Updated Look At Louisville’s Schedule Reveals Few Opportunities Left For Signature Wins

Chris Humphrey

Now that Louisville has a total of three losses, let’s take an updated look the Cards resume…

I don’t think many expected Louisville to have three losses this early in the season, but zero of the three are resume damaging.

With that said, there aren’t as many opportunities to get signature wins in the ACC as most seasons.

No. 303 NC Central Win 87-58

No. 327 Eastern KY Win 99-67

The biggest issue for Louisville at this point is that there are currently just four opportunities left this season for quadrant 1 wins — road games at Duke, Florida State Virginia and NC State.
