you wanna whip this fanbase into a frenzy, just start tossing around new uniform ideas or rumors. I don’t know what it is, but Louisville fans (me included) love themselves some uniform talk. I suppose every school’s fans are the same way (though I doubt to the same degree), but it seems to carry some extra weight around these parts. Anyway, this afternoon, shortly after head coach Charlie Strong wrapped up his weekly press conference, the UofL twitter account posted the picture you see above along with the words...Continue reading »
