Talking about Louisville

Temple coach Steve Addazio wrapped up talk about the Owls' loss at Pitt last Saturday and previewed this Saturday's Big East game against undefeated Louisville, which is 8-0 and ranked 12th in this week's Associated Press poll and 10th in the BCS standings, during a teleconference with reporters Tuesday morning.
"I'm excited to play Louisville," said Addazio, whose team is 3-4 overall and 2-2 in the Big East. "I they're a really, really good team. There's no question they're the best team we've played to date, and that provides a tremendous opportunity for our program, and we've got to go take that challenge on on the road.
"We have to play well; we don't have to play tight. There's no reason to do that. We've just got to go out there, enjoy the game and play like hell, and let it all hang out. That's our intent - to go hard and enjoy playing in a big-time football game Saturday at Louisville."
