The player in your avatar played for a University that wasn't a major player until 1979 when it hired a pipe smoking rough neck coach that promised a NC in 5 years. It has been done before, can and will be done again. In today's age it just takes more money than it used to. Louisville has plenty of that.
Well, there you go. The meeting today with players was about Sugar Bowl stuff. He did not tell them anything about his decision.
He has called another meeting with players at 7:30 tomorrow morning but SID Kenny Klein says that here is no news conference scheduled at 8 AM or anytime tomorrow. That sounds like he's likely gone. I guess he was "cut like that". But oh well, we've still got Teddy Bridgewater and whomever the new coach is next year is getting a very, very good football team. I'm guessing Tom Jurich will look at Vance Bedford and Shawn Watson first, but hopefully he gives Mario Cristobal a call as well.
Knoxville sports talk radio host has said that 2 separate UT sources have told him that Strong has informed UT that he is staying in Louisville.
Well, who knows now. I guess we'll find out for certain tomorrow.
Butch Jones to Colorado
Also Pete Thamel of SI is reporting it's official that Charlie Strong has turned down UT and will sign an extension with Louisville that will place him in the upper echelon of ACC coaches. To add to that former U of L runningback Vic Anderson just tweeted that he spoke to Strong himself and that he is staying at U of L.
So far tonight the U of L players have been messing around with fans on the Twitter all night. During tonight's meeting Strong told them that he make a decision that is "in the best interest of the team". I'm just guessing that since they have been messing with people and were generally in a good mood when the left the meeting (per local media) that they were more or less told that Strong was sticking around and to keep it confidential. Now we can move on and concentrate on a tough defensive team in UF in the Sugar Bowl.
Add 4 star QB commit Kyle Bolin to the list of players that have been told that Strong is staying.
Sonny Dykes to Cal. Didn't help LA Tech that they turned down their bowl invite pissing him and the players off
