Cincinnati Bearcats Tabbed For 2nd In American Pre Season Poll

US PRESSWIRE

Louisville was the runaway pre season favorite, as expected.

Here are the results of the media poll as per Card Chronicle.

1. Louisville (28)
2. Cincinnati (2)
3. Rutgers
4. UCF
5. USF
6. Houston
7. UConn
8. SMU
9. Temple
10. Memphis

No idea who the dissenting voices among the AAC media types are, but they should be applauded for their efforts. This feels like makes the 151st 9th time that UC has not been predicted to win the conference since joining from conference USA. In that time the Bearcats have won shares of four conference titles, two outright.

Oh well, the only thing left to do is to play the games and see where things settle in the end. My opinion is already known, even though I tire of the beating the drum for respect which seems to be an inherent part of being a Bearcat these days. Keep in mind there are only 32 more days until kick off against Purdue. Thats your warm thought for the day.
