L’ville Using Negative Story as Motivation
In early June, Brad Edwards penned an ESPN Insider story listing Louisville as one of five “teams that could slide in 2013” after the Cardinals went 11-2 and won the Sugar Bowl last season.
Rather than shrugging off the less-than-favorable prediction, the Cardinals are using it as motivation. They blew up the story and hung it from one of the walls of their weight room.
It’s not quite as cool as Alabama playing their 2012 loss to Texas A&M on a loop in their new weight room, but it is a praiseworthy motivational tactic nonetheless.
