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...

Tomorrow afternoon, Cincinnati goes on the road to Southern Methodist to play the terrible Mustangs. It is hard to muster any enthusiasm for this game, if we are being quite honest. I just don’t care about SMU football. In fact, I wasn’t even going to do a preview for this game, I was going to let the podcast be the preview. Instead, here is a truncated preview of the Bearcats...
First team All-American and second all time leading scorer in Cincinnati history Sean Kilpatrick has signed, will sign, with the Golden State Warriors. Killa was on the 76ers summer league team. His play must have turned some heads. It seems to be clear that he won’t make the actual roster though, because the season starts pretty soon. It looks like he’ll be some D-League depth...
The fourth edition of the Bearcats BlogCast is up for your approval. Chris Bains of Cincy on the Prowl and I can not be stopped when it comes to throwing out Bearcat related podcasts. If you want to catch the madness straight to your phones or tablets, I don’t blame you. You can find the podcast on iTunes. Please rate and review. Due to the demand of one of my friends, you can...

When I wrote about experience yesterday, it got me to wondering how Cincinnati coaches fared in their first two years at Cincinnati. Luckily such a thing exists like Sports Reference, which has records back to 1955, so we can find out exactly that.
Year 1: 1-6-2
Year 2: 4-5
Year 1: 3-7
Year 2: 2-9
Year 1: 3-6
Year 2: 5-4-1
There is a legitimate question to be asked if the Bearcats hit rock bottom during the 55-34 beat down in Miami. On the season, 7 games, the Louisville Cardinals have given up 422 yards on the ground. Cincinnati gave up 335 in four quarters against Miami. Cincinnati has given up over 1,000 yards on the ground the past 3 games. Around 60 teams haven’t given up 1,000 rush yards on...
Cincinnati was able to lock down a commitment from Louisiana guard Jacob Evans the other day. Evans is a 6’5, 200 pound guard from St Michael’s high school in Baton Rouge. Evans becomes the third 2015 commit in what has become a pretty good class, joining Justin Jenifer and Tre Scott. 247 ranks the Bearcats class 29th as of today. It should be noted quickly that as good as that...
Tommy Tuberville had a lot to say in his Tuesday press conference. Watch it here. He didn’t just talk about the Cats this year, the Miami game, he barely talked about SMU, he talked about the program and the direction it is headed. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know this season isn’t going well. No one thought the team would be 2-3 heading into the almost guaranteed...
Don’t have time to transcribe the press conference right now, but here is the video of Tommy Tuberville’s Tuesday press conference. My reaction to some key quotes will go up later. For now, be sad that he said UC and SMU were similar at all.
Ralph David Abernathy IV hasn’t played for the Bearcats since week 2 against Miami. Many people have been wondering about his status for the upcoming weeks, as well as his status for the rest of his Cincinnati career. We got some answers from an unlikely source.
Over the weekend, Abernathy’s younger brother Micah committed to Tennessee. In the article by the Atlanta Journal Constitution...
