I had some judge in '10 at UC, the President of Ireland at Michigan State in '12, and finally Seth Meyers at Northwestern in '16.

No joke, Bill Cosby 2001

Ditto here - Bill Cosby who talked about racial equality in Cincy. Note he did not talk about gender equality.

My graduation in 1989 was the first event held in the Shoemaker Center.

I think our speaker was whoever was mayor of Cincinnati at that time.

The standard nightly tour of Uncle Woodys, In the Wood, and JCs followed up with foos at Papa Dinos (unless we decided to go back to the house and wake someone up to drive us to Skyline )

RE: Random Thoughts From Bearcat Nation
We loved JC's. It was known as a frat place, but we ignored those guys. However, we loved the free peanuts (everyday at first, that only on certain nights by graduation), but mostly we liked the beer being served in Mason jars. The shoddy wood floor also reminded us of bars in Mercer county.

JC's had the most dangerous feature I can recall, as the restroom was in the basement, and the steps were both short and covered in slippery paint. You could count on seeing someone take the fall every night.

Also, I must have been part of hundreds of rounds of kamikaze's there.

Sometimes in my free time, I like to picture historic venues reconfigured to accommodate international futbol standards (ex. Wrigley Field, Lambeau Field, Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, Rose Bowl, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Churchill Downs, Wimbledon Stadium, Old Course at St. Andrews, etc.).

Well, St. Andrews is a Scottish National Park, I have literally seen a dog **** on the Road Hole's green...and I'm pretty sure the Rose Bowl, Coliseum, and Wrigley have all hosted soccer games.

I really just wonder where Doss' helicopter lands on gameday, or is there a building on campus with a hidden hangar Richie Rich style?

Oh Human Geography...the boosting your GPA for Scholarship Renewal course. So many fraternity brothers would hop on that one late just to maintain GPA reqs.

During our time that class was Danny Ransohoff's Urban Lobbying. Danny brought in great speakers from Jerry Springer (just after he passed the bad check to a hooker) to some KKK nut-job.
