Petrino meets the press


Bobby Petrino looked serious as he walked into his first game-week news conference as Louisville's coach. His mood was understandable considering he was about to announce that top receiver DeVante Parker would miss nearly two months with a broken toe.

Petrino departed a half-hour later appearing more upbeat after discussing a Cardinals team he believes can overcome that setback with a deep receiving corps and a defense that returns several starters. The hard part is waiting until next Monday night to prove it.

But Petrino relishes having extra time to prepare for his second debut coaching Louisville, which will host Miami in the season opener. The game will  be Cardinals' Atlantic Coast Conference debut and their coach is eager to make a good first impression.
