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…..
4) Read my experience from my first ACC game here
It’s only July, but with the Cards officially in the ACC now, that opening football game against Miami on September 1 feels like it’s right around the corner. Because of that, it seemed like a good time to update you on the wide receiver record books at UofL. Senior DeVante Parker has a chance to put his name at or near the top of a lot of lists for the Cards this season. These are only the career lists, but of course he can make his way onto season-leading lists as the season goes on. Let’s see where he stands right now entering the 2014 season.

No matter who wins in this weekend’s NFL playoffs and makes it to the Super Bowl and wins that, the Louisville Cardinals will have a player that gets a Super Bowl ring this year. Why? Because of the final four teams remaining, there is a former Card on each team! Here is the rundown of who plays on which team…
Here is how the former Cards performed in the NFL this week. Keep in mind that these are just the skill players. Bilal Powell had a great performance for the New York Jets and Josh Bellamy made his NFL debut with the Kansas City Chiefs!

Here is how the former Cards did in Week 2 of this NFL season…
Here are some stats from former UofL Cardinals in the NFL in week 1!
The Countdown to Kickoff is now at 10 days! Here is former UofL Wide Receiver Arnold Jackson!
Arnold Jackson: (1996-2000)
Career Stats: 44 games played, 300 receptions, 3,670 yards (12.2 avg), 31 TDs, Long of 86 yards
Jackson holds the record at UofL for most receiving yards with his 3,670 yards. The next closest is Harry Douglas, and he isn’t that close with 2,924 yards! Arnold Jackson was an explosive player, and also a great punt returner. Anytime he touched the ball, there was excitement because the fans knew a TD was very possible!
He also holds the UofL record for most receptions with 300. The next closest is Ibn Green with 217!
