LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Louisville coach Steve Kragthorpe held a news conference today to knock down speculation about him leaving
the Cardinals for SMU.
Kragthorpe is in the first year of a five-year deal with the
Cardinals. Louisville is currently 5-6 heading into next Thursday's
season-finale against Rutgers.
Kragthorpe came to Louisville from Tulsa and inherited a team
that went 12-1 and won the Orange Bowl last year. But the Cardinals
have struggled, tumbling out of the preseason polls with a shaky
defense and upset losses at home to Syracuse and Utah.
