Home games in red

The Bearcats 2016 schedule has been released...


Lets break it down:

  • It is now obvious that all of the Saturday kickoffs in 2015 were a gift - in 2016, the Bearcats have 4 (1/3 of their schedule) weekday games (although 11/25 is Black Friday and typically a holiday for most).
  • The Bearcats have 7 home games (3 of which are weekday)
  • With the exception of the 10/29 game at Temple, the Bearcats get to avenge 4 of their 5 regular season losses at home - 9/5 vs Houston, 10/1 vs USF, 11/5 vs BYU, and 11/18 vs Memphis
  • This should be a favorable schedule for our Bearcats as they look to improve on a 7-6 season in 2015


As of February 9, we can commit to all home games (season tickets renewed!) + September 10 @ Purdue (the trailer IS coming) & maybe one or more of the following:

  • 10/29 @ Temple - just under 600 miles each way, would be a fun one to tailgate at...might be a flight though
  • 11/12 @ UCF - very likely, cheap flights into Sanford, FL via Allegiant + we have allies on the ground who can help with tailgate planning
  • 11/25 - @ Tulsa - why not?  Long weekend (and why else would we ever travel to Tulsa?)


Stay tuned for updates!

With some unseasonably warm weather on Super Bowl Sunday, we took the opportunity to pull the Republic of Cincinnati trailer out of storage to do a little offseason cleaning and planning.


The trailer has been parked since late November, so unforeseen horrors were expected...fortunately, everything was in pretty good shape, with the exception of some remaining items & water in one of the coolers (no mold!) and some mud on the exterior...nothing a little pressure washing couldn't fix

The UC Bearcat Football youtube account posted a new video today regarding Under Armour's adoption of the motto "Juncta Juvant" for use on Bearcats uniforms and clothing.


If you've read our About Us page, you probably guess that we fully support this and look forward to the continued growth of the Republic of Cincinnati!


Our first conference game of the season and, unfortunately, our first loss.  Definitely not what we expected, especially with the domination that our team exhibited for most of the game, but costly turnovers and some special teams excellence by Temple made the difference in the end.


Nonetheless, our 2nd week at The Grid was another success.  Despite enduring two rain storms, one with wind gusts strong enough that we nearly lost two of our canopies, we had a great crowd and got ready to cheer on our Bearcats.


Week 1 has come and gone, and our move to The Grid was a huge success!  


We arrived at The Grid shortly before 1:30 and had all hands on deck, allowing us to be set up and tailgating by about 2pm.  This was our first experience with The Grid and it was an amazing experience - not only are we much easier to find, but the visual evidence of how far Bearcats football has come in the past 10-15 years was almost emotionally overwhelming.  


The rain started as we began packing up, so we were fortunate that none of our gear got wet, but we waited out the storm in the new and improved Nippert and cheered our Bearcats on to victory!
