Bobby Petrino Jokes That Louisville Should Have Scored "80" On Florida State Because Of The Playoff

Bobby Petrino calls an inexplicable timeout vs. Florida State.


Louisville head coach Bobby Petrino dropped an interesting quote after his team's win over Boston College.

Louisville had no trouble with Boston College on Saturday afternoon, as the Cardinals obliterated the Eagles 52-7. But unless Clemson finds a way to lose two ACC games before the end of the season, Louisville won't get a chance to play for an ACC title. So the Cardinals, who are ranked No. 7 in the College Football Playoff standings, would likely need mayhem to sneak into the field.

After the game, head coach Bobby Petrino was asked about his team's playoff standings, and gave an interesting response. H essentially joked that his team should have run up the score on Florida State back in mid-September. They won that game 63-20 as it was.

In reality, there is no score against Florida State that would really change Louisville's standing. The Cardinals' loss to Clemson is the main problem with its College Football Playoff candidacy. Still, it's an interesting take. Florida State fans won't like hearing it.
