55 (Episode 9)


This week…..on 55…..

Once again I figured on having a pretty uneventful week. Name a new coach, get our recruits lined up and on board with the new staff and carry on. Boy was I wrong. In this weeks 55 I have so much info I may not be able to put a lot of pictures in, or joke on Shawn during the monologue. (Sorry Pal) From Old friends to new ones and commitments given and taken away, this has been quite the week. So sit down and buckle up because this week’s episode is sure to take you on an emotional roller-coaster of a ride.

So once again, I share with you the 55 most ridiculous things I have heard, had to debate, or just thought about this past week. This is….55

1) Poona Ford de-committed

2) Chris Nelson de-committed

3) BOTH are now considering Texas

4) Thanks Charlie…..glad you are not cut like that

5) Charlie Strong

6) Sorry Charlie……

7) George Rushing de-committed from the Cards also as well as Isaiah Ford….hopefully both can find their way back home to the ‘Ville

8) It has been rumored that current Purdue U (PU for short)  RB Dalyn Dawkins may be trying to find his way back home. It was a shame that Charlie didn’t recruit the in-state kids more than he did. More on this later…

9) He stated in an interview after being hired at Texas that he was glad to be in a state that has talent to recruit….or something along those lines. Classy move Chuck

10) Almost as classy as what he says during the following interview…..


12) Yep you heard him right, he was job hunting before our bowl game….SMH Read the rest of this entry

Cards football staff turning their attention to Ferby?

With the recent news that 3-star running back Daniel Gresham will not be apart of the 2014 recruiting class for the Cards, it left many fans shocked. Some kids have decommitted on their own, but Gresham made it clear that he still wanted to come here and couldn’t wait to meet Bobby Petrino.

It appears that the staff already has a plan for who they want to bring in at that spot. One big name is D’Andre Ferby from Nashville, TN and Ensworth High School. If you remember, Ensworth played Louisville Trinity to open up the 2013 season on ESPNU. Ferby had a huge game with 187 yards rushing and 3 touchdowns, including the game winning touchdown run with 1:29 left to play to give Ensworth the 1 point victory.

3* RB Daniel Gresham will not be a Card

Keeping up with the current commits for the Cards and finding out if they will stay committed has been a busy process. Some guys have just decommitted on their own, but it looks like this one is different. Three-star running back Daniel Gresham seemed excited about meeting Bobby Petrino and still remaining apart of this class. It doesn’t look like that will be the case now.

This comes as a surprise to most of us since Gresham was clear that he was still wanting to be a Card. But it looks as if Petrino and his staff are wanting to go in another direction at the running back spot.
