Bearcats Falter In Second Half and Fall To Ohio State

In a night that started with promise the Bearcats go down to the Buckeyes unable to keep up in the second half.

The problem for the Bearcats defense is the same as it has been for the first two weeks of the season. The Bearcats can't get off blocks or maintain discipline in coverage or tackle a soul. This team is simply not physical enough up front. That is not a problem I anticipated having this year. They can not hold up at the point of attack against any offensive line that has real live people playing the position. They would do pretty good against corpses, not as well against people. That is a problem, it is going to be a problem for the rest of the year, and Hank Hughes is almost certainly a lock to lose his job at the end of this year. I have an idea what he is trying to do, but I don't see any way that he survives to retain his job next year. He can go back to Stoors where he belongs.

Now, the flip side of this is that the Bearcats offense going to win the Bearcats a ton of games this year. It could be enough to win the AAC, and maybe get the group of 5 slot in one of the access bowls. That would be a fine consolation for a team that will be playing most of the season with one arm tied behind the back. We are in essence the Black Knight from Monty Python.

You are welcome for the laugh.
