Three from Cincinnati invited to Senior Bowl

Senior Bowl invitations continue to roll in, and three members of the Big East champion Cincinnati Bearcats will be taking part in the showcase game in Mobile, Ala.

Quarterback Tony Pike, receiver Mardy Gilyard and long-snapper Mike Windt have all been invited from Cincinnati. It's no surprise to hear about Pike and Gilyard, both of whom are intriguing NFL prospects who had prosperous careers.

But how neat is it to see Windt get some recognition? Long-snappers only get noticed when they mess up, and it's a tribute to Windt that you never heard his name in three years while he was snapping for a Ray Guy Award semifinalist (Kevin Huber) and a Lou Groza Award semifinalist (Jake Rogers). That's because he did his job flawlessly, and he's going to the Senior Bowl as a result.
