Here we are approaching week six of the NCAA Football season and the Cards have moved just two spots despite 4 teams ahead of us falling (LSU, South Carolina, Georgia and Texas A&M). As a fan, it is discerning to feel like no matter what we do that it seems like we are just running in place. Got me thinking though, what exactly needs to happen for us to make the BCS Title game in Pasadena? I started looking at the schedules of the teams above and the ones who may jump us. Here is the blueprint to our title hopes.
Senior Charlyn Corral scored two goals and dished out one assist in the Cardinals 4-1 win over Rutgers Sunday. The Cardinals improve to 2-0-0 in American Athletic Conference play and 6-3-1 overall while Rutgers falls to 1-1-0 in league play and 8-2-1 overall. Louisville will be back in action on Thursday, Oct. 3 as they travel to SMU for an 8:00 p.m. match.
The Cards dropped the first set Sunday vs Temple then never looked back as they defeated the Owls 3-1 at the YUM! Center Sunday afternoon. McClendon led the way for Louisville with 15 kills and 11 digs as the Cards moved to 2-0 in the American Conference and bringing them to 6-6 overall following a four game winning streak. Freshman Janelle Jenkins had nine kills and 10 blocks and Libero Caitlin Welch had a match-high 20 digs. Emily Juhl joined McClendon in double figure kills with 12 adding two blocks with senior Randi Ewing notching a season-high, career-high 10 blocks. The Cards play their first AAC road game Friday @ SMU followed by Houston on Sunday. Coach Anne Kordes had these words about the road trip. “Those Texas schools are really good and we will have to play well and adjust quickly because we have a target on our backs since we were picked to win the league. We have to cut back on our unforced errors,”

The Cards may be on the bye week, but there are still things to be excited about on this Saturday, and one of those is the future of Cardinal football! This post is all about seeing how a few 2014 UofL commits did in their games on Friday night. These guys put up some big numbers! And another important stat: all of their teams won! It is a big thing if you can recruit kids that are used to winning.
@UofLVolleyball starts of their inaugural season in the AAC this weekend with games with Memphis and Temple on tap Friday and Sunday at the KFC Yum! Center. The Memphis Tigers are one of the Volleyball teams oldest rivals. It is sure to be a phenomenal environment this weekend. CardNation come show your support!

Every night on SportsCenter, the top 10 plays from around the country are played. Every day America submits what they think should be the ten best plays in America. Being #1 is something CardNation is getting use to and on this night it wouldn’t be any different. L.J. Scott, a 5-10 224 pound RB out of Marion Harding High School in Marion, Ohio leaped over a defender and rumbled to the end zone for what appeared to be a 50 yard TD. Scott, a Louisville commit, was flagged for the play because hurdling is illegal in High School football in Ohio. I asked LJ what it meant to him being on SportsCenter Top 10. ” It meant more to me that kids who look up to me were happy more than my own happiness if that makes sense. Marion is a great town but unfortunately its been out shadowed by negative light lately. It was a team effort though, but I’m just more excited kids who look up to me know that great things are possible with God and hard work!!” said LJ. When I asked his thoughts about everyone who helped to get the video on he said “to everyone who helped it go viral I can’t thank them enough… to the city of Marion, to Cardnation!! I cant explain the appreciation of everything! I cant wait to be a cardinal but im not in a hurry to leave my beloved Marion!!!
This kid is a special kid and that’s become the standard of what Coach Strong recruits. A very humble and Outstanding young man. CardNation we are lucky. I told him we will hopefully see him make more Top 10′s as a Card. Below is the clip, Enjoy!
