Bearcats Breakfast 8.1.12

| No TrackBacks
Media day wrapped up yesterday and I have all the links to the pertinent information you need. And there was no better place to start than with Dan Hoard and UC video staff.

--- They spoke with Butch Jones here. The quote that kept ringing in my head after was Jones calling Walter Stewart the face of the program. Pressure has mounted on Walt like never before and he must have an incredible season both on the field and in the locker room for this team to make it four BE titles in five years.

-- The Bearcats were picked fourth in the Big East poll, Dan gauges reactions from Maalik Bomar, Austen Bujnoch and Stewart in this piece. Dan also points out UC has finished above its preseason ranking six of the last seven years. I ran these numbers for you earlier this month and mentioned them yesterday, but just one more time for you to remember and sound smart at parties this weekend, UC was picked fifth in 2011, third in 2009 and fifth in 2008. All three years they earned at least a share of the title.

--- Dan also posted this blog on the state of the Big East. Great points about the optimism emanating from Providence, RI.
