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

Predicted Star of the Game: Adam Froman

This is probably going to be disgusting so a fleet-footed, moderately throwing-impaired quarterback could easily be the star.

NOTABLE

--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.

Quotable

--"We're doing some good things but we're not doing enough good things. Our guys are frustrated right now."--Steve Kragthorpe

--"We've got to get back on track. Everybody is aware of our game against UAB (a 30-17 loss) and how poorly we played as a football team. We have to get back to playing the game the way we're supposed to play it." --USM coach Larry Fedora

--"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

--"You play this game to win."--Steve Kragthorpe

--"Nobody likes losing." --Mario Benavides

CC Prediction: Louisville 20, Southern Miss 17 (OT)
