Re: Opening Night

:lol: Expected blowout materialized quickly into a 56-0 lead at halftime. 2nd and 3rd strings played the whole second half with the score a 14-14 tie; end score 70-14 in UL's favor. New super QB Lamar Jackson set a new record in passing for 6 TDs and rushing for 2 more in the first half.l.even ESPN ...

Re: maybe this year?

Still no official word from the NCAA over our scandal; however, it apparently hasn't affected recruiting much. And, if you believe in recruiting things are going like gangbusters. I take a more cautious approach and want them on campus and in games before I count stars.

Re: Looking toward 2016 already

7 days and counting down; isn't it time to get the CCR computers rolling? Haven't seen anything for this year yet. LOL. You can tell I'm anxious. UL is a 39.5 point favorite over Charlotte in the early line and the old Petrino would make that 50 by the end of the game. Time will tell if Bobby P has ...

Well, we won't be looking forward much longer. 13 more days for UL, and under the two week mark is SHORT TIME :mrgreen: . Everyone getting tense around here.

Re: UL - high expectations

FINALLY! Fall camp is here. Less than a month to go for the first game, 4 open practices. Talk shows are finally addressing football. The coaches, for a change, are bubbling. What more could you want?

First game day is the answer.

Re: UL - high expectations

Short time until Fall Camp around here. QB Lamar Jackson should make a giant leap into his sophomore season. His high school did not use a playbook and it was ad-lib all the time. He, and the coaches, admit that much of last year he had no idea how to read defenses or what progressions to make for p...

Re: Another conference network

Well, I'll have to agree that ESPN has made college football what it is today; and, made it what it isn't too. Sure, in the old days, pre-cable channels, I enjoyed reading the sports pages in the newspaper, especially the Sunday ones -- that was the way news got around back in those bad old days. I ...

Another conference network

ACC and ESPN will launch a conference network channel by 2019 according to recent reports. I am beginning to dislike these things as it means more football/basketball/baseball (major sports) off the regular channels and another "ESPN channel" you will have to purchase. And, lots of junk pr...

Re: UL - high expectations

UL vs. MARSHALL is an interesting "trap" game. Sandwiched between FSU and Clemson on UL's schedule; and, a home game at night at Marshall is a game I think might be difficult. http://www.thecardinalconnect.com/louisville-at-marshall-tabbed-as-one-of-college-footballs-biggest-trap-games/ Ma...

UL - high expectations

I am hoping the many rosy predictions for this UL team are mostly true. Tabbed as the 'breakout' team this year due to the most returning players in the ACC if not the whole country, http://www.thecardinalconnect.com/louisville-football-tabbed-as-top-breakout-team-in-the-country/ Story originally in...

maybe this year?

After the sad end to last year (self-imposed no tournament) maybe this year we will be in. Way too early polls have UL a 4 seed in the west; but, the school has not heard from the NCAA yet. Recruiting seems OK though it's hard to tell who took UL out of consideration. Swamp Daddy, fingers crossed :?

interesting UL game promotion

UL is offering a prize of 100,000 bucks at each of the Charlotte game (first game) or the NC State game to be divided among 100 students by a random drawing of those attending the game. The catch, and there always is one, is UL has to score an opening kickoff or 2nd half kickoff for a TD in either g...

Re: Looking toward 2016 already

Expectations are running sky high for the Cardinals this year; possibly extra hopes on football as basketball/NCAA is still up in the air. Recruiting is going strong with 2017 about done and some commits for 2018 out of Florida already. Stadium expansion will start at the end of this season to enlar...

Re: Spring Game reports

Hi: I think the spring game was in most ways strictly entertainment for the crowd. I think coach Petrino & staff have already made up their depth chart for the fall camp. Some spring game highlights by the ACC network at the site following: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qtdJKJQyKMM I think, ba...

Re: Looking toward 2016 already

Petrino's recruiting is going well, and, at a higher level than the last time around. Some good people here; good transfers sitting out, etc. Come on Fall.
