The Case of the Cards’ Coulda Beens

I was tailgating in the parking lot. Perfect weather, good friends, tasty food, a challenging yet thoroughly beatable opponent warming up a half-mile north. These Cards, this group of players and coaches, seemed to be the ones that were going to get us all giddy, to get the University of Louisville, of all schools, into the national football championship conversation.

As we mourn the loss of one of the greatest shows to grace the silver screen, let us look at Louisville football through the glasses of Walter White.

Rusty Rambles On: with David James and Terry Boyd

First, I wanted to see why David James voted not to remove ethically-challenged Barbara Shanklin from the Metro Council. He claims it’s because she wasn’t proven to have stolen any money. But I still wonder, given she did break ethics rules, what she would have to do get the boot. And apparently doing stupid stuff with good intentions is not one of them.

Rusty #6 with Brendan McCarthy and Marianne Zickuhr

Starting off, here’s a big thank you — to Diane Williamson, the area’s phenomenal voice talent, for giving the Rusty Satellite Show some free voice promos. That’s her doing the intros on today’s show.She’s gotten some pretty cool clients, not the least impressive of which is being the voice of OnStar — “Your vehicle is disabled. Don’t Panic. Help is on the way.” My interview with Brendan McCarthy started another week full of media news. This piece in Insider Louisville got a lot of attention for its chronicling the outflow of warm bodies at Sixth and Broadway, while LPM is…

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…

Louisville Shocks #24 West Virginia, 38-35

Who needs the Big 12? Charlie Strong secured the biggest win of his coaching career Saturday with a wild win in Morgantown. The Cardinal defense was able to make a few key plays in the second half to give Louisville the edge. Although the Mountaineers put up 533 total yards, two fumbles and a blocked field goal returned for a touchdown blew it for WVU. Freshman Andrew Johnson was able to run back the blocked kick 82 yards for the touchdown. Leaving Morgantown silent as Louisville celebrated. The turning point in the game came with Coach Charlie Strong electing to…

Career Ending Injury Mars Cards’ 16-14 Victory Over Rutgers

Its type of play that coaches, players, and fans alike never want to see. When Louisville Senior Anthony Conner appeared motionless after a tackle early in the second quarter, the mood shifted quickly in Papa Johns Cardinal Stadium.  Although Conner was able to feel and move his extremities while being carted off, it was soon realized that Conner had a broken neck and will never play competitive football again. Fortunately, Connor is suffering from no paralysis. Louisville Coach Charlie Strong held back tears during his post game presser saying, “It’s just so tough anytime you lose a player,It’s what happens in this game, but…
