draftexpress.com

draftexpress.com

Could Pitino have another move up his sleeve for the 2015 class? According to Justin Young of Hoopseen.com it seems very possible.

6’9 Yankuba Sima could very well be the next diamond in the rough steal for Pitino. At 18 years old Sima is projected to go #19 in the 1st round of the 2016 NBA Draft by draftexpress.com. Jonathan Givony of Draft Express had this to say about Sima’s upside:

Louisville WR Commit has the #1 play on ESPN SportsCenter Top 10

2015 Louisville commit Dahu Green had the #1 play on SportsCenter’s top 10 today with his incredible one handed catch. After LJ Scott’s leaping touchdown last year this will be the second year in a row a Louisville commit has had the #1 play on the top 10. Green will be a play maker for Petrino and this isn’t the last time he will leave us amazed.

55 (Season 2)

This week on 55………

We have new uni’s to talk about again for the second straight week, these as hated as last weeks were loved. We have a triumphs and let downs. We will talk about Teddys first start in the NFL. The victory over Wake and the smothering defense. The new Louisville Slugger Gerod Holliman and much more. So sit down, buckle up and enjoy the ride. These are the 55 most intriguing,ridiculous or down right best or worst things I have heard this week. This…is….55

FootballvsWakeForestHolliman4

 

2) Well there’s an image for you and an overall description for what our defense did on Saturday. We knocked out Wake. giving up -22 yards rushing to go along with 8 sacks and 4 INT’s, our defense kept us in the game and won the game as far as I am concerned. Holliman, Burgess and Rankins recorded Interceptions. Lozo got 3 of the 8 sacks. On offense the rookie QB looked shaky at times but when he started feeding the beast Brandon Radcliff (130 yds 2 TD) , he seemed to run the offense more fluently. Moving forward we have to take care of the ball better. 4 fumbles vs Wake is unacceptable but I think that will improve with reps for Reggie. Also stop the penalties now please….signed all of Football. The Cards take on Syracuse at the Carrier Dome Friday night.

4) They started calling Calvin Pryor that this pre season, maybe it will catch on for Gerod. Once only known for his earth shattering hit, Holliman has come full circle. With his 6th INT of the season Saturday he is currently #1 in the country and just 4 away from tying UofL’s single season record. Anthony Floyd had 10 in one season and 18 overall which is also a record.

 

5) Teddy Bridgewater got his first NFL start yesterday…..

Bobby Petrino announced today that Louisville QB Will Gardner is out and Freshman Reggie Bonnafon will start in his place. Gardner went down with an apparent knee injury last Saturday against FIU. Will a great performance Saturday be enough to win Reggie the job for good? Going to be interesting for sure.

Top 2015 Louisville Football recruit to enroll early

scout.com

scout.com

According to  an AL.com report the Cards top 2015 football recruit Traveon Samuel plans to enroll early. The 4 star athlete will play all over the field for Bobby Petrino when he arrives to campus and is looking to make an impact next season.

From Article:

It’ll likely be hard for any school to pry Samuel away from Louisville. He’s got a great relationship with Louisville defensive line coach L.D. Scott — They talk on an everyday basis, Samuel says — and plans to enroll early at the Atlantic Coast Conference school. He will sign a financial aid agreement with the Cardinals on Dec. 10 and enroll for the school’s spring semester after he graduates from Central-Phenix City.

Louisville head coach Bobby Petrino, who is known as an offensive mastermind, has promised to utilize Samuel in a multitude of ways. Samuel expects to get time at slot receiver, running back and even as a Wildcat quarterback.

He has good hands, runs solid routes and although he’s small, he could fit in a Darren Sproles-type role at Louisville.

Samuel, rated a 4 star player, chose Louisville over offers from Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, FSU, LSU, Ohio St., Tennessee, and more. Don’t be suprised to see Samuel lined up for the Cards when they take the field against Auburn in the Georgia Dome. Follow Traveon Samuel on twitter @TraDay_DoThis

Louisville RB Michael Dyer missed the first three games of the season with an injury sustained in the Cards preseason scrimmage. Most expected Dyer to make his return last week against Virginia but that was not able to happen. After much anticipation it looks like Michael Dyer will make his return this Saturday when the Cards travel to FIU. Bobby Petrino met with the media today and had this to say about Dyer:

Last night 5 star SG Antonio Blakeney announced his decommitment from Louisville (which shocked nobody). The Cards still have Donovan Mitchell, Deng Adel, and Raymond Spalding in the fold but will look to sign at least one more. Let’s take a look at the candidates to fill that spot.

Most Likely:

PJ Dozier

Position: PG/SG

6’7/ 180 lbs

The Cards were in a very good position to land Dozier before the commitment of Antonio Blakeney. Some believe the Cards may have even been very close to landing a commitment from the 6’7 guard. Dozier had a visit to Louisville set up for October 3rd but will now visit UNC that day. Dozier’s father told Steve Jones of the Courier Journal that the Dozier family had not heard from the Cards since AB commitment but would be open to listening to the Cards again. Many people including 2015 commit Donovan Mitchell have made it known that they would love to see Dozier in a Louisville jersey. The question now is can Pitino make it happen.

After taking a 23-21 loss to Virginia the Cards have dropped in a few of this weeks bowl projections. With that said the Cards still have many goals still in tact. One thing is for sure, being in the ACC should provide #CardNation with some intriguing possibilities come bowl season regardless of record.

The Stemmys (My Midweek Awards)

red carpet 2

 

In this week’s edition of The Stemmys we touch on recruiting, Louisville Football and fantasy football!

The “Who’d you say can’t recruit?!” Award: Bobby Petrino

All we have heard is how Bobby isn’t getting it done on the recruiting trail. Well he shut that door this week with an emphatic SLAM!! Just this week alone Petrino landed former 4 star All-American WR Paul Harris and went into Bama country to steal 4 star LB Amonte Caban. The Cards now have the #27 class according to Rivals.com. Still say Bobby can’t recruit……….I’ll wait.

The Next Level Moment Award: Jeff Walz landing Asia Durr

This week Louisville Womens Basketball Coach Jeff Walz took the next step to winning a National Title when he landed the Nations #1 player Asia Durr. Walz has had some very talented teams while at Louisville but always seemed to be missing that one piece. Now Walz has that piece and the #1 recruiting class in the Nation. Ah I can see the Banner now.

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…..
