Cardinal Sports Zone radio show: 8/22/15

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.

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.

Just a few quick notes before I head out the door this morning. You may already know all of these things, but maybe not…

*Football practice begins on Thursday for the University of Louisville. They will have a team meeting on Wednesday and then really begin on Thursday.

*There is supposed to be an announcement (I think today) as to if any practices are open to the public. I haven’t heard anything, but I wouldn’t be surprised if maybe the first two or three are open.

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! Today, we talked a lot about the Alabama game in 2018, the upcoming Auburn game, the fact that Auburn fans are buying our tickets, and much more. Click the soundcloud link below and give it a listen. 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.

A few of the people he met with are writers, so you will probably see posts coming about his visit to ESPN. Here is something to hold you over as Petrino discusses why he liked having a big season opener like Auburn and he talks a little Devonte Fields.

Lyndell Wilson is considered to be the top outside linebacker in the country according to ESPN and 247 Sports. Rivals has him as the third best.

Louisville tight end Charles Standberry also attended Carver High School, and that is who Wilson references in this tweet. How much can Standberry help?
