My first tip: Don’t think you can outwit
the Fringe. I like to say that the festival is best described as theater
roulette. Give the cylinder a whirl, pull the trigger and see what

saw the team win 97 games — the most since the 1976 Big Red Machine.
Before we set our sights on the
future of the program — one that looks bright despite the uncertainty
surrounded the university’s conference affiliation — we’ll look back at
the top 10 moments of the ’Cats’ 2012-13 season. Despite the frustrating
second half, there were many awesome dunks and cool things that
We’ve already covered the social, political and economic angles of the development of the Horseshoe in previous CityBeat
