The Bearcats have declared the season opener against Toledo on Friday, Sept. 12 a whiteout. The Miami (OH) contest on Saturday, Sept. 20 will serve as the Ring of Red game while the East Carolina matchup will be a blackout. For games without a color designation, fans are encouraged to come early, be loud and wear black.
With the win, Cincinnati moves to 18-26 while Army falls to 32-15. UC has now taken two straight games from the Black Knights, who are the co-champions of the Patriot League and are currently receiving votes in the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association national poll.
On a cool and windy day in Tampa, Florida, the University of Cincinnati track & field programs competed at the second day of the inaugural American Athletic Conference Outdoor Championships, which was comprised of mostly preliminary rounds. The men head into the final day of competition in sixth place, and the women enter Sunday in 10th.
All event proceeds will benefit the UC Cancer Institute’s Comprehensive Breast Cancer Center. Over the past eight years, this event has raised in excess of $100,000 for local breast cancer diagnostic equipment.
The honor is the second for Dose in as many years after earning All-BIG EAST honors last season. Dose led the team the Bearcats this season with a 74.75 scoring average in 11 rounds. She shot a low round this season of 70 during the third round of the Price’s Give `Em Five Intercollegiate. The senior recorded two top-five finishes this season and three top-10 finishes.
As always in recruiting getting the guy on campus is the challenge. Stewart has five schools that he plans to visit in a official capacity UC, USC, Pitt, Boston College and Oklahoma State. It might be hoping a bit too much for the visit to go so well that Stewart commits on the spot. But a guy can dream.
Because the player stipend — often called ‘covering cost of attendance’ — is just an appetizer. The push from the five biggest conferences — SEC, Big 12, Big Ten, Pac-12 and ACC — to approve different ways to spend their money on athletes could apply pressure on the American, Mountain West, MAC, C-USA and Sun Belt to keep up.
But it’s pretty easy to like what you see elsewhere on this roster. Carden and his top two targets return, the front seven should still be big and fun, and there are candidates at running back and linebacker. All the secondary and offensive line have to do is avoid total collapse, and ECU could approximate last year’s top-40 ranking.
Every year Nick Saban and the Alabama Crimson Tide have one of the strongest rosters in the nation. Every year we also see a healthy crop of Bama players headed to the NFL and this year is no different. Last week I did an all Florida State draft this week we look at what if the Bengals when “ROLL TIDE!” in every round.
With the reckless abandon the Reds have shown on the basepaths thus far in 2014, not managing to score in the sixth inning would have been quite apropos. Getting away with sending Ryan Ludwick during a hit and run earlier in the inning, when he froze in between third and home, it seemed luck had caught up with the Reds. But, Johnny Cueto carried the good vibes he had going on the mound into the batter’s box and stroked an RBI single to put the Reds ahead 4-2.
If you go to the 3:20 mark in the video, you’ll see the lowlights of Cicotte’s five-run fourth inning. (At one point, interestingly, a ball is hit on the infield and he neither goes for it nor tries to back up a base.) If you’re a certain kind of fan, this is an astonishing thing to see; the Black Sox were neither the first nor the only team to collude with gamblers, and may not have been the first to throw World Series games, but this was the precise moment when the problem became too obvious to ignore, and which forced baseball to decide whether or not it would be a level game. It’s right there with Jackie Robinson’s debut among the most significant moments in the game’s history.
