Maybe it’s just me, but I think Luke Hancock’s heroic performances toward the end of the last season has resulted in some folks forgetting about Wayne Blackshear. Sure, Wayne was a little inconsistent last season, but he still had some big moments and to be fair, that was basically his freshman season. Unfortunately for Blackshear, he’s been bothered by shoulder injuries since the McDonalds All American game in 2011. Landing McDonalds All Americans is a big deal for the Louisville program and although we’ve seen some solid performances from Blackshear over the past two years, we haven’t been close to see him tap into his true potential. That may change this season. “I’m an older guy now, I’m a junior,” Blackshear said at media day. “I know a lot is expected from me this year.” Getting over injuries can be tough, not only physically, but mentally as well.

NFL scout freaked out by the fact Teddy Bridgewater wears a glove?

On Friday, Louisville Cardinals quarterback and Heisman hopeful Teddy Bridgewater will be placed into the national spotlight yet again, when his undefeated squad takes on Central Florida. Because Bridgewater is expected to go high in the next NFL Draft, perhaps even No. 1 overall, many scouts will be on hand to watch the junior signal caller. This includes one scout, who spoke...

Rick Pitino Owes Seth Greenberg

One of the bright spots from American Athletic Conference Media Day was the fact that former Virginia Tech Head Coach and current ESPN analyst Seth Greenberg was pretty much MC’ing the event. The four letter network has a cast of talented analysts, but Greenberg brings both a great personality and obvious knowledge of the game. In my opinion, two of the top questions lofted at...

Louisville Picked To Win The American Conference; Russ Smith Named Preseason Player of the Year

As expected, Rick Pitino and the Louisville Cardinal have been picked by the coaches in the American Athletic Conference to finish in first place in their one and only season as a league member.

Louisville Sells “Teddy” Bears With The #5. Ok Then.

Awwwww so cute. And obviously has no link what-so-ever to Teddy Bridgewater, #5 and star quarterback for the Louisville Cardinals. Nope. Everything is on the up-and-up here. Well at least Louisville wasn’t caught selling merchandise  to exploit famously-injured players. Oh….right. [Credit @UCFSports] Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

Michaelee Harris back to prime time for Louisville
