The Most Important Returning Bearcat

As many people assume, the most important player on the football field is the quarterback. Seemingly all the top teams have somewhere between good and great quarterbacks at their helm.

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.

WATCH: Kentucky Cheerleader Grabs Cincinnati’s Octavius Ellis When He Tries to Get Up

Cheerleaders are supposed to entertain the crown and help get the fans in the game when necessary. That is how they are intended to affect the game; by rallying the fans.
