This week…..on 55…..
55 is not a state of mind or a way to live life your life…yet. It is a place to state facts and shoot down gripes. I have logged a ton of hours in this week at the factory. (I don’t really work in a….nevermind) Once again I share with you the 55 most ridiculous things I have heard, had to debate, or just thought about this past week. Hope you enjoy. Or not…it’s cool.
1) The football team had a bye week, we did not lose however did not win
2) we still dropped in the poll 2 spots
3) We dropped 2 spots after beating USF by 31
4) UCF barely defeated USF this past week and jumped 2 spots
5) I despise UCF
6) The Men’s Basketball team looked to get back on track by defeating previously undefeated Southern Miss 69-38
7) Yes we held a grown mans team to 38 points for an entire game
8) We had 34 at halftime
9) Thx Kev. The Volleyball Cards have been on a roll as well going 18-0 in conference. Despite this the Cards are not even receiving votes in the AVCA Poll.
10) Four of their seven losses were to the number 3,11,13 & 17th ranked teams in the country early on in the season.
Last week the Cards had a tough Saturday night game against the mighty Houston Cougars. This week the arch-rival Memphis Tigers. Louisville leads the overall series 23-19. UL’s record vs Memphis at home is 12-9 with the Cards winning 9 out of the last 10 at home since 1986. These two teams last met in 2010 with the Cards winning 56-0. The winning margin at home during the 10 game streak other than that game was only 95. Since 2000 the Cards are 3-0 at home winning by an average of 34.3 ppg. Drastic compared to the 5-0 run in the 90′s which we won by 13 combined points. The line for tomorrow is 23.5 with the over/under is at under 43.5. Memphis has only defeated us 3 times overall in the past 18 attempts dating back to 1988. Here is what CSZ thinks the final score will be and how Teddy Bridgewater will fair against Memphis:
Daryl (@Darylfoust4): 399 3 TD 27-3 UL win
Jeremy (@Jeremy_CSZ): 378 yards 4 TD 41-3 UL win
Justin (@JRVille25): 275 yards 3 TD 35-13 UL win
Steve (@Stiz_CSZ): 420 yards 4 TD 48-7 UL win
P.S. Here is the official intro video for this year
Last week the Cards had a bye week and after a grueling time for us fans since our last game @ USF, tonight we get UCONN. The overall series is tied 2-2. UL average points vs UCONN away is 26.5 and UCONN is averaging 24.75 in this series at home. The line for tonight is 28 with the over/under is at under 49.5. Here is what CSZ thinks the final score will be and how Heisman hopeful Teddy Bridgewater will fair against UCONN:
Daryl (@Darylfoust4): 378 yards 4 TD 39-10 UL win
Jeremy (@Jeremy_CSZ): 437 yards 4 TD 55-3 UL win
Justin (@JRVille25): 323 yards 3 TD 38-0 UL win
Steve (@Stiz_CSZ): 410 yards 4 TD 48-7 UL win
P.S. This is how excited I was earlier since we hadn’t played forever:
Last week the Cards fell to UCF and then in the polls. This week the Cards get the tough task of traveling to Tampa to take on USF. If you look at the stats this should be a cake walk for Louisville. However the Cards have troubles competing in Tampa despite ranking or record going an astonishing 1-4 in Tampa with the Cards taking the last two to tie the overall series up at 5-5. The current line is Louisville by 21 and an over/under of Under 50 which comes out to a final score of UL-35 USF-14. USF’s Kicker has scored 37 points this year with the rest of the offense scoring 34 and defense 24. ouch. Here is what CSZ thinks the final score will be and how Heisman hopeful Teddy Bridgewater will fair against USF:
Daryl (@Darylfoust4): 305 yards, TD. Score: 37-6
Jeremy (@Jeremy_CSZ): 320 yards, 3 TD. Score 42-6
Justin (@JRVille25): 280 yards, 3 TD. Score 34-3
Steve (@Stiz_CSZ) : 285 yards, 2 TD. Score 38-3
This week we leave you with something that there are just no words for……enjoy!
CSZ Forecast: Rutgers
Tonight is without a shadow of a doubt the biggest game on our schedule. Rutgers is the highest ranked team we will play in the regular season and have beaten Arkansas and lost in OT to ranked Fresno State. They may have the best defense we will see this season and do have the best return game we will see this season led by Janarion Grant. The current spread ranges from 16.5-19.5 and the over/under is at under 55. Here is what CSZ thinks the final score will be and how Heisman hopeful Teddy Bridgewater will fair against the Scarlet Knights:
Daryl: 31-21 UL, Teddy will go for 316 yards and 3 TD
Jeremy: 48-13 UL, Teddy throws for 340 and 3 TD
Justin: 49-17 UL, Teddy passes for 333 yards and 4 TD’s
Steve: 52-24 UL, Teddy goes 360 & 4 TD
This week is the week we all have been waiting for……College Football. The feeling in the air, the sound of the big hits and the adrenaline rush from big plays are all things I have been anticipating since I left New Orleans. This week I sat down and thought to myself, do people want to see the same stories on all the blogs or do they want to see something different, their story? I started to email, text and DM some of the most knowledgeable members of CardNation I know. One by one they answered back and it made for some really good stories. Today I thought I would try something different for the series but yet the same really. People forget at times that some of the biggest fans of the University of Louisville are us, the members of CSZ. So to cap off the series we will bring you the thoughts Justin ( @JRVille25 ), Steve ( @Stiz_CSZ ), Paige ( @PaigeS_502 ), Daryl ( @Darylfoust4 ) and myself ( @Jeremy_CSZ ). We hope you have enjoyed this series as much as we have.
Thanks CardNation & Enjoy!
One thing that I try to do with the members of CardNation is stay interactive. I follow everyone back on Twitter, answer every question and talk to everyone no matter what time of the day I get hit with a random DM on twitter. I feel like that’s important, and a part of what sets us apart from a majority of the other sites out there. Today I started reading your thoughts about it being game week and what I wanted to do this week was so simple, get your thoughts. So I DM’d several people that I converse with the most and asked for their thoughts about the game this week and what their favorite things about gameday was. I hope you guys enjoy reading what everyone thought. I will be releasing these every day this week so DM me if you want to be a part of it.
