Louisville Cardinals — 2015 Syracuse football scouting report

Louisville trounced SU last season

The Courier-Journal’s Steve Jones calls in to chat about Syracuse’s upcoming game with Louisville on The Juice on the Cuse Podcast hosted by SNY.tv. Editor in Chief Brad Bierman then joins in to talk about Scott Shafer’s job security and a look toward the basketball season.

Here are the highlights from the show:

Wes Cheng: I say 2015 Louisville football. You say, what? What’s led to some of the early struggles for this Louisville team?

Steve Jones: I would say up and down. It’s a tale of two different halves of their schedule and the difficulty level of the first half of their schedule. They started 0-3 and 2-4. But the second half of the season is much, much easier. They have Wake Forest, Boston College, Syracuse, Pitt and Kentucky. There’s no really imposing opponents in there, and they could potentially win all of them, which would totally shake up how the season goes.

WC: How do you see Saturday’s game shaking out?

SJ: I would expect them to be able to put a lot of pressure on Syracuse and contain them. Louisville has a shaky offensive line, but they’re improving. I’m thinking Louisville will win another low scoring game. They’ll get out of there with a 21-14 kind of score.
