So there are the current projections which all of them have us going to Orlando for the Florida Citrus Bowl. However I believe it will be UCF playing in their home city and Louisville in the BCS for a second straight year. I project that we will play in the Sugar Bowl for the second straight season vs Mizzou, A&M or Auburn.
Go Cards!

My message to the fans: Don’t forget to enjoy this season!

Football 2

Now that we have reached the halfway point of our football season, I feel like it is a good time to write this.

But for the most part I am just going to say what comes to mind, and we will see what happens. Hopefully by the end of it, I have gotten some kind of point across. So let’s go…

Bowl Projection has Louisville back in NOLA

Sugar Bowl

Jerry Palm from cbssports.com released his Bowl Projections for the upcoming 2013 season. He believes we will see Louisville vs Georgia in the Sugar Bowl. Here is what he had to say.

MATCHUP ANALYSIS

With Alabama in the BCS Championship Game, the Sugar Bowl takes Georgia as the replacement selection. With the second at-large pick, it takes American Athletic Conference champion Louisville.

I don’t know about you. But if we can’t make our way into the National Championship game, which will be very hard to do, I am just fine with taking another trip to New Orleans!

Here are the rest of his bowl projections.

The Nation is talking about Louisville

images (2)

By: Steven Rummage

The University Louisville is for sure the hot name around the nation right now and for very good reason. Pre-Season ranked football, Heisman Candidates  Number 1 ranked Basketball and possible POY. Lets take a look around the country:

The Number 1 ranked Louisville basketball team looks unstoppable, but Jeff Goodman says Scary thing is they haven’t even tapped into their full potential.

Raise your hand if you wanted Russ to transfer……. 2 years later he is #4 on the POY Race

Who should have been #1 Duke or Louisville?? CBS broke down the numbers.

One of the Nations Elite wing players Shaqquan Aaron will visit the Ville in the coming weeks

Its that time of year again, Bracketology’s are back, While all have the Cards a #1 Seed some are more desirable draws than others ESPN SI

After going 11-2 and winning the Sugar Bowl the Cards look to start the season somewhere around the top 12, where does CBS have them?

UofL CB Terrell Floyd was named to the ESPN All-Bowl Team

In case you forgot the Cards are ranked #1 :)
