Cincinnati coach Butch Jones has complained about the team's slow starts, and they seem to be suffering another one as Toledo has jumped out to a 10-0 lead after the first 15 minutes.
The Rockets held Cincy to a 3 and out on their first drive, which Toledo was able to turn into a 43-yard field goal by Jeremiah Detmer. On Cincy's second drive, a pass by Munchie Legaux (no relation to Tyroil Smoochie-Wallace) went errant and landed right into Jermaine Robinson's lap, which he returned 75 yards for the score.
UC had a sudden surge of life when David Fluellan coughed up the ball deep in Rockets territory and the Bearcats recovered on the 5, but the review booth said Fluellan's back hit the turf before the ball came out. Rockets got out of the shadow on their own goalposts with a 13 yard run by Terrance Owens, and the Rockets currently sit on the Cincinnati 31 yard line when the 2nd quarter starts.
