In Greg's first season in 1988, Louis- ville won eight games. In 1989, it was 6-5. Then, in 1990, came the break- through, going 10-1-1 and beating Ala- bama in the Fiesta Bowl. In Jeff's two seasons as starting quar- terback in 1992 and 1993, Louisville was 5-6 and 9-3. His final game was a victory over Michigan State in the Lib- erty Bowl.

(He's still top 10 all-time in all of them.) He was a two-time team MVP as well as MVP in that final bowl game, which simply playing in was a considerable ac- complishment: He had a steel plate and pins in the index finger on his throw- ing hand and still passed for nearly 200 yards and a touchdown in freezing rain.

He played in front of his family and friends. "Jeff made an imprint on Louisville football where he'll always be remem- bered for what his contributions were there. (He) was one piece but a very important piece to kind of help change the dynamic of Louisville football. I think he made it acceptable for other (local) kids, like Chris Redman who followed him and Michael Bush and Brian, to say, 'You don't have to go to Notre Dame like Paul Hornung did.' Or 'You don't have to go to Ohio State or Michigan or Kentucky. You can play at
