NCAA Selection Show Podcast

CSZLogoSkyline white 2

Good morning CSZNation (Yes, I’m still trying to make this a thing, deal with it) Hopefully you have had a great weekend and have enjoyed a few days off. I know I have. Our podcast schedule for this week has changed just a little bit. Normally we run Monday’s and Friday’s at noon. Not this week. Tomorrow night we are going to do a special selection show at http://tobtr.com/s/7434917 at 7pm EST. Why tomorrow night when today is selection Sunday? Good question. The answer is twofold. 1) We want to watch the selection show tonight and have time to break it down. 2) The Women’s selection show is happening tomorrow night and we would like to bring their selection to you live. So there you have it. Tune in tomorrow night and check out Steve, Justin and myself as we flawlessly predict the entire tourney. We will also have on special guests Daryl Foust and College Basketball expert Perrin Johnson. I myself cannot wait to see where Rick Pitino & Jeff Walz teams end up this season in the tourney brackets. Give us a call to let us know what you think will go down in the NCAA Tournament as well at (914) 338-0180. Should be a blast so tune in, call us and join in.

Go Cards!

This week on 55…..

We are coming to the end of another season of 55. Don’t worry though, still 3-4 episodes left this season and I am confident it will be renewed for a third season. Seeing that I am the only one who could approve or cancel 55 I would have to be a dufus to deny the approval. (Shout out to Steve) Speaking of Steve. Did you tune into the brand new CardinalSportsZone podcast yesterday? We will talk about that too. The ACC Championships have wrapped up for some and are about to gear up for others. Where did the Cards start the week in the polls? Find out here.

1) First off I want to wish my mom a speedy recovery. She means the world to me and normally I don’t talk about personal issues on 55 but if you get a moment, say a prayer. I put her for #1 because she is my number 1….mushy I know (Don’t care)

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…..

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.

Never Graduate

espnu

 

Before I get to the point of the story, I want to just lay some things out. I am a calm and collective guy. Even at CSZ we rarely get into the name calling game, with the exception of the loose cannon Daryl Foust. I myself never get into the UL/uk wars because of family I have who support uk and anything I said would pertain to them. They are just as calm and non-confronting people as I am. They are rare. I also have been lucky enough to find friends that don’t fit the typical stereotype of the Kentucky fanatic. We are good to each other. My Uncle Jerry called me before the title game a few years back and said don’t worry, you got this. He is as blue as they come. So to all the people I love who are kentucky fans the following story will seem un-Jeremy like. I apologize. Read the rest of this entry

Summer Thoughts

CSZLogoSkyline white 2

 

So this has been one interesting summer. I have been swamped with work (a good thing) and we are now in the ACC! I am so excited about that part. The purgatory known as the AAC is over and now it is on to the next chapter of our greatness….the A-C-C

Louisville ACC

It’s so pretty….

Well let’s go over some things that have happened this summer. Teddy signed with the Vikings, Pryor with the Jets, Smith with the Eagles, Philon with the Steelers, Copeland with the Jags and Perry with the Bears. A pretty eventful summer for the former football Cards. We are all so very proud.

The Baseball team also had a crazy amount of signees to MLB teams. We definitely lost a ton of talent

Congrats to those guys as well…..

Other Cardinals To Look For In The Draft Today

draftnfl

So far your University of Louisville Cardinals have done very well in the NFL draft. 3 first round selections for the Cards are the most ever in one year. No more than 1 had ever been taken in round one in the history of the program. Calvin Pryor (18) Marcus Smith (26)  and Teddy Bridgewater (32) now give the Cards 11 players to be drafted during the first round. Preston Brown was taken on day 2 as the ninth pick of the third round. So as historic and successful as this draft has already been for UofL, will we hear any names on day 3? I say yes. Who is still available to be selected? Will they be drafted? I will update this all day during the draft to tell you just who made it. Here are the guys still available for selection. Good luck and Go Cards!

55 (Episode 20)

 55-9

This week…..on 55…..We come to an end of an era. No more Luuuuuuuuuuuuke, Russ, Wichita or Van Beast. No more of this 4 year version of Boom. We will miss you and cherish this class like no other. We did get another NCAA title this week and the girls of boom are still rolling so there’s that. 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.

1) On Friday night, which seems like a week ago, UL Men’s basketball team lost to a team none of us like….

2) This happened though….

3) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qX5xZQYxZpg

4) Yeah I know scoreboard…

55 (Episode 19)

55-9

This week…..on 55…..

As we come down to the last few episodes of 55, it’s only fitting that the end of the basketball season is near too. I just wish there was something to talk about. Oh yeah…we get uk again! So in the spirit of revenge on those we despise more than Digger Phelps (I may have went too far) here are the 55 most ridiculous things I have heard, had to debate, or just thought about this past week. This …..is….55.

1) On Thursday night we opened up our defense of the National Championship with a tough game vs the Manhattan Jaspers, coached by former Louisville asst coach Steve Masiello. I like to believe we played the basketball version of a game called chess. Rick didn’t want to embarrass Mass so we played tit-for-tat (lol) and won the game when we needed to. Played smothering defense as well.

 

2) smother

3) Well that had the opposite effect than I intended

4) Nevertheless, we move onto our next conquest which are the mighty Billikens of Saint Louis. Top 10 team at times this year, former conference foes…what could scare us about the Billikens?

