The day started with the jersey ceremony for Card forever Anthony Floyd. Then Card forever, Eric Wood, spelled out the C-A-R-D-S cheer. Louisville scored early and looked good because Boston College entered the day scoring 16.3 points per game and were 121st in the country in scoring before Saturday. But the Card defense gave up 45 points, 555 total yards (364 of those rushing yards). AJ Dillon ran for more yards (272) than any other Louisville opponent had before. Lamar was 19 of 39 passing for 332 yards and 2 passing touchdowns. He rushed for 180 yards on 22 carries and scored 3 rushing touchdowns. Dez Fitzpatrick finished with 7 catches , 127 yards and a touchdown.

Here are some pictures of the day…

Cardinal Football Players Supporting Each Other

The last few weeks have been rough. There’s no hiding it. Today, some of the Cardinal football players sent out some tweets reminding everyone why we cheer for them and why they deserve our unwaivering support.

Lamar Jackson Highlights From Boston College

Unfortunately, UofL lost the football game against Boston College. It hurt. It was terrible. However, there was just a glimmer of goodness in all the gloom. That glimmer was Lamar Jackson.

Lamar once again put up insane numbers, as he nearly always does. He threw for 332 yards and 2 TDs and rushed for 180 yards and 3 TDs. That’s a total of 512 total yards and 5 TDs by himself!

Lamar is a special talent that we UofL fans may never see the likes of again. Take a look at his highlights below courtesy of the ACC Digital Network and GoCards YouTube accounts. Enjoy the art that Lamar has wrought on the field.

Louisville vs Boston College: Postgame Thoughts

After allowing what I saw at PJCS yesterday to digest, I feel stable enough to finally write about it. Louisville entered yesterday’s game against Boston College as a 19-point favorite at home, but walked away with a 45-42 loss.

The talk all week had been, “I don’t think we’ll lose, but I’ll need to see something that shows me corrections have been made and glaring problems have been fixed to have hope on the road at FSU next week.” I don’t think you could find a fan yesterday that honestly believed we’d lose, let alone, allow the 114th ranked offense in the nation to put up 555 total yards and 45 points. But obviously, all of that happened.

Nunnsense| Louisville Can Make The Orange Bowl With A Little Help From The Defense

M66n10yj

I made it no secret that I was happy with the departure of defensive coordinator,Todd Grantham. I think he did a good job for most of his tenure but he reached a point where the defense no longer was getting better even with NFL talent. I mean, if I could figure out that he was going to blitz on every third down then so could any division one coach.

I also made it no secret that the hiring of Peter Sirmon was questionable in my opinion. Not because he wasn’t a good coach but the fact that we didn’t know if he was or not. I believe that being a coach at Louisville is no longer a stepping stone job but rather a destination job. Therefore I felt we didn’t need to hire an up and coming young coach who needed to prove himself. We needed to go out and get the best proven guy that we could.

Many people blasted Sirmon from the start because of his stats from his last job at Mississippi State. I decided to reserve judgement and give him a chance to prove himself.

Well, it’s only been six games but I’m seeing trends that I don’t like. I want to give him the benefit of the doubt because he has not had the services of his preseason All-American, Jaire Alexander, due to injury and Drew Bailey has been injured as well. Now linebacker Stacy Thomas is out. But that is all part of it and he needs to make adjustments to play with the personnel he has.  Read the rest of this entry

Lamar Highlights Against NC State

Lamar Jackson

Lamar Jackson can’t do it all, but he sure tries his best to do so. Here are his highlights from this week’s game against NC State.

This guy is re-writing the University of Louisville record books as well as most of the ACC records. He is the reigning Heisman trophy winner but most importantly, he is a Louisville Cardinal. Here are some pics from this season… Read the rest of this entry

Jackson’s Record Breaking Night

Lamar Jackson

While the score wasn’t what UofL fans wanted, there were positives to come out of the game last night. Lamar Jackson had a record breaking game against NC State. Kelly Dickey (@RealCardGame) detailed what records Lamar broke.

Midseason Highlight Photo Gallery

The football season is at the halfway point. The Cards are 4-2 and still have 6 very winnable games remaining in the regular season. I think it’s time to look back at some of CSZ’s best photo’s from this season including a few from media day. Enjoy… Read the rest of this entry

Jackson Makes FBS History

Lamar Jackson

Tonight, Lamar Jackson became the first ever underclassman to record 3,000 rushing yards and 7,000 passing. He is only the 6th player ever to reach this milestone.

Louisville @ NC State: Postgame Recap

It has been a rough time for the University of Louisville over the past two weeks. Last night’s game, unfortunately, followed the same script. Louisville’s defense continued to struggle, the offense never appeared to establish a rhythm, and the same fundamental miscues, going back to last season, were once again painfully obvious. NC State was the better team last night, and the final score of 39-25 in favor of the Wolfpack clearly shows that.

Louisville allowed an abysmal 520 yards of offense (to Louisville’s 470). Once again, tackling was a huge issue, as was defending the pass (367 passing yards allowed). Lamar Jackson finished 26/47 passing for 354 yards with 1 touchdown and a pick-6 that put the game away for good. Lamar also rushed for 73 yards on 19 carries and 2 touchdowns. Dez Fitzpatrick reeled in 10 passes for 134 yards and his counterpart Seth Dawkins had 5 catches for 133 yards and the lone receiving touchdown for the Cardinals.

After the defense got a stop with about 3 minutes left to go, Louisville had an opportunity late in the game to put together a tying drive. As mentioned above, that’s when the most untimely of errors occurred and a tipped pass was hauled in by an NC State LB and returned for a touchdown, putting the game permanently out of reach. Linebacker Stacy Thomas went out with an injury, as did Running Back Malik Williams, sending thoughts to both of them.

Once you’re at the bottom, the only way you can go is up. The past 2 weeks for everyone involved with UofL have been weeks we wish we could move on from and forget forever. Keep the faith, CardNation, things will get better.

Go Cards!
