Louisville’s Mauldin over loss quickly, not concerned, wants to move on

Bobby Petrino doesn’t have to look far for leadership on defense. Although Lorenzo Mauldin claims he’s not a verbal leader but he’s obviously the one that gets his teammates fired up — whether it be in the pre-game huddles where he’s yelling and dancing around or during games when he’s aggressively attacking the quarterback.

Petrino Is Confident In His Team’s Ability To Rush The Passer

Photo: Andy Lyons – Getty I can only speak for myself, but I’m not too concerned about Louisville’s offense in the season opener against Miami on Sept. 1.

When it comes to the defensive...
