Louisville Kicks Off The Trash Talk Early

 

Well it’s only June but there’s no time like the present to go ahead and get the talk ahead of the big game started. Louisville Linebacker Preston Brown took to twitter last night to let our players know who they should be focused on. I’m sure Louisville has their attention firmly on the football powerhouses like Temple, Memphis, and UConn that make up their schedule.

September 14th can’t come soon enough.

    well they did take out their starters at the beginning of the second half last year. Will definitely be interesting to see what Stoops and company can muster in terms of player effort, focus, and game planning against Bridgewater. Unfortunately we fell on hard times, like the redbirds with Kthorp, and we are lagging behind their program and should not expect to win against an offensively loaded top 10 Louisville squad. BUT just like they turned it around that is what we’re doing now…just wont be this yr

    Louisville starting off in the top 10 is like Florida Gulf Coast being preseason top 10 in basketball. Makes no sense lol

    Mr. Jurich: My employer has brought to my attention that recent actions by several of your minions (Mr. Pitino, Mr. Hurtt, and Ms. Hermann in particular) have forced a re-evaluation of your open line of credit per athletic success. Effective Sept. 14, 2014, Hell will turn on you.

    We will give them a game this year, I hope the over rated red birds and their fans continue to believe that they actually have a legit chance to contend for a national championship. FIGHT THE HYPE. We will be at home and our offense will be much better than the tooth less Gators.

    Sorry pal, but Kentucky is not the toughest game on Louisvilles schedule. Rutgers, Cincinnati, USF, and UCF will all be better Kentucky and will all make bowls. Kentucky will not make a bowl.

    They should know not to doubt their opponent. Just like Florida did last year to them and now they’re acting the same as the gators.

    7:43 pm June 1, 2013 Permalink

    I hate everything about UL but the guy is right…UK better be focusing exclusively on WKU, which beat us last year. As far as I am concerned, the WKU game is the only game until it is over. We can think about UL when it is time to do so. F-O-C-U-S.

    Honest question, is what Preston said in response to someone else offensive in anyway? I’m obviously biased, but objectively, I don’t see anything wrong with what he said.

    7:58 pm June 1, 2013 Permalink

    15 you are an idiot. Telling someone to worry about their first game isn’t doubting an opponent. He’s right, but go ahead and overlook WKU and Miami and come into the UofL game 0-2 that’d be great.

    There is literally no attitude or smack to this, especially if you consider what your numbnuts players (Nate Willis) are already spewing. Probably a better idea to have a quiet confidence than start running your mouth after a 2-10 season.

    Stoops is gonna do great, it will take time. We will crush western! But louisville’s gonna beat us like a drum next year. Hate em or not give them credit. They are a damn good football team with a helluva qb. They hammered florida & lost essentially no one. It’s really not ridiculous that they are a top ten preseason team. Go cats!

    I have to agree with He’s Right Says. As much I hate Louisville, Western is the only team we need to be concerned with right now! We can’t afford to lose the momentum of Coach Stoops’ hire and subsequent great recruiting by losing to the Hilltoppers. On the other side of the coin, “slimeball” Bobby would love nothing better than to start off his Western coaching tenure with a win over UK.
    As far as the Cardinal players and fans, they’d better not be looking past the Bobcats. Ohio went in to “Happy Valley” the first game of last season and knocked off the Nittany Lions. So, they won’t be intimidated by going into a 55,000 seat stadium, that will probably only be 2/3 full at any particular point during the game. UConn was able to beat the Cards at home last season, and this Ohio was a much better team than the Huskies.

    pulled into a gas station today while in Louisville. A dude got out of his car in cut off sweat pants and a Louisville football jersey, does he really think he looks cool. I have never seen such white trash that pours out of south Louisville, and the areas around the Louisville campus. Now I see why they don’t ever get decent jobs after they graduate when they don’t even know how to dress professionally for pete sake. Their neck tats are a perfect touch for their job interviews. They can chirp all they want this year but when teddy is gone, along with the rest of their south florida ties with money bags clint hurt, UK we get the last laugh. Pitino-public humiliation, Clint Hurtt- misleading the NCAA, Assistant AD with a past of abuse and corruption. Sounds about right. Jurich also covered up an assault that occurred in their locker room.

    All I was saying is that the gators offense is not that great. Their QB suck. Again I will say Louisville is the better team but to think we do not have a chance against them is ludicrous. We are not playing an Alabama team that day.

    Charles,
    While I do agree with that Kentucky probably won’t be the best team on Louisville, I’m not sure why you included South Florida in that list of teams that will be better UK. You do realize that South Florida team went 3-9 last (just 1 more win, and 1 less loss than Kentucky) season, don’t you?

    UofL beat Florida last year when we haven’t beaten them in about a hundred years. We used to use the old excuse that if Louisville played in the SEC they wouldn’t win three or four games a year. Well, we cannot say that now. UofL should be confident right now.We have put ourselves in a position of having to get fired up in order to beat Western, and will be lucky if we can actually beat them. Joker has set us back five years. We can only hope that Stoops can get us back to where we were when Brooks left. Then we can start talking trash back at them.

