Video Of Top Ranked Asia Durr’s Commitment To Louisville

ulwbb

Here is the video of Asia’s commitment to the University of Louisville for those of us that did not get to watch it live. It does take a minute or so to load so be patient. Today was a historical day for Jeff Walz and U of L women’s basketball. Asia’s commitment gives us the #1 ranked recruiting class in 2015 for the moment. We have more targets out there that could solidify the #1 ranking. Enjoy!

55 (Season 2 Episode 2)

55

 

This week on 55……….

We talk commitments……HUGE commitments. How the Cards are doing under Bobby P. Red-White scrimmage tickets go on sale. Hot dogs, Nelson, Intrastate rivals and more. Is there one more big commitment in the CARDS for UofL this week? I say L yeah! So strap in, here are the 55 most ridiculous things I have heard, had to debate, or just thought about this past week. This …..is……55.

 

1) ACC ACC ACC ACC ACC ACC ACC ACC ACC ACC ACC………..I’m really not sure if I said it enough times but ACC ACC ACC ACC ACC ACC. My bad, I know that was the same #1 as it was last week but so much more respect nationally just due to the conference switch. Much more fun league to be a part of as well. Got the following tweet right after the game….

3) Last year we would have “slipped by” or “escaped” This year we shut down a top ACC team. So proud of this team…..

 

4) Read my experience from my first ACC game here

ESPN Ranks Nations Top Basketball/Football Tandems

Rick Pitino 2 Bobby Petrino

ESPN released a list of their top Basketball/Football tandems in college sports. Being an all-around athletics program is something we take a lot of pride in at the University of Louisville. Basketball team are coming off of a National Championship a few years ago and the football team coming off of multiple bowl victories. I think we are ranked a few spots too low but am happy overall with the perception just a few days into the Petrino era. Louisville was ranked the 5th best program for the 2 sports. Check out the full list below!

Bowl Projections (Week 1)

FootballvsMiamiParker

It is early in the season but apparently not too early to talk Bowl projections. Where the Cards end up may have a lot to do with how quick and well this young man above this heals. With him a position in the playoff is possible with an undefeated season, without him a BCS bowl is still attainable. Either would be great finishes. One thing that is for sure is that a few sites have come out with their projections, here they are.

ESPN:

College Football Playoff: Florida State
Orange Bowl : Louisville
Russell Athletic Bowl: Virginia Tech
Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl: Clemson
Belk Bowl: North Carolina
Hyundai Sun Bowl: Pitt
New Era Pinstripe Bowl: Notre Dame
Military Bowl presented By Northrop Grumman: Duke
Duck Commander Independence Bowl: Miami
Quick Lane Bowl: Boston College
BITCOIN St. Petersburg Bowl: Georgia Tech

55 (Season 2 Episode 1)

55

 

It is finally that time of year! No silly, not football season, it is time for my weekly episodic series I affectionately name 55. First off I want to send a HUGE Shoutout to Tim Haag and Birds Nest Graphics for designing the new and permanent logo for 55. You can follow Tim at @UofLBirdsNest. I decided a permanent logo would help establish a familiar brand. If you guys find the number 55 in weird places still feel free to send them to me as they will still be included somehow. Without further adieu…..

This week on 55……….

We talk the promised land, We catch you up on a ton of things that have happened since I’ve been gone. (Please no Kelly Clarkson jokes) and a lot of other things that may or may not be of importance to you. I will bank on the fact they WILL. No pun intended. We will go over tonight’s huge Blackout. (The one on the field) So here we go, here are the 55 most ridiculous things I have heard, had to debate, or just thought about this past week. This …..is……55.

Black Out! (Dress Accordingly)

Monday marks a yearly occasion for us Louisville fans, a color coordinated event. Actually sometimes with Basketball included, we get to do it several times a year. Red-Outs, White-Outs…Black-Outs, It doesn’t which one it is, we don’t all comply. Not enough notice, don’t have anything that color for the weather that day…etc. etc. The reasons roll on. Well have no fear. I bring you viable options for Monday’s Black-out vs the University of Miami at PJCS and I would like to share them with you so we can get close to UL/WVU football (The most successful IMO) standards as far as uniformity is considered. I ran across these the other day at Cardinal Authentic (@CardsAuthentic)

Just when you thought the WNBA couldn’t lose any more credibility they released the 2014 All-Rookie Team today:

2014 WNBA ALL-ROOKIE TEAM

Player Team Position Votes
Chiney Ogwumike Connecticut Sun Forward 11
Odyssey Sims Tulsa Shock Guard 11
Kayla McBride San Antonio Stars Guard/Forward 11
Bria Hartley Washington Mystics Guard 9
Alyssa Thomas Connecticut Sun Forward 7

Yep, there is one glaring omission….Showtime Shoni Schimmel. (say that 3 times real fast) She set the WNBA on fire this season with her razzle dazzle passes and clutch shooting. I believe she will be on the first team all WNBA in no time if she improves and keeps up the good work. We were extremely proud of you this year Shoni! Go Cards!

