All this week, we have been bringing you exclusive write-ups from former UofL football players about the rivalry with UK. We have asked them just their general thoughts about the rivalry, and some mention their best and worst memories. We hope you enjoy these! Go Cards!
Today in our series, we bring you thoughts from former UofL QB Dave Ragone!
I have had the countdown to 3:30 pm on September 2nd in my phone for months now. There is excitement on so many levels. UofL football is starting, we play UK first, and I am finally back in Louisville full-time after being in Auburn for the last 4 years (which when it comes to football season, I can’t complain about being down there!).
I bought season tickets in the upper level when they built the expansion for the 2010 season. I was still in Auburn for another couple of years, and I only made it to about 4 games in the past 2 years, but I knew I was purchasing them for when I got back because we would be back to being good again and I didn’t want to be on a wait list. That time has come, and it worked out perfectly.
Now, about this game…
Since our Countdown to Kickoff picture of Dave Ragone today got so much good feedback on Twitter and Facebook, we had to post this video!
Florida State came into Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium as the 4th ranked team in the country, and at the time was the highest ranked team that UofL had EVER beaten!
