Lamar Jackson Should Be An NFL Quarterback

Lamar Jackson

The 2016 Heisman winner, Lamar Jackson flew under as many radars possible coming into the 2017 season. Every person imaginable overlooked him, completely forgot about the record-breaking season he posted last year. Jordan Heck with Sporting News and Eric Galko with Optimum Scouting, break down why Jackson deserves every ounce of praise he has received finally. It seems Cardinal fans are not the only ones who remember why he is the best quarterback in the country, not a wide receiver.

ESPN Radio College Game Day Is Coming To Campus

crowd_flag

ESPN Radio College Game Day will be on campus for the matchup against Clemson. They will be broadcasting from Gate 3 from noon to 7 pm on September 16th. Louisville is set to take on Clemson at 3:30 PM that day.

No. 16 Louisville (1-0) hosts No. 3 Clemson (1-0) at 3:30 p.m. that day in what could be a significant matchup in the ACC’s Atlantic Division title race. The game still doesn’t have a a set channel to call home.

From the CJ-

“We are so excited to bring ESPN Radio’s ‘College GameDay’ broadcast to campus on Saturday, Sept. 16, leading up to the Clemson game,”  ESPN marketing coordinator Shanice Smith wrote. 

Louisville is the rumored 2nd place location for the TV version of GameDay at the moment. With the unfortunate events of FSU starting QB Deondre Francois going down to injury and Hurricane Irma & a follow up Hurricane right behind it, having the TV version of GameDay is not out of the question. Let’s hope that we get this oprestigious nod because of a dominating win this weekend & not because of negativity. We at CardinalSportsZone are keeping those affected by the Hurricanes of the past few and next few weeks in our thoughts and prayers.

Go Cards!
