UC abandons plan to play home games at Paul Brown Stadium

The University of Cincinnati football program’s two-year experiment of playing football games in an NFL stadium has not met the expected financial increase it was seeking.

Head football coach Butch Jones and athletic director Whit Babcock say that the players preferred playing on campus at 35,000-seat Nippert Stadium rather than traveling downtown to play in the Bengals 65,000-seat stadium.

The Bearcats played the Oklahoma game there in 2010 and two Big East games in 2011 at PBS trying to help them attract fans, recruits and profile the program better. Those games only attracted between 40,000 to 42,000 fans.

Cincinnati suspends Gates, Ellis, Mbodj & Guyn for roles in brawl

CINCINNATI – The University of Cincinnati today announced the suspension of four men’s basketball student-athletes for their participation in a fight that brought a premature end to Saturday’s game at Xavier University.

Yancy Gates, Octavius Ellis and Cheikh Mbodj will each be suspended for a total of six games and Ge’Lawn Guyn for one game. The suspensions will take effect immediately and will be concurrent with the NCAA-standard one-game mandated suspensions that would be applied to Gates and Mbodj for ejections from the game for fighting.

“After reviewing all available video and giving due deliberation to the seriousness of this behavior, we have decided to take these actions,” said UC athletic director Whit Babcock. “We want to deal with this in a prompt and direct manner and send the message that we will not tolerate this from those who have the privilege of representing the University of Cincinnati.”

“We have advised the BIG EAST Conference of our decision and the measures we’re taking. I’m thankful for the full support of (UC) President (Gregory H.) Williams and (UC men’s basketball head coach) Mick Cronin.”

“Further, I want to apologize to our students, alumni, faculty and staff, as well as to our fans and community. We hold our student-athletes to a very high standard and take very seriously the role that our entire department plays in reflecting the overall image of this great university. We will continue to work diligently to represent the Bearcat family and the Cincinnati community in a first-class manner. There will be zero tolerance for a repeat of this behavior.”
