Apparently the ACC and Big East Merged

I love Fran Fraschilla. I think he’s great doing Big 12 games. I think he’s great calling other games. I like hearing him talk about weird international players that are “Two years away from being two years away.” He’s a good guy. That doesn’t explain why he tweeted this: Smartest thing ACC ever did was merge with Big East. Didn't get everyone but Louisville, Pitt, Notre...

Ashley Judd Apologizes on Behalf of UK Fans to Octavius Ellis

Select Kentucky ‘fans’ were incredibly awful to Octavius Ellis on twitter during and  following Saturday’s game. I didn’t touch on it because I was not going to make myself read the hatred and ignorance of people who claim to be fans. Real fans don’t go on twitter and rip on players. Let’s rewind that a step back, people with maturity and common decency don’t go on...

AAC News Roundup: March 24

With the season over, here is some of the AAC news that’s flying around the atmosphere. This is a little catch all for the things that don’t desere full posts on their own. At his radio show last night, Larry Davis covered the status of Deshaun Morman. LD said that he and Mick Cronin would meet with Morman and his status was still up in the air.

NCAA Tournament: Kentucky Wildcats 64 Cincinnati Bearcats 51

After a few days to ruminate about the Bearcats 64-51 loss to Kentucky, not a lot has changed. I’m still proud of how hard the Bearcats fought against the top team in the nation. I’m still impressed by the effort. I’m still discouraged that it didn’t work out. Cincinnati learned the same lesson that the 35 teams before them learned, you have to play 40 minutes to beat Kentucky...

Quick Thoughts About the Bearcats Loss to Kentucky

Today’s 64-51 loss to Kentucky sucks. There’s no other way to put it. Losing your final game of the season is always a downer. After this weekend, 16 teams will play on and Cincinnati won’t be one of them. The finality of it all stings. Only one team doesn’t feel that bitterness. The Bearcats ride came to a halt against the best team in the nation. Let me start this by saying...

NCAA Tournament Preview 8) Cincinnati Bearcats vs 1) Kentucky Wildcats

It’s here. The Bearcats get their chance against the dominant team in college basketball. They get their chance to make Cincinnati the 1 in 35-1.

The story of the season has been...

NCAA Tournament: 8) Cincinnati Bearcats 66 9) Purdue Boilermakers 65

The past couple of years of early NCAA tournament losses were ringing through my head last night. With Purdue up by 7 with 48 seconds left, it wasn’t hard to get sullen about a reality where Cincinnati went down in the first round three straight seasons. Putting together the tweetcap was very bittersweet. Collecting tweets about the end of the season is not something I really wanted...

Bearcats a Significant Underdog to Kentucky

As expected, the Cincinnati Bearcats are a giant underdog to the top seeded Kentucky Wildcats. Here are the numbers from Vegas Insider: The biggest dog UC was this year was 6 at SMU. The last time UC was an underdog was against Tulsa. That went pretty well. This is going to be the 6th straight game Kentucky is a double digit favorite. UK is 3-1-1. Kentucky hasn’t been a 17 point...
