Former Louisville QB, and current Rutgers QB, Kyle Bolin, spoke about the latest investigation plaguing Louisville. In particular, Bolin offered support for Athletic Director Tom Jurich.
On Wednesday, Bolin tweeted, “I have nothing but the utmost respect for Tom Jurich and the love he has for the student-athletes at the University of Louisville.”
The Louisville transfer offered heartfelt support for his former athletics director, Tom Jurich, who has been suspended amid a nationwide investigation by the FBI into basketball recruiting bribery.
After Saturday’s 56-0 loss to Ohio State, the QB was asked to elaborate on the tweet in the post game press conference.
“Tom Jurich, first off, is an outstanding man,” Bolin said. “Everything he did at the University of Louisville, I believe and many people believe, he did what was best for the players.”
Jurich, who is on paid administrative leave, has been widely regarded as the top Athletic Director in the country.
“He was very invested in the success of the players and of the University of Louisville, and he was always very kind to me during my transfer process,” Bolin said. “He called me into his office and told me that if I ever needed anything from him in terms of possibly getting in touch with a school or anything down the road, to reach out to him.”
Bolin went on, “Having a guy like him reach out to student-athletes, especially those who are looking to take the talent they have elsewhere, that tells you about the kind of person he is.”

The University Of Louisville football team could be in this seasons college football playoff. They could also be playing in the Music City Bowl again. There is a lot of hype around this years team but there is still a lot to be proven. Will they live up to the hype? Personally, I am a believer in this years team. I have seen the team come together as one. I have seen players like Reggie Bonnafon and Kyle Bolin make decisions based on the betterment of the team and not themselves. I saw four players turn down the NFL to come back for one more chance. Usually we think in Read the rest of this entry

You have heard everyones thoughts and opinions on the spring game. If you haven’t read ours, click here (Cheap pop). It was one of the most exciting spring games that I can remember as Lamar threw 8 TD’s and amassed 1st half video game numbers. 23-28, 454 yards & 7 TD. WOW! Even though the attendance was super disappointing, the sights and action were not. Our guy Jeff Nunn came out and took some photos at the spring game and we hope that you enjoy them!
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.

Here are some interesting stats comparing UL and UK football from CFBStats.com. These stats are also filtered to get averages against POWER 5 teams only. This takes away Louisville’s game against Samford and Kentucky’s game against Charlotte. Stats in those games can be very misleading.
18 UL 325.2 ypg
50 UK 395.8 ypg
60 UL 381 ypg
75 UK 351 ypg
The common response when you tell a UK fan about these stats and how we are better is something about SOS or asking who we have played. Well……
