Teddy Bridgewater Is A Great Human

teddy-bridgewater-vikings

 

I seen this tweet earlier from Brandon Radcliff to Teddy Bridgewater:

 

This is just one of a plethora of reasons to love and tout Teddy Bridgewater. He didn’t want to get to the league only to make a lot of money. He wanted to make it to the league to make a difference. Teddy is a prime example of Louisville First Cardinal Forever. Thanks for being a great human in a time where all we hear about are bad humans doing bad things.

Lamar Jackson: #401 Ranked Recruit In His Class LOL (Video From @TheACCDN)

I got home and checked my e-mail. I do this every day after I get home from work and or the gym. I subscribe to the ACC Digital Network on YouTube. I get a lot of messages from them throughout any given day but when it is UofL stuff I post it. I seen the title: Lamar Jackson Is A Beast. It would have been easy to title this story that. It took me exactly 12 seconds into the video to figure out that was an understatement. He was ranked 401st in his class. I had no idea but I felt like that would be enough to grab your attention. I hope you enjoy the video as much as I did. I am hungry for Louisville Football and this satisfied my hunger….for the moment.

Miami Dolphins QB Says: Fear Devante Parker

It is no secret that Devante Parker was one of the best receivers EVER at the University of Louisville. Of course you can throw in guys like Deion Branch, Mario Urrutia, Harry Douglas or even an unheralded guy like Lavell Boyd (I did not include LB because he was in my wedding but because he deserved the mention) who is top 10 all-time in almost every category. I am certain I left a few out and just as certain you will tweet me at @Jeremy_CSZ and tell me. Devante undeniably changed the game for the Cards. A deep threat that you could just throw it up to or a guy you could throw a jump ball to in the end zone from 10 yards away and he was just flat-out go get it. Enough of what he did at Louisville though. The rookie WR in Miami had a rough time due to injuries. This year will be different. He will be healthy and ready to go from 1 to 100 straight out of the gate. This week QB Ryan Tannehill had some great things to say about our Cardinal Forever:

Cardinal Catch-Up: Memorial Day Weekend Edition

Welcome to a special Memorial Day edition of Cardinal Catch-Up. We will go over just a few things this morning to catch you up on the state of the Cardinal Athletic World. Also showing the patriotic jerseys in the pick above give us another chance to take a shot at uk. Lol. JK, BNR. I digress.

We at CardinalSportsZone.com extend a huge thanks to all of the people, here and gone, that fought for our country.

First up:

Baseball

The Cards had a rough ACC Tournament falling to both Clemson and Virginia behind abnormally bad efforts by aces Brendan McKay & Drew Harrington. Yesterday for Harrington, 6 straight hits to open up the 5th and the highest amount of runs allowed in a single inning by Louisville all season was just too much to overcome. The Cards will officially find out tonight at 8:30 that they are a national seed. Tomorrow at noon on ESPNU the entire field will be announced. To catch a full recap of yesterdays game, click here. So cheer up Baseball fans, the Cards return to the nest this weekend and will play at Jim Patterson the rest of the way until the goal. Next stop: Omaha. Stay tuned to @UofLBaseball, @CardSportsZone and @Jeremy_CSZ for updates over the next few days including opponents, times and days and ticket prices!
