LouisvilleKY’s Cards getting ready

Story and photos from LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The University of Louisville football team used the first two weeks of training camp to learn a new defensive scheme and break in a number of new faces. With only five returning starters returning, there were plenty of concerns about the youth and depth on that side of the ball. However, with the season opener just 10 days away versus Alabama, the Cardinals are more comfortable on defense, and are closing in on its rotation, especially at the linebacker position, where a number of new faces will be counted on to build depth….

LouisvilleKY’s THE WEEK: This is Not Going Well

As President-Elect, Donald Trump is today taking credit for something that was never going to happen — he tweeted that he was responsible for Ford not moving a plant from Kentucky to Mexico. He’s picked a known bigot as one of his top advisors. People around the country continue to hold protests. This isn’t going well, and it’s just getting started. So we must look outside politics for good news — I played golf at Seneca in 70 degree weather on Nov. 17. It’s almost Thanksgiving. Maybe a move to Thailand is in order. According to this video from my…

LouisvilleKY’s The WEEK: A Blowout, Bourbon Days, and Bluegrass Lead Into Labor Day Weekend

After a 56-point first half at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium, the biggest talking point for the football-crazed fans in the upper deck was whether the Cards could actually score 100 points. “Bobby, Don’t Let Up!” we yelled at Petrino. Of course, no one expects any football team to score 4 TDs per quarter, but it sure was fun while it lasted.  Watching phenom QB Lamar Jackson carve up a Charlotte secondary that seemed to be leaving at least one Card received wide open on pass plays left us marveling at Jackson’s talents. Petrino chose to, well, let up, at the start of…


Petrino to stay in Louisville Ky longer

In Football, It was Reality Weekend In Louisville KY

A Not-So-Great Louisville KY Football Weekend In college sports, this really is a basketball town. Make that state. OK, region. It becomes evident every October, and is usually drilled home in November. Exhibit A – Yesterday’s results. The brightest moment for an area school was Louisville’s ugly 17-14 win over Boston College at home. And by bright, I mean a game that included 21 punts, and 4 fumbles, played under gray skies, and occasional rain, in a half-empty stadium. Bobby Petrino’s offensive genius label is peeling off as quickly as the school’s reputation for high morals, as the Card QB…

Scandal Fatigue: How Can We Cheer For These Guys Now?

Remember how you used to imagine what life was like for your favorite college basketball player — balancing class attendance with road games and practice, all in order to help your school win a championship? Remember when players weren’t the targets of intense recruiting battles and didn’t expect anything more than an eduction in exchange for performing in athletics? Welcome to 2015, the year that any remaining innocence was pronounced dead. The bombshell day was Oct. 20, the day Katina Powell talked publicly, named names and dragged Louisville’s name through the national mud on ESPN, and got an entire sports-addicated…


Louisville Football Looking to Work Through Tough Start

From LOUISVILLE, Ky. – One of the most telling characteristics of a team is how it handles adversity. The Cardinals have dropped three-consecutive games, including two to top-15 opponents. However, like the team, the season is young, and Louisville is hoping to grow from its mistakes. Losers of their first three games by a total of 13 points, the Cardinals are looking to snap a four-game losing streak dating back to last season, which is the longest since 2008 when UofL dropped five games to close the season. It’s a streak that head coach Bobby Petrino, who owns a…
