“ALL RISE!!! Court is now in session. The honorable Bucket Hat King LJ tha Fiasco presiding. Please be seated and come to order”
Good morning to all of you. The BHK is upset he let Marshall cause him to have heart palpitations all of last week despite being reassured by 90% of CardNation there was nothing to worry about. My apologies to the court for my pessimism, I will do better. Nonetheless, I will now read my observations of the Marshall game.
- The BHK is aware that Marshall University is not the same as West Virginia University. From what i have heard and read it appears that Marshall fans were very welcoming and friendly. Still, this was a trip I refused to take (see opening statement for my reason)
For the first time all season, the Louisville offense appeared out of sorts in the first quarter. Lamar started the game missing receivers, forcing passes, and the running game was never really there for the speedy quarterback. Once the offense settled down, we saw the nation’s top ranked offense do what we’ve become accustomed to, put a lot of points on the scoreboard.
Louisville’s offense recorded a season low 7 points in the first quarter. Then the second quarter began. Lamar found his tight end, Cole Hikutini in the end zone twice, ran for a score, and then found Reggie Bonnafon in the end zone to close out a 28 point second quarter to go into halftime up 35-7. The announcers were not shy in their disappointment in the Louisville offense early on. It seemed as though no matter what the offense did right, there was always something they could’ve been doing better. As a fan, I’ve never experienced a team being so critiqued while building an insurmountable lead but that’s where we are now in the program which is a great thing.
Tonight the Cards traveled to the very hostile Joan & dominated Marshall 59-28. Despite it taking awhile to get in hand, the Cards took control and imposed their will. Lamar accounted for 7 more touchdowns tonight putting him at 25 total. The #3 Cards next face #5 Clemson Saturday night in Death Valley. Here are today’s highlights.
Today on the Cardinal Sports Zone on 93.9 The Ville the guys had a ton of football to talk. Your host Steve Rummage & social media dude Jeremy Wahman was in studio today. The guys talked Marshall, Marshall, Marshall while Steve kept looking ahead to Clemson. We all have been. The Red Ragers called in to give us the skinny on the tailgate today PLUS dropped a bombshell regarding next weeks tailgate. The guys also put out a contest for social media with the opportunity to win a Lamar Jackson issue of Sports Illustrated. Steve left about 11:30 and handed the reigns over to Jeremy as Cardinal forever Ibn Green came on to talk about his premonition from the CSZ Kickoff party. CSZ’ers LJ & Justin called in to make predictions as well. If you missed it earlier then you MUST check it out now! The Cardinal Sports Zone show is brought to you by JB’S Pub on Central alongside of Doug Budd at Red Edge Realty and homesforsaleinlouisville.net.

Last Time: After defeating Kentucky for the first time since 2011, Teddy Bridgewater made his first career start against the Marshall Thundering Herd. In spite of having a halftime lead, Marshall rallied with 10 points in the second half to pull off a 17-13 comeback win in Louisville.
Louisville leads the all-time series 16-12, but Marshall has won the last four including the 1998 Motor City Bowl and 2002 GMAC Bowl.
The fine folks at The ACC Digital Network are at it again. The accolades are piling up for Sophomore QB Lamar Jackson. If you watch TV or listen to the radio you may think this is a one man team. Lamar would not want it that way. Very humble, classy and easy going, Lamar has indeed been the spark the Cards need this year. But it brings up the question: Is this a one man team? The answer is a very resounding no. The Cards have a smothering Defense, great O-line (That felt good to say), great special teams and a balanced rushing stable and it seems like just about every wide receiver has a TD. That is balance. In this video The ACC DN gives you the video evidence to back up my claims. (facts) Enjoy!
In case you have been living under a rock or like me have just been way too busy with life, you have heard about the Showtime series: A Season With FSU Football. I had heard about it at the beginning of the season and immediately thought, great they will make a mockery of our program if we happen to lose. I did NOT think we would lose but on the off chance I wasn’t too pleased that they could use it as a recruiting tool. My how the tables have turned. Since we decimated them I suddenly was OK with the revolution being televised. So after I got home from the gym today I turned it on. It was a very good program as far as insight into the program and college football as a whole. The victory was a much appreciated cherry on the top. In case you have not watched it, here you go. Sorry for taking so long to post it but I did move into a new house last week and am still getting it together.
Yes we are three games in & there’s enough footage for a Lamar Jackson Highlight Reel. The people at @UofLFootball just posted this and I’m sure you will enjoy. LJ has put on an absolute show so far this year. Here’s hoping we have many more of these in the future. Enjoy!
Papa Johns Cardinal Stadium set an attendance record with 55,632 people watching Louisville defeat 2nd ranked Florida State on Saturday September 17th. Even though it was the largest crowd ever, there was one person not in attendance. 7-year old Bryson Betts is a huge Cardinal fan but wasn’t able to witness history because he was resting in his hospital bed after approximately 8 hours of brain surgery.

Today Andy Staples writes about something we hold dear to our heart & something we already knew. Lamar Jackson Is great. Andy refers to him as the new Superman. I don’t see an S on his chest but I do see points on the board. The Cards through 3 games are averaging 65 points & the basketball team averaged 68 on the season. That’s a lot of points! That’s just a quick math job with no calculator. I’m out shopping & don’t have a pencil, paper or patience. Hi Theresa! Regardless I’m certain Kelly Dickey will send me a message correcting me to the decimal. I wouldn’t expect any less. The point is Superman is ours for the moment and we should relish it.
