Yep; the needle dropped considerably on the fan index meter until 51 seconds remained in the game Saturday, when it should have risen back to the top. We should remain the happiest fan base in America, not because this is the best football team in the country, but because performance has far exceeded expectations.

The clog before the bridge to get from the east to west side of Nippert was by far the worst I have ever experienced. It took a 15-20 minutes wait to get to the bridge because of people standing around in front of Stadium View Cafe and on the bridge itself butting down on the number of people who could cross at one time.

And the UC police, security etc did absolutely nothing to help move the traffic through.

Standing in the concourse doesn’t bother me, but those groups who obliviously congregate at choke points are douches.

I didn’t prepare for the rain because I didn’t think it was going to rain. My fault for listening to the Dayton forecast. That said, I was quite surprised how many could not endure the sprinkles. The weather was a disappointment but it wasn’t that bad.

Fans that are not on this message board are fine. Everyone here just likes to ***** and gripe.

Telling me it was "only" 3 hours, 50 minutes won't improve things much.

Going to a TV time out right after a several minute Booth Review is a real bummer for those in the stands, especially when rain is drizzling.

Is it more or are there more TV timeouts and longer ones to boot? It seems after every possession there is a 2:30 tv timeout. Ridiculous!

And yet we'd all like to see UC elevated to P5 so the Bearcats can get their paws on those network TV revenues. Hmmm... I wonder how the networks earn their money?
