With position company like DeVante Parker, Damian Copeland, and Eli Rogers you don’t often hear enough about an extremely reliable wide receiver in Andrell Smith. With an knack for going un-noticed at times, his game has been far from quiet on paper.
After missing some time during his senior year of high school, Smith came to Louisville as a 2-star prospect out of Miami...

As we continue to hand out 1st Quarter grades for the University of Louisville football program, let’s take a look at the Cardinal wide receivers.

Wide receiver was thought to be one of the deeper positions for Louisville heading into the 2012 season. With three games in the book, the Cardinal wide-outs have lived up to the hype. Even with...
For the second week in a row, North Carolina was lamenting a poor start.
Bryn Renner threw five touchdown passes and the Tar Heels rallied from a 29-point half-time deficit, but came up short in a 39-34 loss to No. 19 Louisville on Saturday.
This one looked painfully similar to last week's loss, with Renner overcoming a rough first half to throw four second-half touchdown passes...

As a nickname, ''Honey Mustard'' doesn't have the same ring to it as ''Honey Badger.''
Damian Copeland's Louisville teammates say the moniker is their way of saying they like the wide receiver's style. But what they like even more: Copeland is contributing for the No. 19 Cardinals.

Here is what week two’s depth chart looked like in Louisville’s press release game notes. Maybe it’s me, but I don’t see a lot of changes from week one to week two. I suppose if it’s not broke, don’t fix it. I can’t think of any particular starter who may have deserved to be moved to second string, other than punt returner Kai Dominguez. I hate to single him out, but...
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Not known for lavishing praise, Louisville coach Charlie Strong found himself acting out of character.
He was happy to do it after his No. 25 Cardinals thoroughly beat in-state rival Kentucky 32-14 in their opener. Offense sparked much of his elation, as the Cardinals outgained the Wildcats 466-373 and scored on five of their first seven possessions.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- For No. 25 Louisville, playing a game it could boast about was just as important as bragging rights against in-state rival Kentucky.
The Cardinals succeeded on both counts Sunday.
Jeremy Wright ran for 105 yards and three touchdowns and Louisville opened the game with three long scoring drives en route to a 32-14 victory against the Wildcats. That claimed...
Despite Bryce McNeal going A-Wall and Michaelee Harris suffering a season ending knee injury, wide receiver is still one of the deeper positions for Louisville. Kentucky returns some experience at wide receiver, but outside of senior La’Rod King, the Wildcats are relying on a lot of inexperienced and unproven players.
Although La’Rod King has shown some...