Well guys, we aren’t in Kansas anymore. Oh that’s right…we were in Houston, Central Florida and Philly. Sorry guys. With a greater league comes greater interaction. The ACC has impressed me with two of their releases so far (2-2) in @TheACCDN and The ACC Football Challenge App. It’s available on all platforms for just .99 and it allows interactions in game form that could lead you to a trip to the 2014 ACC title game. You can even play as the newly joined Louisville Cardinals and kick your way to Charlotte. Sounds cool to me. The ACC Digital Network is also available on all platforms and takes you behind the scenes of your favorite team in the ACC and lets you watch past games and other fun stuff. Below is the Press Release and the link for the App!

Fly-By Of The New Soccer Stadium Via @ULFlyingCard

Our guy Nick Stover is at it again. Using the latest technology he can find, he brings us a fly-by (yes you read that correctly) of the brand new Dr. Mark and Cindy Lynn Soccer Stadium using views from Google Glass and aerial drones. Hope you enjoy!

We hope to see everyone there for the University of Louisville women’s soccer home opener against Ole Miss on Aug. 29 at 5:30 p.m followed at 8pm by the men’s match against Maryland. The matches are the first events in the opening of Dr. Mark and Cindy Lynn Stadium.

ESPN Contributor Makes FEARLESS Predictions

David Hale of ESPN.com was asked to make some fearless predictions this week. He came up with his top 10 for the ACC. To many outside of Louisville, Will Gardner will be a shock and an absolute treat to watch. His full story can be seen here. Here’s my fearless prediction for Will, 3500 yards passing. It would put him in 6th place all-time for a single season right behind my old teammate Chris Redman’s Sr campaign of 3,647. That’s about as fearless as I can get this season. It also may be due to the fact we are so close to football I can taste it and am being really generous. On that note Dom Brown will rush for 2000 yards and Lozo will have 21 sacks. OK…I have calmed down a little but I will stick with my Gardner prediction. Gardner will be magnificent this year. I Can’t wait to utter the words…The Gardner did it!

Taquan Dean: Hungry And Driven

taquanotis

Here we are for the final installment of Hungry and Driven….for now. First things first. (Don’t Iggy me) Most of you know I have a column I do during peak sports season called 55. That column will be making its debut right before the UL/Miami football game Monday night September 1st. No set time as of now but starting the next week it will be back to its usual time, 7:55. We will be more interactive, more fun and bring you more info than ever. Also plan on having a few guest writers of 55 during the season. Stay tuned. Also here is a sneak peek at the brand new logo for 55 designed by CSZ’s good friend Tim of @UofLBirdsNest. If you aren’t following him on Twitter, do so now. He is awesome.

Went on vacation last week so I did not get to post but rest assured…I have more Taquan Dean. This past week was his birthday. As CardNation showered him with happy birthdays and well wished, Taquan showed off his birthday gift to himself.

So very proud of this guy who I’m lucky enough to call my friend. Back to business though.

Taquan Dean: Hungry And Driven

taquandean1

 

In this weekly series we are going to let you watch one of the all time Louisville greats, Taquan Dean, doing what he loves to do, play basketball. Over the next 3 weeks I will release footage of former UofL Basketball Graduate Assistant Tim Gray putting Taquan through different workout movements to help evolve and sharpen his craft. In these videos you will see just how special Taquan is and how you may want to train if Basketball is your dream. His hard work, hustle and determination really shines through on the court. This week we will show you 2 more videos. In the first you will see Taquan go unconscious from 3. How many do you think he hits in a row? Make a guess and then see how far off you are. in the second video Taquan shows off his dribbling skills. Enjoy!

Never Graduate

espnu

 

Before I get to the point of the story, I want to just lay some things out. I am a calm and collective guy. Even at CSZ we rarely get into the name calling game, with the exception of the loose cannon Daryl Foust. I myself never get into the UL/uk wars because of family I have who support uk and anything I said would pertain to them. They are just as calm and non-confronting people as I am. They are rare. I also have been lucky enough to find friends that don’t fit the typical stereotype of the Kentucky fanatic. We are good to each other. My Uncle Jerry called me before the title game a few years back and said don’t worry, you got this. He is as blue as they come. So to all the people I love who are kentucky fans the following story will seem un-Jeremy like. I apologize. Read the rest of this entry
