Bobby Petrino was obviously pleased after Louisville came back from down 21-0 to beat Kentucky on Saturday afternoon. Here are his comments after the game. Video and transcript below…
Highlights of Louisville’s 38-24 victory over Kentucky in Commonwealth Stadium on Saturday.
Kentucky was supposed to challenge the Cards in 2006. Not so much. Cards win 59-28.
Pregame scuffle, Kyle Bolin, DeVante Parker. That is your summary for the 2014 game. Enjoy!
“They’ve got more Kentucky players out there than they have Louisville players.” Of course they do.
Seems kind of like a “Flashback Friday” type of video if you really pay attention to the players in it and the years that most are from. But hey, you do you Kentucky.
Louisville freshman Deng Adel has missed the last two games for the Cards, and according to Mike Rutherford of Card Chronicle (and then according to Pitino), he will miss two more weeks.
Garrick McGee and Tobijah Hughley (from Lexington) met with the media on Wednesday to talk about Saturday’s game against Kentucky.
Here are some interesting stats comparing UL and UK football from CFBStats.com. These stats are also filtered to get averages against POWER 5 teams only. This takes away Louisville’s game against Samford and Kentucky’s game against Charlotte. Stats in those games can be very misleading.
18 UL 325.2 ypg
50 UK 395.8 ypg
60 UL 381 ypg
75 UK 351 ypg
The common response when you tell a UK fan about these stats and how we are better is something about SOS or asking who we have played. Well……
Bloggin’ Rick Pitino is back on the inter-webs to give his thoughts on the 85-41 victory over St. Francis. With a score like that, you would think that all is well in the mind of Coach Pitino. Also, if you think that, you probably aren’t a coach. We are never satisfied!
In his latest blog, which you can read by clicking here, Pitino talks about some of the things he was not happy with. Don’t worry, he also talks about the positives and the upcoming game against Saint Louis. Here is some of the most recent blog from Coach…
Here is video of Ralph Willard, Damion Lee, Ray Spalding, and Donovan Mitchell after Louisville’s 85-41 win over St. Francis on Tuesday night.
Not too much of a rap, but whatever.
After Kentucky’s win over Charlotte on Saturday, the conversation naturally turned towards their next game against Louisville. The Courier-Journal’s Jon Hale was in the locker room and got some feedback from some of the Kentucky players with their thoughts on the rivalry with the Cards.
Here is your social media tip for the day if you are a college athlete: If you have a game at the end of November, posting about it in June may come back to bite you. Such is the case for Patrick Towles, who posted this gem back in June.
CSZ contributor Paige Sherrard also writes for SB Nation’s Swishappeal.com and she recently wrote about the UofL women’s basketball team upset loss at Western Kentucky. The Cards dropped to 0-2 on the season and Jeff Walz was not happy with his team’s performance. Here is an excerpt from Paige’s article for Swishappeal.
Head Coach Bobby Petrino and wide receiver Jamari Staples met with the media on Monday afternoon to talk about the disappointing loss to Pittsburgh and also preview this Saturday’s rivalry game against Kentucky.
In not-so-shocking news, class of 2016 4-star wide receiver Desmond Fitzpatrick decommitted from the Louisville Cardinals on Sunday evening. Sometimes, the writing is just on the wall in these kinds of situations. Now I am not going to sit here and say “If you didn’t see this coming, you are dumb and weren’t paying attention.” I will leave that kind of attitude for others. Informing you is what we are here for, and that is all I am doing.
Here is video and the transcript of Bobby Petrino’s comments after the 45-34 loss to Pittsburgh. The Cards are now 6-5 on the season and play at Kentucky (5-6) on Saturday.
