Bearcats Breakfast 9.13.11

| No TrackBacks
Standard abbreviated Tuesday morning Breakfast with the media luncheon post coming this afternoon.

Let's eat...

--- Andrea Adelson is writing about how the Big East is struggling on the offensive line across the board. I'd contend that's not the case at Cincinnati.

For all the concerns over a line with three new starters, the Cats haven't been bad through two games up front (sans two fourth-and-1 plays).

In fact, in the two categories Adelson looks at, UC ranks 11th nationally in rushing offense and 31st in sacks allowed. Granted, the numbers are slightly skewed because of small sample size and playing Austin Peay, but they certainly weren't the only team playing a cupcake in one of the first two weeks.

Against UT the Cats gave up two sacks, one other TFL and four QB hurries. Zero sacks would be better, but all in all, the protection from the line wasn't the problem (though, the accusation by Tennessee DL Derrick Hood that they knew run or pass prior to the play by looking at the tackle wasn't good).

Toss in Isaiah Pead leading the country in yards per carry (min 15 carries) and you have an encouraging start for a unit tabbed as a question mark coming in.

--- Tommy G had
this feature on seniors Randy Martinez and Evan Davis from Bearcats Football Weekly last week if you want to look more at them.

--- RB Isaiah Pead made
the Big East Honor Roll for his 155-yard performance against Tennessee.

--- Butch Jones spoke on the Big East coaches teleconference yesterday. Not much was said other than Jones saying he would go for it again in both fourth down situations if presented. I would link to the audio for you, but every other coach in the conference has a link up on the BigEast.org page except for Jones'. Here's the page in case BE folks get it going later.

--- I really wasn't kidding about this brief blog thing. Sorry, just remember to check back this afternoon.

We'll call this a Kramer blog. Quick hello and out the door.
