55 (Season 2 Episode 5)



This week on 55…..


The Field Hockey team is on a MONSTER run. We get more shots of the bball hoop gear. Somebody will be back for the Clemson game……A renewal and a ranking and the numbers on Louisville Footballs great Defense this year. 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


1) Per @FBSchedules:


2) That is good news for all of us here in the state as far as I am concerned.


3) Speaking of Louisville football, The Cards had a masterful defensive performance on Friday as they defeated Syracuse 28-6. The Cards recorded 2 safeties in one game for the first time in school history and the defense allowed a total of 255 yards. Holliman got INT #7 on the year and James Sample got one as well. Brandon Radcliff continued to excel on the field as he had a 110 yard 2 TD day. Keith Kelsey led the D with 9 tackles and is the Cards top tackler on the year. The Cards will next go to Death Valley to take on Clemson……too bad there are no other storylines…



DeVante Parker


5) Oh


6) Today Coach Petrino revealed that from what he has heard from the medical staff, Devante will be ready to go on Saturday. The Cards with Parker will surely make a difference as the Cards have been lacking a deep threat.


7) The Cards are a double digit dog for the first time since the Sugar Bowl this weekend



Teddy Bridgewater


9) Yeah we think it’s ridiculous too…..

10) The Cards have jumped up to #1 in the Overall Defense category.

11) Notice the Cards have played more games than most of the top 25 has too….impressive.


12) Justin went on the TalkinACCSports podcast last night to talk about Clemson. We will post a link as soon as we get one.


13) My buddy Keith Jones, an avid Clemson Football fan, sent me some info about Clemson to pass along












19) Thanks for the info!


20) Coach Petrino said today that he can’t imagine Death Valley being any louder than Syracuse last week. Imagine how loud it would have been if it was filled up…


21) The new College Football polls came out and Louisville was close but not yet ranked. I am having big issues with the pollsters Arizona jumped from NR to 10 and Clemson is just now jumping back in. I feel like we are about right and if we can pull off the W at Clemson we will jump back in. View full poll here


22) The time was set for the UL-NCST game next week as well


23) They put out a UL/Clemson hype video


24) The newest ACC Power Poll came out today


25) This week is surely going to be a great and fun week for UofL Football


26) Moving forward


27) We also got a picture of the new Red Basketball Jerseys from our good friends at Cardinal Authentic




29) Still a little ugly but winning will cure that…..


30) Lets go into our Week in Review


31) The @ULFieldHockey team continued its dominance by winning both games vs #4 Duke and #14 MEE SHE GUN. Sorry just always wanted to do that. The Cards are on a roll and their season is far from over. They face #13 Syracuse on the road in their lone game this week.


32) University of Louisville senior Sebastian Stiefelmeyer defeated USC’s second-ranked Yannick Hanfmann 6-3, 6-2 in the finals of the 2014 Saint Francis Health System ITA Men’s All-American Championships Monday afternoon. He becomes the first UofL player to win the ITA’s fall national title. (GoCards.com). The Cards will now head to the Wake Forest Invitational on Friday.


33) Women’s Volleyball split their weekend slate against Virginia and Va Tech. They beat Va Tech 3-2 behind Janelle Jenkins 14 kills as the Cards win their first ACC road game. They turn around and fell to Virginia the next day 3-1. The Cards will face #4 FSU and ND on Friday and Sunday respectively at the YUM!


34) The Men’s Soccer team had a rough week as they dropped both games and will surely drop out of the top 10. They host #12 IU Tuesday and ND on Friday.


35) The Women’s Tennis team recorded a record of 9-3 at the Notre Dame invitational. The ladies are off this week as they gear up for the ITA Regionals.

37) Rowing season started Saturday as the Cards held their annual Red and Black Regatta. This was their only home contest of the season. The team is of until November 1st when they travel to Chattanooga for Head of the Hooch.


38) Cross Country (GoCards.com) Juniors Ernest Kibet and Edwin Kibichiy finished in the top five to help the University of Louisville men’s cross country team to a sixth place finish at the Greater Louisville Classic on Saturday morning at E.P. “Tom” Sawyer State Park. Freshman Kelsie Schwartz finished in 38th place to lead the women to a 13th-place showing.

46) Russ had nice things to say about our upcoming Hoop season




48) Russ knows what he’s talking about


49) The Basketball team received the #7 pre-season ranking from Sporting News (full poll) and the ACC was represented very well.

51) Here is this weeks Justin Time For The Weekend


52) I got back on the football field for the first time in awhile with CSZ’s own Steve Rummage. We played like we didn’t miss a beat. It was awesome. We won the first game of 7 on 7 10-3 and won the last game 10-9 after a near sack by me forced an errant throw that Steve took to the house for the victory after trailing 8-3. Yes I am bragging about flag football, it’s my column and I will relive my glory years if I want to. lol
