Fickell’s Bearcats just exploded from 4-8 to 11-2. What happens if the offense figures things out?

RE: Luke Fickell’s Cincinnati rebuild is well ahead of schedule
Good read. I truly believe line play on both sides of the ball are the biggest driver of success or failure in college football. We have significant holes to plug on both sides. We will see early in our schedule how well we retooled. I just wish we had a tuneup game like UConn early before we hit UCLA and OSU. Hopefully our summer work is enough to create the continuity we will need on the OL and DL.

I was a bit dismayed that they only gave us a 13% chance to win at O$U.

Then I saw that they only gave us an 80% chance of beating Miami U.

Given that our chances of beating Miami are 99.9%, I decided that their percentages weren't very accurate.

Miami has more talent than you think. They most certainly will be improved.

So add 19.9% to their percentages and that will give you the accurate chance to win. I'll take a 42.9% chance to beat OSU.

I think that would still only be 32.9% but I get your point

Just like last year, take them one game at a time. Regardless of wins and losses in year 3, he and the staff have shown enough for me to earn my fan respect. He's clearly got things going in the right direction. He's been more than a pleasant surprise as a head coach.

Sorry - I was thinking on a 110% scale, like every athlete out there.

Quote:If you’re looking for signs that Cincinnati can climb higher in 2019, your biggest source of encouragement has to be that the offense still has a lot of room to rise.

Quote:Fickell and offensive coordinator Mike Denbrock want to run the hell out of the ball — here’s your reminder that Fickell served for nine years under Jim Tressel and for five under Urban Meyer — and they’ll almost have to, to get every deserving player some touches.

Quote:this is one of the best RB corps in the country, one that is young enough to still have another gear or two of development to uncover.

The offense will rise as Ridder rises. Teams will scheme to limit our run game and the more we can pass the ball the more dynamic our attack will become. Ridder's ability to run is also an "X" factor but I hope that is more when things break down in the pocket as opposed to called plays. His health is paramount and we have exceptional depth in the Four Horseman of the Bearcatocalypse.

Give me a good percent chance to beat UCLA. Then we can start looking ahead.
