Louisville Coach Charlie Strong Blames Call of Duty for Loss to Pittsburgh

By Jason McIntyre

Here’s Louisville football coach Charlie Strong addressing the media Monday, two days after his Cardinals fell to the Panthers, 21-14. “I said on Tuesday we have guys that miss class because they want to stay (up) all night and play that video game, whatever it was. I didn’t even know what it was, but it’s such a big deal … That new … call of Duty. It was a Call of Duty. They got Called to Duty. It’s young people. That’s what we’re dealing with … they want to try it, it engulfs them.”

Two turnovers, five penalties, quarterback sacked three times … could Call of Duty end up costing the Cardinals a trip to a bowl game? To get to .500, Louisville must split its last two games, both of which are on the road (UConn, South Florida). [via Hot Clicks]
