16 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 2017 Louisville started the season ranked 16th in the Preseason Coaches Poll and 17th in the AP Poll. Later that year the Cards would fall out of the rankings (Oct 8) and have not returned to either poll since.

In the 2020 Preseason AP/Coaches polls the Cards still remain just outside the Top 25 in the “others receiving votes” section but are a legitimately threat to return to the poll with a couple early season victories.
