Louisville Football’s Charlie Strong and staff have received their second verbal commitment for the class of 2014.
Michael Johnson is a 6-3” 190lb Safety out of Hialiah Florida near Miami. While Johnson is not currently ranked by any of the major recruiting services, he has been offered a scholarship by West Virginia, Nebraska and Central Florida.
Obviously to have extended an offer, the staff must feel fairly confident and see some upside and potential in Michael. Johnson finished his junior season one tackle short of 100 and recorded seven forced fumbles and an interception.
Johnson joins Trinity High School’s Reggie Bonnafaon as the second member of Louisville’s 2014 class.

THROW IT DOWN
Could this dunk by Louisville Cardinals sophomore Chane Behanan go down as the best dunk of the college basketball season?Leading 21-16 with just under five minutes to go in the first half, Behanan intercepts an errant pass around midcourt, takes a couple of dribbles, and proceeds to go full speed at the rim. The only thing standing in his way is Blue Demons senior Worrel Clahar...
Syracuse and Louisville are locked in a tight battle late at the Carrier Dome – things are tense. Rick Pitino, after an offensive foul call on the Cardinals, got a little animated. We can’t tell if he’s yelling at Russ Smith or Gorgui Dieng, but either way, he’s not happy. Something about getting out of bed after a long slumber, maybe.
When I first heard that Louisville's Chane Behanan was called for the foul on this play I was not surprised. For one man to over power another--well, for the sake of the other guy's dignity I was rooting for him to get credit for taking the charge not to mention the knee to the head.
As it turns out the play counts and this goes down as arguably one of the best dunks of...
It isn’t quite Selfie Sunday yet, but Peyton Siva and the Louisville Cardinals just couldn’t wait. After a big win on the road defeating No. 12 Syracuse, the Louisville team decided to take a group selfie to put on Instagram:

Seems like it was all in good fun to me, but some may view this as little bit of gloating. But Siva himself said he was...
As diehards of this site (Mom? Are you there?) already know, The Hoops Manifesto runs a College Dunk of the Year Tournament every spring. Our next nominee for the 2012/13 edition is Louisville's Chane Behanan with this vicious cram.
Big up: SLAM
Rick Pitino really wanted his Louisville Cardinals players to 'wake the f*** up' against Syracuse on Saturday.
If the tide was going to turn in favor of Syracuse, it was going to happen when James Southerland hit the three-point shot at the 9:21 mark.
He was getting warmed up, making four three-pointers in the second half, or so it seemed.
The 31,173 fans at the Carrier Dome felt it, University of Louisville fans had a sinking sensation with Syracuse claiming a 38-36 lead. Twenty seconds...
The 10th ranked Louisville Cardinals squad won their fourth straight with a 79-58 victory over the Blue Demons at Allstate Arena on Wednesday night.
Louisville got off to a very slow start on Wednesday night at DePaul, falling behind 8-0 within the first couple of minutes. Louisville stormed back scoring nine unanswered points and never looked back.
There is no denying how sloppy Louisville looked at times, but 42-points in the paint and 23-points off of turnovers helped the Cards cruise to a 79-58 win over DePaul. Louisville...
Imagine dropping one of the best dunks of your life on ESPNU and some punk ref calls you for an offensive foul. Imagine that your knee is eye level with the dude taking the charge.
You know what sucks about college basketball these days? Offensive fouls. Specifically charges. The good news last night during Louisville’s 79-58 win over DePaul is that the refs changed this to a...
"Wake the **** up," Rick Pitino, today during Louisville / Syracuse.
That's what she said.
No. 10 Louisville beats No. 12 Syracuse 58-53

About a month and a half ago, Louisville didn’t close out a game against Syracuse in the Yum Center…this time was a different story. The Cards went into the Carrier Dome and closed out a game in the last minute behind multiple big plays by Luke Hancock.
I have always been the biggest critic of Luke Hancock but today I found myself hoping that he was on the floor over Wayne...
