Last year at about this time, Charlie Strong addressed the crowd at Governor's Cup luncheon by explaining the long road of hard work that they had in front of them to get to where they needed to be as a program.
This season, after many national publications have the Cardinals picked to win the Big East, Strong spent his time at the podium trying to keep everything in perspective.
"A lot of times when people think that you’re rated so high, you’re just going to roll the ball out to them. We’re not good enough to just roll the ball out against anybody.”
Recently, a few Cardinal players took to Twitter to make their own predictions...something that Strong has a firm opinion against, stating "social media will be the downfall of society."
