LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Tickets for the University of Louisville’s 2017 NCAA Super Regional at Jim Patterson Stadium against Kentucky are officially sold out.
If you already purchased tickets, Jim Patterson Stadium ticket windows will open at 10:30 a.m., on Friday. Will Call will be located near the main gates of the stadium. Player Pass List entrance will be located at the third base gate.
It was discovered on Tuesday evening that Louisville hosted 5 Star SF Brian Bowen on a campus visit. Bowen, a McDonald’s All-American, was thought by many to be a solid Michigan State lean but after the return of Miles Bridges who opted to not enter the NBA draft deadline, it appears he is still searching for a school to land his services.
Louisville would join a list of schools trying to sign Bowen. So far he holds offers from such schools as Arizona, Michigan State, NC State, Texas, and UCLA just to name a few. The SF position at Louisville is pretty stacked with the return of Deng Adel and V.J. King although Pitino has hinted he will primarily use Adel as a shooting guard. Add Dwayne Sutton to the mix and you have some nice depth at the 3 spot.
We here at CSZ will be keeping a close eye on this story. Louisville is already a projected top 10 team next season and this would do nothing but bolster that claim. “Crootin” remains a funny business. …
It’s been awhile but the time folks at CSZ have come back to the podcast airwaves. Jeremy, Matt McGavic & Justin Krueger break down the upcoming NCAA Baseball Tournament. LJ was nice enough to come in and reluctantly produce it. We talked about the bracket overall, UofL’s pod & ppl mad online about Dan McDonnell. Is it Omaha or bust for the Cards? Tune in to hear what we think.

Louisville was named the #7 National seed & just as we assumed were matched up with Lexington in the Supers. The Cardinals will play Fri-Sun schedule. Here is the full slate of games in the Louisville regional.
The ACC Baseball Tournament starts tomorrow at Louisville Slugger Field. The Cards don’t play until Thursday night at 7pm vs ND. Today U of L Baseball had a press conference previewing that tournament. Enjoy!
This morning the complete schedule for the first ever ACC Tournament at Louisville Slugger Field was announced. Louisville is your #1 overall seed by winning the regular season by 1/2 game over Coastal Division Champion UNC. The Cards play Thursday at 7pm vs Notre Dame then Friday at 3 vs FSU.
So here’s the deal. The winner of each pool advances to a 4 team elimination bracket. Here’s how those 4 teams are determined. Each team plays both teams in their pods. The team with the best record will win that pod. If there is a tie with the same record the team with the highest ACC winning percentage advances to bracket play. Which would be the highest seeded team per Kelly Dickey. If you have any questions about the ACC Tournament feel free to contact us on Twitter at @CardSportsZone @GeneralWasp @kruegermania or @Jeremy_CSZ or on Facebook at Cardinal Sports Zone.
Despite the gloomy circumstances & ultimately the cancellation of game 3 vs FSU, the Cardinals still honored their seniors. Last year the theme of departing players was the draft. This year the theme of the Senior class is dependability. Lyman, Taylor,Summers & Sparger are the glue guys that every team needs to be champions. That was proven year after year. Congrats to all of our Seniors!
Here’s Dan the Man after today’s cone from behind 6-4 win over the #7 Tigers from Clemson.
It’s a return home for former Ohio State defensive back Rodjay Burns, as the Louisville native has decided to transfer to U of L.
Burns, who played at Trinity HS in Louisville, made the announcement on his Instagram account today. He played in six games as a true freshman for the Buckeyes last season, recording an interception return for a touchdown against Bowling Green. Burns was originally committed to Louisville in the 2016 class, before flipping to the Buckeyes at the last second.
Before starting his collegiate career, Burns excelled as a two-way star for the Shamrocks, finishing as a runner-up for Mr. Football in the state his senior season.
After sitting out the 2017 season, Burns will have three seasons of eligibility remaining.
The ACC Digital Network spends a lot of time on each school in the conference. I may be a little biased but I think they do their best work on their Louisville stuff.
They focused today on Louisville’s solid receiving corp. Louisville has always been known for having great crops of receivers. The acronym A.F.R.O.S. was coined here. America’s Finest Receivers On Saturday was born in the mid 90’s by name and has been a traditiona ever since. Today @theACCDN shows you this year’s A.F.R.O.S.

Card forever and current Pittsburgh Steeler, Keith Kelsey, posted this video of him training for the NFL draft on his Facebook page.
In a longer than usual week, the Louisville Cardinals handled it with ease as they went 5-0 against the Northern Kentucky Norse & Toledo Rockets as well as the Eastern Kentucky Colonels in a rain-delay makeup game. The perfect week put them at 38-6 on the season, and their conference record of 17-4 remained the same as they had the week off from conference play.
