Enquirer reporter Bill Koch joins me on the podcast this week. If you haven't read Bill's five-part series on the state of UC athletics, stop and do so now. It's required reading for any Bearcats fan at this point.
Bill joins as we talk about what he discovered chatting with nearly every figure involved in creating the past, present and future of UC athletics. We also delve into the optimism, frustration and general awkwardness that comes with maneuvering through such a difficult landscape as that which evolved over the last few years.
Of course, the conversation tangents to cookies, golden quote nuggets and spurned girlfriends, but was as informative as any podcast you will hear anywhere in covering the state of the program.
A return to the New Media Suite with Tom Gelehrter, the Bearcats director of new media and broadcasting for our first offseason podcast of the year.
We discuss Andy Reid's Bearcats farm system, Travis Kelce, Jermaine Lawrence, Gunner Kiel, Bennie Coney, Mitch Pattishall and leave plenty of time to go tangential talking about Kansas City stories, Tommy G dissing my cornhole tournament plus the potential Skippycast.
New Media and Broadcasting director Tom Gelehrter joins me again for the latest Inside the Bearcats Podcast. We range in topics from the opportunity at hand for baseball at GABP this weekend, address the outlook of the 2013-14 Bearcats basketball team and talk about who impressed us at spring football.
Of course, we devolved off the beaten path this week to plan an Inside the Bearcats podcast road trip edition to Sweden for the Midsummer festival (to which Shane Harrison so beautifully dramatized above), fitting sausage endorsements and discuss the intricacies of the Tommy G shuttle service.

With such a big stage as the NCAA Tournament, it's only fair to bring the biggest Inside The Bearcats Podcast of the season -- by far. Tommy G and I anchor the pod as I bring in Voice of the Bearcats Dan Hoard, NBC Sports Senior Writer for College Basketball Talk Rob Dauster and hear from assistant coach Darren Savino.
We all discuss this weekend's trip to play Creighton in Philadelphia plus all the other topics surrounding UC and the Big Dance.
As with any special episode, there needs to be special artwork thanks to Video Shane Harrison. Thanks, Shane. Really made this look prestigious.
ESPN1530 Host Mo Egger joins me again this time as we take a look at the Big East Tournament, the Bearcats chances to make a run, what it means for their NCAA Tournament status and how the tournament helped legitimize the reincarnation of UC basketball.
Of course, we also spend the first 15 minutes discussing which of the 16 conference tournaments we would most like to attend and least like to attend this week which requires openly debating the pros and cons of Missoula, Mont. Plus, Mo takes a phone call, discusses the unhealthy disdain for Gerry McNamara.
As always, make sure you are reading Mo's blog here and listening to him from 3-6 p.m. this week on ESPN1530. You can also catch him on the weekends on national ESPN radio.
My friend and yours, New Media and Broadcasting Director Tom Gelehrter returns to his regular spot on the podcast this week as we recap all the behind-the-scenes from the trip to Louisville, rank who we think would be the best first-round matchup for the Big East tournament, swap stories about seniors Cashmere Wright and JaQuon Parker as well as break down the newly-released football schedule.
Of course, we devolve into other topics such as cookie attendants, the likely current condition of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony and Tommy uses his power to crush a social-media trend.
As always, follow all the video work of Tommy and the team right here at GoBearcats.com including updates from spring football, basketball media availabilities and every other sport at UC.

The latest edition of the Fox Sports Ohio Podcast welcomes pod newbie Kevin Goheen, the newest writer for FSO based out of Southwest Ohio. He joins the FSO team after 15 years spent covering sports in the area, including the Bengals beat writer for the Post from 2001-07.
He's been tracking the Bearcats all season and especially since jumping on the job a few weeks back. We talk about the travails of being a prep cross country writer, how to UC can shake the current negative momentum, the Bearcats relative to the bubble, Kevin's sights and sounds from his time spent with Bearcats at the combine, George Winn=Alfred Morris, Travis Kelce=Rob Gronkowksi and we also break down the life and times of Lil' Dawg the most famous bobblehead in Cincinnati media.
If you are looking for a specific topic, the basketball convo ends around 18 minutes and the final 18 minutes flip to the football Bearcats conversation.
Welcome to the latest edition of the Inside the Bearcats Podcast. Today I welcome back Tom Gelerhter, our resident New Media and Broadcasting director as myself and Tommy G talk about the behind the scenes of the basketball team's big win against Villanova, the resiliency of a battered group, the addition of a baseball game at GABP, Signing Day extras with Tommy Tuberville and, most importantly, the Harlem Shake.
For those who don't know what the Harlem Shake is, it's taking over The Interwebbings. Here are some examples. We spend about the first seven minutes discussing what will be a forthcoming UC edition and what makes a great Harlem Shake.
On the latest edition of the Inside the Bearcats Podcast we go national as I welcome back Rob Dauster, senior college basketball writer for NBC Sports' College Basketball Talk. Many of you will remember Rob and his partner in college basketball crime Troy Machir from last year when they ran the college hoops blog Ballin' Is A Habit and made an 18-day trek across the country to take in the best games/locations in the middle of January.
During that trek they sat down with me and while we recording a podcast talking basketball and eating lunch at Montgomery Inn Ribs. Without the draw of offering their first foray into the beauty that is Montgomery Inn, I was still able to bring Rob back today as we talked about his move from BIAH to NBC Sports, late-night West Coast tweeting, the national view of UC, ranking the Big East conference teams, why people need to stop talking about college basketball being "a" shambles and how watching six basketball games at once can place a strain on your relationship.
The Podcast returns as I sit down and chat with Tommy G following UC's 62-54 victory over Rutgers. One of the more entertaining podcasts in the history of the ITBP. Really, I can explain the podcast all I want, really this incredible artist
rendering of all the topics covered by our guy Shane Harrison explains
As for my attempt to explain, we flip the script on Mr. Gelehrter as we take the questions he's been peppering to the freshman and sophomore players in his Know Your Bearcats series and play Know Your New Media and Broadcasting Director. Before that we touch on the stress of buying new glasses, the #JustinJacksonMeanFace Twitter contest/subsequent prize package the wild goose chase for a bike on Wednesday night and, of course, Fred Savage.
We also talk plenty of Bearcats, we hear from Mick Cronin while talking about mentoring players, the first/second half debate, Cashmere Wright and plans for National Signing Day including the possible return of critically acclaimed Fax Cam!
If you aren't interested in all our delightful, witty banter you can scroll to the 6:40 mark when we delve into UC hoops, though, I can't think of a reason you would want to do so.
