Getting this started much later in the day than usual, none the less here we go.
One of the biggest questions I have about the Bearcats offense this year is a simple one. What is Mike Bajakian going to do with Jordan Luallen? The answer might just be everything. Luallen is now officially a slot receiver, and a massive one at that, but he won't just be a receiver. He will play at running back and quarterback and anywhere else they can think to get him on the field. If you want a precedent for how I think Luallen will be used I'd take a good look at Trey Burton and how he was used by the Florida Gators in 2010. I think Luallen can do some of the same things and can be a game planning nightmare. UC won't have more than a handful of plays for Luallen but the amount of time opposing staffs will have to devote to dealing with him is almost worth its weight in gold.
My, and I am guessing everyone elses, favorite Bearcat is on the grind again. Kila is back in the gym working on his handle getting ready for next season. Dan Hoard caught up with him and SK put the final nail in the coffin about him leaving early. He is loving his experience and his time with the Bearcats that he doesn't want to leave, possibly ever, definitely not now. There is little doubt that SK will play in the NBA at some point, but he is in no rush to join his best friend Lance Stephenson in the league. I for one am a little bit relieved.
