Today, after attending Coach Pitino’s presser, there were five takeaways I took from this press conference.
First, Coach Pitino, is very happy with this schedule. He is always praising his ability to always having one of the top schedules year in and year out. This is what I love to hear because having a tough schedule makes the team better prepared for a deep run in March. This schedule doesn’t have a brutal stretch. Coach Pitino made the comment about phasing the “he** out” of Virginia”. There are 21 home games on the schedule which can be good or bad. Some of the biggest tests on the schedule are on the games on the road.
Secondly, Coach Pitino, praised how recruiting was going. He preached on staff continuity because it builds relationships with the family. Pitino talked about when Coach Mike Blado left and how Coach Jordan Fair stepped right in and built just as strong relationships with the families. He also praised that Trey Lewis and Damion Lee helped shaped the way the staff now recruits players like looking at their personalities and how they perform on and off the court.

Today, The Cleveland Browns released former Louisville Cardinal Safety Calvin Pryor after getting in a altercation with a teammate. This news comes very surprising after Calvin made the 53 man roster earlier in the week. This is sad news to see Calvin be without a job.
Here is a link to the story…
Recently Moses Brown made his visit to the University of Louisville. Moses is the #13 player according to Rivals.com. He really really enjoyed his visit according to his father. This would be a huge addition to get. He goes to a high school that produced another cardinal great in Russ Smith.

Recently Louisville received word that 5 star center, Balsa Koprivica, from Windermere Preparatory School in Orlando would make an unofficial visit during the Clemson game. Balsa is the #9 player in the 2019 class. He is the #2 center in the class. Balsa plays similar to a Kristaps Porzingis and would add tremendous size to the front court.
Here is some highlights of his recent outing…..

Coach Larry Fedora: We are looking forward to our first conference opener. Fortunate to have it at our place at home. This will be a heck of a chore against a tremendous player, a really good football team, a team that is coached very well, but we’re looking forward to finding out who we are.
What do you need to see from your quarterbacks this week in practice to kind of help you make a decision on who’s your guy for Saturday?
Coach Larry Fedora: You know, really we just need to see consistency, need to see the guys that are going to understand the game plan, be able to pick it up as quickly as possible because you’ve got two days to put it in. You know, who’s going to be able to handle that, move the chains, and make this unit better when they’re on the field.

Coach Petrino: We’re coming off of a good win at Purdue or actually up in Indianapolis last week. We didn’t do everything right. We had mistakes. We didn’t score enough touchdowns, particularly when we get down in the red zone like we’re used to doing. But Lamar played a great game. He completed 30 passes for 378 yards and rushed for another 100 yards. Defensively I liked what I saw. I thought our guys played with a lot of emotion. I thought they played fast and physical, so that was really good to see, and when the game was on the line, they completely shut down Purdue. Looking forward to going on the road to play a very good North Carolina team, a team that’s very talented and experienced, so with that, I’ll just open up for questions.
Here are few more highlights of Lamar Jackson from Frankie Vision vs Purdue.
Recently Freshman Brian Bowen sat down with the good people at UofL and answered questions about himself. He talked about various topics…
After a HUGE comeback win after Purdue, Louisville picked up another commitment 2018 3 star offensive lineman Tyler Steen. Tyler is a 6-5, 250lb offensive / defensive lineman. This makes now 3 commits from St Thomas Aquinas High School in Miami, Florida. Thats the same High School as current Cards recruit Nik Bonnito. BirdGang18 is shaping up to be the BEST recruiting class in Louisville Football History.
Tomorrow, starts my favorite time of the year. No, it’s not Christmas or Thanksgiving (even though I like to eat) it’s better than both and more. This time tomorrow, Louisville football will be getting ready to start their 2017 season. Louisville football has been in my life for 21 years. In these past 21 years, I have seen Louisville football grown just like I have. Louisville Cardinal football has gotten me through all the ups and down I have encountered in my life.
Recently, Louisville 2018 commit Anfernee Simmons was compared to NBA top pick Markelle Fultz. Anfernee has been shooting up all recruiting rankings after his stellar Summer performance in the AAU circuit. He is the number 8 overall player on most recruiting websites. He is VERY VERY talented and I can’t wait to see him in the Cardinal Uniform…
