    I guess all the $EC apologist want to pretend that beatdown of the Gators by lowly Louisville didn't happen last night.

    I would say the future of Louisville football, is pretty bright right now. Take the dominating performance last night and put the team in perspective. Out of 22 starters, 19 will return next year, 16 are sophomores (including Teddy Heisman). Also take into account that the leading rusher from last season (Dominique Brown) and the leading receiver from last season (Michaelee Harris) both missed the entire season due to injuries.

    I will hand it to them. I never dreamed they stood a chance against Florida. Not only did they stand a chance, they pummeled the Gators. It was no where near as close as the final score made it look. I admit, I don't look forward to UK playing them next year. I still say Clowney will get the Heisman next year though.

    Louisville played a good game but the feeling I got from watching the game was Florida had an awful game and if they played again tonight it would have a different outcome. I don't have a dog in the fight, just my observation.

    L'ville looked real good. I couldn't help but think Florida wasn't up for the game, they looked like they didn't care to me. Either way, good for the Cards.

    Louisville will make a run at the title game next year. Notice I said title game and not title. They don't play any formidable opponents during the regular season and they should start the season in the top 5.

    I will have to hand it to them, they played a heck of a game. I expected there to be a beat down but I figure it was going to be "L" who got the worst of it. The experts saw it the same way going into it. They reported this morning that it was the biggest upset in BCS bowl history. They played a good game but they need to tighten up those chin straps, lol.

    I was suprised there wasn't a thread on here myself this morning. You gotta hand it to the Cards, they did it and did so decisively. Wouldn't be at all suprised to seem them in the top 5 next year. It feels funny rooting for them but they are from KY and I'm glad they won.

    You got that right. I hate seeing those helmets come off!

    I believe the cards could have hung with any team out there last night.

    UL should be top 10 if not top 5 next year. They "should" go undefeated with the schedule they have. But due to their weak schedule, another Sugar Bowl or Orange Bowl will be the best chance they have. Staying healthy will be their biggest struggle next year IMO.

    But I will admit, I doubted them the whole time. They surprised me along with many others. I admire Coach Strong and what he's doing Louisville. Teddy is a great player to add to that. Should be interesting next year.

    Regardless the outcome, I still bleed blue. Go Cats!

    As a UK fan I have to admit, Strong is a hell of of coach, and Bridgewater can play! He picked apart that Florida defense!

    What championship was won? I dont think theres a Sugar Bowl for basketball.

    Oh, and hope (and change) is one thing, delivering, as we have all found out, is something else.

    I blame Joker. First game he is on the sideline for Florida and the entire team starts playing like KY
