Ridder has more rushing yards than BC has total offense. This is the team that got waxed in two consecutive games by Memphis? :whiteflag

OL playing like a levy in a N'orleans' deluge....of course when you bring 10 and dare BC to try the throw game to beat you, you have a pretty solid gameplan.

Defense suddenly showed up.
Pressure on the QB there straight plays. When was the last time that happened?

The BC OL was extraordinarily overrated (they got dominated against every good team we played) and Cincinnati is pretty good.

WTF did you honestly expect from this game? :ace

At least we stopped the QB option at the end of the half. Take away that play and we have a scoreless tie!

This is definitely not a RE-tool! It’s a complete rebuild and it’s going to take 3 years.

Go Eagles!

Does anyone know how many 6-6 teams have won their bowl game thus far?

We didn’t play well that half. We are much better than what we showed.

Kent St. is one. They looked pretty good, relatively speaking. I think their coach will get some looks in the future.

Head coach was fired, the OC bolted, team MVP not playing, arguably their best defender not playing, and Brian White is calling the plays. And BC was not very good before all of that happened.

So much for dominating the LOS....of course, matters not when you can't tackle.


Put Corners on the bozo filter, along with IB. You'll save brain cells.

With the amount of pressure cincy is bringing, they need to get Grosel out of the pocket. Run some draws. Screen passes.
The playcalling is high school level right now. Maybe worse than that.

Watching a game like this, you realize the chasm that exists between marquee teams like LSU and Clemson and 90% of FBS.

Not going to miss LBs covering WRs or the 10 yard of space given to the slot receiver.

Put in a backup QB for Grossel. No sense of running him back out there as he has been complete trash this game. I’d be interested to see what one of the other backups could do.
