Bearcats and Buckeye Day at the Ohio State House
First saw this a couple weeks ago, but we are representing the statehouse along with OSU to address public college funding at the Statehouse for the second year in the row. We are continuing to outpace the other public schools in the state as the #2 all around voice in the state (Miami U. is higher ranked, Kent State is nearly just as big, Ohio U is Harvard on the Hocking, but we are the best total package).

Headed to the State House on this #TravelTuesday for the 2nd Annual Bearcats and Buckeyes day! It is going to be a great day.

The Buckeyes have the absolute stupidest looking mascot in the country. I've always thought that but seeing Brutus standing next to the Bearcat mascot makes him look even worse than I thought.

I don't know man... Penn State looks like someone was asked to design the mascot, forgot about it and turned it in at the last second hoping to get a passing great.

Agree it is dumb, but there are some awful mascots out there... Xavier's Blue Blob, Stanford's tree, the Wake Forest guy, etc.

We have a great mascot.

I just like the fact that Cincinnati has a presence in CBUS.

That's what you got out of the post?

As others have said, there are far worse mascots. And Brutus is recognizable, which is the point.

I've had issues with Ohio State, but I love the positioning of UC as one of the two premier public institutions in the state.

I believe that this is the second year. Interesting that it started after Ono was out the door. I think there might be something to be said for working quietly with Ohio State with reasonable and achievable goals for UC's place within the system rather than poking a stick at them in public ("multiple flagships") while blaming them for your failures (no AAU/no CCC) in private. Pinto might not be a tweet machine, but he does seem to be quietly moving the needle and increasing the scope of UC's reach in the state.

As for Miami, I'm guessing showing up at the Illinois statehouse would be more appropriate for them these days.

I am no so sure the Ono public approach wasn't needed first to both fire up the UC base (which it did, especially outside of Cincinnati) and to get on the Ohio State radar, so that now the more reasonable, quieter Pinto approach could be effective.

I agree. Ono also did a bunch of work with OSU higher ups trying to get this moving. It wasn't just publicly calling for multiple flagships, he had a good relationship with the OSU administration and president and worked to get UC to that level.

seems like the lull between games has taken hold of part of the fan base..
