Sugar Bowl Win Has Media Buzzing About Strong's Florida Recruiting

Rn_g_charliestrong_ms_400_medium

ESPN's Michael DiRocco has authored a piece about recruiting Florida players, and which school does he start off talking about? Florida? Florida State? Miami? No, no and no. It's LOUISVILLE and HCCMFS!


Following the 2009 season, Charlie Strong took over a Louisville program that hadn't had a winning season in three years.

Flash forward to this season when the Cardinals went 11-2 and won just their second BCS bowl in school history by beating Florida in the Allstate Sugar Bowl. It's a pretty remarkable turnaround, and it started when Strong made the decision to start stocking his roster with players from Florida.

"I felt like once I cleaned up Kentucky, I had to get into Florida," Strong said. "You have to have the players from Florida. If you don't have enough players from within your state, you have to go somewhere else. In that state, there's enough players that you can get football players."
