Louisville 27 – USF 25: Post Game Notes

To be undefeated seven games into the season is not an easy feat.  Regardless of how pretty you look when you do it, how your opponents are viewed, or what conference you are in…undefeated is undefeated.  Louisville is likely to get their opponents best shot for the remainder of the season until they are knocked off, and I think that’s exactly what you got Saturday night against...

Bridgewater’s Heroic Fourth Quarter Drive Pulls The Cards Past USF 27-25

The fans who have stuck around to see the last two finishes at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium definitely got their money’s worth.

Louisville didn’t play a flawless game to say the least, but once again they’ve proven that they know how to win close...

Louisville stressing offensive balance

Louisville's team concept is such that the term ''go-to guy'' applies to just about anybody on the roster. At least, that's the philosophy of Cardinals guards Peyton Siva and Russ Smith and center Gorgui Dieng, who are expected to lead a return to the Final Four along with forward Chane Behanan. It's reflected in last season's scoring, where Smith...

Hancock with 29 in Louisville scrimmage

A few thoughts on University of Louisville basketball after Sunday’s intrasquad scrimmage at the KFC Yum! Center …Luke Hancock will be a rock, a steadying influence, bringing a wider variety of shots and higher accuracy than Kyle Kuric.

Recap: Second Red – White Game

It was a sloppy start, but Louisville’s second of three intra-squad scrimmages ended up being a pretty competitive match-up.  The red team ended prevailing 85-74 behind Luke Hancock and Kevin Ware’s big performances.

Goal-line stand huge for U of L defense

The drive late in the game that was capped by an Eli Rogers touchdown catch rallied Louisville to a 27-25 victory over South Florida. But perhaps the biggest series of plays came earlier in the third quarter when the Cardinals made a goal-line stand that lasted five plays against the Bulls.
