Joe Namath because…well why not?
There has been a lot going on in Louisville sports lately, highlighted by football commitments every 5 minutes (seems like it). So I figured I would get you all caught up here on what has been going on. Consider this your one-stop shop for recent Louisville news. But come back and check out the site later if you want to of course. There will be a lot of links in this post so if you haven’t been able to keep up with news lately, it is all laid out for you.
*National Signing Day is this Wednesday February 5. We will keep you updated on what players become official members of the Louisville football team. Always an exciting day. The day of the fax machine!
*Some people started to get worried about this year’s football recruiting class. Some of us laughed at those people, and for good reason. Petrino and his staff have been getting commitments left and right lately, and here they are (as of now)…
This week…..on 55…..
Additions, Subtractions, Super Bowl & JC Penneys? Yeah I try to cover it all. From people going crazy on me to signing day to the omission of a certain someone, it’s here. A powerful and swift campaign swept twitter last Tuesday and you know what? It worked. 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

Bobby Petrino and his staff are finishing off this recruiting season in great fashion. According to Ryan Bartow and Mike Hughes of InsideTheVille.com, the latest commitment comes from 3-star JUCO offensive tackle Quincy McKinney, who is listed at 6’4 and 310 lbs. He currently attends Hutchinson Community College in Hutchinson, Kansas. He is originally from Columbus, Georgia. McKinney chose the Cards over N.C. State and East Carolina. He also had offers from Kansas State and Arizona State.
McKinney joins Danny Burns, Kelby Johnson, and Lukayus McNeil as offensive linemen commits. Since Friday night, the Cards have gotten commitments from Lukayus McNeil, Trumaine Washington, Charles Standberry, and now Quincy McKinney. Pretty nice weekend.
