Continuing tributes to Teddy Bridgewater could seem to be bit overdone to some, what with the University of Louisville football program on the cusp of a whole new era.

Teddy has moved on, taking his considerable talents and charisma to the Minnesota Vikings, winning the hearts of his mentors and fans in the Land of a Thousand Lakes.

Will Gardner brings the future.

The focus will quickly turn to Will Gardner and what he needs to do to maintain UofL’s tradition as Quarterback U. Gardner will be laboring in the shadow of Bridgewater for a while, bringing his own approach to the game. How long it takes for him emerge as the man depends on how his team performs during its first season in the ACC.

For this reason, I had second thoughts about using the latest video, produced by Evan Westendorf. It’s so good, however, that it would be a crime not to use it.

One more video for Teddy but the future belongs to Will Gardner at UofL.
