Graduation Day

In the Bearcats team room there is a list of “program goals”.  At the top, above winning a conference championship, is “graduating”.  Academics are important to Coach Tuberville and when the team lines up to start the season, 16 of the 17 seniors will be taking the first snap as a graduate of the University of Cincinnati.  Here is a look at a few of those special seniors as they got their degrees on Saturday.



Having a Backup Plan

On the field players are taught to follow the play thats called, but also be ready to react in case things don’t go as planned.  Most players come to UC with plans of playing in the NFL, but are they ready to react in this situation if things don’t go as planned?    The answer is, yes and Adrian Witty is a perfect example.



True Appreciation

Coach Tuberville and his coaches know how important the campus faculty and professors are to the success of their program. They understand that it’s a partnership that will benefit these young men when they move on from college and begin their lives. So with spring practice now behind them Coach Tuberville invite the players professors over to his office for Skyline lunch to get to know them better.



Kids Came To Play

Following the Bearcats spring scrimmage the team opened up the field to kids of all ages to get a chance to play football on the Bengals home field. The players ran the different drills and it’s hard to tell the difference between the kids…and the players!



Bearcats Are Downtown

Saturday may have marked the end of the spring practice season, but it was also the beginning of the Bearcats 2014 season downtown. This fall the team will cal Paul Brown Stadium their home while Nippert Stadium is being renovated back on campus.



Coach Tuberville’s Spring MVB

Today the team wrapped up their spring practice, all that is left is the spring game at Paul Brown Stadium on Saturday.  So after a month and a half of practices we asked Coach Tuberville who his most valuable player was….and it’s not who, or what you might think.



Spring Spotlight: Coach Jeff Koonz Safeties

Spring break is over and it’s time to get back to football.  Today we take a look at one of the new additions to the coaching staff, safeties Coach, Jeff Koonz.  His players said that they have a tough time “keeping up” with Coach Koonz in practice.  Take a look and you will see what they mean.



Delaying Spring Break

When the final whistle blew at the end of Thursdays practice it was the beginning of spring break. As a few players jokingly said they were ready for a little “me time”. Spending the next week with friends and family is something all of the players were looking forward to….but a few guys decided to lend a helping hand to the less fortunate before taking time for themselves on spring break.
