Few Louisville fans expecting to win this football game, even against a Connecticut team known for folding in the fourth quarter. Just enough glimpses of Louisville offense early on, teasing the faithful, prolonging the suspense, delaying the inevitable. Greedy UConn, just too eager to accept the many gifts.
- Bilal Powell looking more like the player from two years ago with his 87 yards except this one gives up the football, two inexplicable fumbles resulting in scoring drives for UConn.
- Give Adam Froman credit for two touchdown drives but the more protection and time he gets, the greater the odds of his throwing interceptions, costly every time, even against mediocre teams.
- Victor Anderson is either hurt or he’s not. Why wait until the second half to test the diagnosis? Making the option play look good while limping in for a touchdown.
- Darius Ashley still missing in action. That Darius Ashley, the leading running back in Ohio during his senior year. Fans will never know how bad he dinged his shoulder in the Pitt game, or whether that’s even the reason he is never seen.
- Playmaker Scott Long , the wide receiver with the sure hands, not getting much chance to use them. Shaking himself loose, getting open more often might help.
- That jump ball pass to Josh Chichester play will work some day. Give it a couple of years. A senior may have figured it out.
- Extra point attempts should be no-brainers.
- Thanks, Trent Guy, for not trying to catch the fourth quarter punt inside your 10-yard line. He has a history, you know, but no fumbles in this one. Clinging to any sign of progress.
