Teddy Bridgewater spoke to the media today for this first time since returning to practice. Listen to what he has to say below!
On his weekly radio show, Coach Bobby Petrino opened with kind words about former Athletic Director Tom Jurich.
“I’d just like to take a minute here, after what happened today, to thank Tom Jurich for everything that he did for me and my family and this university,” Petrino said. “When you drive around campus and you look around and you see all the amazing facilities that we have, that was Tom’s vision and hard work and dedication to be able to get that done.
“One thing I think everyone really needs to understand is, Tom’s biggest thing was that he wanted to do everything he possibly could do for a student-athlete. The student-athlete comes first, and that we need to give him every opportunity to get the best education and the best experience being a student-athlete here at the university. I just thought I needed to take a minute and thank him for everything he’s done.”
In some much needed good news, the Minnesota Vikings announced today that Teddy has been clear to start practicing! We, here at CSZ, look forward to watching his comeback!

The fate of Tom Jurich as Louisville’s AD is said to be decided at the Board of Trustee’s meeting on October 18th.
In some much needed good news for Cardnation, the Vikings are hoping for Teddy to be back practicing next week! He will be evaluated Monday to determine if he can move forward. We here at CSZ, continue to wish Teddy all of the best during his recovery.
