Kenner, in case you didn't know, was the quarterback behind Cincinnati's David-over-Goliath upset of Wisconsin on Sept. 18, 1999.
A week later, the Bearcats shocked Ohio State by building a 17-3 halftime lead -- largely due to Kenner's efforts. (OSU later won, 34-20.)
After hanging with major Big Ten powers, Cincy proceeded to fall apart, going 0-6 in the Conference USA. Unfortunately, that too was with Kenner at the helm.
If he can replicate his 1999 numbers, Kenner will break almost every quarterbacking record in Cincy's book -- attempts, completions, passing yards and total offense. The statistic his resume lacks, however, is the one he's most concerned with: wins.
4,561 passing yards and 27 touchdowns can't mask the fact that Kenner's two seasons as a 'Cat starer have produced only five wins and even worse, 17 losses. Kenner doesn't need to be reminded of Cincy's woes, and his 2000 agenda has a pointed goal: just win, baby.
"I don't care what we do, how we do it, who gets us there," Kenner said. "I just want to win."
With 15 starts under his belt, Kenner is on the verge of honing his raw athletic ability and natural instincts into a seasoned quarterbacking package for 2000. Meanwhile, coach Rick Minter is placing no limits on Kenner's potential.
"He can be as good as he wants to be," Minter said.
