55 (Season 3 Episode 2)

55 season 3

This week on 55………..

We talk the downs and downs of Louisville Football so far. We talk LiveWith55 and the Cardinal Sports Zone with your host Steve Rummage (He makes me say that). We talk Black out game this week in what may be a must win? We will see. We go over all of the sports UofL has to offer in TWICA. Does Mike Rutherford make a photo appearance this week? Probably or I wouldn’t have teased it.

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


-I am still in love with the new logo. Got shirts made with them on it too! Shout out to Ray Calhoun for the connect!

-As you guys know I plan to end this series at some point this season. How? When? You will see. How often will I post a 55 this year? I have a plan to send it off right, Don’t worry. I really enjoy bringing you LiveWith55 so I will continue to do that until the end of time or CSZ, whichever comes first. lol. I appreciate all of your support. Let me know your ideas on what I should do. As always I will be listening!


-FYI, Turtle did not save 55 and Bourbon came up with 62-31 all by himself



-It is time for my favorite segment of 55…..THIS WEEK IN CARDINAL ATHLETICS! or TWICA as  I like to call it.


-again, waiting for the theme song….sorry..(LiveWith55 joke)

Football (0-2)

This is how most of us have felt after the first 2 games of the season. We lost to Houston on Saturday 34-31. The secondary couldn’t tackle a toddler and Lamar played like a freshman in his first start. Oh wait. This team is extremely young and this season is not going to turn out like the over-enthusiast would have liked it to have. Conference season starts this week and of course here come the #9 Clemson Tigers. Although I still do not think 0-3 is the end of the world, I would like to see us pull off the 28-27 victory in the black out game. I once thought this would be a housing for Clemson but they are better and so far we aren’t as good yet as I thought we would be. But at least we get to wear these on Thursday………..


-Love them……….This is the kind of Black out that I will enjoy! I have friends who enjoy the other kind…


-Shout out to Turtle, Bourbs and BeastMode on a totally unrelated subject


-I’m out…..

-Speaking of track………

Louisville Men's Golf Cardinal Intercollegiate | Day 2

(courtesy of GoCards.com)

Led by four players finishing in the top 30, the University of Louisville men’s golf team got its 2015-16 season off to an encouraging start by placing sixth at the highly competitive Northern Intercollegiate held at Rich Harvest Farms on Sunday.

Louisville totaled a 54-hole score of 37-over par 901 (308-288-305) to finish competitive in a very strong field. The Cardinals were five shots behind ACC foe Virginia, who finished fifth. Illinois won the tournament with a 7-under par 857, while Purdue was second and UCLA was third. Houston was fourth at 29-over par 893.

Louisville was led by J.D. Lehman’s T-16th finish at 7-over par 223 (74-73-76), while Robin Sciot-Siegrist ended the tournament tied for 22nd with a 9-over par (77-70-78). He fired a 70 in the second round to make up some ground from his first-round score of 77.

  1. If you’ve paid any attention to any story myself or any of my teammates have told on air, I was injured and on the practice squad both years I was there. Never played in a game. Never claimed to have. Thanks for your time. Hopefully you will one day have something better to do than obsess with me.
