Matt Fortuna, who blogs for ESPN.com, recently broke down the strongest and weakest positions for the Louisville Cardinals heading into the 2013 football season. Here is what he had to say.

Andrea Adelson and Matt Fortuna cover Big East football for ESPN.com. Here are some notes from recent posts from these two about UofL football.
*One constant in the Big East remained throughout the spring: Louisville looks as good as advertised, as the majority of its starters and nearly every member of its coaching staff return.
Some may think it is a little early for these kinds of things, but that is the sports media world that we live in! We are 3 weeks out from the men’s basketball team winning the National Championship, and there are already polls for next season. Such is the case with the NFL Draft. This year’s draft just ended this past weekend, and there are already mock drafts for next year. In short, go out and see Teddy Bridgewater play in person this season!
Adam Lucas, who runs coveredinred.com, has come up with another awesome UofL wallpaper that we had to share. This one is of star wide receiver DeVante Parker! You can see the back picture is Parker’s great touchdown grab in the Sugar Bowl! For more of Adam’s work that he has shared with CSZ, click here. Make sure to check out his website for more of his great work. Go Cards!
You don’t go 10-2 and make it to the Sugar Bowl without some great individual performances, and those were recognized by the Big East with their posteason honors. Teddy Bridgewater was named Offensive Player of the Year, and Charlie Strong was Coach of the Year, but the Cards has more players honored…

On Friday night when the University of Louisville and University of Cincinnati met on the field, nothing was for certain….well other than the rain. UofL overcame 2 double digit deficits to down UC 34-31 in the first ever OT meeting between the schools in their long storied rivalry. There was a big game feeling on this evening that felt even bigger with the weather conditions. You could tell there were gonna be some fireworks.

Another weekend has passed and the University of Louisville football team is still undefeated. The Cardinals (6-0) traveled to Pittsburgh (2-4) this past weekend to take on the Panthers in their Big East conference opener. Prior to Saturday’s game, Louisville was 1-6 in their conference opening games since joining the Big East, this coupled with a 11 a.m. kickoff had some fans nervous as the Cardinals looked to improve to 6-0 for the first time since 2006.

Found this video on youtube from user Mshultsy. If it doesn’t get you pumped up for the game, I am not sure what will!
Cardinal Sports Zone is happy to have Rob Jones contribute to the site! Our hope is to have a weekly write-up from Rob during the 2012 Football Season. Rob used to manage the local 1450 AM sports radio station as well as it’s website, so the man knows what he is talking about! What better way for him to jump into this than to give his thoughts on the UofL-UK game! Check it out…
All this week, we will be bringing you exclusive write-ups from former UofL football players about the rivalry with UK. We have asked them just their general thoughts about the rivalry, and some mention their best and worst memories. We hope you enjoy these! Go Cards!
Up next in our series, we hear from both Eric Wood and Lavell Boyd! We still have a few longer write-ups to post before the game, so we figured we would just combine these two! Enjoy!
