Cincinnati Game Sold Out

[stextbox id=”warning”] Too bad if you were planning to attend the University of Louisville-Cincinnati football game at Nippert Stadium on Oct. 24. A Queen City TV station reports that the game is sold out. For decades, Louisville fans have easily purchased tickets at the gate, often outnumbering Cincinnati partisans on their home turf.

Louisville owned Nippert.

Things have obviously changed.  UC is flying high now and its notorious bandwagon fans are doing their thing. The weekend is designated as Homecoming, and Cincinnati fans are licking their chops, very much wanting revenge for the 70-7 pasting administered by U of L at Papa John’s in 2004. [/stextbox]

    A bus from the Parrish House is going up for the game. Will know more tonight but there were a few seats still open last I heard.

    Is this what our football team has been reduced to–being the “Homecoming Queens” for every team looking for a sure victory on homecoming day? First Utah, then UC–who’s next? What’s the record for being the “Homecoming Queen” invitee? 3-4 games a year?

    How many days until basketball, Charlie?

    Basketball on back burner with everything happening in football. Stay tuned.

      Kenny Klein just told the WKRD Underdogs that Jurich and Kragthorpe have not met & neither have representatives of Jurich or Kragthorpe met. There is no press conference scheduled for any day this week.
