To get to know our opening opponent a bit better, I reached out to Mark Ennis, blog manager of SBNation's Louisville site Card Chronicle. He probably knows Louisville better than anybody else. And now, we will too.
SOTU: What's the feeling around the program now that Bobby Petrino is back for a 2nd stint coaching the Cards?
SOTU: Like Miami, Louisville is starting a new QB in this game. What is your take on Will Gardner?
SOTU: Devante Parker will miss this (and other) games with a foot injury. How does that change/affect the offense we'll see on Monday?
SOTU: The Defense lost 2 elite players in DE Marcus Smith and S Calvin Pryor. How is this year's team going to compensate for those losses?
SOTU: With a sizable contingent of South Floridians on your roster, what does this game mean for recruiting?
SOTU: There has been reports of conflict between coaches and players alike. Do you think that will impact the on-field performance?
SOTU: Church's, KFC, or Popeye's?
SOTU: How do you think this game will play out?
Thanks to Mark Ennis for sharing his thoughts. Be sure to follow him on twitter @markennis, and check out cardchronicle.com for all your Louisville news.
