The Connecticut Huskies traveled to Cincinnati Saturday looking for their first win of the season.

But like most teams, UConn found out it is tough to win at UC’s Nippert Stadium.

The Bearcats made it tough all day for the Huskies who are now 0-6, 0-2 in the new American Athletic Conference.

The loss also ruined the homecoming of UConn interim head coach T.J. Weist, who was an assistant coach for the Bearcats the past three seasons under Butch Jones who left to become the head man at Tennessee.

Weist took over after the fourth game this season when Paul Pasqualoni was fired.

Cincinnati QB Brendon Kay keeps getting better each game. He has played a “best”  game each time out this season. Saturday afternoon, he tied a career high in touchdown passes with four while completing 17 of 24 passes for 300 yards. Kay also rushed for a touchdown for 5-2, 2-1 Cincinnati.

There have been reports on radio talks and in news reports that Free Agent outfielder Nick Swisher will be touring the Cleveland Indians and Progressive Field today.

The Cleveland Indians need a starting right fielder after trading Shin Soo Choo last week to Cincinnati in exchange for Drew Stubbs who’ll play center field.

Swisher, a native of Columbus, Ohio and the son of former MLB catcher Steve Swisher, played for the New York Yankees last season where he hit 24 homers.

Swisher’s career totals include: a .256 batting average with 209 homers, 673 RBI’s with 1,085 base hits.

The Atlantic Coast Conference has raided the Big East again.

On Wednesday, the presidents and chancellors unanimously voted to add Louisville as a replacement for Maryland.

Maryland announced last week that it would be joining the Big Ten in 2014.

The ACC also considered two other Big East schools, Cincinnati and Connecticut.

 

Adding the Cardinals brings the ACC to 14 full members, with former Big East rivals Pittsburgh and Syracuse joining conference play in 2013.

Louisville will be the seventh Big East school to leave for the ACC in the last 10 years.

Obviously, by adding Notre Dame, Pittsburgh, Syracuse and Louisville in the past 15 months has made the ACC even stronger in football and especially in basketball.

 

 

Reds talking new contract with Broxton as closer; move would allow Chapman to start

There are rumors out of Cincinnati that the Reds have had substantial contract talks about retaining reliever Jonathan Broxton with a multiyear deal.

If the Reds can sign him, they’ll be able to move Aroldis Chapman to the starting rotation with Johnny Cueto, Mat Latos, Bronson Arroyo and Homer Bailey.

The Reds acquired Broxton from the Kansas City Royals in the July trading deadline. He was 3-3 with a 2.82 ERA and saved four games in six opportunities for the NL Central Division Championship team.

Broxton is also talking to other teams to find a good fit, but he is giving the Reds the first opportunity to sign him.

Notre Dame leaving Big East for ACC; Football stays an Independent

To no one’s surprise, Notre Dame will be leaving the Big East Conference for the Atlantic Coast Conference in all sports but football. The ACC announced on Wednesday that the catholic university will play five football games every year against the league’s programs but will be a full member in all other sports.

The league also said that it is increasing its exit fees for the conference’s schools to three times the annual operating budget, which would be more than $50 million.

With this development, the Big East seems to be in trouble as far as a basketball conference goes.

They’ve lost Syracuse and Pittsburgh to the ACC, and West Virginia to the Big 12, now a national brand in Notre Dame and the retirement of Jim Calhoun at Connecticut, basketball seems to have taken a hit. Only Louisville, Cincinnati, Villanova and Georgetown are left.

But the Big East has added Memphis, Temple, SMU, Houston and Central Florida. Of that group, only Memphis and Temple have strong basketball programs.
