Bearcats Move Up to 17 in the Polls

The new college basketball polls are out and Cincinnati has made a big climb in both. The Bearcats rank 17 and 17. That's a 6 spot move on one and a 7 spot move on the other. I don't know how UC would move 7 spots after beating Rutgers and Seton Hall, but Marquette moved up a spot after losing to Louisville by 83 points yesterday. Polls are stupid. 

What is not stupid are Matt Norlander's best photos from January. It features President Ono getting his head shaved. It also features this picture

Credit for that goes to CBS. That picture is awesome. I didn't know Sergeant Doakes from Dexter attended games. That one band member at the top is not too impressed. He's seen better. The guy in the front row either looks discouraged or he is doing his best #MeanFace. I gotta say, when I first said Justin Jackson mean face last season, I had no idea that it would catch on. I think whoever was running the Go Bearcats twitter that night also used it and the rest was history. That's a lesson to all of you kids out there, say a lot of things and maybe one of them will catch on. 

Oh, here are the polls.
