Habe on the Horns

By Steve Habel

Just by pure happenstance, I found myself at home on Saturday night and clicking through the offerings on the sports channels provided by my cable company when I ran across a replay of last year’s Russell Athletic Bowl, where Louisville, coached by Charlie Strong – Texas’s new head man – whipped Miami 36-9 to finish off a 12-1 season.

The Cardinals performance mesmerized me.
