Teddy Bridgewater
The 2013 college football season has the potential to be one of the greatest quarterback classes ever. Eight of the top 10 teams in last year’s final AP Poll return their starting quarterbacks, and every conference except the Big 12 returns either their first- or second-team quarterbacks from last season. 

In preparation for the 2013 season, ESPN Stats & Info will take a deeper look at the top QBs entering the fall. Friday, we look at Teddy Bridgewater.

Meet Goodluck Okonoboh



There has been some chatter among many of the Louisville recruiting experts that Goodluck Okonoboh could be moving up the list of 2014 big men recruits for the University of Louisville. First off what a GREAT name and second count me in as one who would love to see the 6’9 Okonoboh as the Cards center of the future. Last year as I began watching film on Montrezl Harrell I was absolutely wowed, well I felt that same thing after watching Goodluck’s tape. We all know that Pitino is looking to land a PF and a C in the class of 2014 and while Trey Lyles is top for that last PF position I could definitely see Okonoboh moving into that spot for the Center position. You can follow Goodluck on twitter @Goodlucko_12. Check out 35 seconds into the highlight below: SWAG.

Cardinal Catch-up: Jazz Covington


     As you guys know from time to time, I talk to some of my dear friends from Cardinal past. I always tell them if they have any projects or things they want people to hear about to let me know. I was talking to Jazz the other day and she told me about which is for her Dream-it, Claim-it clothing line of T-shirts. The proceeds go towards making a difference in the local community. As one of the first Lady Cards who was a superstar I implore you all to go check out her site and support it if you can. The shirts do go all the way up to 4XL. I will always show any former Card my love and support. Go show Jazz some love CardNation!

Go Cards!

Cardinal Head

Wow! What a fun season of sports that was, right? If you are the casual UofL fan and you mainly keep up with football and men’s basketball, you got to enjoy a Sugar Bowl and a National Championship.

Volleyball in the NCAA Tournament, a National Champion swimmer, men’s soccer making an NCAA Tournament run to the Elite 8, and so much more. Here is a little recap of how each team at UofL finished this season. To say the least, it is quite impressive! Go Cards!
