Top 10 Moments in Cincinnati Sports

Cincinnati has had a lot of great moments in sports throughout history and I’m going to counting down the top 10 of those moments from baseball to hockey the history of Cincinnati sports has it all.

10.) Sam Wyche makes a bold statement


At a Cincinnati Bengals game on December 19th 1989, the refs made a questionable call and the fans responded horrible. They began to throw beer bottles and other trash on the field directed towards the refs and the Seahawk players, who refused to play again until it was safe. Then Bengals head coach Sam Wyche took the microphone and told the stadium that they don’t live in Cleveland and quit acting like you do.

9.) Freezer Bowl


On January 10th 1982 the Cincinnati Bengals played in the AFC Championship Game, a game that would later be coined the name The Freezer Bowl. The temperature was -9 degrees Fahrenheit, they were playing the San Diego Chargers. The Bengals won the game 27-7 and went on to their first Super Bowl appearance.

8.) Cyclones winning the Kelly Cup.


In 2010 the Cincinnati Cyclones won their second Kelly Cup in three years, which is the semi-pro hockey leagues equivalent to the NHL Championship. They defeated the Idaho Steelheads 2-1 to become only the third ECHL team to win more than one championship in franchise history.

7.) Tom Browning’s perfect game


On September 16th, 1988 Tom Browning tossed a perfect game against the LA Dodgers. This was the first perfect game in Cincinnati Reds history and to this day is the only one ever thrown by a Reds pitcher.

6.) UC playing in the Final Four


In 1992 UC made their first appearance in over 25 years in the NCAA Final Four, sadly they fell to Michigan 76-72, but head coach BOB Huggans said there would be more Final Fours to come in the future of UC.

5.) Pete Rose hits 4192


On September 11th, 1985 Pete Rose made history in Cincinnati by breaking Ty Cobb’s all time hit record of 4191. The hit came against the Sand Diego Padres, and there were a long line of celebrations that occurred after his single to left-center field.

4.) UC going to the Sugar Bowl


In 2010 the Cincinnati Bearcats made an appearance in the Allstate Sugar Bowl, they faced off against the University of Florida. The Bearcats lost to the Gators 48-17, but they did not take away their great 2009-10 season.

3.) Bengals going to their first Super Bowl


In 1982 the Cincinnati Bengals made their first Super Bowl appearance, they had an outstanding season in 1981-82 going 12-4 and their famous chant ‘who dey’ was invented. Sadly the fell to the 49’ers in the final second

2.) Reds go wire to wire


In the 1990 season the Reds were destined for greatness, with their No. 1 preseason ranking. The Reds were able to sustain this ranking all the way through the year and came out on top World Series champs, sweeping the Oakland A’s. This was the Reds first World Series win since they went back to back in ’75 and ’76.

1.) UC back to back National Champions.


In 1961 and ’62 the UC Men’s Basketball team won back to back national championships. In both appearances in the title games, the defeated Ohio State, and their 1961 victory marked the first National Championship in school history. The Bearcats were coached by Ed Jucker.


UC Basketball Preview


UC Men’s basketball kicked of their season with an exhibition game vs Carleton a team from Canada. UC won this match up 77-63 and will play in their final exhibition game against Bellarmine University on November 2nd. With senior guard Sean Kilpatrick, the Bearcats have a very strong and skillful leader for this season. Kilpatrick said that he believes the move from the Big East isn’t that bad because now they have easier in-conference play, Big East was the best basketball conference and it was tough to play in said Kilpatrick in an interview with Yahoo Sports.

For the 2013-14 season the Bearcats are returning a core of experienced players along with 5 new freshman. With Cashmere Wright gone the point guard position falls to junior Ge’Lawn Guyn, he has never started a game for UC and averages only 2.3 points. If he struggles at the position the role will probably fall to one of the freshman. One of the things Cincinnati struggled with last season was making shots near the basket and that’s exactly what senior forwards, Justin Jackson and Titus Rubles, have been working on in the off season along with bulking up. All the seniors on this years roster need to work on becoming leaders for all the young players on the team. I look forward to seeing how this season turns out for the Bearcats.


Bengals Crush the Jets


In all the games I’ve watched the Bengals have never played that good, their defense looked like it could stop any offense in the league and their offense was clicking every way it could. The Bengals beat the Jets 49-9, and kept a team out of the end zone for a second time this year. With the offense rolling and scoring 2 defensive touchdowns in the second half we could have steam rolled over anybody on Sunday. Marvin Jones, the second year receiver from the University of California had a career game on Sunday. Scoring 4 touchdowns, breaking a franchise record, and having 122 yards receiving; Marvin Jones showed defensive coordinators around the league what happens when you focus a little to much on number 18.

The Bengals looked like a super bowel team on Sunday, with Dalton calling audibles at the line of scrimmage and being able to control the offense like that and our defense still making plays even after battling injuries to our defensive backs, Taylor Mays and Leon Hall, and linebacker Rey Maualuga, who will be out 3-4 weeks with a concussion and a knee injury. Those injuries gave a shot to a few young stars and really showed that we had depth in many positions. As a diehard Bengals fan and week to week almost having a panic attack with all the close games, it was a good feeling to see my Bengals finally whoop up on a team like they did. WHO DEY!!


Reds Hire New Manager

The Reds have fired Dusty Baker after 6 years and 3 playoff appearances, the Reds wanted more from their manager. In those 3 playoff appearances the Reds have yet to advance in the playoffs. Dusty’s replacement is the Reds former pitching coach Bryan Price, he had been Cincinnati’s pitching coach since 2010, and after Dusty was let go he was automatically a thought in the organizations mind. The Cincinnati Reds considered many options around the The three other options they were thinking about were; Joe Morgan, Joe Girardi, or Jim Riggleman (Triple A Manager).

In the end they decided to stay inside the organization with Bryan Price. Price never pitched in the MLB but he did pitch in the minors for the Angels and Mariners. He became a pitching coach in 2000 for the Mariners then in 2007 he went to the Arizona Diamondbacks as their pitching coach and then in 2010 he became the pitching coach for the Cincinnati Reds and they finally gave him his first Manager job. Bryan Price will be the 61st manager in the Reds organization.

The feeling in the Reds community is 50/50 on what they think of Cincinnati hiring Bryan Price as the new Manger. Some people have told me that they are no longer Reds fans and others have said they cant wait for April to come around in 2014 because this is going to be our year. For me, I have been a life long Reds fan and we cheer for my team and hope for the best with this new manager.
