Bearcats: We Don't Do Diddy

1/1/2009 8:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

For all those betting on today's Orange Bowl, there's now a wild card... and his name is Diddy.


Brian Kelly, coach for the Cincinnati Bearcats, moved the team from the Fontainebleau hotel in Miami Beach because P. Diddy and Co. were throwing a huge NYE bash at LIV nightclub there and the coach felt it would be one giant distraction.

We're checking to see if Virginia Tech footed Diddy's bill.

Diddy is lucky, if Cincinnati would have stayed he probably would have been mugged by one of them........

I wouldn't stay in the same motel as this arrogant, uneducated prick either, If I were in the same motel I'm afraid I'd be tempted to throw him from a 14th story window and improve this country by eliminating this canker sore from the horizon!

TheHulkster - I think your confusing the Bearcats with the Bengals. I know its confusing, but one is a college team and is actually good, and the other is the pro team.

Nancy, its not confusing at all. UC players have a long history of being thugs.....punching police horses, attacking roommates with burning cigarettes, underage drinking, multiple arrests for smoking a little herb, 3 coaches arrested for alcohol related offenses, its a long proud history. But at least they posted some wins.....

Hey Hulkster, Nancy is correct. But a slight modification, your both confusing the basketball team with the football team. Go Tony Pike and company, BEARCATS Rock! Brian Kelly is awesome and the best thing to come to UC Football in recent years. Just wait till they win tonight! Everyone will jump on board then! GO CATS!!

FYI TMZ, EVERY college football team switches hotels the night before the bowl game. Not because of parties held there. Check my facts, ITS TRUE.

CJ, These are basketball players ?? Didnt think so

UC offensive lineman Trevor Canfield, from Western Hills High School, was charged with felonious assault
Lamonte Nelms, 22, a starting senior defensive end from Ravenna, Ohio, was arrested on charges of criminal trespassing and resisting arrest
Khalil El-Amin was arrested Saturday and charged with felonius assault

but Kelly is a good coach and will a better class of player in there long term

Check this out! I found this on Diddy's site:
In honor of the launch of the new fragrance I AM KING, Diddy and Estee Lauder invite all would-be Kings to upload videos of themselves explaining to the world why "they are Kings" in their community. Whether you're a hustler, baller, overachiever, superstar, father, brother, or mother, Diddy will choose his three favorite submissions and treat the winners to a three-day all expense paid King-size adventure in New York. The package includes business class airfare New York, deluxe hotel accommodations, transportation, a $500 shopping spree at the Sean John Flagship store, dinner, and an evening out at an NYC nightclub. The three winners will also tour the officers of Bad Boy Entertainment and receive one I AM KING limited edition Lucite box.
