Support the Bearcats!

I am the first to start complaining about how I think the Bearcats got screwed in the bowl selection process. I don’t buy the “Cincinnat fans don’t travel well” mentality…especially when you’re comparing us to USF and UConn fans. We beat both in heads up competition and have a better BCS ranking than UConn and are essentially tied with USF. Sure there are some other ridiculous reasons (not anything related to the quality of play) that were factored in, but I’ll save those for another time I guess.

The bottom line is that Cincinnati needs to start supporting these Bearcats so that there will be no doubt in future bowl selection processes. We’ll be playing in the Bowl in Birmingham, AL against the 4th place team from C-USA (Southern Miss). Lets get out there in large numbers and cheer our Bearcats on to what is sure to be an absolute blowout victory.

If you are a student, the Athletics Department is looking to get some sponsorships and get a really good financial deal for students to go to the game. What you need to do is call the ticket office, send UC Bearcat a message on Facebook, or go online. Just give your name and UC student ID number and you’ll be put on a list of interested students. THE MORE THE BETTER!
