  2. 2023 Cincinnati Bearcats Schedule *Conference games in red Week 1: at Liberty Week 2: Arizona Week 3: Bye Week 4: at Temple Week 5: at Tulsa Week 6: Memphis Week 7: at LSU Week 8: Bye Week 9: Pittsburgh Week 10: at UCF Week 11: Bye Week 12: East Carolina Week 13: USF Week 14: at Connecticut Week 15: Bye Week 16: Houston Excitement is building on the campus of the University of Cincinnati, and it’s not just because of the new Skyline Chili and Gold Star Chili locations on campus that will be opening the beginning of September. No, the talk of the university is the upcoming football season and the debate of what the Bearcats will look like on the field this year. Fans are optimistic about the 2023 season after over performing last year and ending in the middle of the table in the conference. But on paper, the Bearcat have a tough road if they want to finish the year with a bowl game. Preseason predictions have the Cincinnati with the edge on 3 of their 12 opponents, which means the Bearcats are going to have to do better than expected again this year. Cincinnati’s begins the 2023 season with what should be a win against Liberty, followed by a tough but manageable challenge against Arizona. The Bearcats then start conference play in a battle against defending conference champions Temple. Two manageable games against Tulsa and Memphis come next with the Bearcats hoping to come out of this stretch with 1 or 2 conference wins. The middle of the schedule will be the hardest stretch for Cincinnati with OOC opponents #10 LSU and Pittsburgh followed by conference games against UCF, East Carolina, and USF. The season ends with games against Connecticut and Houston, both of which the Bearcats should be able to come away from with wins. Overall, the Bearcats are going to have to pull some upsets to even have a shot at a bowl game this year. But did better than expected last year, and that is what the fans are hoping for this year as well.

    [2022] Week #5 - FNF

    gg @Weeze56m It was a nail biter the whole way
  11. Week 3 Recap This week the American Athletic Conference saw all out of conference games as teams try to find their stride before in conference games begin. Here is a quick recap of the AAC games this past week. Wins After week 3: 2-0 Won 30-26 vs Utah State UCF managed to come out and take a small lead early, but was unable to get any comfortable distance from the Aggies. While UCF had solid offensive yardage, they couldn’t help but give away 100 yards in penalties. Utah State was unable to capitalize however and UCF gets a win going into their first conference game against Houston. After week 3: 2-1 Won 41-21 vs MTSU Memphis laid down 31 of their 41 points in the first half while not allowing MTSU to do anything offensively. The second half was just clock management and a few garbage points for the Blue Raiders. Memphis takes this solid win into the bye week before facing their first conference opponent in week 5 After week 3: 2-1 Won 42-14 vs Louisiana-Monroe Like Memphis, USF had this game under control by the end of the first half with a 3 touchdown lead. Behind Savion Ross’s 342 yard 4 TD performance, the Bulls go into a week 4 bye on a win. They hope to use this break to prepare for their conference opener against Memphis in week 5. After week 3: 2-0 Won 40-35 vs Arkansas State Arkansas State exploited the secondary of Tulsa while the Golden Hurricanes found the endzone both through the air and on the ground. This was a tight contest with Tulsa down by 3 at the half. While the second half was much lower scoring than the first, Tulsa managed to pull out the win with both teams having over 430 yards of offense each. Tulsa will try to take their momentum on the road to Washington in week 4. Losses After week 3: 0-2 Lost 24-29 at NC State ECU travelled to Raleigh in hopes of continuing their command of their yearly series with NC State. What they found was a tough opponent and a close match-up deserving of this intense in-state rivalry. A close game throughout, the Wolfpack were able to hold up defensively in the 4th quarter and take the win. ECU will try to rebound next week against Central Michigan. After week 3: 0-2 Lost 15-29 to Central Michigan Houston’s secondary had no answer for the passing attack of the Chippewas Friday night as CMU’s Byron Suggs threw for 309 yards and 3 TDs. Houston did not have the same success as Rickie Shaffer only completed 50% of his passes for 209 yards with 2 TD and 2 INTs. Houston will need to get the ball in the endzone more than twice if they expect to get a will against UCF in week 4. After week 3: 1-2 Lost 22-24 at Ole Miss While Tulane’s offense was well behind that of Ole Miss, the Green Wave was able to stick with the Rebels the whole game. In the end, Tulane’s inability to get touchdowns instead of fieldgoals turned out to be the deciding factor. Tulsa will go into the bye week on this loss and will have to use the break to prepare for their conference opener against Houston in week 5. After week 3: 0-2 Lost 18-39 vs Boston College Uconn fell behind early as they were unable to stop the rushing attack of BC’s Jordan Godson. Giving up 229 yards to Godson as well as 94 yards rushing to J.M. Gill meant that UConn was never in control of the game as the Eagles set the pace of the game. As for UConn’s offense, the story is about the same. While the Huskies were able to pass for 270 yards, Rob Andersen only completed 51% of his passes, threw 2 INTs, and was sacked twice. The run games was essentially non-existent this week with only 9 attempts for 15 yards. UConn will try to get their first win next week against Navy. After week 3: 0-2 Lost 41-31 at Clemson SMU fell behind early in what looked like a blowout until the 4th quarter. Despite the Mustang’s 21 point effort in the 4th, they couldn’t pull off the comeback against AW3 and the Tigers. The Mustangs managed good offensive numbers, but defensively they couldn’t contain Clemson’s passing attack giving up 318 yards and 3 TD in the air. SMU will try to rebound next week when they take on Texas Tech. Byes
  12. Coach alexfall862, congratulations on the close win. Even though you out-gained Utah State by 170 yards they were able to stick with you and keep the game close. Other than the penalties, what do you think allowed this to happen and how to you plan to fix it for your game against Houston?
  13. I plan on focusing more on high school recruits over JUCOs to help cover the roster better. JUCOs are great, don't get me wrong, but a kid who comes in his freshman year and stays till his junior or senior year that helps with consistency compared to a more "short-term" fix. We have some great kids this year. If we can play smart we have the tools to make some noise in the AAC. T.J. is a wonderful kid who is going to succeed at whichever team is lucky enough to steal him in the draft. He may go 5th round if a team is interested in a kicker. He's good enough to go much higher in the draft, but I don't know many coaches who are willing to take a special teams player much higher unfortunately.
