Black look is back, UofL football releases media guide

The media guide is out for the University of Louisville football program, featuring all-black uniforms on the cover so I guess we’re going to be seeing a lot of black this year.

Personally my favorite was always the black uniforms with the white helmets, a very distinctive look, good guy look. The all black approach reminds me too much of Cincinnati and the Bearcats, and is somewhat suggestive of a perfidious approach, probably because of a one-time rivalry with the UC program.

But if that’s what Coach Bobby Petrino and the current players prefer, I guess we’ll have to adapt.

The roster is still heavily laden with Florida players, with a total of 33 from the Sunshine State. There are 24 from Kentucky with at least seven players from Louisville. Georgia is next with 10, Ohio with nine, North Carolina and Indiana with four, and Tennessee and South Carolina with two. A couple of players — Aaron and Gabe Ahner — hail from Japan, believe it or not.

There are 22 seniors, 25 juniors, 23 sophomores, 16 redshirt freshmen (five-year players), and 19 players listed as freshmen.

    Couldn’t agree more about the uniform color. We don’t look want to look like Cincinnati. We don’t want to do away with the red and white combinations either.
