Fan has creepy Rick Pitino tattoo

We’ve seen fans go to some pretty crazy extremes to show support for their beloved teams. One of the most common ways is getting a tattoo. Some recent notables are an Alabama fan’s with a pretty obvious and embarrassing spelling error, an Arkansas fan’s tattoo complete with a razorback dangling an LSU Tiger by the tail, and some Nebraska ink showing support for Jack Hoffman...

Updated Highlights From Pitino’s Newest Commitment, Jaylen Johnson

Rick Pitino received his third commitment from the 2014 class last week when Jaylen Johnson, a 6-foot-9 forward for Ypsilanti, MI., gave Louisville a verbal pledge.

Cliff Alexander Will No Longer Take An Official Visit To Louisville

One of Rick Pitino’s top targets in the 2014 class has decided that he will no longer take a visit to Louisville. Cliff Alexander, a five star power forward from Chicago had maintained for the past few months that Louisville would be one of his five official visits. Unfortunately, Alexander has decided to take his fifth official visit to Illinois instead. Although Alexander isn’t...

Kevin Ware Received Some Good News On Tuesday

According to Louisville Sports Information Director Kenny Klein, junior guard Kevin Ware received some good news regarding his injured leg. Klein reports that Ware is expected to be back on the court and resume full time basketball activities in four weeks.

No. 7 Louisville, QB taking advantage WR corps

Cardinals quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is making the most of his bevy of receivers and each week reveals how deep No. 7 Louisville is at the position. The Heisman Trophy candidate already had veterans DeVante Parker, Damian Copeland, Eli Rogers and tight end Ryan Hubbell to throw, but Bridgewater has blended junior Kai De La Cruz and transfers Robert Clark and Gerald Christian...

Teddy Bridgewater Will Return To The Place Where It All Started

On Saturday afternoon, Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater will head back to where it all started. Nearly two years ago to the exact day is when the Bridgewater legacy all began. As a true freshman in his third career game, Bridgewater was thrown to the wolves on the road in a rivalry game after starting quarterback Will Stein went down in the first quarter with a shoulder injury...

Quentin Snider Has Committed To Illinois

Just 43 days after de-committing from Louisville, four star point guard Quentin Snider has decided on a new school. Snider committed to the University of Illinois on Thursday afternoon at Ballard High School in front of the media along with his family and friends. It’s still somewhat of a shock to me that Quentin won’t be wearing a Louisville Cardinal uniform in 2014. The Louisville...

Early Analysis: Louisville at Kentucky

No. 7 Louisville (2-0) at Kentucky (1-1) Saturday, 12:00 p.m. EST, ESPN Line: Louisville -13.5 After back-to-back impressive wins at home over Ohio (49-7) and Eastern Kentucky (44-7), Louisville is going on the road for the first time. It’s not too far, though as the Cardinals are heading to Lexington, Ky. In those wins, Louisville’s offense was almost perfect as...

Saturday Will Be A Home Game For Louisville Defensive Tackle Roy Philon

Charlie Strong and the Louisville Cardinals will have their first road test of the 2013 season on Saturday as they travel to Lexington, KY., to take on the Kentucky Wildcats at Commonwealth Stadium. The Cardinals will look to keep the Governor’s Cup in the Derby City for the third consecutive year. Although the schedule says this is a road game, it’ll be considered a home game...

Tough talk as UK defenders prepare for Bridgewater

The thing about Teddy Bridgewater is that he has no fear. Watch him get creamed by Florida’s Dominique Easley, surviving a knockout blow on his first play in the Sugar Bowl. Watch him get to his feet and complete a 25-yard pass to Eli Rogers for a first down on the next play. Watch him pick Florida apart. Watch him play with ankle and wrist injuries while leading his University...

Recap: Charlie Strong Radio Show

Four Star Linebacker Favoring Louisville

As it stands today, Louisville offensive coordinator Shawn Watson is pretty loaded in the backfield. However, when it comes to recruiting, you’re always looking to add continued talent and depth. D’Ernest Johnson, a four star running back from  Immokalee, FL., is currently a top target for Charlie Strong’s staff and apparently the feeling is mutual. Johnson shared this photo...

Some Serious Competition In The Louisville Backfield

Shawn Watson and Kenny Carter have plenty of options when it comes to running the football. The trio of Senorise Perry, Michael Dyer and Dominique Brown gives Louisville arguably one of the deepest backfields in the country. While all three guys have proven to be solid running backs at the collegiate level, none have stepped up and earned the full time starting job. “No one has...
