Found October 01, 2013 on The Cardinal Connect:
Philly The Temple Owls will have a tall task on Saturday afternoon as they host the No. 7 ranked Louisville Cardinals. WhileTemple is still looking for their first win of the season; their biggest weakness will likely be exploited on Saturday. Teddy Bridgewater and the Louisville passing offense ranks 13th in the country with 329 yards per game. Temple’s pass defense ranks 123rd out of 125 total FBS teams, giving up an average of 330 passing yards per game. First year Temple head coach Matt Rhule is aware of the challenge that he’ll face on Saturday with Heisman candidate quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. “The biggest thing that you can say about Teddy is he’s NFL ready and he’s an NFL-style quarterback. You can see him making checks at the line; you can see him changing protections. He’s operating in a pro-style system and he can make all the different throws,” Rhule said during his press conference on Monday. “So he’s somebody that, when you look at his skill set, he’s somebody that ...

Charlie Strong Hoping For Another Stadium Expansion

Charlie Strong’s first year as the head coach for the University of Louisville in 2010 was also the first year with the expanded seating at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium. The construction started in 2008 and on Sept. 4, 2010 was the first Louisville home game in the revamped stadium that now holds 55,000. The Louisville football program has seen quite a bit of growth over the...

NCAAF Pretenders/Contenders After September: Louisville

For Louisville, September was much of what we expected from them. A cupcake schedule with lop-sided results. How will this affect them going forward? Poor Cardinals — really. Sure, they’re undefeated and are the seventh-highest ranked team in the nation. Sure, they’re one season removed from 33-23 win over Florida in the Sugar Bowl. Sure, they still have their top-weapon, quarterback...

Good, Great, and Gamble Plays Week 6

Quarterbacks Good QB: Teddy Bridgewater, Louisville (at Temple)- What keeps him from being a great play is that he will be out of this game at halftime. The Cardinals are favored heavily in this one yet again so look for Teddy “Icewater” to look like the Heisman candidate that he is throwing at least three touchdowns before coming out. Good QB: Derek Carr, Fresno State (at...

Tall Order

As if an 0-4 start to the season wasn’t tough enough for the Temple football team, seventh-ranked Louisville and Heisman Trophy winner Teddy Bridgewater are coming to Lincoln Financial Field on Saturday. Coach Matt Rhule knows the Owls have a tall challenge ahead but wouldn’t call his team discouraged.

Teddy Bridgewater & DeVante Parker On The Same NFL Team? It Could Happen

The Cleveland Browns are clearly in rebuilding mode after trading former first round pick Trent Richardson. Now all of the reports out of Cleveland are that they are shopping either of their wide receivers, Josh Gordon or Greg Little. After dealing away one of the wide outs, they will add to their stockpile of early picks in next year’s draft.  You can do a lot with an abundance...

No. 7 Louisville prepares for Temple after a bye

While Louisville is getting ready for its conference opener, the Cardinals' biggest obstacle in winning a national championship could be their schedule. That was reinforced in this week's Top 25 rankings. The idle Cardinals (4-0) remained seventh after their bye, but Georgia leapfrogged them to No. 6 following its Southeastern Conference victory over LSU. Louisville'...

Kragthorpe Louisville Hire Named One Of The Worst In The Last Decade

In this week’s edition of the “Forde Yard Dash” from Yahoo! Sports’ Pat Forde, there was breakdown of the worst hires in college football over the last decade. It should come as no surprise that former Louisville head coach Steve Kragthorpe was near the top of the list. Rich Rodriguez at Michigan was the only hire ranked worse than Kragthorpe at Louisville. Steve Kragthorpe...

Pitino Showing Interest In Junior College Big Man

WTC Athletics At this point, all signs point to Louisville landing 6-foot-9 center Chinanu Onuaku on Friday afternoon when he’s set to make his college decision. Miami and Georgetown are also in the mix, but it certainly looks like Louisville is in the driver seat. Unfortunately, you can never be too sure when it comes to recruiting, which is why Louisville head coach Rick Pitino...

The Strong Seattle Pipeline Will Continue With Shaqquan Aaron The Seattle pipeline has been good to Rick Pitino over the years. Terrence Williams is still the most talented player to play under Pitino at Louisville, in my opinion. Peyton Siva is arguably one of the best point guards in school history and lead Louisville to their first national title in 27 years. Emerald City native Shaqquan Aaron could be the next Louisville star...

Punter Ryan Johnson has been money for Cards

University of Louisville redshirt junior Ryan Johnson picked up a scholarship from Charlie Strong and has now been solid in limited action for the Cardinals this season.

The Louisville Offense May Have Been Holding Back In The First Four Weeks

Shawn Watson’s offense has been pretty explosive so far this season. In the first four games, Louisville is averaging 48-points per game, which ranks seventh in the country. I realize the schedule hasn’t been very tough, but regardless, there still hasn’t been a team that has really challenged Louisville’s offense. The schedule will get tougher once you get to teams like...

Mack, Garcia continue to improve

University of Louisville sophomore right tackles Ryan Mack and Nacho Garcia have performed well during the Cardinals 4-0 start and continue improve as conference play begins this weekend.

Louisville-Temple Preview

While Louisville is getting ready for its conference opener, the Cardinals' biggest obstacle in winning a national championship could be their schedule. Louisville's opponents are a combined 20-28, which isn't likely to help the Cardinals (4-0) when the first BCS standings are released in October. A win in Saturday's American Athletic Conference opener at Temple...
