Found September 09, 2012 on The Cardinal Connect:
Charlie Strong and the Louisville Cardinals used Teddy Bridgewater’s 344 passing yards to cruise past Missouri State for a 35-7 win. Louisville scored a touchdown in each quarter. One thing I feared going into this game was that Louisville regress from the first game. Technically, it’s an easy thing to do when you face an FCS opponent. If you don’t win by nearly 40 points, some fans will look at it as if you didn’t play well. I wouldn’t say that this team took a step back after this game, but I definitely don’t think they took a step forward. Teddy Bridgewater looked great once again, but the running attack wasn’t nearly as successful as it was in week one. Is Missouri State’s front seven just that much better than Kentucky’s? Only time will tell. I really looked forward to being truly tested next week as North Carolina comes to town. Although the Cards will still be tested, UNC is coming off a bad loss to Wake Forest, which won’t help Louisville’s strength of schedule. The defense...

Today is the first day of the open contact period where recruiters can make in-person contact with prospects. As I mentioned earlier this week, Rick Pitino is in Florida visiting with Chris Jones, a JUCO point guard at Northwest Florida State College. However, Jones isn’t the only prospect that earned a visit from the future hall-of-fame coach this afternoon. While in the sunshine...

North Carolina's speed to get stiffer test

It shouldn't have come to any surprise that North Carolina's fast-break offense was seriously tested in Saturday's game at Wake Forest. The Demon Deacons are dozens and dozens of notches higher up the totem pole than Elon, Carolina's opening-game opponent and 62-0 victims that day. Wake is faster, bigger, stronger, and deeper. Plus, the Deacons may have one of the...

Ty Kish of CityLeagueHoopsTV recently uploaded a Gorgui Dieng highlight mix from the Adidas Nations event in Southern California earlier this summer.

Jarrell Martin, a 5-star forward from Baton Rouge, LA., is expected to receive a visit from a member of the Louisville coaching staff today. With Rick Pitino and Kevin Keatts both heading to Hargrave Military Academy, I can only assume that Louisville assistant Wyking Jones is the one who will travel to see Martin. As of last month, Martin, a 6-foot-8 hybrid forward had trimmed his...

Get well soon Dominique Brown

Dominique Brown has been the missing cog in the University of Louisville football team’s offense thus far, having incurred a knee injury during pre-season workouts.
