Cards Going Coastal???

SHELBYVILLE, KY—

When word leaked this past football season that the University of Louisville was being invited and in fact had accepted the “no-brainer” invitation to the (ACC), Atlantic Coast Conference, many including myself just assumed that the Cardinals would replace the departing Maryland Terrapins in the Atlantic division. As College Football Gameday Host and former Louisville football Coach Lee Corso might say, “Not so fast my friend!” According to reports from…

Preview: Louisville Defense vs. Cincinnati Offense

Friday’s matchup between #16/#14 Louisville and unranked Cincinnati won’t be as highly decorated as originally thought and there will likely not be a sea of red like we’ve come accustom to seeing at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium. The Toledo Rockets of the MAC Conference are responsible for taking some of the luster out of the game after they beat then #21 Cincinnati last Saturday and the lack of Cardinal red won’t be due to poor attendance but rather a “white out”. The Bearcats (5-1, 1-0) are…
