(Photo by Andy Lyons/Getty Images)Louisville has released a number of interesting helmet designs over the last few years, but perhaps no lid was better received than the red-on-black chrome version that debuted in 2013. Since it’s the offseason (and we have to pass the time in some way), we figured we’d show you a custom helmet recently made by the guys over at JVince Custom Lids. It’s the same design, but it instead features a black cherry base. Needless to say, it’s clean. Check it out:Louisville fans – would you support the team wearing these at some point in 2015?last_img read more

Video: Laquon Treadwell Is Healthy Enough To Do Backflips On A Trampoline

first_imgLaquon Treadwell is upside down as he performs a flip on a trampoline.Laquon TreadwellOle Miss wide receiver Laquon Treadwell suffered a gruesome broken leg late in the 2014 season, but has since made a remarkable recovery. He was able to join his teammates for spring practice, and posted an Instagram video this afternoon of himself doing backflips on a trampoline.Yes, you read that correctly. Treadwell’s leg looks plenty healthy in these two clips, but we’re thinking Rebels’ head coach Hugh Freeze’s heart will skip a beat or two when he sees them, if he hasn’t already. Not sure you want your star playmaker who is on the mend from a major injury to be on a trampoline.  still got it in me.. A video posted by @successfulquon on May 23, 2015 at 1:16pm PDT  A video posted by @successfulquon on May 23, 2015 at 1:21pm PDTlast_img

‘Solskjaer has brought happiness to Man Utd’

first_imgManchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero has said that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has brought happiness and a winning attitude back to Old Trafford since his appointment last month.Solskjaer has won all five games since he took charge to match the record of Sir Matt Busby , with the Red Devils playing some of the most attractive football in the Premier League since his appointment until the end of the season.The Norwegian took over at United following the departure of Jose Mourinho, who had reportedly created a toxic atmosphere amongst the players. Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘There is no creativity’ – Can Solskjaer get Man Utd scoring freely again? ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? Solskjaer seems to have turned that around and Romero says that the results that the caretaker boss has been getting have given the team the drive to push on and get a top-four finish.A commitment to attacking football under Solskjaer saw United score five goals in his first game against Cardiff – the first time they had hit that number since Sir Alex Ferguson’s final game, a 5-5 draw with West Brom in May 2013.And Romero says that United’s recent results have instilled a new-found confidence amongst the squad heading into the new year.“We’ve had a great run,” Romero told the club’s official website . “Not just the results, but the way in which we have won the games as well. Scoring five goals in one match was a big boost to confidence and was really something.“What we’re showing now, after a great Christmas, is only right for a club of this stature, [it] proves what we can do. The run we’ve had over Christmas and new year is testament to that.”Solskjaer won six Premier League titles and a Champions League during his playing career with United and Romero says that he has raised expectations at the club and brought happiness back to Old Trafford after their poor start to the season.Romero added: “[The manager] knows what he wants to achieve – both for the club and us as individuals. On the pitch and within the club, he has made it very clear from the outset so we know the expectation of us inside the club and externally.“You can see he has brought to the club a certain happiness and it is going well.”  Check out Goal’s Premier League 2019-20 fantasy football podcast for game tips, debate and rivalries.last_img read more

Clemson vs. Louisville Hype Video Will Get Tiger Fans Charged Up For Saturday

first_imgClemson coach Dabo Swinney yelling with his mouth wide open.YouTube/Tyler WirfsClemson vs. Louisville headlines this weekend’s college football action, and a new hype video is sure to get Tiger fans pumped.It is only Week 5, but Saturday night’s Clemson vs. Louisville game in Death Valley is HUGE. After the Cardinals’ dominant win over Florida State earlier in the season, a win on the road would virtually lock up the ACC Atlantic for Bobby Petrino’s club. A fifth straight monster game would make it very difficult to unseat Lamar Jackson atop the Heisman race, as well.Clemson isn’t going anywhere, though. The Tigers appear to have shaken off the rust of the first few weeks, and have played very good football as of late. And while Louisville looks amazing, the Tigers do have most of a national runner-up back, and plenty of big game experience.Tyler Wirfs, a Clemson fan who makes great Tiger hype videos, produced a very good one ahead of Saturday’s huge game. It is sure to get Tiger fans really pumped. Saturday can’t get here soon enough.Clemson and Louisville kick off at 8:00 p.m. The game will be broadcast on ABC.last_img read more

Every Liverpool fan has Kloppomania! – Matip

first_imgLiverpool’s Joel Matip has praised manager Jurgen Klopp’s impact on both the team and the city, suggesting that every Reds fan on Merseyside is experiencing ‘Kloppomania’ following their Champions League triumph.Matip played a vital role for Liverpool in their run to claiming a sixth European title, with the 27-year-old missing just one the club’s knockout matches in the competition.But rather than take any credit for the Reds’ glory in Madrid, Matip was indeed keen to highlight the difference Klopp has made on the side’s fortunes. Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘There is no creativity’ – Can Solskjaer get Man Utd scoring freely again? ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? “Everyone in Liverpool has worked very hard for this,” the former Schalke man told Bild am Sonntag .“But Klopp is the decisive factor. He has put the team together and led it to where it is now. No question: Klopp is the mastermind of this title.“He is a ‘human catcher’ who conquered the whole city of Liverpool – or maybe even whole England – with his enthusiasm. The club, the city, the team, everyone is straight behind him, unconditionally.“It’s something like Kloppomania here! Because he is how he is. Genuine and real – simply Kloppo.”As well as preventing Tottenham from scoring in the  Champions League final , Matip also proved particularly handy at the other end. It was his 87th-minute pass that fell perfectly for Divock Origi in the box and the Belgian duly dispatched it to add a second and final goal for the Reds.And Matip admits the scenes in Madrid – and back in Liverpool – were like nothing he has ever seen before.Liverpool parade“It is still hard to realise,” said Matip. “It’s simply madness what our win has triggered.“The whole city was dressed in red when we came back from Madrid. The pure joy, like an ecstasy. These pictures will always remain in my mind. An unbelievable experience.”Matip joined Liverpool in 2016 from the Bundesliga and, while looking forward to the upcoming campaign on Merseyside, revealed he could one day return to the German top flight.”In football nothing is impossible. At the moment I still have two years remaining in my contract here at Liverpool.“After some problems and injuries at the beginning meanwhile I feel very comfortable here. And I’ve been more mature as a player and as a person here in England.” Subscribe to Goal’s Liverpool Correspondent Neil Jones’ weekly email bringing you the best Liverpool FC writing from around the weblast_img read more
