50 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….

You ain’t gonna believe this but Lamar Jackson finished his career at UofL with 50 rushing touchdowns, sitting firmly in the top spot all-time, easily passing Lenny Lyles, Michael Bush, and Eric Shelton along the way. What you may not know is that number two on the list for most rushing touchdowns, by a quarterback, in a career is none other than Mr. Malik Cunningham, who already has 18 to his name and seven more than his next closest competitor in Benny Russell.

I get it, after watching a seal juggle three bowling balls that are on fire the singing German Shephard who follows that act may not turn as many heads….but it’s still a singing German Shephard. Put some respect on the name.
