Here is all you need to know about tonight’s match-up vs the Indiana State Sycamores vs YOUR University of Louisville Cardinals!
Today myself, Jeff Nunn & special contributor Ibn Green set foot on the turf at Cardinal Stadium. There has been a TON of progress in the past few months & we are glad to bring you the photos of that progress. We got to speak with AD Vince Tyra who almost beamed with pride when talking about what had been accomplished. He also made mention to replacing the pink seats in the future. I talked to Ibn about memories of us playing our first year at Old Cardinal Stadium then getting the privilege to finish out our careers here. “It’s crazy to see how far the stadium has come in the past 20 years. Has it been 20 years? Gosh we are old!” I then told him that he was old and not me. We marveled when being tld of everything AD Vince Tyra was & would be implementing in the upcoming season. I for one was super pumped. The players entrance is super cool & the AD explained that the player entrance would be interactive for the fans. Here is a gallery from today’s presser at the NEW Cardinal Stadium:
We got the pleasure of watching both this young man & his older brother do great things here at the University of Louisville & know that Geron will continue to flourish at the next level. He was the 19th lineman ever drafted from UofL and is destined to be the best ever. He definitely has the potential to be. Here are the highlights of draft day for Geron. Good luck from us here at CSZ and we hope that you the fans enjoy what we have for you.
Danny Oriente and Jake Snider delivered multi-hit games with two RBIs each, including Snider’s two-run homer in the sixth inning, to give Louisville (25-11) an 8-2 win over Kentucky (25-12), splitting their rivalry series at 1-1. The win extended Louisville’s winning streak to five games, and is the Cardinals’ ninth in their last 11 against their in-state rival.
Kentucky jumped ahead early with a solo home run in the third inning from Trey Dawson. Despite the Wildcats getting an early lead, the Cardinals rebounded with plenty of offense this time around. A pair of RBI singles from Danny Oriente and Josh Stowers in the fourth inning gave Louisville the lead, one they would never relinquish.
The Cardinals added four runs in the fifth inning and two more in the sixth, punctuated with Jake Snider’s two-run homer in the latter inning. In the fifth though, Louisville scored a run on a bases-loaded walk, then an RBI fielder’s choice by Stowers that allowed Snider to reach home safely. Devin Mann stole home while Josh Stowers was jammed between the bases, resulting in Stowers reaching second. Oriente followed it up with an RBI double that would bring Stowers home.
Kentucky scored a run in the eighth inning on an RBI groundout from Luke Becker. Gavin Sullivan would later close the inning, and Sam Bordner retired the side in the ninth to seal the win for Louisville.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The University of Louisville has moved its Wendy’s Wonderful Kids Spring Game due to expected weather impacting the Louisville area on Saturday, Vice-President/Director of Athletics Vince Tyra announced on Wednesday afternoon.
We are not used to being on the bubble. this feeling sucks. I know though if we had taken care of business then we aren’t worried about that right now. It also was much easier to figure out B.Q. (Before Quadrant) but in the end all we really want is to be selected tomorrow for the tournament. I have spent all morning talking to my expert bracketologist Mr. S and we have come up with who CardNation needs root for to help improve our resume. You won’t like them all. I will explain the who’s, what’s & where you can watch them today. First up…

The FBI investigation that took down Louisville Head Coach Rick Pitino has always promised that Rick was just the tip of the iceberg. (Credit Keith for the reference, kinda) Earlier this week a spreadsheet that would validate that was being speculated on. This morning parts of that began to leak. Yahoo.com & Louisville resident Pat Forde released info on the spreadsheet & brought new information to light. Here’s the link to the local fanboys interview. (Suck it, Dakich).
My cousin who’s a diehard uk fan asked if they could vacate this season since Knox is on this list.
Whenever one of CSZ friends ask us to promote big news for them, we do just that! Exciting news for our guy Stu! Congrats!

Head Coach David Padgett
Here are the highlights, presser & interviews from after last nights 84-72 victory over St Francis University.
Before what looked to be a sprained ankle, Ray Spalding was on a mission! 19 points, 13 boards and 5 blocks! Who knows what would have happened if he would have played the entire game. Anas added 12 points and 9 rebounds. The Cards had 6 players in total in double figure scoring (Spalding 19, Adel 13, Anas, 12, Q 11,VJ 10, Nwora 10) but it had a different feel to this game even though Louisville led wire-to-wire. It was stretched out all the way to a 22 point lead with 12:38 left in the game but SFU came back and made it a game all the way to the end. Here is what Coach Padgett and the players had to say:
The Cards bounce back from a tough opening week to trounce SIU 84-42. The freshman are the continued pleasant surprise as all of the guys got in tonight and did their thing. Nwora went for 18 pts & 8 reb, Perry went for 10 points & 7 assists, Sutton added 8 pts & 6 reb & Redding scored 2 three pointers in the final minutes. Deng Adel was the player of the game with 16 pts, 7 reb & 4 stls. Here are the highlights:
