55

 

This week on 55…..

We talk the dismissal of Chris Jones. We also cover other Louisville men who aren’t sure they want to be Louisville men anymore. Rankings, rankings and rankings. ACC MVP? Also big news in the land of CSZ to talk about and I can’t wait to share it. We also have some combine results and assessments. On ESPN/ESPN2 tonight CardNation takes over and we say good bye to a friend of the site, Elle Raiser. So here we go.

Without further adieu, here are the most ridiculous, outlandish, interesting or just downright obnoxious things I have heard this week. THIS is 55…..

Matt Colburn: Hate It, But It Happened

FootballvsFSUPetrino

One of the guys I most looking forward to coming to UL this year to play Football was Matt Colburn. Mr. Football in South Carolina, great athlete and better kid. So what happened? We pulled his scholarship 2 days before signing day. That sucks. But guess what, it happens. Kids flip on schools on signing day and schools change their minds on signing day when more people commit than they thought. USC accepted Lozo’s commit then cut him after they realized they had too many guys….or something like that. Remember Daniel Gresham, Ace Wales, Marquez Valdez? All committed and none of their commitments were honored here and that’s just a few examples.

55…Kinda 12/22/14

55

What’s going on CardNation? I know what you are thinking. Mannnnnnnnn it’s been a long time since we got an edition of 55. Well in a few weeks the 2015 season of 55 will be up and rolling. Every year I choose to work a seasonal job for some extra Xmas cash. I liked the place I worked last year so much I decided to grace them with my presence (not presents) once again. I have worked an astonishing 25 straight days without a day off and all of those but one were 10 hour shifts. It will be a nice Xmas in the Wahman house this year to say the least. I will get my shoutouts to the crew at Fanatics and then into some business in this edition of 55…kinda. Shout-outs to my crew at Fanatics (AKA NFL/NBAshop.com): Jess, Leah, Tyler, Renaaaado. White James (his nickname he gave himself), Lucky Charms, Cody, R Kelly, Alonzo, Momma J, Misty, Debbie, Elaine, Penny, Nathan, Aaron, Rhonda and Mustachio. I think that’s all. If I forgot you then please remind me tomorrow at work and I will pretend to care. Without further adieu, here are the most ridiculous, outlandish, interesting or just downright obnoxious things I have heard this week. THIS is 55…..kinda. This video is for my buddy E Sosa…….

ahhh, now we can begin,

Will Devante Reach Milestones?

FootballvsFSUParker3

I was talking to a buddy of mine earlier about Louisville football. I use to play, he used to play. We were talking about a conversation we had before the season when were talking about Devante Parker beating Ibn Greens Career TD record of 33. I said he would and my friend joked, not if he gets hurt. The day I found out that DP got hurt I called up said friend and cursed him out. Well, not cursed but I talked very loud. Calm down a little, I know he wasn’t to blame. Maybe a little. I digress. We were all sure Devante would break records and I still believe he will. I was talking to another friend tonight who brought up a great point.  Devante has the opportunity to reach 1000 yards receiving this year despite missing 7 games. 7 GAMES! He currently has 17 catches for 346 yards or an average of 173 a game. He needs 654 yards or an average of 163.5 yards per game. It sounds outlandish but if anyone can do it, its Devante AKA Spiderman. So my first question, will Devante Parker break Ibn Greens career TD record of 33? Devante has 28:

 

 

Next Question:

 

I’m interested in seeing what you guys think. Feel free to comment if you want to elaborate. whether he breaks these records or not he will still be one of the most revered Wide Receivers we have ever had. Good luck to the guys Saturday #BeatBostonCollege

Future UL/ND Football Dates Announced

 

Today Notre Dame announced its future scheduling concerning ACC opponents through 2025. It was revealed that even though we were expecting a 2017 visit to Papa Johns, that we will not host the Irish until 2019 in the opening game of the season. That makes up for it a little. It was also announced that we will head back to South Bend in 2020 and the Irish will head back to the oven in 2023. That sounds so far away but sadly it isn’t. The first meeting with the Irish however is this season in South Bend on the 22nd of November. Glad to hear we will keep them in a regular rotation.

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.
