Photo – AP When Louisville got screwed was seeded 4th in the Midwest Regional yesterday, CardNation and national pundits alike were puzzled as to why and how it happened in the first place.  Yes, the Cards have won 12 of their last 13 and have embarrassed their foes along the way.  Nevermind the questionable seedings of Virginia as a 1, Kansas as a 2, or Creighton as a 3.  In the end, UofL’s weak out-of-conference schedule and not beating North Carolina and/or UK really turned out to bite them.  The selection committee gave...Continue reading »

After opting not to participate in several drills in last month’s NFL combine, including throwing and running the 40-yard dash, former Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater completed a full workout during Louisville’s pro day Monday morning, and several scouts and analysts came away unimpressed. Performing in front of 29 NFL scouts and several NFL coaches, Bridgewater did his best to separate himself from fellow QB prospects Blake Bortles and Johnny Manziel but from all accounts, came up a bit short. He completed one 40-yard dash unofficially...Continue reading »

Photo – USA TODAY I’m not sure if it’s a good or bad thing, but the national pundits have been talking a lot about Louisville these last couple of days.  With Louisville beating UConn for the third time this season to win the AAC tournament, here’s where the Cards stack up in the RPI breakdown.  Gary Parrish gives a good recap and lays out a fair argument as to why Louisville probably won’t get a one seed. The Cardinals are 12-1 in their past 13 games. They won their AAC tournament games by an average of 33...Continue reading »

Photo – @American_MBB *If you’re a UConn fan, you’re glad that Louisville will be leaving the league since the Cards have now beaten the Huskies 9 out of the last 10 times they have played, including 5 straight. *The game was never in doubt and the Cards exploited UConn’s frontcourt with the aggressive play from Trez.  The big man muscled his way to another double-double against the Huskies, posting 22 points and 11 rebounds.  In his three games against Connecticut, he’s averaging rather robust numbers of 20...Continue reading »
