LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – Two story lines emerged from Louisville's 34-31 overtime victory Cincinnati Friday night.

You know the first: Louisville falls behind, rallies, ignores the rain and wins. The Cards trailed by 10 points in the third quarter against the Bearcats.

The second angle was the national story line: The more the Cards keep winning, the more U of L coach Charlie Strong climbs on the list of desirable coaching candidates for jobs that will open, especially in the Southeastern Conference.

That's what Pat Forde wrote on Yahoo.com, outlining why Strong figures to be a top candidate for the opening at Arkansas. Forde believes that U of L faces a stiff challenge in keeping Strong from an SEC job. Here is the link to Forde's story:

Gregg Doyel wrote a similar piece for CBSSports.com. Doyel quotes U of L athletic director Tom Jurich as saying that he'll pay Strong as much as any coach in the country.
