Are the Glory Days for Cincinnati Bearcat Football Over?

Let’s be honest, we’re living in the greatness long stretches of UC football.

No doubt, there are a few fanatics (each of you 12) that could contend that UC has a celebrated past harkening back to Sid Gillman and Greg Cook, yet trust me, no stalwart school football fan really thinks about UC football by and large. Notwithstanding, UC football has had a really fair altercation ongoing years and momentarily caught the country’s consideration in 2009 with Brian Kelly’s mystical ride that momentarily placed them in the image for a public title (until they got punked by Virginia Tech in the Orange Bowl). That achievement, combined with not many 10 or more win seasons and several Big East titles (2011 would have been Big East title #3 in the event that Zach Colloros was not harmed), has placed UC football on the guide at any rate. Once more, nobody is losing rest in Tuscaloosa or Norman, however UC football is essentially in the discussion.

So with this achievement and a college organization apparently dedicated to keeping it fruitful, for what reason does the future look so desolate for UC football?

All things considered, where do we start…

Like everything throughout everyday life, everything boils down to the Benjamin’s. Follow the cash and you’ll have your responses.

UC’s new ascent is all attached to its alliance with the Big East Conference. Contend assuming you will that the feeble sauce Big East ought to have never had Automatic Qualifying status in the BCS (an exceptionally legitimate contention, btw!), but since it did, it set UC ready to transform ’08 and ’09 and has prepared it for future achievement IF the meeting can make due and keep up with its status as one of the six BCS gatherings with a programmed billet in the title series and every one of the incomes and glory that accompany it.

Nonetheless, all signs in the previous year are highlighting the Big East NOT keeping up with this favored status (save for one redeeming quality, which I will get to in a second). The school football realignment cesspool that has uncovered all BCS individuals to be only insatiable cash prostitutes with no loyalty to customary gathering opponents and accomplices (Missouri to the SEC, Syracuse in the ACC), has left the all around seriously tested Big East incredibly defenseless against missing out.

I won’t exhaust you with clandestine subtleties of how the BCS decides its gatherings to grant programmed qualifying status (I got exceptionally lightheaded – snide journalists get confounded effectively), yet obviously, the Big East doesn’t come up looking awesome. In its urgency to add a few teeth and support its serious accreditations subsequent to losing Syracuse, West Virginia, and Pitt, adding Boise State unquestionably helps, however as indicated by ESPN BCS master Brad Edwards, the option of the Broncos will in any case not be to the point of meeting the dinky rules set out by the BCS. The expansion of small time player upstarts UCF, Memphis, Houston, San Diego State, SMU and Navy doesn’t do anything also.

Further confounding the circumstance is the BCS’s most up to date try to make the much yearned for school football season finisher (school football fans will be exceptionally frustrated in how little it addresses). While every one of the subtleties presently can’t seem to be worked out, a few issues are now set up, and once more, the Big East isn’t in an advantageous position. The season finisher will be attached to the significant dishes, and though the Big 10, Pac 12, Big 12, SEC, and ACC have fallen in line with significant UFABET dishes for their boss, the Big East has no arrival place for its champion.

So goes the Big East, so goes UC football.

What was once UC’s greatest strength (a BCS gathering with programmed qualifying status, a public stage, and feeble rivalry making them generally a competitor) is currently their greatest weight. Furthermore, there isn’t a lot of UC can do about it. With its little, classical arena, absence of chronicled importance, and somewhat little fan base, UC won’t get an escape prison card like WVU, Pitt, and The Cuse and get a welcome to another gathering.

UC is stuck.

Be that as it may, lo and see, everything isn’t totally lost for UC and the Big East. However it’s mixture of small time players and Boise State doesn’t actually get ones heart dashing, it has one variable exceptionally pined for by the pimps who run school football-it makes a ton of possible eyeballs as TV markets in its disconnected, ludicrous geographic impression.

While Houston, SDSU and SMU may be viewed as homecoming grub for some, BCS schools, joined with Rutgers, UConn, South Florida, and Cincinnati, the Big East conceivably has a heap of potential TV sets that TV freedoms holders get all worked up by. Toward the day’s end, isn’t that what all the slutty furor of meeting realignment has been about at any rate?
