Editorial Staff

Chris Bains, editor

A Cincinnati Bearcat fan for as long as I can remember, I now live in Chicago, Illinois but still consider myself a Cincinnatian through and through. I've been writing obsessively about the Bearcats for three years now, hopefully providing a unique flavor on the football and basketball teams all UC fans care about. It's a cathartic experience, writing is, and made even easier by following a school that boasts strong football and basketball programs. Go Bearcats!

Jesse Smith, Staff Writer

UC is why Sallie Mae is on my back. A Cincy resident that loves the Bearcats. EIC over at http://thefrontofficenews.com . I'm just trying to channel my inner Van Exel.

Ben Levin, Staff Writer

Levin is a Cincinnati resident and a 2010 alumnus of the University of Cincinnati. He has been following the Bearcats passionately since his time as a student, and joined the staff of Cincy On The Prowl in Fall 2013.

Spencer Tuckerman, Staff Writer

Born in Cincinnati but raised in Cleveland, I returned to Cincy where I'm currently a UC student in the Electronic Media division of CCM. In addition to following sports religiously, I also enjoy writing, making music, and watching movies. When it comes to pro sports, I'm embarrassingly devoted to Cleveland. However, I love my Bearcats, and proudly support the best school in the great city of Cincinnati. Go Bearcats!

About FanSided

FanSided was born in 2007, when two brothers felt that their favorite team, the Kansas City Chiefs, was being under-covered by the mainstream media. Taking matters into their own hands, they launched Arrowhead Addict, a move that would spawn a network of over 290 fan-powered unique sports and entertainment sites dedicated to team-specific, sport-specific, genre-specific, and fanbase-specific coverage.

From sports, movies and TV to lifestyle and tech, FanSided has you covered.
