College football team kickoff luncheons are generally pretty tame affairs. But Louisville’s added a little spice when head coach Bobby Petrino had this to say about the Cardinals’ first opponent, Alabama:
“I believe we’re gonna go beat em. And we will go beat em.”
Louisville and Alabama meet in the season opening Camping World Kickoff in Orlando, Fla., at 8 p.m. Sept. 1. Alabama is the defending national champion with Madison Southern star Damien Harris returning for his senior year at tailback for the Crimson Tide.
