You know whats getting old. Not being picked 4th in the Media's Big East pre season poll. Thats just, whatever. Whats getting old is having to feign outrage at the selection. Every year it seems that UC get slotted around 4th or 5th in the pre season and every year the public at large is stunned when the Bearcats wind up winning 10 games and finishing near the top of the conference standings. Of course the only time the Media has gone all in with the Bearcats (relatively) was 2010, also known as the season that didn't really happen. I have a strong feeling that the Bearcats will make another run at double digit wins and a Big East Crown this year, but this is a sentiment not widely held outside of Bearcat Nation. This is how the voting shook out.
