Jackson rushes for 121 yards, Louisville disposes of NC State

Post from: When his receivers weren’t dropping passes in their hands, Lamar Jackson was throwing the ball everywhere else in the University of Louisville’s 20-13 win at North Carolina State.

VIDEO: Louisville WR James Quick Makes Insane One-Hand Catch On Sideline

The Louisville Cardinals have not gotten off to a great start so far this season. Well, that’s kind of an understatement. Louisville is 0-3 so far and trying to earn its first win against North Carolina State — never an easy task. But that doesn’t seem like such a daunting idea when you have a wide receiver like James Quick. Actually, Quick seems to make everything look easy...

True or false, allegations embarrass UofL

Post from: Shocking, the allegations that Andre McGee was compensating escorts/prostitutes to have sex with basketball recruits being pursued by the University of Louisville. Dumb, if true. Unbelievably stupid. Hard to fathom. The allegations, whether factual or not, are a collective slap in the face of UofL fans. Wet dreams for many University of Kentucky fans. A female named...

Louisville Investigating New Book’s Sexual Allegations Against Men’s Basketball Team

Rick Pitino has kept the Louisville Cardinals’ men’s basketball team at a very high level over the years. The program has competed for a national championship basically every year.

First class flight seats now intended for Houston OL

Offensive linemen usually don’t get the same kind of recognition that quarterbacks, running backs, or wide receivers do. They do all the dirty work and without them, their offense doesn’t survive. In his first year as head coach, Houston’s Tom Herman has done an exceptional job with the Cougars. The team is 3-0 and pulled off a big win over the Louisville Cardinals two weeks...

Louisville back in the win column

Post from: A win is a win is a win, especially satisfying when it’s the first one. The University of Louisville football team badly needed a victory after three close losses.

Lack Of Running Game Has Doomed Bobby Petrino’s Offense

Three weeks into the 2015 season Bobby Petrino and the Louisville Cardinals are still without a win.

The Big Dance: Dabo Swinney Whips It Not So Good

There must be something about the Louisville Cardinals football team that gets opponents fired up.

Whatever it is, whenever opponents defeat Louisville, they can’t seem to stop dancing. First, it was the Houston Cougars...

Clemson-Louisville Notebook: a familiar replay issue arises

Clemson’s predictably ragged 20-17 win over Louisville on Thursday night (due to the fact that both teams were playing their second game in a six-day span) was a win the Tigers ultimately deserved. Viewed strictly in terms of fairness, it’s a good thing Louisville did not tie or win the game on its final possession. Clemson never should have had to sweat out that last defensive...
