Bobby-PetrinoA grateful Bobby Petrino expressed his appreciation to University of Louisville fans for their unprecedented support during the first year of his second term as the UofL football coach — a level of support that set two important all-time marks.

A total of 55,428 fans set the single game record against the University of Miami in the opening game, and average attendance was 52,971 for six home games.

The open letter, which first appeared in the Courier-Journal, also acknowledges the 15,000 fans who traveled to South Bend for UofL’s first-ever appearance against Notre Dame.
