Will Mick Cronin's Bearcats Ever Get A Resume Win?

One Great Season

We were a little rough on Mick Cronin in this space a week ago, and considering what happened to his Bearcats in Pittsburgh Saturday night, we have no reason to change our tune.

Cincinnati got manhandled by the Big East-leading and fourth-ranked Panthers. Not that anyone had the right to expect a UC victory on the road, but at some point, Cronin needs to put some resume wins together. With Louisville, Georgetown twice, Connecticut and even Marquette left on the schedule, there are many opportunities. If he doesn't claim a few of them, Cronin will need to fire up that home computer and update his own resume.

Cincinnati Bearcats: From 15-0 Start To 18-3 To NIT?

One Great Season

The men's basketball program at the University of Cincinnati, my beloved alma mater, is not in good shape under coach Mick Cronin. Don't let its 18 wins fool you.

The Bearcats have zero quality wins this season. And that's usually been the case under Cronin.

In his team's latest embarrassment on Saturday, Cincinnati lost its first home game of the season to West Virginia, coached by 'ol whatshisname.

5 Questions: On The Bengals, Allen Iverson And Tiger


One Great Season

+ What is going on in Cincinnati?
Just days after Rey Maualuga's high-profile DUI arrest and subsequent guilty plea, the Bengals worked out embattled Adam Jones on Thursday. Rather than trying to improve upon a nice 2009 season and build toward repeating in 2010 as AFC North champions, it looks more like the Bengals are trying to reclaim their reputation as the biggest collection of buffoons in the NFL. And there are rumors that the team is considering bringing Terrell Owens in from Buffalo? Oh my goodness.

Also in Cincinnati, the Bearcats are flaming out for the third straight February and basketball coach Mick Cronin's job is safe. That just doesn't add up.

+ Does Tiger Woods have henchmen?
How else do you explain no leakage of his alleged presence at a Mississippi sex clinic, or really anywhere else? My cousin brought this up the other day, and it seems clear that in the age of the camera phone, someone is getting some serious protection. Perhaps Tiger is handing out Buicks to those who comply with the keep-your-mouth-shut edict.

NBA Groupies

+ Which weekend is better for groupie whores?
The Super Bowl offers more crossover appeal, as stars from other sports -- and entertainment celebrities, too -- are all over the place. NBA All-Star weekend, however, is a completely light-hearted affair, so everyone, including the participants, is looking for a good time. If you're a large-breasted gal, pack your tightest tops because you will no doubt get some attention.

+ Why are "Allen Iverson" and "All-Star Game" being used in the same sentence?
Speaking of this weekend's big event in Dallas, I was surprised to hear the news about Allen Iverson Thursday. Certainly I hope his family issue will get resolved, but he has no business being in the All-Star game in the first place. I realize he was voted in, and that certainly speaks to a certain amount of popularity, but Iverson hasn't been a star in a few years.

+ What's the difference between a catastrophe and a disappointment?
Ask North Carolina basketball coach Roy Williams, who recently implied that his Heels' awful season has been catastropic, much like, the earthquake in Haiti that has left more than 200,000 dead. Clearly, Williams turned some behind-the-scenes PR advice into a public apology after the statement.
