Hey everyone its Ala81 here with your update on the #18 ranked USF Bulls. The ranking is where we’ll start this post. We are undefeated and getting absolutely no love in the polls. We have only played 3 teams this year that don’t have a winning record, two of our wins are against teams where that is their only loss and one was against a still ranked and very good Kansas team. Overall, my opponents are 8 games over .500. Now not to downgrade the play of my competitors in this Dynasty, but DTownsend’s opponents are 6 games under .500, and Ja514’s opponents are 11 games under .500; and both are ranked above me. What do I have to do to move up the polls?? Ok now that that’s out of the system, this week we head up to Ohio to face off against a resurgent Cincinnati Bearcats team, who after losing their opening two have put together 4 wins in a row (none against a team with a winning record), oh and by the way Corso and Herbstreit both pick the Bearcats to win at home. See what I mean, no respect. I think I’m going to change the team name from Bulls to Rodney Dangerfields.
Okay, I don’t usually do in game updates, but the favored Bearcats are losing 21-0 to my underdog Bulls, in the first quarter, as we’ve held them to 31 yards of total offense. First play of the second quarter I intercept the ball for a td, 28-0. Well, its over now and I gotta say things went pretty well. We won 49-14. The defense had the game I’ve been waiting for them to have by only giving up one touchdown, the other came off a fumble on a punt return that they returned for a td. Great game by everyone, we set some school records this game so I hope the voters take a good look at us now.
Matt Grothe, QB: 17-19 for 371 yards, 2 tds, 1 int, and thats a school record for passing yards in a game. He also ran 10 times for 36 yards and 2 tds. Great game by him overall.
Mike Ford, RB: 6 rushes for 110 yards and 2 tds, thats the game I’ve been wanting from him on the ground. He also caught 7 passes for 205 yards and 2 tds. That set school records for both receiving yards in a game and receiving yards for the season. Great way to get some Heisman attention also.
Carlton Mitchell, WR: 5 catches for 114 yards, another solid day from the Sophomore.
Defense: This was the game I’ve been waiting for!! 12 tackles for loss, 3 sacks, 3 interceptions, and an overall dominating performance giving up only 163 total yards and keeping their #1 status against the run only surrendering 20 yards on 18 carries.
Oh, one more thing, I’m going to try and figure out how to post a link here and if I do you’ll get to see Matt Grothe punish a safety from Cincinnati. http://www.easportsworld.com/en_US/video/1979764
