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
Coach Nick Petrino, Reggie Bonnafon and Robbie Bell spoke with the media after practice today.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Outside of a 34-point fourth quarter in last season’s football matchup, Louisville and Wake Forest have played a couple of games down to the wire.
The Demon Deacons led the Cardinals last year 12-3 at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium before Louisville exploded for a 44-12 win. In 2015, Lamar Jackson threw two touchdown passes and Louisville forced five turnovers in the second half in a 20-19 victory over Wake Forest in its first trip to Winston-Salem.
In their first season in the Atlantic Coast Conference, the Cardinals battled to a 20-10 win at home in 2014.
“Wake Forest is a tough team,” quarterbacks coach Nick Petrino said. “It seems like it’s the same guys we’ve been playing for the last couple of years. They have the same guys on the defensive line and the same guys in the secondary. They are a well-coached team, and their two defensive ends are two of the best in the ACC.” Read the rest of this entry

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Something will have to give when No. 14 Louisville hosts No. 3 Louisville on Saturday night at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium in front of a nationally televised audience on ABC.
The Cardinals, with the No. 5 offense in the country, face the Tigers, which possesses the No. 2 total defense. The Tigers are coming off an impressive performance last weekend, sacking Auburn quarterbacks 11 times in a 14-6 win at Death Valley.
I had the pleasure of attending U of L football media day and I took my camera. We at CSZ had the privilege of talking with all the coaches and many of the student athletes. We will be posting all the interviews very soon. I can’t seem to put into words what this experience was like, so you can just browse through the pics I snapped and try to get a feel for yourself. I also took a few pics of the progress of Papa John’s Cardinal stadium expansion. I hope you enjoy… Read the rest of this entry
