Charlie Strong Likes Phil Collins


Fox Sports’ David Ubben dove into Charlie Strong’s Louisville tenure, to ascertain how he turned the program around. Buried within is this gem: Phil Collins’ “In the Air Tonight” appears to be Strong’s jam.

"Players got used to listening to rap or R&B before games until Strong surprised the team again about halfway through the season. He walked over to the stereo and set Phil Collins’ “In The Air Tonight” to play on repeat. Nobody dared ask why or if they could change the monotonous selection."

"Louisville had a new unofficial pregame theme song."

No word on whether he finds the pre-Duke Genesis albums “too artsy, too intellectual.”
