Nunnsense| Louisville Can Make The Orange Bowl With A Little Help From The Defense

M66n10yj

I made it no secret that I was happy with the departure of defensive coordinator,Todd Grantham. I think he did a good job for most of his tenure but he reached a point where the defense no longer was getting better even with NFL talent. I mean, if I could figure out that he was going to blitz on every third down then so could any division one coach.

I also made it no secret that the hiring of Peter Sirmon was questionable in my opinion. Not because he wasn’t a good coach but the fact that we didn’t know if he was or not. I believe that being a coach at Louisville is no longer a stepping stone job but rather a destination job. Therefore I felt we didn’t need to hire an up and coming young coach who needed to prove himself. We needed to go out and get the best proven guy that we could.

Many people blasted Sirmon from the start because of his stats from his last job at Mississippi State. I decided to reserve judgement and give him a chance to prove himself.

Well, it’s only been six games but I’m seeing trends that I don’t like. I want to give him the benefit of the doubt because he has not had the services of his preseason All-American, Jaire Alexander, due to injury and Drew Bailey has been injured as well. Now linebacker Stacy Thomas is out. But that is all part of it and he needs to make adjustments to play with the personnel he has.  Read the rest of this entry

Nunnsense | Is Tyra The Answer Or The Relief Pitcher?

If you listened to the introductory press conference of acting athletic director Vince Tyra and you were not impressed, then I’m not sure what will ever impress you. He said everything we wanted to hear and he said it with passion and confidence. For many, that was their first encounter with him because he said he keeps a low profile. He needed to make a great first impression – and he did. Most of us were sold right there on the spot.

But are you buying that he is the future? I believe that he could definitely be what the University needs to re-establish the athletic brand back to where it should be and where the fans expect it to be. Read the rest of this entry

Nunnsense: The Aftermath Of A Loss

Photo: Courier-Journal

The game is over. We lost. Time to lick our wounds and move on. It is not time, however, to start blaming people and second guessing every decision. It’s our jobs as fans to support our team through the ups and downs. Yes, you have the right to voice your opinion and express your frustration – I get it. But is that really helping or is it just giving the optics of a program that lacks full support?

I think we all need to take a step back, take a deep breath and gain a little perspective. This game counts as one loss no matter how bad it hurts. There is no shame in losing to the #3 team in the nation. With any luck, this will be that one game a year that, for unknown reasons, the team doesn’t quite show up. We can still go 11-1 or 10-2 and possibly make the Orange bowl.  Read the rest of this entry

I’m going to keep it short and sweet this week because you need to start getting your cooler packed for Tailgate this Saturday.

When I was growing up, if you said Cardinal Stadium, the first thing that came to mind is “that is where Trinity and St.X  play their annual football game.” The second thing that came to mind is “that is where the Louisville Redbirds play baseball.” The third thing that came to mind is “that is where they have concerts for the state fair.” Louisville football was more of an afterthought.  Read the rest of this entry

Nunnsense: Louisville vs Purdue Was A Win-Win

Robbie Bell

It appears that most everyone survived the trip to Indy. So now that we are past opening weekend and back to our regular work week hustle, we can take a quick look back at the victory over Purdue before we start to focus on North Carolina and their stupid basketball logo on a football helmet ( I’ll stop there before I say something to make Jordan cry).

I’m a positive, glass half full kind of guy. Therefore, I didn’t find any real long-term negatives from this victory. Read the rest of this entry
