Get Excited: “The Show in the State” comes to PJCS this Saturday

Kentucky football

If you are a Louisville football season ticket holder, the time you are waiting for all season has come. You had to suffer through bad home games like Miami and Florida State, but it was all worth it. Getting wins over ACC opponents like NC State and Wake Forest were just to pass the time. Any game you went to, it was just an event to hold us all over. It was all leading to this week. You know, when “the show in town, in the state” finally visits Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium. Oh yes folks, we are blessed that Kentucky football is coming to put the show on display in front of our very eyes.

Don’t know what I am referring to? Back in April of this year, UK Offensive Coordinator Neal Brown had this to say after mentioning that there were no pro teams in the area. “The other team doesn’t want to hear that, but it’s it. We’re the show in town, in the state.” Good to know.

Let’s take a look at how the state (Commonwealth) of Kentucky has been represented by “The Show” this season. They are our leaders, so for the sake of all of us, surely it has gone well…

As we enter the final week of the regular season, here is where DeVante Parker ranks in some of the receiving categories in UofL history. We are only left to wonder “what if” when it comes to these records and Parker, as he missed the first 7 games this season with his foot injury.

Career Receptions

1. 299   Arnold Jackson, 1997-00

2. 217   Ibn Green, 1996-99

NCAA Will Let Shaqquan Aaron Know His Status Next Week

According to this tweet, the NCAA will let Louisville know about the status of freshman Shaqquan Aaron sometime next week. This is an issue about the NCAA clearing him to play that shouldn’t have taken much time at all, but keeps dragging on and has kept Aaron out of 3 games so far.

This news means that Aaron will miss at least 2 more games, as the Cards host Savannah State on Monday and Cleveland State on Wednesday.

All Hail Notre Dame….

Where do I start? This is going to be one of the hardest posts I’ve ever had to write. Not because it’s difficult…but because there is so darn much to include. I am going to give it a shot. I will be including a full gallery of my own later today or tomorrow but here is my journey through what was one of the most special and unique days of my life. Here is Notre Dame.

 

We got up about 7 a.m. (not by choice, thanks snoring Chris) and got some breakfast and started our trek to the holy grail of College Football. If you have never been to a game at Notre Dame, be sure you get there the next time we play there. Magnificent. Immediately myself, Steve, Chris and Joey were in awe at the sights and sounds of South Bend. “Welcome to Notre Dame” began to be a song lyric that just is repeated over and over and over again. “Have fun but not once the game starts” quipped one of the security guards. We spent about 20 minutes exchanging stories and pleasantries once we got to the gates at 10 a.m. We ran into their mascot who insisted we take a picture.

We  then went to check out the beautiful Basilica of the Sacred Heart on campus.

Orange Bowl Still Possible for Louisville

Harry Douglas Orange Bowl

It will take winning and some outside help, but the Louisville Cardinals still have a chance to play in the Orange Bowl this season, which is the BCS Bowl that the ACC is tied to. The only poll that matters now is the College Football Playoff Ranking, so that is the one I will refer to. Louisville enters this week ranked 24th.

Now let’s be clear. When talking about the teams that have a shot at the Orange Bowl from the ACC, they would need Florida State to make it into the Playoff, which would open up the Orange Bowl spot for the next best ACC team. Remember, “next best ACC team” just means the highest ranked ACC team. Head to head means nothing, perception of teams means nothing. It is all about who is ranked highest.

If you haven’t seen it yet, here is the full Rick Pitino interview with Seth Davis. It is broken down into 9 different videos. I couldn’t embed the full video from Campus Insiders because, you know, technology and stuff. So I had to use their separate clips from YouTube. The benefit here is that if you don’t have time to watch it all, you can just watch a couple clips at a time. Sound like a plan? Good deal, go!

Notre Dame’s Brian Kelly Previews Louisville

Video of Brian Kelly’s press conference along with the full transcript. He mainly talks about his team, as is the situation with most of these press conferences where they “preview” the opponent. But he mentions some Louisville. Either way, you can learn about the Fighting Irish.

COACH KELLY: We’ll have to find ways to move the ball against an extremely athletic Louisville defense. Mauldin, Burgess, inside very physical fronts. I think there’s probably four or five guys there as good of guys as we’ve gone against. And it looks like they’ve going to get some guys back, too. It will be a great challenge.
I think really it’s about how we play. I think it’s pretty obvious that we’ve got to make some plays defensively. Slow some people down. And take care of the football. Those are the two things. And then our kicking game has got to get back to where it was. I still think we’ve got one of the best kickers in the country, he had an off day on Saturday. But I expect him to bounce back, and if we get those three areas cleaned up, we could beat anybody. So I know that’s the way our kids feel. That’s the way I feel. And we get a chance to do that again on Senior Day. Which is important. Important milestone for three of our seniors, in particular, because they’re the three guys that came in with me five years ago, and we certainly want to send them out as winners. So, with that I’ll answer questions.

The Wooden Award is presented annually to the most outstanding college basketball Player of the Year. The award was founded in 1976. A watch list with 50 players was recently released, and Louisville’s Montrezl Harrell and Terry Rozier made the list. These aren’t finalists, as someone who is not on this list can certainly win the award. It is just a watch list.

The list will be reduced to 25 players in January, and finalists will be announced in March.

According to multiple sources Rick Pitino and Asst. Coach Kenny Johnson are watching 2015 4 star PG Traci Carter today. Pitino mentioned in his pre game press conference on Monday that the Cards would still like to add one more guard in the 2015 class. While all signs point to the Cards looking to land a “5th year transfer” Carter’s name also has risen to the forefront. Steve Jones of the Courier Journal spoke with Carter’s mentor Donnie Carr about the possibility of the 4 star guard landing at Louisville

Tailgating at Notre Dame: Limited Fun Allowed

NCAA Football: Michigan State at Notre Dame

If you are planning to make the trip to South Bend for the Louisville-Notre Dame football game this weekend, you may want to read the guidelines on tailgating up there first. No charcoal grills, tents with walls, or loud speakers. The biggest problem for UofL fans? Tailgating is NOT allowed after kickoff. Surely this wouldn’t be a problem at a road game, but you never know!

Here are the rules for tailgating straight from Notre Dame’s website:
