CSZ Staff Makes Their 2017 Season Predictions

cszlogoskyline-white-2

 

2017 Season Predictions

Justin: 10-2. I can understand the argument for 11-1, 10-2 or even 9-3. Louisville has the talent for yet another big season, but for them to succeed and reach double-digit wins, they have to do three things; shore up the turnover problems, find a work-horse running back and have a top 30 defense (at least). If Louisville wants to take the next step, they cannot play down to their competition (ex: games against Wake Forest and Virginia).

For now, I think 10-2 is the safe prediction. Lamar will remind everyone why he is the reigning Heisman Trophy winner, and perhaps win it again. Louisville, for once, will finish their home slate undefeated but fall short twice on the road (@ Florida State and either NC State or Kentucky).

Shawn: 11-1 with close wins v. Clemson, NC State, Wake Forest and Virginia. Close loss at FSU. Every other game we should have a good chance to see Jawon Pass play.

Jeremy: 12-1 with NY6 bowl victory against Ohio State. Just outside of the playoff.

Mitch: 11-1 with a CFP berth.

Higgy: 12-0, it’s an omen Bobby always does best in his fourth year.

Katie: 11-1, I believe it will be a close game at GSU. I think the loss to FSU keeps us out of the playoffs and it becomes deja vu from the Clemson loss last year. Lamar repeats as Heisman.

Jeff Nunn: I think this is the year the Cards do not have a head scratching loss, and go 11-1. With a road loss to FSU, the Cards won’t get to play in the ACC Championship. They’ll win a New Year’s Six Bowl game and finish sixth in the final poll.

Paige Sherrard: 10-2. We drop a game to FSU and some random team we shouldn’t lose to, but it’s that game we have every season. Lamar Jackson has a stellar Heisman campaign. We go to a New Years Six bowl.

CSZ Staff Makes Prediction for the Purdue Game

cszlogoskyline-white-2

Justin: 56-31 Louisville. This will be a game the bettors will hate, because both will score a lot of points but a lot of uncertainty regarding whether or not Purdue will cover (or in this case, push). Jeff Brohm is a motivator of men, and his teams at Western Kentucky were uber-exciting. Purdue will be ready and put up a spirited effort, but their defensive issues will lead to another vintage showing for Lamar Jackson.

 

Jeremy: 63-20 Louisville. Lamar go nuts on the haters then at the end after the victory formation, None other than Stone Cold Steve Austin comes out and gives everyone in Black & Gold a stunner.

Shawn: 69-23 Louisville.  Bobby wants everyone to go home with a feeling. Lamar takes Purdue’s souls and Jawon Pass gets some clock. Defense plays well and shows flashes of dominance.

Paige: 56-14 Louisville. Lamar has six TDs. Two rushing. Four passing.

Jeff Nunn: 52-17 Louisville. Jawon Pass gets his first collegiate touchdown. Lamar has 4 TD’s. Reggie Bonnafon has over 125 combined yards and Jaire get’s an interception.

Mitch Motley: UL 59 Purdue 13

Cody: 63-14 Louisville. Bobby opens the game with a trick play touchdown

55™ (Episode 49) TBT Edition

55 season 3

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh CardNation, Don’t you Dare be sour, CLAP your hands for the podcast champ and feeeeeeeeeeeeel the POWERRRRRRRRRRRR! Sorry. If you don’t watch wrestling then you probably didn’t get that. My bad. But as you can tell I am super pumped to bring back the award-winning (I printed it out) longest running episodic post on CardinalSportsZone.com…..55.  It is kind of a throwback Thursday edition of 55. Without further adieu here are the most ridiculous, outlandish, interesting or just downright obnoxious things I have heard this week. THIS is 55…..

55 (Episode 14)

55-14

This week…..on 55…..

In honor of MY beloved Steelers hiring former Steeler great Joey Porter…and because I couldn’t find any new 55 pics…I have dedicated the title pic to you Joey Porter. Congrats! On the job not being the header on 55, or both, whatever. This week on 55 we discuss long layoffs, an all seeing being in CardNation and much, much more. Well here we go. Once again, I share with you the 55 most ridiculous things I have heard, had to debate, or just thought about this past week. This …..is….55.

1) We shall start off this week with a little Football talk. Tae Thibodeaux signed with UofL on Wednesday. The 6’1 267 pound Defensive Tackle is a much needed addition to the 2014 recruiting class. Read more here

2) Also this past weekend the Cards had a ton of visitors. Headed by David Moala, Pio Vatuvei for officials and Emmitt Smith and compamy here for junior day. Read more about Pio and Moala here

3) It was announced that all of the Spring practices will be open to the public leading up to the annual Spring game on April 11. Here is the full schedule:

spring ball

4) Henry Famurewa Tweeted this out on Saturday:

fire

5) Straight Fire………..

