If Every Year Of The BCS Was Changed And Played Out Under The CFP

Harry Douglas Orange Bowl


Our guys over at @TheRed_Rage have started their own website as of late and have been doing a lot of cool things. From Boy Meets World discussion groups to daily thoughts to simulations, they have made a great site that has a variety show feel to it. That could be a great thing. Something new in a field of the same ole stories. I talked to the Red Rage about the simulations they had done with the UofL teams vs the past 15 National Champions (I think). We talked at length about how underrated the Orange bowl team was. Great Offense, stellar Defense. All the makings of a high-power team.

Louisville Commit L.J. Scott: SportsCenter #1 Top Play


Every night on SportsCenter, the top 10 plays from around the country are played. Every day America submits what they think should be the ten best plays in America. Being #1 is something CardNation is getting use to and on this night it wouldn’t be any different. L.J. Scott, a 5-10 224 pound RB out of Marion Harding High School in Marion, Ohio leaped over a defender and rumbled to the end zone for what appeared to be a 50 yard TD. Scott, a Louisville commit, was flagged for the play because hurdling is illegal in High School football in Ohio. I asked LJ what it meant to him being on SportsCenter Top 10. “ It meant more to me that kids who look up to me were happy more than my own happiness if that makes sense. Marion is a great town but unfortunately its been out shadowed by negative light lately. It was a team effort though, but I’m just more excited kids who look up to me know that great things are possible with God and hard work!!” said LJ. When I asked his thoughts about everyone who helped to get the video on he said “to everyone who helped it go viral I can’t thank them enough… to the city of Marion, to Cardnation!! I cant explain the appreciation of everything! I cant wait to be a cardinal but im not in a hurry to leave my beloved Marion!!!

This kid is a special kid and that’s become the standard of what Coach Strong recruits. A very humble and Outstanding young man. CardNation we are lucky. I told him we will hopefully see him make more Top 10’s as a Card. Below is the clip, Enjoy!

CardNation Speaks: 2013 Opener (Part 3)


So I have been telling you guys that one thing that I pride myself in is staying completely interactive with CardNation. I follow everyone back on Twitter, answer every question, and talk to everyone no matter what time of the day I get hit with a random DM on twitter. I feel like that’s important, and a part of what sets us apart from a majority of the other sites out there. I wanted to do a game week story about what you all were feeling about Sunday and what was your favorite gameday rituals or things to do. I DM’d several people that I converse with the most and asked for their input. I hope you guys enjoy reading what everyone thought. I will be releasing these every day this week so email me at if you want to be a part of it. Todays participants include: @Baseboy124 @punkingirl138  @warrenkingii @DanielSpencer  @CardsFan_L1C4   & last but not least the team Grandma @UofLFanatic

Thanks CardNation and Enjoy!

Big Time DT to Visit the Cards


By: Steven Rummage

Big time DT Derrick Calloway plans to visit the Cards on January 25. Calloway ( 6’1, 301 lbs) holds offers from all the nations elite (OSU, Florida, South Carolina, FSU, Miami, USC, Arkansas, and many more) but says he will take 3 visits before making his final choice: Texas Tech, USF, Louisville. Most believe this will come down to Tech and UofL and would be a huge get for either school.

Cards looking at JUCO QB?



By: Steven Rummage

The Cards have recently inquired about 6’3 230 lbs JUCO QB Brett Nelson. Nelson completed 64% of his passes this year and threw for an average of  257 yards per game. Nelson would be a nice pickup for the Cards as he would provide much needed experience should Teddy go pro like many expect after next season. Gardner and Bolin will also be in the hunt for the next QB job at Louisville but with both coming off injures an extra QB would be nice. Nelson has also been hearing from Alabama. See highlights of Nelson HERE


Cards looking at JUCO CB

Randall, Damarious lr.preview

By:Steven Rummage

Damarious Randall is the nations 7th ranked JUCO CB and led the nation in INT’s with 8, and was second on his team in tackles. Not to mention the fact he was one of the nations top return men. All this great play has Randall now on many teams radars including the Cardinals. Randall is currently still committed to Arizona St but claims to be looking around. Randall would come in a give Louisville that shut down CB and lethal return man they have been looking for oh and add in the fact he may get a Third year of eligibility….Umm Yes please! Randall is also on twitter CardNation @DRandall_9. Enjoy these Highlights

Football team helps with tornado cleanup

On Thursday morning, Coach Charlie Strong and his staff took two busses full of football players up to Henryville, IN to help clean up from the tornadoes that hit last Friday. It was a great act for them to go help out people in need, and it just shows what kind of character that this coaching staff is teaching these young men. We could not be prouder of the staff and the team!

Here are some pictures taken by Howie Lindsey.


Ryan White talks to CSZ

Ryan White

The train keeps rollin’ for Charlie Strong and the UofL football staff. Monday morning began with news of another committment for the class of 2013. Ryan White, a Cornerback from Trinity High School in Louisville, became the 3rd member of the class of 2013 to commit to the Cards. He joins Kyle Bolin and Donel Elam.

CSZ was actually the first to contact White after he made his committment (that was confirmed by White). Since we were already posting the interview with Donel Elam in the morning, we held this one until today. We knew he would be bombarded with questions all day long, so we kept it short and sweet. Here is what he had to say…
