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.

55 (Season 2 Episode 2)

55

 

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…..

Louisville RB commit James Allen picked the Cards over offers from the likes of Tennessee, Miami, Ole Miss, and Arkansas and I think we will all be glad he did. As you read this post I assume you haven’t seen Allen run the ball just yet. If that is the case you are in for a treat. Click the link below and enjoy!

Video: Lorenzo Mauldin gives game ball to Bobby Petrino

Great moment from after Mondays win over Miami. This should close the argument that the players don’t like playing for Bobby.

55 (Season 2 Episode 1)

55

 

It is finally that time of year! No silly, not football season, it is time for my weekly episodic series I affectionately name 55. First off I want to send a HUGE Shoutout to Tim Haag and Birds Nest Graphics for designing the new and permanent logo for 55. You can follow Tim at @UofLBirdsNest. I decided a permanent logo would help establish a familiar brand. If you guys find the number 55 in weird places still feel free to send them to me as they will still be included somehow. Without further adieu…..

This week on 55……….

We talk the promised land, We catch you up on a ton of things that have happened since I’ve been gone. (Please no Kelly Clarkson jokes) and a lot of other things that may or may not be of importance to you. I will bank on the fact they WILL. No pun intended. We will go over tonight’s huge Blackout. (The one on the field) So here we go, here are the 55 most ridiculous things I have heard, had to debate, or just thought about this past week. This …..is……55.

4 Star QB commits to Louisville

247sports.com

247sports.com

Elite 4 Star QB Lamar Jackson (2015) announced via Twitter that he will be a Louisville Cardinal.

Jackson chose the Cards over offers from Auburn, Clemson, FSU, Ohio St., South Carolina, and Georgia. Rated as a duel threat QB Jackson passed for 1,740 yards and 25 TD’s while rushing for 1,401 yards and 16 TDs last season. Louisville assistant Lamar Thomas was the point man on landing Jackson.

Lamar Jackson has been a hot name on the recruiting trail as of late and plans on making an impression early. Jackson’s Coach told Steve Jones of the Courier Journal, “I don’t know what Louisville has as far as quarterbacks (returning in 2015),” the coach said. “All I can tell you is they better be real, real good. Because if not, you’re going to see a freshman quarterback.” Can’t wait to see this kid in PJCS! Follow Lamar Jackson on Twitter @Tito_LJackson
