Athlon Ranks The Toughest Games On The Louisville Football Schedule

Athlons

I know you all are itching intensely for some Louisville Football. I intend to scratch that itch today. Well not me per say but I bring you something to scratch that itch. Does that make me a back scratcher? WHERE AM I GOING WITH THIS??? Sorry, Let’s get back on track. Today Athlon Sports released a list of Louisville’s toughest games and ranks them in such order. Who is the toughest on the schedule? What does Athlons think about UofL Football? Here is an excerpt from the story.

For the last five seasons, the ACC champion has either been the Clemson Tigers or the Florida State Seminoles. If there’s one team that could change that, it is the Louisville Cardinals. After beginning the 2015 season just 2-4, head coach Bobby Petrino‘s Cardinals won six out of their last seven games to finish 8-5. With 16 returning starters, Louisville is a dark horse pick to win the ACC championship this fall. The road through the ACC won’t be an easy one as the Cardinals will have to play both Florida State and Clemson since all three are in the Atlantic Division. Louisville also has a tough non-conference slate with road games to Houston and Marshall on tap.

Louisville ACC

 

The ACC Network has been a hot button topic as of late. With the member institutions wanting to make as much money as possible, things are been discussed on just how to attain this goal. One thing that has been discussed in depth is the nine game conference schedule which would be a one game increase. How would that help you may ask? It would be one more game against a school in your conference. More money for your conference schools and if the quality of the league is high, it is another way to build conference prestige. This isn’t the first time that increasing the number of conference games has come up:

The conference last addressed the eight/nine football question at its 2014 spring meetings, and it was a most lively debate, with the status-quo eight prevailing 8-6. Virginia Tech athletic director Whit Babcock, mere months onto the job, voted with the majority, his Virginia counterpart, Craig Littlepage, the minority.

ACC Atlantic: Offense Is Good

Louisville ACC

 

The closer we get to football season a few things start to happen. More new polls come out. (Don’t worry, we won’t show you the ken’s back yard pre-season top 25). The excitement starts to pick up. This year, more people beginning to talk about Louisville Football has been added into the mix. Which has also added to the excitement. We are currently planning a Clemson trip and I am looking forward to that immensely. Watson vs Jackson. Almost sounds like a presidential debate but trust me these two will not bore your pants off. Light them on fire maybe but not a bit boring. The entire ACC Atlantic for that fact has focused on Offense this Spring. Let’s take a look at a few teams and what they are focusing on according to Joedy McCrary from the Associated Press.

ESPN Ranks Nations Top Basketball/Football Tandems

Rick Pitino 2 Bobby Petrino

ESPN released a list of their top Basketball/Football tandems in college sports. Being an all-around athletics program is something we take a lot of pride in at the University of Louisville. Basketball team are coming off of a National Championship a few years ago and the football team coming off of multiple bowl victories. I think we are ranked a few spots too low but am happy overall with the perception just a few days into the Petrino era. Louisville was ranked the 5th best program for the 2 sports. Check out the full list below!
