LOUISVILLE RUMORS & GOSSIP

North Carolina-Louisville Preview

Louisville may boast the ACC's best backcourt duo in Terry Rozier and Chris Jones. The pressure will be on the 10th-ranked Cardinals' front line Saturday, however, when they try to avenge a loss from three weeks ago against No. 13 North Carolina. The Cardinals (17-3, 5-2 ACC) have won 80-68 at Pittsburgh and 81-72 at Boston College since losing 63-52 at home against then-No. 4 Duke...

Louisville 82 – Boston College 71: Jones & Rozier Carry Cards In Boston

Todd Grantham flirts with Oakland but will stay with Louisville

News broke yesterday that Louisville Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Grantham was interviewing for the same position with the NFL’s Oakland Raiders. Today, it was announced that the Raiders had offered him a two-year contract. Last year, Grantham signed a five-year contract with Louisville when he jumped from Georgia so I’m going to take a small leap and say that’s a significant...

Eight Louisville Players Have Been Invited To The 2015 NFL Draft Combine

AP Photo/Dave MartinThe University of Louisville football program had some major representation in last year’s NFL Draft. Louisville was one of just three programs to have three players drafted in the first round. It’s highly unlikely that we see three Cardinals taken in the first round of this year’s draft, but we may see more players drafted overall than we did a year ago...

Pitino resurrects Louisville offense

Post from: Rick Pitino has been there a few times before during his illustrious career, facing skepticism, doubt and criticism. Even having to admit that he didn’t have enough talent.

Pitino resorts to the beard thing again

Post from: Reports of the return of the bearded approach for the University of Louisville basketball team are true, Coach Rick Pitino showing up with stubble at his pre-game press conference. A rally beard, he called it, something to help the team get going again. Possibly an over-reaction to losing one game, that 11-point loss to Duke last weekend. Not an original approach...

Harrell’s loss as captain is a big deal

Post from: Montrezl Harrell has stepped aside as co-captain of the University of Louisville basketball team, leaving Wayne Blackshear as captain after 18 games, nearing the stretch drive. Whether Harrell was asked to step aside or he wanted to be relieved is not clear, the action is almost unprecedented. Why would a coach ask a player to quit being a team captain? Why would Harrell not...

Big men of little consequence for Louisville basketball

Post from: So many big men, probably the most ever on a University of Louisville basketball roster. They make quite an impression in airport concourses. But that’s where the positive impact ends. So little impact in games against good teams, not much better against the others. Chinanu Onuaku lacking focus. Rick Pitino can choose from 6-foot-10 Chinanu Onuaku, 6-foot-10 Magok...

Kentucky-Louisville, UL Edition: Where It Went Wrong For The Cards

For the seventh time in the last eight meetings, Louisville took a loss to Kentucky, this time in a 58-50 final. The Cardinals gave a great defensive effort, but once again the Louisville offense was shaky. Just as in their victory over Ohio State in the Big 10-ACC challenge, the Cardinals went through stretches where their halfcourt offense was not at all effective. It’s easy...
