Tailgate with the Red Rage on Saturday

Red Rage

If you are heading to Atlanta this weekend for the Auburn game (IT’S SO CLOSE NOW!), you may be wondering where you should tailgate. Look no further, because you know you probably want to be apart of the Red Rage Tailgate. But maybe it isn’t for you. I mean it is basically a museum of Louisville Cardinals memorabilia, good music, good food, good drinks, a good time…and so on. If that isn’t for you, well then I apologize. Click below to view a map and see where the Red Rage will be setting up shop. Tailgate begins at 6 a.m. on Saturday!

Cardinal Sports Zone radio show: 8/29/15

93.9 The Ville

Well I knew it was going to be a packed show, and it was just that! Marques Maybin joined us in studio, which was a treat in itself. We talked about stadium expansion and got into an impromptu debate over which game is more important for the Cards…Auburn or Clemson? Also, the guys from Red Rage Tailgate joined us in studio. Needless to say, the studio and the show were packed, and it was a lot of fun!

Remember, next week the Cardinal Sports Zone will be broadcasting from 10-12 FROM ATLANTA on 93.9 The Ville! Click the soundcloud link below for today’s show.

First AP Poll Released; Cards Unranked

The Louisville Cardinals will begin the 2015 college football season unranked, and that is just fine by me. Gone are the days where we would look at the schedule and maybe see one ranked opponent that we just absolutely HAD to beat to have any good wins. Now in the ACC, and with a pretty big season opener, the Cards will have plenty of chances to make their way into the top 25.

If you count the teams in the “others receiving votes” section, Louisville technically finds themselves ranked at #32. Like I said, there are chances to beat ranked teams and move up. In the preseason poll, Louisville faces three ranked teams:

93.9 The Ville

On today’s show, we talked about who we would each WANT as the starting QB for Louisville this season. Not who we think it will be, but our preference. I give a terrible answer, but pick somebody in the end. Perrin Johnson joined us, which was a treat. We had our most callers we have had so far and had a great time. Click the soundcloud link below to give it a listed. As always, we are on 93.9 The Ville on Saturday mornings from 10-11 a.m.

93.9 The Ville

Things are really beginning to heat up in UofL sports and we squeeze all of it that we can into our 1-hour show on 93.9 The Ville! If you missed it today, you can click the soundcloud link below and check it out. We spent about half the time on basketball and half on football. What do these Puerto Rico games mean? Is Quentin Snider’s development slowed down by Trey Lewis/Damion Lee being here? And on the football side of things, we had Brandon Marcello on the show. Brandon is Auburn’s beat writer for AL.com and had some great insight into Auburn’s team and how he thinks the fans there are looking at Louisville. Check it out!

Duke Williams / Photo: al.com

About a week and a half ago, I was told that there was going to be some news coming out soon about Auburn’s best wide receiver, 6’2 senior Duke Williams. Now that it is starting to get out, I can go ahead and pass along what others are saying. Williams practiced the first three days of camp, but has not practiced since Thursday. He is facing “a discipline issue” according to head coach Gus Malzahn. If that is all that they will say about it, then so will I.

The Louisville Cardinals had one scholarship left over for the 2015 class when it was learned that running back James Allen would not qualify and make the grades to get here. It appears that the scholarship will be used by offensive tackle Toriano Roundtree, who stands at 6’8 and weighs anywhere from 295-300 lbs, depending on what site you look at.

I am about a day late getting to this, but it happens. Life happens. Anyways, if you missed it, Louisville football got another commitment for the 2016 class when Caleb Tillman made his pledge to the Cards. Tillman is a defensive lineman from Dothan, Alabama and is a former Mississippi State commit. Most sites list him as a defensive end, but one also has him as a defensive tackle. At his size of 6’3 and around 265 lbs, that is more likely suited for a defensive end.

We have survived the “slow” part of the year and got through June and July! And even then, I think our shows were pretty good. Now we are in August, and that one hour just flies by!

Oh, and I love our ending music of “Today was a good day” by Ice Cube, but it was different today and it was fantastic.
