American Athletic Conference Tournament Preview: Cincinnati Bearcats vs. Tulane Green Wave

The Bearcats will face quite a challenge against the Green Wave in the second round. After a historic victory in the first round of the American Athletic Conference Baseball Tournament, the No. 2 seed Cincinnati Bearcats will challenge the No. 3 seed Tulane Green Wave in the second part of Thursday’s winner’s bracket at Spectrum Field in Clearwater, Florida. The Story So Far David Orndorff allowed a solo home run in the top of the first inning, setting an ominous tone for the Cincinnati Bearcats’ first round matchup with the Memphis Tigers. However, that was more of a small hiccup...

Bearcats Power Past Memphis in American Athletic Conference Tournament

Bearcats Power Past Memphis in American Athletic Conference Tournament

The Bearcats got an offensive outburst from the bottom part of the lineup to move on to the next round. For a team that ranked last in the American Athletic Conference in runs scored this season, the Cincinnati Bearcats looked like an offensive powerhouse on Tuesday in the first round of the league tournament. Led by a perfect 4-for-4 outing at the plate from right fielder A.J. Bumpass, the No. 2 seed Bearcats advanced past the No. 7 seed Memphis Tigers with an 11-6 win. The bottom of the order really stepped up for the Bearcats (27-29) in this one, with the last four batters, including...

The Week in Cincinnati Bearcats Baseball: A Final Week Split

The Week in Cincinnati Bearcats Baseball: A Final Week Split

The Bearcats got prepared for the postseason by splitting four games against local adversaries. The regular season has come to a close for the Cincinnati Bearcats, who played four games during the past week and split those decisions, finishing at 26-29 overall. For a team that completed its conference schedule last weekend, the Bearcats were in the unfortunate position of having no way to influence their seeding in the American Athletic Conference Tournament during these last few days. That doesn’t mean these games didn’t mean anything, especially since three of them came against...

Chris Vogt is an Answer to the Cincinnati Bearcats’ Frontcourt Question

Chris Vogt is an Answer to the Cincinnati Bearcats’ Frontcourt Question

Vogt has not only played under John Brannen, he will help fill a positional need. Just yesterday I wrote a post about how the Cincinnati Bearcats were going to need depth in the froncourt due to recent transfer news. They have added some and in lightning quick fashion, with former Northern Kentucky center Chris Vogt announcing his decision to transfer to UC yesterday. It’s almost as if John Brannen was just sitting around constantly refreshing the home page at Down the Drive, waiting for some sort of direction. Almost. In actuality, this has probably been in the works for at least the...

Could Blue Smith’s Commitment Signal a New Offensive Approach for Cincinnati?

Could Blue Smith’s Commitment Signal a New Offensive Approach for Cincinnati?

The Bearcats have added some real talent at wide receiver and that might lead to enhanced offensive versatility and production. As the old adage goes, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. The Cincinnati Bearcats certainly weren’t broken last season, as they won 11 games and earned their first bowl victory since 2012. Although the defense was at the very center of that success, there is no denying that the Bearcats had a very distinct offensive strategy and one that paid dividends. Led by second-team All-American Athletic Conference running back Michael Warren, the Bearcats were one of...

Bearcats Will Need Frontcourt Depth if Eliel Nsoseme Leaves

Bearcats Will Need Frontcourt Depth if Eliel Nsoseme Leaves

As the Bearcats’ roster continues to get thinner, there is a real need to find players who can contribute in the paint. Long before the 2018-19 season began, before the Cincinnati Bearcats won their second-straight American Athletic Conference Tournament, before they suffered another brutal loss in the NCAA Tournament and before Mick Cronin decided to pack his bags and head to UCLA, it was known that the Bearcats would need to find replacements for the backcourt. With Justin Jenifer and Cane Broome both set to graduate, there would be two guard posts left empty entering the 2019-20...

Let James Hudson Play Football

Let James Hudson Play Football

This should be fixed already. James Hudson is one of the many college athletes who decided that he would like to transfer to pursue his passion at another school. The school he chose was the University of Cincinnati. However, the former Michigan Wolverine also hoped to play as soon as possible. That didn’t seem like a particularly outlandish request, especially in the wake of seeing the NCAA grant eligibility to other players. Unfortunately for Hudson, the NCAA denied his request but for a reason that has left many feeling puzzled at best and enraged at worst. #Bearcats I need your...
