55 (Season 2 Episode 1)



It is finally that time of year! No silly, not football season, it is time for my weekly episodic series I affectionately name 55. First off I want to send a HUGE Shoutout to Tim Haag and Birds Nest Graphics for designing the new and permanent logo for 55. You can follow Tim at @UofLBirdsNest. I decided a permanent logo would help establish a familiar brand. If you guys find the number 55 in weird places still feel free to send them to me as they will still be included somehow. Without further adieu…..

This week on 55……….

We talk the promised land, We catch you up on a ton of things that have happened since I’ve been gone. (Please no Kelly Clarkson jokes) and a lot of other things that may or may not be of importance to you. I will bank on the fact they WILL. No pun intended. We will go over tonight’s huge Blackout. (The one on the field) So here we go, here are the 55 most ridiculous things I have heard, had to debate, or just thought about this past week. This ………55.

Cards Go Wild In The 2nd Half Sunday, Win 4-2



The #16th ranked University of Louisville Men’s Soccer were on a 2 game losing streak so they needed to come out Sunday and put CSU Bakersfield away early to get some of their mojo back. They did the most logical thing one can think of when you have lost two in a down 2-0 at halftime. That would change quick. After a quick 50 seconds into the second half, the Cards got loose after Ockford scored a goal and 13 minutes later Ivan Gutierrez evened the score at 2 with his first career goal. Scoring cooled down for awhile until Zack Foxhoven scored the game winner 85 minutes in and Marlon Hairston added an insurance goal 88:59 in by knocking one in from deep right side. The Cards go to Orlando for their Athletic Conference opener at UCF on Saturday at 7 p.m., ET.

Go Cards!
