Sporting News ranks Louisville Basketball in the Top 10

SNtop23

 

This years College Basketball preseason edition of Sporting News ranks the Cards at #7. Sporting News also has 3 other ACC teams (Duke, UNC, and Virginia) in the top 10. IMO anywhere between 7-12 is a fair ranking for Louisville this season. Regardless of ranking there is no doubt that this will be one of the best conferences we have seen in awhile. #ACC

Predicted 2014 ACC Football Standings

acc

The official media predictions will be released on Monday, but I figured I would go ahead and give my predictions for how I think the standings will be in the ACC this season. This prediction will mean about as much as the media one that comes out tomorrow, which is not much at all. The games have to be played on the field, so whatever we predict is just good for conversation and debate. Pretty soon I will post my game-by-game prediction for the Cards, but for now, here are my predicted standings…

1) Florida State

2) Louisville

3) Clemson

4) Syracuse

5) North Carolina State

Redshirt freshman Tyler Bruggman has decided to transfer from Washington State, and it looks like the Louisville Cardinals could be the landing spot for the former 4-star QB (ESPN, Rivals, and Scout) from Phoenix, Arizona.

It’s July 1: The Louisville Cardinals are in the ACC!

Louisville ACC

It is finally here! July 1, 2014. The University of Louisville is an official member of the Atlantic Coast Conference! Not the Big East. Not the American Athletic Conference. This is the ACC! Back in November of 2012, it was announced that this move would happen. The date seemed so far away. We would have to endure a season in the American Athletic Conference, but we did it. The schedules were less than stellar, but we made it. Now we enter a whole new ballpark.

In basketball, Louisville joins what could possibly be the best basketball conference ever assembled. The Big East had some awesome years and was consistently the best basketball conference. This version of the ACC could be even better. With Louisville, you will also have Duke, North Carolina, Syracuse, Pittsburgh, Notre Dame, Virginia, and more.

Athlon released their predictions for the conference finishes earlier in June, and here is what they predicted for the ACC in 2014. They have the Cards finishing 3rd in the Atlantic Division with a record of 8-4 overall and 5-3 in the ACC. I don’t know about you, but that sounds like a solid first year in the ACC to me.

This is a different Louisville team than the Bahamas version

Russ Smith

By Justin Renck:

Louisville vs Duke. Pitino vs Krzykewski. A Final Four berth on the line. It doesn’t get much better than this! On Sunday around 5:05 pm, the Cards and Blue Devils will tip-off in Indianapolis, with the winner moving on to Atlanta in the Final Four. Back on November 21 of this season, these teams met in the Battle 4 Atlantis in the Bahamas, with Duke winning 76-71. Duke pretty much has the same team and plays the same way. The Cards are certainly a different team.
