Cincinnati Quarterback Munchie Legaux Says He’s Better Than Teddy Bridgewater

I’m not sure if it was intentional or not, but Cincinnati starting quarterback Munchie Legaux has certainly given Louisville some bulletin board material for Friday night’s match-up.

When asked by the media this afternoon if he saw any similarities between himself and Teddy Bridgewater, Legaux simply responded “I’m better.”

I’m sure every quarterback has to maintain a certain level of confidence in order to perform at a high level, but making a statement like that to the media is pretty ballsy. Maybe I’m biased, but I doubt there are many people who would argue that Muchie Legaux is a better quarterback than Teddy Bridgewater. Toledo wants no part of that argument, Munchie.

Legaux is a talented player for sure, but I’m assuming he hasn’t watched much game film on Louisville yet. Bridgewater has clearly been the best quarterback in the Big East this year, particularly in conference play.

Not that Teddy has anything to prove to anyone, but if he catches wind of Legaux’s comments you’ve got to think that he’ll come out with a little extra motivation on Friday night.

  1. Is this a joke????

  2. Where was Gerold Holliman and Andrew Johnson for the South Florida game?

    • Holliman – I think given how well the safety’s have plaid thus far, Reve included, it looks like the staff will redshirt him but will wait until the end of the year in case of an injury. If the talent is really what it is supposed to be – the idea of him after a year of JUCO and a redshirt year, coming in as a “Freshman” next year at 20 years old should be scary to the rest of the league. Again, if he is as good as advertised one would think he would be gone after his (RS)Sophomore season.

      Andrew “The President” Johnson – Seems like he did something that got himself benched for the game. He had a tweet following the game saying he feels like he let everyone down by not playing – but he was on special teams a couple times, so it definitely seems disciplinary
