For the University of Louisville the Tight End position appears to finally have an opportunity to have some depth. However, some newcomers will have to prove themselves and the lone returner with major minutes from last season will have to show improvement.
Gerald Christian is currently listed as the back-up in the second slot on the depth chart that was recently released. ...

The Louisville Cardinals 2013 basketball national championship rings are crazy slick. We personally like the diamond in the bird's eye in the middle. Classy touch.
