All of the events and fan-friendly entertainment is awesome but I’m just here for some football. This will be your first and last look at the 2018-2019 edition of the Louisville football team until probably August. Because the public has not been allowed to any of the spring practices, you will have to watch closely for the answers to all your questions and try to take in as much as you can. Here are the top 10 things that I will be looking for or paying attention to… Read the rest of this entry

Last Year: Lamar Jackson took the entire nation by storm in 2016, setting numerous school records and scoring 51 total touchdowns to win the Heisman Trophy. Jackson’s victory marked the first time a Louisville player had won college football’s biggest individual prize.
Additionally, Jackson set the single-season record at Louisville with 1521 rushing yards. Highlights of his fantastic season included an eight-touchdown performance against Charlotte (in one half), two seven-touchdown games on the road against Marshall and Boston College and scoring five in the 63-20 win over Florida State.
Projected 2017 starter: Lamar Jackson (Jr.) (6’3″, 208 lb.)

One of the first recruits to commit for the class of 2017, Malik Cunningham is an explosive dual threat quarterback out of Park Crossing HS in Montgomery, Alabama. His senior year, he lead Park Crossing HS to a 13-1 record, with their lone loss coming in the state semifinal game. During that season, he threw for almost 3,000 yards while rushing for over 1,000 yards. Through the air, he threw 30 touchdowns to 8 interceptions, while on the ground he ran for 19 touchdowns while fumbling the ball only once. Essentially, if you need a touchdown, let Malik Cunningham work his magic. He is precisely the kind of explosive playmaker that Bobby Petrino loves, and has shades of Lamar Jackson in his game. Him and Tre’Sean Smith were very active and vocal during the recruiting cycle in getting fellow recruits to come check out Louisville.

It would be no shock if the Cards got a commitment from 4 Star Dual Threat QB Malik Cunningham this weekend at some point. And it wasn’t because Malik committed today after the spring game. The 6 foot tall QB from Montgomery, Alabama has been high on the Cards for some time now. Current talent evaluator and former Cards Receiver Lavell Boyd interviewed him at his regional P-300 camp in Montgomery last weekend and rated him 4 stars. He got some exclusive footage for the site. Since I am an admin for that website as well, Lavell allowed me to share the footage so I hope you all enjoy!
