Around the Bases, April 13th, 2016

20160331_142601

Welcome back to another edition of Around the Bases, and this is possibly the biggest week for Louisville baseball all season.

Last weekend was very tumultuous for the Cardinals team. After having the game at Kentucky postponed due to rain, they immediately traveled to Tallahassee to face Florida State. The Cardinals lost the series (7-12 Fri., 7-1 Sat., 5-16 Sun.), making it their second series defeat in the ACC this season. The Cardinals did not lose any series against ACC opponents last season, and the Cardinals dropped to 3-6 against Top 25 opponents on the road in 2016. The Cardinals returned home yesterday and thumped Western Kentucky 14-2, improving to a 20-1 record at home.

Around the Bases, April 6th 2016

20160402_143610Welcome back to Around the Bases, which has not been rained out today.

Last weekend was business as usual for Louisville, as the Cardinals swept the Hokies. With wins of 8-4 (Fri.), 13-0 (Sat.) and 9-3 (Sun.), the Cardinals have a six-game winning streak heading into another big weekend at Florida State. Florida State currently holds a two-game lead over Louisville in the ACC Atlantic Division, and a series win could be big in clinching back-to-back division titles for the Cardinals.

Well if you are still reading this after that headline, thank you. All four of you are appreciated! The Louisville Cardinals dismantled Florida State on Wednesday night by a final score of 84-65, and that is with the ‘Noles finishing the game on a 10-0 run against the Louisville reserves. This was a 25-30 point game for a lot of the second half. The Cards dominated this one from start to finish and now find themselves in 2nd place in the ACC.

Louisville (14-3, 3-1) returns to action on Wednesday night when Florida State (12-5, 2-3) comes to town, and while that may not get the needle moving in basketball like it would football, the Seminoles are not a team to overlook. Here are some notes about each team to prepare you for the next ACC game for the Cards…

Rick Pitino previews Florida State

Video: TheCrunchZone.com

Opening statement

PITINO: Well, I’ll tell you basically what I tell the team is basically buckle your seat belts because it’s gonna be one helluva ride in the ACC. It reminds me so much of the Big East in its prime in terms of, you know, you see it going one way, then all of a sudden you see now you have Virginia and Clemson near the top, you see Georgia Tech playing real well. Syracuse looks like they’re out of it, now they get hot. Duke loses three, Virginia loses three and then suddenly the thing’s upside down, and then it will turn back. It will be a roller coaster ride that will drive fans and coaches crazy, but it will be a lot of fun playing this type of competition, needless to say.

Q: Is it even more unpredictable than you thought going in?

Andrea Adelson published her way-too-early 2016 ACC football rankings on ESPN.com. To no surprise, Clemson and Florida State still top the list, with Louisville right behind them. The Cards return a lot of talent and should be good, but we can’t act like those two teams are suddenly going to fall off. 2016 should be a fun year for sure. Here is what she had to say about the top 3 teams.

I have said it before and I will say it again: I love when opposing schools have youtube channels and keep them updated with press conferences and preview videos like this. It certainly helps pass the time during the week while you wait for Saturday to get here. If you are like me, you just can’t get too much information leading up to a game like this.

This preview is from Seminoles.com.
