Bearcats Recap: What You Missed Over Break

Rally Cats

Did you fall off the face of the Earth or spend your entire winter break in an area that hasn't yet gained access to the internet or television? No worries, we are here to catch you up on everything you missed in regards to Bearcats Basketball over break!

 

The #22 Bearcats kicked off their winter break stretch with the toughest game of them all: at historic Hinkle Fieldhouse vs. the #16 Butler Bulldogs. 

The Bearcats battled in the tough road environment but ultimately fell by 10 to the Bulldogs.

*The Bulldogs are currently ranked #12 and defeated the former #1 Villanova Wildcats by 8. 

 

How would the Bearcats rebound from their 2nd loss of the season?

WWWWWW

The Bearcats are currently riding a 6-game winning streak, including a 3-0 start in conference play and are still ranked #22 in the country.

 

Last Game: at Houston

Each Bearcats starter scored double-figures, made a 3-pt shot, and had at least 1 assist.

 

Next Game:

Thursday, 1.12.17 vs. SMU - 9 PM TIPOFF - ESPN

*The game is a Ring of Red so obviously COME EARLY, BE LOUD, AND WEAR RED. 

Tickets can be purchased at www.gobearcats.com/tickets or 1-877-CATS-TIX! 

BONUS: In case you REALLY haven't been paying attention to anything, The Bearcats also hired a new head football coach: Luke Fickell, former Defensive Coordinator from Ohio State. He has put together one heck of a staff and has already landed a big local recruit, Jarell White from La Salle. Exciting times are ahead for Bearcats Football.

Top 5 RallyCats Bus Trips

Rally Cats

Over the years the RallyCats has had the opportunity to travel all across the country to cheer on the Bearcats. The RCBT's (RallyCats Bus Trips) have become one of our biggest traditions. With our Philadelphia trip departing this evening, we thought we would recap the top 5 RallyCats Bus Trips of recent memory.

 

5) Pittsburgh, PennsylvaniaFall 2011

Sport: Football

Opponent: Pittsburgh Panthers

Attendance: 54 Students

Result: Bearcats 26 – Panthers 23

 

The Bearcats were heading back to Pittsburgh for the first time since the famous Pike-to-Binns touchdown in 2009. 54 RallyCats departed campus the morning of November 5th. After checking into the hotel, the group made their way to Heinz Field. The game was back and forth throughout the first 3 quarters. Early in the 4th, Tony Miliano drilled a 41-yard field goal which put the Bearcats ahead for good. It was a fantastic weekend and the final River City Rivalry played in Pittsburgh belonged to the Bearcats. 

 

 

4) Brooklyn, New YorkFall 2015

Sport: Basketball

Opponents: Nebraska Cornhuskers & George Washington

Attendance: 108 Students

Results: Cincinnati 65 – Nebraska 61 Cincinnati 61 – George Washington 56

 

108 students and the Bearcat Bands traveled to Brooklyn for the 2015 Barclays Center Classic.  Throughout the weekend the team fed off of the energy from the crowd.  On Friday the Bearcats defeated Nebraska in the first round of the tournament.  On Saturday the Bearcats defeated George Washington in the Championship Game on Saturday.  After the championship game the team joined in with a round of Down the Drive before the team and Coach Cronin thanked us for making the trip.

 

 

3) New Orleans, LouisianaSpring 2015

Sport: Basketball

Opponent: Tulane Green Wave

Attendance: 108 Students

Result: Cincinnati 63 – Tulane 47

 

The game may have been played 809 miles from Cincinnati, but it was by no means an away game. Devlin Fieldhouse seats 4,100, but 108 RallyCats took over that arena from the moment we arrived. Social Media erupted as Down the Drive rang through the broadcast. The announcers praised our efforts with their comment, “This isn’t Fifth Third Arena, but it sure sounds like it!”

 

The Bearcats dominated every part of the game and the players fed off the energy. In attendance at that game was a Bearcats recruit named Jacob Evans. Evans made his way over to our section early in the 1st half and stayed the entire game. He cheered with us. He booed with us. He sang the alma mater with us.

 

 

2) Washington, DCFall 2012

Sport: Football

Opponent: Virginia Tech Hokies

Attendance: 108 Students

Result: Cincinnati 27 – Virginia Tech 24

 

Who could forget this game? The Bearcats were traveling to Landover, Maryland for a “home game” against Virginia Tech at FedEx Field. The Hokies scored the go-ahead touchdown with less than two minutes remaining in the game. With the Bearcats trailing 24-20, Quarterback Munchie Legaux led the Bearcats down the field. On 3rd and 10 with 20 seconds remaining... this happened:

 

The Monday after the game, RallyCats received a letter from head coach Butch Jones thanking us for making the trip to DC.

"When I hear RallyCats, I immediately sense the passion, pride and leadership that you display." -Butch Jones

Hands down, this was the best game RallyCats has ever traveled to.

 

AND FINALLY...

