This week on 55…..

We close in on the season finale of 55. We talk about Elite 8’s, departures and Villains. The men’s Tennis team jumps into the top 25. JamFest and McDonald’s All-American games are this week. What will I do this summer? Find out today! Steve needed a hug on the Podcast today and me and Justin tried our best to console him. Rebuild or Reload? Hmm. All of this and more……….

Without further adieu, here are the most ridiculous, outlandish, interesting or just downright obnoxious things I have heard this week. THIS is 55…..

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…..

CWS Title Not In The Cards For Louisville, Fall 4-1 to Texas

 

louisvillebaseball3

Errors were too much for Louisville today as the Cards lose 4-1 and are eliminated from the College World Series. The Cards matched a season high 4 errors during the game including one by the normally unshakable Nick Burdi. It may as well been called NOmaha because the Cards just couldn’t get a lot going while they were there. Hats off to Texas for stealing our football coach this season then taking our soul in the CWS. Louisville finished the season with 50 wins and made it to their 3rd CWS (07,13,14)  since Dan McDonnells inaugural season in 2007. Still a great season for the Cards and with the majority of the team coming back for our first season in the ACC, it’s gonna be a blast. Thanks to @UofLBaseball for another great season.

Go Cards!

Cards Are Super! Beat Cats 4-1

PRESS RELEASE

CardsTV Video: Postgame News Conference with Dan McDonnell | Postgame News Conference with Louisville Players

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Matched against long-time rival Kentucky for the first time outside the regular season, the top-seeded Louisville baseball team continued its trend of postseason success with a 4-1 win in Sunday night’s NCAA Regional title game at Jim Patterson Stadium.

In a game delayed nearly four hours due to lightning and rain, the Cardinals (48-15) plated three runs in a pivotal seventh inning to win its fourth NCAA Regional in the last eight years under the direction of head coach Dan McDonnell. With the victory, Louisville will host an NCAA Super Regional for the second time in school history when the winner of the Alabama-Kennesaw State matchup in Monday’s finale at the Tallahassee Regional (noon ET) visits Jim Patterson Stadium. The best-of-three series will begin either Friday or Saturday with the complete schedule to be released by the NCAA on Tuesday.

Regional Championship Today!

Baseball

Today at approx. 4pm on ESPNU, the baseball Cards will take the field against either Kansas or Uk. The Cards defeated Kansas 6-3 in the regional game yesterday and by doing so earn a berth to the finals. Kentucky however has had the Cards number this season winning 8-3 in Lexington and beating the Cards at home 4-2. I believe Kansas will get it going late and win. The Cards will not be facing either teams ace as they were both used yesterday. If the winner of KU/uk defeats the Cards tonight, there will be a final game tomorrow night at 7 at Jim Patterson Stadium. Tickets are cheap so go fill up this magnificent ballpark.

Baseball 4

For the Cards to defeat Kansas tonight they will need to execute on defense better. The Cards seemed to struggle yesterday a little with errors, mistakes which loaded the bases at least three times for Kansas yesterday. Even though most think we would have won by more if Kidston was taken out, he improved to 8-0 with the win and showed great resolve despite his mistakes. No offense to the Kansas team, I have friends who follow them for media purposes, but if they were a decent hitting team we would have lost yesterday. For the Cards to beat uk tonight they will have to rely on keeping the ball in the park. Whereas UL is a great small-ball team, uk is a great long-ball team. The Cards gave up 0 HR’s yesterday so that will be key to repeat again tonight. Win or lose the Cards should be ok as Funkhouser would take the mound tomorrow night if the cards are beaten. The Cards will host Super Regional action if they win this regional. Stay tuned to CSZ for times and dates as they become available.

Go Cards!
