Football Cards come back against Southern Miss


WEDNESDAY @ CARDINAL COUPLE
.
Louisville comes from behind to beat Southern Miss 31-28
.
With the lack of UofL women's sports to report this Wednesday, we'll use today's column to congratulate the University of Louisville's exciting come from behind win over Southern Mississippi 31-28 in the Beef O' Brady bowl Tuesday night in St. Petersburg, Florida.
.
It didn't come easy for Charlie Strong's Cardinal team. The Cards fell behind early 14-0 to the Golden Eagles and a sense of anxiety, despair and frustration started circulating throughout the Cardinal crowd in attendance. Louisville wasn't ready to get on the buses, though...and roared back to tie the contest at 21-21 by half-time. The crowd, overwhelmingly dressed in Cardinal colors buzzed during the intermission about the rally and became optimistic about 'the Ville's' chances in the final 30 minutes.
.
Although Southern Miss drew first blood in the final half, the Cards tied the game with an electrifying 95 yard kickoff return by freshman Jeremy Wright on the very next play to even it up at 28-28. The Cards went ahead to stay when Chris Philpott kicked a 36 yard field goal midway thru the 4th. quarter.
.
Kudos to Strong and his staff for finishing 7-6 on the season and restoring hope and excitement to Cardinal Football. Finish Strong, indeed.

A hardy group of Parrish House personnel finished 2nd in the Beef O' Brady's fan challenge during pre-game tailgating activities and received a 3-foot trophy for their efforts. It will be on display during the 2011 football season and congratulations to Al, Mark, Tilly, Bonnie, Tom and the crew for wowing the judges and bringing home the silver. (They even let CARDINAL COUPLE co-owner Paul participate) and the gang was featured on WHAS and WAVE TV with their spirit and enthusiasm.
.
Next year...gold for this group. (Bribing judges goes a long way.) It was a whirlwind of four days down here in Florida and an outstanding time.

  1. Hello Cardinal Couple, My brother and I met your husband at the Beef O Brady Bowl and was invited in to tailgate with their group. They put Fun in tailgaiting and it was GREAT to see them win the tailgating trophy. What a WONDERFUL trip and getting to see the true excitment of Coach Charlie Strong after the win, HE came to the sidlines and jumped up on a platform to thank the UL fans! Fun Season, GO CARDS 2011.....
