Like most of you, my only interest is looking for any indication that the Kragclusion may be drawing near.
Honestly, skipping this game to participate in the open thread is a play everyone with tickets should seriously consider.
Game Attire: Red Louisville basketball shorts, white long-sleeve Bellarmine shirt
It's what I put on this morning, I'm not going to the game, and I really see no need to change.
Pregame Meal: Chicken wings
Kragtastic Prediction: We miss more than two field goals
This is probably going to be disgusting so a fleet-footed, moderately throwing-impaired quarterback could easily be the star.
--If Louisville loses tonight, Steve Kragthorpe will become the first Cardinal head coach to lose more than eight consecutive games to FBS opponents.
--Louisville has won three straight over Southern Miss.
--Tackle Jeff Adams will be making his season debut this evening. Adams started all 12 games a season ago.

--"Obviously, everybody’s very, very disappointed for Austin Davis. I can’t say that it’s not going to affect us, but I do feel a sense of excitement about seeing how Martevious is going to respond in this situation."--Larry Fedora
