CINCINNATI RUMORS & GOSSIP

Cincinnati and UCF Finally Face Each Other In The AAC

The American Athletic Conference, also known as “The American” or the AAC for short, owns a number of compelling subplots this season. Navy joins the league and will force opponents to defend the triple option. Memphis, under Justin Fuente, rose from the ashes last season but also embarrassed itself in the so-called “Miami Beach Brawl” against BYU. The Tigers are an intriguing...

Bloguin Top 50: No. 39 — Cincinnati

Cincinnati Bearcats 2014 Record: 9-4 (lost bowl game) 1 Burning Question – Can the Bearcats’ defense take them to the next level? The second biggest question with Cincinnati is, “Can Gunner Kiel stay healthy?” That’s a fine question, and a pretty important one when one peruses the Bearcats’ quarterback roster. However, the question so burning that it had to be the leader...

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...

The AAC’s Scheduling Problem and How UC is Stuck in the Middle

Last season, we watched the American Athletic Conference end in a three-way tie between the Memphis Tigers, Central Florida Knights, and the Cincinnati Bearcats, who each finished at 7-1 in the AAC and 9-3 in the regular season. The Bearcats were considered the least of those three teams because they didn’t have a win against the other two and did feature a loss against Memphis...

How the Bearcats Can Improve the AAC’s National Image

The youth of American Athletic Conference is such that it tends to be thought of in a very poor light. So much so, that as soon as the Big East folded into a basketball only conference of all the private schools of the former Big East, that this new conference lost it’s spot in the BCS format. The meaning behind that is basically saying that the AAC is the equivalent of the MAC...

Bearcats Future: Is Recruiting For “the Now”?

While most college football teams are looking at the “right now,” I’m going to go a different route and look at the future when it comes to Cincinnati’s roster, focusing on recent recruiting. 2015’s recruiting class, as I wrote in an earlier article, didn’t make it into the top 25 recruiting classes, according to ESPN. However, there’s still plenty to discuss inside...

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. Since that time, Syracuse, TCU, Louisville, and many others have followed suit. For a time, the Big 12 had 10 teams and the Big Ten had 12 teams. However, it was the former Big East conference took the biggest...

Cincinnati’s men’s basketball team fell to Kentucky in the NCAA Tournament’s Third Round Saturday afternoon, 64-51.  The Bearcats played valiantly, but were ultimately doomed by their inability to convert with consistency on the offensive end; they shot 31.7 percent from the field and went 2-of-14 from the 3-point line.
