  • Photos: Take a look at Louisville’s planned stadium expansion

    Louisville will announce a “major athletics project” at 11 a.m. on Friday, but thanks to the Louisville Courier-Journal and some tweet-happy Cardinals boosters, we already know what Tom Jurich and company have in store.

    Louisville will pursue a $55 million expansion to Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium intended to “close the bowl” at the 55,000 seat stadium. In addition to new seating, the expansion is expected to include new field-level suites, improved club amenities and all the accoutrements one would expect from a modern stadium.

  • Video: “One Team, One Heartbeat”

    Friday night lights are back on fields of green across this country. This is a beautiful thing.

    Indiana TV station WANE runs a weekly feature throughout football season highlighting one high school coach per week, and last week it was New Haven’s Jim Rowland. As you’ll see, his locker room speech game is strong, and so is his coaching ability. New Haven would go on to defeat Heritage, 42-0.

    Check it out.

    On the opening night of high school football in Texas, Midland Trinity HS (TX) and Loraine HS (TX) combined for a total of 174 points, with Midland Trinity coming out on the winning end, 108-66.

    In the interest of full disclosure, we are talking about 6-man football here, and not the traditional 11-man. But regardless of how many people are on the field, that score is wild.

    It’s hard to believe, but according to USA Today, Midland Trinity’s mark of 108 points is actually four points shy of the state record, set by Paint Rock HS (TX) in 2010. However, the combined score of 174 between the two teams is the most in national six-man football history, breaking a South Dakota record (a 94-49 score) that had stood for over 60 years.

    Trinity led the game 68-42 at the half, and had 100 points and a forty two point lead at the end of the third quarter (100-58).

  • Friday’s One Minute Warm Up

    To get the blood pumping:

    – Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh thought someone was pranking him when he got the call from Michael Jordan.

    – The best headshot in college football has been located, and it belongs to Nebraska defensive end Ross Dzuris (who also deserves a lifetime supply of mustache wax).

    – This is my new favorite GIF.

    – God bless minor league baseball and their uniform creativity.

    – These recruiting announcements keep getting more and more ridiculous. What’s next?

    – Videos of deserving walk-ons getting scholarships never get old. Here’s David Shaw awarding one to Stanford inside linebacker Craig Jones.

    – Here’s a look at a few well done hype videos from the small college and high school ranks. First one is Amherst College (D-III – MA) and the second is East Rowan HS (NC).
