Matt McGavic: @GeneralWasp
DuPont Manual and recent, University of Louisville grad, the path to Louisville fandom started from a season tickets gift from his uncle his freshman year and a foam Cardinal head as a gag gift. The rest is history. An overall sports enthusiast, he also enjoys the Indianapolis Colts, Boston Celtics and Cincinnati Reds.
Yearbook Quote (probably): Don’t tweet at recruits, kids.
Justin Krueger: @
A recent UofL graduate, Justin has been a fan of UofL since watching the likes of Dave Ragone and Reece Gaines rule the school. Justin is a season ticket holder for UofL football for four years, as well as a frequent goer to UofL baseball. A football and baseball writer for CSZ, Justin also enjoys basketball and supporting the Cardinals at any venture. Outside of UofL, Justin has been a fan of the Miami Dolphins and Portland Trail Blazers. He also likes writing, social media and on the PS4.
Mitch Motley: @
I’m Mitch Motley, a UofL student pursuing a degree in biology. My love for UofL sports started at birth. My dad welcomed me to the Cardinal family and watching games with my dad will always be some of my favorite memories. Through watching games with family, I saw Cardinal athletics as family as well. That’s why I love UofL. Go Cards!
Jeff Nunn: @
Jeff is a father, husband and a diehard Cards fan. He attended U of L in the early ’90’s and have watched the campus grow into what it is today. He makes highlight videos, take photos and does a little writing. “I am happy and proud to be part of the CSZ family.” Writer of Nunnsense.
Paige Sherrard: @
- Started with CSZ in 2012 but left to focus on studies. Graduated and has come back home in mid 2015.
- Born & raised in Louisville, Paige has attended UofL games since before birth.
- Growing up, she was the little girl at the games in the cheerleading outfit with bows in her hair (Thanks Mom)
- UofL Women’s Basketball writer for SB Nation’s @SwishAppeal
- University of Louisville & Sigma Kappa Alumna
- Growing up in a house with parents who were always watching athletic events on tv, it only made sense she would have a love for writing and become one on the side.
- There’s nowhere she would rather be than the 502! Go CARDS!!

My name is Jacob Pratt, AKA Mr Short N Sweet, and I’m one of the young guns here on the site. I’m currently studying Journalism at Morehead State, but my heart lies with the Cards! Favorite Cardinal player ever has gotta be Peyton Siva! Also, little bit of a self-plug, make sure to read my Legends of Louisville series which started with an article on THE Wayne Blackshear!
Steve Rummage: Steve grew up in the Louisville area and graduated from Bullitt Central high school in 2005, where he played basketball and football. He now Ministers at his local church and covers all things UofL. His family is full of die hard Cards fans, so he was born to root for the Cards and can’t wait to bring you all recruiting and UofL news for Cardinal Sports Zone.
