A Positive thought for the day..... and next fall....

Posted: 10/29/2012 5:21 PM

A Positive thought for the day..... and next fall.... 


--- The UC running game George Winn, Ralph David Abernathy IV and Munchie Legaux are all averaging exactly 6.0 yards per rush.

Only one other school in the FBS can claim three different ball-carriers averaging at least six: Oregon (Kenjon Barner 6.9, De'Anthony Thomas 8.6, Marcus Mariota 6.6).

Certainly, the UC backs deserve a significant amount of credit for all they've done, but we'd all be remiss if this conversation didn't start with an offensive line just owning people right now. The most encouraging aspect for UC? All five (O-line) current starters will be back next season.

Hopefully whoever is behind that line has his head on straight and can take advantage of the experience.

that is great to see about the o-line. build it from the line of scrimmage out butch...that's the way to develop a program that can sustain winning on an annual basis.

This year is really a steping stone to next year.
Doesn't mean we shouldn't let it all hang out here and now... but with all we lost from last year's team... 5-2 isn't bad.
Especially if you consider the losses are against two teams in the Top 26... by a grand total of 9 points.

i agree. my preseason predictions was 7 or 8 wins for this year. we seem to have a more talented roster than we ever have before, but there is just to much inexperience and youth to expect it to all come together.

and even with the 2 game losing streak, we can surpass 8 wins. just have to clean things up fast to do it.

Agree on the talent level and youth.   Recently I was watching some highlights of our 2006, 2007 and 2008 teams.  Obviously those teams were very good, but they did not have the talent across the board and the depth this squad has.   What those teams did have was a lot of saavy and some toughness.   Once this group picks up on that they are going to be a very dangerous squad.   2013 could be a very special year if things align properly.

2013 could be a great year but still comes back to who is going to QB. 2013 is either B.J. Munchie or a redshirt freshman. Not a recipe for success.

That's the ASTOUNDING thing. There are a lot of guys on another UC site (won't bother to name it) either refusing to attend any more games, or having additional enthusiasm with basketball, "now that the football season is unraveling." These are generally the same people who were looking at 8-4 and a "rebuilding year".  They also predicted losses vs. UL and Toledo (in the case of UL a blowout).

I dont think its out of the realm of possibility to think that Coney, Norvell, or Coyne could succeed in their opening year, especially with quality RBs WRs and the entire OLine returning...... assuming we cut the cord with Munchie.  There are alot of pieces in places for a young guy to succeed.  Its not like the useable playbook will get any smaller wink

Don't forget they are calling for CBJ to be fired.  I was pretty astounded to see that over there.  If we are being honest, there has always been a number of guys over there that has been upset over the attention and resources the football program has taken away from the basketballl program.   A little lack of success just gives them reason to be negative.   For the life of me I don't know why if a fan of UC you can't be an ardent supporter of every sports program at the university.  

All I know is that I am showing up to the game against Syracuse wearing red and cheering for my Bearcats.

I know there's a guy on another thread named Rath who apparently isn't attending the Syracuse game.  Said something along the lines that he wouldn't boo because he wouldn't be there.

Talk about a total douche.  He's also apparently also a Miami grad...which would explain quite a bit.

I don't get it.

The last two games were very disappointing, but it's not the end of the world.  This ship-is-sinking mentality is mystifying.

Maybe that other board is full of people who aren't happy unless they're b!tching.

Rath is a great guy in person. But, I don't agree with his approach either.

Wow, anyone jumping off the bandwagon after 2 AWAY losses to good football teams weren't on the bandwagon to begin with. Look at the seasons Va Tech, Auburn, Arkansas, etc. are having, and I dont think they would consider this "unraveling". It amazes me how snobby some fans can be. Unless the team is undefeated and playing flawless football, they won't come to games.

Toledo and Louisville's combined record is 15-1.  Louisville is a top ten team and Toledo is one win from being in the top 25!  I'am still positive for the Bearcats season!  Don't be fair weather!  Believe in your Coach and Team!  Go Bearcats - Beat the Cuse!!

I have to admit I am stunned at some of the vitriolic comments I have read.

Exactly... we have lost to two Top 26 programs on the road in bad weather by 9 points.
We have a very good football team... we still have an outside shot at the league title.
But really I look at this IN PART as table setting for next year's squad.

i've got to admit...i hadn't even entertained the thought that we would have "fans" talking about not coming to nippert saturday because the team dared to lose 2 straight games.

people like that are ridiculous.

Now all you need is a guy that can throw the ball well (Munchie isn't the answer)... unless you want to revert to the triple run option... noidea

If we ran it well it would be ok with me.
