In a sign of things to come, Lamar made history tonight. He became the first Cardinal to ever win the Maxwell Award for the nations Player Of The Year & the first Card to win the Walter Camp Player of The Year Award. He was also named to the All-American team. He somehow lost the O’Brien award (best QB) to a guy that finished second to Lamar in the ACC Player Of The Year Race:

PRESS RELEASE

Rocco Gasparro
Louisville Football SID

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Finishing the 2016 regular season with a 9-3 mark, three members of the University of Louisville football team have accepted invitations to 68th Annual Reese’s Senior Bowl on Jan 28, 2017.

Wide receiver Jamari Staples, tight end Cole Hikutini safety Josh Harvey-Clemson will represent the Cardinals, which is the most in school history and the fourth-straight year the Cardinals have been represented in the prestigious all-star game.

A transfer from UAB, Staples was third on the team with 35 receptions for 593 yards and a pair of scores on the nation’s top scoring offenses. A Lineville, Ala., native posted a pair of 100-yard receiving games, catching five passes for 136 yards versus Syracuse and had a season-best seven receptions for 120 yards and a touchdown against Virginia.

Hikutini, who was a second-team all-ACC selection, finished the regular season with 49 receptions for 656 yards from his tight end spot, with a team-best eight touchdowns. The Sacramento, Calif., native recorded two 100-yard receiving games, including a career-best 118 yards versus NC State on Oct. 22.

Despite missing two games with an injury, Harvey-Clemons tied for fourth on the team in tackles with 61 and added a pair of sacks. He posted a season-high 11 tackles in consecutive games versus Marshall and Clemson.

Bowl Projections: 11/28/16

Here are the Bowl projections after Saturdays embarassment vs uk. Not as bad as it could have been. Having the Heisman trophy favorite may be the reason why we are still in contention for a NY6 bowl. If we do not get this bowl, my guess would be that we end up in the Citrus Bowl.

Lamar Still Heisman Favorite

We all know the results were disastrous Sunday after Louisville’s loss to the team down the road. We all thought well there goes the Orange Bowl! (I thought so) Maybe Not. There goes Lamar’s Heisman! (I did not think so myself) That also does not seem to be a foregone conclusion either. Multiple talking heads have stated he still has a firm grip on it as well. Then we got this from our guy Jeff Greer:

So there you go. The only certainty after Sunday is that we were embarrassed about the team we lost to.

You knew when Tom Jurich was ready to name a successor to Anne Kordes’ throne that it would be a Home Run. Dani Busboom Kelly returns to the Cards after 5 seasons as an assistant coach at perennial powerhouse Nebraska. We are very lucky to have her. Here are some tweets chronicling her very busy day.
