    I wonder when people will finally admit that the Big East is a pretty good football conference. Personally, I'd easily rate them above the ACC...

    From attending this game, I was quite impressed with the UC defense. The offense has some work to do, but they could be quite strong when they get the running game going with the three-headed running back monster of Glatthaar, Benton, and Moore.

    It was a weird game. You don't expect to see a team with negative rushing yards as of the third quarterhave a sizable lead. They finally went into positive figures to stay late in the third quarter. Granted, the Bearcats lost about 30 rushing yards on two bad shotgun snaps early in the game to create the large negative number, but they still didn't run the ball well. Six interceptions by the defense certainly helps make up for it!

    How about the 55-yard field goal by the same redshirt freshman kicker who missed two extra points in the last game? Coach Kelly said he'd be playing on the soccer team i he had another game like that! I have to give props to Coach Kelly for having the confidence in his kicker to try that field goal.

    Go Bearcats! Beat Miami!

    BK did everything under the sun to force Jake out of the job this week. He responded by hitting 61 of 62 kicks from every spot on the field. He reclaimed the job in practice and ran with it when the lights turned on...

    I'm a little more concerned with the O-Line. You are correct about the style of play changing for them. These are not coach Kelly's guys and they do not fit the system very well. I would look for a big time influx of O-line recruits in the 2 seasons. Until then these guys will have to try to iimprove as best as possible.

    I don't see USC as a nearly unamimous consensus #1 pick. I see this year as just about as wide open as it can be with the BCS setup. USC's past records speak for themselves but so does their loss to Oregon State and their regular season finale loss to a 7-6 UCLA team, when they scored only 9 points.
    We can agree that it does look like they have a nice group of freshmen and that USC is 9/5 for the NC, I just don't want any of it.

    Nice win for UC. Beating OSU, who is possibly a second tier Pac 10 team, and doing it on ESPN.
    It will be interesting to see how they fare in their first road matchup at Miami, who lost a heartbreaker this weekend.
