Cincinnati Quick Predictions

A Bearcat is not a real thing.
Syracuse has had an interesting couple of weeks in terms of football. They get shelled by UConn at home, they fire Greg Robinson, and they go out and beat Notre Dame in South Bend. Simply a whirlwind end to a season full of disappointment and maybe a little redemption.

Syracuse will enter Cincinnati with the clear intention of preventing the Bearcats from representing the Big East in the BCS. It has been decreed. Also, for Greg to end his coaching career at Syracuse with a win. Cincinnati has won its last four games; wins over then #23 USF, #25 West Virginia, Louisville, and #20 Pittsburgh. They are undefeated at home and have the overall record of 9-2, 5-1 in the Big East with their lone loss to Connecticut at the Rent. This is a team that is fast and powerful. Their quarterback, Tony Pike is a stud with 1788 yards, 15 TD, and only three interceptions. This is a dangerously offensive team that also has quite a nice defense. Although one of their stars recently tore his ACL and will be done for the year, this is a defense that could stifle Syracuse’s offensive abilities and dreams for glory in their last outing of the year. While I would love to say that Syracuse will do it, I just feel like the probability of lightening striking twice this late in the year is a tall order for even these hard working kids. I’m picking Cincy over the Orange 37 to 20.

It should be an entertaining game with all of these match-ups, but it looks like it is Cincinnati’s BCS Bowl to lose. Syracuse will probably just not have the defensive goods like they did in South Bend to stop another beast of a team. Plus, Cincinnati is much better than Notre Dame, despite the fact that this program is not as storied as ND. Either way, congratulations and good luck to the seniors that will no longer don the Orange uniform.

    So yeah it really didn't matter after the fact that Pittsburgh beat West Virginia late afternoon yesterday, clinching the Big East for Cincy. Today was a trainwreck so good thing. Report card out soon.