6) On to Basketball

7) “This has been the longest wait ever between games! At least we get to play tomorrow.”

8) “No we don’t”

9) Crap

10) Snowmageddon, patent pending, probably not, pushed UofL’s game vs storied rival Temple over to Friday night AKA Valentines Day. No worries as the Cards dispatched their rivals 82-58. Montrezl Harrell had a career high 22 points and with his 6 dunks, pulled within one dunk of the single season dunk record set by Chane Behanan. Surely he would shatter that vs Rutgers….

11)

why not

12) Because he would only get one dunk Sunday night vs storied rival Rutgers during a 102-54 stomping of Rutgers at home in the YUM! Lead by Luke Hancock’s 25 points (6 threes), Rozier’s 4 threes which led to an overall season high 16 3 point baskets made, it gave very few opportunities for Trezl to be Trezl. Worry not as the very next dunk breaks the record.

13) Also evidentally ESPN likes to call every team we play a storied rival

55 (Episode 10)

55-10

This week…..on 55…..

The tenth episode of 55. Oh how time flies. It seems like it was just yesterday that you were nothing more than just an idea in my head. I just can’t believe how fast you have grown. Before long we will celebrate your 21st. I can’t talk about this right now. Sorry. Moving on. I know what you are saying…Jeremy has finally lost it, or dude it’s just a story. You would be right either way. I am just glad that this week it was not as eventful as last week and that I will be able to take time out to make fun of Shawn once again….I feel like I neglected him. Poor lil guy. Well here we go. Once again, I share with you the 55 most ridiculous things I have heard, had to debate, or just thought about this past week. This …..is….55

1) Mark Schlabach has once again released his “Way too early Top 25” for college football this upcoming season. Check out where he ranks the Cards here

2) He also ranked Texas…..there goes his credibility with me

3) Sorry Charlie

4) Still a little salty………

5) Saturday Preston Brown & Hakeem Smith played in the East-West Shrine game. Both played well but evidently nobody cared enough to post tackling stats on any site anywhere….

6) nobody cares

7) Oh great SpongeBob is back…..anyways

8)  The University of Louisville has purchased the Cardinal Club, an 18-hole championship golf course and 212-acre complex in Simpsonville, Ky. which serves as home to the U of L men’s and women’s golf teams.  The facility will be rebranded as the University of Louisville Golf Club

9) It really was long overdue….great purchase by the University

10) Louisville midfielder Charlyn Corral was selected to the National Soccer Coaches Association of America Scholar All-America Team the NSCAA announced on Wednesday

11) Sources tell me…..Shawn wears Underroos……Finally a Shawn joke!!!!!!!

12) Sorry bud…I felt I had neglected you. Moving forward

55 (Episode 8)

55-8

This week on 55………….

Time to take a deep breath in and out. This week on 55 I had planned to do a Teddy’s top play version of 55 seeing that he declared and we thought for sure that he was the only guy we would have to mourn this week. Clearly we were wrong. It’s OK though, don’t fret, I have decided to dedicate half to Teddy and half to all the people we have said “He Gone” to this week. When I first started saying “He Gone” it was as a harmless little joke. It has since taken a bigger spotlight in the past 10 days and I will pay homage to that. So once again I share with you the 55 most ridiculous things I have heard, had to debate, or just thought about this past week.

Here…we…go…

1) Teddy Bridgewater declared for the NFL draft on Jan 1st. Teddy is projected to be the #1 pick in the NFL Draft and will be sorely missed

2) We thought we will be ok without Teddy, Coach and Will can get us through this rough time

3) teddycool

4) #HeGone

5) Calvin Pryor declared for the NFL Draft last Monday. He is one of the hardest hitting guys I have ever seen here. He is projected to go late first, early second round in some publications. Congrats CP3

6) Calvin Pryor

7) #HeGone

8) Damian Copeland bypassed his 6th year of eligibility to go pro on Jan 2. I do not see any projections with him in it, but he is a consummate pro talent-wise and I do expect him to be playing on Sundays.

9) Damian Copeland Keg of Nails

10) #HeGone

11) Let’s go to basketball for our He Gone-a-thon for a moment. Chane Behanan was booted off the team for conduct detrimental to the team and is currently in Houston getting help and rehab from renowned basketball figure John Lucas. Chane, we at CardinalSportsZone.com as well as all of CardNation wish you the very best.
