Cincinnati Bearcats vs Virginia Tech Hokies: Military Bowl Preview

The final Bearcat football game of 2014 sees a somewhat familiar foe in Virginia Tech. The Bearcats and Hokies have hooked up three times since January of 2009. Just like their overall series history, the teams have split. Tomorrow will the series splitter. The Military Bowl is a nice last Christmas present for the season. This should be a hell of a game. These teams are about as...

Cincinnati 72 Wagner 48

The first thought in my head immediately after watching the Bearcats lay waste to the Wagner Seahawks Tuesday night is this, Wagner is not good. I would have said sucks, but they are college kids and they are trying their best. They just aren’t good. That’s not a team that Cincinnati should be playing. This is a game that literally does nothing for the program. It wastes time...

Cincinnati Bearcats vs Wagner Seahawks Preview

Quick preview of the last garbage game, well at least in the non-conference variety, of the season. Wagner is by far the worst team Cincinnati will play this year. Their RPI is 316. You don’t want your RPI to be associated with Stone Cold Steve Austin. Wagner rates 291 on Ken Pom. That’s low. Wagner has not won in December. The best team Wagner has played this season is Maryland...

VCU 68 Cincinnati 47: Final Thoughts

It’s been a couple days and it’s very clear to say that there wasn’t, and hasn’t, been a lot of good that’s come from the VCU loss. The Bearcats were handed a very rare 20+ point beating at home. Circumstances or not, good teams don’t lose at home by 20+ points. Just out of an execution standpoint, this was one of the hardest Bearcat games to watch in a couple of years...

VCU Hammers Cincinnati

The Mick Cronin news seemed to weigh heavily on the Cincinnati Bearcats today. The Cats came out flat as a pancake, which they could absolutely not afford to do against a team like VCU. They paid for it in a 68-47 ass kicking. This game was pretty much over as soon as the Rams took the lead. They never relented. UC scored to make it 5-4 and that was as close as they would get the...

Cincinnati Bearcats vs VCU Rams Preview

The ringer for the Cincinnati Bearcats basketball team does not stop tomorrow. Things pick up a lot with the VCU Rams. The Rams are going to press, they are going to shoot 3s, they are going to foul, they are going to give you fits. That’s just who they are and what they do. Shaka Smart is kind of a good coach, his team plays hard. They don’t always play well. If we are being...

Cincinnati 71 San Diego St 62: 10 Things

Before we move on to tomorrow’s game against VCU, let’s take a quick rewind to Wednesday night and the Bearcats big win over San Diego State. I won’t dwell on the game too much, instead giving 10 thoughts. The importance of this win can not be understated. It’s going to be the win that keeps on giving all season long. San Diego State might not be world beaters. What are they...

If you listened to the podcast, check the top of the page for a link, Chris noted that the basketball schedule before the season started was dotted with ranked teams. Some were ravaged by injury (UConn), some were hit with tough suspension news (SMU), others simply underperformed (VCU). There is one ranked team left though, and that team comes into town tonight.

Bearcats Nab Three Over Exciting Recruiting Weekend

The final recruiting weekend before the December dead period is always extremely busy for coaches across the country as they try to squeeze in as many visits as possible before bowl preparations begin. It is even more bust if the staff is hosting junior college prospects as national signing day for those players is December 17th. JUCOs are primarily brought in to be an immediate solution...

Nebraska Cornhuskers 56 Cincinnati Bearcats 55

We’ve had a few days to bask in the aftermath of a very disappointing Cincinnati loss. Even a couple days later, the sting from the Nebraska game rings through. This was a game the Bearcats had plenty of opportunities to win. It was a game they had a 2 point lead at the line with 14 seconds remaining. If Jermaine Sanders makes that second free throw, maybe things don’t end up...

Bearcats Fall to Nebraska

In one of the most frustrating losses in recent years, Cincinnati lost to Nebraska 56-55 in double overtime. Yeah, double overtime. The shooting in this game was horrendous. Nebraska hit 32.7% from the field, Cincinnati 31.7%. It was awful. Here’s how regulation ended: Cincinnati turnover Awful 3 by Petteway, but an offensive rebound led to another horrible shot by Petteway that...

Jamaree Strickland To Transfer

UC threw out some Friday night news. The news was not really surprising. As the headline reads, center Jamaree Strickland is transferring. Strickland played 1 game in his UC career. He was suspended for “conduct unbecoming of a Bearcat.” Mick Cronin had this to say: “We wish Jamaree the best going forward.” This is not really a blow to the current iteration of the Bearcats...

Cincinnati Bearcats vs Nebraska Cornhuskers Preview

It’s funny how quickly things change in from the beginning of the season to the current day. The stretch Cincinnati is about to start against Nebraska, San Diego State and Virginia Commonwealth looked killer in November. Now that it’s about to start, it no longer looks so intimidating. Nebraska in particular has lost a lot of their luster from last season. The Cornhuskers are...
