69 Days Until Kickoff

When the Cards don’t have an athlete wearing the days corresponding jersey number in 2021 I’m going to drop a quick stat, a “did you know” or maybe even a “you ain’t gonna believe this” below. You’re gonna need to click each day to find out what you get….

Did you know that Lamar Jackson finished his Louisville career with 69 passing touchdowns, finishing 5th all time in that category? For all the focus on his mobility and how he used his legs to evade defenders if Lamar would have played a fourth season at UofL (using season averages) he would have left the program sitting first overall in passing touchdowns. Yes, ahead of Redman, Brohm, Ragone, Bridgewater….everyone. Stop me if you’ve heard this but, the man is an underrated passer. That arm is looking “nice”.
