ESPN.com’s Jared Shanker posted his top 10 ACC games that they (I assume the ACC bloggers with ESPN) are most looking forward to in 2015. Of the 10 games, the Louisville Cardinals are playing in two of those: the season opener against the Auburn Tigers and the home matchup against the Clemson Tigers. Needless to say, the early season could be exciting for the Cards. Here is what he had to say about those two games.

Remember Teddy’s first possession at UofL? If you don’t, it went like this against Murray State.

1st and 10 at LOU 46 LOUISVILLE penalty 5 yard False Start accepted.
1st and 15 at LOU 41 LOUISVILLE penalty 5 yard False Start on Hector Hernandez accepted.
1st and 20 at LOU 36 LOUISVILLE penalty 5 yard Delay of Game on Teddy Bridgewater accepted.
1st and 25 at LOU 31 Jeremy Wright rush for 3 yards to the Lvile 34.
2nd and 22 at LOU 34 Jeremy Wright rush for 5 yards to the Lvile 39.
3rd and 17 at LOU 39 Teddy Bridgewater pass intercepted by Darrell Davis at the MurrS 24, returned for no gain to the MurrS 24.

Then there is this incredible video. My how things have changed!

Time and TV Set for Louisville Football vs Houston and Clemson

Well we got ourselves a “nooner.” The word, although not recognized by this WordPress document due to the squiggly red line underneath, is definitely one that Louisville football fans can understand.

The first home game of the 2015 season for the Cards will be on September 12 against Houston. And yes, it will be a nooner on the ACC Regional Sports Network. I believe that usually means WAVE 3 or WHAS 11 locally.

ESPN’s College Football Too-Early Top 25: Louisville 25th; Auburn 4th

Is it ever too early to have a college football poll? Probably, but that’s OK. It gives us something to talk about with 4 months to go before Louisville and Auburn kickoff in the Georgia Dome on September 5.

In ESPN’s too-early top 25, Mark Schlabach has the Cards ranked 25th. He has this to say…

Cleveland Browns passed on DeVante because he isn’t tough enough?

Last year, the Cleveland Browns passed on Teddy Bridgewater. This year, they had the chance to draft DeVante Parker. They passed on him as well. While nearly all Louisville fans breathed a sigh of relief (I say nearly because I have family that are Browns fans…sorry!), apparently the Parker family was also relieved.

Petrino + Strong = 10 NFL Draft Picks

FootballvsMiamiPetrinoClint Hurtt, Charlie Strong

Petrino photo: Tim Haag/CardinalSportsZone.com Strong photo: livestream7.com

The Louisville Cardinals had a school record 10 players selected in this past weekend’s NFL Draft. They had the second most of any team, behind Florida State’s 11 picks. Regardless, that looks great for the program. But who do you think should get the most credit? The guy who coached them last season? Or the guy who brought most of those guys to UofL and developed them?

Just for the record, when I refer to Bobby Petrino or Charlie Strong in this, it obviously includes their whole staff as well. Clearly guys like Todd Grantham and Clint Hurtt have a lot to do with the success of those head coaches, but for the sake of time, I will just refer to Petrino and Strong.

Let’s take a look at the 10 draft picks and try to figure out who is most responsible for them getting drafted…

Football Notebook: Recapping the NFL Draft for UofL

Photo: Tim Haag/CardinalSportsZone.com

Photo: Tim Haag/CardinalSportsZone.com

It was a very eventful weekend for the city of Louisville as well as the University of Louisville football program. If you are like me, you were focused on the Derby festivities, but kept an eye on the NFL Draft at least. The Kentucky Derby is what this city is known for, and I was lucky enough to have tickets, so of course that was where my attention was. But I also get mobile alerts, and somehow my phone was working at Churchill Downs, so I was aware when former Louisville players were getting drafted, which was a plus.

In all, a school record 10 players from UofL were drafted. Florida State had the most players with 11. On top of those 10 for the Cards, four (so far) have also signed free agent deals and will have a chance to make a team.

Here is just a quick rundown of where the players were selected.

Lorenzo Mauldin Gets Emotional on Conference Call After Being Drafted

By now, you are probably familiar with the story of Lorenzo Mauldin. How he was passed around from foster home to foster home as a child as both of his parents were in jail. With everything stacked against him and plenty of excuses to not succeed in life, the fact that Lorenzo was drafted to the NFL on Friday night makes his story so much more incredible.

And if you aren’t familiar with his story, here are a couple of links from ESPN’s Andrea Adelson to help you understand.

Jamon Brown, John Miller, Lorenzo Mauldin all Drafted in 3rd Round

Photo: Tim Haag/CardinalSportsZone.com

On Friday night, there was a moment where it seemed like Louisville football was stealing the show at the NFL Draft. Three Cardinals were selected within 11 picks of each other.

It started with offensive tackle Jamon Brown being picked at number 72 by the St. Louis Rams. Brown is a local kid that attended Fern Creek High School, meaning that the first two picks from UofL (Brown and DeVante Parker) were from the city of Louisville. Brown was a second team All-ACC player in 2014 who started in 40 games for the Cards in his career. He came in as a defensive tackle and switched to the offensive line after four games of his freshman season.

Reaction on DeVante Parker from the Miami area

DeVante Parker was selected 14th overall by the Miami Dolphins on Thursday night. It certainly sounds like Louisville fans are generally happy for that spot with Parker. If it couldn’t be the Vikings, at least it wasn’t the Browns. That is the feeling I got from social media, and rightfully so.

We already know about DeVante and how good he is. I decided to check in on a couple of media outlets from down in Florida to see what they thought of him. Most of it is quotes from Dolphins management, but also some opinion thrown in there.

DeVante Parker has been selected by the Miami Dolphins with the 14th overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.

Despite missing the first 7 games of his senior year, Parker finished his career at UofL with 33 touchdowns, tied for 1st all-time with Ibn Green. He finished 4th all-time with 2,775 receiving yards and 156 receptions, which is 8th all-time. For more of his stats in the UofL record books, check out this post.
