Just a few quick notes before I head out the door this morning. You may already know all of these things, but maybe not…
*Football practice begins on Thursday for the University of Louisville. They will have a team meeting on Wednesday and then really begin on Thursday.
*There is supposed to be an announcement (I think today) as to if any practices are open to the public. I haven’t heard anything, but I wouldn’t be surprised if maybe the first two or three are open.
UPDATE – OPEN PRACTICE TIMES ANNOUNCED. CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE SCHEDULE.
This week on 55……….
We talk commitments……HUGE commitments. How the Cards are doing under Bobby P. Red-White scrimmage tickets go on sale. Hot dogs, Nelson, Intrastate rivals and more. Is there one more big commitment in the CARDS for UofL this week? I say L yeah! So strap in, here are the 55 most ridiculous things I have heard, had to debate, or just thought about this past week. This …..is……55.
1) ACC ACC ACC ACC ACC ACC ACC ACC ACC ACC ACC………..I’m really not sure if I said it enough times but ACC ACC ACC ACC ACC ACC. My bad, I know that was the same #1 as it was last week but so much more respect nationally just due to the conference switch. Much more fun league to be a part of as well. Got the following tweet right after the game….
3) Last year we would have “slipped by” or “escaped” This year we shut down a top ACC team. So proud of this team…..
4) Read my experience from my first ACC game here
Louisville RB commit James Allen picked the Cards over offers from the likes of Tennessee, Miami, Ole Miss, and Arkansas and I think we will all be glad he did. As you read this post I assume you haven’t seen Allen run the ball just yet. If that is the case you are in for a treat. Click the link below and enjoy!
Bobby Petrino got his 4th 2015 commit today when 3 star RB James Allen (FL) announced for Louisville. The 6’0 180 lb running back chose the Cardinals over Tennessee, Cincinnati, Miami, Georgia Tech, Ole Miss, Purdue, USF, IU, and Arkansas. Allen had been considered a heavy Tennessee lean over the past few months but a visit to the Louisville campus in the past week was apparently enough to change that. Allen is rated the 76th RB according to 247Sports and the 54th ranked RB on Rivals. Allen is sure to be another nice piece to the Bobby Petrino Offense!
