Nunnsense: Petrino Is On The Verge Of Taking Louisville To Another Level Of Respect

Bobby Petrino is revered as a top-level college football coach. He has the reputation of an offensive genius and has earned the national respect of his coaching peers and everyone associated with college football. He was just about to take himself, along with the University of Louisville football program, to that level in 2007 but in January of 2007 his abrupt and selfish departure to the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons cost both Petrino and the University that perceived national respect they both so strongly coveted. The Petrino led Cards had just finished the 2006 season with a 12-1 record, an Orange Bowl victory and a school-high ranking of #3 in the country after beating the then #3 team WVU in the Blackout game at Papa Johns Cardinal Stadium. On the night before my birthday, Louisville had 1 heartbreaking loss at Rutgers that most likely costs them a spot in the national championship game (I still hate Ito). Together, Petrino and Louisville seemed to be headed for a constant spot near the top of the college football rankings. But it wasn’t meant to be. Well, at least not then.

Nunnsense: Rick Pitino Said It And He Might Be Right

An article published by The Sporting News in June of 2015, talked about Louisville players in the NBA and the lack of staying power despite collegiate success. The article says “Terrence Williams, Samardo Samuels and Chris Smith had their shots. Peyton Siva, the point guard on that championship team, is stuck in the NBA Development League. Francisco Garcia, Pitino’s most successful NBA product, who played 10 years in the league, was waived by the Rockets this season. Of Pitino’s drafted players, three remain in the league: Gorgui Dieng in Minnesota, Russ Smith in Memphis and Earl Clark in Brooklyn. The latter two played a combined 158 minutes last season, while Dieng was a solid role player and occasional starter for the Timberwolves” The article was published prior to the 2015 NBA draft and it wasn’t trying to belittle Louisville but rather it was saying that Montrezl Harrell and Terry Rozier are the type of players that have staying power in the NBA and they are (as the title of the article states) hoping to rebuild the path to the NBA for Louisville players.

Nunnsense: New Hype/Highlight Football Video

I miss PJCS. I miss tailgating. I miss the sound of the band. I miss DJ K-Dogg. I miss the intro video. I miss the train horn. I miss the inebriated young man in front of my seat that refuses to sit down because “this isn’t Commonwealth Stadium.” I miss my beer vendor. I miss giving high fives to the closest 20 people around me after every score.  I miss the Ladybirds. I miss seeing Robert Patrick Petrino giving the business to a referee after a bad call. I miss the incredible student athletes competing at the highest level in an effort to bring home a victory. I miss all of you. I miss everything about the game day experience at Papa Johns Cardinal Stadium.  If you are like me then you are itching for some Cardinal football right about now. In 2 short months the season will finally get under way. Until then all we have are memories of last season and hope for this one. I put together a hype/highlight video for you to enjoy……..

Nunnsense: Louisville Football Players To Watch & Highlight Video

usa-today-9025859.0-002Football season is still over two months away but it’s on my mind everyday. I recently received an email for the University ticket office that stated my request for Clemson tickets was approved and would be mailed at the end of August. I felt like a six-year-old on Christmas morning upon reading that email. Football has always been my first love even though I have come to enjoy Cardinal softball since I started covering it for CSZ. You should really go to a softball game. It’s a great time and you will be pleasantly surprised with the product on the field. Read the rest of this entry

Nunnsense: Baseball, Pitino And Ali

Louisville_Cardinals_wordmark

  • So what’s been going on? Anything happening in the sports world?  Of course not. It’s not basketball season. Wait! What? Oh, I almost forgot. We are fans of The University Of Louisville and we have a sport to cheer for all year round. As you may have heard the 2016 College World Series is about to get started and the Number 2 overall seed, University of Louisville, is two wins away from another trip to Omaha. Louisville will face UC Santa Barbara on Saturday, Sunday and Monday (if necessary) in a best of three series at Jim Patterson Stadium. The games on Saturday (6/11) and Sunday (6/12) will start at noon. I don’t think there will be a game on Monday but if somehow it needs to be played, the game time will be announced after the game is deemed necessary. Louisville is 36-1 at home this year so the fact that I don’t think they will lose 2 out 3 shouldn’t seem crazy but you never know. Good Luck Cards. See ya in Omaha!

Muhammad Ali: A Champion of Boxing, Life and Peace

There are few men in a generation, perhaps in the history of humanity, that live a life so large and grand, it’s almost impossible to fathom how great they were. And no matter how many times you hear the same stories over and over again, it always stands the test of time.

One Cassius Clay, who we would later revere as Muhammad Ali, became a figure in such high regard. Anyone that grew up in Louisville, KY like I did has heard fabled tales from family members and friends, almost as if he was mythical like he was Louisville’s proverbial Loch Ness monster.

**This post is doing so well, we bumped it**

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!

Nunnsense: Spring Game Attendance Controversy

Photo: Jeffrey M. Nunn

On April 16th 2016, I took my son to Papa Johns Cardinal Stadium for the annual football Spring Game. The weather was absolutely perfect. Early reports from the local talking heads and many people around the program were that the attendance would likely eclipse the record of approximately 33,000. With the weather forecast being phenomenal, the rumblings of how Lamar Jackson had improved by leaps and bounds as a passer and the overflow of positivity from the victory over Texas A&M in the Music City Bowl, I too expected a record crowd.
