The Cardinal Connect:
With Louisville’s wide receivers being such a huge advantage for Saturday’s game, Kentucky defensive coordinator D.J. Elliot has stated more than once this week that the Wildcats will look to bring a lot of pressure to make things as uncomfortable as possible for Teddy Bridgewater. Unfortunately for Kentucky, Bridgewater may be at his best when he’s facing pressure.
If you’ve watched Teddy Bridgewater play over the past two years, then you know that he actually makes some of his more impressive plays when he’s being pressured. Even if Kentucky is able to come out and get a couple of stops early on, long term, I just don’t see a scenario of how they can keep Louisville’s passing attack out of the end-zone.
BEST OF MAXIM

The thing about Teddy Bridgewater is that he has no fear.
Watch him get creamed by Florida’s Dominique Easley, surviving a knockout blow on his first play in the Sugar Bowl. Watch him get to his feet and complete a 25-yard pass to Eli Rogers for a first down on the next play. Watch him pick Florida apart.

University of Louisville athletic director Tom Jurich was a guest speaker to the Louisville Rotary club on Thursday afternoon. Jurich talked about many things during his speech, including paying college players, Louisville’s 2013 basketball championship, the move to the ACC and Teddy Bridgewater’s rise to fame.
One comment from his speech that stood out to me the most was what...
LEXINGTON, Ky. – Teddy Bridgewater was the MVP of the Governor’s Cup game on Saturday afternoon as the University of Louisville beat Kentucky 27-13. But the game ball should go to the entire U of L defense after playing a stellar game against the Wildcats before 65,445 fans in Commonwealth Stadium.
There would be no blowout.
Uncomfortable feeling all game long, with all the enthusiasm on the Kentucky side of the ball, the Wildcats driven by emotion.
Fortunately, the game is 60 minutes.
The adrenaline level of UK’s defensive line, dropping like at lead balloon in the second half. Teddy Bridgewater not letting them off the field, draining them, of the extra motivation, revealing...
I’m not really sure where to start. Louisville defeated Kentucky 27-13 to claim the Governor’s Cup for the third consecutive year, which is a good thing, right? A win is always good, but Louisville was less than impressive today.
I’m not exactly what team showed up in the first half. I credit Kentucky for showing up with a lot of effort and enthusiasm. To be honest, Kentucky...
First-year head coach Mark Stoops came to Kentucky with a strong reputation on defense. On Saturday in the annual Governor’s Cup clash with Louisville, fans got a glimpse of why as his unit gave the Wildcats a fighting chance against the seventh-ranked Cardinals and their Heisman hopeful quarterback, Teddy Bridgewater.
Unfortunately for Kentucky football program, one of their biggest weaknesses will likely be exploited on Saturday afternoon.

It’ll be tough for any defense in the country to contain the Louisville...

Over the years, it’s been pretty well noted that Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is his toughest critic. Despite how many good things he does during games, it’s the one bad thing that sticks in his mind. I’m sure deep down, Teddy knows how great of a quarterback that he is, but it’s this mindset that allows him to continuously improve. That mindset is apparently...
University of Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater found a new weapon last week, connecting with tight end Gerald Christian for five catches and a touchdown. The former Florida transfer is a big part of the U of L offense.
Wager Wednesday giveth, and Wager Wednesday taketh. After opening the season 4-1, we crashed back to Earth in Week 2 with a putrid 1-4 performance, leaving us at .500 on the season. I guess the commenter who called me a "dumdass" last week knew what he was talking about. We're still not completely into the conference schedules, so let's stick to the five-game format...
I’m not sure what was better on this play, the throw from Teddy Bridgewater or the amazing catch by DeVante Parker.
I’m joking, this is an amazing catch by Parker to finally get Louisville in the endzone and up 10-3 on rival Kentucky.
