The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame Tip-Off is just one of the many early season tournaments and at least two big name teams will be in attendance for the event. The field was released with the 2015 national champion...

Cincinnati is the most uncomfortable big-ticket program in the country

The city of Cincinnati is uncomfortable enough in the realm of professional sports. The Reds are in rebuilding mode, and the Bengals… well, they’re the Bengals. This discomfort extends to the collegiate ranks. Let’s be clear at the outset: An uncomfortable situation is not equivalent to a rock-bottom situation. Discomfort is not purely a reflection of a lack of quality. As...

Cincinnati Can’t Beat Buzzer With Dunk, Loses To St. Joseph’s (Video)

The final game of the NCAA Tournament’s first round ended in complete and utter heartbreak for the No. 9 seed Cincinnati Bearcats. Cincy trailed No. 8 St. Joseph’s by two with mere seconds remaining, and Octavius Ellis had the ball in his hands with a chance to send the game to overtime. Ellis had a clear look at the rim after receiving a pass in the paint, but rather than laying...

Video: St. Joe’s Outlasts Cincinnati After Final Basket Ruled Late

What an end to a crazy opening round of the 2016 NCAA Tournament. Just minutes after Northern Iowa stunned Texas on a half-court buzzer-beater, Saint Joseph’s and Cincinnati gave us one for the ages. This one was a little more controversial, however. The Hawks, trailing 76-75, saw senior forward Isaiah Miles nail an absolutely huge three-pointer to take a two-point lead with less...

James “Flight” White Reflects On March Madness, Future Hendrix and Big Ass Fur Coats

Once upon a time the Cincinnati Bearcats were the scariest team in America. One player from that era of dominance was James “Flight” White. The high-flying swingman from the Washington, D.C. area spent three years at the University of Cincinnati after transferring from the University of Florida. Known for his abilities to dunk with grace, White was a good all-around player throughout...

Oklahoma president supports Cincinnati joining Big 12

Memphis overcomes bad officiating, beats Cincinnati

The Memphis Tigers have given up a combined total of 87 points in their last two games. The Memphis Tigers are 2-0 in their last two games. Coach Justin Fuente’s team, which won the 2014 Miami Beach Bowl by a 55-48 score over BYU, is picking up where it left off last December. This isn’t a perfect team. It’s frankly a half-a-loaf team. Yet, it is now winning consistently...

Temple beats Cincinnati, earns respect it deserves

Temple got absolutely zero credit for pummeling Penn State last week. In fact, the Owls received so little recognition for a dominant defense performance (10 sacks, 52 yards allowed over the final three quarters), that it entered Nippert Stadium as a 7-point underdog to preseason conference favorite Cincinnati on Saturday night. Rather than complain about it in the media (see: Bielema...

Remember when the Cincinnati Bearcats were the scariest team in America?

By Eddie Maisonet When you walk into Fifth Third Arena on the University of Cincinnati campus, you quickly notice the championship banners from 1961 and 1962, the listing of Bearcat All-Americans, and most notably the three retired uniforms hanging up on the wall.

Can the Cincinnati Bearcats Make the 2015 College Football Playoff?

Beginning last year, the NCAA changed the look of college football by ending the season with a four-team playoff, rather than the Bowl Championship Series it had used for roughly 15 years. Every team dreams of being one of those four finalists, which would give them a chance to walk away with a National Championship at the end of the season. Based on the way last season went, it...

Conference Realignment: Is Cincinnati Next?

My how college football has changed in these last five years. Teams like Nebraska, Colorado, and Utah began the transformation as the first teams to try conference realignment.
