The Bearcats helmet for the Belk Bowl ...
I do really like the helmets.
The stadium, meh. If it gets them a real conference invite, then it works.
How do we know he's not Mel Torme?
The good news for UC is that they'll move a lot of product solely on people wanting to get in on the ground floor and be the first people to own a box or purchase premium seating. If they're smart, they'll offer the boxes on 5-10yr leases, which will buy them time to sort the conference situation out before the leases come up for renewal.
24 Years and Counting...
I do wish they will extend the club seating to the full-length of the pavilion prior to finalizing the plans (assuming they can do so within structural and code limitations).

What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?
All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

That was a fun game. Duke went from about to go up a touchdown with 2 minutes left in the game to losing by 2 touchdowns.
Great way to end the year.
"In our sundown perambulations of late, through the outer parts of Brooklyn, we have observed several parties of youngsters playing 'base', a certain game of ball. Let us go forth awhile, and get better air in our lungs. Let us leave our close rooms, the game of ball is glorious"
Tommy Tuberville... Making friends...
When all is said and done more is said than done.
Meh, its hard for me to worry about this one. Tommy Tuberville and Co. will have no problem getting recruits IMO. If one coach isn't happy with him because he may have pulled a scholarship offer then fine. Honestly, there has to be something else to that. If memory serves, Kempt was reported to have reopened his recruitment really early in the process. He claims to have decommitted only after his offer was pulled, which may even be technically true, but he was reportedly already planning to visit other schools, including Tennessee, before his official "decommitment." It is no suprise that Kempt would reopen his recruitment to include the school where Jones, and more importantly Kempt's brother, ended up. The coaches obviously felt that he would not end up at UC, so they moved on to other QB targets. Something tells me this may be a coach looking for attention or a reason to be mad at UC.
Tubs hasnt changed:
Within the last couple of months, new Cincinnati coach Tommy Tuberville has been accused of going postal on an assistant coach, leaving Texas Tech recruits in the middle of dinner to accept a new job, and now running off longtime recruits at Cincy (AP)
Pebblebrook High School defensive back Demetrius Monday de-committed from Cincinnati on Thursday after never hearing from new coach Tommy Tuberville.
“I think it’s messed up,” his father, Bryant Monday, told the AJC. “You wait until a few weeks before signing day to say something? They could have told us a month ago.
“Now we’re left with less than a month until signing day to figure something out. He had other scholarship offers but he hasn’t talked to other coaches in six months … since he committed to Cincinnati on July 25.
“It’s really disappointing.”
The 5-foot-10, 180-pound Monday said he committed to Cincinnati over Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Ball State, Ohio and Georgia State, among others, last summer. Tuberville was hired by Cincinnati on Dec. 8. After not hearing from the new staff, the elder Monday finally called up the football offices this week.
“They told us to ‘look other places,’” Monday said. “I’m in Los Angeles on vacation, and I just got the bad news.
“The thing is, we’ve talked to some other kids committed to Cincinnati. They say the same thing, that they haven’t heard from the staff. Basically (Tuberville) isn’t calling anybody, he’s trying to get the kids to de-commit on their own.
“It’s a bad situation.”
He did this at Auburn and Texas Tech.
