Hello there Bearcat fans. I apologize for the lengthy delay between my entries, and assure you that it won't happen again. Since the last time I wrote, about half the season has passed and a lot has transpired.
This past weekend has been the most gratifying so far this season, and not just because we got some big wins. I think the consensus is that we are starting to see what it takes in order to grind out wins in a closely contended conference. It's also good to see so many different guys contributing and bringing something positive to the table.
Personally I have been pretty busy as of late. I finished my internship at the Cincinnati Police Department and have to admit it was a great opportunity. I would like to especially thank Officer Rick Smith who took a personal interest in my well being, and who is a great example to all.
I am now beginning my last quarter as a college student, and the last half of the season. I think that both individually and as a team the best is yet to come. Look for a strong second half from the Bearcats.
