Scoreboard! That's all I would have been saying alllllllllllllllllllll night long if I was on the field in a Louisville uniform. Scoreboard ace.
Again, I have no problem with the smack, as long as you can back it up. If not, YOU are just pissing in the wind.
Those passes could not be defensed. In the second half we seemed to have more luck disrupting their timing. The defensive front was playing with heart and getting fired up. It just wasn't enough. We did hold them to 9 points in the second half, including the series that started on our own 19.
