As many of you know by now, a decision has been made by A.D. Tom Jurich in regards to the situation regarding Recruiter and D-Line Coach Clint Hurtt. That decision was to retain his services. I for one am happy that we get to keep this man on staff at Louisville. The things he does for these young kids on and off the field are amazing. Each of the players I talked to have mentioned he is like a father to them. I do understand that some of you may not agree with me however I am entitled to my opinion. I firmly believe if there was even one thing that the AD seen that made him think that Mr Hurtt was bad for business here that he would have terminated him today. If you trust in Tom Jurich to do the right thing by now then I don’t know that you ever will. He has done too much to build up our sports program to have anything tear it down. Here is the official statement released around 1:55 pm to the media:

Purdue Commit DT Kyle Shortridge (FL) will make an official visit to Louisville next weekend. Shortridge recently took an official to Nebraska back on September 1st and most believe he will end up in Lincoln or Louisville. The 6’2 270 lb (Did I mention he runs a 4.8 40) Shortridge is rated a 3 Star DT by most sites but is one Strong and company have had their eye on for awhile and would add some much needed size to Louisvilles DL. And yes CardNation Kyle is on twitter @ShortDog99 so give him a shout and let him know we want him on the train.
I attended Fan Day at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium on Sunday afternoon, and that is what I went for, to be a fan. I acted like a kid again and got autographs, only these days it is different because the whole team is younger than me! Still cool though of course, and I hope that never gets old for me. I had to get items autographed for the tailgate trailer that my friends and I have been working on. You will see pics of that soon I am sure!
Charlie Strong’s 2013 recruiting class is shaping up to be one of the more talented we have ever had at the University of Louisville. One position that the Cardinals are not looking to load up on in this class is receiver. With that being said, it looks like Charlie Strong is looking to land 2 WR’s in the class of 2013. One of these scholarships is obviously being saved for the #3 WR in the country and Louisville (Trinity) native James Quick, but who will be the first to commit and take the other?
