I'll be surprised if the Bearcats do indeed beat the Bucks come September but I'll not be shocked if they pull this one out. There's just too much talent on this team that seems confident from recent successes. They'll likely be playing very loose with an added chip on their collective shoulders. Playing with an attitude, instilled by respectable coaches, these kids will be coming north seeking to right what they probably perceive as wrongs that have been inflicted upon them low these many, many years. Coach Fick will make sure to have them ready.
I like the Bucks chances at making the playoffs despite an early season loss to Cincinnati should it occur.
A 14-1 record for this team in 2019, with victories over Bitchagain, Satan, Dabo etal, while also celebrating their second championship in the last five years, just feels so right. This very possible scenario would suit me, and I'm guessing the rest of Buckeye nation, just fine.
So it is written...
