For one night it didn't matter.
The disappointment, the rumors, the dissent, none of it existed.
We saw the future as Bilal Powell completely took the game over in the second half. We saw the defense finally get the big stop when it needed to the most. We saw the dream team of Brian Brohm and Harry Douglas hook-up one more time on the biggest play of the game's biggest drive. And then we saw college football's most accomplished kicker seal the deal by drilling the first game-winner of his collegiate career in his final game as a Louisville Cardinal.
And did I mention that all this came at the expense of a team that broke the collective heart of the city of Louisville by handing the Cards their only loss in all of 2006?
At least we had tonight.
I just don't want to go to sleep.
