  • Down The Drive: The Top Three Food Courts in the American Athletic Conference

    Everyone knows that the American Athletic Conference is the conference with the best student center food courts in college football.

    Here are my three favorites. I was going to make it my five favorite but I only had eight minutes before work to write this.

    This place has all the heavy hitters: Starbucks, Chick Fil-A, Einstein Brothers and a flyover country-style pizza place. The food here is probably healthy and probably pretty good. Whatever you need, they've got.

    I'm not sure what a Mondo Sub is, but it sounds pretty tasty. The ice cream at Shasta's Cones looks pretty outstanding too.

  • Down The Drive: With Zach Harvey Committed, the Bearcats are Built for 2019 and Beyond

    Recruiting is always important but it has been even more imperative this year for the Cincinnati Bearcats. For the last couple months, John Brannen and his staff have been attempting to rebuild the team following the departure of head coach Mick Cronin as well as several notable players such as Nysier Brooks, Logan Johnson, Rashawn Fredericks and Eliel Nsoseme. As the spring transformed into summer, the Bearcats have added a great deal of new talent but the program's biggest addition may have just made his commitment, as four-star shooting guard Zach Harvey announced his intention to play for the Bearcats yesterday.

  • Cincinnati.com: American Athletic Conference unlikely to replace UConn in football

    Fletcher Page, fpage@enquirer..com

    Initial conversations this week among league officials and representatives from member schools indicate the American Athletic Conference is unlikely to replace UConn, a source with close ties to the league told The Enquirer.

    While the Huskies leaving for the Big East Conference diminishes the AAC's basketball brand, the conference will likely remain at 11 football-member schools because, despite speculation among national media outlets about potential additions on the gridiron, there doesn't appear to be a school that would agree to join and add value to the league.

  • Down The Drive: An American Athletic Conference Perspective for the 2019 NBA Draft

    I have a friend. Let's call him Chris. Every year he puts together his "big board" for the NBA Draft. He watches game tape on YouTube, crunches the numbers and puts together an expansive mock draft evaluating all the players. Very few people ever see this big board. However, it does make for (relatively) exciting times while watching the draft.

    On Thursday, I will be going to Chris' house to watch the NBA Draft and from a Cincinnati Bearcats perspective, there isn't a whole lot to get excited about. That's actually a good thing, although it would be nice if graduated seniors Justin Jenifer and Cane Broome had a chance at having their name called.
