It was a crisp, Halloween afternoon in 1914 when the University of Cincinnati was first christened the Bearcats.
During a game against the Kentucky Wildcats, Cincinnati’s star fullback, Teddy Baehr (really!), inspired one cheerleader to improvise a surprisingly catchy chant: “They may be Wildcats, but we have a Baehr-cat on our side.” The raucous crowd followed, and by the next-day’s school newspaper, a cartoonist had immortalized the Baehr-cats for the ages. Only one minor edit: BEARcats. The rest is history. Outfit junior in this super-soft youth tee, and rep your Bearcat pride.
