All my question were answered against Pittsburgh. I was wondering what to expect this year with Zach Collaros leaving, and Junior QB Munchie Legaux showed that the offense is not missing a beat.

He seems more comfortable with the offense. He makes it hard on teams to game-plan when he can also control the game on his feet. The running back position was also in question with Isaiah Pead leaving. Senior running back George Winn and sophomore Ralph David Abernathy IV is a perfect running back combination. Mixing in a power runner (Winn) and a slasher, Abernathy, keeps the defense on their toes.

The big question that I had was with the defense with J.K. Shcaffer, D-linemen Derek Wolfe and John Hughes leaving had me wondering who was going to fill those shoes. Watching the defense play the way they also didn't miss a beat. They played the same tough physical Bearcat Defense that we have all grown accustomed to. Linebacker Greg Blair was all over the field with 10 tackles and Senior defensive ends Walter Stewart and Dan Giorando combined with 2 and half sacks.

At the end of the game all my questions were answered, and it just made me more excited for the rest of the season. The game coming up against Delaware State, well, its basically like a scrimmage game. If the Bearcats come out like they did against Pittsburgh its going to be a long day for Delaware State. This should be another exciting season and another chance for a Big East title.
