If Louisville's offense is going to make themselves feel better it will have to be this week. The Cards will be hosting the Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles on Saturday at Papa Johns Stadium at 3:30 for the first time since 1961. A game the Cards won, and even though it's 48 years later, the outcome should be the same. Tennessee Tech , who play in the Ohio Valley Conference, are coming off a 28-12 win over Gardner Webb (something Kentucky basketball couldn't do). They will be led by three year starter Lee Sweeney at quarterback and versatile halfback Henry Sailes (26 yards on the ground with 10 catches for 78 yards last week). Tech is coming off a 4-7 season last year but started out 4-1 as well as losing 35-3 at Auburn last year. The Golden Eagles are coached by Watson Brown (younger brother of Mack Brown), Brown formally was Head Coach at UAB for 12 seasons including paving the path for them from DII to DI before returning to his hometown of Cookeville, Tennessee to take over Tech. Head Coach Brown will be on both the "John Renshaw Show" and "Sport Night" (6:41pm) with Jody Demling, Matt Jones and myself tomorrow on 93.9 FM The Ticket.
You should think the Cardinal offense will look better this week but I hope everyone doesn't start to think everything is fixed because of good numbers against a bad team. Even against a DII team I am nervous and I have every reason to be after the way we played against the Cats. I am not giving my prediction yet but I will soon...I promise.
