It was exactly one-year ago today that Theodeore Bridgewater and Eli Rogers pledged their allegiance to the University of Louisville football program.
Five-star Miami Northwestern quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has verbally committed to play football for the Louisville Cardinals. He is the highest-ranked signal caller (No.2/No.3) to ever commit to U of L, a program with a rich history at the quarterback position.
Coming with Bridgewater is teammate and best friend Eli Rogers, a three-star receiver who was headed to Miami before head coach Randy Shannon was fired. In any other year (or on any other day, really), the commitment of Rogers alone would be more than enough to induce below-the-waist clothes-shedding.
There have been serious rumblings about this for almost two weeks now, but to actually hear that it's official is almost surreal. This is program-changing news regardless of how either player's career at Louisville pans out.
So far the whole thing has worked out quite well for us.
Also of note is that today is the one-year anniversary of the arrival of the mini-beef helmets, the news of tensions flaring between U of L and Southern Miss at a dance contest, and the beginning of the Titus Teague photoshops.
That was a day.
