The time is once again upon us. Hell of a year Cards fans. Last season has been well documented not only on this site but by local and national media alike so I’ll pass on the lengthy recap…for now. While 2012 was a great 12 months for Louisville athletics, the start of 2013 ain’t been half bad. The football Cardinals return possibly the best team it has fielded in quite some time. Some preseason prognosticators (awesome title by the way) have even shown the Cards some love listing them as high as number 4 nationally. A Heisman candidate, Conference Championship aspirations, BCS Bowl aspirations….National Championship aspirations. This could be an exciting year, and while someone of my stature would never put the pressure of an undefeated season on these fine young men (I absolutely would), it would be pretty amazing to see the red and black sitting at 12-0 in January playing for the Crystal Skull. (What? It’s a Crystal ball trophy..? Well, that’s disappointing)
Over the course of the next 99 days I’ll profile each player on the Louisville roster, and may even throw in some coaches during the slow periods (I’m looking at you offensive line). If you followed the Cardinal Countdown last year we had some fun with the nicknames for various players. This year I thought I’d throw each players twitter handle on their profile, if they have one, so those of you who enjoy a good
twat twit twoot tweet can check them out. You can check me out as well if you feel so inclined, just do a search for CardinalStrong…no I’m not Connie Thomas, and yes I have used Connie Thomas’s name in vain on numerous occasions.
We’ve got 100 days till Louisville football people… Get your birthdays party’s out of the way, attend all your weddings, head to the lake for a few weekends, go watch the Redbirds, build that deck you wanted last summer, polish up your CCBM, you've got 100 days. Kickoff is coming….get on board, or get out the way!
