Cincinnati vs Pittsburgh Jimmy V Classic Preview

The Bearcats look to bounce back from the disappointment of the Crosstown Shootout with a huge ESPN televised game against the Pittsburgh Panthers. The former conference rivals continue play with some non-conference action. Unlike Syracuse vs St John's the other day, this actually feels like a non-conference game. It seems like the Big East was […]


Know Your Opponent: Northwestern State Demons

I was debating on if I should give Northwestern State the KYO treatment, but what the hell. They are 2-0. 2-0 is 2-0. That's a better record than Cincinnati has. That's enough to get a preview. I'll preview teams that are just as boring like Temple and UConn, so it's not like Northwestern State is […]


Cincinnati 62 Rutgers 54

Fresh off win number 17, it's clear that the Cincinnati Bearcats have found their mold for Big East play. The style this teams has to play to win is work your ass off on defense and get to the free throw line on offense. Defense is a staple for every team. No shit. This team […]

Talking Marquette with Mark from Paint Touches

Cincinnati has a big game tomorrow night against familiar foe Marquette. Marquette is 4-0 in Big East play, but haven't really had a dynamic performance. Cincinnati is 3-2, but they face a tough 2 game stretch in 3 days with or without injured point guard Cashmere Wright. Wright was held out of practice on Thursday.  […]

A Look Back: The Kenyon Game

This game is UC legend. Every time UC plays DePaul, either home or on the road, I think about it. It's the Kenyon game. The standout game in a standout career. It's an oldie but a goodie. This is from back in the days that Bob Huggins wore a suit. Yeah, a suit. He was […]


Boise State Not Joining the Big East

Time to beat the dead horse of the Big East yet again.  The biggest story around Cincinnati sports this year has been conference realignment. The Bearcats weren't able to get an ACC bid. They watched the Big East basketball schools formulate a plan to leave the league. Now they are watching Boise State pull a […]

Bearcats End 2012 How It Started, By Beating Pitt

Cincinnati racked up their first Big East win of the season today 70-61 over the Pittsburgh Panthers. Cincinnati beat Pitt on New Year's Day. Cincinnati beat Pitt on New Year's Eve. That's kind of beautiful.  I wrote a big, long post about the game, but stupid effing chrome didn't respond and I lost it. I […]


Cincinnati 48 Duke 34 Belk Bowl

The Cincinnati Bearcats put a bow on back to back 10 win seasons with an amazing win in the Belk Bowl last night, 48-34. The Duke Blue Devils were certainly a game team. Maybe on another day they win this game and they win it going away. But they were not going to beat this […]


New Mexico 55 Cincinnati 54

Cincinnati took their first loss of the season Thursday night, falling to the New Mexico Lobos 55-54. If you like games where people shoot the ball and score points at will, you should not look for a replay of this game! It was not pretty. Cincinnati is very good at defense. New Mexico shot 38.9% […]


Bearcats Win Belk Bowl, Lose to New Mexico

It was a good and bad night for Cincinnati athletics. Late game heroics balanced out and unfortunately caught up to the basketball team.  The football team finished the regular season 10-3 with a 48-34 win over Duke in the Belk Bowl. The game had a wild finish. Duke was driving down the field to win […]

Cincinnati vs New Mexico Preview

Tonight at 9 on ESPN2, the 8th ranked Cincinnati Bearcats play host to the dangerous New Mexico Lobos. New Mexico was a top 25 team this time a week ago, but a tough loss on Saturday knocked them out of the top 25. The Lobos haven't been quite up to par with where they were […]


Belk Bowl Preview: Cincinnati vs Duke

Tomorrow at 6:30 on ESPN, the Cincinnati Bearcats look to make it back to back 10 win seasons when they play the Duke Blue Devils in the Belk Bowl. The Bearcats and Blue Devils have never played before. They have met up on the hardwood. That's when this happened:  If you didn't know that was […]

Bearcats Earn 1st Top 10 Ranking since 2004

Cincinnati is 12-0. For that effort, they have earned a top 10 ranking. In fact, they are 8th in both the AP and coaches polls. I'll post those at the bottom of this post. This is the first time Cincinnati has been ranked in the top 10 since the 2003-2004 season. That team reached the […]


Cincinnati 68 Wright State 58

Cincinnati improved to 12-0 with a stern test against a game Wright State team Saturday afternoon. I was busy being at a Christmas party and had to watch this one off the DVR. That turned out to be a good thing because this was not a pretty game by any means. We've seen Cincinnati turn […]


Cincinnati vs Wright State Preview

Tomorrow at 4 on FSN Ohio, the Cincinnati Bearcats look to sweep the state of Ohio this week as they host the Wright State Raiders. Wright State has played 2 RPI top 100 teams according to stat sheet. They have lost to both of them. They are probably going to lose a third one tomorrow. […]
