Strong Says UK Win A "Relief" For Seniors

University of Louisville football coach Charlie Strong says Saturday’s win over UK was a relief to his senior players who had never experienced victory over their in-state rival. The Cards defeated Kentucky 24-17 in Lexington to snap a four game losing streak to the Wildcats.Strong told reporters at his weekly press conference today that a boost in fan support  would give his team more confidence on the field.    He says he’s puzzled by U of L alumni who favor UK over their alma mater."You know I have a friend, and I tease her all the time, and I know she’s going to get embarrassed when I say this, but she coaches my daughter in volleyball. She graduated from Louisville and she supports Kentucky.    Her whole car is Kentucky.  I don’t understand that.   I’ve never heard of that.   At Florida, you would never support Florida State if you were a Gator," he said.U of L has this week off, and returns to action October 1 against Marshall.Kentucky is back on the field this weekend, hosting Florida.

Rick Howlett was midday host and the host of LPM's weekly talk show, "In Conversation." He was with LPM from 2001-2023 and held many different titles, including Morning Edition host, Assignment Editor and Interim News Director. He died in August 2023. Read a remembrance of Rick here.
