2014 saw the Cardinals playing in their third conference in three years, and the hardest one yet at that in the ACC. But even the loss of QB Teddy Bridgewater and coach Charlie Strong didn’t spell the end for this era of great Louisville football. Coach Bobby Petrino used a number of quarterbacks and NFL-caliber talent on both sides of the ball to win nine games last year. Louisville had an incredible 10 players drafted, including WR DeVante Parker with the #14 overall pick. However, that does mean there is some serious transitioning going on here. The offensive line is rebuilding, top three receivers are gone, and there will be a strong reliance on transfers to replicate production of the draftees. The defense also must replace seven starters, although the front seven remains strong. This definitely isn’t the year for a top-heavy schedule, but they have one anyway with Auburn in Week 1 and Clemson in Week 3. Louisville will need to figure out as much as possible about the offense in camp because you don’t get many mulligans against either of those two. The Louisville Cardinals operate under head coach Bobby Petrino at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium in Louisville. Petrino, who previously coached UL between 2003 and 2006, returned in 2014 to find the program in similar shape to the way he left it--buzzing with talks of national contention. Former coach Charlie Strong led them to a 12-1 season in 2013, the second-best in school history behind Petrino’s 2006 squad. The ACC provides a new challenge for Petrino and is a better competitive fit for a school that has been nationally ranked in 10 of the 15 seasons since 2000 and has qualified for a bowl in 14 of the last 17, including five in a row. Louisville has 18 bowl appearances and eight conference titles to its name. After spending time in the Missouri Valley Conference, CUSA, the Big East, and even a year in the AAC, their arrival in the ACC marks a rare full ascension from irrelevance to Power 5. UL has sent 141 players to the NFL including Johnny Unitas, Ted Washington, Elvis Dumervil, Deion Branch, David Akers, Harry Douglas, Michael Bush, and William Gay. They share an active rivalry with Kentucky and on-hold rivalries with Memphis and Cincinnati. The 2015 home schedule includes Auburn, Houston, Clemson, Samford, Boston College, Syracuse, and UVA.
