Charlie Strong is not a fan of the video game world

It was apparent to anyone who watched the Louisville football team fall to Pitt 21-14 on Senior Day that the same focus and intensity that the Cards had ridden to a three-game winning streak was not there.

It's not especially surprising to see a young team struggle with success, but head coach Charlie Strong said on Monday that there may have been another contributing factor to his team's poor preparation: the release of the video game "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3" (or, as Strong calls it, "Call to Duty").

"It's young people," Strong said. "That's what we're dealing with. We're dealing with young guys who--all of the sudden there's something new and they want to try it, and it just engulfs them."

I tried to play Halo a couple of times in college and was awful. That is my personal contribution to this post.
