Louisville and USF sign 2 for 1 agreement.It will be nice to be back in PJCS. One of my favorite venues.
I have to find that one guy that comes to the USF/Louisville game wearing UK gear, again. The Card fans lose all focus when that happens.

Wisconsin and BYU in Tampa
Georgia Tech in Atlanta
I'm not holding my breath, though. That could fall through at any time.

Remember, we have the Yuengling Brewery here. Plenty of time to plan and tank up.

Jan 18, 18, 08:38 PM #7That 2008 game was a great ball game. USF came in 6-1 and ranked #14. UofL , 5-2, was in the 2nd year of the Steve Gragthorpe era. Matt Grothe was 30-40 for 344 yards and 2 touchdowns, but he threw 2 interceptions, the last one led to UofL running out the clock. The USF running game, was held to just 8 yards by the UofL defense.
About halfway through the 4th quarter, with USF up 20-17, Hunter Cantwell threw a TD pass to put Louisville up 24-20.
After Grothe threw his second pick and with less than 2 minutes to play, UofL missed a field goal attempt, but USF was called for defensive holding, it's 14th penalty of the game. I still remember the scene on the field. I thought Jim Leavitt was going to kill somebody in stripes. He had to be restained by his players. With USF out of time outs the Cards ran out the clock.

What are the chances that both coaches - Strong and Petrino - will still be coaching for the first game in 2022? I think a least one if not both will be gone.

Jan 19, 18, 09:21 AM #11The practical side of me says “Why on Earth would we do this? It’s an AAC team that is always good but that we’ll get no reward for beating and endless criticism for losing.”
The football fan side of me says “That’s a great opponent that will give any UofL team valuable experience and I ALWAYS want to play former Big East and C-USA opponents.”
This should be fun.
