University of Louisville Football held its annual National Signing Day party at the Brown and Williamson club inside Papa Johns Cardinal Stadium on Wednesday. The party wasn’t as exciting this year due to the first year of the new early signing period that took place on December 20th. Louisville signed 19 of their 22 member signing class on the early signing day. So there were only 3 players that signed on the day of the party. 2 signed early in the day while 1 player signed just as the party came to a close. Coach Petrino read the text that confirmed the signing as his last words to the crowd. The atmosphere was very upbeat despite awkwardness of having 2 signing days. Several of the players that committed early are already on campus and were introduced to the crowd last night. You can view a full list complete with breakdowns of each players that signed right here. Read the rest of this entry
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Every football program needs a ray or two of sunshine now and again. For the Louisville football team, it’s coming in the form preseason All-American Jaire Alexander and one unusual element: rain.
The Cardinals are coming off a tough loss at NC State, with a stout defensive team in Boston College in waiting. Louisville has spent plenty of time since the Thursday night contest watching film and working in practice to correct those mistakes.
Practice wasn’t going to be easy, especially given the forecast, but that didn’t stop the Cardinals from picking up momentum heading into another league contest.
Cardinal Sports Zone sat down with secondary coach Lorenzo Ward. He talks about how he got the nickname” Whammy,” how good Jaire Alexander is, how 2 of the newcomers are already running on the second team, as well as the time he played against Louisville in the Fiesta bowl and his recollection of Louisville QB, Browning Nagle.
