Please dear god let Cinci win this game, just to shut up the Tebow love fest for the final time.

Big East was overrated..

The only teams with a pulse that they beat were WVU and Pitt..

WVU sucks and Pitt is meh.. USF was overrated at the time they played them..

Pair Pitt, WVU, and USF against Wisco, N'western, and Penn State and the Big 10 goes 3-0 against them. Cinci is an 8-4 team in the big ten...

Linemen don't forget blocking fundamentals as soon as their coach is gone. Cinci is getting man-handled in the trenches.

Now we know why Kelly left for Notre Dame...

Why does Meyer need a break? This coaching thing is easy!

Does it seem if the New Year's Day games are good, the game that night always blows?

What I meant was that this is the end of an era for Cinci and EVERYONE knows it. All of those coaches are going somewhere else and some frankly have other schools and jobs on their mind. Maybe Brian Kelly could have held that together for another month had he stayed to coach this game--I don't know. I think the players' bitterness was, as much as anything, a realization to how important he was to Cinci football.

For all UF's issues there is still quite a bit of stability on the staff. Adazzio will be the head coach in the offseason which, from what I've heard, was warmly received by the players.

I would probably find it mildly amusing to see Tebow get hurt running up the score in his last game...

But the martyrdom by the press would make getting hung up on a cross look mild.

Yes, I'm a bad person.

A tribute. Cincinnati was completely exposed as a fraudulent team whose perfect record is a product of poor competition and luck needed even with poor competition (see Pitt, Uconn and Illinois games). It also exposed Brian Kelly as an overrated coach who was at the right place at the right time with pathetic conference competition and luck going his way. Just look at the players out there. Cincinnati was clearly outmatched physically, especially on defense, where a less than stellar offense lit them up. Kelly had time to bring in his players but failed to deliver on the recruiting front. I think we can put to rest any fears some of you alleged Michigan fans have about how Brian Kelly is going to run Rich Rod out of town starting with an upset next year. I've been critical of Rich Rod, he's made mistakes. But he isn't going to lose his job to this hapless coach.

The only positive from yesterday is the laughingstock ND will become under Kelly. No OC, no healthy QB until the summer at the earliest, no defense, no recruiting. I expect a comfortable victory next year.
