Petrino Looking To See More From The Passing Game

Photo: JD Coffey I think we can all agree that stats throughout the first two games of the season aren’t worth much. In my opinion, you need at least three or maybe four games before you can accurately evaluate a team with the stat sheet. That said, I’d be lying if I said that I expected Louisville’s passing attack to be ranked sixth in the ACC after just two games. The running...

Photo: The Cardinal Connect Bobby Petrino and the Louisville Cardinal football program will take on the Murray State Racers in their second game of the 2014 season this evening. Given the fact that this is the one annual game against an FCS opponent, it’s a little tough to predict who’ll be the MVP’s, considering it could be anyone really.

Bobby Ball = More Production From The Tight End Position

Photo: JD Coffey One of the few areas of ‘frustration’ for me last football season was what I perceived (and still do) to be an under-utilization of Gerald Christian. A seemingly very talented tight end logged just 28 receptions in 2013, an average of 2.1 per game, in an offense that averaged over 23 completions per game. With 4 touchdowns and 426 yards on the season, 15.21...

The Green Lot was near capacity, too, except for...

Gerald Christian Poised For A Monster Season Under Petrino’s Offense

Pete Cautilli | The Cardinal Connect Most of Card nation found it sometimes hard to distinguish tight end Gerald Christian from running back Dominique Brown last season.  Both Brown and Christian run with violence, and defenders quiver at the thought of putting shoulder pads on either man.  The block number style on the Cardinals 2013 jerseys made the numbers 8 and 0 look almost...

The Louisville Offense May Have Been Holding Back In The First Four Weeks

Shawn Watson’s offense has been pretty explosive so far this season. In the first four games, Louisville is averaging 48-points per game, which ranks seventh in the country. I realize the schedule hasn’t been very tough, but regardless, there still hasn’t been a team that has really challenged Louisville’s offense. The schedule will get tougher once you get to teams like...

You have a brand new head coach in Lexington who had the opportunity to make some mistakes in game one, and correct them in game two (mainly the QB spot) all in preparation for game three; against the Cards. You then have a Louisville team coming off an above average season that had it’s speed bumps and ultimately...
