From the Plains: A look at Auburn’s Defense

As you may or may not know, I lived in Auburn, Alabama from 2008-2012 and still have some friends down that way. A friend of mine that I still keep in touch with is Scott Bagwell, one of the biggest Auburn fans I know, who is also a good writer. He is very knowledgeable and won’t just be an Auburn homer. He will tell it like it is, which is what we want. He decided to help me (and all of you Louisville fans) out by writing a post about both the offense and the defense of Auburn. This post will focus on the defensive side of the ball. If you missed the one on the offense, here you go.

Former Louisville Cardinals wide receiver Tiger Jones is the rightful owner of the best touchdown celebration of all time. If you never watched WWE (or WWF) before, this video may mean nothing to you. If you watched it during the “attitude” era when it was at its peak like I did, this video may make you giddy, and that is perfectly fine.

Lyndell Wilson is considered to be the top outside linebacker in the country according to ESPN and 247 Sports. Rivals has him as the third best. Scout has him has the top inside linebacker in the country. Either way you look at it, Wilson is one of the top recruits in the nation, and he was on UofL’s campus this weekend with some teammates from Carver High School in Montgomery, Alabama. I think it is safe to say that Wilson enjoyed his time at UofL…

Lyndell Wilson, the top linebacker in the country, will be visiting the Cards with a couple of his teammates. Wilson is an outside linebacker from Montgomery, Alabama (Carver High School).

Louisville tight end Charles Standberry also attended Carver High School, and that is who Wilson references in this tweet. How much can Standberry help?

Transcript: Bobby Petrino ACC Media Day Press Conference

Question: You open up conference play with a Clemson team that’s picked pre-season favorite in the ACC. What is your outlook on that?

PETRINO: It’s a great conference opener for us. Obviously we need to play our opening game in Atlanta versus Auburn first, then a very good Houston team comes to Louisville and plays us on Saturday, then Clemson is a Thursday night game, a short turnaround, something that is going to challenge our players to get ready for. We have to have a good plan for it. We’ve been working hard, getting ready for that game already. They’re a very good football team with an exciting quarterback. It’s a challenge for us but we’re looking forward to it. I know it’s going to be a great game to have at the University of Louisville, Papa John’s Stadium. That’s a fun thing being in the ACC, the teams we get to bring in on a year-to-year basis at Papa John’s.

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.

Jawon Pass committed to Louisville on Thursday, and that may have started a trend that will roll on through this weekend. On Friday, it was linebacker T.J. Brunson, a 3-star player from Columbia, South Carolina. Brunson is in town for Louisville’s Friday Night Lights football camp, along with plenty of other prospects that the Cards are looking at.

Brunson plays inside linebacker and is listed at 6’0 and 220 lbs. He also had offers from South Carolina and NC State, among other smaller schools in the area.

“This one was different” A perspective of Jawon Pass choosing Louisville

Card Nation has been here before, hopes of football glory hinged on a high school football star picking up the hat with the “L” or the Cardinal bird on it and placing it on his head.

Sometimes it went our way, and other times the young man just made the wrong choice. ;)

Jawon “Passes” on Alabama and Auburn; Picks Louisville

Full disclosure: that title was sort of Steve’s idea…

Big-time quarterback recruit Jawon Pass has made his decision, and that is to commit to the Louisville Cardinals. In the end, he chose Louisville over Auburn and a strong, late push from Alabama. I repeat: Louisville beat out Auburn and Alabama for a football recruit from Columbus, Georgia. Weird, huh?
