Sunday reading

OK ... So my Bearcats didn't put on a very strong performance yesterday.

Sheesh, if they would have played as well the rest of the game as they did in the fourth quarter, they would have been golden ...

That fourth quarter was going so well, I was having visions of those "Cardiac 'Cats" making another legendary comeback ... Then -- don't even get me started on that botched call after the onside kick.

So now they've lost four straight championship games. Never mind the fact they've been there four straight years (on top of winning two straight in '98 and '99).

Bring on the awkward comparisons to the Buffalo Bills.
