Nunnsense: Pump The Brakes Or Ride The Hype Train?

Papa Johns

One week from today all the talk and speculation of what this years version of  Louisville football has to offer will be over. Actual football will be played and I am giving you this week to decide if you want to continue with all the hype or if you want to pump the brakes a bit. I understand either way but if you decide to jump off the hype train please don’t try to jump back on when we take down FSU because you will be met with more resistance than a Miami defensive back from a Mario Urrutia stiff arm.  Read the rest of this entry

Is The ACC Only About Clemson And FSU? Not If UofL Has A Say

COVER2016

Louisville has competed in the ACC for two years now. They are 0-4 vs. Clemson and Florida State. Louisville is perceived as the best of the rest in the ACC but hopefully things will change this year. Jon Solomon wrote this article for CBS Sports talking about how Louisville could change that perception this year. In the article, Bobby Petrino says “Our offense needs to get to the point that every time we take the field we expect to score, because that’s the tradition of Louisville offenses.” With that being said, I love our chances.  Click on the link below for the full article.

Here are some pictures of the veterans practice for Friday August 5th. The team looked eager to get to work today. It appears to me that Lamar throws the ball much harder this year and Trumaine Washington made an interception that got a big reaction from the fans that made it out.  It was a great practice. Looking forward to September 1st.  Read the rest of this entry

Lamar Jackson can run. Lamar Jackson can pass. I don’t think there isn’t much Lamar can’t do on the football field. Off the field he is pretty cool too. He handled my niece very well considering she wasn’t nearly as excited as my brother to meet him.
