Butch's job is going to be on the block if they don't win at least their division this year. They really have stockpiled some serious talent, but like you point out, that whole development thing has kinda been lacking.

UNION, Ky. -- ...

Wow, never really thought I'd see the city of my current residence on 11 warriors.
 

Anyways, as you can imagine, the excuses for this kid ('not his fault he got so drunk!') are running wild here, despite the video.

“That visit solidified Ohio State as my number one, but no commitment,” Carman said. “And Michigan has fell off a little. ”

Sounds like a double win to me. 

Comment 15 Jun 2016

They are the presumptive SEC East champs and are being put in the playoff discussion. 

​Its only been 18 years since they won the SEC and 9 since they even won their division... whats the hurry?

Jones is the longest tenured coach in the East now, and with consecutive games against Florida, Georgia, and Alabama... going 2-1 through that stretch is imperative (plus going approximately undefeated the rest of the year) for his job standing. Sounds like a tall task.

I cant explain WHY, but Tennessee has been doing pretty okay themselves lately with Jennings ('15, #6 DT-QB) and Jones ('15, #7) and Guarantano ('16, #1).

Again, I will never be able to explain the why part, but they appear to be building a nice stable of DT-QBs.

 Clark is the forgotten player in all of this and I'm not sure that's fair. 

I think Collier is the 'forgotten one' here. I'm guessing everyone is considering him to be a lifetime backup? The injury isnt going to help him at all, obviously, missing this season. 

I hate to see any of these guys leave/transfer, but if thats the case, then they weren't the competitor Urbz was looking for anyways.

I'm not familiar with Shields, but Snyder deserves this award easily. He was just an absolute beast and that match with Gwiaz was probably one of the best matches I've ever seen. Hopefully he can bring that Gold medal home this summer.

I dont think they are spaced at terrible times. For this team, I think they need that rest and time to develop (especially the O-line). 

Could be worse, UC started the season with TWO bye weeks. Thats not even counting games against Toledo and Miami, OH, as byes.  

Comment 23 Sep 2014

Well, lets kick out Nebraska and take in UC and hope they get invited for membership to AAU.

I forgot about the AAU accreditation. However, that is hardly the only significant metric to quantify academic stature and research (I'm not arguing that UC should/should have been brought into the BIG, just that they are a respectable research institute, especially when compared to the SEC and others, for example). 

It is interesting (sad?), that both the SEC and Big12 only have 4 (I may have miscounted, dont shoot me if I cant count right) schools that are accredited by the AAU.

"Over the weekend, four members of the University of Cincinnati football program were involved in an unfortunate incident that resulted in one arrest and three citations. We have higher expectations of everyone within our football program and there will be consequences for those actions," Tuberville said in a statement.

"Alex Thomas was arrested by the Cincinnati Police Department and charged with obstruction after running from the scene. In accordance with my team rules, he will not be eligible to participate in a game until his legal matter is completely resolved. He has a preliminary court date on Oct. 14 so he will miss at least four games and possibly more.

"Three other players, Ey'Shawn McClain, Leviticus Payne and Hosey Williams, were cited for minor misdemeanors and they have been disciplined for their involvement in the incident. They remain on our active roster.

"This kind of behavior is not acceptable and not indicative of the UC football program. Moving forward, we will continue to educate our players on making good decisions and being great representatives of the University."

Looks like only the freshman, non-starter Thomas will be the only one suspended.

And shoutout to all the UC students whose closets contain more Ohio State than UC gear that will be cheering for the Bearcats on next Saturday. You can just stay on that side.

UC student here who will be at the game next Saturday. Sadly for UC, this will apply to a rather large percentage of the 4,000 coming. Many of 'us' will be wearing our scarlet jerseys to the game.
