A.F.R.O.S. 2017 Edition

The ACC Digital Network spends a lot of time on each school in the conference. I may be a little biased but I think they do their best work on their Louisville stuff.

They focused today on Louisville’s solid receiving corp. Louisville has always been known for having great crops of receivers. The acronym A.F.R.O.S. was coined here. America’s Finest Receivers On Saturday was born in the mid 90’s by name and has been a traditiona ever since. Today @theACCDN shows you this year’s A.F.R.O.S.

2017 Heisman Odds (Bovada)

img_20161210_213246

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

4 Star DE Aaron Odom Commits To Louisville

Football Close Up on Field

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.

Caleb Chandler Commits Plus…

5 Positive Takeaways From The Citrus Bowl

uoflfootball

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
