UofL, WKU Resume Basketball Series

141220_WKU_0611.jpg

The University of Louisville announced today that they will resume the basketball series with Western Kentucky University starting in 2018. The series was always nice to have on the schedule, you get a in-state school who is in an above average mid major conference. That is, until they threw punches at our boy Trezl and the series wasn’t renewed. It is good to see things have calmed down between the two programs and we can move forward with the games. UofL and WKU currently play in baseball every year and football will begin a series from 2018-2020.

Louisville Football Preview: Running Backs

(Kentucky.com)

Louisville enters this season with a void to fill at the Running Back position. That void is there because Louisville lost its leading rusher from the RB position in Brandon Radcliff. At one point in the season, Radcliff was at the top of the nation in yards per carry. He finished the season with 903 yards on 138 carries (6.5 YPC) and 6 touchdowns. Radcliff was a workhorse for the program for pretty much all 4 years and he has left big shoes to fill for the guys this year.

However, I’m very confident that the position is in good hands. Jeremy Smith showed a lot of promise last season, the now-Senior rushed for 382 yards on 57 carries (6.7 YPC) and 8 touchdowns. Smith is currently recovering from a Jones’ fracture, but is expected to play in the opener against Purdue. I believe Smith will have a monster year, he’s a big back with good speed and proven ability to catch the ball out of the backfield.

Cards In The NFL

nfl ville

The National Football League (NFL) has become America’s past time. The Superbowl is one of the most watched televised events year after year. The halftime show has become so iconic, that even Queen Bey herself (Beyonce) has paid to perform during it.

At the University of Louisville, we have the opportunity to cheer on a really good team every year. But we do not have a professional team in our backyard. So this gives us the unique chance to (almost) pick who our favorite NFL team is. Some of us have family ties to certain teams, others had a favorite collegiate player that they followed into their professional careers. Whatever the case may be, Louisville has a wide variety of NFL fandom roaming our streets.
