The Bearcats Blog Top 30 Countdown: #8 Isaiah Pead

The next man on the Bearcats Blog countdown is the most recent entry. He's also the last player from the last 5 years or so. He's also the last football player on the list.

We all make our own decisions, and while I love...

#44 Cincinnati Bearcats: College Football 77 in 77

  For the Cincinnati Bearcats, it might be a step down this season. Okay it probably most likely will be. Especially since they have to replace playmakers in QB Zach Collaros and RB Isaiah Pead. This won’t be a Big East title type of team, and given where the program has been recently, 2012 could be a bit of a disappointment. They’ll probably still make a bowl though. 2011...
