        Doesn't bother me. I'm the only Bearcats fan at work among a bunch of Buckeye fans. All of them including my boss will be up late so if I roll in late I won't be the only one on Friday.

        I am dreading the thought of listening to the beligerent Buckeye fans all week at work.

        I hope to God the Bearcats win so I don't have to listen to it after Thursday.

          I almost can't believe I just typed the subject line. WOW! What an incredible ride so far. Bring on the Buckeyes!

            Before it slips my mind: The matchup with osu will be contingent on how closely the refs call the game. If they want to interject themselves and make officiating a factor in the game the advantage swings to the Buckeyes since UC is so aggressive on defense at swatting the ball. Osu is a good FT shooting team so a closely called game where the refs nitpick every little hand swat will send the Buckeyes to the line which the Bearcats cannot afford to do. Also UC's starting line can't afford to get into foul trouble either. The drop off in talent in the next few guys in is too large.

            On the other hand, if the refs let 'em play and call a loose game which allows UC to play stingy defense the Bearcats can beat Ohio State.

            We shall see.

            PS: as if we needed any additional motivation for this game as a fanbase, how good does it feel that the Bearcats could wreck the Presidents bracket?

              I second this statement ten fold. I hope Mick shows the tape of when OSU had to play us at our lowest point as a program 5 years ago to get the boys pumped for these pompous a$$holes!

                  Egad. I went to one of there message board briefly and, my word talk about lowest common denominator. Not a single intelligent post. It was baffling. It made the comment section on ESPN look like high prose. it was just racial slurs and exclamation marks.

                  If this board looked like that (about ANY team) I would not post here.

                    Let me tell you as someone who walks among these belligerent drunks on a daily basis, what you see on the message boards is not an exaggeration. If you so much as openly critique the Buckeyes it about comes to fisticuffs in this town. At a minimum you'll suffer a deluge of ad hominem attacks and not a word about the merit of your argument. After all, their idol is a coach who punched an opposing player and many of them are proud of it.

                    I mean c'mon, I love my Bearcats but there are other things in life more important than a sports team. In Columbus they are maniacal over the Buckeyes.

                      I actually felt comfortable with the rotation of Jaquon, Sanders, Mbodj, Killa, and Dixon, it only happened for about 2 minutes in the first half against FSU and then Dix came out for Cash (for another 2-3 before a full switch) but in all that rotation held their own.
                      I think that getting Guyn and Sanders in the games has been great and can only help with getting them more involved this Thursday.

                      I am interested in the game plan but even if we get a few quick fouls I think that a quick interim lineup is coming together at just the right time, and can be inserted... not to turn the tide but to hold at least.

                        Maybe, just maybe, beating OSU will get us off the bubble. One can hope right?

                          From the ESPN rapid reaction.

                          "What’s next: Cincinnati (26-10) will advance to the Sweet 16 to face second-seeded Ohio State on Thursday night in Boston. It's one of those matchups that you wouldn't see during the regular season. Ohio State hasn't been willing to play Cincinnati on a regular basis and has typically wanted to play only if the game were in Columbus."

                          Wow. Just simply wow. ESPN calling OSU out for us, that is a shocker.

                              Headlines can't miss it

                              Anyhow, OSU is property of UC in NCAA tourney.
                              There is a media sensation going to brew up this week. That line was just the start of it. The media is and has always been hungry for OSU vs UC, and this is shark week.
