I miss PJCS. I miss tailgating. I miss the sound of the band. I miss DJ K-Dogg. I miss the intro video. I miss the train horn. I miss the inebriated young man in front of my seat that refuses to sit down because “this isn’t Commonwealth Stadium.” I miss my beer vendor. I miss giving high fives to the closest 20 people around me after every score.  I miss the Ladybirds. I miss seeing Robert Patrick Petrino giving the business to a referee after a bad call. I miss the incredible student athletes competing at the highest level in an effort to bring home a victory. I miss all of you. I miss everything about the game day experience at Papa Johns Cardinal Stadium.  If you are like me then you are itching for some Cardinal football right about now. In 2 short months the season will finally get under way. Until then all we have are memories of last season and hope for this one. I put together a hype/highlight video for you to enjoy……..

Nunnsense: Spring Game Attendance Controversy

On April 16th 2016, I took my son to Papa Johns Cardinal Stadium for the annual football Spring Game. The weather was absolutely perfect. Early reports from the local talking heads and many people around the program were that the attendance would likely eclipse the record of approximately 33,000. With the weather forecast being phenomenal, the rumblings of how Lamar Jackson had improved by leaps and bounds as a passer and the overflow of positivity from the victory over Texas A&M in the Music City Bowl, I too expected a record crowd.

U of L Football Notes From Today’s Scrimmage

The Louisville Football team held a 161 play scrimmage this morning in the Trager Indoor Practice facility. As we are 1 week away from the spring game at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium, the Cards hope to put on a show at 1pm on Saturday. The offense is what I have been the most excited to se and todays results are just a flash of what we will see. The WR/TE corp are my favorite because face it, I was a tight end and I appreciate what these guys have to do. Here are some of the key points from todays scrimmage:

Wide receivers Jamari Staples, Traveon Samuel and Ja’Quay Savage had two big touchdown receptions, while wide receiver James Quick also added a touchdown catch.  Tight ends Micky Crum and Charles Standberry also scored on Saturday.

“We went a long time this morning,” head coach Bobby Petrino said after Saturday’s 12th practice. “It was a good scrimmage. It was back-and-forth again. We look forward to the spring game next Saturday. The whole week will be a lot of fun with two practices and the game on Saturday.

Nunnsense: I Love My Card Family For Better Or Worse, Till Death Do Us Part

I am a happily married man. My wife and I are a team. We go through good times and times that are not so good . No matter what life throws at us, we take comfort in knowing that we are there for each other. We always have each others back. One of the most important aspects of our relationship is knowing that we have the others support even when we are wrong. We will defend each other publicly until the end of time. The beauty of it is that we can talk about it later, in private, and tell the other where and why they were wrong and nobody gets upset. Support is a key value and it’s what keeps my wife and I  strong as a team.

Card family, I have publicly defended you for as long as I can remember and I will continue to do so but now is the time we have that talk where I tell you where you were wrong. We don’t have this talk to belittle each other but rather to help us become stronger. We as a fan base should always be looking for a way to better ourselves to be the best we can be. That is why I need to ask you, why are you leaving games early?

Justin Renck: Football Fan Day

I attended Fan Day at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium on Sunday afternoon, and that is what I went for, to be a fan. I acted like a kid again and got autographs, only these days it is different because the whole team is younger than me! Still cool though of course, and I hope that never gets old for me. I had to get items autographed for the tailgate trailer that my friends and I have been working on. You will see pics of that soon I am sure!
