To be fair, a majority of those wins were when we were in an AQ conference. Only 9/41 of those wins happened after the Big East collapsed.

I think what is more important is UC’s record vs power conference teams and record vs non power conference teams. I think it holds up really well and would reflect a program that has spent a lot of time ranked since 2007.

True, but that conference change limited the opportunities for those wins too. Playing those Big East teams annually meant wins could come more often. It's kind of like a hitter improving with more plate appearances. In the American, UC was denied "plate appearances" especially at Nippert.

UC fans and alumni know that we've been playing above our weight class for some time now. I think college football fans across the country are learning that now but not because of familiarity with our program but more from the past two seasons of success - this year in particular. Our success has been building over time and that list is a marker of where we have come from. And I'm damn proud of that.

The 365 Sports guys have done a lot of discussions/segments about Cincinnati. Very cool production they've got there...looking forward to make it down to Waco for sure.

These are good, knowledgeable sports dudes. I've watched a lot of their segments on topics other than Cincinnati as well. They definitely appreciate what we can bring to the B12 and have been a supportive voice for us.

We hope this changes UC football forever!

We have had the chance before and blew it. Sid Gillman era. Brian Kelly Era.

The Fickell Era transcends those and must be built on.

These guys are never going to agree on anything. Too much d**k measuring going on in these meetings.

When is the last time UC lost to a P5 team at Nippert that wasn't considered a conference game?

24-35 Temple 11/10/2017
28-31 SMU 10/21/2017
23-51 UCF 10/7/2017
21-38 Marshal 9/30/2017

That was Coach Fickell's first year, wasn't it?

UCLA 2019 - W
Miami 2015 - W
Purdue 2013 - W
NC State 2011 - W
Illinois 2009 - W
Oregon State 2007 - W
Temple 2003 - W (they were in the Big East)
West Virginia 2002 - L
