Big Sunday

The Bengals are thin at defensive back.  So thin they had to call up practice squad corner Chris Lewis-Harris.  Nothing against the youngster, but it is comforting to know Blaine Gabbert is still completing barely 50 percent of his passes.   I still like the Bengals chances.  Jones-Drew may get his yards, and may get a couple touchdowns, but the Bengals are still the better team in Jacksonville on Sunday.

Nothing against the NFL, I love it!  But Keegan Bradley versus Rory McIlroy is must-see TV.  The USA has a 10-6 lead going into the 12 singles matches at the Ryder Cup on Sunday.  Coverage begins at Noon on WLWT-TV/NBC. (Bengals are at 4:05, so there's time to drink in some of what the Cup has to offer)  This thing has been awesome.  I love Bubba teeing off on the first hole while the fans are cheering loudly.  Ian Poulter played along with that Saturday, and Poulter is turning in a masterful performance this weekend.  The USA cannot blow this lead.  This is going to be fun.

Anyone in Cincinnati still on the fence regarding UC football?  Yep, there's a bunch of you and I don't get it.  Embrace this program.  It is achieving the best wins-per-dollar than perhaps any BCS team in the country.  Cincinnati loves blue-collar, right?  Coach Butch Jones has come in like Popeye after a can of spinach and whipped the Bearcats into a football version of Pete Rose.  Have you seen them finish plays, finish halves, and finish games?  These dudes are tougher than the gristle I used to eat in junior high when school lunches were really "school lunches."  But old views and stereotypes are tough to break.  I get that.  I don't get staying on the sidelines when you can support a team that grinds, digs, and fights for 60 minutes to beat a decent Virginia Tech team.. The game winning catch by Damon Julian was spectacular.  Munchie Legaux ain't perfect, and sometimes ain't pretty, but he displayed a serious bit of moxie in that final drive.  There should easily be a full house at Nippert next Saturday for the Miami Redhawks.  And don't sleep on Miami. Zach Dysert is one of the best collegiate quarterbacks you are going to see.  He can beat you so many ways.  How about 6 touchdown passes and over 100 yards rushing in Saturday's win at Akron.  Ridiculous.
