The Louisville Twitter-verse exploded after the CFP Poll was released. We just want a rhyme or reason. We still don’t have it. The CFPP Chairman said Michigan having three top 10 wins was the reason they didn’t move after losing to 5-4 Iowa at the time. They have three top 10 wins because the committee put Penn State, Wisconsin & Colorado a lot higher than they deserve to be solely to validate this ranking. Michigan lost their starting QB, that should be a factor. It was not. There are other problems too. It’s not just Michigan. Penalizing us for close wins & vindicating other teams positions for the same reasons. Get out of here. That awful Duke loss looks better by the week too. Don’t get me started. Whew. These guys are warriors & deserve the committee’s respect. Joey Galloway gets paid to talk about college football also. Let that sink in. Nevertheless I wanted to put up a quick post showing you the teams reactions. Think the disrespect caught their eyes?
I think they noticed. Houston….YOU have a problem….
We all have been waiting for Bobby to come back to Louisville so that we can see the 50’s and 60’s on the scoreboard. Even here he said what he would do to the scoreboards the day he talked to the fans the week he got re-hired. At every other stop year 3 is when things come together so it is not crazy to expect the same thing here…again. Coach Petrino had a ton of issues last year with injuries as well. 3 starting QB’s & an OLine that was pretty much a patchwork job. An O-Line however by the time we get to Orlando against Alabama that could be very, very good. Andrea Adelson had an opinion this morning on this topic as well. She talked about the only times a Bobby offense had averaged fewer than 30 ppg.
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*
Male High School wide receiver Keion Wakefield has just committed to the University of Louisville. He chose the Cards over Kentucky, Indiana, and Purdue. Wakefield is a 3-star player on all four major recruiting sites. He is listed around 5’11 and 175 lbs.
This weekend is shaping up to be very big for the University of Louisville football team. The Cards enter the game against rival Kentucky with an 8-3 record and are playing to improve their Bowl Game stock. The Cats are 5-6 and are playing to become bowl eligible. That makes this game exciting enough.
On top of that, Bobby Petrino and the Cards will be hosting a LOT of recruits on campus for the game. The list is pretty incredible. What makes it more impressive to me is that this is rivalry weekend. There are huge games all over the country, and these kids will be right here in the ‘Ville checking out the Cards. That says a lot.
*The “four recruiting sites” that are referenced are 247 Sports, ESPN, Rivals, and Scout.
