55 (Episode 13)


55-13

This week…..on 55…..

We talk 2014 Football signing class, emoticons and emoji, The valiant effort of the Women’s Basketball team (Not Lady Cards, been trying to spread the word coach) to a surprise for the loyal readers of 55, and so much more. Here’s a little backstory on this week’s 55 pic. The above picture is a speed limit sign from the frigid snow engulfed areas of Northern Wisconsin. Their motto is drive under 55 and you may stay alive. I wish I was kidding, I am not at all. We are doing our next #CardFam Lunch this Sunday at noon at BW3′s on Dixie, all are welcome, just DM me and let me know for head count purposes. Well here we go. Once again, I share with you the 55 most ridiculous things I have heard, had to debate, or just thought about this past week. This …..is….55

1) I am starting a promotion for my loyal and wonderful supporters of the #55movement (Just made that up). Starting next Monday I will let you guys write a portion of 55. Just tweet me #First15 and I will let you write the first 15 lines of 55. It’s that simple. Shoutout to @TurtleBITW for getting my brain turning and coming up with this idea. Everyone will get to do it. I will randomize the order. That easy.

2)

dummy

3) I did NOT get the idea from this book

4) Speaking of

5) I posed a question on Twitter last night about whether or not dudes should send other dudes smiley faces or tongue sticking out faces or emojis or emoticons in general. I said RT for Yes and Fav for No. I had a few speak on it instead of following Twitter survey etiquette but here is the question and results.

6)

7) No RT and all favorites…

8)

haha

9) Haha indeed

10) I had a friend tell me I needed emoji for dummies….But “he” uses them and knew the name of the book….

11) >__<

12) Moving forward

13) Today Greg Brown, an NFL coaching veteran and former collegiate defensive coordinator, has joined the University of Louisville football’s coaching staff as the safeties coach and recruiting coordinator. Brown spent 15 years in the NFL before going to Alabama in 2013 as secondary coach under Nick Saban.

14) Kelsi Jones was named the inaugural AAC Player of the Week as UofL Softball started the season with a tough 3-2 record on the weekend. It doesn’t get any easier this weekend heading to Jacksonville with games against #17 Mizzou, #36 Notre Dame & #39 North Carolina. Good Luck girls!

15) On Sunday the Women’s Tennis team annihilated Conference foe Cincy 7-0 at home. The Cards are on a 3 match winning streak and will head to Wisconsin Friday.

Bobby Petrino discusses Class of 2014


Here is the full video from the press conference with Bobby Petrino talking about the players who signed with Louisville. This video is from WLKY-32.

McNeil was a Louisville commit until Charlie Strong left for Texas. He then opened up his recruitment, but the Cards never faded out of the picture, and they were able to get him back. He also held offers from Oklahoma, Michigan State, Nebraska, Virginia Tech, Wisconsin, N.C. St., Cincinnati, Kentucky, Indiana, Purdue, and many more. In the end, he chose the Cards over Oklahoma and Indiana.

Here is his highlight page. 

QB Tyler Ferguson transfers to Louisville from Penn State


Tyler Ferguson

Bobby Petrino has another quarterback to work with now that Tyler Ferguson is transferring from Penn State. Ferguson will sit out the 2014 season and have 2 seasons of eligibility left. He had 1 season of Junior College and 1 season at Penn State. Coming out of junior college, 247 sports had him rated as a 4-star quarterback.

Tyler Ferguson- Quarterback

6’4   225 lbs

Bakersfield, California

Scout.com says this about Ferguson: Ferguson has good size, although a little slight. Ferguson has good footwork and good athleticism and makes good decisions with the football, knowing when to tuck it and run and when to keep the play alive as a thrower. Good accuracy too.

Here are his plays from this past season’s Blue-White scrimmage at Penn State

Terry was committed to Georgia Southern, but once the offer came from Louisville, he flipped his commitment. He was being shown interest (but not offered yet) from Alabama, Florida, LSU, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, and Southern Miss. If this one ends up being a steal for Petrino, it is a HUGE one!

Charles Standberry signs NLI with the Cards!

Standberry visited UofL this past weekend and was committed to Ole Miss. By the end of the weekend, he had switched to Louisville. Watching his tape has to get you excited for this one!

Bonnafon was the first Louisville commit for the 2014 class, committing back on January 6, 2013. Throughout the coaching change, Bonnafon never showed any signs of leaving his hometown school. He also played wide receiver at Trinity his junior year and was a good one there, so we will see how Coach Petrino uses him. Bonnafon has always said that he was recruited as a quarterback.

Here are his senior year highlights.

Trumaine Washington signs NLI with the Cards!

Sharieff Rhaheed chooses the Cards!


Sharieff Rhaheed

Sharieff Rhaheed just chose to sign with Louisville over Arkansas, Missouri, and Michigan State.

This is a huge pickup for Bobby Petrino to begin National Signing Day. Rhaheed is a former LSU commit who has liked the Cards for quite a while. He really liked them when Charlie Strong was head coach, and that kind of cooled off after he left for Texas. The Cards kept recruiting Rhaheed and today it paid off in a big way. Great pickup!

Fairfield, Ohio

Burns has been committed since June 27, 2013 and brings a lot of size to the offensive line. After a couple of seasons with the program and getting in college football shape, look for Burns to find his way into the offensive line rotation for the Cards down the road in the ACC. That is typical for offensive linemen in college. Not many come in and play right away.

Michael Johnson signs NLI with the Cards!


Michael Johnson

Michael Johnson- Safety

6’3   185 lbs

Hialeah, Florida

At 6’3, that is very tall for a safety. Johnson also had offers from LSU and Nebraska along with others.

Here are highlights from his junior season.

Javonte Bagley signs NLI with the Cards!


Javonte Bagley

Javonte Bagley- Wide Receiver

Vero Beach, Florida

Rivals- 2*

ESPN- 2*

Bagley has only been playing football for 2 years, and at 6’3 he brings great size to the wide receiver position. If you watch his highlight video on the link below, I think you will see that Petrino found another gem with Bagley. He could end up being a steal.
