One of the many key lines....

The source said Cincinnati has stepped up the push to get into the ACC in light of the Big East adding Tulane as an all-sports member and East Carolina in football on Tuesday.

It is trending toward you giving your source a high five - no strangling required...still holding my breath though.

That is all well and good and great to see, but if the ACC ain't buying they ain't buying.

Too bad Speaker of the House John Boehner is a Moeller and Xavier grad. UC could use some of his political muscle on the ACC. I can almost guarantee that Sen. Mitch McConnell is using some on behalf of Louisville.

Darn good thing that Williams resigned because he was 100% committed to keeping UC in the Big East.

Coworker was listening to an unnamed Cincinnati radio station and heard that UC is going to the ACC...but it was unofficial.  Anyone listening to the radio?

Nope, you are the one in fantasy land. Bill Koch, who wrote the article, told me that when Williams said UC was 100% committed to the Big East he meant it. Koch followed up with Williams at a later date and Williams was once again 100% committed to the Big East. Williams loved NYC. One of the reasons he was asked to resign was because he spent the entire summer of this year in NYC working to keep the Big East together and UC in it.

Neither UConn or UofL currently have the votes to get invited to the ACC.

I'm guessing he was hearing about the UC making a push.

Laughable ron...really, really laughable.

Ever been interviewed by a TV/radio/newspaper?  What idiot spills his/her guts about what they're doing in totality?  President Williams did what he needed to do with the media.

Truthfully, I think you're nothing but a $hit-stirrer.  But even given that, I also know you are wrong about what UC was and wasn't 100% committed to a year ago.

When there seem to be 2 candidates for 1 slot, and neither can quite secure the needed support, a 3rd candidate may emerge as a compromise.

There are certainly ACC presidents who would want UConn over the UofL for academic rankings even if UConn football averaged 21,000 per game and had never reached a bowl. And there are ACC presidents who feel the athletics pinch and know that 99% of it is about football failures and so fear that UConn could cause league turmoil.

So Cincy is now presenting itself front and center as the compromise candidate. It has the academics, especially the endowment, to pacify all ACC presidents in that regard, and unlike UConn it is located in a state with super rich recruiting grounds for both revenue sports. And it has been a remarkably successful football program for a decade under 3 HCs. UC football has untapped potential.

We'll see.

If I were UC president the 3 things I would be doing now to make my case would be (1) try to get ND on my side, noting ND's OH and Cincinnati TV market recruiting and many subway alums, and (2) try to get UC alums to start signing agreements to buy season tickets, especially for football, if the school gets into the ACC, and (3) try to get Fortune 500 companies in Cincinnati to agree to new donations to the school should it get admitted to the ACC.

Welcome WoadBlue.

I think it is interesting that the Katz article has included elaborations on UC's sales pitch:

-------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------- ---
In making its case to the ACC, Cincinnati used a combination of athletic and academic qualifications, including how well its football and men's basketball teams have done as well as the size of its endowment and place in national rankings of top universities. Among the points Cincinnati made:

" The Bearcats were one of only six teams to finish in the top 25 of the final USA Today football and men's basketball polls (joining Michigan, Michigan State, Florida State, Baylor and Wisconsin).

" Ohio is a new and fertile recruiting ground and expands the geographic footprint of the ACC. Ohio had the fifth-most NCAA Division I football signees in 2012.

" Cincinnati's endowment is more than $1 billion, which is 26th nationally and more than six members of the ACC, and twice the size of Maryland's.

" The school is tied for 34th among public research universities, according to the Center for Measuring University Performance. That's in line with several other ACC schools.

" Cincinnati has nine Fortune 500 companies in the area plus is the 35th-ranked TV market.
-------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------- ---

Maybe I'm being too much the optimist, but ESPN always believes in excessively promoting its product. And since the ACC is 100% on ESPN, maybe this is a real good sign for us?
