Make sure you're buckled up.
"It's a big game no doubt because it's a Big East game," Kragthorpe said this afternoon at his weekly media conference. "That's one of our goals, to try to get to the point where we're playing for the Big East championship."
Kragthorpe and the Cards feel the race is still wide open with USF having suffered a home loss to Pittsburgh.
The Cards lost to USF 55-17 last season in Tampa, where they remain winless in three tries. But the Bulls have not won in Louisville in two previous tries. Kragthorpe is hopeful the home crowd will make it difficult for USF as it did against Middle Tennessee State.
"I thought it was a big factor, particularly with no-huddle offense Middle Tennessee liked to run and South Florida does the same thing," Kragthorpe said. "I think it's great for our crowd and our crowd can be a huge factor this week."
My dream is that one of these days Kragthorpe will come to a press conference and act completely out of character. Maybe he uses "Mo' Money, Mo' Problems" as an intro, maybe he shows up wearing one of those Cat in the Hat hats, I don't know, I'm still ironing out the details.
People say I don't dream big enough.
