AUDIO/VIDEO: Spend 30 Minutes With Bobby Petrino

PetrinoACC2014KickoffFitted

The cameras that have captured so many great Cardinal Moments over the last 3 seasons didn’t survive the ACC Kickoff. They are either in someone’s house, trunk, a pawn shop, or lost in the nooks & crannies of the Grandover Resort. So the 2nd Day of the ACC Kickoff was pretty limited…..I nearly resorted to filming media opportunities with the trusty iPad, but the Mark Ennis ridicule may have never ended. As such, we had to make due.

Hopefully the cameras will show up….but for now this is what we have.

Special Thanks to Mark Ennis for the Petrino Audio…….in addition to the cameras going missing the audio capture device also took a dive during our session.

One Glaring Takeaway from ACC Media Days: Confident Coach = Confident Players

DeVante Parker & Lorenzo Mauldin at 2014 ACC Kickoff

It is often said that a Coach reflects its players. A defensive minded coach will instill a defensive focused team – likewise an offensive coach would do the same. A confident coach directly effects his players as well, in that generally they adopt a ‘I don’t think you can stop us’ attitude.

That appears to be what has happened to the Louisville Football Team under Bobby Petrino, at least that’s what was reflected in Lorenzo Mauldin and Devante Parker – the two players brought to ACC Media Day.

Bobby Petrino didn’t shy away from talking about Championships, even with it being the first Cardinals experience in the ACC.

“We expect to compete for Championships,” The Head Coach noted. “That’s what we want to get done.”

He continued.

“Our expectations are going to be hi...
