Opening statement

Well, it was fun to get started. I thought we got a lot done today. First and foremost, the players came out with good attitudes, and we worked hard. I think they worked to get better. I thought we did a good job as practice went on of improving. Obviously when you are just in helmets, it’s hard to know when you go offense versus defense exactly how everything works, and the defense is always ahead of the offense when the shoulder pads aren’t on. But it was fun to see us make some plays down the field, and the defense plays fast. That’s a really good defensive front, and they play fast. Overall, I was happy with the way the kids worked.

It is already that time of year again. Spring football begins today, and Bobby Petrino met with the media on Monday to talk about the state of the team. The Cards are in the Sweet 16 (men and women) and spring football is starting. This is a very fun time!

Opening statement

I’m excited to get started tomorrow. I’ve certainly been looking forward to this. It’s a new team. We have a lot of new working parts, so it will be a lot of fun to see how it all goes together, who wins competition for positions. The thing we always understand is that spring football is, number one, about our players getting better at their craft and working hard on their technique and fundamentals, working hard to become experts about what they do.

Bobby Petrino tweeted out some of the results from the football team’s testing numbers today. These are from the bench press, 40 yard dash, broad jump, and vertical. Reggie Bonnafon is fast and he can jump…just saying.

Also, we have a kicker/punter bench pressing 385 pounds. Check out the rest of the numbers and see what you think.

Report on Louisville’s Pro Day

The Louisville Cardinals had their football pro day on Wednesday inside the Trager Center, and there were representatives in attendance from all 32 NFL teams. There were three head coaches there: New England’s Bill Belichick, Pittsburgh’s Mike Tomlin, and Cincinnati’s Marvin Lewis. The cool thing about that to me is that they easily could have been somewhere else since both Alabama and Southern California also had their pro days on Wednesday. I am sure they sent team personnel to those also, but to have any head coaches here is a pretty big deal.

FINALLY!! (The Rock Voice) Ok maybe not that extreme, but we are excited to announce that will we now venture into the realm of the podcast! The Cardinal Sports Zone Podcast will debut this Monday, March 2nd at noon.

Justin, Jeremy, and myself are all avid sports talk listeners and enjoy all the shows from 93.9 The Ville to the podcast put on by our friends over at The Crunch Zone. Quite frankly, we just want to throw our two cents in. We also see the serious need for something “Louisville” to listen to in the mid day hours. (I mean I know CardNation how much we all enjoy KSR……………..yea me neither). We hope to solve both of these problems with this podcast.
