Football News

Couple quick notes on the football team...

- The Cards scrimmaged Tuesday and sophomore WR Doug Beaumont has continued to impress Coach Krathorpe....

"He's a very good player, very versatile player for us who can play any of the four wide receiver positions. He's a great special teams player (who) did a lot of things for us last year in that role. Now his role has expanded a little bit because he's going to be a counted on guy on the offensive side of the ball and I think he's ready to step up and be counted."

- Matt Simms was suspended for 4 games by Koach for what the university called "a violation of team rules". No official reason for suspension, but pictures floating around the net (which you will never see here - the guy is still on the team) may give an indication of what he might be guilty of. However with the new curfew in effect, Kragthorpe might be making an example out of a guy he knows won't be playing in at least the first 4 games.

- Correction about Justin Burke, the transfer from NC State. I said he would be eligible for three years when it is only two. With a chance to spread the ball around in a more potent offense than he had with the Wolfpack, Burke will be better used in Louisville. He is a prolific passer and an extremely intelligent young man who WILL compete for the job next year with Tyler Wolfe, possibly Simms and freshman Zach Stout.
