Someone Strong This Way Comes

[stextbox id=”custom”]They have extremely high regard for Charlie Strong over on Every Day Should Be Saturday:

Godspeed you black emperor: Strong did nothing but create ballsy defenses, including the one carrying Florida to the 2006 title almost singlehandedly–a defense that, last year’s unit mentioned with no disrespect, may have been his crowning achievement since the ‘08 unit had such support from the offense. (Though the one game award may have to go to the BCS Title game last year, where Florida stymied what many considered one of the best offenses to ever take the field in the modern era.)

The opportunity is long overdue, and richly deserved. Now let us hug like men, though not too tightly in your case, lest a broken rib scar the memory of our parting. If Louisville gets nothing else by hiring a tireless recruiter and brilliant defensive mind, it gets a coach capable of demonstrating the benchmark weights in all exercises for incoming recruits all by himself.

    i remember not too long ago another Florida assistant/defensive coordinator/great recruiter/second comimg/blah blah blah…oh yea and hes about to be fired from yet another job….Ron Zook. Be careful about making Mr. Strong the answer, seems the Florida offsprings need the Florida recruits and system to stay employed
