Cardinal Forever, James Burgess has seen his fair share of ups and downs since leaving Louisville. He has jumped from team to team in the NFL, always right on the edge of making the final roster. Until now that is, he has found his home in Cleveland. Andrew Gribble sat down with Burgess and discussed why this time is different.
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

DeVante Parker was a monster at UofL, his numbers were ridiculous every game he played. Everyone expected that momentum to continue as he entered the NFL. Unfortunately, injuries have plagued his first two years. Now he is as healthy as he has been in years and he plans on putting up real points, not just fantasy points for the Miami Dolphins. Omar Kelly with the Sun Sentinel sat down with DeVante about what to expect from him this season. You can read the full interview below.

Relive last year’s Gameday vs Florida State. It was one for the ages as Louisville curb stomped #2 Florida State by 43 points. It was the most electric crowd in PJCS history (until tomorrow). Watch Lamar ” spin in for another” and Jaire return a punt for a touchdown to put the nail in the Seminoles coffin.
Tom Jurich talked with the media and discussed the importance of having the Johnny U statue. Jurich wanted it somewhere the fans could enjoy it, but still be within the stadium walls. It seems like he nailed it with this one.
