I'm headed out to the USF/Cincy game. It is almost a sellout, which is extremely rare down here, and should be a great game. I was able to get a ticket inside the forty for $35 from ticketmaster; I only mention this because I remember how difficult and expensive it is to get those kind of tix at the Big House.
Cincy has beaten USF three times in a row, and USF won't be taking them lightly. In addition, USF's DC, Joe Tresey, was fired last year by Cincy coach Brian Kelly. This is reminiscent of ND having first Greg Mattison and now Corwin Brown on their staff to help them against UM, or Jon Gruden's dismantling of Oakland in the Super Bowl; there is a lot of potential for the game to be affected by inside info. In addition, a Cincy WR insulted Tresey this week, saying his coaches are "licking their chops" to face Tresey.
For UM fans, there is ex-UM recruit BJ Daniels, who could have really helped at UM last year, leading USF and really not skipping a beat after replacing injured Matt Grothe.
This game has a little something for everyone, and should be an entertaining way for football fans to spend Thursday night.
