I thought there were some interesting calls by the refs. The roughing the passer on UC #8 WHITE in the 1st half was a real head scratcher.

Wild game. Heartbreaking loss for OU who was clearly fired up out of the gates. The comeback shows me a lot about the UC team

UC receiving votes in the latest AP poll. That's amazing.

Glad the 'Cats are off to a 4-0 start, but let's be realistic.
This schedule they've played would make a marshmallow seem tough. Let's wait until late in the season to evaluate where they are.
Hopefully, they improve from where they are right now.

I agree about keeping expectations realistic, but there's nothing wrong with being excited about a 4-0 start(and matching your win total from last season in September), regardless of the schedule. People can see that the program is clearly headed in the right direction.

Correct. Getting off to a good start will do wonders for the psyche of the team. I think 7-4 is likely, 8-3 with a bit of luck. They should be in some kind of bowl game after game 11. A world apart from the recent past.

Don't care, they could be bowl eligible in a couple weeks. Definitely wasn't expecting that a month ago

realistic preseason expectations were 2-2 at this point, 1-3 being very possible. so "where they are" is WAY ahead of schedule on their program rebuild. as the 3rd youngest team in college football of course they will "improve from where they are right now".

i dont think anybody here has said anything unrealistic at all. however fans should absolutely be celebrating this season at this point. what kind of fanbase wouldnt be hyped about a 4-0 start? "lets wait"? just seems silly to wait until week 9 to decide to enjoy the season.

'Cats looked excellent today -- possibly better than at any point this year. Penalties need to get fixed, though. How many were there? 11-12 I think.

Beat Tulane at home next week and the Cats are bowl eligible.

Nice win for the Bearcats and they are getting really close to being in the top 25. They could remain undefeated for quite a while with the schedule being what it is. Great to see Fickell rebuilding the program so quickly!

Looking at the schedule, they should be able to take care of Tulane and ECU.

@Temple, @SMU, and Navy will be tough. 50/50 there.

USF and @UCF...Keeping the games within two scores would be a moral victory, I guess.

I'll predict 8-4. I'm sure many UC fans would take that if asked at the beginning of the season.

USF not in the 50/50?

It's a mental adjustment for me to put a UCF win into the storm the field category, I still remember them as a tech university but I guess they have attained that status.

Not sure what to expect from Tulane. They were expected to be real solid this season, but have looked horrendous at times. Then last week they pull an upset against memphis, being up 40-14 before calling off the dogs. they'll surely be riding that confidence and ready to give us their best shot

Homecoming is always awesome! more alumni coming back to campus and the student section will be drunker/wilder than normal. noon kickoffs tend to play a bit of a downer on attendance for the cats, and the weather forecast is iffy.

Hoping to reach bowl eligibility and also match last seasons conference win total!

Maybe it is, I thought it was just 6 wins.

Amazing. I doubt there was anyone who thought a 6-0 start was realistic.

What a season so far. I was hoping for 6 wins by the end of the year. Hats off to Coach Fick and the 3rd youngest team in college football.

Ordinarily I don't care much about rankings, but these guys deserve some recognition for what they've accomplished thus far -- both players and coaches.
Well done!

Good for UC and the program but now the real schedule starts and hopefully the Bearcats will be ready. A couple roadies followed by a service academy and then a couple against ranked opponents will really test this program and where they stand at this point. I am guessing 1-4 in that stretch is likely with 2-3 being a great result and showing real year over year improvement.
