Video Of Top Ranked Asia Durr’s Commitment To Louisville

ulwbb

Here is the video of Asia’s commitment to the University of Louisville for those of us that did not get to watch it live. It does take a minute or so to load so be patient. Today was a historical day for Jeff Walz and U of L women’s basketball. Asia’s commitment gives us the #1 ranked recruiting class in 2015 for the moment. We have more targets out there that could solidify the #1 ranking. Enjoy!

Bowl Projections (Week 1)

FootballvsMiamiParker

It is early in the season but apparently not too early to talk Bowl projections. Where the Cards end up may have a lot to do with how quick and well this young man above this heals. With him a position in the playoff is possible with an undefeated season, without him a BCS bowl is still attainable. Either would be great finishes. One thing that is for sure is that a few sites have come out with their projections, here they are.

ESPN:

College Football Playoff: Florida State
Orange Bowl : Louisville
Russell Athletic Bowl: Virginia Tech
Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl: Clemson
Belk Bowl: North Carolina
Hyundai Sun Bowl: Pitt

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.

Black Out! (Dress Accordingly)

Monday marks a yearly occasion for us Louisville fans, a color coordinated event. Actually sometimes with Basketball included, we get to do it several times a year. Red-Outs, White-Outs…Black-Outs, It doesn’t which one it is, we don’t all comply. Not enough notice, don’t have anything that color for the weather that day…etc. etc. The reasons roll on. Well have no fear. I bring you viable options for Monday’s Black-out vs the University of Miami at PJCS and I would like to share them with you so we can get close to UL/WVU football (The most successful IMO) standards as far as uniformity is considered. I ran across these the other day at Cardinal Authentic (@CardsAuthentic)

After getting an advanced listen of the song I am happy to say he has not let us down. #CardTime is available on iTunes now (iTunes Link: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/card-time/id913255715?i=913255854). Go and pick it up and support our Louisville talent and anthem writer. Here’s some info about BSIMM that you may not know:

Just when you thought the WNBA couldn’t lose any more credibility they released the 2014 All-Rookie Team today:

2014 WNBA ALL-ROOKIE TEAM

Player Team Position Votes
Chiney Ogwumike Connecticut Sun Forward 11
Odyssey Sims Tulsa Shock Guard 11
Kayla McBride San Antonio Stars Guard/Forward 11
Bria Hartley Washington Mystics Guard 9
Alyssa Thomas Connecticut Sun Forward 7

Yep, there is one glaring omission….Showtime Shoni Schimmel. (say that 3 times real fast) She set the WNBA on fire this season with her razzle dazzle passes and clutch shooting. I believe she will be on the first team all WNBA in no time if she improves and keeps up the good work. We were extremely proud of you this year Shoni! Go Cards!

ACC Technology>AAC

Well guys, we aren’t in Kansas anymore. Oh that’s right…we were in Houston, Central Florida and Philly. Sorry guys. With a greater league comes greater interaction. The ACC has impressed me with two of their releases so far (2-2) in @TheACCDN and The ACC Football Challenge App. It’s available on all platforms for just .99 and it allows interactions in game form that could lead you to a trip to the 2014 ACC title game. You can even play as the newly joined Louisville Cardinals and kick your way to Charlotte. Sounds cool to me. The ACC Digital Network is also available on all platforms and takes you behind the scenes of your favorite team in the ACC and lets you watch past games and other fun stuff. Below is the Press Release and the link for the App!

Our guy Nick Stover is at it again. Using the latest technology he can find, he brings us a fly-by (yes you read that correctly) of the brand new Dr. Mark and Cindy Lynn Soccer Stadium using views from Google Glass and aerial drones. Hope you enjoy!

We hope to see everyone there for the University of Louisville women’s soccer home opener against Ole Miss on Aug. 29 at 5:30 p.m followed at 8pm by the men’s match against Maryland. The matches are the first events in the opening of Dr. Mark and Cindy Lynn Stadium.

ESPN Contributor Makes FEARLESS Predictions

David Hale of ESPN.com was asked to make some fearless predictions this week. He came up with his top 10 for the ACC. To many outside of Louisville, Will Gardner will be a shock and an absolute treat to watch. His full story can be seen here. Here’s my fearless prediction for Will, 3500 yards passing. It would put him in 6th place all-time for a single season right behind my old teammate Chris Redman’s Sr campaign of 3,647. That’s about as fearless as I can get this season. It also may be due to the fact we are so close to football I can taste it and am being really generous. On that note Dom Brown will rush for 2000 yards and Lozo will have 21 sacks. OK…I have calmed down a little but I will stick with my Gardner prediction. Gardner will be magnificent this year. I Can’t wait to utter the words…The Gardner did it!

Go Cards!

Taquan Dean: Hungry And Driven

Here we are for the final installment of Hungry and Driven….for now. First things first. (Don’t Iggy me) Most of you know I have a column I do during peak sports season called 55. That column will be making its debut right before the UL/Miami football game Monday night September 1st. No set time as of now but starting the next week it will be back to its usual time, 7:55. We will be more interactive, more fun and bring you more info than ever. Also plan on having a few guest writers of 55 during the season. Stay tuned. Also here is a sneak peek at the brand new logo for 55 designed by CSZ’s good friend Tim of @UofLBirdsNest. If you aren’t following him on Twitter, do so now. He is awesome.
