CINCINNATI RUMORS & GOSSIP

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.

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.

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...

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.
