Hope you cleared out a spot on your schedule for Thursday night at around 9:45, because Cincinnati is taking on Ohio State in the Sweet 16. The Bearcats made a tremendous defensive rally the last 2 minutes of a tie game. Dion Dixon, BEST FRIEND, stole an inbound pass and dunked home the go ahead bucket. Cash Wright crossed someone over and dropped a jumper in their face to put UC up 4. The Bearcats hit 16 of their last 17 free throws to seal it and advance. 

I don't know what to say besides HOLY ****, WE ARE GOING THE SWEET 16!!

It's so awesome. I love this team. I love you guys. This is amazing. The fact we are sitting here at 12:24 on Sunday night and I'm bouncing off the walls and laughing the last 15 minutes only locks that down. This is a special team. This is a special coaching staff. This is a special season. And it's not ******* over yet.

 



HUGS
