It's no surprise that Armon Binns won Big East player of the week; 8 receptions, 175 yards and 3 touchdowns put you ahead of the class in a league that has produced the likes of Larry Fitzgerald among others. Armon was coming into his own as the receivers like Dominick Goodman and Mardy Gilyard were putting the final stamp on their careers. Now that his turn has come front and center, starting last year, he is proving to be a legitimate go to receiver.
Armon is on the verge of being the recyclable and renewable energy for Zach Collaros and the UC offense. Just keep going back to him; and back to him and....you get my drift. When a player is hot you go back to them until someone stops them. And as Armon gains more confidence and Zach confirms that confidence by going to him for big plays, this offense will return to its high power posture we've come to know. With Isaiah Pead running well and John Goebel the perfect compliment, the running game looks good. Now add a healthy Ben Guidugli at tight end and your weapons are set for attack on the Big East.
But rest assured nothing is more alarming to defenses than knowing when it's third and long, or that if you're in the red zone, the other team has wide receiver you can't cover. You don't have to speak on it, you just know it. Know this: Armon Binns is becoming a receiver that fits that profile and if he and Collaros continue their chemistry and Pead keeps running the way he has, thanks offensive line, recycling Armon Bins every series will put the Bearcats closer to another Big East title this year. A title some thought was out of reach; but with Armon Binns, going to get the ball or another title is well within reach.
That's the way I see it, sitting in The Box Seat.
