This makes the second time in a month that Pitino has been down to see Dozier making it clear he is the Cards guy. Dozier will be in Louisville for the FSU game on an official visit. A commitment from Dozier would solidify the best class Pitino has ever had at Louisville.

This week on 55………

We have new uni’s to talk about again for the second straight week, these as hated as last weeks were loved. We have a triumphs and let downs. We will talk about Teddys first start in the NFL. The victory over Wake and the smothering defense. The new Louisville Slugger Gerod Holliman and much more. So sit down, buckle up and enjoy the ride. These are the 55 most intriguing,ridiculous or down right best or worst things I have heard this week. This…is….55

2) Well there’s an image for you and an overall description for what our defense did on Saturday. We knocked out Wake. giving up -22 yards rushing to go along with 8 sacks and 4 INT’s, our defense kept us in the game and won the game as far as I am concerned. Holliman, Burgess and Rankins recorded Interceptions. Lozo got 3 of the 8 sacks. On offense the rookie QB looked shaky at times but when he started feeding the beast Brandon Radcliff (130 yds 2 TD) , he seemed to run the offense more fluently. Moving forward we have to take care of the ball better. 4 fumbles vs Wake is unacceptable but I think that will improve with reps for Reggie. Also stop the penalties now please….signed all of Football. The Cards take on Syracuse at the Carrier Dome Friday night.

4) They started calling Calvin Pryor that this pre season, maybe it will catch on for Gerod. Once only known for his earth shattering hit, Holliman has come full circle. With his 6th INT of the season Saturday he is currently #1 in the country and just 4 away from tying UofL’s single season record. Anthony Floyd had 10 in one season and 18 overall which is also a record.

 

5) Teddy Bridgewater got his first NFL start yesterday…..

Recruiting is a crazy thing. Just a couple of weeks ago, the Cards had a commitment from 5-star Antonio Blakeney and had backed off of 6’6 combo guard Perry Dozier. You know the story: Blakeney decommits, and the Cards try to get back in the mix for Dozier. Rick Pitino and Kenny Johnson spent Wednesday evening giving Dozier an in home visit, and it certainly paid off. Dozier had 4 official visits lined up and had 1 more opening, and he will use that for a trip to UofL’s campus.

Rick Pitino Will Visit P.J. Dozier Next Week

Perry Dozier

It looks like P.J. Dozier is definitely back in the mix to get the last spot in the 2015 class that Antonio Blakeney had for a solid 11 days. We knew that the Cards would be interested in him again, but would he listen to them? Well that question has been answered, and it’s yes. Next Wednesday, Rick Pitino will make the trip to South Carolina to have an in-home visit with Dozier and his family, Steve Jones of the Courier-Journal writes.

The in-home visit will determine if Louisville gets one of Dozier’s five official visits in the next few weeks. Right now, four of them are already set: Michigan (Sept. 26), North Carolina (Oct. 3), Georgetown (Oct. 17), and South Carolina (Oct. 24).
