Virginia and LSU Receivers Transfer to Cincinnati

Cincinnati has been a hotbed for transfers the last few years. From the likes of Mekale McKay, Jeff Luc and Gunner Kiel (I’m sure there are others), UC has been a great place for guys to make a name for themselves and this week two other big name players will be transferring to the team in Clifton. Receiver Avery Peterson is leaving LSU for UC. The former 4-star recruit is the...

Tommy Tuberville’s Cincinnati football program will have a new feeling this season, after completed renovations to Nippert Stadium will have the team playing in an actual home stadium on campus. Home games will actually feel like home games for the first time in his third year as head coach. That could only be good news for a program that, despite having to play their 2014 home...

Seven 'gang of five' conferences Heisman Trophy candidates

Earlier this week, we provided a list of Heisman Trophy candidates for the SEC and Pac-12. But what about the “Gang of Five” conferences? Is there anyone from outside the Power 5 leagues that has a chance at winning college football’s highest honor? It’s certainly possible. Sure, the “Big Boy” conferences get all of the press, but it wouldn’t be unprecedented...

Virginia Tech Football: Experience on defense

Although the Virginia Tech football team finished the 2014 season with a 7-6 record, considered disappointing by many standards in Blacksburg, the Hokies did end the year on a high note with a 33-17 victory over the Cincinnati Bearcats in the Military Bowl. During the game, the Virginia Tech defense held quarterback Gunner Kiel and the Cincinnati offense in-check as Kiel was intercepted...

LSU WR Peterson joins would-be teammate Kiel at Cincinnati

Cincinnati football is apparently now the official home of those who “don’t have enough chest” to play at LSU. Wide receiver Avery Peterson, the younger brother of Patrick, is headed to play for the Bearcats after playing only one game for the Tigers during his redshirt freshman season. When he’s there he’ll join quarterback Gunner Kiel, who was nearly one of his teammates...

Gunner Kiel and Andrew Gantz Appear on Watch Lists

It’s early July, which means one thing for college football: watch lists. This week has seen various awards start leaking out the names of players who are being watched. I actually don’t know what the point of a watch list is, I guess it’s to make people remember that the award exists. If that’s the case, good job awards. A couple of Bearcats have been named to various award...

Cincinnati Bearcats 2014 Record: 9-4 (lost bowl game) 1 Burning Question – Can the Bearcats’ defense take them to the next level? The second biggest question with Cincinnati is, “Can Gunner Kiel stay healthy?” That’s a fine question, and a pretty important one when one peruses the Bearcats’ quarterback roster.

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...

How Much Does Losing RDA Hurt the ‘Cats?

We spend a lot of time, in talking about the Cincinnati Bearcats, mentioning this potent and high-powered passing attack led by Gunner Kiel. For once, it’s time to give some love to the running game and the backs that fuel it. However, this is less about the current backs and more about the loss of another. For two years, we got to see and enjoy the explosiveness of Ralph David...

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. Cincinnati is certainly no exception. However, what if I was to tell you that I don’t think that the most important returning player to the ‘Cats this season is Gunner Kiel? I’m sure many people...

Gunner Kiel as a 2016 NFL Draft Prospect

With the 2015 NFL Draft in the books, I’d love to be spending all this time talking about the many players out of Cincinnati taken in the draft and their bright futures with the teams that decided to take them. I’d like to, but I can’t seeing as for the second straight year, the Bearcats put up a goose egg, nada, zero when it comes to players taken. So, sadly, there isn’t...

The Backup QB is Critical for Cincinnati in 2015

Cincinnati quarterback Hayden Moore probably doesn’t realize that he is one of the most important players on the team, even after his striking performance in the Bearcats spring football game last Saturday.  Spring football games are typically not in the must-see entertainment category, unless, maybe, your favorite team is the one playing itself among the pollen.
