Wow! What a fun season of sports that was, right? If you are the casual UofL fan and you mainly keep up with football and men’s basketball, you got to enjoy a Sugar Bowl and a National Championship. If you follow ALL teams at UofL, it seemed like everyday there was something to cheer about. Volleyball in the NCAA Tournament, a National Champion swimmer, men’s soccer making an NCAA Tournament run to the Elite 8, and so much more. Here is a little recap of how each team at UofL finished this season. To say the least, it is quite impressive! Go Cards!

I’m not sure if there has ever been a conversation that oozed CardSwag more than the one you are about to read! CardNation I give you 2014 WR Commits DeSean Blair and George Rushing:
You guys remember my guy 4* DE from Miami Chad Thomas right? Well if not take a moment to read the entry from a couple days ago here:
After posting this Thomas told us here a CSZ “I like the picture y’all got of me!!” Well Chad if you like that you will love this. Chad continues to post some pictures showing off his #CardSwag but there was something about these two pictures I couldn’t help but notice.
To this point Rick Pitino is putting together what looks to be a blockbuster 2014 recruiting class. In the past 4 seasons we have seen Pitino change a lot in the Louisville program and now that looks to be bleeding over into recruiting. At the University of Louisville we have had many great players but majority East Coast guys with a sprinkle of the rest of the Nation here and there , but not in 2014. There is already a national flavor with Quentin Snider (KY) and Shaqquan Aaron (WA) already in the mix but now Pitino seems to be turning his attention to another area….Texas. Pitino seems to be looking to sign at least 3-4 more in this class and 3 of his top targets, Kelly Oubre, Myles Turner, Elbert Robinson all hail from the great state of Texas. Texas is a pipeline that we have not had much success in in recent years but snagging 2 of these 3 could be HUGE for 2 reasons, One: they are 3 of the best players at the High School level and Two: this could potentially open up another hot bed of recruiting for Pitino. Over the past few years Texas has produced many great players and it looks like its time for the University of Louisville to make its mark there. Below are some highlights of Oubre, Turner, Robinson.
Chad Thomas of Miami’s Booker T Washington High School may not be a name you have heard a lot of yet but he sure knows who Louisville is. Thomas who is an Elite DE that ranks as high as the number 11 DE in the nation has offers from MANY schools such as Louisville, FSU, LSU, Miami, Miss St, Ole Miss, Tennessee, Texas A&M and others. But it sure looks as though he favors a certain shade of red:
This year’s NBA Draft is Thursday June 27! Here is a look at some of the mock drafts! Some of the sites did not have a 2nd round of picks, so that is hopefully why you don’t see Peyton Siva on all of them. I have said it before, I believe he has worked his way into the 2nd round of this year’s draft!
UofL’s own, Adam Hadwin is currently tied for 148 in the 113th U.S Open Championship.
Inclement weather yesterday lead to two delays in the first round of the U.S Open. Louisville’s Adam Hadwin’s tee time was delayed to 6:01pm, forcing him, along with many others, to finish the first round early this morning.
Hadwin got in five holes before officials called golfers in due to darkness at 8:15pm.
Through the first five, Hadwin was even par. He started out this morning making par on six before three straight bogeys to finish out the front nine, scoring 39, +3, on the front nine.
Hadwin started the back nine out with a bogey on 10 followed by two birdies on 11 and 12. The round went downhill from there. Hadwin bogeyed 13, 14 and 15, putting him at +7. On 16, Adam had a double bogey followed by two more bogeys on 17 and 18.
A rough start for Adam Hadwin in the first round. He shot 81 in the first round, +11.
As of right now, the projected cut going into the weekend is +4.
With the greens playing fast, Hadwin needs to take advantage of every shot today to avoid being cut before the weekend.
Adam Hadwin tees off in the second round at 12:01pm. Coverage is live on ESPN.
