Louisville Vies for Catfish Trophy
Louisville - Former Big East power, University of Louisville, won the conference in 2006. In 2007, they decided to try for the other conference award, The Catfish Trophy. The prize is presented annually to the bottom-feeding Big East team, aka, the worst team.
Last year's representative, the Syracuse Orange, came into Louisville last Saturday attempting to hold on to it's crown. Head Coach Robinson commented. "We did everything we could - pulled out all the stops against the Cardinals but it wasn't enough. They came up with a defense we've never seen before. We simply couldn't not score."
Newcomer UL coach Kragthorpe's squad are currently down 20 points at home to Mountain West slap school, Utah. Heading into the half, Coach provided Pantherrants with his second half strategy. "After watching Pitt's performance last week, we knew we'd have to up the ante if we're going to get that Catfish Trophy. I'm proud of my team's execution in the first half. So far, they've played about as bad as a team could possibly play. The defense is simply the worst ever. In fact, we're confident that even Pitt OC Matt Cavanaugh will have success. Still, it's only the first half; we've got a long way to go."
Good luck, Coach K - somewhere, Ron Dickerson is pulling for you.
