Cardinal Sports Zone would like to wish a speedy recovery to Butler University’s Men’s Soccer player, Jared Timmer. Prayers go out to him. The Junior captain had suffered a lower leg injury in the game tonight against UofL in front of his dad.
Spectator Alex Sherrard said:
“I didn’t see the injury up close but he was laying there screaming and motioning for the trainers. His left leg was hanging loose and contorted to the left side. Looked like he completely blew out his knee. Had to be taken off the field by stretcher and sent to the hospital. His Dad looked completely crushed.”
The University of Louisville Men’s Soccer team is ranked 9th in the first United Coaches Poll. The Cards are one of 6 ACC teams ranked in the top 10. Take a look below and let us know what you think about the first round of rankings.
This week on 55……….
We talk Cardinal Camo…….YES…..Cardinal Camo. We go over huge upsets and letdown. We go over the wet, wet, win in South Florida and a slew of other great but random things that have happened this week. Glad to have 55 back for you guys after the hiatus last week. Without further adieu, here are the 55 greatest, most ridiculous or random things I have heard, had to debate, or just thought about this past week. This …..is……55.
1) First off I want to wish my mom a speedy recovery. She means the world to me and normally I don’t talk about personal issues on 55 but if you get a moment, say a prayer. I put her for #1 because she is my number 1….mushy I know (Don’t care)
This week on 55……….
We talk commitments……HUGE commitments. How the Cards are doing under Bobby P. Red-White scrimmage tickets go on sale. Hot dogs, Nelson, Intrastate rivals and more. Is there one more big commitment in the CARDS for UofL this week? I say L yeah! So strap in, here are the 55 most ridiculous things I have heard, had to debate, or just thought about this past week. This …..is……55.
1) ACC ACC ACC ACC ACC ACC ACC ACC ACC ACC ACC………..I’m really not sure if I said it enough times but ACC ACC ACC ACC ACC ACC. My bad, I know that was the same #1 as it was last week but so much more respect nationally just due to the conference switch. Much more fun league to be a part of as well. Got the following tweet right after the game….
3) Last year we would have “slipped by” or “escaped” This year we shut down a top ACC team. So proud of this team…..
4) Read my experience from my first ACC game here
