Makes the Big East 3-1 in bowl season with 10+ pt wins over ACC, Big 12, and SEC schools, with the lone loss coming in overtime. If Pitt can take down another SEC team in Ole Miss, it'd be tough to pick many conferences with a more impressive bowl season.

Makes you wonder what could have been if WVU, Pitt, and Cuse stayed and the league decided to stick together.  I think we had the teams - just needed the time to flourish.

Those days are over.

Ville played really well. Bridgewater...............wish he was a junior this year. He makes all of the throws and
is very accurate. Flordia was headhunting and that is not cool at all.

Great to see Louisville hand it to Florida and, by extension, ESPN.  Fun game.....

I have no problem admitting when I'm wrong and after last night I'd have to say that I was wrong in calling Charlie Strong a B+ coach.  He and his Cardinals did a great job.  Inspired play.

Puts more pressure on Lyle cause the UT fans are gonna be sayin,' "Look what we shoulda had."  Good luck Lyle!  tongue

And I have a feeling a few of them are the same individual based on the similarity of the posts.

Great vic UL! Could have been much worse too. Muschamp looked like a chump- several times.

Great win for UL and the Big East. Last year WV put a beat down on Clemson in the Orange Bowl. Syracuse seems to have turned the corner. Too bad the Big East couldn't hold things together.

Strong coached circles around Muschamp, what's amazing is Lyle outcoached Charlie 2 and a half straight years, save for the last quarter vs them...ugh

I think it should be mentioned that the loyalty Strong is showing towards Louisville. Here Strong had several interviews to become a head coach and schools went in a different direction. It is nice that Strong remembers that Louisville did give him the opportunity when "greener" pastures were offered. Wish we could have had coaches do that, not to mention any names...

I don't think Strong stays at UL long term.  Arkansas, Tennessee, Colorado, Purdue, and other schools that were looking for coaches were not in a good position going forward.  Remeber that BK went to Washington and Tennessee for interviews was the rumored favorite and came back... for one season.

He didn't show loyalty. He talked and talked with UT and probably others. He just didn't get everything he wanted. That's the only reason he stayed at UL, that and Jurich will sell the farm to keep him. Make no mistake, when the deal becomes sweet enough, Charlie will leave.

Muschamp is the equivalent of Butch Jones, B or B+ at best, Bridgewater played out of his mind, one pass in particular stuck out where he rifled it right in between a LB and a safety for a first down, he is going to be scary next year if he stays healthy.

Their defense surprised Florida, Florida had to use all sorts of gimmicks just to try to stay close.

The UF kickoff return, well you knew they were gonna have a big special teams play at some point, just because of their athletic ability. We saw it in our game too, except the shoe was on the other foot, coaching >>>> athletic talent.

The Ville should have won by even more. Congrats to them for their victory.

Cmon no need to talk bad about the man when he decided to turn down bigger offers and stay, its actually very refreshing to know that at least one coach believes in a thing called loyalty! I have to admit that I thought he was leaving as well but he proved us all wrong and you never know Coach Strong may decide to be at UL longterm and there is nothing wrong with that. We are so used to coaches moving the first chance they get that we are shocked when they stay.

I agree with Bob, there is no reason to beat on him.  I have no doubt that Strong loves UL and wants to be there for a long time.  Pure speculation, but I think Florida and Alabama are the only other college jobs he would covet.

But don't be fooled, this is major college football and money matters to all coaches, with few to no exceptions.  The money has to be at least close.  Let's face it, it is a lot easier to be loyal at $3M per year.  I think he's gone if they were "only" paying $2M.  While I honestly do commend him for staying in such a tough situation, even the coach at child rape U in Pennsylvania only stayed after his salary was doubled.

Just looking around at the current hires and salaries, I'd say "loyalty" has a price cap of about $200K-$500K.  After that there is no such thing.

While money is a part of it, I dont think its the main reason coaches leave. Its the challenge to come into another program and put your stamp on it and win that is the lure. These guys already have enough money but they also have egos as well and some coaches want the next best thing and other coaches believe in job security. All these guys are basically set for a long time with the money they make and if you are a millionaire you are a millionaire regardless of 1.8 to 2.3 to 3.2, its all more money then I will ever see.
