Dear UC Community,
Given the recent developments in athletics conference realignment, I want our Bearcat family to know that we are not only closely monitoring the situation but also working proactively to protect and serve the best interests of the University. Our message to the broader community is that UC is firmly committed to competing at the highest level, both on and off the field. From our research profile to our number of national merit scholars, UC stands tall as one of the top public research universities in the nation. Moreover, we are building a remarkable amount of momentum, as evidenced by our 17 spot leap in the U.S. News & World Report ranking over the past two years. Also impressive is the heightened success of our athletic programs. Last year, for instance, UC ended the season with top 25 finishes in both football and basketball--a fact that only five other schools in the country can claim. Plus, the academic success of our student-athletes has never been stronger. In short, UC has a terrific story to tell, and we will not miss an opportunity to share our aspirations and accomplishments with our peers. During this time of fast-paced developments, as well as widespread rumors, I respectfully ask for your patience and understanding. Please know that we are doing all that we can to secure the best outcome for UC. I deeply appreciate the input and support of our loyal fans as well as the tremendous efforts of our teams, coaches, student-athletes and athletic director.
Santa J. Ono President

I have tremendous faith in his abilities.I still think our spot will open up after the Big 12 expands again. The Big 12 will grab some ACC schools and we'll eventually roll into the ACC with Louisville and USF. I'd prefer the Big 12, but they seem to fancy a few ACC programs.

I'm sure he's doing everything he can though.Our situation is very reliant on a lot of others. Got to appreciate the school and the president reaching out to try to get people off ledges at least.
