My First ACC Game

ULUM4

My first game with Louisville as a member of the ACC was magnificent. It started out with the best CardMarch I have ever been to. It didn’t seem like I tailgated since 3pm either. I know some were out longer but that’s the earliest I could get out. Walking through the sea of CardNation after the CardMarch was amazing too. Walked by Luke Hancock, the entire UofL Basketball Team and even seen Miss Rose Bridgewater. It was a great time. Then we took the long walk to Section 9 Row GG to our seats. I thought I was gonna die. I sat down and did not move until the clock hit 0:00. (unlike 20% of the crowd) But I understood this time, Late night game, work and school tomorrow, I will give you some slack. I will not however give the 15,000 people who decided to spend the 2nd half on the party deck any slack. lol. They really should make those standing room only seats. It would increase capacity too!. The game was what I expected from a “Rookie” QB. Will Gardner did have a rough night but he didn’t do anything wrong that coaching and a nice game vs Murray State won’t fix. 3rd most yards in a opener under Petrino at QB isn’t too shabby either. Dom Brown and the entire receiving core impressed me. We said multiple people would have to step up to cover DP being out and boy did they ever. The entire Defense was amazing too. Lozo, Rankins, Kelsey AKA Mr 55 (cheap pop), Floyd, Sample, Holliman, Brown, Burgess and whoever else I forgot just made me glow.

55

55aarons-louisville

55. Not just a random number to me. It’s a number that has followed me around my life. It was always my number in any sports I played. Whenever I create players on games they are always 55. It’s the number that comes after 54. One day I hope to live to see the age of 55. All valid points. Today I monitored twitter a little more than often and noticed that its getting as bad as Facebook there. So many things going down in one day. So many gripes, so many issues. So I decided to put down a list of 55 things I observed today. Here we go in no particular order.

Repost February 6, 2012: CardNation Needs To Do Better

This is a story I wrote right after the Belk Bowl but right before our Final Four run of 2012. You would have thought I wrote it Saturday morning. I hope you guys who I’m talking about realize how you are acting and make the necessary changes so that we don’t become people whom we despise. Enjoy CardNation needs To Do Better…

CardNation Needs To Do Better

For some people CardNation is just a catchy little saying, or a way to hashtag a twitter comment or just words on a screen. For me, I am proud to be a member of CardNation. As a former student-athlete there ,as a fan and as a person who loves this program unconditionally what is now happening with CardNation is eating me inside. Its time to call out CardNation and I never wanted to do that. But here we go…

Doss-Valley Homecoming Tonight: Why It’s Special And Will Be Fun

Dragons

As a regular everyday person, time flies at an unprecedented rate after you get out of high school. Blink and you may miss a lot. For an athlete who plays in college and gets his degree and stays in the field of sports, it is that much faster. Tonight, at halftime of the Doss-Valley game, they will honor my Senior Year team which was without a doubt the best in school history. I know a lot of you are thinking that isn’t saying much since Doss has had only about 5 good years anyways total. Nevertheless, my Senior team won a then record 9 games, the first District Championship in the schools’ history, and held the highest state ranking in school history at #3 that still stands today. We never talked about individual stats, we played as brothers, as a team. I can’t wait to see my brothers tonight, but there is another reason I’m excited to go to the game tonight. They scheduled us to play Valley, who is led by University of Louisville recruit QB Robert Jones. I love football so you know this is a win-win for me tonight.

Valley

Robert Jones is a dual threat QB in the class of ’14 and is one of the most underrated QB’s in the state this year. Jones has already this season recorded 64-149 passing for 1086 yards and 10 TDS with 456 yards rushing and 9 TD’s. Jones, who will be a preferred walk-on if he chooses UL is ready for the challenge. When asked what his role will be on Louisville’s team, he stated “I don’t think I will have an immediate role because I’m a walk-on, but when I gain some weight and learn the offense I think I will compete for the spot.” When I talked to him about people’s perceptions since he’s not as highly ranked as he should be and that they see walk-on next to his name, he stated “I say don’t underestimate me for being a walk-on.” I have a feeling if he is the Cards to lose since he told me he had been a member of CardNation his whole life. Robert’s top 3 schools at this time are UL, WKU, uk. You can follow him on Twitter at @Robert_Jones10

CardNation Speaks: The Finale (CSZ Version)

100_0488

This week is the week we all have been waiting for……College Football. The feeling in the air, the sound of the big hits and the adrenaline rush from big plays are all things I have been anticipating since I left New Orleans. This week I sat down and thought to myself, do people want to see the same stories on all the blogs or do they want to see something different, their story? I started to email, text and DM some of the most knowledgeable members of CardNation I know. One by one they answered back and it made for some really good stories. Today I thought I would try something different for the series but yet the same really. People forget at times that some of the biggest fans of the University of Louisville are us, the members of CSZ. So to cap off the series we will bring you the thoughts Justin ( @JRVille25 ), Steve ( @Stiz_CSZ ), Paige ( @PaigeS_502 ), Daryl ( @Darylfoust4 ) and myself ( @Jeremy_CSZ ). We hope you have enjoyed this series as much as we have.

Thanks CardNation & Enjoy!
