The Cardinal Countdown: 50 Days Until Kickoff

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, please stand at attention, push back those shoulders, raise up that chin and….exhale. We made it. We are now officially halfway home to the 2018 Louisville Cardinal’s Football Season.

Since no one is wearing the #50 this season what a great opportunity to do a quick pulse check on the fanbase.

How are the Cards gonna finish the 2018 regular season?

I’ve done this the last three years and the results are always all over the board, but typically the readers of this countdown who vote in the poll are.....pretty optimistic. Take a look at the previous top vote getters vs. how the Cards actually finished each season.

The majority vote getter has never nailed it on the head, and all three years we’ve overshot the real result. So, at the halfway point what say you about the 2018 Louisville Cardinals? Do they overachieve with a few new faces at prominent positions, or are they fighting to make a bowl late in the season? I’ll leave the choices the same as seasons past but add 6-6 as an option for those of you who just don’t see it come together this year. If you forecast 5-7 or less….you suck, and I don’t want to want dumb your vote anyway. Feel free to discuss below...
