Cardinal Catch-Up: Alhaji Mohammed

 

(via Alhaji Mohammed)

(via Alhaji Mohammed)

 

One thing that I love in the local sports scene right now is how myself and Marques Maybin are keeping in touch with former Cards. Marques has his throwback Thursday on the Deener show on ESPN 93.9 FM & I talk with the guys from all sports on LiveWith55 on Wednesday nights at blogtalkradio.com/csz. Today is a very welcome slow news day for CardNation.

I was talking this morning to Alhaji Mohammed. It’s no secret if you follow Mo is that he is a very charitable individual. He has always been humble and kind and willing to give back to the community. Of course I must preface this with the fact he is my friend. However he is one of the best people I have ever met. I met him back in 2004 when I went to a summer league game in the barber shop league down at St Stevens. He didn’t know me but we sat there and talked hoops while I watching my young bull Terrance Farley play in the league.

TweetCap CSZ Question Of The Day

93.9 The Ville

First off I would like to begin by saying one thing. I am not sure if @ULHotHot has the term TweetCap trademarked. If so, I apologize but only a little. Glad to get that off of my chest. All jokes aside my guy from the freezing cold tundra from the Dakotas (I think) had or stole a great idea that I will borrow or thief from him today. On the CardinalSportsZone show this morning on ESPN 93.9 The Ville, we had what we thought was a decent question that get a few answers. It was way more than a few. I bring to you the results of the question of the day: What are your best/worst moments from UofL Athletics in 2015? Here are your responses:

Louisville Volleyball Surges!

Louisville Volleyball
Current Record
Overall 21-5
Pct .808
Conf 15-1
Pct .938
Streak W5
Home 11-2
Away 8-3
Neutral 2-0
The University of Louisville Volleyball team is surging after a slow start that included a 2-3 start with losses against 3 top 25 teams. They also went against UL vs Auburn in Football versus Wisconsin and Minnesota in the ACC/Big 10 challenge right here at the YUM! They then went on winning streaks of 4,10 & are currently on a 5 game winning streak.
Their 5 losses came to #18 Illinois (3-0), #3 Minnesota (3-2), #10 Wisconsin (3-1), #19 uk (3-1) & #20 UNC (3-1). They are on a great roll heading towards the go home portion of their schedule which includes 2 at home this weekend vs Clemson and Georgia Tech. As an avid UofL Volleyball fan I am glad to see the girls overcome the early adversity and surge at the right time. Today Molly Sauer was named Freshman of the week in the ACC for the 2nd time and Tess Clark was named ACC Player of the Week also. The new polls came out today with UofL jumping up all the way to #17 from #22 in the USA Today/AVCA Coaches Poll! They jumped up to #11 in the HeroSPorts.com D1 Volleyball poll.

Talking Pitino: Pump the Brakes

Photo: Tim Haag/CardinalSportsZone.com

Photo: Tim Haag/CardinalSportsZone.com

Since the accusations all came spilling out, the mind of every Louisville faithful has been working in overdrive to untangle the web that Katina Powell (and the media) has so intricately woven. Reactions have varied from one end of the spectrum to the other – from those who refuse to believe anything like this could ever happen here to those who believe that the only way we move past the situation is to “clean house.” I took a stance against Sports Illustrated’s portrayal of the University of Louisville as a dangerous culture for women, but when it comes to the scandal itself, I’ve struggled to decide how I feel. I am going to go out on a limb and say this… I’m not naive enough to believe that it could never happen here. I’ve accepted that there is potential that these claims and accusations have some truth to them. The one thing that I can’t get on board with is the premature crucifixion of Rick Pitino.

Cards Are SUPER! (Info on this weekends Super Regionals)

(GOCards.com)

(GoCards.com)

This weekend the Cards did exactly what was expected of them. They took care of business. The Cards are heading to their fifth NCAA Super Regional in last nine years (’07, ’09, ’13, ’14, ’15). The Cards destroyed Michigan 13-4 behind a great day from Sophomore Josh Rogers. The Cards pitched very well the entire weekend. Funkhouser got out of his funk, McKay was golden and the bullpen was solid with good efforts from Henzman, Harrington and Burdi to name a few. The unsung hero, Devin Hairston (not Hair-a-ston ESPN guys) won Most Outstanding Player for the Louisville Regional and McKay, Rogers, Hairston, Solak, Taylor all made the All-Regional team. The Cards have won 10 straight post-season games at Jim Patterson after yesterday. We will host perennial power-house Cal St Fullerton. We do not know what days and times we are playing but here is what we do know: (Spoiler alert: Still can’t bring guns or fireworks in. Was hoping they listened to my appeal)

Louisville lands 4 star QB Tylin Oden

247sports.com

247sports.com

Bobby Petrino received some good news today when 2016 4 star QB Tylin Oden (TN) chose Louisville. Oden picked the Cards over Mississippi State and WVU.

The 6’5 Oden is rated the #7 duel threat QB according to Rivals.com and gives Petrino his 10th commitment for the 2016 class. Oden has incredible arm strength and a lot of upside under the direction of Bobby Petrino. Look for Oden to most likely redshirt in his freshman season but the potential for playing time is there.

Look for the Cards to continue the pursuit of Jawon Pass but there is no doubt the staff is happy and are expecting big things from Oden.
