Louisville Volleyball Surges!

Louisville Volleyball
Current Record
Overall 21-5
Pct .808
Conf 15-1
Pct .938
Streak W5
Home 11-2
Away 8-3
Neutral 2-0
The University of Louisville Volleyball team is surging after a slow start that included a 2-3 start with losses against 3 top 25 teams. They also went against UL vs Auburn in Football versus Wisconsin and Minnesota in the ACC/Big 10 challenge right here at the YUM! They then went on winning streaks of 4,10 & are currently on a 5 game winning streak.
Their 5 losses came to #18 Illinois (3-0), #3 Minnesota (3-2), #10 Wisconsin (3-1), #19 uk (3-1) & #20 UNC (3-1). They are on a great roll heading towards the go home portion of their schedule which includes 2 at home this weekend vs Clemson and Georgia Tech. As an avid UofL Volleyball fan I am glad to see the girls overcome the early adversity and surge at the right time. Today Molly Sauer was named Freshman of the week in the ACC for the 2nd time and Tess Clark was named ACC Player of the Week also. The new polls came out today with UofL jumping up all the way to #17 from #22 in the USA Today/AVCA Coaches Poll! They jumped up to #11 in the D1 Volleyball poll. Click on the link below for the full polls and national leaders for the Cards! Good luck ladies and GO CARDS!!!!!

55 (Season 2 Episode 4)



This week on 55………

We have new uni’s to talk about again for the second straight week, these as hated as last weeks were loved. We have a triumphs and let downs. We will talk about Teddys first start in the NFL. The victory over Wake and the smothering defense. The new Louisville Slugger Gerod Holliman and much more. So sit down, buckle up and enjoy the ride. These are the 55 most intriguing,ridiculous or down right best or worst things I have heard this week. This…is….55





2) Well there’s an image for you and an overall description for what our defense did on Saturday. We knocked out Wake. giving up -22 yards rushing to go along with 8 sacks and 4 INT’s, our defense kept us in the game and won the game as far as I am concerned. Holliman, Burgess and Rankins recorded Interceptions. Lozo got 3 of the 8 sacks. On offense the rookie QB looked shaky at times but when he started feeding the beast Brandon Radcliff (130 yds 2 TD) , he seemed to run the offense more fluently. Moving forward we have to take care of the ball better. 4 fumbles vs Wake is unacceptable but I think that will improve with reps for Reggie. Also stop the penalties now please….signed all of Football. The Cards take on Syracuse at the Carrier Dome Friday night.




4) They started calling Calvin Pryor that this pre season, maybe it will catch on for Gerod. Once only known for his earth shattering hit, Holliman has come full circle. With his 6th INT of the season Saturday he is currently #1 in the country and just 4 away from tying UofL’s single season record. Anthony Floyd had 10 in one season and 18 overall which is also a record.


5) Teddy Bridgewater got his first NFL start yesterday…..

55 (Season 2 Episode 3)



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 ………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)

55 (Season 2 Episode 2)



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 ………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

55 (Season 2 Episode 1)



It is finally that time of year! No silly, not football season, it is time for my weekly episodic series I affectionately name 55. First off I want to send a HUGE Shoutout to Tim Haag and Birds Nest Graphics for designing the new and permanent logo for 55. You can follow Tim at @UofLBirdsNest. I decided a permanent logo would help establish a familiar brand. If you guys find the number 55 in weird places still feel free to send them to me as they will still be included somehow. Without further adieu…..

This week on 55……….

We talk the promised land, We catch you up on a ton of things that have happened since I’ve been gone. (Please no Kelly Clarkson jokes) and a lot of other things that may or may not be of importance to you. I will bank on the fact they WILL. No pun intended. We will go over tonight’s huge Blackout. (The one on the field) So here we go, here are the 55 most ridiculous things I have heard, had to debate, or just thought about this past week. This ………55.

Volleyball Announces 2014 Slate And Also New Uniforms?


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.
