Cardinal Football

Lets Talk %

These are the percentage chances I give the Cards in each game this year. Keep in mind this is a pre-season outlook, a lot of things will change throughout the year, that will likely sway the odds.
-Kentucky: 50% – Win or lose, I won’t be surprised either way. All the pressure is on the Cats. If we can control the clock and get a big game from Anderson and Powell, I think we win a close one.
-Eastern Kentucky: 95% – EKU, need I say more? This could be ugly. Hopefully this is a game where Coach Strong can experiment and try some different things.
-@ Oregon State: 30% – I don’t like our chances against the Beav. Traveling across the country to face arguably the nations best running back in Jacquizz Rodgers won’t be an easy task for the Cardinals.
-@ Arkansas State: 99.9% – Maybe it’s me, but I am actually embarrassed that Louisville is traveling to Jonesboro to play the Red Wolves. Playing a Sun-Belt team on the road shows how far our program has fallen in three years.
-Memphis: 75% – As bad as Louisville is projected to be this year, Memphis will be worse.
-Cincinatti: 35% – Our defense is suspect and Natti has weapons all over the field. The Cards and Bearcats have had competitive match-ups in recent years, regardless of either teams record, but I think Louisville will have trouble containing QB Zach Collaros.
-Connecticut: 45% – UCONN has returned a lot on both sides of the ball and are ranked 4th in the pre-season media poll. I expect a close game at Papa Johns.
-@ Pittsburgh: 20% – Pitt has a good chance to run the table this year. Put up or shut up for Wannstedt.
-@ Syracuse: 75% – Cuse was worse than Louisville last year and I don’t think they will be any better this season. Marrone seems like a good fit, but he has lost over 20 players in the past year. Cards by ten.
-South Florida: 40% – In the past few years the home team has usually won this match up. However, I think the Bulls have the second best offense in the Big East behind Pittsburgh. The thought of our defense chasing BJ Daniels all over the field scares me.
-West Virginia: 45%- West Virginia is another team that brings back a lot of offense. Noel Devine is arguably the best player in the conference and Jock Sanders is a big time wide receiver. Hopefully Charlie Strong can make this a great rivalry again.
-@ Rutgers: 40% – Rutgers has some weapons on offense, but has lost a lot on defense. Last time Louisville went to Rutgers they lost 63-14. Hopefully some of the guys who played in that game in 2008 will seek revenge.
