It'd be a lot easier for me to get up for this game if it hadn't been preceeded by a bye week and a game at Memphis. The borderline no-win non-con game stuff was played out after Tennessee Tech. I need some Big East contests in my life, ASAP.

Take the week off, Stoudt. Go somewhere nice with the wife.

Rock Keys Playing Alert Level: Tropical Rain Forest (Pretty sure he's redshirting, give it up)

Your world, big man.

Notable and Quotable

--Louisville has yet to win back-to-back games against FBS opponents under head coach Steve Kragthorpe. It's a trend that could be put to bed with a victory this afternoon.

--MTSU and U of L have one common opponent: Kentucky. The Cards wee blasted by the Cats 27-2, while the blue Raiders came one-yard short of pulling the upset before falling 20-14.

--Louisville is 2-5 all-time on Oct. 15.

--Trent Guy is averaging 24.2 yards every time he touches the football.

--MTSU is 4-27 all-time against BCS schools.

--"These guys have gone to Oklahoma and LSU and they've been to Louisville before so we are going to the same venue and playing the same team. They should be confident in that aspect. Our record is not impressive right now but we are getting better and doing some good things. It doesn't show in the win-loss column but we are getting better. They should be confident." --MTSU head coach Rick Stockstill

--"We want to be able to spread the ball around." --Steve Kragthorpe

--"I think emotionally we've been ready to go - but maybe a little too overhyped. At the start of the game we have to settle down and get into a rhythm." --Steve Kragthorpe
