"I think the fans will be more hyped for the game than we are," Gates said, "especially some of those older guys that were on that team. If I know Cincinnati, which I do know Cincinnati people, they’re gonna be riled up just as much as us."

"They pose tremendous matchup problems because of the way Deshaun Thomas is playing lately," Cronin said. "He has been off the charts the times I’ve seen him.

Containing Thomas will probably fall to the JaQuon Parker, Justin Jackson combo. Parker has proven that he can handle guys with length, but Thomas is the most polished of the group offensively.

Baseball's Late Rally Comes Up Short at Butler - University of Cincinnati Official Athletics Site

Trailing 7-2 in the top of the eighth, junior first baseman Kiley Jones (Louisville, Ky./Eastern) shrunk the deficit to three runs at 7-4 with a two-run home run to left field, his first dinger since Feb. 26, 2010. After back-to-back singles from sophomore second baseman Ryan Quinn (Sparta, N.J./Sparta) and junior centerfielder Jake Proctor (Cincinnati, Ohio/Oak Hills), freshman designate hitter Taylor Schmidt (Pittsburgh, Pa./North Hills) brought the Bearcats to within two runs with a bloop single to left center, which scored Quinn and saw Proctor hustle from first base to third.

The loss drops the Bearcats record to 8-10 on the year and is the 4th loss in a row. #2 and unbeaten Kentucky comes into the Schott today at 4. Thats probably something cool if you like baseball.

The NCAA Tournament, College Football, And Bad Action Movies: You're Getting More - SBNation.com

College football, however, ends its season like this. You watch 10, maybe 20 television shows at once for four months. Then, at the end, the characters are all transferred to different shows based on performance. These characters then perform one pilot episode of each show. One of the highest Nielsen-ranked teams faces another in a prime time slot, and then we decide based on a vote of TV critics and dozing elderly dialysis patients* who No. 1 is.

That is probably the best/most abstract/accurate description of the college football system ever. Read the whole thing, it nails down why substantive change is never going to come to college Football.
