***Welcome back folks, the schedule getting pushed back by about 10 days injected a brief hiatus into the countdown but here we are...26 days until the third new kickoff date we’ve been provided this season. Lets hope that 26 days from now we have a healthy enough situation to let the Cards take on inner-state foe Western Kentucky.***

26 Days

Occasionally on the days where the Cards don’t currently have a player on the roster wearing that days number I’ll try and drop an interesting fact or noteworthy stat relating to that said number. **I use the terms interesting and noteworthy very loosely**

In 2019 Hassan Hall finished the year with 26 kickoff returns for a total of 793 yards. That 30.05yd/ret average was good enough for 4th in the nation last year.

For his career Hassan Hall is second all-time at UofL with a 26.9yd/ret average, only trailing Frank Moore (1966) by a single yard. He is also Top 5 for a single season average (2019) and number one overall for a single game (WF:2019 55.0yd/ret). Undoubtedly Hall will go down as one of the best to ever do it at UofL.
