Despite a perfect start, UofL is not getting much respect

09/08/2014 11:30 AM

The Louisville Cardinals have had a perfect start to the season, winning both their games, beating Miami on national TV, and demolishing Murray State in a game where almost the entire roster played, and staying relatively healthy in the process. Despite the 2-0 record, voters are mixed on how they feel about the Cards. In the AP Poll (media), UofL is up 4 spots to 21st, but in the USA Today rankings (coaches), the Cardinals are nowhere to be found. Louisville is preparing for its first road game, Saturday at 12:30 p.m. against 1-1 Virginia. Here are the full rankings for both the AP and Coaches polls:
