In a truly inspiring instance of perseverance through pure failure and godawful struggles, 12th-ranked Cincinnati basketball scored only 15 points in the first half, yet still won their game against UCF tonight. The Bearcats came, uh, “roaring” back with a staggering 34(!) second-half points, while holding the Knights…
Welcome to the Deadspin 25, a college football poll that strives to be more democratic and less useless than every other preseason poll. Leading up to the college football season kickoff, we will give you previews of the 25 teams that you, the readers, voted to be most worthy of writing about. Now, No. 2 Cincinnati.
While other coaches are quick to entertain questions regarding potential seeding and region placements in the weeks leading up to the NCAA tournament, Cincinnati head coach Mick Cronin made clear on Wednesday that he’s not buying the NCAA’s athletes-first schtick.
Cincinnati’s going to finish this season with a losing record, but the Bearcats aren’t total losers after pulling off this trick play against Tulsa for a touchdown. Maybe if they’d shown this kind of creativity earlier in the season, they wouldn’t... have a losing record.
Cincinnati says Tommy Tuberville telling a fan to “go to hell” and “get a job” was the result of the Bearcats coach being put in a “no-win situation.” That’s unfair; UC actually has four wins this season.
Cincinnati head coach Tommy Tuberville was getting it from the fans after the Bearcats’ 20-3 loss to BYU at home tonight, and he gave it back to one of them—telling the man to “go to hell” and “get a job”:
Referees waved off Octavius Ellis’s would-be buzzer-beating dunk for Cincinnati after video replay showed the Bearcats senior still had the ball as the horn sounded.
When Cincinnati’s Kevin Johnson hit a three-pointer with two seconds remaining in the third overtime of the Bearcats’ American quarterfinal against UConn, it looked like the Huskies were toast. But Jalen Adams drilled a shot off the inbounds pass that came with less than a second remaining to force a fourth overtime…
Cincinnati quarterback Gunner Kiel lay motionless on the field in Memphis after taking a shot to the head from Tigers defensive back Chauncey Lanier. Lanier was initially ejected for the act, but officials reversed the penalty after replay review.
You’d think the wave of shit that came crashing down on Virginia Tech defensive coordinator Bud Foster after he told reporters of his plans to discipline his players with monetary fines, followed by the Hokies AD’s immediate nuking of the asinine idea, would have scared other schools away from trying the same thing.…
Cincinnati's going to lose to Kentucky, but they'll always have the moment Troy Caupain played tip-drill after a Wildcats block and managed to find the basket. If you listen closely, you can hear the tears of joy trickle down a delighted Verne Lundquist's face.
I—and everybody else, surely—was screaming "SHOOT THE DAMN BALL ALREADY" at Cincinnati's Troy Caupain as he seemingly took an eternity to attempt and tie the ballgame. But Caupain's internal clock had Swiss watchmaker-like accuracy, and by golly he was going to use up 7.3 of the 7.4 seconds he had to get off the…
Cincinnati is locked in a tight battle with Purdue for the right to play (presumably) Kentucky in the next round, but their task just got a lot harder after forward Octavius Ellis was given a flagrant two and ejected for the forearm shiver above. He seemed to regret his excessively violent boxing out technique, as he…

University of Cincinnati redshirt freshman running back Chamoda Kennedy-Palmore was killed Thursday afternoon in a motorcycle accident. According to police, another vehicle turned across two lanes of traffic in front of Kennedy-Palmore, failing to yield the right of way, and was struck by his motorcycle. He was…
Mick Cronin was not a happy camper as he watched his No. 11 Cincinnati squad lose 51-45 to unranked UConn. After a call went against Cincinnati on a loose ball, Cronin angrily voiced his displeasure with Ted Valentine who was, of course, only too happy to entertain the grievance.
After Cincinnati (7) went on a 10-0 run in the last four minutes to get themselves back in it against Louisville (11), the lead changed three times in the final 30 seconds. Thanks to Russ Smith, the Cardinals were on the right end of the eeny-meeny-miny-moe finish and won 58-57.
A car accident last night claimed the life of Cincinnati Bearcats lineman Ben Flick while leaving two of his teammates injured.
Our favorite quarterback named Munchie suffered a very unfortunate knee injury today against Illinois. Here's hoping it's better than it looked.
