The 2013 College Football Season is just 45 days away, which means the preseason award watch lists are being released daily. Louisville has already had multiple players named to numerous different watch lists and on Thursday morning two more Cardinals received the preseason honor. Louisville running backs Senorise Perry and Dominique Brown have been added to the initial watch list...

Louisville Football Position Preview: Linebackers

At first glance the Linebacker position for the University of Louisville appears to be one of the most talented positions on the field.  However, the second look exposes the depth, or lack there of. Leading the defense at the Middle Linebacker (Mike) spot is senior and likely team captain Preston Brown.  As one of only three senior starters on the defensive side for the Cards,...

Louisville Football Was Mentioned Quite A Bit At Yesterday’s SEC Media Day

The circus that is the SEC Media Day got underway on Tuesday morning in Hoover, AL. The annual event is a time for the college football snobs of the world and the media that covers them to gather and display arrogance as a whole. In all seriousness, I recognize how dominant the Southeastern Conference has been on gridiron, particularly over the last decade. With that said, I’m...

Rick Pitino Has Won An ESPY For Coach/Manager Of The Year

It was announced during the red carpet ESPY preshow that Rick Pitino has won the 2013 ESPY for “Best Coach/Manager.” Pitino will not be in Los Angeles to accept the award, but Russ Smith, Wayne Blackshear and Peyton Siva will be on hand to accept it for him. This means Russ Smith will be at a podium with a microphone on national television. You’re not going to want to miss...

Looking Ahead to Fall: Two Under-the-Radar Players Who Could Make An Impact This Season

One of the biggest advantages that the Louisville football team has entering the 2013 season is the amount of experience and talent that it returns from last year’s 11-2, Sugar Bowl-winning squad. Familiar names like Bridgewater, Parker, Rogers, and Pryor highlight the roster and are set to lead the team in their attempt at another stellar season. While the names listed above,...

Wayne Blackshear Making Major Progress This Summer

  Wayne Blackshear is one of the more highly regarded players to sign with the University of Louisville in the last decade. Blackshear was a five star prospect coming out of high school and is one of just six McDonalds All Americans to commit to Rick Pitino at Louisville. As a true freshman in 2011-12 Blackshear was injured for most of the season after having two shoulder surgeries...

Russ Smith & Peyton Siva Hanging With DeMarcus Cousins & John Wall In L.A.

Peyton Siva and Russ Smith arrived in Los Angeles yesterday afternoon for Wednesday’s 2013 ESPY Awards. Rick Pitino is nominated for “Coach of the Year” and if he is to win it, Siva, Smith and Wayne Blackshear will accept the award on his behalf. Siva and Smith, arguably the best backcourt duo in Louisville history, were at the ESPY pre-party on Tuesday night hanging out with...

Harrington, Butler ready to shine on offense

B.J. Butler and Jalen Harrington were not listed on the updated depth chart released by the University of Louisville. But both figure to be key players for the Cardinals’ offense this season after a switch from defense late last season.

Video: Rick Pitino Wins ESPY For “Best Coach/Manager” On The Red Carpet

Although you didn’t see it or hear about it during the actual awards ceremony, Louisville head basketball coach Rick Pitino won an ESPY Award last night for “Best Coach/Manager.” I understand that if every award was announced, the show would last entirely too long. With that said, I think Coach/Manager of the year is an award that deserves a little attention. This award wasn’t...

Stephan Van Treese Will Have A Bigger Role Than Most Expect Next Season

If you polled the Louisville fan base and asked which two post players they’d like to see Rick Pitino use in the starting lineup next season, I think most would probably go with the duo of Montrezl Harrell and Chane Behanan. Some may suggest Mangok Mathiang at the center because of his height. I doubt you’d hear many throw fifth year senior Stephan Van Treese’s name in the...

Pitino sees big men again; then on the move

The 6-foot-7 prospect is also still considering Kentucky, Kansas, Florida, Georgetown, Oregon, Connecticut and UNLV. Surprisingly, Oubre wasn’t one of the front-court prospects that received attention from the Louisville...
