Hearns has been verbally committed to Florida since last February, but there has been some speculation that Hearns may be second guessing his commitment to the Gators.

The MVP of that game? Cardinals QB Teddy Bridgewater, who...

The Louisville Cardinals were the No. 1 team in many preseason polls, but lost an early five-point decision to Duke in the Bahamas without star center Gorgui Dieng. Now, after the Blue Devils and Michigan were dealt their first losses over the weekend, Rick Pitino’s Cards set atop the AP poll for only the second time in history. The later part of the notation seems ironic with...

The Cards had a rough start offensively and UConn couldn’t seem to miss in the first half. Peyton Siva picking up two quick fouls in the first...
When the new AP and USA Today college basketball polls are released on Monday, there’s a good chance you’ll see the Louisville Cardinals sitting on top of them. With Duke losing to North Carolina State on Saturday, and Michigan falling to Ohio State on Sunday, the Cards would appear to be next in line to sit at number one. Duke could still make a claim for the top spot since...
