Cincinnati isn’t being very subtle here.

There was already a report issued by The Athletic that shared the Bearcats were being active in conference realignment discussion.

Now comes a graphic that essentially puts it out there for everyone to see.

The Bearcats want it to be known they are “all about the Next Level,” whatever that means exactly.

It doesn’t that much to assume they shared their success in athletics to entice a Power 5 conference to take a chance on extending them an offer to make the jump to the “Next Level” of college athletics.

Now we wait to see if that offer actually comes.
