Friday evening updates on the Charlie Strong situation


Charlie Strong

My goal here is to make sure we do not post every single rumor that is out there, that is not what we are about. But it is also important to keep you posted on the things that we are hearing that are credible. So that is what we will do. Like I have said before, many people are not on social media or can not check it all day long, so people can’t keep up all the time. So here are some of the latest in this whole situation…

Louisville commits meeting up at the bowl game


uofl-miami-300x195

One of the reasons that this game is so big for Louisville is the location. To have a bowl game in Florida is awesome when you recruit that state so much. You can have recruits come watch your team in person without having to bring them up for an official visit. So it is like a bonus visit for those guys. Louisville will have a few commits from the class of 2014 in attendance, as well as a former commit who flipped to Miami.

Miami coach Al Golden previews Louisville

From HurricaneSports.com on 12/13/13:

Opening statement…
“We were on the road all week, and we’re excited to be out on the field tonight and again tomorrow for the last two open practices, and then we’ll great into our preparation for Louisville and the Russell Athletic Bowl. I missed an opportunity to visit since the bowl announcement, but clearly we’re grateful for the opportunity to go to the Russell Athletic Bowl, to play in Orlando, and let our kids experience the sites and attractions and the community in Orlando, and get a great opponent in Louisville. Our kids are excited, I think they’re grateful. They’ve been through a lot the past two years, and they have not been able to have this opportunity. I thought after we talked last weekend, that [the conversation] resonated in the way they practiced. Hopefully we’ll see that again here tonight and tomorrow. They’re practicing with a purpose, they’re excited, and clearly they have a really tough opponent coming up.”

Miami WR Herb Waters Doubtful for RAB


herb 3

 

 

The above tweet was sent from Susan Degnan a beat writer for the Miami Herald. Herb Waters has been one of Miami’s top WR this year racking up over 400 yards receiving and 5 touchdowns.

You may remember Waters name in recruiting as he had some second thoughts about his Miami commitment and took a long look at the Cards. Waters being out would be a blow to the Hurricanes offense so this will definitely be something to watch.

Miami Fans don’t like their Defenses Chances

Miami Hurricane fans are known for “Swag”. Well when it comes to their Defense they have anything but that. Looks like they expect Teddy to have the game of his life but Hey Miami fans so do we :) Enjoy this:

Miami video guy (they comin!) is at it again


So remember the Miami fan who said Miami was comin’ for Louisville? He reminded you a few times that they were comin’. Well, he is at it again. This one isn’t as entertaining. But just figured it would make you feel better about how you spend your time. Ski mask?

Click here to see his previous video. 

Fans respond: Which game would you rather the Cards win on December 28?


Russell Athletic BowlLouisville Kentucky

We threw out this question to see what the people thought, and the mixed responses made it worthwhile. If the Cards only win 1 game on December 28th, which would YOU rather see them win? The Battle for the Bluegrass against Kentucky? Or the Russell Athletic Bowl against Miami? Now of course, we would prefer for the Cards to go 2-0 that day, but this just makes for good discussion. First, here are the opinions from the members of CSZ, followed by the twitter responses from you, the fans. Enjoy!

Why I love our bowl matchup


uofl-miami-300x195

Well Cardnation…the stage is set for Orlando and the Russell Athletic Bowl Committee is eager to have the Cards visit. No, it’s not the prestigious BCS bowl we had hoped for our returning Sugar Bowl champs but let’s consider the following. Look at the enemy; UCF ruined our chances of heading back to a BCS and they’ll be heading to the west side of the country to face Baylor in the Fiesta Bowl.  Athlon Sports ranks the matchup with the Miami Hurricanes to be the 9th best ‘must see’ game of all 35 bowls. UCF’s bowl game ranks just one spot ahead of the Cards and I am convinced that’s primarily because of the BCS Fiesta name. But I want to congratulate UCF on their first BCS appearance. I don’t want to be ‘that critic’ towards the Knights like the Cards received last season when they were selected to play Florida.  Now that that’s over with…. Let’s move on to the good stuff.

Miami fan apparently doesn’t like Bridgewater


WARNING: EXPLICIT LANGUAGE!

When I first saw this, my first thought was it HAD to be posted. Then I heard the language and thought it shouldn’t. But since you have been warned (and it’s not the worst thing in the world) I just had to let you see it. I do apologize for wasting your time with this garbage, but it is kind of entertaining right?

Russell Athletics Bowl: Cards vs Canes


russell athletics

It has been made official and #CardNation has got their wish! On December 28th the Cards will play the Miami Hurricanes in the Russell Athletics Bowl. Kickoff is scheduled in Orlando’s Citrus Bowl for 6:45pm and will follow the annual Battle for the Bluegrass that will tip at 4:00pm.

The Canes will come in with a 9-3 record looking for their 10th win on the season. The Cards will bring in a 11-1 record for the 2nd time in school history and arguably one of the best Defenses to ever put on the Red and White.

Tickets and Packages are available at GoCards.com
