After Louisville thumped Florida 33-23 on Wednesday night in the Sugar Bowl, Cardinals head coach Charlie Strong thanked ESPN analyst David Pollack. Well, sort of.
"I'll tell you this, Pollack got us fired up earlier today when he said it was going to be a 15-point game in their favor and it was going to feel like a 30-point game," Strong said during his on-field interview with the network after the game, "and then he said our defense hadn't played well all year. So this is for him."
Strong believes the convincing Sugar Bowl win is a big step for his program.
"We need to take this program to a different level and we knew this was going to be a big game for us to set the table for next year," he said.
