UC-Syracuse 4th Quarter

| No TrackBacks
Tommy G reports that Guidugli is done today with a concussion.

On third and six, Brandon Sharpe sacks Collaros, and Collaros slams the ball into the turf. Nice punt by Rogers for 53 yards.

On third and 10, hand off to Bailey. Great closing speed by Frey to limit him to a two-yard gain. SU has to punt again. At some point, the Orange are going to need to score some points.

Pead dropped for no gain will make it third and 2 at the UC 40. UC takes the delay of game penalty. Third and seven from the 45. Collaros scrambles and picks up the first down. Nice run by Pead, who gains 33 yards to bring the ball to the SU 4. He breaks a couple tackles and uses his speed. Which sets up the 4-yard TD pass from Collaros to Adrien Robinson. Another quick, productive drive for the Bearcats.

UC 28, Syracuse 7 (9:53 to go)

Syracuse seems to have a problem running its offense without false-starting. Three and out, and I think you can close the book on this one.

Collaros is 22 of 27 for 295 yards and four TDs. Not a terrible day, I suppose.

I wonder if anybody is watching the Iowa-Indiana tilt. At this point, that's a pretty important game for the Bearcats.

I also wonder if it's almost pointless to talk about whether BK will leave UC or stay. One guy can say, BK is happy. No need for him to go. Facilities are going to improve. He loves Ohio. He can get to the national title game easier at UC than at many other places in the country. Another guy says, he can get more money somewhere else and can eliminate some of the concerns he faces at UC, he wants to be in the national spotlight every week, he'd love to go to Notre Dame.

At this point, nobody can have any idea what will happen, and I can see why UC fans get annoyed by the constant attention to this question. I, of course, have helped contribute to the discussion. With the epilogue in Bearcats Rising and with this story I wrote for Cincinnati Profile. But at this point, I'm kind of tired of hearing it and talking about it. There will be plenty of time to debate this when coaches start losing their jobs in another month or so. For now, whether BK is here next year or not, I'd just enjoy the ride if I were you.

After Collaros takes a hit that knocks off his helmet, Chazz Anderson is in the game with about 1:30 to go. Looks like he'll just hand off to Pead to run out the clock.

Nice win for UC here. Now, the Bearcats will have to hope Indiana can come back on Iowa to pull off the upset.

UC 28, Syracuse 7 (final)
