Events at Nippert Stadium
Originally the stadium was called Carson field, Arch Carson was captain of the football team in 1895 and then in 1901 directed the University of Cincinnati’s efforts in construction of the field that would bare his name. Speaking of names, the familiar and unique phrase “Bearcats” in Cincinnati can also be attributed to one of the University’s former players. In the midst of a football contest against the Kentucky Wildcats in 1914, Cincinnati fullback Leonard K. Baehr brought to mind a clever slogan amongst the Cincinnati faithful with a chant of, “They may be Wildcats but we have a Baehr-cat on our side”. A couple of marketing uses of the phrase followed by its use by a sports journalist a little later produced the results which to this day still associate the University of Cincinnati with their Bearcats title and insignia.
In the year of 1923, The University of Cincinnati football team had a concluding game to its season against rival Miami of Ohio. Cincinnati football player Jimmy Nippert sustained a puncture wound from a spiked cleat during the contest. Unfortunately Jimmy Nippert developed blood poisoning from the spike injury and died a month after its occurrence. Jimmy’s grandfather, Mr. James N. Gamble of Proctor & Gamble fame, provided the financial resources to complete the stadium project as James Gamble Nippert Memorial stadium was inaugurated on November 8th, 1924.
Today Nippert stadium is the sixth oldest Division 1-A or 1-AA stadium and fourth oldest gridiron in use within the United States. Cincinnati Bearcat football is proud to boast an all-time record of 258-153-13 at Nippert stadium.
