The Cardinal Connect:
Defense - This week’s standout performer may not be found on paper at games end. Having clearly the strongest season to his career, senior Defensive Tackle Brandon Dunn is often apparent to be a man among boys.

Opponents are now having to game plan around Brandon and take notice. It’s about time we all do the same.

Unfortunately for the Bulls, Louisville has the 2nd strongest rushing attack in the league averaging almost exactly what USF is giving up at 1...

When coach Charlie Strong and the Louisville Cardinals invade Tampa Bay to square off against the South Florida Bulls (2-4,2-0) on Saturday afternoon, there will be several similarities and connections between the two AAC squads.

The expectations are high this season for Rick Pitino and the Louisville men’s basketball program. The Cardinals return nearly 75% of their scoring from last year’s national championship team. However, a couple of key returning pieces haven’t been able to make much of an impact just yet. Junior forward Chane Behanan has been a big presence in the front-court for Rick Pitino...

I think it’s safe to say that had it not been for Luke Hancock’s Final Four heroic act, the Louisville Basketball program wouldn’t be revealing their third national championship banner on Nov. 9th in their season opener.
Hancock’s momentum followed him throughout the summer where he competed with the United States team in the 2013 World University Games. He was one...
