Found January 03, 2013 on Louisville Card Game:
No doubt, whatsoever. The biggest win in University of Louisville football history, this 33-23 win over fourth-ranked Florida in the BCS Sugar Bowl. Vegas odd makers losing big on U of L, not giving any credit for heart, ambition or desire. The Cardinals  don’t roll over for anyone. The higher the stakes the bigger the chip on the shoulder. Hey, this is serious business, the tougher the opposition the better. Louisville making a huge statement on behalf of the Big East and Atlantic Coast conferences with this win, and there were no “SEC, SEC, SEC” chants heard during the entire game. If there were, they were drowned out by the 20,000-plus Louisvillians in the Mercedes-Benz Super Dome, one rousing party from the coin toss until the trophy presentation, carrying over to Bourbon Street all night long, and on every single thoroughfare leading back to the Ville. Charlie Strong would award the game ball to the University of Louisville fans, designating them as most valuable players to sho...

I’m going to go out on a limb and assume that this Police Officer and Charlie Strong know each other from Strong’s time in Florida, because that was an emphatic hand slap.  If you watch closely at the end of the video, you can tell that between the handslap and the smile, this state police officer wanted Louisville to pull off the upset.Video via: Sports Pickle

Sugar Bowl: Louisville Cardinals Prove Further Why College Football Needs True Playoffs
