Lamar has posted better numbers this year than he did last year, when he actually won the Heisman Trophy and is the youngest player ever to do so. Yet this year, he is fourth in voting with his only hope of winning being some type sort of miracle. David Hale with ESPN dives into the mystery a little deeper.
When Quentin Snider, Anas Mahmoud and Deng Adel committed to play basketball at the University of Louisville, they never could have guessed the obstacles they would be facing. They have played through the Katina Powell scandal and now the FBI one. They never let it bring them down though, they have been the solid foundation that the freshman and sophomores have needed. Jeff Borzello with ESPN.COM talks about how vital the upperclassman have been.
Through the first 11 weeks of the college football season, wide receivers across the country have gone above and beyond to help pack their quarterback’s stats, as well as their own. Seth Dawkins and Dez Fitzpatrick have some of the highest passer ratings when targeted thus far in the ACC. PFF helps break down the numbers.
Jeff Greer with the Courier Journal recently sat down with interim head coach, David Padgett for 30 minutes, and got the inside scoop on how he is adjusting. They talked about everything from recruiting to adjusting to the size of his new office (hint, it is huge).
He’s backkkkkk. After somehow falling from the rankings for a few weeks, Lamar Jackson has made his rightful return to the Heisman rankings. With just a few more weeks left to play, it will be interesting to see where the reigning Heisman winner lands.

Here is a TweetCap of today’s press conference from University of Louisville Head Coach, Bobby Petrino via @UofLFootball.
Pat Forde with Yahoo Sports noticed how quiet the Yum! Center seemed on Sunday. Between a smaller crowd than usual, a smaller student section, and a much quieter coach, the entire day felt different. Different doesn’t always mean bad, but only time will tell on how it plays out.
Head Coach Bobby Petrino, sophomore linebacker Jon Greenard, senior linebacker James Hearn, senior running back Reggie Bonnafon, freshman running back Dae Williams, junior wide receiver Jaylen Smith, and junior quarterback Lamar Jackson all sat down with the media after the win against Virginia. Listen to what they had to say below.
For the 8th straight year, the UofL Cardinal Football team is headed to a bowl game! You can reserve your tickets below.
UofL equipment announced the uniform combination that the football team will wear against Virginia. In honor of Veterans Day, they will be wearing the Stars and Stripes!
Now that all of the exhibition games are complete, it is time to focus on the first official game of the 2017-2018 men’s basketball season. The Student CAF announced today all of the promotions for the season, including a pajama night, ugly sweater night and a neon night. Check out the full schedule below!
On September 26, 2017, the day started off just like any other day. Most of us went to work, student athletes and students attended classes, naps were taken, never would anyone have guessed the landscape of college basketball would be potentially changed forever that day.
Jeff Greer with the Courier Journal sat down with some of the current players on the UofL men’s basketball team and asked them how they all found out about the FBI investigation. Anas was leaving a finance class, Quentin was taking a nap, VJ and Ryan were in a biology lab, everyone was going about their normal, every day business when a tsunami hit.
While everyone had the same initial reaction of shock and disbelief, it is the way Q, Anas and Adel stepped up to make sure the team did not fall apart. Their true leadership skills shined like never before in some of the toughest days of being a cardinal.
The UofL men’s soccer team found out tonight they will play Virginia this Sunday at 1PM. The game is at Lynn Stadium and the weather is supposed to be awesome on Sunday. Go get your tickets and cheer on the cards!
Congratulations are in order for Lamar Jackson! He was named today to the Maxwell Award semifinalist list. This is an award he won last year and honors America’s college player of the year.
Lamar Jackson continues to be a bright spot for UofL football. His record breaking season continued on Saturday at Wake Forest.
