No disgrace to lose to Utah. One of the best teams on the schedule.
The raucus crowd at Utah, however, a startling reminder of what was like not so long ago at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium. Fans used to winning, insanely enthusiastic fans, inspired by talented players expecting to win, playing with wreckless abandon.
The visiting team at Utah tonight, reminiscent of many Louisville football teams of old, you know, the Vince Gibson, T. W. Alley, most of the Howard Schnellenberger years, the Ron Cooper debacle. Fans and players with low expectations, playing down to them.
Just keep reminding oneself of how much one loves tailgating, the fall weather, the pretty girls, the university, the social atmosphere surrounding the events, the game of football. Nice social events.
Wins will be few and far between.
