Random thought before Cincy surely leapfrogs Texas to #2 in the BCS rankings tonight

I think we can all agree that after yesterday’s games, there is no question that Cincinnati wil leapfrog Texas to the #2 spot in the BCS rankings. We both beat our opponents by one point on some kind of kick through the uprights (them with a FG, us with a PAT) in the waning moments of our respective games. However, the team we played was ranked higher (#15 for Pitt vs. #22 for Nebraska). Also, Pitt is coached by a guy who used to coach in the NFL, so you know he really knows football. He’s like a ringer!

Thus, we’re going to Pasadena, people! It’s a mere formality at this point, but the BCS rankings will come out at 8 p.m. tonight (Eastern Time – not Cincinnati time of course because the BCS is against us!) to officially establish that it’s Cincy vs. Bama in the title game on Jan. 7. I hope we beat Nick Saban – he seems like a really sleazy guy!

Anyway, here is my random thought: Did anyone ever notice how the Cincinnati logo (the “C” with the claw thingy stuff on top) not only looks like the paw of the legendary beast known as the Bearcat – but also a crown? Is this on purpose because our magnificent city is known as the “Queen City”? Or is it pure happenstance? I have wondered about this since even before I started this unofficial Cincinnati Bearcats football blog back in 1993.

I’ll leave you to chew on that while I go book my tickets to Southern California for next month using one of those discount travel sites. Have you ever used those things? They are far and away my favorite thing about the Internet!
