So happy for Lewis...dude had to suffer through a ****** coach, a transition, and a change in offensive strategy that kind of out his position out a bit. What a way to end his Nippert career...kind of game you dream of.

Great finish for Lewis. Last week today seemed doubtful with ankle injury.

Hopefully Warren back for bowl.

Lewis really came into his own the second half of this fraction. A legit number 1. Great finish to his time at nippert. Bowl game to go.

Lewis had kind of a quiet career, but he is going to end up in the top 10 in alot of career stats

Whatever happens in the bowl game, this season far surpassed expectations. Kudos to the staff & players.

This, 100%.

A well coached team takes care of business, even against lowly ECU. I was so impressed with the reserves who stepped up after the injuries the week before. It was great for Hayden Moore to play well in his final game in the Red & Black too and I understand his high school coach made the trip for the game. Pretty impressive on his part.

Our student attendance and engagement has continued to improve in recent years, but Friday afternoon was a setback in that regard. My son, who was attending with me, couldn't believe it. I fell back on the old "attendance excuse generator" and pulled out the one about the students being away for Thanksgiving break. But he quickly replied that we now have 44,000 students, of which a majority still live in Greater Cincinnati.

We've come a long way but the journey continues with regard to selling out Nippert, regardless of the opponent, the calendar or the weather. That's what big-time college football programs do and what a P5 conference would expect.

While I agree with your son that we as a fan base should do better. Seems to me that a football game would be a good way to spend the Saturday after thanksgiving if I lived in town and was lucky enough to not have to go into the office.

That being said...outside of the big traditional rivalries that get played during the last week of the season the attendance did not look great for anyone. A lot of empty seats at games all weekend. Friends and family are in town, and people often have extra days to catch up. Unless your rivalry is built into the fabric of your fan base like the OSU vs Mich game or the Iron Bowl, most people will think there are far more important things to do than go to a random conference game.

With the destruction of old rivalries there are many schools who will suffer due to playing a team that does not generate interest like they used to.

Attendance is not just a UC problem, it's a problem for many teams.

Attendance is not just a UC problem, it's a problem for many teams.

I actually brought my son to his first game on Friday because I knew the students were going to be gone for the weekend. Low attendance games are sometimes the best times to bring family members who don't want to be in super crowded stadium. While I love the sold out atmosphere at Nippert, sometimes I root for a few empty seats so my wife and son can also enjoy the game. Not everyone is a hardcore fan that needs to stand, yell, and scream during every play. For some the mascot, band, and food is what the game is all about. I would be more concerned if UC couldn't fill up the stadium for games that SHOULD draw big crowds not late season games on a Holiday weekends or a rain storms in September.

Students have been awesome all year. Not going to sweat them missing a game against an awful ECU team during Thanksgiving break.

IU was playing their hated rival Purdue for the old oaken bucket and a bowl game on the line.

Not even close to sold out.

Just remember, the students (and often, alumni) who care more about UC sports are not the ones who live in Cincinnati. They are from out of town.

Sometimes its tough sledding even for the students in town to get there. My son (a student) had to work his retail job on Black Friday.

I took my little girl down to the game, and I think she'll be a fan for life. I believe it takes decades to create a massive fan base. Keep winning and they will come.

As you would expect, Arquon Bush has been named AAC defensive player of the week. He's a star in the making.

I've been in on him since the first tape I watched back in Fall of 2016. Kid will be a great one here...reminds me a ton of Delo Smith, who oddly enough is the DBs coach at OU now.
