- Prior to this football season for the University of Louisville, I posted a game by game prediction and then I asked if you wanted to pump the brakes or continue to ride the hype train. In that article I stated that I was going to ride that train all the way to a new years bowl game. I predicted that Louisville would go 11-1 losing to only Clemson and just miss the college football playoffs. Most said I was a little too optimistic and that 9 maybe 10 wins would be more realistic. Then the season started and Louisville came out absolutely destroying opponents. College GameDay came to the Ville and Louisville beat Florida State worse than Ralphie beat Scott Farkus. Lamar looked better than advertised and with the top 5 showdown at Clemson looming, I still saw that look in Bobby’s eye. That confident look and smirky devilish smile led me to believe that he knew he had something special with this team. I suddenly had plenty of company in my belief of an 11 win regular season. After coming up a yard short of certain victory in Death Valley, I no longer saw that look in Bobby’s eye and the team started trending downward with a loss of focus and preparation. You know how the rest of the regular season ended. So, it turns out Louisville finished about where the majority of the fans expected prior to the season. My question to you is are you disappointed with the Citrus bowl? It’s clear that based on the early season success and being so close to the playoffs, expectations were raised. If you go back to the Red White scrimmage and I told you that Louisville would win 9 games, play in the Citrus bowl vs LSU and have a Heisman Trophy finalist, would you be happy with that season? I would signup for that season (minus the last loss of the regular season). The potential of beating LSU to end the season can really set the tone for next season. Let’s not be disappointed but rather celebrate and support this team one last time.
Today this surfaced on Instagram and I thought it looked pretty nice. What do you think? Read the rest of this entry
I still remember the day the Yum! Center was announced. I went on the tour before it opened. I still have pictures somewhere of it while it was still under construction. The hopes were: An assist in recruiting top 10 classes and The National Championship will return to the city of Louisville. These things have come to fruition and its been almost 6 years since it opened. Is it one of the nation’s top arenas? it is on it’s way. Is it great for the city? Most people would assume the Yum was not if they went by what they heard on TV. Not true.
The University of Louisville Volleyball released their schedule for the upcoming season.

You can check the entire schedule out below.
I am a happily married man. My wife and I are a team. We go through good times and times that are not so good . No matter what life throws at us, we take comfort in knowing that we are there for each other. We always have each others back. One of the most important aspects of our relationship is knowing that we have the others support even when we are wrong. We will defend each other publicly until the end of time. The beauty of it is that we can talk about it later, in private, and tell the other where and why they were wrong and nobody gets upset. Support is a key value and it’s what keeps my wife and I strong as a team.
Card family, I have publicly defended you for as long as I can remember and I will continue to do so but now is the time we have that talk where I tell you where you were wrong. We don’t have this talk to belittle each other but rather to help us become stronger. We as a fan base should always be looking for a way to better ourselves to be the best we can be. That is why I need to ask you, why are you leaving games early?

Men’s Basketball Season Ticket Holders Get First Dibs For Women’s NCAA Tourney Tickets (Poll Included)
Sources informed CSZ around 5pm that there is a new uprising at the University of Louisville. The athletic department has decided to give the Men’s season ticket holders first dibs on the Women’s NCAA tournament action at the KFC YUM! Center. The words “livid” “absurd” & “screwed over” were used to describe the feeling of the women’s season ticket holders & team. We will talk about this more in-depth tomorrow morning on the CardinalSportsZone show on ESPN 93.9 FM THE VILLE at 10am.
We knew the court at the KFC Yum! Center would look a little different this season. If nothing else, there would be an ACC logo somewhere. It turns out that isn’t the only change! Looking at this tweet sent out by 84WHAS, it looks like the Cardinal logo at mid-court will just be the head, and not the version with the wing. Personally, I love it!
