It’s ok, America.

Feel free to jump on the Bearcats’ bandwagon.

Cincinnati left no doubt against a solid Memphis team yesterday, pummeling them from stem to stern, 49-10.

After losing twice to these guys last year, yesterday’s victory felt like some sweet vengeance.

And the college football media certainly took notice.

Desmond Ridder has gone from being a question mark in many minds to one of the nation’s best dual-threat quarterbacks.

CBS Sports is calling Cincinnati’s defense “elite.”

Monday Morning Quarterback is discussing possible NFL interest in Luke Fickell as coach hiring and firing season ramps up.

Bearcat Nation looks to grow considerably in the coming weeks as Cincinnati pushes toward the College Football Playoff. And that’s just fine with me.

Thanks for your support for Down the Drive and looking forward to exciting week of coverage as the Bearcats prepare for a showdown with Houston.
