Louisville Using Poster Of Negative ESPN Article In Weight Room For Motivation

For that last rep.

Louisville is a hot pick to reach the BCS National Championship Game this year. The Cardinals have (what appears to be) an easy schedule, a stud quarterback in Teddy Bridgewater, and a ton of returning starters from last year's Sugar Bowl winning squad. Add in the recent news that former Auburn running back Michael Dyer will be joining the team and it's obvious to see why many are pegging the Cards to earn a shot at a title.

But not everyone is so high on the Cardinals - and coach Charlie Strong and his staff are making it clear that nothing is handed out in August. Check out the poster behind Strong in the picture below - it's an ESPN article about "Teams That Could Slide in 2013" - and Louisville is on there.

We've seen different "locker room material" from programs this summer - Alabama has Texas A&M logos in its weight room, while Michigan State has a quote from Michigan's AD hanging on the wall. But this is the first we've seen that involves the media directly.
