After leading his Louisville team to the 2012 Big East Championship, Teddy Bridgewater did not want the credit. After leading the Cardinals to a 33-22 Sugar Bowl win over the Gators of the mighty SEC in a game that was not nearly as close as the score indicated, Bridgewater just wanted to give his mother a hug.

After closing out his sophomore year with 3,718 passing yards, 27 touchdowns and only eight interceptions, Bridgewater was set to enter the team’s 2013 season as a frontrunner for the Heisman Trophy. But he never wanted the school to put together a marketing campaign for him. Just like his entire career, Bridgewater wanted the year to be about the team, not just one person.

It was and is, of course, a noble effort. However, just because the school can’t advertise for its premiere player does not mean Cardinals fans cannot — and the fine folks over at CardsandCats.com did exactly that.

They recommend you watch the below video “loud, on full screen, and after letting it load completely.” As massive Bridgewater fans ourselves, we could not agree more.
