    Coach Strong. I,m a card fan as well as a collage football & b-ball fan. This is a question that everyone I speak to agrees with.That you won,t stay at the UofL football program no more then 4 or 5 yrs. tops! We can,t understand why that the coaches won,t stay? All of the coaches that left this program (except Petrio; & thats in waiting) has not been successful. Why is the UofL footballprogram always a steppin stone for other programs? The program pays top $. Some of the best facilities bar none, and not the pressure as others. If you stay, you CAN be the next Coach Crum. A building, a field, a street, all of these things can be named after you if you stay! Who knows? I truly believe, that UofL football can become a great program if only someone as yourself would commit to it. I don,t know what your plans are with your future, but WE ALL HOPE, that it,s with us. If not, the Cardinal Nation will ALL WAYS be on yourside, as with all of our ex-coaches. You & your family are God lovein people, & faithful to your job no matter where you are, & thats why God will bless you no matter what door you go through. Our door is wide open! PTL, we love you guys. Yours truly Rick frazier & family.
