ESPN released a list of their top Basketball/Football tandems in college sports. Being an all-around athletics program is something we take a lot of pride in at the University of Louisville. Basketball team are coming off of a National Championship a few years ago and the football team coming off of multiple bowl victories. I think we are ranked a few spots too low but am happy overall with the perception just a few days into the Petrino era. Louisville was ranked the 5th best program for the 2 sports. Check out the full list below!
Tomorrow the ACC will announce the Men’s College Basketball pairings for the 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 seasons. The Cards will begin their first season of play in the ACC this season and it is one that will set up some blockbuster match ups for Pitino and company. A lot of questions will be answered tomorrow:
Who will the Cards play twice?
Will the Cards go to the Dean Dome or Cameron?
Will the ACC take the Big East approach and have the Cards play Duke, UNC, and Cuse all twice?
All these questions and more will be answered tomorrow at 11 AM so have your calenders out and ready!
The ACC pairings will be released on their website TheACC.com
Shock. That’s what most of CardNation including myself felt when Louisville was announced the 4 seed in the Midwest bracket. A bracket that will go down as one of the all time hardest including 3 of last years final four (Louisville, Wichita St., and Michigan) and the Cards hated rival Uk. Every analyst on ESPN and CBS last night went out of their way to talk about the difficulty of this bracket BUT after the dust settled and the shock wore off I have come to a conclusion……the Cards got a pretty good draw.
After the Cards win Thursday we found out they would be accepting a bid to the Russell Athletics Bowl in Orlando Florida. This is where the real question comes in: When the Cards line up in Orlando who will be on the other side of the ball? There are 3 realistic expectations here so lets take a look:
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.

FINALLY!!! It is a celebration and also a sigh of relief! The sigh of relief is because of what we are getting out of, and the celebration is because of what we are getting into!
Now I am not going to get into too many facts like TV ratings, conference votes, and all of that stuff. Just going to give my opinion on the situation.
