The Louisville Cardinals, fresh off of their Sugar Bowl victory over Florida, are entering the 2013 season with high expectations. They have a potential Heisman candidate at quarterback in Teddy Bridgewater and a fiery head coach in Charlie Strong. They are dubbed by many to be among the top 10 teams in the nation.So, to pop the top on what should be a fantastic season, the Cardinals are planning to entice fans to come to Papa Johns Cardinal Stadium by selling $1 beers during its annual Spring Game on April 13.An estimated crowd of 15,000 was on hand for last season's rain-soaked affair. Good weather and plenty of booze should jack that number up significantly this time around.Via The Big Lead
