Cincy Bearcats

I was able to watch the Wichita State game this past weekend, and was surprised Cincy lost. I'm still very impressed with them however, and am considering carrying their flag this March. Wondering how everyone else is viewing them and the top contenders in general for the upcoming tournament.

5 should go from the American Conference. Cinci will be a 3 seed. They look good being 2nd in defense in the nation, that could mean a few nice wins early on and a chance that a 1 or 2 seed gets beaten in their bracket. I see them getting to the final 8 after that they would need a few upsets to make the final 4.

I view this year as somewhat wide open. All things being equal, Wichita should maybe be a slight favorite to win it all but they will get hampered by the draw as they always do.

The metrics show they may have taken a step back from last year but I'm not sure I'm buying it since they returned basically everyone. This is the most talent they've ever had.

I took a flyer on the Bearcats at 40/1 back in January. Historically, they've tended to wear down by March, but one can't knock the way they defend.

They caught Virginia and Zona. If they get to the F4, they'll have earned it.

First time I've seen OK all year. I've read the Young hype, but this is the first time I've seen him. He has to be the quickest player I've seen this year. That kid is fast, to say the least.

Both those teams took first round craps. UVA first ever 1 to loss to a 16 and they were blow out by 20, what an embarrassment. UVA constantly does not play to their seeding, way under performing. All three teams from my state are out, at least lowly Radford won their play in game.

i'm from Boston and i love the 1975 big red machine. i laid 2-1 on the Reds to win the world series that year, Bill Lee served Tony Perez up an effis pitch, and Perez parked him and the Reds came back from a 3-1 deficit and won the game and the series!

Was Collmus the bettor that put $800 on UMBC against UVA on the money line and made $16k?

LOL, I doubt it.

Guess we can close down this Cincy thread now?

We're medium Nevada fans. (Meaning, we do not bleed but root heavily.)

Could not believe the run that brought them back from a 22-point deficit!

Shocked.

Watched this as a newly minted Nevadan at the Peppermill poker room. They stopped dealing cards for the last 30 seconds of game time.

Not a Basketball fan but was fun to root with everyone else.
