Spring football games are played throughout March and April every year. A lot of them are televised, but the Louisville Cardinals game this year was not.
At least fans could see highlights on the local news afterward. Well, that wasn’t an option for Cardinals fans either since coach Bobby Petrino’s program placed a video restriction on the game.
However, that didn’t stop local sportscasters from attempting to deliver a postgame summary.

What a clever and humorous way to make the point that the video restriction was ridiculous.
In the first week of April, Petrino refused to allow cornerback Shaq Wiggins to transfer to Mississippi State, presumably because former Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Grantham left for the same position with the Bulldogs this offseason.
This video restriction leaves the college football world shaking its head at Louisville for the second time this month.
