Football season is still over two months away but it’s on my mind everyday. I recently received an email for the University ticket office that stated my request for Clemson tickets was approved and would be mailed at the end of August. I felt like a six-year-old on Christmas morning upon reading that email. Football has always been my first love even though I have come to enjoy Cardinal softball since I started covering it for CSZ. You should really go to a softball game. It’s a great time and you will be pleasantly surprised with the product on the field. Read the rest of this entry
Here are the top 5 sack performances from 2015 from YOUR UofL Football team provided to you by the fine folks at Louisville Football:
I seen this on the Courier Journal this morning (h/t to Steve Jones) and thought I would share. Once thought to be a late 1st to early 2nd round draft pick, Sheldon Rankins has shot up the draft boards. Pro Football Focus ranked the first three rounds here.
Here is a video recap of Sheldon Rankins pro day via Louisville Football.
Here are a compilation of tweets from around CardNation on how Sheldon Rankins performed today at the NFL combine!
From time to time here, in addition to the contributors opinion pieces, I will post storied I find on the internet that interest me. I am a complex sports fan so I feel if things interest me, they will interest you. More times than not I am right. (Humble Brag) Today I came across a good story from Andrea Adelson (most of her stuff is) about what UofL Football needs to do to take the next step. I hope you enjoy!
The ACC announced their All-Conference teams on Monday afternoon, and there was no shortage of Louisville Cardinals, as 10 players were named to various teams. Nobody made the first team, and Sheldon Rankins somehow landed all the way back on the third team.
Of the 10 players, 9 came from the defensive side of the ball, with Geron Christian being the only player on offense to make it. The full teams are listed below.
Coach Bobby Petrino speaks to the media following Saturday’s 38-31 win over Virginia on Senior Day at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium.
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.
Todd Grantham and Sheldon Rankins spoke to the media after practice on Wednesday. They talk about the Florida State game and look ahead to Boston College.
I have said it before and I will say it again: I love when opposing schools have youtube channels and keep them updated with press conferences and preview videos like this. It certainly helps pass the time during the week while you wait for Saturday to get here. If you are like me, you just can’t get too much information leading up to a game like this.
This preview is from Seminoles.com.

According to the ACC Digital Network, Louisville’s top 3 impact players for the 2015 football season will be James Quick, Sheldon Rankins, and Brandon Radcliff. There is no doubt that all three of those guys will have to play well for the Cards to have success. It is just very hard to narrow this down to three because then you leave out guys like James Burgess, Keith Kelsey, Josh Harvey-Clemons, or whoever plays quarterback.
Nevertheless, these three will still be key factors in 2015.
