Lots of University of Louisville fans have watched Brian Kelly this season a time or two on ESPN and, wow, is this guy bringing fun to Cincinnati football or what?
U of L fans can hardly wait until we get back on top and start having fun like that again. And don’t think for a minute that Tom Jurich isn’t anxious to be having that kind of fun again. You can bet your season tickets he would.
But unfortunately, TJ recently released a statement that got some fans’ Fruit-of-the-Looms all twisted up in a granny knot. They somehow mistakenly assumed that Jurich was going to let Steve Kragthorpe screw around with our precious program for another year or two until he fumbled his way into 6-6 or 7-5 and a shot at the Bob Vance Refrigeration Bowl in Scranton.
I promise you, there will be no more struggling, scowling, no more press conferences full of false humility and long streams overly technical football minute details devised to prove that SK is a football wizard.
One more thing. About this â€œpedigreeâ€ that I’m so sick of hearing about I could develop a serious rash. The real deal is: SK and his father together, a total of 17 years of head coaching, 13 losing seasons and a combined record of 83-108-2. No fun there.
