On Monday we recorded episode five of Cardinal Connect TV. Unfortunately, there is always much more to talk about when bad things happen. Myself, JD Coffey, Gabe Duverge and Brandon Zellers spent the majority of the show talking about the disappointing loss to Virginia and the concerns for the remainder of the season.
We recorded episode four of Cardinal Connect TV on Monday evening. In this week’s show we recapped the first two football games of the season and looked ahead to the first ACC road game in program history. We also discussed the the possibility of both Will Gardner and Reggie Bonnafon getting action at quarterback. Last but certainly not least we broke down Rick Pitino’s 2015 recruiting class now being ranked No. 1 with the addition of Antonio Blakeney.

We recorded our third episode of Cardinal Connect TV on Wednesday evening recapping Louisville’s big season opening win against Miami. There were plenty of positive takeaways from the game, but there are also a couple of areas that could use some improvement. Check it out!
On Thursday evening we recorded our second episode of the weekly webcast, which we are now calling Cardinal Connect TV. Brandon Zellers and myself discussed the DeVante Parker injury and how it will impact the team long term. We also spent a good majority of the show previewing the big season opener against Miami and briefly discussed the expected tailgating atmosphere.
We recorded our debut webcast over the weekend. The first edition was somewhat of a trial run, but make sure you check it out. The audio of the show will still be available as a standard podcast and will also still be available on iTunes. You should be able to view from within The Cardinal Connect smart phone app without any problems. If you’re watching on your mobile device, make sure your phone isn’t on silent/vibrate.
Considering it had been almost two months since our last podcast, we spent the majority of the show talking Cardinal football. We recapped media day and also looked at the AP Top 25 poll as it was released right before we started recording. We also touched on Rick Pitnio’s 2014 recruiting class as he and his staff are assembling one of the top classes in program history.
On Wednesday evening we recorded out first podcast in a couple of weeks. Believe it or not, there was actually quite a bit to run down. We spent the first part of the show recapping Rick Pitino’s recent summer update on his team. Two key talking points from there was the expectations for the freshman class and also the position comments about senior Wayne Blackshear.
We spent a good amount of time breaking down the recent “All Time Pitino Team For $15″ game.
The rest of the show we discussed football recruiting, the Kentucky, UofL game moving to ESPN2 and the World Cup following in the city of Louisville. We also had a healthy discussion about the recent article from ESPN’s Jeff Goodman regarding which college coaches do the best at preparing their players for the NBA.
After a three week hiatus, the crew and I finally sat down to record another podcast. Fortunately, other than the red hot Cardinal baseball club, the news has been relatively slow over the past couple of weeks. However, that doesn’t mean we couldn’t find plenty to talk about.
On today’s show we spent a little time recapping Louisville baseball’s regional title win and briefly looked ahead to the Super Regional. We also discussed Russ Smith & Luke Hancock’s recent NBA workouts, Montrezl Harrell’s significant return, the freak athlete is DeVante Parker and last but not least, my recent trip to Mexico.
On Monday evening (5/12/2014) we recorded our second podcast since leaving the daily radio show. Although it’s been a couple of weeks, there weren’t a ton of topics to dive into other than the NFL draft.
We spent some time talking about the four Louisville players drafted and how they fit with their new teams. We also mentioned the undrafted free agent signings. Other topics include David Padgett rejoining the staff, Mangok Mathiang’s arrest a few other surprises.
