Random Thoughts From Bearcat Nation
Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. When does football camp start?

Post your random thoughts on anything Cincinnati Bearcats here. I remember throwing an aerobie on Nippert's turf with my Daniels Hall mates back in 1987. I also remember the 17 year cicada outbreak on campus that same year and students were carrying badminton and tennis rackets to class. You could hear girls screaming as they were swarmed or dive bombed. Damn winged, black things with red eyes were everywhere. We had a nerd genius on our dorm floor and one of his roommates let loose a jar full of 'em in his bed while he was sleeping. The screams were unreal. I need a large Adriaticos right now.

RE: Random Thoughts From Bearcat Nation
Brilliant topic. Keeping it random, and keeping it next door to Adriatico's (I believe), I first hung out on campus in the late 80s, when I was still in high school. Some UC students we knew from Anderson were somehow involved with Mr. Tuxedo on W. McMillan. They used throw all-you-can-drink parties ($3? $5?) that were heavily populated with east side high school kids. I was 16, and looked 12, but was somehow allowed to hang out and imbibe. For some reason, that memory came back to me this weekend. I'm also pretty sure that rath was behind those parties.

Ok. I'll confess. Daniels Hall was like living in freegin' Amsterdam. I don't know how I survived my freshman year but I did manage to get some studying in too. How the young body recovered from a night of partying in those days was a marvel to behold that won't ever be seen again. As a 19 year old I definitely took on my vices. I have long been reformed - thank the Lord.

Oh, and for all the morons that pulled the effin fire alarm at 3 AM during cold weather - you really sucked! I remember a few times we ignored the alarm and stayed in our rooms because it happened so frequently.

My first game at the Shoe as a student was in December, 1990 against Michigan State and we lost by two. I remember Jud Heathcote got heckled by the crowd on his way out after the game ended.
