Former Kansas QB Jake Heaps Likely To Star For Miami In The Season Opener Against Louisville

Photo: Stacy Revere – Getty Images With exactly one month until kicking off their 2014 season against the Louisville Cardinals, it appears that the Miami Hurricanes have learned who their starting quarterback will be. Unfortunately for Miami, this decision wasn’t made because one guy simply out played the rest of the QB’s. 6-foot-1, 210-pound, redshirt senior Jake Heaps will...

DeVante Parker & Eli Rogers Tabbed As The Best Receiving Duo In The ACC

Photo: Mitchell Leff |Getty Images The Louisville football team returns plenty of depth at multiple positions from last season’s offense, but we’d be foolish not to acknowledge the wide receivers as the deepest of them all. While there are a handful of very talented wide-out’s, the two most experienced are seniors DeVante Parker & Eli Rogers. Both have been impact performers...

Louisville Football’s Black Helmets Have Arrived & They’re Awesome

When the Louisville football team kicks off their season against Miami on Sept. 1, they’ll be wearing black uniforms for the first time in five years. It was pretty much assumed that Louisville would have a “blackout” for the season opener as Petrino takes the sidelines for his second stint as the head coach. Petrino himself confirmed the news earlier this month at the ACC...

Louisville Unranked In The 2014 Preseason Coaches Poll

Pete Cautilli | The Cardinal Connect The 2014 College Football Preseason Poll was released on Thursday afternoon. I don’t consider it much of a surprise, but Bobby Petrino and the Louisville Cardinals were not featured in the top 25. It’s not that I don’t think this team is worthy of a top 25 vote, however most national projections show Louisville right outside of the top 25...

Kentucky Has Returned More Than 2,000 Tickets For The Governor’s Cup Game

Andy Lyons | Getty Images It’s been pretty evident over the past few years that the Kentucky fan base has basically thrown in the towel with the football side of their in-state rivalry with Louisville. There used to be a healthy dose of trash talking that went back and forth between both fan bases, however these days we rarely hear a peep out of the BBN when it comes to the gridiron...

Four Star Guard Donovan Mitchell Will Visit Louisville Next Week

Photo | 247 Sports When referring to the top targets for Rick Pitino and his staff in the 2015 class, Donovan Mitchell isn’t a name you’ve been hearing for very long. But the New York City native has had a sensational summer and the Louisville staff took notice. Heading into the July open contact periods it appeared that the staff had identified which prospects they would heavily...

DeVante Parker Has Big Goals For The 2014 Season

Photo | ESPN.com With an offensive mastermind like Bobby Petrino on the sidelines, the sky is the limit for senior wide receiver DeVante Parker. I don’t think it’s out of line to say that the Louisville native could go down as the top wide receiver in the history of the program. Parker ranks third all time in touchdown receptions for his career and still has one season left....

Dominique Brown & Michael Dyer Tabbed As The Best RB Tandem In The ACC

Photo | 247 Sports The running game at the college and pro level isn’t what it used to be. Having the best ball carrier in the country is still a valuable asset, however the most successful ground attacks usually come from those who have a strong tandem or running back by committee system. Entering the 2013 season, Louisville was thought to have a very deep backfield with Senorise...

Bobby Petrino Is Very Appreciative Of Charlie Strong

Pete Cautilli | The Cardinal Connect Former Louisville head football coach Charlie Strong’s departure from the program could have been handled a little bit better, but in the end, I think Cardinal fans should be very appreciative of Strong. Not talking to his team prior to his decision to leave being officially announced wasn’t a wise move, in my opinion. But it appears that...
