_33V9720_CR2.jpeg

Last Season: After a stellar 2014 season from the position, the running backs suffered a setback in 2015, with inconsistencies at quarterback and offensive line weighing them down. While four different running backs had 100-yard games in the 2014 season, only Brandon Radcliff had 100-yard games from the position in 2015 (117 against Syracuse, 146 against Virginia).

Teddy Bridgewater Is A Great Human

I seen this tweet earlier from Brandon Radcliff to Teddy Bridgewater:

 

This is just one of a plethora of reasons to love and tout Teddy Bridgewater. He didn’t want to get to the league only to make a lot of money. He wanted to make it to the league to make a difference. Teddy is a prime example of Louisville First Cardinal Forever. Thanks for being a great human in a time where all we hear about are bad humans doing bad things.

Spring Football Hype Video #DoWork

4625353_G

The end of the 2015 season was promising. With all the young talent and then the decision for several key players to pass on the NFL and return to Louisville, excitement is at an all time high. I am as excited as anybody so I put together a hype\highlight video for you to enjoy. It starts with the end of the 2015 season, then some of the 2016 Cards working hard and finally some highlights from returning players. Card forever James Burgess brought in his #DoWork motto and this team has adopted his motto and attitude. It’s going to be a great year. Spring game is April 16th at 1:00 p.m. After that we will have to wait 5 months to see the Cards again. Hopefully this video will help you get through those 5 months.

ENJOY!

As winners of five of their last six games, the Cardinals are looking to earn bowl eligibility for a sixth straight season when they face their new conference rivals, the Virginia Cavaliers. The Cavaliers, however, must win to keep their hopes of bowl eligibility alive.

Last Time

The Cardinals and Cavaliers played last season in early September. The Cards jumped to an early 7-0 lead, but sacks and turnovers ultimately doomed Louisville. A fumbled punt by Louisville led to an Ian Frye 42-yard field goal with 3:42 left to lead the Cavaliers to a 23-21 upset over the #21 Cardinals.

Question: You open up conference play with a Clemson team that’s picked pre-season favorite in the ACC. What is your outlook on that?

PETRINO: It’s a great conference opener for us. Obviously we need to play our opening game in Atlanta versus Auburn first, then a very good Houston team comes to Louisville and plays us on Saturday, then Clemson is a Thursday night game, a short turnaround, something that is going to challenge our players to get ready for. We have to have a good plan for it. We’ve been working hard, getting ready for that game already. They’re a very good football team with an exciting quarterback. It’s a challenge for us but we’re looking forward to it. I know it’s going to be a great game to have at the University of Louisville, Papa John’s Stadium. That’s a fun thing being in the ACC, the teams we get to bring in on a year-to-year basis at Papa John’s.
