The bus to Champaign was filled with Bearcats on September 7th when 25 alumni made the roadtrip to the University of Illinois to support UC against the Illini. Thanks to Tom Gruenwald and Dave Watkins for organizing the excursion. No matter what the outcome, it was a lot of fun. Those who stayed at O’Leary’s after the bus ride had a blast - and thanks to Dave Watkins for keeping the beer flowing.
Even though UC didn’t win, we can all be proud of our team for both the way they competed and, more importantly, the way they have supported Munchie. The senior quarterback had just attempted a pass in the fourth quarter when he was hit by a pair of Illinois defenders. Munchie returned to Cincinnati on Sunday after spending the night in the hospital in Champaign.
Thanks for helping to make the game a great and memorable day!
