Georgia state government shows what it means to live a rivalry

Louisville is very deserving of honors for its Sugar Bowl win over Florida. The Cardinals controlled the game from the opening kick to the final gun in their 33-23 upset of the then-No. 3 Gators. 

Now Charlie Strong's team is receiving official recognition from a state government. But not the commonwealth of Kentucky, or even the state of Louisiana. No, Louisville is being honored by the State Senate of Georgia.

“I got a lot of thumbs up,” Sen. John Albers, who introduced the bill, told the Louisville Courier-Journal. “Down here in Georgia, we go by the ABF mentality. Anybody but Florida.”

We would throw in ESPNU's "Never Graduate" tagline here, but Albers has yet to actually graduate from the University of Louisville. He is currently enrolled in online courses through the university in an attempt to finish a degree he started back in 1990.

For the record, the Journal-Courier reports the Georgia legislature is working on an official resolution to honor Georiga's Capital One Bowl over Nebraska, and the commonwealth of Kentucky is working on the same for its Cardinals.
