RE: Experiencing Bearcat Football: A Decade Apart
Forgot to post this yesterday. Part III of my look at the 2019 Bearcat season through the lens of 2009. Revisiting the total mismatches of week 2 (and spending some time on past UC/Ohio State games).

Quote: I found out my father had been diagnosed with cancer about a month before my thirteenth birthday. He battled it for nearly five years before passing away on Valentine’s Day of 2002. I was two months shy of 18. My dad was from Wilmington, North Carolina but came to Cincinnati to pursue his Doctorate’s Degree in Sociology at the University of Cincinnati. He worked for UC throughout my childhood as an administrator in the college of business, while also teaching some night classes in Sociology. To this day UC football is one of the things that makes me think of him. He loved the university and I was lucky enough to get follow the Bearcats with him. He took me to nearly every UC game until he was diagnosed with cancer and we continued to get tickets even when he could not attend. He never got to live the glory years of UC football, but because of him I was able to fully appreciate the journey from mediocrity to something beyond comprehension.

Maybe the most impactful paragraph in your blog Mark. My mom is an ovarian cancer survivor and I am blessed that she is still here. Your Dad is always with you in memory and in your heart and that is something that you can share with your kids. He lives on through you. A great legacy to his credit. A great reflection of your character as his son. Thanks for sharing.

Part V briefly looks at the Marshall game then focuses in on UC's huge win over UCF. https://bearcatmark.blogspot.com/2019/10...lieve.html

Part VI. I think you'll like this one. I discuss UC@Houston 2009, UC@USF, QB injuries, whirlwind road trips, Fall Weddings, and how well the season is now set up for amazing things. https://bearcatmark.blogspot.com/2019/10...games.html
