59 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 during the decade of 1990-1999 the Cards won 59 football games, finishing those ten years with a winning record of 59-54-1. The next decade (2000-2009) the Cards won an incredible 83 games, and the most recent decade (2010-2019) the Cards just missed that mark (thanks, 2018) finishing with 81 wins. When dividing up records into ten year chunks, the last two decades (2000-2009, 2010-2019) have produced the two best winning percentages in program history.
