Cincy quarterback in hot water

Check out what Asmussen thinks here

CINCINNATI — A judge is warning Cincinnati sophomore quarterback Zach Collaros that he could be spending the postseason on the bench — in jail.

Hamilton County Municipal Court Judge Bernie Bochard told Collaros he must complete a court-ordered program on the dangers of underage drinking by Dec. 7. Or he could face up to 180 days in jail.

Collaros was 20 when cited for presenting a fake ID to try to get into a bar near the UC main campus. He pleaded guilty and was ordered to complete the program.

His attorney told the judge Thursday that Collaros made a mistake by not following up on his sentence. Bouchard told Collaros that blowing off the program isn't like blowing off a class.

Collaros, now 21, has excelled for the unbeaten, fifth-ranked Bearcats, who host Illinois on Nov. 27.
