How sweet it is!

How sweet it is for 21 Louisville and Coach Charlie Strong, sweet as sugar, with a huge upset of 3 Florida 33 – 23 in last night’s Sugar Bowl.  It was a tale of two quarterback performances as well.  Bridgewater was superb for Louisville while Driskel struggled for the Gators.  Jeff Driskel had only thrown three interceptions all year and he threw two last night and also fumbled.  Florida’s defense let them down as well, although some of that can certainly be attributed to Louisville and their game plan.  It had to feel very special for Charlie Strong who was the defensive coordinator at the University of Florida before taking over as head coach at Louisville.  He also had an opportunity to return to the SEC as head coach at the University of Tennessee but turned it down to stay at Louisville.

Next up, tonight the Fiesta Bowl from the desert.  4 Oregon vs. 5 Kansas State  (Great match up, have been looking forward to this game!)
