Breaking Down Another Cincinnati Fan Freakout

The Belk Bowl did not turn out to any Bearcat fans liking, but the overreaction to the loss, and projecting forward the implications of that game to next year has gotten completely out of hand. I don't know what it is about some segments of the Bearcat fan base to assume that anything bad happening, a loss, a coach leaving, a recruit choosing another school to assume that the end is neigh.

Bearcats Slow Start Dooms Them In Belk Bowl

Stop me if you have heard this before, but a slow start to the game in the first quarter finds the Bearcats in a double digit hole before the first quarter is out. A valiant comeback falls short as small mistakes become big problems and the Bearcats lose.

Bearcats Down Two Offensive Line Starters

Bujnoch has been battling an injury to his right foot for most of the year had surgery over the break and will not be suiting up against North Carolina. Likewise Sam Longo was injured in the Louisville game and had surgery as well. It goes with out saying, but this is a huge blow.

Tar Heels To Watch: Marquise Williams

I certainly wouldn't be the first person to make parallels between the circumstances this year of Marquise Williams and Brendon Kay. But that isn't quite right, Kay had to scrap and work his but off just to get a chance. Williams was always going to be the guy, the injury to Brynn Renner gave him a chance to show why.

Tar Heels To Watch: Norkeithus Otis

In a one off game like a bowl individual match ups can go a long way towards determining the outcome of a game. Not that long ago SMU won a bowl game having by far the worst season of the two teams because Margus Hunt lost his mind.

Film Study: Eric Ebron Seam Machine
