Jaire Alexander has received another preseason All American nod. While we are thrilled Alexander is getting the recognition he deserves, we are confused why he is the only Cardinal on the list. The reigning Heisman trophy winner, Lamar Jackson, has yet again been left off another list. Check out the Sport Illustrated’s full team below.

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.
Human highlight reel, Lamar Jackson, had a Saturday morning spot on Sports Center this past weekend.

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.
Here is a short video where Scott Van Pelt and Bob Griese talk about why people are sleeping on the reigning Heisman trophy winner.
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.

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 am not sure anyone is more excited to see what Lamar Jackson will do this season, than his head coach.

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.
The odds came out for the 2017 Heisman Trophy from Bovada & the 2016 winner is not the favorite. Shocked? I’m not. After the 3 game slide to the end of the 2016 year I already thought they would do whatever it took to make sure he doesn’t win next year. It is almost impossible from a statline point of view for him to improve. We will see. Here are this years odds:
Odds to Win the 2017 Heisman Trophy
Baker Mayfield (QB Oklahoma) 11/2
JT Barrett (QB Ohio State) 6/1
Lamar Jackson (QB Louisville) 7/1
Sam Darnold (QB USC) 9/1
Saquon Barkley (RB Penn State) 10/1
Jake Browning (QB Washington) 10/1
Trace McSorley (QB Penn State) 10/1
This years National title game hasn’t even been played yet & the odds for next years winners are already out:

Lamar Jackson put up numbers in a regular season that we have never seen before. Before the season started, we had high expectations based on his Music City Bowl performance, but nobody expected what we all witnessed. Coming into the first game of this season vs Charlotte, sophomore quarterback Lamar Jackson had not started two consecutive games. Despite that fact, Lamar tied an ACC single game record with 6 passing touchdowns and tied the ACC record of 8 touchdowns responsible for. He would then go on to set another ACC single game record with 610 total yards vs Syracuse. Read the rest of this entry
