CINCINNATI RUMORS & GOSSIP

Cincinnati quarterback job wide open

One team that may be pretty surprising going into the 2016 season is the Cincinnati Bearcats as they could make some noise in the AAC. They have a good problem right now as any one of their three quarterbacks could win the starting job. Last year, the position was held down by Gunner Kiel and true freshman Hayden Moore. The latter filled when Kiel went down with a nasty head injury...

Cincinnati Gardens helped build up Xavier Basketball

They haven’t played a game there in 16 years. Yet the Cincinnati Gardens holds a special place in Xavier Basketball’s history. The building saw some of Xavier Basketball’s best years. Including the 1989-90 season, when the Musketeers first advanced to the Sweet 16.  Plus, beating the no.1 ranked Cincinnati Bearcats team in the 1999 Crosstown Shootout. During their years...

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...

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.

By Andrew Holleran Cincinnati’s men’s basketball team fell to Kentucky in the NCAA Tournament’s second 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.
