It was a night full of debauchery and shenanigans on last nights episode of LiveWith55. I wanted you guys to have a great product so I erased last nights episode of LiveWith55 and did a short run down this morning in a segment I like to call DelayedWith55. So click on the link, listen to the show and accept my sincerest apologies. This episode is much better as it does not involve callers calling in to go the funk off. You get the picture. Enjoy!
Video is from the ACC Digital Network. Cards open up with Morehead State tonight at 6:00 p.m. ET. Game is on ESPN3 and of course 93.9 The Ville.
Per Brett McMurphy of ESPN, the time and TV for what may be the most anticipated Louisville game ever has been set.
This will be the first time the Cards have kicked off on CBS since 1997 and outside of the rivalry weekends, the first SEC non-conference game on CBS since Alabama vs FSU in 2007 per @MattSmithCFB.
Tickets for the game on September 5th are still available at GoCards.com.
As the 2015 Louisville Regional comes closer, Here is some information you will need to know.
Ample free parking will be available throughout the Louisville Regional at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium (PJCS), home of the UofL football team. Fans should park in the Bronze Lot, entering at lot D off Floyd Street on the south end of the stadium. (Click below for a lot more info)
ESPN.com’s Jared Shanker posted his top 10 ACC games that they (I assume the ACC bloggers with ESPN) are most looking forward to in 2015. Of the 10 games, the Louisville Cardinals are playing in two of those: the season opener against the Auburn Tigers and the home matchup against the Clemson Tigers. Needless to say, the early season could be exciting for the Cards. Here is what he had to say about those two games.
If you are a Louisville Basketball fan you have probably heard the name Maverick Rowan. It was widely rumored that Rowan would attempt to finish the last couple classes he needed and graduate this summer. Rowan ran into a problem when his current high school Cardinal Gibbons seemed to not be sure how they could make this work. Last we heard Rowan was looking for a school to make this happen and it appears he may have done just that. Rowan’s father told the following to the Post-Gazette:
“Nothing is definite yet. We just have to make a decision,” said Ron Rowan. “I found a place he can graduate from. He can take the two classes he needs.
“If he decides he wants to go to college [this fall], then that’s a decision that needs to be within the next 10 days, because he will have to start summer school right after school ends [at Cardinal Gibbons]. If he doesn’t go to college, then there is a little bit of time to make a decision.”
Rowan’s father made it clear that the family had 3 options: stay at Cardinal Gibbons, go back to his original high school Lincoln Park, or graduate early and attend college. If Rowan opts for the latter expect him to be in a Louisville uniform next season.
Bobby Petrino received some good news today when 2016 4 star QB Tylin Oden (TN) chose Louisville. Oden picked the Cards over Mississippi State and WVU.
The 6’5 Oden is rated the #7 duel threat QB according to Rivals.com and gives Petrino his 10th commitment for the 2016 class. Oden has incredible arm strength and a lot of upside under the direction of Bobby Petrino. Look for Oden to most likely redshirt in his freshman season but the potential for playing time is there.
Look for the Cards to continue the pursuit of Jawon Pass but there is no doubt the staff is happy and are expecting big things from Oden.
I expect to see each and every one of you guys out there for the games this weekend!

V.J. King is a 6’7 small forward in the class of 2016. He visited the Cards last weekend and by all accounts, it sounds like the visit went well and that UofL is in a great spot with him. He recently narrowed his choices down to five: Louisville, Kentucky, UConn, Arizona, and Virginia.
One reason that Louisville is in such a good spot with King is Kenny Johnson. Johnson once coached King’s current high school, Paul VI, and King plays for Johnson’s former AAU team, Team Takeover.
