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...

Ex-Gators shook off rust to help the Cards

Entering the 2013 Football Season much was expected out of a handful of transfers; most of whom sat out last season waiting to become eligible.

Louisville vs. Rutgers: Predicted Impact Players

Offense - With the status of leading wide receiver DeVante Parker up in the air for Thursday’s matchup against Rutgers it makes for an interesting week of projections.  Part of me thinks Parker will suit up and have the game of his life…just because.  Another part of me thinks with Teddy Bridgewater and the Tight End positions settling in nicely to the West Coast system...

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...

To me this rivalry game has a different feel to it than normal. 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...

Five takeaways from Louisville’s win over EKU

Team was not focused With the fact Louisville just came off a sound butt-kicking of Ohio in week 1 and have the Governor’s Cup battle this week against Kentucky, there was a decent chance we’d see a less than perfect performance against the Colonels. Now, that’s not to mean the Cards played poorly because I don’t believe you can say a team played poorly in a 44-7 win, but...

Lousiville 44 – Eastern Kentucky 7: Cards Cruise Past The Colonels

Over the years, I’ve made it no secret that I despise games against FCS opponents. Because you’re playing such an inferior opponent, you just expect to win by an unreasonable margin. Regardless of the score, you can’t help but expect a nearly flawless performance due to the lack of competition. Charlie Strong and the Louisville Cardinals didn’t cover the 40-point spread on...