    Their fans are already talking smack over here in the Ville. Saying that we are going to lose to WKU and their former coach. I personally believe we are going to lay a major butt whipping on WKU and will give UL a better game than they expect. Bridgewater will be tough to overcome. Can’t wait till Stoops has a couple of years to get his recruits in place. The pendulum will be swinging back in our direction very quickly.

    mudcreekmark,

    Yes, Louisville did beat the Gators in the Sugar Bowl. And, I gave Coach Strong and his team credit for being the better prepared team that night in January. But, let’s not take one upset in a bowl game, and suddenly anoint Louisville as an “SEC contender”. There is a big difference between having a month to prepare for one big game, and having to prepare for a big game 6 or 7 times during the season. After the Sugar Bowl upset of the Gators, a lot of people seemed to instantly forget how mediocre Louisville looked the majority of the season. According to NCAA statistics, Louisville played the 93rd most difficult schedule in the nation (it had been about 115 or 116 before playing Florida). Facing that SOS, they lost at home to a bad UConn team; and, got absolutely demolished by Syracuse. The beat 3 teams with a combined record of 6-30 (FIU, USM and USF) by a total of 13 points, and could’ve easily lost all 3 of those games. They trailed a Southern Miss team that was worse than Kentucky (0-12), 17-6 going into the 4th quarter.

    Contrast that with a Florida squad that finished the season with the most difficult schedule in the country as determined by the NCAA. During the season, Florida played 4 teams that were in the top twelve at the time the Gators played them (LSU, South Carolina, UGA and FSU).

    Now, do you honestly believe Louisville would’ve gone 11-1 during the regular season playing Florida’s schedule?? That Sugar Bowl performance against Florida was the exception, and not the norm in Louisville’s 2012 season.

    The guy is right…who would overlook WKU? He is saying something that Stoops himself would say. We are a 3 pt favorite at a site that favors WKU….coming off a beat down to them last year…coached by one of the best who has had our number as a coach. Yeah. I’d say this kid is right.

    The talk about Louisville football continues to be comical at best-They do have a very good team right now but how will anyone ever know-the schedule is among the 5 easiest among power conference teams-which is funny too that the big least is a power conference in football. Truth is UL only has a few big wins ever and each was against a big name program in a down year-be happy this year playing Podunk U and enjoy middle of the pack football in the ACC.

    When I twitter I could have scripted the KSR response – “our schedule is tougher than yours”. It’s truly sad when bragging about a schedule (and losing all of them) is the only thing that makes you feel better. I’ve been to a lot of games, winning is a lot more fun than losing, I don’t care who you’re playing.

    #L1C4,

    As I tell my UofL buddies, I will be more than happy to see the Cards playing in the ACC. While it is not the SEC, it is far better than anything Louisville Football has ever experienced. I think Cardinal fans are going to get a little taste of what Kentucky fans have experienced for the past 50-60 years. Imagine playing a 5 to 8 week stretch comprised of the teams you mentioned, with maybe a VA Tech or Miami thrown in there. There’s a big difference between traveling to Clemson, Tallahassee and South Bend, and traveling to East Hartford, Piscataway and Syracuse.

    Card fans seem to have a very short memory! When Howard was the HC, the Cards routinely played 2 or 3 of the so called “big boys” a year. Now, go back and look at the Cards’ record against those established football schools. Outside of a win over Alabama in the Fiesta Bowl, and a win over a Texas team in 1993 that ended up going 5-5-1, the Cards haven’t fared very well against the upper echelon of college football.

    You need look no further than your former Big East rival WVU as an example of what a step up in competition can do. They were the “top dogs” in the BE during Louisville’s tenure in the conference (they were 5-2 against “The ‘Ville” from 2005-2011). Last season they made their move to the Big 12. After a fast start, the cumulative effect of playing quality teams week in and week out caught up with them, including a couple of beatdowns at the hands of Texas Tech, Kansas State and Oklahoma State. These former “bad boys” of the Big East went 4-5 in a good football conference.

    Let’s wait and see how the Cards do once they have to face a conference schedule that is partially comparable to Kentucky’s.

    John,

    While I do agree that we can’t be overlooking Western; your recollection of that game seems a little skewed. I would hardly call a 1 point loss on a trick play a “beatdown”, brother. Kentucky actually won the statistical battle that night. They had 7 more FDs than the Hilltoppers; and, 50 more total yards (that is hardly dominant on the part of the winning team). What ended up being Kentucky’s downfall that night was the 4 INTs thrown that were thrown.

    @12 Charles, if Kentucky played those “bowl teams” all season they’d be bowl eligible as well. LOL. Try playing the likes of Bama, UGA, LSU, South Carolina, and Florida week in and week out. See how many bowls teams like Rutgers, Cincinnati, USF, UCF, or even Louisville would make with a schedule like that. LMAO! Please.

    If they had as many fans show up to games as they do running their mouths they’d be a lot cooler on paper.

    I still say congrats on the Sugar Bowl but there were 7, SEVEN, Sebin, games that they barely won by a hair… and that folks, is not ballin. These tools think because they pulled a one game upset like a Boise St they have arrived… not the case. The ACC is going to chew these characters up and spit them out. Poor ol’ Charlie should have taken the money and ran to the SEC.

    Bald Guy,

    One of my UofL buddies told me that Charlie didn’t take the UT job because he knew what kind of team he was going to have this coming season, and for the 2014 season. I totally disagree with his assessment of the situation.

    Charlie didn’t leave Louisville because he didn’t want to deal with the pressure that would come with being the HC at a school like Tennessee. Charlie can go 8-4 for the next 20 years at Louisville, and they’ll put a bronze statue of him outside the “Pizza Palace”! If Charlie were to go 8-4 for 5 seasons at a school like Tennessee, he would be looking for a new job.

    Charlie has been quite open in saying that UL would struggle in the SEC. That’s obvious, what I can’t understand for the life of me is why UK fans think it is better to play in a tough conference and lose than play in a conference where you can win. Do you truly enjoy losing just so you can say “my conference is better”. No one doubts the SEC is better but do you really like losing every weekend in pure beatdowns just so you can brag about how good Alabama, Georgia, Florida etc is and how bad the Big East is – crazy….
