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 shouts of “Charlie, Charlie, Charlie” and “Teddy, Teddy, Teddy.”  The crowd standing mesmerized, not wanting to leave the scene, sending text messages to everyone on their cell phone contact lists, whether they happen to be UofL fans or not. Among them was Louie Kern, a long-time Louisville fan, who was wearing the same No. 32 jersey at the Sugar Bowl that he had worn at the Orange Bowl in 2007, which had been the best win until now. “We expect to win, and we’re going home without one,” he said, before boarding the bus at the hotel for the stadium. So many believers in the UofL camp, so many doubters on the perimeter. One of them a University of Kentucky fan who told the observer two weeks ago UofL didn’t have a prayer. Easy for him to say when UK hasn’t beaten Florida in 30-plus years. Teddy Bridgewater would be praised over and over again going into the game, but not nearly as much he will in the coming weeks and months. More To Come
