Found December 28, 2011 on Louisville Card Game:
Great being in another bowl but nobody happy just being there.Too many memories of better outcomes, too many reminders that the restoration of the Louisville football program is far from complete.Some of the glaring deficiencies that hindered U of L early in the season resurfaced in the Belk Bowl. The inability to run the ball, to protect the quarterback, to hold on to the ball, the disappointing interceptions.  Only four penalties called against the Cards, three of them in the third quarter, each time breathing new life into the NC State offense.The lasting image from this game will be that of Teddy Bridgewater absorbing brutal hits, taking the beating of his life, getting back up time after time.

Pitino’s Comments Make National Headlines

Am I the only one who thinks Pitino’s comments at yesterday’s press conference we completely blown out of proportion?

Belk Bowl Predictions

@TheCardConnect: I could see this game going a number of different ways. With the both teams going on over a month without playing a game, it’s hard to predict what will happen. However, the most consistent thing all season has been the Louisville defense. Even in the losses this year, the Louisville defense has always been able to give the offense a chance to win the game.
