Louisville Football: High Octane Offense In 2016?

We all have been waiting for Bobby to come back to Louisville so that we can see the 50’s and 60’s on the scoreboard. Even here he said what he would do to the scoreboards the day he talked to the fans the week he got re-hired. At every other stop year 3 is when things come together so it is not crazy to expect the same thing here…again. Coach Petrino had a ton of issues last year with injuries as well. 3 starting QB’s & an OLine that was pretty much a patchwork job. An O-Line however by the time we get to Orlando against Alabama that could be very, very good. Andrea Adelson had an opinion this morning on this topic as well. She talked about the only times a Bobby offense had averaged fewer than 30 ppg.

Only twice have his teams averaged fewer than 30 points per game – Arkansas in 2008 and last season, when the Cards averaged 28.7 points to rank No. 65 in the nation. Between 2014 and 2015, Louisville averaged 29.95 points and 405.4 yards – both below Petrino’s offensive averages.

I have no doubt we will get those 50 point games back. With the improvement of the line and experience that the QB’s, RB’s, TE’s and WR have attained this Spring, I am thinking a high-octane offense is in the Cards for 2016.

Go Cards!
