    Skip to main content

    University of Cincinnati basketball head coach John Brannen will be inducted into the Marshall University Athletics Hall of Fame, the school announced Saturday.

    As a senior in 1997, Brannen, named the Bearcats' head coach in April, was first-team All-Southern Conference and led the league with 20.9 points per game. He was also named the 1997 Southern Conference Tournament MVP despite the Thundering Herd losing to Chattanooga, 71-70, in the conference finals and missing out on the NCAA Tournament.

    "You knew when you walked into practice what you were going to get every single day," former Marshall coach Greg White told The Enquirer earlier this year.

    Yesterday was my last day as site manager at Down the Drive. After more than three years of leading the site and covering everything from American Athletic Conference basketball titles to a stunning run to the NCAA baseball tournament this past spring, I decided it was time to take a step back.

    You'll still see me around the site as I'll be a regular contributor but for now, the site will be under new direction. I'd like to thank all the contributors who I have worked with over the last few years, especially Clayton Trutor, who has written some of the best content the site has produced in my time as manager and been an irreplaceable part of the staff.

  • 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.
