Bearcats Breakfast 5.3.12

| No TrackBacks
Going to keep this brief today. If you're looking for a lusty Breakfast, check back to yesterday's which took a few unexpected loquacious turns for a random Wednesday in May.

A few stories out today, Bearcats fans need to read. The first from Dan Hoard on Tony Pike's opportunity with the Bengals. Cincinnati invited Pike, along with UC product Reuben Haley, to a tryout at their minicamp next week.

Pike is coming off a season where he was waived early by the Carolina Panthers on an injury settlement. He had elbow surgery and finally feels back to health. The combo Bengals/Bearcats fans in the city have been clamoring for Pike to receive a chance at PBS since his draft in 2010. Here it is. He says his arm strength and accuracy are back to where they belong and with a quality showing he'll receive an invite to training camp in July. There, he could compete with Zach Robinson for the third QB job.

The numbers and accomplishments of Pike at UC are off the charts. He threw the most famous pass in UC football history and led them to unprecedented heights.

Of course, any excuse to show this, I will take. Best of luck to Pike next weekend.

--- A second story comes
from Bill Koch and though I have heard from many of you that Kerry Coombs means nothing here anymore and nobody wants to read about someone who left the program, I still find his story compelling. He meant so much to UC for five years and gave a lot to this program, his comments on the love he still owns for the school and why he's currently at Ohio State show the reality of the situation and Bill does a great job creating context.

--- Check back to
later today as our guy Tommy G posts a conversation with new Rams RB Isaiah Pead.

--- In the mean time, the weather out there makes me feel like playing this video.
