delivered by Welcome the streaming for joining in, uh, today I'm gonna be talking about I'm a woman Be breaking down the Louisville Cardinals 2020 football schedule.
This past season did pretty well exceed expectations on 2018 they went to and 10 overall.
S O is a major disappointment on tough year for the football program.
And this this pastor, they bounce back, going from two and 10 to going to seven and 500 other season and winning your bowl game against an SEC team.
So they had a pretty good season.
Yeah, very successful off season for the for the Cardinals.
And they'll be looking to do even better.
Definitely one of the better teams, Um, in their division.
The A CC really just Clemson And then them, um, you know, besides, from clumps in their division.
So they're a very good football team.
What we weren't able to contend with Clemson in their game last year, but still the definitely improving um, not known to be a football school, but a great season last year, going eight and five overall.
Um, the good thing for Louisville is this year, this upcoming year they'll have many chances to avenge the five losses they have this past season.
I think I think all five of their losses, um, they have an opportunity, opportunity to avenge They won't avenge all the my opinion, but still, um, they'll have an opportunity to.
So it was a great seat past past I've overall, um, and they'll just be looking to improve, but definitely a major step up from 2018 when they want to intend I'ma strode out right away.
Well, first, I'm gonna break down in 2019 schedule a little bit, and I'll talk about 2020 and my schedule breakdown for that.
Uh, so strong with season, they lost Notre Dame.
That was expected.
They actually put up a pretty good fight.
Um, against Notre Dame Note.
No Dame put up some style points at the end, but they gave them a run for their money, their winning at certain points in that game.
For a lot of the first half us.
They had a pretty get ah, they had a pretty good game still lost by couple scores.
But that that was the first sign where you saw that they were actually a decent team.
Um, who's like on the first week of the season on a Monday night they played against Eastern Kentucky? Western Kentucky? One.
Those two pretty easily no surprise.
Lost the Florida State.
No surprise there.
Be Boston College.
Be wake for stores were two big wins, especially because at that time this season, Wait Force is doing very well.
They had, like only one loss from they might've been on a feat at the time, so that was a big win for them.
They lost the clumps and no surprise.
There they beat Virginia.
They lost to Miami.
That was a shocker.
Um, and A B N C State beat Syracuse, and they ended up the revelers she's in getting blown out by Kentucky.
Ah, that was a big surprise as well.
They beat Mississippi State in their bowl game, so overall mixed.
You know, it was kind distant, but the end of the day, still a pretty good season overall, finishing 75.
But their losses were pretty spread out there, just like they would have a few wins and wins thing.
They would have a loss, few winds that loss pretty pretty spread out.
But anyway, I'm gonna get this 2020 schedule right away, Nick.
Magnetic following me.
Uh, first game of the season.
In my opinion, NC State was the second worst team in the A C.
C. This past season.
They had high expectations because they're one of the best teams in the A. C.
In 2018 and they didn't succeed them.
And they'd want the easy schedules for any power five program in America.
One conference game in a 16 10 win in Syracuse.
That's not very good.
And their two other winds are.
The three other ones were against easy nonconference opponents.
So definitely disappointing Year.
Um, for NC State this past season season, I don't think they're gonna gain better this upcoming season.
I have Louisville win this one pretty easily at home rig to right off the gate.
You get Clemson at clumps and this is going to be a tough one.
Um, I don't think Louisville is gonna be ableto handle playing at Clemson.
I take lumps and win this one by quite a few scores, like they did playing Louisville this past season.
So yeah, I think Clemson get the job done.
You still got Lawrence there.
E t ends coming back. That's a huge.
That's huge because Muriel expecting that we're gonna have a great run game again.
Great past game.
Got a lot of weapons, Isaiah.
Sentences leaving, leaving on the defense.
But they have the best recruiting class in the nation is still gonna have a great defense.
Anyway, with other guys returning.
Ah, so their defense will be stacked, their offense will be stack.
And they have double Sweeney at coach.
So they're they're bearing rate shape right now. Clemson.
They're gonna be the preseason number one.
No doubt about it.
Even Only lost the national championship game.
Ellis, you did come eso Clemson's gonna be number one.
Yeah, they'll be number one in this game during this week.
Ah, So overall, it's just it's it's not gonna happen for Louisville.
It's just too tough of a game S o.
I think claims will win that one by probably I would say 30 points.
At least I'll be at my opinion, murder state.
Um, you know, really don't know too much about murder state football.
I believe they're in F.
Ah, murder state.
Really The only thing.
The only thing I really remember about them.
The only thing I know about the program is that John Moran played basketball there.
Um, that that's really it.
Ah, I think in the end, I think, um, I think we roll in this one pretty easily.
It's a home game for them on F.
C s squad should be no problem whatsoever.
I have Louisville winning by quite a few scores.
Probably 2022 28 point.
Get that they get the job done.
Their Western Kentucky pretty average team, I think, from the Conference USA.
They won their bull game and they destroyed Arkansas at Arkansas, Turning out to not be really.
It's not really an accomplishment anymore, because Arkansas just so bad.
But anyway, they did beat Arkansas.
That was a big win for them, at least it for their standards.
It was a big one.
Uh, I don't think Western Kentucky, though it has what it takes to beat Louisville.
I think mover wins this one pretty easily.
Just a very average Conference USA team against a pretty good day C C team.
I have Louisville get the job done at Syracuse.
I wanna pick Syracuse because I like so accused.
But she's not gonna happen.
Started Case is not a good school.
It on the great cruel class.
At least not good school for football.
I think Louisville gets the job done here.
Again, pretty easily.
