Bobby Petrino and the Louisville Cardinals will head to up-state New York later this week for their week two match-up with the Syracuse Orange.
The Cards crushed Cuse last year 41-7 at Papa at John’s Cardinal Stadium and are now favored by more than two touchdowns (14.5). With that said, Coach Petrino isn’t exactly taking the Orange lightly. He has a lot of respect for Dino Babers in his staff.
The former Bowling Green coach is in his first season at Cuse and won his first game 44-7 over FCS opponent Colgate. One of the many things Babers brings to the table is an uptempo style of play. To say he likes to play fast is an understatement. In fact, they may too fast, according to Coach Petrino.
“We watched their spring game and Colgate,” Petrino said on Monday afternoon during his weekly press conference. “They’ve gotten better. They’re playing better. That’s one of the things they brag about is how fast they go. We’ve got to see if all that’s legal because there are a few times they’re snapping the ball, and the down markers haven’t even been moved yet. So we do need to check into that and see how that works.”
I’m not saying, I’m just saying.
