    Owsley can’t even look Strong in the eye. Whats up with that?

      Well, this is a still picture. If it were a movie, you see a lot of eye contact in the frames before and after this still shot. At the moment, Tom is telling Charlie Strong about how great a supporter Owsley Brown is of U of L athletics. What you see is Owsley being humble in this shot. You can thank Owsley for making this hire possible.

    Congratulations, Cards — we Gators are sorry to see Charlie Strong leave, but our loss is your gain. You’re getting a great coach and recruiter. Good luck!

    I am very enthused about this hire. Let’s hope that Coach Strong is able to get the Cards back on the winning path. I believe that he will have great success at the ‘Ville. By the way, does his wife go by “Vicky?” I see that in the caption, but I’ve previously only heard her referred to as “Victoria.” Just wondering.
