ESPN blogger Andrea Adelson says that “this could be the year of the quarterback in the ACC” since so many teams have starters returning. She also says that some teams will have a bit of intrigue at the quarterback spot this spring. Obviously, the Louisville Cardinals are one of the teams with some intrigue.

Here is her full article to get you caught up on the rest of the ACC teams and their quarterback spots. This is what she had to say about Louisville:

Here is the 2015 football schedule for the Louisville Cardinals. It obviously starts out with a bang as the Cards take on the Auburn Tigers in Atlanta, Georgia. Another big game looks like Clemson coming to town for a Thursday night game. We already know how exciting those games are.

When the Cards hit the road to face Florida State, they will do so coming off of a bye week. They will finish the season with consecutive road games at Pittsburgh and at Kentucky following Thanksgiving once again.

The following comes from Andrea Adelson, who covers the ACC for ESPN.com. She recently posted an article wrapping up the first season in the ACC for the Cards. It may not have ended how we wanted it to, but I agree that overall, it was a successful first season in our new league.

From ESPN.com:

There is only one way to describe the story of Louisville’s first season in the ACC:

Especially when you consider what the Cardinals had to deal with throughout 2014. Forget about the new staff and schemes. Louisville had to go without its best player for seven games; played three different quarterbacks; and faced perhaps the toughest schedule in school history.

Quick Reaction: Louisville vs Georgia Post Game

The football season is over for the Louisville Cardinals. While the 9-4 record is very good and I would call the season a success, that will be for another post. This one is just quick knee-jerk reactions to the Belk Bowl. The Louisville Cardinals fell to the Georgia Bulldogs 37-14 in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Cards got Chubbed – We knew who the main threat on offense was for the Georgia Bulldogs, true freshman running back Nick Chubb. That didn’t seem to matter as Chubb ran all over the Cards for 266 yards and 2 touchdowns. He set records as well. I believe they said it was the most rushing yards by a Georgia player in a bowl game, as well as a Belk Bowl record. He was just incredible. Even with Georgia not having a great quarterback in any part of the game, Chubb was a beast. I think they will be just fine without Todd Gurley next season. Louisville just had trouble all game bringing him down.

Bobby Petrino did a short interview with the ACC Digital Network while at the Belk Bowl Press Conference on Wednesday. One thing that he was asked about was who would be lining up under center for the Cards. He says that Will Gardner will not be available, which we already knew. He then says that Reggie Bonnafon should be ready to go.

Final ACC Power Poll from the Digital Network

Jeff Fischel has been releasing a new power poll each week for ACC football on the ACC Digital Network. This is the final one of the season. Not a bad first year for Bobby Petrino and the Cards!

Video: Cards and Cats Scuffle Before Saturday’s Game

Got to love the wide receiver for UK (Jeff Badet) that squares up to fight and he isn’t even suited up to play. Easy to talk when you know you won’t get hit in the game.

Louisville vs Kentucky Game Highlights

It was a fun day at PJCS. I won’t bore you with words, just check the video.

Get Excited: “The Show in the State” comes to PJCS this Saturday

If you are a Louisville football season ticket holder, the time you are waiting for all season has come. You had to suffer through bad home games like Miami and Florida State, but it was all worth it. Getting wins over ACC opponents like NC State and Wake Forest were just to pass the time. Any game you went to, it was just an event to hold us all over. It was all leading to this week. You know, when “the show in town, in the state” finally visits Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium. Oh yes folks, we are blessed that Kentucky football is coming to put the show on display in front of our very eyes.

Don’t know what I am referring to? Back in April of this year, UK Offensive Coordinator Neal Brown had this to say after mentioning that there were no pro teams in the area. “The other team doesn’t want to hear that, but it’s it. We’re the show in town, in the state.” Good to know.

Let’s take a look at how the state (Commonwealth) of Kentucky has been represented by “The Show” this season. They are our leaders, so for the sake of all of us, surely it has gone well…

Orange Bowl Still Possible for Louisville

Harry Douglas Orange Bowl

It will take winning and some outside help, but the Louisville Cardinals still have a chance to play in the Orange Bowl this season, which is the BCS Bowl that the ACC is tied to. The only poll that matters now is the College Football Playoff Ranking, so that is the one I will refer to. Louisville enters this week ranked 24th.

Now let’s be clear. When talking about the teams that have a shot at the Orange Bowl from the ACC, they would need Florida State to make it into the Playoff, which would open up the Orange Bowl spot for the next best ACC team. Remember, “next best ACC team” just means the highest ranked ACC team. Head to head means nothing, perception of teams means nothing. It is all about who is ranked highest.

2015 Louisville QB commit has monster game!

247sports.com

Louisville is making it a priority to hang on to 2015 QB commit Lamar Jackson and last he he showed another reason why. Jackson scored the game winning TD in the final seconds to keep his Boynton Beach team’s undefeated streak alive. Jackson’s TD gave Beach a 63-58 win over Coconut Creek.

Jackson threw for 346 yards (2 TD) while gaining 146 yards (5 TD) on the ground. To put that in prospective Jackson accounted for 492 total yards and SEVEN TD’s……..let me say that again SEVEN TD’s. Bobby has some work to do but it will be great to see Jackson next season in a QB race that looks to be wide open.

ACC Football Schedule and Standings: Week 8

The Cards are off this Saturday because of their game next Thursday against Florida State. There are still some other good games this weekend to pay attention to in the ACC division races. The Coastal is obviously all jumbled up as 1 game separates all 7 teams. Boston College needs to get back to their winning ways, so hosting Wake Forest should help that. Can Virginia get back on track against UNC and show that the first half of the season wasn’t a fluke?

And it will be good to see if Clemson can go on the road and play in a loud environment…
