Notable and Quotable:
--Louisville is 28-17-1 all-time against the OVC.
--The Cards are 0-3 all-time when playing on Sept. 6.
--"We've got to be able to run the football better, no question about that. It's very simple. We've got to put ourselves in down and distance situations where we can dictate the tempo and flow of the game and also be able to open up our playbook a little bit. You get a little constricted when you can't do that." --Steve Kragthorpe
--"Obviously there is going to be a lot of fingers pointed from outside the team in terms of who did this and who could have done this better, and we understand that. I myself, probably deserve that, but we have to just to stay together as a team and be stronger. We have to go out and get ready for Tennessee Tech." --Hunter Cantwell
--"There were a lot of different reasons (why) I left Louisville. It just was not a good fit for me in a lot of ways." --Lee Sweeney
--"I really want Lee to understand that it's Tennessee Tech playing Louisville and not Lee Sweeney playing Louisville. I just want him to enjoy the moment and go back to the place where he got started and not put pressure on himself. This should be something special for him." --Watson Brown
