With the NCAA not requiring players to sit out a year after transferring as long as they’ve graduated, the college athletics transfer rate is at an all time high.
We’ve learned that Louisville is one of the latest programs to have a player to transfer.

Louisville’s offensive output has been the source of criticism since the out-start of this new season. “Lack of identity” is what one will most commonly hear whenever a discussion of Louisville’s offensive production is being had.
People typically look at shooting percentages and draw their conclusion from the singular statistic. While shooting...
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) Louisville players' resolve to overcome challenges is one reason coach Bobby Petrino is excited about the program's fourth consecutive bowl appearance.
The No. 20 Cardinals (9-3) had to replace quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, and that was before a preseason foot injury to star receiver DeVante Parker further complicated matters. Louisville has played three quarterbacks...

It’s the same thought I’ve had throughout every single Louisville game. Will this work against Kentucky? I’ve even watched Kentucky games with a similar thought process. How we will defend this? Every result, every statistic, and even every possession I have viewed through these lenses, analyzed for use to support and defend what could happen...

With wins over Indiana and UNC-Wilmington last week, Rick Pitino and the Louisville Cardinals remain at No. 4 in both the AP Poll and the USA Today Coaches Poll. Louisville will be back in action on Saturday at Western Kentucky.

GREENSBORO, N.C. (theACC.com) – Louisville junior Montrezl Harrell has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Basketball Player of the Week for the second time this season, while NC State’s Caleb Martin was selected the ACC Rookie of the Week in a vote by a select media panel.
Harrell, also named the National Player of the Week by CBSSports.com, averaged 20.0 points, 14...
Despite getting a double-digit win on Sunday night over UNC-Wilmington, Louisville head coach Rick Pitino wasn’t very happy with his team’s performance. In his post-game press conference that lasted less than two minutes, Pitino said his team was “hunting points” and that UNC-Wilmington outplayed them.
It turns out Pitino wasn’t the only one upset with Louisville’s performance...
Coach Rick Pitino is not happy. Practice sessions are going to be even more grueling for members of the University of Louisville basketball team following a sluggish 68-57 over North Carolina Wilmington.
Too much freelancing, players looking for shots instead of open teammates, not respecting the opponent until an 11-point lead is whittled down to two points with less than seven...
James Blackmon Jr of Indiana brought the hammer down on Montrezl Harrell during Louisville’s 94-74 victory over IU. They have have lost the game, but the Hoosiers had a highlight. That’s .. something.
One wonders where the offense is going to come from with the University of Louisville making it back to Madison Square Garden for a showdown with a good three-point shooting Indiana basketball team.
Rick Pitino’s teams have always defied being stereotyped, especially this one which had been shooting inconsistently, muchless hitting three’s. They would put that behind them, putting...
The No. 13 UK Hoops team rallied in the second half to outscore the Louisville Cardinals by a 48-26 margin to win 77-68. The first half of the game resembled that of the game played on this same court two years ago, when the Cats were down by as many as 14 points before rallying to win that day. Lat […]
A few thoughts after a frantic, almost directionless, but inevitable 82-57 win for the University of Louisville basketball team over Florida International:
–UofL is lacking a leader right now, a player who can assess the situation, take charge, communicate what needs to be done, demand, expect and trust his teammates to follow through. Just having the ability to get to the basket...
The identity of Rick Pitino teams holds true for this new Louisville squad: The Cardinals once again possess athletic defenders who close off passing lanes and revel in a high-energy, helter-skelter style of basketball. The victim Tuesday night was Ohio State, a team which — unlike Louisville — thrived in settled halfcourt situations.
The Cardinals’ relentless defense —...
D’Angelo Russell is another one of those Central High School players who showed no interest in playing his college basketball at the University of Louisville. He’s a 6-foot-5 freshman who will be a starting guard for Ohio State when the teams tip off at 9:35 p.m. Tuesday at the KFC Yum! Center.
Russell joins a list from basketball greats from Central that includes...
Louisville basketball’s home arena, the KFC Yum! Center, is currently in its fifth season of operation. It’s played host to quite a few memorable contests in that short time, including a couple Louisville-Kentucky games.
Rick Pitino thinks tonight’s game against Ohio State could produce the best atmosphere in the history of the Cardinals’ home confines.

Kentucky apparently spent every waking minute the past two weeks studying the tendencies of University of Louisville quarterback Reggie Bonnafon, knowing what he was going to do before he did. The UofL freshman was out of sorts, running for his life on every possession.
Bonnafon still holding the ball too long, getting sacked twice for losses of eight and nine yards. Completng only...
Louisville defeated Savannah State on Monday night in a game that looked like it featured a Division-1 NCAA team playing a local high school. The final score was 87-26. It took Savannah State nearly 16 minutes to score a single point, and Louisville led 41-7 going into halftime. It could have been worse. There was...Read More
Rick Pitino’s Louisville program is known for its smothering pressure defense, and it is on a whole different level tonight against Savannah State. Louisville outscored the Tigers 41-7 in the first half. It is not that uncommon for a power program to keep a team to 30 or 40 points in a game, but single digits in a half? That is impressive.
As a team, Louisville has six blocks...

Deceased Louisville Cardinals cheerleader Dani Cogswell has been confirmed to have died in a football player's apartment over the summer.
Earlier today, we learned the unfortunate news that Louisville quarterback Will Gardner would miss the remainder of the season. To his credit, Gardner seems to be keeping his head up, and took to Twitter today to thank his fans for their support.
I would like to thank everyone that has reached out to me, it really means a lot and God has a plan for everything!!
— Will Gardner...
This season has been up-and-down for Louisville sophomore quarterback Will Gardner. The Cardinals starter has played well when healthy, throwing for 1,669 yards and 12 touchdowns to just three interceptions. However, injuries have plagued Gardner this season, and now he is being shut down for the year due to a knee injury, according to ESPN’s Brett McMurphy.
