RICHARD HAMM/MORRIS NEWS SERVICE

According to Mike Hughes, former Georgia Bulldog safety Josh Harvey-Clemons plans to attend the University of Louisville. Woodrow Clemons, the grandfather of Josh Harvey-Clemons, told InsideTheVille.com on Wednesday night that his grandson plans to transfer to Louisville. Clemons was dismissed from Georgia in February of this year for a violation of team rules. This cbssports.com article says:

Harvey-Clemons already missed the Bulldogs’ Gator Bowl loss to Nebraska and faced a three-game suspension entering the 2014 season after reportedly violating the university’s marijuana-use policy for a second time. Harvey-Clemons was also suspended for the Bulldogs’ season-opening loss against Clemson after telling police that he had smoked marijuana in a dorm room.

In the 2013 season, Clemons recorded 66 tackles and 1 interception and recovered 3 fumbles (georgiadogs.com). He is listed at 6’5 and 212 pounds and was a 5-star prospect out of high school.

ESPN’s Andrea Adelson talks Louisville defense

From ESPN.com’s Andrea Adelson, who talks about the different defense that Louisville will play this season.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — There are holes to fill across the Louisville defense, one that quietly ranked as one of the best units in America a year ago.

But that is not the only reason this group is undergoing an entire overhaul during the spring. Defensive coordinator Todd Grantham has changed the base defense to a 3-4 and started shifting players around to positions better suited for them. The lone returning starting lineman from a year ago, Lorenzo Mauldin, will move to outside linebacker, filling a hybrid rush end role that will better utilize his athleticism.

Sheldon Rankins, a backup defensive tackle the last two seasons, has emerged as a leader at end but can play nose guard, too.

“He’s been dominant,” Grantham said.

Plenty more moves have been made: B.J. Dubose, who has played end and tackle, has found a home at end this spring; Redshirt freshman James Hearns has moved from linebacker to end; redshirt freshman Chucky Williams is leading the charge to start at one safety spot after starting his career at cornerback.

Football staff announced at UCF game (Video)


At halftime of the basketball game against UCF, the football team was brought out and the new coaching staff was announced. The ovations were great, and it doesn’t hurt that the Cards had some recruits in the house to witness it as well.

Video was posted on CardinalSports.com by Steve Ludden and Howie Lindsey.

Petrino’s staff is complete!


Bobby Petrino

One of the most important things when a new coach is brought in is who he will bring with him. The coaching staff he hires is a huge part of what kind of success that will hopefully follow. Bobby Petrino seems to have put together a great staff here at the University of Louisville. While we were all pretty attached to the former staff, this one seems  to be solid as well.

PRESS RELEASE

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.”

This week…..on 55…..

Once again I figured on having a pretty uneventful week. Name a new coach, get our recruits lined up and on board with the new staff and carry on. Boy was I wrong. In this weeks 55 I have so much info I may not be able to put a lot of pictures in, or joke on Shawn during the monologue. (Sorry Pal) From Old friends to new ones and commitments given and taken away, this has been quite the week. So sit down and buckle up because this week’s episode is sure to take you on an emotional roller-coaster of a ride.

So 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

5) Charlie Strong
