    Re: Big East Football

    Anyone that has kids...DO you guys really believe your kids aren't exposed to this type of behavior/language while attending Jr. High School?

    And yes I'm a father myself. I have taken my kids to several games, when exposed to that type of behavior I tell my kids to just ignore the drunks, you'll have that at many football games/races!

    Just my opinion, but teenagers talking about boobs and dropping as many 4 letter words as possible is a little bit different. There's enough violence and idiots at football games for most parents to keep their younger kids away.

    There needs to be a serious crackdown on the alcohol consumption at these events. Most of the "fans" are drunk before the game ever starts, it's pathetic.
    I don't drink, never have, never will.... but if I did, I would be drunk before the game starts too, if I were the kind who were to get drunk. You can buy a 12 back for less than the price of three drinks at the game.

    Of course the whole culture of football games is a bit ridiculous, IMO.

It was embarassing. I'll never go back.
    I'm sorry to hear this. I've sworn off going to Bengals games for the same reason. Having missed only three UC home football games in five years, I can honestly say that what you experienced is not the norm for UC home games, except for when WVU comes to town.

    One of those games I missed was WVU at Nippert in 2007, but have been to the 2005, 2009 and this weekend's games. All have been horrible environments due to combative drunks and completely opposite to the usual environment. As much as I want to lay this at the hands of the WVU fans, I cannot since it seems fans from both sides were willing to stoop to that level. I'm looking forward to the day when WVU no longer visits Cincinnati, if only because WVU brings out the worst in UC fans.

    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Really sorry to hear that hebron. The section I was in had a good mix of West Virginia and UC fans. Everyone got along very well and just enjoyed the game. At the top of my section there was a group of the roughest looking West Virginia fans you could imagine. As we filled out of the stadium, I ended up chatting with one of the guys about how good of a game it was. Nice as could be. I hope your experience was the exception and mine wasn't.
    How do we know he's not Mel Torme?

    Re: Big East Football

    Negotiations between the Big East and Brigham Young have broken off and the school will not be joining the conference, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press.The person spoke Tuesday on condition of anonymity because the conference and school have not been making their talks public.

    Next coach in.

    Butch Jones has done a nice job and I'd like him to stick around for awhile, but I trust that if he does leave that UC will be able to find a coach to pick up where he left off and continue building the program. Despite the lack of continuity, I think program has shown a steady improvement under each coaching regime. Dantonio made the program respectable, Brian Kelly made the program relevant on the national stage and Butch Jones has done a nice job parlaying that success to bring in better recruits than UC has ever had.

    If Butch were to leave there are plenty of pieces in place to allow the next coach to continue to be successful.

    As an aside, I'm curious about how the uncertainty in the Big East will factor into Butch's decision to stay / leave. None of the jobs being mentioned strike me as anything more than a lateral move or a very slight step up the ladder.
