Spring Football

University of Cincinnati Official Athletic Site
A pretty in depth look at the secondary. I am a little concerned with the talk about Drew Frey being the rock of the secondary. He just isn't a BCS safety IMO. No amount of quality practice reps will erase the half a dozen catastrophic mental errors he made last year that resulted in opposition TD's.