1) Miami, Florida Fall 2014

Sport: Football

Opponent: Miami Hurricanes

Attendance: 210 Students

Result: Not relevant

 

Our longest bus trip. Our largest bus trip. Sold out in less than 7 minutes. #BearcatsInSouthBeach was one for the ages.

 

The plan was to take 108 students to Miami over Fall Break for the Bearcats matchup with the Hurricanes. However, a malfunction in the ticket office caused 210 tickets to be sold. With the help of Athletics and Student Government we were able to accommodate all 210 students for the 4-day, 2-night trip to South Beach!

 

On Friday all 210 students filled the beach for the entire day.  With the Bearcats and City of Cincinnati flags flying high we enjoyed a beautiful day on the beach.  We enjoyed cornhole, spikeball, and much, much more.  The result of the game on Saturday wasn’t what we had hoped for but that didn’t matter.  These trips are about much more than wins or losses.  They are about celebrating our love for the University of Cincinnati and the Bearcats.

 

*Honorable Mention – Tampa, FloridaSpring 2016

Sport: Basketball

Opponent: South Florida Bulls

Attendance: 25 Students

Result: Cincinnati 54 – South Florida 51

 

This wasn’t a RallyCats bus trip. In fact, it wasn’t a bus trip at all. RallyCats got to opportunity to travel with the basketball team to Tampa for their matchup with the Bulls. We got to interact with the players and many alumni on our two-day trip. It was an amazing experience for everyone who was lucky enough to attend.

This trip was one of the many perks you get for being in RallyCats.

The Ruckus Proves a Force to be Reckoned With in Bearcats' 34-23 Victory Over Miami (FL)

Colin Baker

As many were tailgating and preparing for the game the RallyCats arrived at 4pm to set-up the “Bring the Ruckus” towels and “The rUCkus” Under Armour T-Shirts! The gates opened at 5:30pm and the festivities began. The student section AKA The Ruckus was filled to capacity by 7:00pm.


Unfortunately, the Bearcats took a slip before the game even began:

But they got up and continued to fight! Hosey Williams and Shaq Washington started the game off with two electrifying plays:

After that, the Bearcats never looked back. Andrew Gantz hit a 51 yard field goal and Hayden Moore lead the offense to 34 points and 446 yards. The defense also showed up when Leviticus Payne brought the “Payne:”

The defense played great throughout the game and showed up during key plays, getting a stop on 4th and goal with four minutes left to seal the game.


The stars of the game were the Ruckus! The student section brought their A game all night and created a very exciting and intimidating atmosphere:

And to top it all off, the Ruckus stormed the field!


First Football Watch Party Goes off Without a Hitch

Colin Baker

Last Thursday as the Bearcats took on the Memphis Tigers, the RallyCats took over Taste of Belgium Clifton! Taste of Belgium is the Official Home of the RallyCats and all Bearcats watch parties! The watch party was a huge success, students started to arrive around 7:00pm and by kickoff at 7:30 the restaurant was packed! We had about 200 students come and watch the game throughout the evening. Many enjoyed the excellent drink specials ($1 Miller Lights, $2 Shooters and bucket deals), the fantastic game day menu, and one lucky student walked away with a pair of Mac miller tickets! The RallyCat burger and chips with beer cheese were two thumbs up! Even though the Bearcats fought hard and came in 2nd place, the RallyCats had a great time at Taste of Belgium. We want to thank Taste of Belgium and their wonderful staff for hosting us and remind all students to join us again on November 7th for our next watch party to #beatHouston! 

Remember this Thursday, the Cats take on The U in a primetime matchup on ESPN at 7:30 PM. Make sure to Come Early, Be Loud and Wear Black! We'll see you at the game, and Go Bearcats!


University of Cincinnati Student Organizations Unite Behind Sportsmanship

Transcript:

University of Cincinnati Student Groups Unite Behind Sportsmanship

The student section is the proud heartbeat of our athletics program. The energy and enthusiasm we bring inspires our student-athletes, enhances the game day atmosphere for all fans in attendance, and plays a vital role in the Bearcats success on the field.

Unfortunately, our desire to passionately support our teams occasionally results in the display of well-intended, yet still unequivocally inappropriate behavior. We recognize that profane chants have been directed at opponents from our student section, and we apologize to anyone we may have offended. We conducted ourselves in a manner that is contrary to what our university and athletics program represent in our mission to be “the class of the league.” For that, we are deeply sorry and greatly ashamed. This is not what we have been taught at our excellent institution and certainly not how we wish to be characterized.

As student leaders, we will work tirelessly to educate our fellow students on proper conduct at sporting events in an effort to eradicate any and all forms of inappropriate behavior. Ultimately, our goal is to ensure that this behavior, and any other similarly unbecoming conduct, will never again occur in our student section.

As evidenced by record-breaking student attendance numbers, our support for Bearcats athletics has never been stronger. It is truly an amazing time to be a student at the University of Cincinnati. Through actions that embody our values of spirit and sportsmanship, let’s continue building the best home-field advantage in all of college sports!

See you on Game Day!
