... yes, Tony Pike will start at quarterback for the Bearcats this Friday vs. Illinois. So said Brian Kelly on the Big East teleconference this morning.

"The six weeks since the injury has allowed the bone to heal properly to the point that we've minimized the risk of putting him out there," Kelly said. "He's excited by the chance to play on Friday."

He was asked about Pike's progress the past few weeks.

"It's confidence more than anything else. Obviously he understands the game's not played in a vacuum. It's not flag football. He's going to get hit. One thing about Tony is he's got escapability. He's going to get on the perimeter. ... I'm sure he's going to have some moments on Friday where he goes, "Oh, OK, here it comes," that he's got to take care of himself.
