    UC football

    With our Reds playing the way they are I was thinking of what I have to look forward to sports wise. I, unlike most people in Cincinnati am a HUGE and I mean HUGE UC football fan. I follow them religiously. I really think they have a good solid team this year and with a little luck could contend for the Big East title. That's unlikely but if a few things go they're way it's possible. First things first though, they have to find a quarterback that fits well into Brian Kelly's system. Wake Forest QB transfer Ben Mauk is the perfect QB for Kelley if he was 100% but after multiple shoulder surgeries I don't know how good his arm is. Grutza struggled in Don Treadwell's offence but I think he could be ok with Kelly's offence because the spread calls for alot of short intermediate passes, something I think Grutza could handle. The spread also allows the QB to run alot, that's probably Grutza's number one strength. If Kelly doesn't like what he see's out of Mauk or Grutza he might opt to go with True freshman Chazz Anderson, he is fast and has a rocket arm I hear. The defence should be very good, Terril Byrd was All-Big East as a sophmore and Trevor Anderson is an explosive defensive end. The secondary also looks very good with Mike Mickens and D'Angelo Smith at corner. If Kelley can somehow get the UC offence to be above average UC could be very good because this defence can win games by it self. If UC gets off to a good start and are at least 4-2 when Louisville visits Nippert Stadium that will be the biggest game in UC football history.

    Here's a look at the schedule and how I see everything playing out:

    Date Opponent / Event Location Time / Result

    Thu., Aug. 30 vs. Southeast Missouri State Win
    Thu., Sep. 6 vs. Oregon State Win
    Sat., Sep. 15 at Miami (Ohio) Win
    Sat., Sep. 22 vs. Marshall Win
    Sat., Sep. 29 at San Diego State Win
    Sat., Oct. 6 at Rutgers Loss
    Sat., Oct. 13 vs. Louisville Win
    Sat., Oct. 20 at Pittsburgh Loss
    Sat., Nov. 3 at USF Win
    Sat., Nov. 10 vs. Connecticut Win
    Sat., Nov. 17 vs. West Virginia Loss
    Sat., Nov. 24 at Syracuse Win

    9-3 would be pretty good and get UC into a mid-level bowl game, probably the Texas Bowl.

    If their are any UC football fans or juts college football fans who know anything about UC I'd love to hear your thoughts.
