No Mauk, no more at Cincinnati

Daniels seeks redemption with Cincinnati
In a football league as apparently even as the Big East, the addition of a single weapon by one of the contending teams could be enough to tip the balance. The University of Cincinnati might have done that with the recent addition of Alex Daniels, kicked off the Univer...

Cincinnati NFL draft bio: Haruki Nakamura
When he was growing up in Elyria, Ohio, Haruki Nakamura's family wanted him to practice judo. They were, after all, Japanese. And he did, enjoying a certain amount of success in his age class. But the tackling style Nakamura subsequently took to the University of Cinci...
