It's that time of year again folks.....

Strangely and rather inexplicably, Louisville is not on this list..... they must be #13

Sorry Tex, no TCU either.

Ponch,

Not fair.

Those are all div1 teams.

Louisville is 1A

I mean really..can you imagine Louisville on the same field as Ohio state, Bama, LSU etc?

Then again, Appalachain State did upset Michigan a few years ago

Surely Louisville has a top 12 team in some sport.............lacrosse? Table tennis? Pole smoking?

Just because Louisville is in the ACC doesn't mean that it can't be on the field with those other teams.

And they kind of have to be - they're part of Division 1 - FBS, just like the University of Illinois (well, U of I shouldn't be on the field with Ohio State, Bama, and LSU either!).

I don't think there is any more Division 1A at the college football level, is there? Didn't that go away with the creation of the FCS?

My comment was an attempt at humor and a slam against louisville and it's fans (read Junk) and hopefully most people took it as such.

Division 1A is now Division 1FBS and Division 1AA is now Division 1FCS. Either way, Louisville isn't one of the 12 most relevant teams

And mine was a slam not just against Louisville, but against the ACC as well. And since U of I is such a pathetically weak team (and I live in Illinois), I couldn't help but toss one at them.

Actually, my favorite team is on the list (#7), and I got to see them whup up on Louisville at the Belk Bowl!

GO DAWGS!

Hey Ponch, those teams you've named COMBINED don't have as many titles as we have in OTHER sports! Alabama is a ONE TRICK PONY who Louisville DEMOLISHED the last time they played! Do you need another reminder?


Let's see what your other schools have done in OTHER sports! Recently, Louisville had the BEST overall college sports record in ALL sports over the last 4 or 5 years! None of the schools you named come even CLOSE! Look it up!

Don't belong on the field with the big boys? Look!

"Best in College Sports: Ohio State, L'ville, UCLA lead 2014-15 Rankings"

NO 'BAMA!

How many players were drafted to the NFL last year from 'Bama? Not More than Louisville!

I could go and on but booty is a callin'!

Who cares about college basketball? Boring.

Recall that the topic is college FOOTBALL, not football plus a few other unimportant sports.

But since I like to give credit where credit is due, I will tell you that I absolutely LOVED that Sugar Bowl appearance by Louisville - they destroyed a Florida team that never got their heads in the game, and Teddy B was fantastic.

I think Grantham is an idiot, and Petrino has repeatedly demonstrated his moral bankruptcy, so if you'll get rid of those two, then I'll root for Louisville again (except when they meet up with the Bulldogs of course!).

Petrino went 49-7 during his first stint here at Louisville so getting rid of him is going to be like making Notre Dame give up their TV contract and join a conference. Same with the D coordinator. He's getting a million plus to be here so he definitely ain't leaving. But I'll tell you what. Petrino is taking on all comers so The 'Ville will meet up with Georgia again... that's IF Georgia will agree to play them.

I don't think that UGA is afraid of Louisville. Florida probably is, but not the Dawgs.

And if you guys are happy with Penistro - leaving the Falcons like he did, then embarrassing himself and shaming his family in Arkansas, then it's OK with me. It just doesn't seem like that's the kind of man that you'd want coaching your kids.

And Grantham will soon show that he's not going to be worth much. His record at UGA was pretty good his first year, then went downhill from there. I suspect it won't take long for him to wear out his welcome at Louisville - but we'll see. Maybe playing in the ACC will be a better fit for Grantham than the competition in the SEC.

It's interesting that you bring up the ACC/SEC thing. Take a look at this. Damn vBulletin software won't allow me to embed a tweet:

Look at where little ol' Louisville lands. This was a C-USA team not too many years ago and was 3 points from playing for a national title in 2005. Louisville football is going places! The other sports have pretty much already been there! This was 2 years ago! Louisville is collecting hardware like nobody's business in 4 different sports!

Is tiddlywinks included in that?


I know reading with understanding isn't your strong point..... Alabama is on that list you posted.

Quote:

Seven

I just looked at the pre-season AP and USA Today coaches polls and something is definitely wrong...... Louisville isn't in either one of them.

Someday, not in my lifetime, Louisville will play for that National title and have a stadium that holds 101,000 people.
