Projecting the Depth Chart: Running Backs

Projecting the Depth Chart: Running Backs

The two guys at the top are locked in, but there will still be a few carries that don’t go to Gerrid Doaks and Michael Warren II. Losing your starting running back would usually put an offense into a bit of a bind entering a new season. For the Cincinnati Bearcats, that is not exactly the case. Thanks to the promising freshman debuts of Gerrid Doaks and Michael Warren II, the backfield is in good hands in the wake of Mike Boone’s graduation. Even with familiar faces back to man the running back posts, that doesn’t mean there won’t be some changes to the personnel supporting them....

Returning Player Refresher: Gerrid Doaks

Returning Player Refresher: Gerrid Doaks

Doaks led the Bearcats in rushing yards last year. He’s probably going to do that again. Of the thousands of plays during the 2017 college football season, the one that has stuck in my mind has been the following: Gerrid Doaks will be the best UC RB since Pead pic.twitter.com/S0ndpOEPzW— #CinCityPride (@TheCinCity) September 23, 2017 It may have ended up coming in vain, as the Cincinnati Bearcats lost this game to Navy, but this touchdown run from Gerrid Doaks was a piece of tangible evidence that the future was bright. Doaks does so much on the play. He sheds a tackler who...

The Three Best Linebackers the Cincinnati Bearcats Will Face in 2018

The Three Best Linebackers the Cincinnati Bearcats Will Face in 2018

The Bearcats know a little something about solid linebacker play and these are the players who live up to that billing the most. Thanks to Eric Wilson, Jaylyin Minor and now Perry Young, the Cincinnati Bearcats have gotten used to having one or two very good linebackers on the roster every year. But they aren’t the only ones. As the Bearcats traverse their 2018 schedule, they will be challenged by some pretty stout defenses and some of those are built around the guys in the middle of the attack. Its nothing new. Last year, the Bearcats dealt with Vontae Diggs (UConn), Shaquem Griffin...

Returning Player Refresher: Michael Warren II

Returning Player Refresher: Michael Warren II

The Bearcats really couldn’t ask for a better second-string running back than Michael Warren. Gerrid Doaks is the running back who captured the imagination of the Cincinnati Bearcats and their fanbase last year and for good reason. But while Doaks made the biggest splash when he jumped into the collegiate football pool, Michael Warren II followed him and doused some onlookers as well. Like Doaks, Warren was a true freshman in 2017 and came to UC as a three-star prospect. Hailing from Toledo, Ohio, the 5’11”, 218-pound back played in all 12 games the Bearcats played last season,...

Who’s Gone, Who’s Back and Who’s New: Running Backs

Who’s Gone, Who’s Back and Who’s New: Running Backs

A group of young running backs is going to, quite literally, carry the Bearcats offense forward. Despite having a decent amount of talent on the roster last year, the Cincinnati Bearcats were not an overly successful rushing team. Of course a team-wide offensive deficiency was a major reason for that, since its not like the Bearcats didn’t have a solid offensive line and some good running backs. Still, averaging only 135.3 yards on the ground per game made them 11th in the American Athletic Conference. The talent in the backfield was there, though, if you cared to dive a bit deeper. The...
