Louisville vs N.C. State: Postgame Recap

After what many considered to be a sub par performance against Duke last week, the Louisville football team bounced back in impressive fashion. The Cardinals thumped the Wolfpack from the opening snap and never looked back. The final score read Louisville 54-N.C. State 13, and it could’ve been worse had it not been for a scoreless 3rd quarter from the Cards.

Louisville vs Clemson: Postgame Recap

clemson

For the first time this season, the Cardinals found themselves on the losing end of the scoreboard when the final whistle blew. It started the way the past two match-ups between these two teams had gone. Louisville’s offense was held without a point in the first quarter for the first time all season, but the defense held the Clemson offense scoreless through the first 15 minutes as well. The 2nd quarter began with the Cardinals deep in Tiger territory. It didn’t take long for the offense to punch in the first touchdown of the game on a Jeremy Smith 1 yard burst. The rest of the 2nd quarter, did not follow the same script.

Louisville at Marshall: Postgame Recap

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.

Proof That Louisville Is Much More Than Just Lamar Jackson

usa-today-8908003.0

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!

Louisville Football Breakdown, Part Five: Running Backs

_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.

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!
