Great first-person story by Brian Brohm over at Card Chronicle on his recruitment during his junior and senior years at Trinity High School. Sounds like Brian had his mind set on the University of Louisville from day one.
The story everyone is waiting to see, however, is one in which Brian reveals his thoughts of how the hiring of Steve Kragthorpe affected his football career. Brohm went from being a high draft choice after his junior year to the 56th pick in the NFL draft the following season, eventually winding up on the Green Bay practice squad.
Doubtful Brian will ever address it publicly but we would pay to read that one.
Although he will be remembered as one of the best UofL quarterbacks ever, Brohm’s tenure was also marred by injuries along the way, including an ACL tear in his sophomore season, a thumb injury during his junior year and suspected shoulder problems during his senior season.
He seemed to have lost much of his effectiveness his last year for whatever reasons.
Back to Kragthorpe. Sorry, but many Louisville fans are still wondering how a high profile program like LSU would hire the gentleman. Tulsa, where Kragthorpe coached before coming to UofL, refused to even grant him an interview for its recent job opening.
Numerous UofL fans are consoling/castigating LSU partisans over on a Tiger message board. The bitterness lingers.

The official UofL sports web site is reporting that all 11,000 tickets for the Louisville-Cincinnati women’s basketball game at 2 p.m. Saturday have been sold. Must be expensive to pull back those upper tier black curtains for the upper regions of the KFC Yum! Center. There are 22,000 seats available, right? Maybe the printing presses couldn’t keep up with the demand. Curious situation.
