This week on 55……….
We talk Cardinal Camo…….YES…..Cardinal Camo. We go over huge upsets and letdown. We go over the wet, wet, win in South Florida and a slew of other great but random things that have happened this week. Glad to have 55 back for you guys after the hiatus last week. Without further adieu, here are the 55 greatest, most ridiculous or random things I have heard, had to debate, or just thought about this past week. This …..is……55.
1) First off I want to wish my mom a speedy recovery. She means the world to me and normally I don’t talk about personal issues on 55 but if you get a moment, say a prayer. I put her for #1 because she is my number 1….mushy I know (Don’t care)
This week on 55……….
We talk commitments……HUGE commitments. How the Cards are doing under Bobby P. Red-White scrimmage tickets go on sale. Hot dogs, Nelson, Intrastate rivals and more. Is there one more big commitment in the CARDS for UofL this week? I say L yeah! So strap in, here are the 55 most ridiculous things I have heard, had to debate, or just thought about this past week. This …..is……55.
1) ACC ACC ACC ACC ACC ACC ACC ACC ACC ACC ACC………..I’m really not sure if I said it enough times but ACC ACC ACC ACC ACC ACC. My bad, I know that was the same #1 as it was last week but so much more respect nationally just due to the conference switch. Much more fun league to be a part of as well. Got the following tweet right after the game….
3) Last year we would have “slipped by” or “escaped” This year we shut down a top ACC team. So proud of this team…..
4) Read my experience from my first ACC game here
Today the Cardinals released their schedule for the upcoming season. The Cardinals will enter their first season in the ACC with a pretty good schedule and a home schedule that will boast 9 nationally ranked teams. One of the highlights of the upcoming season will take place in Minneapolis, Minnesota as the Cards will partner with ND to take on Minnesota & Wisconsin in the ACC/B1G Challenge August 29-30. It will not however be a falls count anywhere match. Also we found out that the Lady Cards will be sporting new Uniforms this season:
Real smooth looking and different then what we are used to. It looks to be another banner year for the Cards as look for their 25th NCAA appearance. We will rekindle rivalries with old conference foes such as Syracuse, Notre Dame, Pittsburgh, Virginia Tech & Florida State. We will continue the fierce rivalries with former conference foe Cincinnati (that felt weird to say) and Kentucky. Below is the schedule for the upcoming season.
Janelle Jenkins had 10 kills and two blocks to lead the University of Louisville volleyball team to a 25-21, 25-17, 25-20 sweep of Middle Tennessee Tuesday night in Murfreesboro.
