    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.

    Good stuff, especially the individual shots of Strong and Jurich.

    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.

    getting back on track!
