Charlie Strong goes crowd surfing after West Virginia win

Charlie Strong is excited — really excited. And who can blame him?

Louisville's 38-35 upset over West Virginia Saturday was the biggest win in Strong's short career and gave the Cardinals a three-game winning streak, one win short of bowl eligibility before. This after no one expected anything from Louisville this season.

So after Saturday's game — before the team broke into a locker room version of West Virginia's unofficial theme song, John Denver's "Country Roads" — Strong allowed his emotions to overtake him and he leaped into his sea of players and began to crowd surf.

It's by far the best coach-team celebration caught on air (and available for public consumption) this season and frankly, a far better crowd-surfing job than that of Notre Dame hoops coach Mike Brey.
