Former Cincinnati Bengals’ All-Pro safety David Fulcher knew he was taking on a big task as a head coach starting the football program at Cincinnati Christian University.
He expected to take some lumps this first season, and he was right.
CCU is 0-6 coming into Saturday’s 1 p.m. matchup at Urbana University (1-4).
Fulcher’s team has been allowing an average of 50 points per game … in fact, CCU gave up 73 points to Reinhardt and 84 to Lindsey Wilson.
You can bet Fulcher – a Dick LeBeau protege – will focus on improving that defensive performance as the season progresses.
The U.S. victory in the Ryder Cup was exciting to watch last weekend, but the behavior of some fans toward the European players at Hazeltine in Minnesota was atrocious.
Insults were hurled toward some players, even in mid-swing.
Golf is supposed to be a civil, genteel sport, but some events are turning into rowdy displays of ugliness.
We might be seeing why Ken Zampese was passed over a couple of times when the Bengals’ offensive coordinator job was open before.
Zampese was finally promoted to OC from quarterback coach this year, and the Bengals’ offense is not doing well on third downs or in the red zone.
Maybe Zampese will improve with experience, but the Bengals’ hopes for a successful season will likely slip away if the play-calling doesn’t improve quickly.
