Bearcats got love in Weekly Recap
The Big win over SMU got Cincy some props in the CFBS weekly recap. This defense is the best in the conference, this could be the year...

Yep, i suspect we will get more chatter Saturday given we have the noon game on Espn coming out of Gameday. Hopefully those guys roast Corso for picking Smu last week.

RE: Bearcats got love in Weekly Recap
I can't stand Corso. He's so washed up and old and suffering from early signs of dementia. Why they hang on to him is beyond me. I guess it's like keeping an old refrigerator magnet that you don't really notice enough to get rid of it.

I used to like Corso, but he makes me sad now. He’s lost his mental edge.

Well, understandably. What is he? 85? More?

I get the idea that he was a bit goofy even when he was younger.

In 1976, he was in his 4th season coaching Indiana. They scored a touchdown in the 2nd quarter to take a 7-6 lead against Ohio State. Corso called a timeout and had the whole team pose for a picture with the scoreboard in the background, because it was the first time in 25 years that Indiana was beating Ohio State.

Ohio State won the game 47-7.

RE: Bearcats got love in Weekly Recap
I like Corso on TV. He's got a TV personality. He wasn't a very good coach. I bet he'd agree he's a better TV analyst/personality than he was a coach. He's getting older but I'm glad there's still a place for him on Gameday. Especially if this keeps happening:

One thing I remember about Corso. He gave the definitive warning about giving up a good G5 job for a P5 job (before G5 and P5 was a thing.) He said that the worst mistake he made in his career was leaving LVille for Indiana. He know how to win in Louisville. He couldn't recruit to make it happen at Indiana.

The bigger job ain't always better. (Hear that Butch?)

And he followed it up with a list of other coaches who made the same mistake. And it makes a point that I can't remember any of those names.

And in those days, he probably got a $25,000.00 raise going from Louisville to IU.

That one always stuck with me. I make less money in my job than I could in other jobs, but why? I have a roof, food, and I’m happy. You can’t beat that.

I was happy the day Butch Left, and I haven't missed him sense.

And factor in do you want to live in Cincinnati or East Lansing. Most anyplace or Lubbock or Ames or Starkville?

I suppose one can live well in Ames on $4 million a year, and spend time at a second and third home in the offseason. But I totally agree with your point. Cincinnati is not only a terrific metro area, it also appears to be an almost perfect fit for the Fickell family given their Ohio roots, relatively close proximity to the extended family, and excellent educational opportunities for the kids. And the pay ain't bad here either these days.

I love the story about the time he was coaching Indiana against Ohio State. Indiana scored first and had a 7-0 lead. Corso called timeout so the team could have their picture taken with the scoreboard in the background showing them ahead.

I've mentioned here before but Kelvin Sampson also used that exact line as to why he's still coaching at Houston and not back in the NBA.

“Nothing forces you to take an inventory of your life than when someone gives you an opportunity to change jobs,” Sampson says. “That forces you to look, to find out what’s important to you. I had done that four times..... one thing I learned over the years, with all the scars I have and all the experiences that shape you as a person, is the indelible thought in my mind going through that was, don’t mess with happy,” he says. “I’m happy.”"

A really good read on our rival coach for those interested. Some coaches think differently and I think Fickell is the same way.. at least until his kids are older.

Yep. It's really hard to beat Cincinnati for quality of living.

We've moved twice in the last 5 years and we like where we're at now. Last year I asked my wife if she would want to move again for a 50% pay raise at a job with similar expectations (because I think it's a realistic option in the next couple years). She said no.

So I asked, if my salary was doubled, is there anyplace you'd want to move? She thought about it and said, "well maybe if we move back to Cincinnati. Nowhere else though."

Happy family, happy life.
