The Cardinals have received a lot of criticism for their ‘weak schedule’ for the 2013 season following an obvious dominance of the Florida Gators in the Allstate Sugar Bowl. No, it is no SEC schedule where we will be playing top 25 teams every week, however, the Cards will have their work cut out for them this upcoming season. I believe this year’s schedule is much tougher than our last in the Big East. No offense BBN, but Kentucky lowered the SOS for the Cardinals last year along with teams like Missouri State and Connecticut (which was a 3OT loss). After it was all said and done, Teddy Bridgewater finished the season with a 68% completion percentage, a 4% increase from the previous season and lowered his interceptions from 12 to 8. He also completed 62% of his passes against who Yahoo Sports considers the 3rd best defense of the 2012 season, only behind the two teams who played for the national championship.
Here’s what the members of CardinalSportsZone.com think Teddy will do Sunday against his opponents: The Ohio Bobcats
Justin: 38-17 U of L, I will say that he goes for 260 yards and 3 touchdowns with 0 interceptions.
Steve: 42-10 U of L Teddy will go for 325 yards passing and 3TD
Jeremy: 48-17 U of L Teddy will go for 290 and 4 TD
Daryl: 35-10 UL, Teddy will go for 275 yards, 3 TD, 1 INT
Paige: UL BY 14, Teddy for 220 and 2 TD, 1 INT
This week is the week we all have been waiting for……College Football. The feeling in the air, the sound of the big hits and the adrenaline rush from big plays are all things I have been anticipating since I left New Orleans. This week I sat down and thought to myself, do people want to see the same stories on all the blogs or do they want to see something different, their story? I started to email, text and DM some of the most knowledgeable members of CardNation I know. One by one they answered back and it made for some really good stories. Today I thought I would try something different for the series but yet the same really. People forget at times that some of the biggest fans of the University of Louisville are us, the members of CSZ. So to cap off the series we will bring you the thoughts Justin ( @JRVille25 ), Steve ( @Stiz_CSZ ), Paige ( @PaigeS_502 ), Daryl ( @Darylfoust4 ) and myself ( @Jeremy_CSZ ). We hope you have enjoyed this series as much as we have.
Thanks CardNation & Enjoy!
It was officially announced today that Louisville will face Auburn in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game for the 2015 season. The game will be on Saturday September 5 at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, Georgia. Tickets for the game will be split evenly between the two schools.
Charlie Strong will have an impressive list of visitors from this class all the way to 2015 on campus this weekend:
Tomorrow night at 8 p.m. the #10 Men’s Soccer team will head to Virginia to battle future ACC foe, the #20 Virginia Cavaliers. This will be broadcast live on CardsTV at GoCards.com. More details are in the press release. Enjoy!
Today the University of Louisville released the 2013-14 Women’s Basketball schedule……Florida State, WKU and UK make up the tough Non-Conference schedule and UCONN twice makes up the tough Conference games. It is my opinion that the WBB program was hit hardest by conference realignment as it will no longer play top 25 teams every week. The AAC Women’s tournament will be played at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville, Connecticut Click below for more details and the full season schedule.
When the Ohio Bobcats come into Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium on Sunday, they will certainly bring experience at the skill positions. They also likely will not bring nervousness with them, as they opened last season on the road at Penn State and won 24-14. This is an experienced team that went 9-4 last season (started 7-0) and beat Louisiana-Monroe in the Independence Bowl. They return their quarterback, top running back who rushed for over 1,600 yards (WOW), and top wide receiver. Let’s take a look at those guys.
So this week we have been doing a series called CardNation Speaks. I wanted to do a game week story about what you all were feeling about Sunday and what was your favorite gameday rituals or things to do. I have been telling you guys that one thing that I pride myself in is staying completely interactive with CardNation. I follow everyone back on Twitter, answer every question, and talk to everyone no matter what time of the day I get hit with a random DM on twitter. I feel like that’s important, and a part of what sets us apart from a majority of the other sites out there. I wanted to do a game week story about what you all were feeling about Sunday and what was your favorite gameday rituals or things to do. I DM’d several people that I converse with the most and asked for their input. I hope you guys enjoy reading what everyone thought. I will be releasing these every day this week so email me at @JSWahman723@aol.com if you want to be a part of it. Todays participants include:
@kevinwatson73 @OutkastCard @TWILL322 @ray_calhoun @MooreOfKaitlyn & @WolfBitCardinal
Thanks CardNation & Enjoy
