For a hint of the upside, look at Jackson’s last two games. In wins against Kentucky and Texas A&M, Jackson passed for 357 yards, rushed for 412 yards and totaled seven TDs. Put that over a full season, and you have something in the neighborhood of Johnny Manziel’s Heisman Trophy year. Jackson must develop more accuracy, and another spring and fall camp with Bobby Petrino won’t hurt.

That was the caption under Lamar Jackson’s ranking in the Sporting News top 25 QB’s for 2016. Yes LJ was in there. No he wasn’t top 10. Yes I feel he should’ve been higher. The improvement over the summer will surely leap this kid into the top 5 status by the end of the season in my opinion. He is in my top 5 for favorite QB’s in recent Louisville history. 1) Chris Redman (That’s my Quarterback) 2) Teddy Bridgewater 3) Dave Ragone 4) Lamar Jackson 5) Hunter Cantwell/ Stefan LeFors.

Justin Renck: My Governor’s Cup prediction

I have had the countdown to 3:30 pm on September 2nd in my phone for months now. There is excitement on so many levels. UofL football is starting, we play UK first, and I am finally back in Louisville full-time after being in Auburn for the last 4 years (which when it comes to football season, I can’t complain about being down there!).

I bought season tickets in the upper level when they built the expansion for the 2010 season. I was still in Auburn for another couple of years, and I only made it to about 4 games in the past 2 years, but I knew I was purchasing them for when I got back because we would be back to being good again and I didn’t want to be on a wait list. That time has come, and it worked out perfectly.

Now, about this game…
