Card family, the future is bright. Jordan Nwora is 1 of 4 signees in the 2017 signing class. A class that just happens to be one of the best in Louisville history. Here is a video of what to expect next year.
6’0″, 187 lbs
One of the first recruits to commit for the class of 2017, Malik Cunningham is an explosive dual threat quarterback out of Park Crossing HS in Montgomery, Alabama. His senior year, he lead Park Crossing HS to a 13-1 record, with their lone loss coming in the state semifinal game. During that season, he threw for almost 3,000 yards while rushing for over 1,000 yards. Through the air, he threw 30 touchdowns to 8 interceptions, while on the ground he ran for 19 touchdowns while fumbling the ball only once. Essentially, if you need a touchdown, let Malik Cunningham work his magic. He is precisely the kind of explosive playmaker that Bobby Petrino loves, and has shades of Lamar Jackson in his game. Him and Tre’Sean Smith were very active and vocal during the recruiting cycle in getting fellow recruits to come check out Louisville.

Cards move up in the latest poll:
Alabama State Stung By Louisville Bats
The Cardinals opened the 2017 season in style, as the Cardinals came away with a 7-0 win over Alabama State. The victory marked the Cardinals fourth straight in a season opener, and pushing Dan McDonnell’s record to 8-3 all-time in such games.
Brendan McKay had a solid 2017 debut at both the plate and the mound. McKay earned a victory with six shutout innings, and striking out nine in the process. McKay allowed the Hornets’ four hits in the game, but also went 2-of-3 at the plate with two RBI, including a home run in the fifth inning. Bryan Hoeing pitched three perfect innings in relief duty, earning the save while striking out two in the process.

No real reason for the picture, just wanted sweats a lot in the post. I thought I sweat a lot. You are the sweat king. Here are the Pressers:
Head Coach Rick Pitino
Baseball season starts today, but before that, who doesn’t want to see a highlight of one of our recent stars from last year?
Jeff Nunn blessed us with a highlight video of former U of L outfielder Corey Ray, who was drafted fifth overall to the Milwaukee Brewers in 2016. Ray finished his U of L career with a .318 batting average, 82 stolen bases (4th all-time in school history, and 27 home runs. Ray also added 133 RBI and 36 doubles as one of Louisville baseball’s greatest athletes of all-time.
On this episode we break down Q’s return for the Miami game and the OT thriller against Syracuse. We preview the V-Tech game and look ahead to the showdown in Chapel Hill. Also, we discuss the craziest thing we have ever seen at a Louisville Sporting Event. All that plus some of CardNation calls in to the show.
Today was the kickoff to Baseball season as Baseball Media Day was held. The #6 Cards 2017 season starts Friday in Clearwater vs Alabama State. Here’s the presser:
Head Coach Rick Pitino
On this episode we break down the highs of a win against Boston College and the lows of a loss to Virginia. We address missed curfew-gate and also dive into a preview of the Miami and Syracuse games. Stu from Cardinal Phone Repair stops by and we discuss the worst sports analysts past and present. You will NOT want to miss this episode!
Some people will do everything and ignore anything just to keep slandering your name.
Like most Louisville fans and supporters, I’ve reached a point where I’ve just grown tired of constantly hearing about UK fan Katina Powell and that whole scandal. We know that there was a grad assistant that paid for strippers/dancers for recruits and players. We know that Rick Pitino had an extramarital affair in the past. We know that Bobby Petrino also did the same thing, even if he wasn’t even our coach at the time. We know about Porcini. We know about the motorcycle. We know.
How do we know? Well, we have our good friends at all facets of the national sports media to always be there and remind us. Everyone from ESPN, to CBS Sports, to FS1, and so on and so forth reminding us nearly every time Louisville takes the court of all the acts that went down in Minardi Hall, with every single mention of it being followed up by vehement criticism. We have the likes of Michael Rosenberg crafting slam pieces with obvious negative bias. Even as recent as last night, we have people like Jay Williams criticizing Louisville’s culture simply because a player missed curfew.
Here are how the Cardinals fared this week in the polls released this morning:
Tonight at #12/13 Virginia 7pm ESPN
Saturday vs Miami 2pm ESPN2
The No. 6 Louisville Cardinals travel to Boston, Massachusetts to take on the Eagles of Boston College today at 3 on the ACC Network. Boston College appeared to be heading in the right direction from last year’s abysmal season, but have dropped 6 games in a row entering today.
Boston College (9-14) is led by Sophomore guard Jerome Robinson at 19.7 PPG. The Eagles will need a big performance from him if they want any chance at beating the Cards today.
