The Bearcats shredded through the Eagles 83-50, overcoming a slow start in the first half. Farad Cobb scored a game...

Delayed Thoughts on Cincinnati 52 UCF 7

Central Florida gave the worst showing of any Cincinnati opponent this season. Worse than FCS school Alabama A&M. Worse than MAC cellar dweller Miami University. Worse than anyone UC has seemingly played in years. The Bearcats ran up 726 yards of offense and the only reason they didn’t put up more is because they didn’t try to during the fourth quarter. After a showing like...

Coaching Strategy: Al Golden’s decision to go for 7 against Cincinnati

It’s not the rarest of situations. It’s not mathematically hard to figure out on an immediate level. You’ve seen plenty of football games in which a team, trailing by 11 points inside the final five minutes of regulation, kicks a field goal to trim its deficit to eight points. Thursday night, Miami coach Al Golden did not kick the field goal in such a situation against the...

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.
