Year 3 Of Tuberville Era Pivotal For Cincinnati

The Cincinnati Bearcats have gone 18-8 in two years under head coach Tommy Tuberville, during which the team has seen its fair share of ups and downs. After a solid start to his tenure in 2013, where the Bearcats went 9-4, Tuberville and his team endured a bit of a rough patch this past season. Despite entering 2014 as the favorite to win the AAC title, Cincinnati came stumbling...

Offseason To-Do List: Cincinnati Bearcats

With 2014 in the books as a 9-4, co-AAC champion season for the Cincinnati Bearcats, it’s easy to view 2015 with some optimism for the program. The ‘Cats are returning every piece of the 13th best passing attack in the FBS, and they will return to Clifton to play their home games in a renovated Nippert Stadium. However, success in 2014 doesn’t guarantee the same in 2015, but...

Cincinnati Bearcats’ 2014 Season Report Card

Despite grabbing a share of the AAC championship, something they were widely expected to do heading into the season, 2014 is better categorized as a season of missed opportunities for the Cincinnati Bearcats. Tommy Tuberville’s second campaign as head coach resulted in the same 9-4 record, the same apparent acceptance of mediocrity, and the same failure on the big stage as his...

Cincinnati Bearcats Chris Moore Hit With Excessive Celebration Penalty For Saluting During the Military Bowl

Usually the calls that the refs make are good ones and make sense. If we can't see the penalty during play we can usually see it during a replay. However, there are some penalties called that are beyond stupid. They are so bad that you have to wonder what game they are watching and what rule book they are using.One such call was made during the Military Bowl on Cincinnati Bearcats...

Bearcats eying 10th win in Military Bowl

Tommy Tuberville's first bowl game with the Cincinnati Bearcats was forgettable. The Bearcats entered last year's Belk Bowl in Charlotte against a 6-6 team from the Atlantic Coast Conference with a 9-3 record. UC lost to North Carolina 39-17. UNC scored defensively with a safety. It scored on special teams twice on a punt return and a kickoff return. The Tar Heels also took the conventional...

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...

Report: Big 12 met with Cincinnati about expansion

Would a team from the Big 12 make it to the College Football Playoff if the conference had a championship game to decide its champion? It’s a question that people have asked ever since the four Playoff teams were announced yesterday, and something that committee chairman Jeff Long suggested could have helped the conference. Long on Big 12: “We were presented with co champions...

Unlikely turnaround complete for Bearcats

CINCINNATI -- Talk of winning a conference championship was preposterous for the University of Cincinnati football team back in mid-October. Three straight losses, three straight blowouts in which the defense allowed nearly 2,000 yards and 146 points, turned any title thoughts to just trying to play respectable football. The Bearcats have earned some respect seven games later. It...

Cincinnati 14 Temple 6: Grading the Bearcats

I don’t know why my football reviews have turned into a Wednesday feature, but they have so let’s deal with it. The last two weeks have offered games that have not been extremely interesting. Cincinnati blew the doors off of UConn. The Bearcats put this game against Temple in the grinder for the 14-6 victory. UC used a near 7 minute drive the last 7 minutes of the game to run...

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...

Moore doing whatever Bearcats need him to

CINCINNATI -- Covering wide receivers wasn't what Rod Moore thought he'd be doing when he signed to play football for the University of Cincinnati. In two seasons at East Mississippi Community College Moore had rushed for 2,205 yards and 18 touchdowns. When he got to UC before last season he was in an open competition to replace George Winn as the main running back under then-first...

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...

Previewing UConn and Eastern Illinois

This weekend offers two of the least exciting games on the Bearcat schedule this entire year. Tomorrow the Bearcats football team plays Connecticut. On Sunday afternoon, my birthday (expecting a shout out during the telecast Tom and Terry), the basketball team takes on the worst opponent they’ll play all year in Eastern Illinois.

American title in sight for Bearcats

CINCINNATI -€“ Tommy Tuberville knows what could be for his football team over the next three weeks. The University of Cincinnati head coach dipped his big toe into the waters of looking ahead, but that's as far as he was willing to go Tuesday when it came to talk of the program winning at least a share of its fifth conference championship in the last seven seasons and its first...

Kiel and Gantz – Americans of the Week

Both players have won this award numerous times. Gantz especially has racked them up lately. Here’s the full release from the American.

Cincinnati 54 East Carolina 46: Grading the Bearcats

Normally I would start off with a little bit of an overview on the game, but how can the opening subject be anything but the absolutely insane decision by the Bearcats brass to run the mother flipping option on 4th and 2? This play was an all around disaster. From burning a timeout because Gunner Kiel didn’t run it originally. From Gunner Kiel running the option period. From Gunner...

5 Biggest Takeaways: Despite Mistakes, Cincinnati Beats East Carolina

Cincinnati (6-3, 4-1 AAC) looked both dominant and hapless throughout this game, but despite its best efforts to lose, UC atoned for its miscues and held on to beat ECU (6-3, 3-2 AAC) 54-46. I’m not really sure if the Bearcats answered questions and doubts or provided more about themselves going forward, but this win is no less pivotal regardless. Here are five things that we learned...

Mental Mistakes and Poor Defense Leads to ECU’s Demise

What a finish. If you missed the back-and-forth battle between East Carolina and Cincinnati, then you either hate football. And puppies. That was by far one of the most exciting finishes that I have seen in my 24 years of life. Photo used courtesy of newsobserver.com. It may have not been the type of game that would get the attention of the likes of the SEC or ACC nationally, but...

Gantz kick gets Tuberville, UC out of hole

CINCINNATI -- Tommy Tuberville rolled the dice Thursday night and he lost. Well, he should have lost. If not for the right foot of redshirt freshman kicker Andrew Gantz, Tuberville and the Cincinnati Bearcats would've lost. Gantz drilled a career-long 47-yard field goal with 15 seconds left to give UC a 48-46 lead in an eventual 54-46 victory against East Carolina at frigid Paul...
