55 (Season 2 Episode 20)

 

55

This week on 55…..

We are coming to the end of another season of 55. Don’t worry though, still 3-4 episodes left this season and I am confident it will be renewed for a third season. Seeing that I am the only one who could approve or cancel 55 I would have to be a dufus to deny the approval. (Shout out to Steve) Speaking of Steve. Did you tune into the brand new CardinalSportsZone podcast yesterday? We will talk about that too. The ACC Championships have wrapped up for some and are about to gear up for others. Where did the Cards start the week in the polls? Find out here.

Without further adieu, here are the most ridiculous, outlandish, interesting or just downright obnoxious things I have heard this week. THIS is 55…..

CSZ Podcast Info!

CSZ Profile Picture

 

FINALLY!! (The Rock Voice) Ok maybe not that extreme, but we are excited to announce that will we now venture into the realm of the podcast! The Cardinal Sports Zone Podcast will debut this Monday, March 2nd at noon.

Justin, Jeremy, and myself are all avid sports talk listeners and enjoy all the shows from 93.9 The Ville to the podcast put on by our friends over at The Crunch Zone. Quite frankly, we just want to throw our two cents in. We also see the serious need for something “Louisville” to listen to in the mid day hours. (I mean I know CardNation how much we all enjoy KSR……………..yea me neither). We hope to solve both of these problems with this podcast.

James Sample’s NFL Combine Results

James Sample was a very late addition to the roster for the University of Louisville in 2014. This was definitely a case of better late than never. Sample sure did his part to fill the void left by Calvin Pryor and Hakeem Smith in the defensive backfield. At the NFL Combine, Sample participated in 4 of the workouts. Here are his results, along with where his numbers rank among safeties. I will also post the leader for each category.

Gerod Holliman only participated in the bench press at the NFL Combine, where he got 17 reps. That ranked 6th among safeties. Nobody made more of a name for himself in such a short period of time for UofL than Gerod Holliman. In his only year of starting, Holliman tied the NCAA record for interceptions in a season with 14. Here are his measurements as well as his analysis from NFL.com.

One of the biggest talkers in recent memory of UofL football participated in the NFL Combine on Monday, and that is Charles Gaines. Gaines once said that he “runs with animals” and he certainly proved himself in the 40 yard dash. Here are his results from the tests he participated in. I will include how his numbers ranked among defensive backs and also post who came in first in each category.

NFL Combine Measurements and Analysis on B.J. Dubose

B.J. Dubose participated in two of the tests at the NFL Combine, and actually hurt himself during one of them. He pulled his hamstring while running the 40 yard dash. He was clocked at 5.06 seconds, but obviously that number is a little high because of his injury near the end of the run. He also benched pressed 225 lbs for 26 reps, which was good for 5th overall among linebackers.

Well this is exciting news. The University of Louisville has announced when spring football practice begins, and they also included a nice little detail that ALL of the spring practices are open to the public. I believe that was the case last year as well. It is just another example of how Bobby Petrino gives the fans what they want and gives them access to the team.
