Dominance Baby!

The Premise of Cardinal Dominance

The premise for starting Cardinal Dominance:

A new voice and new view of Louisville Athletics.

The internet is a breeding ground for all kinds of error-riddled UofL news and skewed perceptions. We are here to "keep it real" and keep our fanbase "in the loop" with realistic views, scouting and correct information.

Be yourself, and speak your mind. Let your passion shine.

Welcome to the promised land!

Thanks Shannon! I really liked Sam Madison, got to know him pretty well...along with Rico Clark when they played here. Same with David Akers. Kristen Maddox was just a great Lady Card who had the best outside jumper I've ever seen in women's basketball, but Lady Cards hoops wasn't very popular back then. Angel...well, she is Angel. Enough said. Keep hanging in there with the blog, I check it several times a week...know it's tough while working and all....discounts on white zin for Sonja at the restaurant? :) Anyway, keep the faith and we've lived thru a lot tougher times in football than this and we'll rise again. As Howard said..."the only variable is time." GO CARDS!

Of course I took that bear down. Your not supposed to freeze or run when you see a bear. Any seasoned forester knows you go straight for the "ham 'n' cheese/noogie" I like this site, it's more like a myspace/facebook for UL and less confrontational than the two I'm used to.

Nice website. I love all the info that can be found here. Look forward to the Gear.

Louisville Football Bobby Petrino Press Conference Photo Album and Updates

Posted on January 9, 2014 at 12:39pm 0 Comments

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Even when I have the flu, I still had to attend the Louisville press to see the official second coming of Petrino. Can't miss that regardless if I am on my death bed. Was it worth it? You bet.
