I watched the game of UCF and Pitt. Talk about a choke coaching job by head coach Josh Hephl. Even the announcers were baffled and could not figure out the lame play calling. Instead of taking advantage of Pitts injuries by their corner backs by continuing to pass the ball UCF kept running the ball up the middle for no gain. Talk about a lost opportunity for the league. The UCF fan base is livid over the dumb play calling.
Another thing did you see how many empty seats were in the stadium? I know the best of the best are doing good but a lot of schools just look bad.
Anybody else watching UConn football flail about? It pleases me greatly. 42 to 0, early 3rd. UCF
One quick note before we present the rankings: With Wichita State’s move to the American Athletic Conference, the Shockers have moved out of the mid-major club. We wish the Shockers well against Cincinnati, UConn, SMU, and more.
Pretty good game so far. Memphis returned the oepning kickoff for a touchdown and took a 17-3 lead at the end of the 1st quarter. Cincy responeded with 85 yard and 80 yard touchdown drives in the 2nd quarter to tie the game but Memhis got a late field goal to take a 20-17 lead at the half.
Cincy has already clinched the AAC East Division and a spot in the AAC Championship game. If Memphis wins today they will clinch the West Division spot in the AAC Championship game. If Memphis loses today they will have to see how Navy does tomorrow at Houston. A Memphis loss and a Navy win puts the Midshipmen in the AAC Championship game.
Memphis looks to me like they have the better athletes but Cincy isn't bad. Both team look well coached.
Cincy is playing a freshman quarterback making his 1st half. Not sure if that is due to an injury to their #1 guy or not.
With Memphis leading 27-24 with about 5:00 minutes to go Cincy knocked down a pass attempt at the line on a 3rd and 10 and were going to get the ball back. But a Cincy defensive back who had been blitzing threw an elbow at a Memphis lineman well after the play and was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct. The 15 yard penalty gave Memphis a 1st down and they drove for a game clinching touchdown to win the game 34-24. After the penalty Cincinnati looked totally deflated.
Bottom line though I think Memphis was the better team.
The two teams will meet again next Saturday back in the Liberty Bowl for the AAC Championship game..
Pretty entertaining game up until the total brain cramp by the Cincy defensive back.

Should we have a general college football thread in addition to this one or should we merge? I think some of the local HS and Juco success stories at the college level are enjoyable to discuss and credit.
