Before getting into some news, I would like to apologize for the long gap in between updates, but we have experienced some massive computer issues here at the StraitCards compound. Without getting into every detail, the main computer crashed (for good this time) and the back-up laptop followed suit the next day. Suffice to say, it’s been a frustrating last several days for us here. However, we have now procured a new laptop and are ready to rock and roll with all the Louisville Cardinals news and notes you’ve come to somehow tolerate.
Now, onto the news.
Former Louisville fullback Joe Tronzo is heading up the radio booth. Today, UofL announced Tronzo will replace Tony Stallings as color analyst for Cardinal football broadcasts for the 2012 season. Tronzo joins longtime radio voice Paul Rodgers as the voices of Louisville football, besides of course Vance Bedford. Tronzo played in 49 games for the Cards from 2006-09, mainly at fullback, but also spent time on special teams.
As far as why Tony Stallings can no longer do games, there is no behind the scenes drama or anything like that. Stallings’ acting commitments will simply not allow him to continue to broadcast games. Personally, I thought Tony did a fine job and we wish him well with his acting career.
Joe Tronzo had this to say about his new venture.
“I’m excited to continue to be affiliated with the football program. I’m honored to work with a talent like Paul Rogers. I’m thrilled to be able to be involved with the football program during these exciting times, and I’m excited to be able to bring my knowledge of football to the loyal Cardinal fans.”
Welcome back to Cardinal football Joe.
