#24 Louisville Cardinals: College Football 77 in 77

u of l cheerleaders

From the Cardinal to the Cardinals, from last year’s top team in the Pac 12 to this year’s top team in the Big East, the 77 in 77 keeps rolling with #24 the Louisville Cardinals and Teddy Bridgewater, a big time playmaker at quarterback.

2011 was: mediocre. At 7-6, the Cardinals ended up with a better road record than home. They also lost something called the Belk Bowl to NC State

2012 will go smoothly if:  the signal caller runs things like a mayor. There isn’t much experience at WR for Bridgewater though. With Temple replacing West Virginia in the Big East, these guys will be the favorite in the league.

2012 will be rough if: the stop the opponents’ passing game will be a question mark this year. The secondary was last year’s weakness, but they don’t need to replace starters in that unit. The front seven is green though

BMOC: Dominique Brown, DeVante Parker, Bridgewater obviously, Preston Brown, Hakeem Smith

All Name team: Deontirez Mount

Bottom Line: stay healthy and the league is there’s.

Lindy’s- 23, Athlon-23 , Phil Steele- 24 ESPN/USA Today Coaches- 24
