A year ago this week, the University of Cincinnati paused to mark the 100th anniversary of the name Bearcats.
As we documented in this cover story and with this commemorative website, the name Bearcats hails back to a catchy cheer born during an Oct. 31, 1914, football game for star fullback Leonard “Teddy” Baehr: “They may be Wildcats, but we have a ‘Baehr-Cat’ on our side,” they cheered.
The family contacted UC Magazine to let us know that nearly 101 years to the day of that fateful game in which the name was born, Teddy Baehr’s great-great-grandson was born. Appropriately enough, they named him Baehr Kellan Robinson.
