The Barbour Shop: Never Give Up Card Fam

What we all witnessed at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium last Saturday night was a debacle. However, in the grand scheme, we all know it’s just one game. 11-1 or 10-2 still has a really nice ring to it.

This game hurt a little more than normal because we had played Clemson so close the previous 3 times. The first time, James Quick gets caught from behind and the ball is inexplicably spiked at the goal line. Next time, missed field goals killed us. Last year, the infamous James Quick play where he runs out of bounds a yard short of a first down. Heartbreak ensued.

Nunnsense: A Better Lamar, A Better Line And Better Receivers = CFB Playoffs?

IMG_6263

The question remains, can the Cards make the college football playoffs? Well, their goal is to win a national championship and let’s face it, if that isn’t every teams goal, then why are you playing?

Last year Louisville was so close to making the playoffs but fell flat on their face in the last 2 games of the regular season. You can blame the O-line, dropped passes, fumbles, effort, coaching or whatever you want but the fact remains that everyone needs to get better. No one has taken that to heart more than Lamar Jackson. Read the rest of this entry

After looking at the first edition of the depth chart, I noticed some guy named Lamar at quarterback. I hear he is pretty good so I guess there is no need to discuss that position unless you noticed that the back up is officially listed as “Puma Pass.”

Nunnsense: Keys For A Big 2017-18 Football Season

First, let’s start by defining what a big or successful season is. To me I measure success by the win total set by Las Vegas. This year the total is 9 so if we win 9 regular season games then the season is successful. However, early season success often raises our expectations. It shouldn’t but it just does – it’s human nature. * See last season.* Maybe you have a different definition of a successful season and that’s perfectly okay. I love our fans having high expectations. Our goal every season should be nothing less than a national championship but there is absolutely nothing wrong with being happy after a 10 win season.
