Charlie Strong Wants 20,000 At Saturday's Spring Game

I would not recommend disappointing the man.


Here are the details from U of L.

The 2012 University of Louisville Wendy's Wonderful Kids Red-White Spring Game will be held on Saturday, April 14 at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium. Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m.

Head coach Charlie Strong, who begins his third season, will pit the offense versus the defense in a regular-game situation. The first half will be timed as a regular game, while second-half timing rules will depend on depth.

Sophomore quarterback Teddy Bridgewater will lead the first unit and score points for the Red Team, while senior quarterback Will Stein will be the White Team's quarterback. The Cardinals, who begin their final week of spring practice, have had a productive spring, as Louisville returns at least 18 total starters from last season's BIG EAST championship team.

"We have had a good spring," said Strong. "It's been very competitive and the players have given great effort. I hope we can have a huge crowd on Saturday and really show off our team to our great fans."

Admission is free and open to the public. The gates will open at noon and the parking lots will be open for tailgating at 8 a.m.

Free admission? 8 a.m. tailgating? Teddy? Titus? Yes, yes, yes and yes.
