Tonight is the annual meeting between the Louisville Cardinals and the Cincinnati Bearcats. I'm excited for the game, you are excited and my guest at this time is excited. That man is Mark Ennis. He is Mengus22 on twitter. I'm sure a lot of you follow him already. He runs the Big East blog Big East Coast Bias on SB Nation.
Mark is very knowledgeable about the league, but especially Louisville. He answered questions about Teddy Bridgewater, Lorenzo Mauldin, what UC can do to win, what Big East team will make a coaching change and more. We hit up a lot of things.
Questions in bold.
Louisville has a very good quarterback in Teddy Bridgewater. What do you think makes him so awesome?
The best thing about Teddy is his being cool under pressure. He's so good at moving around in the pocket, being mobile but still looking for receivers, and when necessary tucking it and running. Keeping plays alive is his biggest strength.
DeVante Parker is the Cards ...
BEST OF MAXIM
Louisville kept their undefeated alive by coming out on top of a wild Big East contest against Cincinnati. Teddy Bridgewater passed for over 400 yards and he and Munchie Legaux were each able to put together late touchdown drives to send the game in to overtime. It was a wild fourth quarter as Louisville battled back against a Cincinnati defense that was looking gassed perhaps overdoing...
“I say each week it’s gonna’ be like this so just prepare yourself for it.” That was Charlie Strong’s opening statement in the post-game press conference following his team’s 34-31 overtime win against Ohio River Rival Cincinnati on Friday night. Strong’s team moves to 8-0 on the season and 3-0 in conference play. The Cardinals thrilling win helped bring the Keg of...
For the first time since 2007, Louisville captured college football's coolest rivalry trophy from Cincinnati last night. The undefeated Cardinals were in a celebrating mood, prompting redshirt senior quarterback Will Stein to do a Keg-of-Nails stand.
The University of Louisville football team survived with a 34-31 win over Cincinnati on Friday night at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium. The Cardinals are now 8-0 on the season after John Wallace's 30-yard field goal in overtime. Here are a few quotes from the locker room after the Big East Conference game.
U of L defensive end Lorenzo Mauldin was a difference-maker in the Cardinals 27-25 victory over South Florida. The sophomore, who now leads the team in tackles for loss and sacks, says he's "just working hard."
Rick Pitino was a guest last night on SiriusXM’s “Basketball and Beyond” radio show. During the interview, Pitino went into great detail about how he actually had agreed to become the next head coach at Michigan in 2001, but backed out at the very last minute and decided to take the Louisville job instead.
“The day that I committed to Louisville, I signed an agreement to...

We spent a good part of the show discussing the details behind Rick Pitino having a last second change of heart and taking the Louisville job after signing an agreement with Michigan. Where would Louisville be if Pitino didn’t come?

At times it felt like we were witnessing a Big 12 game out there as Louisville (8-0, 3-0) pulled out a crazy 34-31 overtime victory over rival Cincinnati (5-2, 1-1) and took home The Keg of Nails for the first time in five seasons. Even sweeter for Louisville is the fact that they improved to 8-0 and kept their chances at being in a BCS bowl alive and well.
Before the game Munchie...
Cincinnati head coach Butch Jones met with the media earlier this week to recap the Bearcats loss to Toledo and briefly look ahead to this week’s matchup with Louisville. Here are some quotes from Jones when asked about Louisville, courtesy of GoBearcats.com.
“Offensively when you think of Louisville, you think of Teddy Bridgewater and he can manage their offense. Extremely accurate...
While Louisville looks to keep alive the dream of an undefeated season, Cincinnati can only try to ruin that hope after blowing its own chance at one.
The toughest test yet for the 16th-ranked Cardinals, and maybe their biggest until the season finale, appears to come Friday night when they host a Bearcats team coming off its first loss.
All but one of Louisville's victories...
I don't feel like doing a whole post on the Louisville 34-31 victory over Cincinnati, so I'll do 10 things that stand out to me after the game.
1) Damn that 4th quarter was a lot of fun
You had Teddy Bridgewater throwing gorgeous deep passes on a 93 yard drive to tie the score. DeVante Parker broke a catch for 64 yards when a 1 handed Deven Drane made a horrible...
