DSC_2282

It is no secret that the football world is once again, sleeping on Lamar Jackson. Leading up to his Junior season, the 2016 Heisman winner has been on very few preseason lists. While Lamar shrugs it off, the fans and his teammates know they will all regret it soon enough. Yahoo!’s Pat Forde sat down with Lamar and company last week and talked about this upcoming season. You will see below why Forde believes Lamar Jackson is the most disrespected Heisman winner of all time.

All of us have seen the Top 5 lists that exclude Lamar Jackson. Whether it be Top 5 College Players or Top 5 Quarterbacks. We have also seen the preseason rankings which have UofL as high as 14 and as low as 17. Many of us fans feel the team as a whole. and Lamar in particular, are being disrespected.

There are obvious flaws we saw with the team at the end of last year. An offensive line that regressed badly. A defense that suddenly couldn’t stop the run or the big pass play. Lamar Jackson looking quite human with inaccurate throws, bad decisions on the read option, and bad decisions in general.

My First Time: UofL Football Media Day 2017

On Saturday, UofL Football held Media day 2017. They take the team picture, you eat breakfast with the entire media then comes the press conference & individual interviews with players & coaches. It had been Charlie Strongs final season since I had been there due to CSZ on 93.9. I missed it so much. I was excited to be there but not only for myself. I brought the newbys with me. Katie Goben & Cody Higdon. They both have been with the site less than a month & jumped at the opportunity to cover it. I brought old ironsides Jeff Nunn as well. He shared his thoughts on media day via photos. Katie & Cody had a great time during their first of many Media Days. Here is what they had to say about their first times…Enjoy!

I had the pleasure of attending U of L football media day and I took my camera. We at CSZ had the privilege of talking with all the coaches and many of the student athletes.

As the world waits to see if he will become the second person in history to repeat as a Heisman winner, we have this amazing highlight video from Bobby to keep us occupied.

Nunnsense: A Better Lamar, A Better Line And Better Receivers = CFB Playoffs?

IMG_6263

The question remains, can the Cards make the college football playoffs? Well, their goal is to win a national championship and let’s face it, if that isn’t every teams goal, then why are you playing?

Last year Louisville was so close to making the playoffs but fell flat on their face in the last 2 games of the regular season. You can blame the O-line, dropped passes, fumbles, effort, coaching or whatever you want but the fact remains that everyone needs to get better. No one has taken that to heart more than Lamar Jackson. Read the rest of this entry

After looking at the first edition of the depth chart, I noticed some guy named Lamar at quarterback. I hear he is pretty good so I guess there is no need to discuss that position unless you noticed that the back up is officially listed as “Puma Pass.”

Lamar Jackson is one of the best things that has ever happened to the University of Louisville Football team. Scratch that. With the 2016 Heisman Trophy in his trophy case, you could argue that he is THE best. You wouldn’t know it from listening to his off-season critics AKA the armchair quarterbacks.

“Jackson asked Vick to dial back his assessment of him last year after Vick tweeted last fall that Jackson is “five times better than what I was at Virginia Tech.” Jackson revealed his request of Vick on Thursday at the ACC Kickoff, per ESPN’s David Hale.”

This is a great article. It also gives you a couple of videos as well as talking about ACC media day. It says that Syracuse coach Dino Babers reached out and put his hand on Jackson’s arm, per ESPN, and said “I just had to touch you to make sure you’re human.” Check out the article below… Read the rest of this entry

Nunnsense: Keys For A Big 2017-18 Football Season

First, let’s start by defining what a big or successful season is. To me I measure success by the win total set by Las Vegas. This year the total is 9 so if we win 9 regular season games then the season is successful. However, early season success often raises our expectations. It shouldn’t but it just does – it’s human nature. * See last season.* Maybe you have a different definition of a successful season and that’s perfectly okay. I love our fans having high expectations. Our goal every season should be nothing less than a national championship but there is absolutely nothing wrong with being happy after a 10 win season.
