Photo Gallery: Louisville vs WKU

Things didn’t go as planned against WKU but the end result was a victory. The Cards trailed 14-0 before they even completed a pass and were outgained 428 yards to 292. They needed a blocked punt, a goal line stand and a WKU 51 yard field goal to come up short, just to sneak out with a 3 point win despite being a heavy favorite. It wasn’t pretty but at least it wasn’t raining. Here are some pics from the evening… Read the rest of this entry

King and Creque Have the Ability to Change the Game

Cardinal Stadium - Media Day-4

PRESS RELEASE FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF LOUISVILLE ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – University of Louisville head coach Bobby Petrino typically spends a bulk of his practice time focusing on special teams because of the impact it has on the game.

The ninth-year head coach has dedicated scholarships on a punter and placekicker, which isn’t normal in most programs, and it’s paid off with spectacular production.

“Coach Petrino always preaches in meetings how important special teams are, and how you can win or lose a game because of special teams,” punter Mason King said. “We don’t take it for granted. We try to get a huge chunk of land on special teams. We just have to take advantage of the opportunity to make a play.”

Blanton Creque Named To Lou Groza Award Watch List

Blanton Creque

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – University of Louisville placekicker Blanton Creque was one of 30 kickers named to the Lou Groza Award watch list, the Palm Beach County Sports Commission announced Tuesday.

The honor, presented to the nation’s top placekicker, is named for National Football League Hall of Fame kicker Lou “The Toe” Groza, who played 21 seasons with the Cleveland Browns

Creque, a semifinalist for the award a year ago, had a breakthrough season as a sophomore. He connected on 17-of-20 field goal attempts and 58-of-59 extra points, capping the season with 109 points. Creque’s 17 field goals were the third most in school history.

The Shelbyville, Ky., native converted 85.0 percent of his attempts last season – the third-highest mark in school history – and was good on 13-of-16 attempts beyond 30 yards, including a career-long 48-yarder against NC State.

A redshirt junior, Creque is one of three kickers from the Atlantic Coast Conference on the watch list, joining Florida State’s Ricky Aguayo and Clemson’s Greg Huegel.

For his career, Creque has made 33-of-39 field goals, an 84.6 percent conversion rate, which stands as the top mark in school history. His 33 made field goals are the sixth most in school history, and he stands fifth in points by a kicker with 196.

The 27th Annual Lou Groza Collegiate Placekicker Award, presented by the Orange Bowl, recognizes the three finalists during a celebration in Palm Beach County, Florida. It culminates with a gala awards banquet at West Palm Beach’s Kravis Center for the Performing Arts on Dec. 3.

Groza won four NFL championships with Cleveland and was named NFL Player of the Year in 1954. Although an All-Pro offensive lineman as well, Groza ushered in the notion that there should be a place on an NFL roster for a kicker.

Jaire Alexander

Press Release

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Every football program needs a ray or two of sunshine now and again. For the Louisville football team, it’s coming in the form preseason All-American Jaire Alexander and one unusual element: rain.

The Cardinals are coming off a tough loss at NC State, with a stout defensive team in Boston College in waiting. Louisville has spent plenty of time since the Thursday night contest watching film and working in practice to correct those mistakes.

Practice wasn’t going to be easy, especially given the forecast, but that didn’t stop the Cardinals from picking up momentum heading into another league contest.
