QB Tylin Oden decommits from Louisville

This isn’t a huge surprise, but 2016 QB Tylin Oden has decommitted from Louisville, according to 247 Sports. Oden did just give a couple of interviews where he said he was still a solid commit to Louisville and was looking forward to the competition, but you really can’t blame him for looking elsewhere. UofL will have six other quarterbacks on the roster in 2016 that will be competing for playing time.

This one is an interesting episode of “The Red Zone” as they have Will Gardner, Kyle Bolin, and Reggie Bonnafon all on set. I don’t remember there ever being a time where you could say there was a legit 5-man quarterback race, and I think that is what we will have this fall when you have these three plus Tyler Ferguson and Lamar Jackson. Should be fun!

Lamar Jackson beats Rajon Rondo in a sprint



For some reason, Rajon Rondo is running in the streets of Louisville. Freshman quarterback Lamar Jackson can be seen in this video beating Rondo in a sprint down the street. Rondo is 29 years old and has had ACL surgery in the last couple of years. Jackson is probably 18 or 19 years old.

So I don’t know what the big fuss/excitement is about here. But I do know that things are getting wild on UofL’s campus on a Monday night.

At the Governor’s Cup Luncheon on Wednesday, Bobby Petrino covered multiple topics when talking about the upcoming season. He also updated the health of Will Gardner and talked about incoming freshman Lamar Jackson. To this point, the quarterback battle has been a three-player race between Reggie Bonnafon, Kyle Bolin, and Tyler Ferguson.

Could Will Gardner get healthy enough to become a factor in the race? Is a true freshman (Jackson) ready to step in and compete for the job? Here is what he had to say about both players.

The 2014 football season may be over, but the recruiting season never seems to end. With National Signing Day coming up on February 4, the Cards are hosting a lot of big visitors on campus this weekend. Some are already committed to UofL, so the staff will do what they can to solidify those commitments. Some are committed to other schools and some are not yet committed anywhere.

The four recruiting sites used are ESPN, 247 Sports, Rivals, and Scout. As of right now, there will be 18 official visitors. Here is who will be on campus this weekend…

2015 Louisville QB commit has monster game!

Louisville is making it a priority to hang on to 2015 QB commit Lamar Jackson and last he he showed another reason why. Jackson scored the game winning TD in the final seconds to keep his Boynton Beach team’s undefeated streak alive. Jackson’s TD gave Beach a 63-58 win over Coconut Creek.

Jackson threw for 346 yards (2 TD) while gaining 146 yards (5 TD) on the ground. To put that in prospective Jackson accounted for 492 total yards and SEVEN TD’s……..let me say that again SEVEN TD’s. Bobby has some work to do but it will be great to see Jackson next season in a QB race that looks to be wide open.

55 (Season 2 Episode 1)



It is finally that time of year! No silly, not football season, it is time for my weekly episodic series I affectionately name 55. First off I want to send a HUGE Shoutout to Tim Haag and Birds Nest Graphics for designing the new and permanent logo for 55. You can follow Tim at @UofLBirdsNest. I decided a permanent logo would help establish a familiar brand. If you guys find the number 55 in weird places still feel free to send them to me as they will still be included somehow. Without further adieu…..

This week on 55……….

We talk the promised land, We catch you up on a ton of things that have happened since I’ve been gone. (Please no Kelly Clarkson jokes) and a lot of other things that may or may not be of importance to you. I will bank on the fact they WILL. No pun intended. We will go over tonight’s huge Blackout. (The one on the field) So here we go, here are the 55 most ridiculous things I have heard, had to debate, or just thought about this past week. This ………55.

4 Star QB commits to Louisville

Elite 4 Star QB Lamar Jackson (2015) announced via Twitter that he will be a Louisville Cardinal.

Jackson chose the Cards over offers from Auburn, Clemson, FSU, Ohio St., South Carolina, and Georgia. Rated as a duel threat QB Jackson passed for 1,740 yards and 25 TD’s while rushing for 1,401 yards and 16 TDs last season. Louisville assistant Lamar Thomas was the point man on landing Jackson.

Lamar Jackson has been a hot name on the recruiting trail as of late and plans on making an impression early. Jackson’s Coach told Steve Jones of the Courier Journal, “I don’t know what Louisville has as far as quarterbacks (returning in 2015),” the coach said. “All I can tell you is they better be real, real good. Because if not, you’re going to see a freshman quarterback.” Can’t wait to see this kid in PJCS! Follow Lamar Jackson on Twitter @Tito_LJackson