It's in Syracuse, but still, um, send a dome.
I don't think it'll matter.
I've I've leveling that one pretty easily.
Just another just another easy game for believable.
They really do have a pretty easy schedule.
They really d'oh s o.
They wouldn't They went at Syracuse.
No surprise there.
Next game about Boston College and another team I like and I hope they beat Louisville.
But if I'm being realistic, I don't think they will.
Boston College pushed Louisville to limit this past season on Lee Ross by believe two points at Louisville s Oh, definitely can play live with Louisville.
They're getting a new coach and a J halfway, the previously defense coordinator for Ohio State.
That's good for them, but also losing a J.
They're running back who was a big factor of why that team was bull eligible this past season.
I think that's gonna hurt them a little bit. Losing a J. Dylan.
Ah, but again, you're getting half Leah.
Coach, um, you're getting some other Ohio State assistant coaches that half we took with him.
Ah, but I still I still think in the end levels better team.
So I'll take the Cardinals to be Florida State.
They lost a forger state this past season being interesting.
14 states gonna be better.
They have Mike Norval, Coach.
We'll see how this game goes.
I think it's gonna be a revenge game for Roy.
Villain is a home game.
I'm gonna take level when the very close.
When I think maybe like, a one possession game, I believe a woman.
So at this point looking Louisville and they're six and one, that's pretty impressive.
They're probably gonna be actually in the preseason top 25 s.
So this is kind of like a start that Wake Forest have they started like this, like, six and one, I think, Um, and from this point on is when you get the tough stretch, it doesn't get any easier from this point out.
Uh, after for Interstate, you play Virginia Tech Virginia text another tape from the A C C.
That probably will be in the top 25.
They are, in my opinion, a a dark horse toe win on the A C.
Possibly I don't Realistically, I don't think they'll be Clemson, but people are saying they're on the rise.
People think they have a legitimate shot out winning their vision.
Um, you know, we'll see you in season That race to some people are even saying Playoff for a Virginia Tech.
I think Virginia Tech's gonna be a pretty good team next year.
It's a home game from Louisville.
Bomb taking Reggie in Texas slightly edgy at Louisville.
Virginia's losing their core back, Bryce Perkins.
He's a He's a big key off.
Why that team or he was a big key of lot of team was so successful that past season he led the team in rush odds.
He obviously led the team in past yards because he's the quarterback, Um, and he played pretty well against Florida to be Ost.
Lord's got good defense, and he, he took them to limit.
It was only an eight point game in the Orange Bowl in a game where most people didn't give them a chance.
So they're losing him.
I think that will hurt them.
But the end of the day, they're still pretty talented.
I think Louisville is gonna win this game, too.
It's a road game for Louisville.
I think it's a tough place to play.
I'll take uh, Virginia to him.
Leveled second straight loss.
Wait for us is losing Jamie Newman. That quarterback.
Um, big factor of why the team was good going, George.
And now we'll see how Ah, he is the starter.
They're thinking about it.
Ah, it's a home game for Ah, Louisville.
I don't think they're gonna lose three in a row.
I'll take a little evil to win this one at Notre Dame, three out of three out of four games.
We have a loss here with all the respect of Louisville.
I know they played pretty well against no dame this past season.
In Week one. I don't think it's gonna happen again.
I think no dame at this point.
If if they'd be clumps and they'll be obviously all they would have to do from that point on us went out so they'll be very determined to make the but Clemson keyword if they won't.
But still, you know at this point they might be.
They might be like a one loss team, too, so they might be trying to get into, like, an Orange Bowl game off.
There's still a lot to play for here from Notre Dame, I think will be very determined.
It's a home game for Notre Dame in South Bend.
I'll take no **** it when this one.
I think Louisville gets its third has the third loss in four games and final game rival Kentucky.
This time, it's a home game.
They got absolutely blown out by Kentucky.
This past season in Kentucky wasn't very good.
Only seven or five always surprised.
This time around.
You know Kentucky's gonna be, I think, a little bit better where this past season, they have Joey Gatewood, a quarterback from Auburn.
Yeah, he'll probably making this start.
Week one will see eso a good team.
We'll see how they do.
I'm taking Louisville, the one this one, though I'm taking Louisville, it's a home game.
I think they get revenge on the rival and these rival games, anything can happen.
They're always about, you know, besides, from a few Siri's in like robberies, Um, usually rival games like team switch off winning games constantly.
There's not many rivalries where a team dominates the rivalry besides, besides, from a couple on Bay ones.
I'll take Louisville when this one.
So overall they finish eight and four on the season and my pain. That's pretty good.
That's one better than they did in the regular season the year before, in 2019 a fish seven and five of the regular season this past season and won their bowl game.
Maybe another, like maybe like a belt bull or maybe another like Music, City Bowl, something like that.
I think it's a pretty good ball game to go.
Do I like where Louisville is that right now I think they can win their bowl game.
So realistically I think in nine and four is a good prediction for them.
I think that's that's probably their goal.
I really don't think they'll be clumps or Notre Dame.
I do think they might get upset some 40.
94 I think it's a good prediction for them.
I just I you know, good team, but they've still got a couple of tough games on their schedule.
I will see how it goes again, just just just that on.
You know, some of these winds that some of these games have them winning, maybe want them to lose.
It's like I said, some of these games, I have them losing, like, you know, Virginia Tech of Virginia.
They might win one of those.
So I would say just in regular season in for realistic prediction, we'll see how it shakes out.
Ah, but that's it for now, guys, thank for joining in.
I do appreciate it.
I'll see if I can get on tomorrow.
I still don't know how, but as it for now.
