Nunnsense: Louisville Could Be In The 2016-17 College Football Playoff

cfp-playoff-2The 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

Louisville Football: High Octane Offense In 2016?

(Curtis Compton/Atlanta Journal-Constitution)

(Curtis Compton/Atlanta Journal-Constitution)

 

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.

Comparing the stats: Louisville vs Kentucky football

Governors-Cup-Logo-257x300

 

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.

Total Defense

18 UL    325.2 ypg

50 UK   395.8 ypg

Total Offense

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……
