**This post is doing so well, we bumped it**
You have heard everyones thoughts and opinions on the spring game. If you haven’t read ours, click here (Cheap pop). It was one of the most exciting spring games that I can remember as Lamar threw 8 TD’s and amassed 1st half video game numbers. 23-28, 454 yards & 7 TD. WOW! Even though the attendance was super disappointing, the sights and action were not. Our guy Jeff Nunn came out and took some photos at the spring game and we hope that you enjoy them!
We all have been waiting for Bobby to come back to Louisville so that we can see the 50’s and 60’s on the scoreboard. Even here he said what he would do to the scoreboards the day he talked to the fans the week he got re-hired. At every other stop year 3 is when things come together so it is not crazy to expect the same thing here…again. Coach Petrino had a ton of issues last year with injuries as well. 3 starting QB’s & an OLine that was pretty much a patchwork job. An O-Line however by the time we get to Orlando against Alabama that could be very, very good. Andrea Adelson had an opinion this morning on this topic as well. She talked about the only times a Bobby offense had averaged fewer than 30 ppg.

People have been asking me where they can find all of the days @UofLFootball videos and stats from yesterday. Here they are. If you all know of any others that I omitted please comment in the area below and I will add them. Go Cards!
Pregame scuffle, Kyle Bolin, DeVante Parker. That is your summary for the 2014 game. Enjoy!
You have been waiting all season for this, the UofL vs. UK football game to close the 2015 regular season. With a desperate Kentucky team needing a win to secure bowl eligibility for the first time in five years, the Cardinals travel to Lexington looking to end any bowl aspirations of the ‘Cats for a second straight season.
Tis the season, my friends and foes. Giving thanks, sure. But giving grief, absolutely.
The week fans have had circled, underlined, and plenty of exclamation points leading up to opening weekend, because duh… It’s the most locally anticipated game of the season.
For one, the rivalry.
For two… Bowl eligibility.
As winners of five of their last six games, the Cardinals are looking to earn bowl eligibility for a sixth straight season when they face their new conference rivals, the Virginia Cavaliers. The Cavaliers, however, must win to keep their hopes of bowl eligibility alive.
The Cardinals and Cavaliers played last season in early September. The Cards jumped to an early 7-0 lead, but sacks and turnovers ultimately doomed Louisville. A fumbled punt by Louisville led to an Ian Frye 42-yard field goal with 3:42 left to lead the Cavaliers to a 23-21 upset over the #21 Cardinals.
Bobby Petrino and wide receiver Jamari Staples met with the media on Monday afternoon to recap the win at Wake Forest and talk about this Saturday’s game against Syracuse.
Bobby Petrino and Reggie Bonnafon met with the media on Monday to talk about the loss to Florida State and also preview this Saturday’s game against Boston College. The transcript for Petrino is below the videos. The Cards face Boston College at 12:30 this Saturday at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium.
Bobby Petrino spoke to the media after yesterday’s 20-13 win over NC State. Video and transcript below.
BOBBY PETRINO: We’re looking forward to going on the road and playing a very good North Carolina State team, a team that’s playing really good defense. They’re big and physical up front. Their linebackers really run and tackle. Basically, the same secondary guys that we played against a year ago. They’re also playing very good offense. I think their running backs are running really hard, big offensive front. Jacoby Brissett is doing a nice job of running their offense, being very efficient and accurate and completing a lot of passes. It’s a great challenge for us and certainly one we’re looking forward to.
Q. The environment after the first win, obviously, it was some time coming. Once the team got that, just the locker room after the game, how the team’s responded in practice, and what that’s done for you at this point going into the next game?
Bobby Petrino met with the media on Monday to discuss the upcoming game against NC State. He talks Lamar Jackson, updates Jeremy Smith’s injury, the offensive line, and more.

Quick comments from Lamar Jackson, Reggie Bonnafon, Trumaine Washington, and Chucky Williams.
Coach Petrino’s press conference after Louisville’s 45-3 over Samford on Saturday.
Opening statement: We did what we were supposed to do. We were supposed to perform well and win the game. I was happy for our players. I know the last three weeks have been hard on them. I was very proud of the way they approached the week and how hard we worked. The good attitude that we had. I do think we improved in practice this week. I think they had fun out on the field tonight. It was good to get the turnovers early by our defense and then offensively be able to take advantage of it. So it was a good win and now we’ve got to get ready for next week’s game.
Q: What was different about the performance tonight? Is this kind of the rhythm you’d like for your offense to have?
Louisville head coach Bobby Petrino met with the media on Monday evening after practice to talk about Thursday’s game against Clemson. He recaps the Houston game a little bit, talks about the quarterback situation, the disappointment of the defense, and more.
Bobby Petrino says he has his QB for Saturday, but obviously won’t say who, and I love that. So who do YOU think it will be that starts? For all we know, the starter may play one play, one series, one half. Who knows? May play the whole game and never come out! The fifth option on the poll is interesting. Do multiple QBs play on the first snap for the Cards? Vote below!
On today’s show, we talked about who we would each WANT as the starting QB for Louisville this season. Not who we think it will be, but our preference. I give a terrible answer, but pick somebody in the end. Perrin Johnson joined us, which was a treat. We had our most callers we have had so far and had a great time.
