OT - Cincinatti stadium

Submitted by Chad Sexington Henne on November 7th, 2009 at 9:47 PM

Cincinatti plays an obnoxious cat-screech after EVERY play, just like at Penn State. I don't know if it's the exact same, but it's just as vexing.

Also, it's one of the quietest BCS stadia I think I've ever heard. If I didn't know beforehand, I'd never know they were a top 10 team.

I live in the area, and even the moneyed alumns don't give a crap. They're mostly still pissed off the president ran Huggins out of town 3 yrs ago. If anyone with a big time program waanted Brian Kelly right now, he'd jump fast. He's made public statements about the difficulty of getting fans to games, and now the UC admins are hesitating on the promises they made to Kelly two years ago about upgrading facilities (the practice facility Herbstreit and Musberger keep talking about).

I honestly think that Kelly's going to jump to a big time potential BCS school unless Cincy somehow makes a miracle run to a national championship-- Illinois, ND if they go tits up, Texas A&M, come right to my mind. No comment on Kelly to UMich.

Other than that, I like it.

I don't think anyone cares about Cincy football, either. Begs the question, why the hell is this an 8 p.m. game? Stanford-Oregon would have been a better game.

With ND's loss today and their probable loss at Pitt next week and maybe again at Stanford, Brian Kelly could quickly become the most-hated coach on this blog by next Sept.

Kelly has no support in the ND hierarchy or boosters who actually matter due to non-football matters. I think more probable is Illinois or Texas A&M, but you never know if ND really craps their pants the next 3 weeks.

Well since their stadium is only 35,000 it shouldn't be that loud. But Beaver Stadium was probably the quietest I've ever heard it yesterday on tv. Even when Penn State had it close yesterday it still seemed quieter than even Michigan Stadium on tv. I guess the fans didn't really show up.
