DesperateDerelict Posted November 24, 2008 Report Share Posted November 24, 2008 Yes, yes, I know......the Big East this year is comparable to the NFC North, with several marginally good teams and a couple of Detroit Lion - type doormats. Regardless, it's still alot of fun to see these kids play their hearts out, and to see superior game coaching.Saturday night's win against Pitt was a blast, enabling at least one Cincinnati football squad to beat a Pittsburgh team ....in this case, for UC's 1st win ever against the Panthers. The defense, after the initial drive, played inspired football. QB Tony Pike played with alot of poise, and alot of courage. FUN, FUN, FUN!I saw something very weird at the end of the game. Pitt ran a play, time ran down, and the fans began to pour out of the north stands on to the field. The goal posts were well on their way to going down for the count. The officials put 4 seconds back on the clock due to a penalty, and the PA announcer asked the fans to leave the field. It was amazing - like watching the tide going out in fast forward. A solid line of fans filled the endzone all the way to the 40 yard line, and this sea of black & red ebbed off the field, through the endzone, and up into the stands. The northern goalposts, well past half mast, were erected back in place by volunteers with - what looked like - shuffleboard sticks. All of this took place in about 45 seconds - it was really weird! Anyway - Go Bearcats! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
