LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - University of Louisville fans who want head football
coach Charlie Strong to stay just wish the coach would put the rumors to rest.
They've heard them all they say they're tired of them. Wednesday was a long

sources and reports out of Tennessee, Strong apparently is staying put. Fans just
want Strong to make it official.

"I think it's a smart move on their part, and they would be very lucky
to have him," added young Cardinal fan Taylor Eubanks, "but I think

Eubanks kept a mature outlook about the Strong saga, saying, "I think
