    Re: Sugar Bowl UC.vs. Florida

    Unfortunately, this game went about as I thought. I was hoping UC's offense would show better. I just didn't see how UC's defense could compete. Just a total dismantling.

    And actually, I think Brian Kelly would have made some difference. I thought UC was way too high and playing out of control in the first quarter. I think Quinn didn't have the faintest idea how to prepare the team and control them. They came out with entirely too much bravado and bluster and not enough discipline and focus. Making your head coaching debut against a top echelon SEC team and best coach in the country can make you look pretty bad.

    But ultimately, I don't think it would have mattered. They might have been able to make a game of it for a half, but UC just doesn't have the horses for Florida. Very few teams do.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    I think Texas will beat Alabama. I know I'm in the minority on that one but I think it will happen.

    I'm guessing middle of the pack. A solid nine or ten win team this season, depending on their schedule. Though their lack of talent defensively may have meant a couple more losses.

    2009-10 UC reminds me a little of UGA's Matt Stafford-led squads, in that they could score in bunches. (Though their team speed is below that of the Bulldogs and they have nothing close to Moreno.)

    I've never heard a PA announcer before who couldn't enunciate well enough to distinguish between "Pass is complete" and "Pass incomplete" -- he was atrocious. It's not the same guy I remember from my Tulane years, and I hope to heaven that Saints fans don't have to endure him on a weekly basis.

    Other thoughts from the game:

    - This team looked exactly like a team that didn't have a head coach and had assistants who were playing things out for a game check and had flights booked to Indiana or New York once the game was over.

    - I'm now very happy that Jeff Quinn did not get the head coaching job. The playcalling was absolutely horrible. We were sitting in the stands and wondering if Kelly had taken his playbook to South Bend with him. Too many designed roll-outs (why shrink the field when your top WR operates best on the run and in space?), not enough quick passes, and every run play seemed slow-developing. It was just a bad gameplan for a team like Florida.

    - UC has no playmakers on defense. They got through the season on 50% luck and 50% the strength of their offense. To compete at the proverbial next level (which, for UC, the next level is the elite 5-10 teams in college football), they simply need more talent on defense than they've had. They lack the DBs to play press coverage, which is a must against guys like Riley Cooper, who don't want to play physical football. They lack the front-7 to pressure the passer. They don't do anything well, and last night it got exposed.

    - It's been said before, but I'll say it again -- UC's band stinks and it's an embarrassment to the university that they put it on the field for games. It sounded like a pep-band compared to Florida. If you aren't going to do it right, leave them at home because it makes the school look mid-major.

    Otherwise, I had a fun time in New Orleans. Looking forward to next year's road trip to Arizona when UC gets the crap beat out of them in the Fiesta Bowl.

    LSU wouldn't have done it either. UC was a good team that lost their head coach, that ran into a great college QB playing his last football game, for a coach that is going to be taking some time off for health problems. You could have never scripted this scenario. It was the perfect storm that the Bearcats ran into.

    I truly believe that Cincy is a top 5-7 college team this year that a majoruty of teams would have had trouble with. Until we get a playoff I don't think we will ever know what teams would have done what. It's all just speculative.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    Of course it's all speculative...I'd have UC in the 12-15 range myself.

    Uh huh, UC certainly didn't stop trying to score so why should Florida? if the shoe had been on the other foot I bet UC isn't taking a knee at the end.

    Yeah, I was watching it on TV and I was thinking "Really, that's the size of your band?" when they first came out. They were small and sounded small. I would have assumed they would be better based on the CCM's reputation. I guess a lot of those music majors don't concern themselves with marching band.

    Third. The rest of the SEC hasn't looked all that good in the bowl season have they? Auburn almost lost to Northwestern. South Carolina is being shut out at half time against UCONN. LSU lost to a Penn State team who had 0 top 25 wins this year (though I do believe PSU is a quality team). Kentucky lost to Clemson. Georgia beat up a .500 Texas A&M team. Tennessee got blown out by Virginia Tech. The two teams at the top of the SEC are incredibly good. The rest of the conference this year was ho-hum.

    They were up by 27 points with 8 seconds left, the game is over. There is no point in running the ball. Take a knee. Classless move by Meyer.

    Alabama could have scored again against Florida in the last minute of the SEC title game, but Saban called off the dogs. Think Florida fans would have been happy if Bama tacked on another 7 there? I don't.

    Sorry, but I don't see classless, I see a 4th string running back who doesn't get to play often getting some carries on national TV, it's the other teams job to stop them, taking a knee IMO is more of an insult, if Bama had scored again I would not have cared, who would care? a loss is a loss.

    The SEC is really, really top heavy this season. There is Alabama and Florida. LSU is a distant third. Then there is the rest of the league lumped together each roster having some significant flaws. Don't come ready to play and they can womp you but most of the 2009 SEC is beatable.

    But really it's Florida and Alabama. Truthfully, Florida is the best team but they have a couple key guys out either because of stupid or an injury and they just absolutely failed to execute in the SEC title game. They are an explosive/dangerous team in all aspects of the game. Alabama has some issues but they executed flawlessly in the SEC title game. Still, if not for a dropped swing pass and a miracle open field tackle by their punter, Bama would've been down by 8 to Florida at the half....

    Florida is the best team in college IMHO. I think a Cincy/Alabama game might have been more compelling.

    CCM strongly discourages their students from playing in the band. Believe it or not, the band grew about ten perecent from last year and is improved overall. There is a very long way to go and they are largely neglected by the university.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.
