Memphis 41 Cincinnati 14: Grading the Bearcats

2014 Bearcat Season Countdown: 18 Days – The Receivers

Welcome back to the Bearcats Blog Bearcat season countdown. Today the focus is on the wide receivers. All of the wide receivers. One of the disadvantages of being one man who runs the entire website is that if I’m not around and don’t write in advance, things don’t get posted. That’s 100% my fault. To make up for not throwing in countdown posts in 5 days, the last number...

Steelers’ 2014 Training Camp Battle Report: Quarterbacks

I’m just going to go ahead and get this out of the way; Ben Roethlisberger will be the starting quarterback and Bruce Gradkowski will be the back-up for the 2014 NFL season. Now that we have that out of the way, let’s discuss the all important third quarterback position. The Steelers will have just two other quarterbacks in camp unless something strange happens between now and...

Healthy Kay shows off at UC pro day

CINCINNATI -- Brendon Kay hasn't felt this good in forever. It's easy to tell spending the last couple of months in South Florida has been good for the former Cincinnati Bearcat quarterback. There's a definition to his muscles and a definition to his smile. Kay was hurting when UC started preseason practices last July and he never got any better. He still played in all 13 games,...

The Replacements: the American Athletic Conference Quarterback Battles

Picture from Blake Bortles Facebook page It seems like this year there is an epic clearout at the quarterback position throughout the FBS, with seniors graduating and juniors (and sophomores) declaring. Not just any old quarterback either – multi-year starters who have been the face of their franchise. So, who’s in the battle for the thankless job of replacing these stars? ...

North Carolina 39 Cincinnati 17

The first quarter of the 2013 Belk Bowl drew many comparisons to the 2012 Belk Bowl. That's the only thing they had in common.

What is North Carolina's Ryan Switzer Going to do for an Encore?

Let's be real here folks. The Cincinnati Bearcats were never in the Belk Bowl. North Carolina had these guys beat from the start; maybe not the start, but right about the time Brendon Kay tackled Kareem Martin for a safety in the first quarter I thought this one had the potential to get ugly. When T.J. Logan returned the ensuing kick 78-yards for a touchdown it was pretty darn close...

Cincinnati falls to N. Carolina 39-17 in Belk Bowl

Cincinnati coach Tommy Tuberville knew it was going to be a tough task protecting quarterback Brendon Kay with both starting guards sitting out with injuries. The problem was he couldn't do much about it. ''They knew we were missing some starters on the offensive line, and they threw the kitchen sink at us,'' Tuberville said. ''They twisted, they did all kinds of things up front...

Belk Bowl Beatdown for Bearcats

Cincinnati turned in their worst performance of the season against North Carolina and paid for it with a 39-17 beat down. UC fell down 16-0 due to a couple of special teams mishaps, a hole from which they couldn't recover. The game was never close after that. It was really disappointing. It was a disappointing capper on what turned out to be a disappointing season the more I think...

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Tommy Tuberville and Cincinnati are back in the Belk Bowl -- and this time he'll actually get to coach the Bearcats. Tuberville was hired on Dec. 8, 2012, by the Bearcats, but didn't coach in last year's Belk Bowl. Instead, Steve Stripling served as the interim coach after Butch Jones resigned weeks before to take a job at Tennessee. However, Tuberville was...

Now each has a chance to end the year...

The margin between Louisville and Cincinnati is not very big. The teams are incredibly similar in terms of style and talent. There isn't a lot that separates them.
