I don't even know what to say about the 27-24 Cincinnati victory over Virginia Tech. The Bearcats were losing after a demoralizing TD pass to the one guy on Virginia Tech that I taunted Hokie Guru about on twitter. Munchie Legaux saved the day. With about 8 minutes to go, Legaux hit Ralph David Abernathy IV, who was wiiiiiiide smokin open, for a 75 yard TD to put UC in front. After the Hokies scored, Legaux ran for a crucial first down, hit Travis Kelce and Anthony McClung for nice gains and then. Then Munchie hit Damon Julian for a 39 yard TD pass that brought memories of Pike to Binns to the forefront of every Bearcat fan. I don't know what to say about it, so here is a gif. 




Munchie Legaux was only 17-42. That is pretty god awful on it's head. What matters is that Munchie Legaux was 4-9 the last 3 UC possessions for 144 yards and 2 TDs. UC needed to be led to victory. Munchie Legaux just led the Cincinnati Bearcats to their biggest road win in ages. Munchie Legaux is our quarterback. I believe in Munchie. 

 

I don't even know what to say. Damon Julian, awesome! Munchie, awesome! Defense, awesome for a half! Play Calling, got better! Drew Frey got hurt and I hope he gets better. The officials were terrible at spotting the ball. Damon Julian looked to clearly be down at the 1. The announcers didn't even notice that until the 15th replay. But it's not about them. It's about us. Cincinnati won. If you aren't happy, you are a weird person and why are you reading this blog? This calls for Kenyon gif.
