Easily this was probably the most emotional night of Louisville Football that I can ever remember.
I left Louisville on Wednesday, November 28th, 2012 around 4:00 a.m. with my dad and InsidetheVille’s (at the time) Chris Hatfield. The night before we knew the ACC had an announcement coming, around 2:00 a.m. everyone basically knew that the Cards were to receive an invite into the Atlantic Coast Conference. It was a restless night of sleep with excitement about the conference future, excitement about the trip to New Jersey, worry about Teddy Bridgewater’s wrist & ankle, a BCS bid and a conference championship on the line. On the road.
Sharing this with my father & Chris, being there in person & having the perspective we had was priceless. I’ll never forget it. I’m so happy to have had the chance to share these videos with you, as I am with all of our presentations. But this night was truly special. Let’s revisit.
CrumsRevenge: Cards Beat Rutgers, BCS Bound
Some of his finest work. @CrumsRevenge recaps last year’s 20-17 win over Rutgers in Piscataway, NJ. The Cards won the Big East Conference (and will forever reign as the Big East Champion) and clinched the BCS Bid. It was an emotional game, Teddy Bridgewater did not go through a full warm-up, Will Stein started the game, two missed tackles led to long scores for the Scarlet Knights and the Cards trailed 14-3 at halftime.
Louisville prevailed, and @CrumsRevenge does an incredible job of telling the story and capturing the enthusiasm in post-game.
Teddy Bridgewater & Shawn Watson EMBRACE: “That Was So Awesome!”
This video was actually filmed by Chris Hatfield. It was his first experience using a camera covering football. So I’d say he has a pretty good average. I’ll have to tell the entire story one day.
Raw VIDEO Post-Game Celebration
We ran two different cameras during the post-game scene. We split up and tried to get as much of the emotion as we could. The only thing I really regret is that there isn’t any video inside the locker room. Our access didn’t permit us in those areas, but man, we had enough. What a great night.
