Teddy is poised for a breakout Sophomore season

*Louisville QBs are taking a summer school course in film study; an excellent read by Eric Crawford.

To start with, Watson put together what he calls an Orientation Book for the quarterbacks, which not only details deeper points in what he wants to be a more complex offense than the Cardinals ran last season, but delves deeply into defensive philosophy and why the U of L offense is built the way it is.

In this offseason, Watson said he’s had three major objectives: Improve individual players based on their performance from last season; improve the scheme; and finally, to “push the learning curve” for Bridgewater and Stein. 

They will get cut-ups of every snap from last season, every throw. Watson can’t sit there and critique the video, but he has written detailed notes on every interception, every significant play. The quarterbacks went through those videos once in the winter in preparation for spring ball, and will go through them again this summer.

*Alex Kupper is nearing 100% after MCL injury in the spring game

Kupper’s road back is almost complete. He has worked hard to strengthen that knee and is close to returning to the form that made him one of just three linemen to start all 13 games for the Cardinals. He opened the year as the starting center because of an injury to Cardinals’ slated starter, Mario Benavides. However, Kupper moved over to tackle and was a mainstay at that position all season.

*Earl Clark is “leaning towards” declining his option to stay with Orlando

Orlando Magic forward Earl Clark is “leaning” toward declining the player option on his contract in order to become an unrestricted free agent, Clark’s agent, Happy Walters, told Orlando Pinstriped Post on Friday. Clark has until June 29th to notify the Magic of his decision. Walters said the team’s lack of a head coach after dismissing Stan Van Gundy on May 21st may play a role in Clark’s decision.
