WSoc Schedule released -- WBB lands 6'5" grad transfer -- FRIDAY CARDINAL COUPLE


Welcome to July and the holiday weekend, readers.  We are six weeks away from the opening of the 2022 fall sports seasons.  But who's counting?

Fall sports have released their schedules for the coming seasons as has been repeated on Cardinal Couple all week.  I know the guys are really looking forward to covering another season of matches as we can expect Jeff to dive deeper into the Volleyball schedule and Case to dissect the Soccer schedule and rosters and what we can hope to expect in the fall.  

We can finally get some names and dates on our calendars to look forward to.  

Women's Soccer

The Cardinals 16-match slate features eight regular season home games and 1 preseason exhibition at Dr. Mark & Cindy Lynn Stadium. Nine of the sixteen matches are against teams that reached the NCAA Tournament last year.   

To start, UofL will host a preseason exhibition against Cincinnati on August 12 before the season opener on August 18 against UIC. The Cards will then host reigning Big East regular season champions Xavier a week later on August 25.

UofL will hit the road and travel to Northern Kentucky on August 28 before a neutral site match against 2021 AAC Tournament champions Memphis on Sept. 1 followed by a Labor Day weekend match with James Madison on Sept. 4.

The Cardinals return home to take on Indiana on Sept. 8 and then open ACC play on their home field with Miami on Sept. 17.

Louisville hits the road on Sept. 22 to play reigning national champions Florida State and follows it up with a Sept. 25 stop at Virginia, which won the ACC regular season title last season. The three-match road swing concludes on Oct. 1 at Pitt.

The Cards play the next three matches at home against Clemson (Oct. 6), Boston College (Oct. 9), and Notre Dame (Oct. 15).

The road portion of the regular season schedule concludes with trips to NC State and Duke on Oct. 20 and 23, respectively. Louisville then closes out the regular season by hosting North Carolina on Oct. 27.

Louisville posted a 7-7-2 overall record in 2021 and has won 194 matches during Ferguson-Dayes' tenure.

Coach Walz and staff picked up veteran center, Josie Williams, from Utah Valley State on Thursday, the program announced.  In four seasons with the Wolverines, Williams is one on the top players in school history, finishing in the top 10 in many of the school's statistical categories. Williams closed her tenure at Utah Valley State, sixth in scoring with 1,221 points, third with 783 rebounds and 110 blocks, and second with a 52.1 shooting percentage. Her 7.4 rebounding average per game and 77.6 free throw percentage ranks third in school history.

Go Cards! 



  1. This move to pick up Williams is brilliant. Rebounding was going to be a question mark with Engstler gone. Now. Williams and Mobley will make up that loss.

  2. A current roster (minus Williams) is up at Go Cards, but it’s not in the menu yet.. I just happened upon it. Nice to have all the new names in one place

    1. 15 players, but they need to add new coach and delete Purcell. Funny that Rocco, a football guy, is sports SID-ing for WBB, Got to think this is temporary until the new guy from Notre Dame arrives.

    2. I correct myself. The 22-23 roster is in the drop down menu. Either it was added after I checked, or my gray cells are failing me again. Ugh.

  3. And then I left my name off my reply to myself…

  4. Welcome aboard Tony! I occasionally go back and look at comments from "old" articles. Enjoy the site and never agree with ANYTHING Jeff says (LOL)'ll be fine here


    1. Thanks for the welcome! I’m a ‘81 UofL alum and a longtime fan of women’s sports at UofL. You guys do a great job of keeping us informed and entertained 🙂
