BirdGang Clothing To Be Sold At Cardinal Authentic!

As a teammate and friend of mine, I am extremely excited that Dan Mosby (CFO) has continued to achieve. He will now be able to sell his companies clothing ,BirdGang , at Cardinal Authentic. We really did start from the bottom…no Drake. Here is the write-up from todays Louisville Business First.

(From Louisville Business First)

Geared toward adherents of the “Louisville First, Cards Forever” mantra, a local clothing startup is all about the University of Louisville.

And it wants to be the first choice for Cards fan apparel.

Birdgang Brand LLC, founded in 2013, is an official licensed retailer for U of L apparel. It was formed after Kentucky hip hop group Nappy Roots worked with U of L to produce the song “L1c4.

Most recently, the company has secured a deal to sell its clothing at the KFC Yum! Center, Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium and Jim Patterson Stadium, said Danny Mosby, CFO and a partner in Birdgang.

This week on 55…..

We are going to do things a little different. I have a little experiment I am partaking in tonight in the realm of podcasting. If it goes well then you will be seeing myself and the fine people of CSZ in the world of podcasting sooner than later. That is exciting for us as we always look to evolve as a site and expand into new things. I will show you a tweet later of someone else who needs to evolve. So needless to say I am going to give you a quicker wrap-up than normal so I can take care of business. Without further adieu, here are the most ridiculous, outlandish, interesting or just downright obnoxious things I have heard this week. THIS is 55…..

This tweet to me earlier was so bad it was great.

(warning: moronic content may appear)

 

Umm….I just don’t know what to say. According to you, only people with half of a brain hate Louisville? Gotcha.

 

I really never have to even defend myself. Thanks Lisa!

Matt Colburn: Hate It, But It Happened

FootballvsFSUPetrino

One of the guys I most looking forward to coming to UL this year to play Football was Matt Colburn. Mr. Football in South Carolina, great athlete and better kid. So what happened? We pulled his scholarship 2 days before signing day. That sucks. But guess what, it happens. Kids flip on schools on signing day and schools change their minds on signing day when more people commit than they thought. USC accepted Lozo’s commit then cut him after they realized they had too many guys….or something like that. Remember Daniel Gresham, Ace Wales, Marquez Valdez? All committed and none of their commitments were honored here and that’s just a few examples.

Card Talk

Villanova v Louisville

-The above is a sight that few of us love to see. It’s the White-Out suit. It’s not pretty but it works sometimes. OK, more often it doesn’t. Tomorrow is our annual White-Out game vs #13 UNC at 4pm. If you are going, represent:

You can pick that up from any of the Cardinal Authentic locations.

 

-Jeff Walz recorded his 200th victory at the University of Louisville last night defeating top 25 Syracuse 78-58 last night. Congrats Coach!

 

-Don’t Forget to tune into 93.9 FM for all things UofL. John Ramsey has a show on from 3-6p

 

-Congrats out to Pedro Sibea:

 

-Last, but certainly not least. One of my mentors and a person who did a lot to give CSZ credibility is leaving the University Of Louisville. Nick Stover (@ULFlyingCard) was named CMO of BodyShapes Medical. He came on any show we were doing, helped us out in any way and never acted like we were to young of a site to lend his knowledge and help to. When we traveled to different cities for events, he would link up with us and give us tips. Thank You for everything. Good Luck in your future endeavors and Go Cards!

Terry Rozier Ain’t Walking Through That Door Next Year….

Terry Rozier
Any avid Basketball fan that truly understands talent and what basketball is all about seen this coming. Me and Steve had come into the year saying…well, we loze Wayne,Trezl and Terry. Coach Pitino has alluded to that throughout the season and today he flat out said it.

http://www.courier-journal.com/videos/sports/college/basketball/louisville/2015/01/30/22599687/

Seems like coach reaffirmed what most of us already knew. 1) Terry is gone 2) nobody reads Mock Drafts

Go Cards!

Teddy Bridgewater: Pepsi Rookie Of The Year

Today it was announced that Louisville’s own Teddy Bridgewater was named the Pepsi Rookie Of The Year. This award is given out by the fans and the fans apparently feel like Teddy is not the little hand, skinny knees, bad pro day having QB that some “experts” did…cough cough Mayock. Teddy did have an incredible rookie year. He beat out Jeremy Hill, Odell Beckham Jr, Sammy Watkins and Mike Evans for the award. He played in 13 games throwing 259-402 for a 64.4% completion rate. He threw for 2,919 yards, 14 TD and 12 INT’s. He also had 209 yards rushing and 1 rushing TD. Here’s some words from fellow rookies and former Cards:

 

Great job Teddy! All of us here in CardNation are very proud!

Go Cards!

 

Happy Birthday Cards!

Here are some updates from around CardNation:

Grantham

-DC Todd Grantham WILL stay at the University of Louisville. He turned down the Raiders DC job today. This is good news for CardNation just days away from signing day.

sheldrick

 

-After a roller coaster last 24 hours, Sheldrick Redwine has reaffirmed his commitment to the University of Louisville. It was reported that he decommitted last night and committed to Auburn. Justin shares more here.

McDeeze

-The 2015 Boys McDonald’s All-American team was announced tonight. In a move that surely infuriated a lot of people, 0 of the Cards commits were selected as game participants. Despite being ranked higher than some selected, Donovan Mitchell, Deng Adel and Ray Spaulding were left off of the list. Two 4 stars were selected and all 3 of our guys are 5 stars. I will now boycott McDonald’s.

-The 2015 Girls All-American team was also announced tonight. A record 3 Cards were selected. Asia Durr, Taja Cole and Sam Fuehring were all selected. OK, I may have an apple pie now and then….
