It can’t possibly be anyone else.
Legaux had an extremely up-and-down game to say the least. He was 19/42 (45%) and threw an interception that led to immediate Virginia Tech points. That’s not ideal from a BCS level quarterback but Munchie was getting rocked for most of the game. It didn’t seem like there was a throw that he wasn’t getting hit. That’s as much to the credit of Virginia Tech’s defense as it is on Butch Jones and Mike Bajakian for not adjusting and setting up plays with three-step drops. Unfortunately Cincinnati’s coaches continued to dial up passes that required five and seven-step drop and Munchie paid for it. Still he continued to power this offense despite get hit play after play.
And he made his most important throw of the day when Cincinnati needed it the most. That probably sealed the BOTW Award for Munchie. Throwing the 376 yards and three touchdowns he tossed earlier today didn’t hurt either. It was the most dominating performance from a UC quarterback since Zach Collaros last season when Cincinnati and South Florida got in their annual shootout. Overall, Munchie has his issues but he stepped up and won this game for the Bearcats. He should be praised and hopefully garnered the respect of UC fans nationwide for what he accomplished tonight.
