Tonight the Cards traveled to the very hostile Joan & dominated Marshall 59-28. Despite it taking awhile to get in hand, the Cards took control and imposed their will. Lamar accounted for 7 more touchdowns tonight putting him at 25 total. The #3 Cards next face #5 Clemson Saturday night in Death Valley. Here are today’s highlights.
Today on the Cardinal Sports Zone on 93.9 The Ville the guys had a ton of football to talk. Your host Steve Rummage & social media dude Jeremy Wahman was in studio today. The guys talked Marshall, Marshall, Marshall while Steve kept looking ahead to Clemson. We all have been. The Red Ragers called in to give us the skinny on the tailgate today PLUS dropped a bombshell regarding next weeks tailgate. The guys also put out a contest for social media with the opportunity to win a Lamar Jackson issue of Sports Illustrated. Steve left about 11:30 and handed the reigns over to Jeremy as Cardinal forever Ibn Green came on to talk about his premonition from the CSZ Kickoff party. CSZ’ers LJ & Justin called in to make predictions as well. If you missed it earlier then you MUST check it out now! The Cardinal Sports Zone show is brought to you by JB’S Pub on Central alongside of Doug Budd at Red Edge Realty and homesforsaleinlouisville.net.

The fine folks at The ACC Digital Network are at it again. The accolades are piling up for Sophomore QB Lamar Jackson. If you watch TV or listen to the radio you may think this is a one man team. Lamar would not want it that way. Very humble, classy and easy going, Lamar has indeed been the spark the Cards need this year. But it brings up the question: Is this a one man team? The answer is a very resounding no. The Cards have a smothering Defense, great O-line (That felt good to say), great special teams and a balanced rushing stable and it seems like just about every wide receiver has a TD. That is balance. In this video The ACC DN gives you the video evidence to back up my claims. (facts) Enjoy!
Yes we are three games in & there’s enough footage for a Lamar Jackson Highlight Reel. The people at @UofLFootball just posted this and I’m sure you will enjoy. LJ has put on an absolute show so far this year. Here’s hoping we have many more of these in the future. Enjoy!
Today Andy Staples writes about something we hold dear to our heart & something we already knew. Lamar Jackson Is great. Andy refers to him as the new Superman. I don’t see an S on his chest but I do see points on the board. The Cards through 3 games are averaging 65 points & the basketball team averaged 68 on the season. That’s a lot of points! That’s just a quick math job with no calculator. I’m out shopping & don’t have a pencil, paper or patience. Hi Theresa! Regardless I’m certain Kelly Dickey will send me a message correcting me to the decimal. I wouldn’t expect any less. The point is Superman is ours for the moment and we should relish it.

The ACC released their players of the week awards this morning. One writer jokingly said: We will need to have two offensive players of the week, a second for other than Lamar Jackson. Maybe he wasn’t joking. It was true again this week as 4 Cards were selected out of a possible 8 categories. If this keeps up, Coach Howard’s premonition may come to fruition sooner than later.
Damion Lee liked what he seen here. A lot of people did. One very notable person who seemed to like it was Pittsburgh Steelers QB Mike Vick. He tweeted out the fact that he thought LJ was better than he was now as a sophomore. We all saw Mike do some amazing things. We’ve all seen Lamarvelous do some amazing things. The ACC Digital Network put together a video comparison. Here it is.
First things first, wow. What happened inside Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium yesterday still hasn’t fully hit me yet. The No. 2 ranked Florida State Seminoles came to Louisville having beaten the Cardinals two times in a row since Louisville joined the ACC. For the first time ever, College Gameday was in town and the city, fans, and players in Louisville uniforms were electric.
This picture was taken as Lamar Jackson & Louisville high-stepped into the fore front of the College Football landscape. Yeah I know Lamar had “The Hurdle” but that was against the Orange. Sorry Syracuse buds. Lamar and company completely decimated the #2 team in the country and everybody noticed. Even a uk fan compliment….It was a surreal day.
Andrea Adelson is the best staff writer at ESPN. If you read her work you would agree. Thankfully she covers the ACC and we as Louisville fans get to enjoy her work. You are really going to love this piece….

Here are the video Highlights from today’s thrashing of #2 FSU via The ACC Digital Network. Then after that is a video from a FSU site. Enjoy!
People have been throwing the words Heisman and Lamar Jackson around an awful lot lately. Today made that no different. Check out The ACC Digital Network video of what they are calling his Heisman moment. Enjoy!
In case you missed it….Lamar Jackson is good. The entire team is. Here is Lamar’s highlight reel from today’s historic win over #2 FSU. The highest attended game in PJCS history.
Last Time: After Louisville held a 7-6 halftime lead, Florida State responded with 35 second-half points to overpower Louisville in a 41-21 win in Tallahassee. Everett Golson led the way with 372 yards and three touchdowns, while Dalvin Cook ended up with 163 yards and two touchdowns. Lamar Jackson led the way for Louisville with a season-high 307 yards and three touchdowns, all to James Quick.
Florida State leads the overall series 14-2, with Louisville’s last win in 2002.
About the Florida State Seminoles
One of the top programs in college football, Florida State has been at or near the top of the ACC for what seems like forever.
Now 2-0 and ranked #2 in the country behind Alabama, Florida State was tabbed as one of the preseason favorites to win the ACC, and potentially adding another national championship. As usual with Florida State, this team has a lot of impressive talent and great speed on both sides of the ball. Deondre Francois inherits the starting quarterback position after Everett Golson graduated last season. Francois’s main criticism was that he was not accurate enough in high school, but he showed a lot of poise and accuracy after throwing for 419 yards and two touchdowns against a strong Ole Miss pass rush. But while it is one thing to start your first two games on a neutral field and at home, it’s another to go on your first true road game in a situation like tomorrow’s. Luckily for Francois, he will have a bevy of talented skill players around him, including Heisman candidate Dalvin Cook and a trio of superb receivers.
We all appreciate Lamar Jackson from week to week. It’s cool when we all cheer for him to succeed. When we see the pro athletes acknowledge him it’s a little cooler.
Many cameos tonight from Louisville Football during Lamar Jackson’s feature on SportsCenter. Kelsey, Bolin & Bonnafon to name a few. Lamar is as entertaining off of the field as he is on. Click on more below to watch in its entirety!
One play, 16 seconds, and 72 yards is all it took for the Cardinals to get on the scoreboard on the road against the Orange. A perfectly sold fake (just ask the cameraman) to Brandon Radcliff led to Lamar Jackson finding James Quick in stride en route to the end zone. The Louisville offense looked absolutely unstoppable at times last night. On the contrary, the offense was wildly infuriating at time as well.
“ALL RISE!!! Court is now in session. The honorable Bucket Hat King LJ tha Fiasco presiding. Please be seated and come to order”
Good morning, as most of us are waking up this Saturday morning with nothing to do but to replay last night’s events in our Cardinal crazed minds, the BHK would like to read the court his observations and suggestions from last night’s beat down of Otto and his homeboy’s up north.
