As Governor’s Cup Ends An Era, Its Identity Remains Unclear

When the whistle sounds to end tomorrow’s rivalry battle, somewhere a bagpipe will play “Amazing Grace.” The Governor’s Cup as we know it will die, and in its place a made for TV late season tilt will emerge. While you’d be hard pressed to find someone sad to see the end of week 3 battles between the Cards and the Cats, there is something special about the red and blue starting the season against each other. Louisville athletic director Tom Jurich reiterated his opinions Thursday at a Rotary Club meeting that he wishes the game could have remained towards the…

Cardinals Impress and Disappoint in 44-7 Victory over EKU

As the Louisville Cardinals began their season last week, Teddy Bridgewater wasn’t shy about expectations for his offense. “We should score every possession.” Louisville’s quarterback told the press. Bridgewater showed his immense abilities in the second week of his 2013 campaign, going 23/37, 397 yards, and four touchdowns. However, at times it was clear the Cardinals weren’t firing on all cylinders. Altough the Louisville passing attack remained masterful, the Cardinals running game never truly got going. The Cards’ three headed rushing attack combined for a mediocre 71 yards with no back averaging more 3.1 yards per carry. The superior offensive…





The Candidate: How A Day At ESPN Grew The Legend of Teddy Bridgewater

Although Teddy Bridgewater has quickly gained widespread attention, Monday was Teddy’s coming out party. Bridgewater spent the day going through the “car wash” at ESPN’s studios in Bristol, Connecticut. Bridgewater was scurried across the ESPN campus like a prized bull, and the Cardinals star shone in the limelight. Over the course of 11 appearances we saw Teddy grow up even more and more; just like he has over the course of two seasons with the Cardinals. The time was perfectly ripe for Bridgewater to make the obligatory trip to Bristol. Not only is it a short drive from the site…

Cardinals Fly Together: How Infrared Gave Louisville New Life

In the climax of the seminal 90s sports film D2: The Mighty Ducks, Coach Gordon Bombay (portrayed masterfully by Emilio Estevez) delivers one of the greatest pep talks in film history. Bombay converts his team of rag-tag Americans into a cohesive unit all with the phrase “Ducks Fly Together.” Using it to describe how his young hockey players aren’t just players but members of a team that represents the greatest country in the world. As the USA Ducks rally to go back on the ice, their elderly hockey adviser Jan hands them brand new jerseys. Completing the transformation and leading them…


The Cardinals Capture Big East Crown, 50-44

It may not have been pretty, but it got the job done. The Louisville Cardinals, who entered this week having lost four of their last six games, are your 2012 Big East Tournament Champions. Hard to believe. Chris Smith led the Cardinals with 15 points, but Peyton Siva was the star. Siva continued his spectacular play and posted 10 points and five assists. The junior’s performance was the final piece to an amazing week, and the Big East Tournament MVP. This week has been Siva’s coming out party, with this performance he’s showing how amazing he truly is. When Siva…

Cardinals Roll To Second Straight Big East Title Game

In the final Big East Championship before the conference will transform beyond recognition, two Conference USA transplants will battle in the final. The Cardinals secured their place in their third championship game in four years with a 64-50 victory over the 23rd ranked Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

Louisville continued to show its reinvigorated spirit with a passionate performance Friday night. The Cards continued to wow the fans with another huge in the first half, springing a 21-2 stretch in…
