Found October 22, 2012 on The Cardinal Connect:
Sophomore defensive end Lorenzo Mauldin’s performance on Saturday didn’t go unnoticed. Earlier this morning, Mauldin was named the Big East defensive player of the week. He finished with a career high six tackles and two sacks on Saturday against South Florida. Mauldin has played numerous positions since arriving at Louisville, but he seems to have found his permanent home at defensive end. His hard work in the offseason is paying off as Mauldin has beaten out a few guys who started games at that position last year for Louisville. This is the second consecutive week that a Louisville played has been honored as defensive player of the week. Senior Adrian Bushell was given the honor last week.

Week 9 Depth Chart Observations

For the third week in a row Lorenzo Mauldin is inserted into the starting front four.  Mauldin’s performance the previous two games have been the strongest two-game performance thus far for a Louisville defensive lineman.  His 3.5 sacks and 4.5 tackles for loss against Pitt & USF far exceed any two game combo of anyone on the Cards roster.  If this progress continues, it’s...

Louisville Having A Tough Time Getting Off The Field On Third Down

I never thought I’d see this from a Charlie Strong coached Louisville team, but this year’s offense is clearly carrying the team thus far.  Louisville’s offense is converting on third down 56.04% of the time which ranks second in the country, behind only Army who is converting 56.99% of the time. While Louisville’s offense is thriving, the Cards defense isn’t playing...

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...

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. Businesslike approach to the game, scoring a very quiet 29 points while hitting four of four from behind the three-point line.Peyton Siva went...

Green Lot fanaticism

Charlie Strong, a cardboard cutout of him anyway, stirs up the tailgaters in the Green Lot of Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium prior to Saturday’s Louisville-South Florida football game. The fire truck from the seventies, owned by long-time UofL fan Ron Thomas, circled the parking lot several times, bells ringing, sirens screaming, and firing up the party lovers. As the Cardinals...

Video: Gorgui Dieng Loves College

As expected, Gorgui Dieng was one of the more popular players at media day on Sunday afternoon. Nearly every media member in attendance crowded around Gorgui throughout the hour that players were available. One of the more popular questions that Dieng was asked on Sunday is if he still intends on playing at Louisville for four years. Gorgui didn’t give an exact answer, but he did...

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. Hancock led all scorers with 29 points on 7-of-13 shooting. He also added six assists and two steals. Hancock really impressed me this afternoon. He’s very crafty...
