Preston Brown is NFL’s 4th Leading Tackler Entering Week 5



Former Louisville Cardinal Preston Brown is making his presence felt in the NFL with the Buffalo Bills so far this season. The rookie linebacker was 4th in tackles coming into week 5 in the NFL. Currently, he ranks 6th in tackles, but that is because Green Bay and Minnesota played on Thursday night. Two Packers are now ahead of Brown. Mike Rodak of ESPN.com posted an article today about Brown. Here is some of that.

Summer Thoughts

CSZLogoSkyline white 2


So this has been one interesting summer. I have been swamped with work (a good thing) and we are now in the ACC! I am so excited about that part. The purgatory known as the AAC is over and now it is on to the next chapter of our greatness….the A-C-C

Louisville ACC

It’s so pretty….

Well let’s go over some things that have happened this summer. Teddy signed with the Vikings, Pryor with the Jets, Smith with the Eagles, Philon with the Steelers, Copeland with the Jags and Perry with the Bears. A pretty eventful summer for the former football Cards. We are all so very proud.

The Baseball team also had a crazy amount of signees to MLB teams. We definitely lost a ton of talent

Congrats to those guys as well…..

Vikings Head Coach: If Teddy is the best QB, he will play

The following article is from CBSsports.com. Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer says that if Teddy Bridgewater is the best quarterback, he will play. They are hoping that is the case, and so are we!

Teddy Bridgewater is the Vikings‘ latest franchise quarterback, a first-round pick taken three years after the team pegged Christian Ponder as that guy. Ponder will almost certainly be a free agent after the 2015 season, and it’s reasonable to think that, barring injuries, he may have already taken his last snap in a Vikings uniform.

Matt Cassel is the other veteran quarterback on the roster, and he played better than Ponder last season. But there’s a reason the team traded back into the first round to grab Bridgewater: They need immediate help at the position. That said, first-year coach Mike Zimmer won’t throw Bridgewater into the starting lineup until he’s proven he’s ready.

“Teddy will play when we feel like he’s ready, if he’s the best guy, which we hope that he will be,” Zimmer said, via StarTribune.com. “We always want to have competition.”

Meet New U of L Assistant Coach & DC: Todd Grantham



LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Widely regarded as one of the best defensive coordinators in the country, Todd Grantham was tabbed by University of Louisville head football coach Bobby Petrino to become the school’s defensive coordinator and safeties coach on Thursday.

Todd comes to Louisville after four seasons as Georgia’s defensive coordinator, including two seasons as the associate head coach. During his time with Georgia, the Bulldogs advanced to four-consecutive bowl games and compiled a 36-18-1 record with Grantham at the helm of the defense.

“To get a coach like Todd Grantham on our staff says a lot about our program,” Petrino said. “I’ve had the opportunity to compete against Todd’s defenses over the years and have been very impressed with his scheme and how hard his players compete. Todd will be a great addition to lead our defense.”
