Lamar Jackson continues to be a bright spot for UofL football. His record breaking season continued on Saturday at Wake Forest.
Louisville Football Recruting graced us with an update on how things are looking at Papa Johns Cardinal Stadium. Oh man, does it look awesome!
Chuck Smrt’s employment by the University of Louisville has been questioned by many individuals in the last few months. His questionable guidance through the Katina Powell and Andre McGee scandal led to Louisville possibly losing our 2013 banner. Somehow, he still has a contract through UofL. This was discussed yesterday, and you can listen to interim president Greg Postel and Bill Stone discuss his tenure below.
Lamar Jackson is making his way back to the top of the Heisman odds. He started this season at 8-1 and of the favorites he is currently at 25-1. Lamar would only be the second player in the Heisman history to win he prestigious award twice. Check out the full standings below.
The ULAA announced today it is considering funding options to build an $8 Million ACC Network production studio. This would be something that happens in the next two years, but would be a huge benefit for UofL for game day shows and productions. It would also benefit all students if the University does add a minor in broadcasting in the near future.

All good things must come to an end. I didn’t see Tom Jurich’s tenure coming to an end in such an inglorious fashion. I enjoyed having him as Athletic Director of my Alma Mater because I believe he cared about UofL Athletics as much as I do.
I was born here in Louisville, raised here in Louisville, and I graduated from Louisville. I am Louisville. UofL sports is woven into the intricate fabric of Louisville. I love the games, the atmosphere, the camaraderie of fans, the players, and the games. It’s all wondrous to me. And to me, the face of UofL Athletics wasn’t a coach, it was Tommy “The Turtleneck” Jurich.
In what could go down as the biggest mistake in the history of the University of Lohisville, Athletic Director Tom Jurich has been fired with “cause.”
Reports began to leak last night that the board had decided to fire Jurich. Fans immediately took to social media to express their opinions on the decision.
Jurich has been on paid administrative leave since September 28th.

WDRB’s Bill Lamb, in his “Point of View” editorial segment last night, offered his opinion on the situation between the UofL Board of Trustees and suspended Athletic Director Tom Jurich.
Lamb explains that he believes that Tom Jurich should be retained. He argues that Jurich’s full body of work should be taken into account. Speaking on Jurich, Lamb says, “No person in the history of the University has done more to build it into what it is today than Tom Jurich.” He specifically mentions Jurich’s work in getting UofL into the ACC as a major factor for retaining him.
Lamb believes that the posturing by certain Board members and their rabid attempt to oust Jurich, “has a lot more to do with their egos than what’s right for UofL.”
When speaking of the certain, unnamed Board members, Lamb states, “I believe there are Board members who are willing tear UofL down just to show how powerful they’ve become. It’s all about them, not the University.”
He also mentions that some big money donors hope to persuade other Board members to step up, do the right thing, and vote to keep Jurich.
