The University of Louisville Athletic Association board will meet on a personnel matter Wednesday at 3:30 p.m. Charlie Strong will be at the top of the agenda, in fact, the only agenda item, to be sworn in as the new U of L football coach. Get ready, Louisville.

    A hungry coach, hungry fan base, a straight line from Florida to Louisville for hungry recruits. Wow, baby, here we go again!

    Welcome Coach Strong.

    I am already a season ticket holder. But this evening I will be putting my name on the waiting list for additional tickets.

    Is this Groundhogs day? Seems I remember hearing all this a mere 3 years ago. Guy has ZERO experience at running a program. If I could give Strong some advice it would be to rent and not buy.

      Kragthorpe had experience running a program — look how much good that did….

    I hope the Cardinal fan base will exercise some paitence and time to allow him to start the rebuild. It’s not going to happen overnight, a lot of work to be done and evaluation and analysis of what he has left, what he needs to come in and who he’d going to hire to accomplish the work.

    Welcome, Charlie.

    Strong spent the last several years working for the best. He knows what right looks like, and he’ll bring it here. It’s his time, he deserves it, and he won’t choke.
