You can take the girl out of Kentucky, but there's no way you're taking Kentucky out of this girl.

Jennifer Lawrence has loaned her voice to the University of Louisville, the Oscar winner serving as narrator of a minute-long video posted to MeettheCards.com that sings the college's praises in honor of its move to the Atlantic Coast Conference from its longtime NCAA home in the American Athletic Conference.

I grew up in the Derby City, home to a produ and stories university, filled with rich athletic tradition and packed with fans who are as loyal and passionate as any in college sports," the video begins, Lawrence's voice instantly recognizable. Louisville's move to the ACC became official today, more than seven months after officials from both organizations agreed to the deal.

The men's basketball team reached the Sweet 16 of the 2014 NCAA Tournament, where they were upset by eventual champion Kentucky. Lawrence showed her March Madness support in a Cardinals T-shirt, forming the school's signature "L."

And perhaps a silver linings playbook is just what the Cards need to take 'em all the way to the top next year!

"This region and these people live and breathe the Cardinals," Lawrence continues in the video. "The ‘L' is the sign that connects all of us to one strong and united Card Nation.

Now the next chapter of Louisville athletics is upon us as we join the prestigious ACC and prepare to face some of history's most accomplished and elite collegiate programs."

The ultimate message, the one that will be echoing around campus as the Cards gear up for another year of competition?

"Let's do this," J.Law concludes reports E News.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
