They brought in offensive tackle Andre Smith and linebacker Kevin Minter to address this problem.
Good coaches don't grow on trees and you have to wonder how long can Cincinnati continue before suffering the inevitable decline that comes when an organization loses its best people? Expect the "Queen City Kitties" to experience a meltdown this fall.
