Cincinnati inks deal to be "new BC."

BLAWNOX (PR) -- Insider sources have confirmed that University of Cincinnati has signed a 10-year contract to be Pitt's "new Boston College."

"This is an ideal situation for us since it's now apparent that we can't beat Pitt when we're ranked or when both teams suck royally, kinda' like Boston College," said Bearcats head coach Brian Kelly in a telepathic interview.

Cincinnati lost to Pitt 24-17 Saturday afternoon at Heinz Field. The Panthers have a 7-0 all-time record in the series against the Bearcats.

The Eagles have a 13-16 all-time record against the Panthers, including losers of four of the last five games. The two teams have not met since 2004, BC's last season in the Big East before bolting to the Atlantic Coast Conference. Pitt won the final meeting between the two teams 20-17 in overtime in a season when Boston College was expected to win the conference championship.

Pitt head coach Dave Wannstedt was elated by the news.

"This is a tremendous load off of our shoulders. Cincinnati brings a lot more to the table than BC ever did. For starters, they have more than 19 fans. Secondly, we don't have to deal with that pretentious New England crap. And Katt Williams is 10 times funnier than that no-talent hack, Dane Cook. Lastly, I'll take Pete Rose over Wade Boggs every day of the week," he said.

This is the worst attempt at a humorous sports blog I've ever seen.

UC fans are much worse than Pitt fans because; Pitt football has been irrellevant for ONLY the last 25 years, UC football has been irrelevant since the inception of their football program.

Give us Pitt fans another 10 years and we will be able to relate with the UC football fans on their level.

Whats up with the cat basket link?

When I click it on, it is coming up as some type of religious rant.

Did they finally seen the light and give up on Pitt football? or Did they block me because I pissed them off?

Those boys at the cat basket are way too serious and have no sense of humor. Give them about 5-10 years they'll come around and finally understand the true frustration of Pitt football.