5) billiken

6) Oh yeah..That was creepy….in more ways then one

7) I digress

55 (Episode 18)

55-9

This week…..on 55…..

You know I normally start out the opening paragraph to 55 with a preview of what im going to talk about then end it with: Well here we go. Once again, I share with you the 55 most ridiculous things I have heard, had to debate, or just thought about this past week. This …..is….55. But this week there is ONE ridiculous thing I have heard this week and it’s our UofL Men’s Basketball team being shafted with a 4 seed. So in that spirit…blah blah blah…this is 55.

1) I am going to start off 55 this week with Men’s tournament atrocity. Louisville is a 2, Wichita is in the toughest region and #25 SMU doesn’t even get in? Who is running this thing?

2) monkeys

3) Oh….well, that..um, makes a little more sense then…Carry on

4) I digress

5) They placed us in a region with Duke, Michigan, uk and the undefeated Wichita State Shockers……This has got to be the biggest group of idiots since

6) ncaa

7) They knew what they were talking about last year though…..smu

8) Yes I have decided to insert smu for smh in opposition of them being omitted from the NCAA Tourney….sure glad FU didn’t get left out.

9) Wordplay is FUn

10) Moving forward

55 (Episode 16)

55-9

This week…..on 55…..

I have decided instead of searching for different pics of the number 55, I would make this the official pic of 55 week in and week out. I would be up to viewer suggested pics also. If you see a pic that you would want included just private message it to me and it will be under consideration. This week has been an up and down week in the world of UofL Athletics, we will go into detail in a few. So this week we will talk ridiculous statements, wins, losses and Vince McMahon…maybe. Well here we go. Once again, I share with you the 55 most ridiculous things I have heard, had to debate, or just thought about this past week. This …..is….55.

1) First off I want to wish my mom the speediest of recoveries. I almost didn’t write 55 this week due to the fact I had been at the hospital a ton and my mind had been on overload. But in the end, my mom needs something to read tonight! lol. Get well soon mom….love you!

2) #MommasBoy

3) Oh well

4) Moving forward

5) This week I purchased the WWE Network, now I know what some of you will say…that’s stupid…I don’t call your Breaking Bad and Dexter and Walking Dead stupid so don’t rain on my parade. I pay $9.99 a month and can watch unlimited VOD and I get every $60 ppv included in my monthly fee. So get over it….I’m saving money. Vince DM me so I can give you the details for compensation for promoting your product.

6) nochance

7) Well…..that’s not nice. And to think, I supported the XFL

8) kobe

9) Yeah you’re right Kobe…that was a lie

10) This week the Boy’s High School 6th & 7th Regional Tourney draw was decided

11)

12) Good Luck young men and do the city proud!

13) Shout out to CSZ’s Justin Renck whose Holy Cross team had a great season and made some noise this year. It’s a building block for the future and next season they will make Regionals

14) #Salute

15) My brother from another mother Terrance Farley’s (@VilleBlessed43) PRP team is still in the hunt for a state crown and we found out last week his Center Lamontrey Harris won 6th region Player of the Year. I know T has worked very hard with him since he joined the PRP staff this year. Congrats and good luck…until you play my alma-mater that is. lol

16) #GoDragons

17) This week started off as a decent week in Cardinal Athletics. It was almost a tale of 2 months. Here’s what happened at the end of February…

23) Lastly on Friday the Men’s Track and Field team were in 1st in the AAC Championships after day 1 while the Women were 2nd….

24) Great week…until the Calendar turned to March Saturday as a different kind of March madness ensued

marchmadness

25) UL Baseball loses 6-2 to #17 IU on Saturday

26) Even though there was a very valiant effort by Montrezl and the Basketball Cards, late mistakes and lack of focus lead to a 72-66 loss to #21 Memphis team

27) The Men’s track team finished 2nd and women finished 5th

28) Sunday Men’s Tennis fell 5-2 to #2 Oklahoma

29) Can we go back to February?

30) There were a few bright spots on Saturday though

31) @UofLBaseball did follow the loss to IU with a 8-2 win over Toledo and Women’s Lacrosse upset #18 Denver and the #3 Women’s basketball team slapped Cincy 75-51

32) I guess we can’t win everything…

33) Wait….we can’t win everything?

34) I would hate to cheer for a team who thought they should win everything

35) smiley

36) I had a very interesting text convo today:

37) Me: What’s up man….Yall gonna get much snow?

38) Anonymous: We may have been swept by a non tourney team but you all got swept by a bubble team.

39) Me: What? You must have got your convos mixed up, I asked about the weather

40) Anonymous: Memphis won’t even make the NCAA Tourney

41) Me: So that’s a no on the snow?

42) Needless to say reality escapes some people….FYI this is the same guy who texted me after I tweeted out great win by UL tonight after the Temple game and said “Must suck to celebrate beating a team that has less than 12 wins” yeah karma sucks bro

43) I still refuse to treat him the way he treats me because I have friends and family who are rational that do cheer for uk and any statement I made would bunch them into that group

44) Speaking of one of my friends

45)

46) SMH

47) I have it on good authority Corey used that same razor later in the evening

48) The new Women’s Basketball AP Poll came out today and the Cards remained steady at #3 (full poll here)
