49 Days

Occasionally on the days where the Cards don’t currently have a player on the roster wearing that days number I’ll try and drop an interesting fact or noteworthy stat relating to that said number. **I use the terms interesting and noteworthy very loosely**

One of the most beloved coaches in Louisville football history, Howard Schnellenberger finished his time at UofL with a 49.1% winning percentage over the course of 10 seasons, including a 10-1-1 season (1990) and two bowl victories (Fiesta, Liberty).

Charlie Strong still holds the all-time winning percentage record at 71.2% during his four seasons at the university, followed closely by Lee Corso (70.2%), and Bobby Petrino (68.8%).
