All of the events and fan-friendly entertainment is awesome but I’m just here for some football. This will be your first and last look at the 2018-2019 edition of the Louisville football team until probably August.

Last Year: Lamar Jackson took the entire nation by storm in 2016, setting numerous school records and scoring 51 total touchdowns to win the Heisman Trophy. Jackson’s victory marked the first time a Louisville player had won college football’s biggest individual prize.

Additionally, Jackson set the single-season record at Louisville with 1521 rushing yards. Highlights of his fantastic season included an eight-touchdown performance against Charlotte (in one half), two seven-touchdown games on the road against Marshall and Boston College and scoring five in the 63-20 win over Florida State.

Projected 2017 starter: Lamar Jackson (Jr.) (6’3″, 208 lb.)

Notes From The Spring Game

lamarspring.jpg

Louisville Football put on a semi-competitive showcase for the first time since the Citrus Bowl in the annual spring game, and as expected, reigning Heisman trophy winner Lamar Jackson did what he did best and lit up the scoreboard in front of the announced crowd of 14,000.

The junior quarterback was 19-36 through the air for 346 yards and three touchdowns, as well as a rushing score for the Red team. Second string quarterback Jawon Pass, who started for the White team, didn’t have quite the outing that Jackson did, as he threw for 20-37, as well as 4 interceptions, including a pick-six by Jaire Alexander. However, it is worth noting that 3 of his 4 picks came off of deflected balls.

Nunnsense: 10 Things To Watch At The Spring Game

On Saturday, April 15th, Louisville football will hold it’s annual Wendy’s Wonderful Kids Spring Game. This will be our last chance as fans to see the team for about 5 months.

It’s tough to determine in this glorified scrimmage just how much the team has improved or how well certain players will adapt in their new roles, whether it be as a starter or at a new position. The coaching staff will be trying different personnel packages, implementing different schemes and calling a variety of experimental plays.

Take it for what it is, a chance to see our guys in action. Even though it’s tough to gauge how great this team can be by the outcome or stats from this game, we can get a look at certain players of interest and individual position battles. Here are 10 things that I will watching with great interest.  Read the rest of this entry

Is Bobby Petrino Building An Offense Around Lamar?

(Curtis Compton/Atlanta Journal-Constitution)

(Curtis Compton/Atlanta Journal-Constitution)

Well it is well after midnight on the night that the 2016 Men’s basketball season so unfairly ended. I will try to contain myself and save that for another post. As I sit here thumbing through Twitter and planning out my schedule for the next few months I can’t help but to get excited for Spring. I go to almost every University of Louisville Baseball game and will be in attendance at the YUM for the Lady Cards if we get that far but Spring is in the air. Spring practice leads to the Spring game. The Spring game leads to summer. Summer leads to the beginning of the 2016 College Football season. How will we handle a season without a QB controversy? Will we have yet another QB controversy. How will Jawon pan out? Those are the questions on my mind. I seen an article by the Courier-Journals Steve Jones that got me excited as well. Is CBP building a team around Lamar Jackson? I would have to say the answer is yes. Did you see the WR core he just signed? I will say now that they have the potential to be the best group of all time. That’s high praise but just I feel. I will share with you the article below and you tell me how you feel. I am somehow ready for Football about 4 months too early

National Signing Day for college football is Wednesday, February 3, meaning that this is the final weekend of official visits for recruits before they sign the dotted line and choose where they will be attending school. In other words, this is a HUGE weekend for programs across the country, and Louisville is no exception. The Cards will be hosting commits, as well as recruits that have yet to make their verbal pledge anywhere. The weekend is highlighted by Jawon Pass and Desmond Fitzpatrick being on campus.

Here is a quick rundown of who will be in town this weekend. *Subject to change, as is everything with recruiting*

National Signing Day is coming up on Wednesday, February 3rd. So when your big time commits take visits to powerhouse programs like an Alabama, some people get a little nervous. Now obviously, if you listened to Cardinal Sports Zone on 93.9 The Ville this past Saturday morning, you heard me say that a recruiting expert from down south was still believing that Pass was solid to Louisville, and to not make much of his visit to ‘Bama. If you didn’t listen, and you were freaking out, well then maybe it’s lesson learned?

Steve Jones of the Courier Journal spoke to Pass’ mother (Kershena Thomas) about the visit to see Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide. Here are a few things that she had to say about the trip and where the recruitment stood with Jawon.

We have survived the “slow” part of the year and got through June and July! And even then, I think our shows were pretty good. Now we are in August, and that one hour just flies by! Today, we talked a lot about the Alabama game in 2018, the upcoming Auburn game, the fact that Auburn fans are buying our tickets, and much more. Click the soundcloud link below and give it a listen. Oh, and I love our ending music of “Today was a good day” by Ice Cube, but it was different today and it was fantastic.

QB Tylin Oden decommits from Louisville

247sports.com

This isn’t a huge surprise, but 2016 QB Tylin Oden has decommitted from Louisville, according to 247 Sports. Oden did just give a couple of interviews where he said he was still a solid commit to Louisville and was looking forward to the competition, but you really can’t blame him for looking elsewhere. UofL will have six other quarterbacks on the roster in 2016 that will be competing for playing time.
