PREVIEW: Louisville vs. Miami

BLACKOUT

“Talk is cheap. Let’s go play.” —– Johnny Unitas

Since December 29th, all Louisville Football fans have had, is talk.   Tomorrow night, we’re done talking and on to playing the 2014 season.  The wait for Monday Night Football may build excitement among the Cardinal Faithful and the rainy weather on Saturday certainly proved to be a blessing that the game was on Monday.  But the off-season, like all off-seasons are, has been too long.

It’s a new era.  ACC.  Bobby Petrino & Staff, new quarterback, new defense.  There is a lot to see and take note of.  But let’s get started.

Miami Offense vs. Louisville Defense

BLACKOUT

Miami’s Offense is going to be MUCH different than what Louisville fans saw in the Russell Athletic Bowl.  First & foremost, we can’t write another sentence without saying that DUKE JOHNSON changes everything for the Miami offense.  Duke Johnson is the real deal at the running back position and was in the middle of an incredible season in 2013 before injuring his ankle in a losing effort vs. Florida State.

Duke Johnson is hard to contain.  He hits the edge HARD, he has tremendous vision and explosiveness to get through the holes.  Johnson will play in the NFL and he is priority #1 for Louisville. Miami returns 4 lineman that started the Russell Athletic Bowl.  Louisville limited the Canes to 174 yards of offense and just 14 yards rushing in December during the bowl game...

Louisville Offense vs. Miami Defense

BLACKOUT

Louisville’s offense in 2014 has many familiar faces that have returned since 2013. Bobby Petrino has been an offensive dynamo throughout his career in college football and the expectation should be the same here with a great deal of returning talent from the conservative 28th best offense in the nation in 2013.

Of course, Louisville is replacing Teddy Bridgewater, Damian Copeland, Senorise Perry and will be without the services of perhaps the best Wide Receiver in college football.  So there is certainly legitimate reason for concern.  The good news is that there are weapons on deck for the Cardinals.

Starting with Quarterback Will Gardner (6’5, 226, Soph) the offense is going to rely almost completely on the young shoulders of the Louisville Sophomore...
