None of his Cincinnati teams beat an opponent that finished higher than 15th or with fewer than 3 losses. Here is how he fared vs. teams in the final AP top 25, plus his two losses to teams that didn't play in bowls:

2007
6. WEST VIRGINIA (11-2) -- L 23-28
25. OREGON STATE (9-4) -- W 34-3
NR. LOUISVILLE (6-6) -- L 24-28
NR. at Pittsburgh (5-7) -- L 17-24

2008
5. at Oklahoma (12-2) -- L 26-52
15. Virginia Tech (Orange Bowl) (10-4) -- L 7-20
23. at West Virginia (9-4) -- W 26-23

2009
15. at Pittsburgh (10-3) -- W 45-44
25. WEST VIRGINIA (9-4) -- W 24-21
(Interim coach handled the 2010 Sugar Bowl loss to No. 3 Florida (13-1), 51-24.)
