Bearcats Move One Step Closer to AAC Championship with Win over Temple

Cincinnati defeated Temple 14-6 today. That’s about the best thing you can say about the game. The defense once again shut down a bad offense. The defensive performance, ECU exempted, has been really good the last 6 weeks or so. You don’t have to give up 0 points every game, but not giving up touchdowns is pretty great. The defense has come a long way from being the not good...

Cincinnati 41 Connecticut 0: 10 Thoughts

The Bearcats shut out victory over Connecticut can not fully pass without a write up. I very much apologize for the delay in this post. It seemed like I wrote something about it. It really did. There was the tweetcap. To put a bow on this one, here are 10 thoughts from the dominating victory. This was the best defensive effort of the Tuberville era. UConn sucks and all that, but...

No more Bad News Bearcats

CINCINNATI -- Call it tough love on Tommy Tuberville's part. Coaches have to know how to push the buttons of players to get something out of them. Tuberville have been pushing everything he knows to get something -- anything -- out of a defense that has been one of the nation's worst this season. He's publicly called "The Bad News Bearcats." It all had little effect through the first...

Cincinnati 41 SMU 3: Grading the Bearcats

The Bearcats won in the best way they could on Saturday, a complete run-away laugher. SMU is legitimately the worst FBS team Cincinnati has played in terms of effort and talent in a couple of years. Say what you will about Miami, but at least they gave Cincinnati a fight the last two seasons despite the very long losing streak. The Mustangs are just awful all around. I don’t know...

Porous UC defense exposed in every way by Buckeyes

COLUMBUS -€“ Gunner Kiel completed 21 of 32 passes for 352 yard, four touchdowns and wasn't intercepted once Saturday night against Ohio State. And the Cincinnati Bearcats lost by 22 points. No amount of Kiel or the multitude of wide receivers the Bearcats have at their disposal will matter when you have a defense that gives up 710 yards of offense – 380 by ground, 330 by...

Bending Bearcats come up big at right time

CINCINNATI -- It would have been hard before Saturday night's 119th game between the Cincinnati Bearcats and Miami RedHawks to envision the scenario that was unfolding midway through the fourth quarter. It had been nine years since UC lost the Victory Bell to its rival, and this wasn't supposed to be the year that changed. Miami was owners of 19 losses in a row, including...

FSU has had better luck with 5-star recruits in recent years

Why did Florida State win the 2013 national title? Look no farther than the last three signing classes. Coach Jimbo Fisher landed the No. 1 signing class in 2011, bringing defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan, tailback James Wilder Jr. and safety (turned tailback) Karlos Williams to Tallahassee. The next year, Florida State added prep stars like quarterback Jameis Winston, defensive...

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...
