Cincinnati kept it going as they pushed the conference win streak to 3 with a huge win over Tulane. Gunner Kiel played one play, throwing an interception on the opening play. He was replaced by Munchie Legaux, who went 16-24 for 211 yards, 3 touchdowns and 1 INT. Legaux powered the offense pretty well in his return home to New Orleans.
The offense was fueled by the running attack...

There was the time the Bearcat stood in line with the basketball team.
Here’s the Bearcat from the 1993 NCAA tournament against North Carolina.
That time it waved a flag.
That time the Bearcat looked like a bad ass waving a flag and pointing.
This old drawing of the UC mascot had the Bearcat as an actual bear. As you may know, that’s not what a Bearcat looks like. At all...
Welcome to this post. That was a very clanky way to start things. Today’s topic are the Tulane Green Wave. To get more in depth about Friday night’s opponent, I sat down to talk to one of the guys from Fear the Wave. That’s a very solid read for all of your Tulane information. Look for them on twitter @FearTheWave and check out their site. I’ll be answering some questions...
The American media released the preseason AAC poll for the 2014-15 season. Cincinnati was predicted to finish 4th. The Bearcats are behind the National Champion Connecticut Huskies, SMU and Memphis. That’s really no surprise. UConn and SMU are thought of to be two top 30 or so teams this season. Memphis has the best returning front court in the league with Austin Nichols and Shaq...
The 6th episode of the Bearcats BlogCast is submitted for your approval. Chris Bains of Cincy on the Prowl and I discussed quite a bit surrounding UC athletics this week. Topics such as:
Gunner Kiel’s status for Tulane
If Kiel should play against the Green Wave
Chad Banschbach’s injury against South Florida
We broke down the USF game from many angles
We previewed the Bearcats...
A part of me feels like we’ve watched Cincinnati play the last two weeks and have essentially learned nothing. Another part of me feels like UC has genuinely gotten better the last two weeks. Yet another part of me thinks that who cares, nothing matters until East Carolina. That’s all the parts that are thinking right now. I’ll alert you if more do. The Bearcats cruised to...
Instead of celebrating UCs recent win against South Florida this past weekend, Bearcats fans have had to deal with a string of bad news thus far with Gunner Kiel re-injuring his ribs on Friday and the arrest of Marcus Tappan on Saturday night. The bad news for the Bearcats continued today when defensive back Joshua Norwood decommitted on Monday morning.
Norwood was committed to Cincinnati...
Friday night’s game with South Florida went pretty well for the most part. Gunner Kiel got knocked out, but Munchie Legaux stepped in and played well to lead the Bearcats to a huge 34-17 victory. Unfortunately, things turned for the worst for the program after the game. Sophomore Alex Tappan was arrested. Cincinnati.com has the story.
Marcus Tappan, a sophomore linebacker for the...
A couple of Bearcat notes on this beautiful Monday.
Tommy Tuberville has said that quarterback Gunner Kiel is expected to play on Friday night when the Bearcats travel to Tulane.
“I expect him to play,” Tuberville said of Kiel. “He’s still sore. He’s going to be like that the rest of the year.”
Gunner Kiel is a tough, tough football player. I’m not surprised in the...
The Warriors waived guard Aaron Craft, swingman Jason Kapono, guard Sean Kilpatrick, forward James Michael McAdoo and forward Mitchell Watt

The Cincinnati Bearcats look to get back over .500 for the first time since the fourth game of the season as they take on conference foe South Florida. South Florida is nothing like a rival to Cincinnati, even though the teams have played every year since 2003. What the Bulls have been, however, is a slight pain in the ass. Any time Cincinnati is down, they lose to South Florida...

It’s been a couple weeks since we have looked at where the Bearcats are projected to play come bowl season. A lot of people predicted Cincinnati to the Miami Beach Bowl a few weeks back. Maybe time and performance have changed things for the better.
Miami Beach Bowl
In what has possibly been the quietest fall in terms of the recruiting front, Coach Tommy Tuberville and staff are still hard at work trying to add the final pieces to what is already a strong recruting class. Arguably their top target is defensive end CeCe Jefferson of Baker County Senior High School in Glen Saint Mary, Florida. CeCe is a 5 star and a top 15 player in all the...
On our weekly podcast, Chris Bains, @cinbinbains, from Cincy on the Prowl and I sat down to talk to former Bearcat running back John Goebel. John was on Bearcat teams from 2006-’10. He had a lot of stories about his commitment to Cincinnati, playing for Mark Dantonio, the transition from Dantonio leaving and Brian Kelly becoming head coach, Brian Kelly leaving for Notre Dame (which...
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...
Tommy Tuberville announced today that quarterback Jarred Evans, who was arrested Saturday night/Sunday morning, would be indefinitely suspended. Take it away, Coach Tuberville:
“Right or wrong, football players, basketball players, athletes across the country are guilty until proven innocent, even in my eyes, because you’re in the wrong place at the wrong time,” Tuberville...
Bearcats kicker Andrew Gantz has earned the honor of AAC Special Teams Player of the Week. He’s the second Bearcat to win this honor, along with punter Sam Geraci. Gantz knocked in 3 field goals and a pair of extra points during the Bearcats romp over SMU. Bearcat quarterback Gunner Kiel was named to the honor roll as well. Kiel has racked up the honor roll mentions this season...
Bearcat quarterback Jarred Evans was arrested late Saturday night, early Sunday morning if you are a stickler. He has been charged with assault. This report is from WLWT. I’ll share the details.
According to court documents, Evans allegedly punched the victim Saturday night after UC’s 41-3 victory over Southern Methodist University.
The arresting officer said Evans’ victim...
