Liberty Bowl Champions

The last post of 2011 is a fun one to write. The Cincinnati Bearcats powered past the Vanderbilt Commodores 31-24. UC won this one on the back of their work horse, MVP, Big East Offensive Player of the Year and hero of many, Isaiah Pead. He took 28 carries for 150 yards and the game […]


Know Your Opponent: Vanderbilt Commodores

Tomorrow at 3:36 pm, the Cincinnati Bearcats meet up with the Vanderbilt Commodores in the Liberty Bowl. The last time UC was in a bowl game was 2 years ago. They played an SEC team. It didn’t go very well. But this is not that. The Bearcats and Commodores seem pretty evenly matched. Vandy is […]


Cincinnati 56 Oklahoma 55, Plus Pittsburgh Preview

Last night was one of the craziest wins I can remember for a Cincinnati team. I thought they were going to lose and lose looking bad at that. You kept waiting and waiting and waiting for them to get some shots to fall to turn momentum around, but it never happened. Not even during the […]

Cincinnati v Oklahoma Live Blog Recap

The live blog recap was a huge success for the recap of the last game. So much so that it’s going the be the recap for this game. Thoughts will come tomorrow. Then a Pitt preview and a Liberty Bowl preview. Lots of good stuff.  Ok I’m writing this part after the game. That game […]


Zach Collaros Will Start the Liberty Bowl

Breaking news, according to Bearcats twitter feed that you can see above, Butch Jones has announced that Zach Collaros will start the Liberty Bowl on Saturday. Collaros fractured his ankle against West Virginia on November 12. Word after the injury was that UC hoped Collaros could return by the Bearcats bowl game. Due to being […]


Know Your Opponent: Oklahoma Sooners

Tonight at 9 pm on ESPNU, the Cincinnati Bearcats play their last game of 2011 against the Oklahoma Sooners. It’s a ‘neutral’ site game, even though it’s at US Bank Arena. I attended the Big East/SEC Invitational a few years back when it was UC vs Mississippi St and Louisville vs Ole Miss. The biggest […]

Cashmere Wright

Cashmere Wright has had a switch turn since December 10. That day was the Crosstown Shootout. Wright had 4 points, 5 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 turnovers in the Xavier disaster. He was clearly outplayed by Tu Holloway, his PG counterpart. Wright also fouled out of that game. The thing is, that wasn’t even his […]

Cincinnati 95 Chicago St 60

Due to the crazy holiday weekend, hope everyone had a great one, I wasn’t able to catch the Bearcats game against the Chicago St Cougars until last night. At 2 am. It was not the ideal conditions for watching basketball. The game was quick though, under 1:45. The Bearcats continued looking like the team they […]


Know Your Opponent: Chicago State Cougars

The Cincinnati Bearcats are looking to put win 9 under the tree tonight, as they host the Chicago St Cougars at 7 pm on FSN Ohio. Chicago State is incredibly awful. So awful that there are probably some people who read this that could be walk-ons for them. Leonard Stokes, who doesn’t read this blog, […]


Cincinnati v Arkansas-Pine Bluff Thoughts

As promised, here are expanded thoughts on the Bearcats 8th win, a 101-53 romp over the Arkansas-Pine Bluff Golden Lions. If you want to read a recap of the action, look here. I mentioned this in the recap, UC hadn’t scored 100+ in back to back games since 1976. The fact that this team, one […]

Cincinnati 101 Arkansas-Pine Bluff 53

Live blog time. I have nothing better to do 4 days before Christmas other than to do a live blog recap. Teams about to jump. Let’s do it to it.  Justin Jackson wins his first tip of the season. Dixon with a tough shot, but Jackson rebounds and scores with a foul. Dixon gets the […]


Know Your Opponent: Arkansas-Pine Bluff Golden Lions

Tonight at 7 on FSN Ohio and probably other places, the Cincinnati Bearcats play the middle of a 3 game home stand against the Arkansas-Pine Bluff Golden Lions. APB, as they will be called now, is not very good. They are ranked 311 on KenPom. They are ranked 278 in the Sagarin. Cincinnati is significantly […]


Breaking Down Every UC Field Goal: Radford

Part two of breaking down the new UC offense is ready to go. Part 1 went out this morning. It covered the UC offense against Wright State. This time, we move on to the most recent Bearcats game. The Bearcats made 38 FGs against Radford. That’s the most of this season by a whole lot. […]


Breaking Down Every UC Field Goal: Wright State

Since the Cincinnati Bearcats have been an offensive machine the past couple of games, I decided to take a look at how they are doing it. Luckily the past 2 games are on ESPN3. If you hate posts involve 60+ pictures, you are probably goint to kill yourself. Possessions that ended in free throws were […]

Butch Jones Agrees to Extension and More

When Butch Jones turned down every job under the sun but one, everyone thought that the one school left was going to offer him an extension. That happened. Jones agreed to a 6 year deal yesterday. Money details haven’t been released yet. We do know one thing, Butch Jones is gonna get himself paid. Like […]
