How good is
We have to start with the quarterback position. Dustin Grutza was the story for the Bearcats offense, completing 21 of 28 passes for 296 yards and three touchdowns. Were you surprised by his performance against
No, I was not surprised by Grutza's performance vs. EKU. He started for two years before Ben Mauk arrived last year and he was Big East offensive player of the week last year when he started for Mauk against
( Miami ). Ohio
In order for a quarterback to put up those type of numbers he has to have some pretty good players at the skill positions. How good are receivers Marshwan Gilyard and Dominick Goodman?
UC has plenty of good receivers. The best two are Goodman and Marcus Barnett, who set a school record for touchdown receptions last year.
It appears that the Bearcats use two running backs much like the Sooners do. What can you tell us about Scott Johnson and John Goebel?
Scott Johnson is a reserve who doesn't play very often. He put up those numbers last week based on a long run near the end of the game. The starter is Jacob Ramsey, who started the last three games last year. Goebel shares the position. He was redshirted last year. It's hard to tell how good they are because they haven't played enough yet.
Defensive tackle Terrill Byrd was suspended for the
Eastern Kentuckygame. What is his status for this game?
Terrill Byrd will play vs.
scored seven touchdowns in their first seven possessions while debuting the new, fast paced no-huddle offense. If you’re Brian Kelly, how do you prepare to slow down the Sooners? Oklahoma
I have no idea how to slow down the
offense. That's Brian Kelly and defensive coordinator Joe Tresey's job. You'd have to ask them. Oklahoma
Bearcats Head Coach, Brian Kelly, equated playing
in football is like playing Duke or Oklahoma in basketball. How is North Carolina preparing to deal with the distractions that come with playing in front of 85,000 fans? Cincinnati
has played at Cincinnati and Ohio State . I doubt if playing at West Virginia will overwhelm them. Oklahoma
