LOUISVILLE, Ky. – University of Louisville football head coach Bobby Petrino will present the newest members of the Louisville Cardinals football team during U of L’s day-long coverage of National Signing Day on Wednesday, Feb. 1.
Highlighted by an open public event at 6:00 p.m. ET, Cardinals fans will hear first-hand from the Louisville coaching staff about this year’s incoming class, which is expected to be among the nation’s top-ranked groups.
The odds came out for the 2017 Heisman Trophy from Bovada & the 2016 winner is not the favorite. Shocked? I’m not. After the 3 game slide to the end of the 2016 year I already thought they would do whatever it took to make sure he doesn’t win next year. It is almost impossible from a statline point of view for him to improve. We will see. Here are this years odds:
Odds to Win the 2017 Heisman Trophy
Baker Mayfield (QB Oklahoma) 11/2
JT Barrett (QB Ohio State) 6/1
Lamar Jackson (QB Louisville) 7/1
Sam Darnold (QB USC) 9/1
Saquon Barkley (RB Penn State) 10/1
Jake Browning (QB Washington) 10/1
Trace McSorley (QB Penn State) 10/1
In the wee hours of the morning while most of CardNation was asleep, the Cards landed another commitment, this time from 4 star defensive end Aaron Odom. According to Scout.com, Odom is the 22nd ranked defensive end in the 2017 class, as well as the 1st ranked defensive end in the state of Mississippi. Odom flipped from Miss State to the Cards. Good to see that hiring of new defensive coaches Peter Sirmon and Lorenzo Ward is already paying early dividends on the recruiting front.

The season didn’t end the way we had hoped. The Citrus Bowl was supposed to be the positive springboard into next season just as the Music City Bowl was last year. When I saw that Josh Harvey-Clemons, Shaq Wiggins and Trumaine Washington were all in street clothes, I knew the defense would have some issues. What I hoped to see was improvement from the offensive line. I did not. Read the rest of this entry

Happy day after Heisman day! It is always a great day to wake up and say, Louisville had a Heisman Trophy Winner. I will admit I have a small sample size for that comment seeing I’ve only been able to experience that one day. Lamar Jackson became immortal in Louisville sports history. It’s something most of us never thought we would see. Going back to the days of practicing & watching games at Old Cardinal Stadium. We were an independent then C-USA then Big East then AAC and now ACC. We are in the ACC! Everything has changed. We are reaping the benefits of that now.
Another thing that makes these days great are waking up and seeing another highlight video from @UofLFootball commemorating Lamar’s amazing and historic moment. Rocco did an amazing job chronicling it. Made me feel like I was there. Here’s the latest.
Here is footage by @UofLFootball of the Heisman Trophy announcement & presentation of the trophy.
As you all know by now Louisville has their first Heisman Trophy Winner. Lamar Jackson Is the youngest winner in history & has the most rushing yards by a winner that was also a QB. It’s truly awesome to have seen this & we should all be honored to have witnessed it. Here are videos of him winning the trophy.
