Charlie Strong reminds Teddy Bridgewater who the coach is

Teddy Bridgewater is a lot of things. He's the best player on Louisville's football team, he's a Heisman candidate and he's the possible No. 1 pick in next year's NFL Draft. However, he is not the head coach of the Louisville Cardinals, and Charlie Strong had to remind him of that on Saturday.

Facing a fourth-and-two late in the first half against Eastern Kentucky, Strong sent the punt team out onto the field. Bridgewater then waved the punt team off the field, which, not surprisingly, Strong did not appreciate. And he let his quarterback know about it.

"I told him to get off the field," said Strong. "We have enough coaches on the field. We have enough coaches on staff. The punt team is coming. You don't send them off the field."

Lesson learned.

Of course, that little moment between Bridgewater and Strong was the greatest adversity the Cardinals faced on Saturday, as Bridgewater threw for 397 yards and four touchdowns in Louisville's 44-7 win.
