Founded in January of 2005 by Dave Berk on the Scout.com network, BearcatInsider.com became the first website granted media credentials by the University of Cincinnati thanks to the vision of former athletic director Bob Goin and former head football coach Mark Dantonio.
There have been many ups and downs in covering the Bearcats. Bearcat Insider witnessed the firing of basketball coaching legend Bob Huggins and the growth of Bearcats football as the program entered the Big East Conference during the Dantonio era before he gave way to Brian Kelly who guided the Bearcats to back-to-back New Years Day bowl games and Big East Championships.
Bearcat Insider was also there to witness under rated prospects come to Clifton to wear the Red and Black only to leave with championship rings and some taking their talents to the NFL.
In March of 2017, BearcatInsider.com left the Scout.com network to become an independent site covering University of Cincinnati Football, Basketball and Recruiting.
Will we be at every event? No…. But we’re working to give Bearcat fans a place to gather and talk about their team.
At this time, Cincinnati grad JT Smith is the managing editor of the site as he’s been for the past couple of years. We’ve decided at this time there will be no fees to visit the site. However, we do reserve the right to change that or to give you a chance to donate to the cause.
There are still options on the site being built and we look forward to seeing you on the site.
