Anyone recall Bobby Petrino being as enthusiastic as he is now during his first go-round as head football coach at the University of Louisville?

Petrino obviously liked what he saw during the opening day of spring practice, praising the running backs, the wide receivers, even the offensive line. He called quarterback Will Gardner a natural leader, a player who has the respect of this teammates.

The offensive genius admits he wasn’t paying much attention to the defensive side during practice but, rest assured, Petrino will know all about the defense after a late-night video session.

One happy person, thrilled to be back coaching football at UofL.
