Bearcat Tailgater In the Newspaper

Bearcat fans roar about progress of team
Tailgate lots full despite the cold

Oyler was impressed by how quickly the lot filled up. His group, the Bearcat Tailgate Crew, hovered around fire pits and served up a Thanksgiving feast (two turkeys and a bevy of side dishes). They also had 100 hot dogs, 50 brats and five kegs.
"We started tailgating in this lot when we first graduated in 2003. Normally there would be just a few of us. Now it's packed with tailgaters," Oyler said. CLICK HERE TO READ ENTIRE ARTICLE

Bearcat fans on cloud nine
Tonight's sold-out game vs. Pitt 'huge for us'

Oakley resident Scott Oyler welcomes fans to celebrate with the Bearcat Tailgate Crew in the Schiel Primary School for Arts Enrichment parking lot. The group has a custom-made, $12,000 tailgate trailer that boasts a beer tap, 37-inch plasma TV, portable satellite dish, refrigerator, microwave, wine fridge and generator.
They also have a Web site (http://www.bearcattailgater.com/) that features fan pictures and game analysis. It garnered 456 hits Nov. 15, the day after UC beat Louisville, up from the 100-hit average it usually attracts near game days.
Oyler, a 2003 UC grad, is thrilled at how contagious Bearcats football enthusiasm has become among his co-workers and friends. Many went to other colleges.
"What I love is that it's Ohio State-Michigan weekend," Oyler said. "In the past, I know of some friends who would go to Columbus to tailgate. This year, they're like, 'Forget about it. We've got a big game here in town.'" CLICK HERE TO READ ENTIRE ARTICLE
