Nunnsense: Pump The Brakes Or Ride The Hype Train?

Papa Johns

One week from today all the talk and speculation of what this years version of  Louisville football has to offer will be over. Actual football will be played and I am giving you this week to decide if you want to continue with all the hype or if you want to pump the brakes a bit. I understand either way but if you decide to jump off the hype train please don’t try to jump back on when we take down FSU because you will be met with more resistance than a Miami defensive back from a Mario Urrutia stiff arm.  Read the rest of this entry

PRESS RELEASE

Rocco Gasparro

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – During his coaching career, University of Louisville head coach Bobby Petrino hasn’t had a lot of freshmen start on the offensive lin.
Petrino’s offense, which is known for its complexity, is difficult for a true freshman to understand to be able to get on the field. However, rising sophomore Geron Christian not only was able to get on the field – he excelled at one of the most difficult positions.

 
The Ocala, Fla., product, started all 13 games at offensive tackle – the only person on a young, revamped line to accomplish such a feat.

 

Not only did Christian play every game, he played well enough to garner all-ACC accolades as a rookie.

 

Looking back at 2015, even Christian is astonished on how much he learned in his first season.

 

“Even just terminology and technique, looking back on last year even when I watch the film, I still kind of laugh at how far I’ve come and pretty much how I got away with just ability and not knowing as much and learning on the run,” Christian stated after practice.

You’ve waited all summer for it. You’ve hungered for it all summer. From the second the last one ended you couldn’t wait for the next one to begin. No I’m not talking about UofL Football.

This look typically signifies that Bobby knows something we don’t. I love this look. I have missed the Bobby swagger from the first stint at Louisville as well. Bobby knows we week be lighting up scoreboards and he can’t wait. How you ask? Not sure. One thing is for sure after checking out the Football Kickoff Luncheon I feel the old Bobby is back! Here’s a highlight video from the fine folks at UofL Football covering today’s Football Kickoff Luncheon. Enjoy!

Nunnsense: 2016 Louisville Football Game By Game Predictions

635894182243320933-UofL-schedule.jpg-large

Here is my game by game predictions for the 2016 football season. Las Vegas has set the regular season win total at 9.5 games. I believe it’s a wise bet to take the over. Usually when I say to take the over it’s my heart talking but after looking at each game I believe the Cards can very realistically win eleven games but my head says that there might be one game that we slip up that we shouldn’t so ten wins is a safer bet. It’s still over the Vegas total. I pride myself in not getting caught up in the hype and I always keep it real with you even though you might not always like me for it. So here is the ugly truth. Since Petrino returned to Louisville they are 0-4 vs Clemson and Florida State. They are 0-6 vs ranked teams (No, Notre Dame was not ranked and we were ranked 24th). I believe this is the year that all changes. As of now we have 3 chances to beat a ranked team. I think we win 2 of them. I truly believe Louisville wins 11 regular season games this year. That look that Petrino has in his eye, that grin he carries with him at every media appearance and that slightly elevated happy tone in his voice reminds me of Rick Pitino just before the start of the 2013 year and we all know how that turned out (No I don’t think Louisville will win a championship but it could be one of the best years ever).  Just like Pitino, Petrino knows he has something special with this team.

The #12 overall pick in the NFL draft, Sheldon Rankins, breaks his fibula in a goal-line drill. Reports say he should be back in week 6 after surgery.

Athlon Predicts ACC’s Top Ten Biggest Upsets For 2016

727061a13e82d2fade9075bec6ae5d6bI am not a huge fan of Athlon. I feel they are not Louisville friendly and this list proves it. Louisville makes 3 appearances on this list. I only agree with 1 of them. Trust me when I say that Bobby will have them ready for Marshall. It may be closer than we would like but an ugly win is still a win.

Nunnsense: Louisville Could Be In The 2016-17 College Football Playoff

cfp-playoff-2The University Of Louisville football team could be in this seasons college football playoff. They could also be playing in the Music City Bowl again. There is a lot of hype around this years team but there is still a lot to be proven. Will they live up to the hype? Personally, I am a believer in this years team. I have seen the team come together as one. I have seen players like Reggie Bonnafon and Kyle Bolin make decisions based on the betterment of the team and not themselves. I saw four players turn down the NFL to come back for one more chance. Usually we think in Read the rest of this entry
