OhVarsity! is a Cincinnati Bearcats site founded by Spencer Tuckerman. Since its inception in 2013 as a Twitter account, OhVarsity! has since expanded to include a blog, podcast, and live content. Former Bearcat football player Alex Apyan joined in 2016 as a special project writer, Matt Allaire joined in 2017 as a content producer, and Emily Witt joined in 2018 as a photographer. All four contribute to the podcast in various ways.
Why "OhVarsity!" for the name? In 1906, physician and German immigrant Otto Juettner composed the University of Cincinnati alma mater. “Oh varsity, dear varsity, thy loyal children we will be,” goes the chorus. President and UC alumnus William Howard Taft said the song was “the finest, most inspiring college song of any I have ever heard.”
