The Cardinal Connect:
Instead of giving Louisville the credit they deserve for coming out last night and completely owning the Florida Gators, you’ll hear some folks mention that Florida was “disinterested” in the game.
Florida’s poor performance is being talked about more than Louisville’s stellar play. After re-watching the game this afternoon, Louisville deserves all the credit for making Florida look the way they did on Wednesday night.
Florida came out as jacked up as they could be for the game. Unfortunately for the Gators, Louisville knocked them in the mouth and they were never able to recover.

NEW ORLEANS -- They were two of the centerpieces behind Florida's turnaround this season, which likely was at the center of decisions made by junior safety Matt Elam and junior defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd to make themselves available for the 2013 NFL draft.

College football is always full of surprises. Louisvile's control and domination of the Florida Gators through much of the Sugar Bowl was certainly the best surprise of the bowl season. It's quarterback performances and coaching efforts like that which keep fans on the edge of their seats as soon as kickoff hits.
However, one surprise that didn't come from that game...
In what was a pretty lopsided upset, the #21 Louisville Cardinals beat the #3 Florida Gators 33-23. Charlie Strong’s Cardinals came out firing on all cylinders, scoring on an interception 15 seconds into the first quarter and an 83 yard drive with 6:24 left in the 1st and never looked back. The Cardinals bottled up the Florida rushing offense that had led the Gators to an 11...
What a performance that was from Florida at the Sugar Bowl. ESPN reported the school only sold 7,000 tickets to the game against Louisville, making this game a dud for a school that thought it should be playing for the BCS championship.
