    I’ll be there and I’ll be sitting with my UC buddies, wearing my Xavier gear. I expect them to start out talking a bunch of $h/t, but I expect it to turn to excuses before the night is over.

    Not that uncommon. EVERY game that UC plays in a December, except the last one on Dec 31, is a HOME game for them. Other than the tourney they were in and the one game at NKU, they have played...

    I can only say what it looked to me from watching on TV. If you were there and took video of it, then you saw more than me.

    It looked to me that by the time he was finished talking with the refs, and had said something to Miller and Kettler, that the handshake line was done and the players had already headed for the...

    Huggins didn’t know what happened there either. He was shown on TV with the refs and you could read his lips asking, “what happened?”. He then went and shook Sean’s hand, and they looked very...

    There’s no way that anyone could claim that the Mack tenure ended the way that anyone would want. But OVERALL that was a great season, with lots of highlights and good wins. IMO, they didn’t deserve...

    Yeah we sure wouldn’t want another season where X was a BE champion and a #1 seed in the NCAA tourney…..wasted year for sure. :bash:

    The whole train may not be there yet, but the engine is back on the F……..rails!

    I think it’s safe to begin thinking that this year won’t be like the last 4.

    GoX!

    Edwards looks much more coordinated than Miles. Miles always looks off balance and seems to get pushed around pretty easily. Edwards has more upside from what I saw last night and have seen in the...

    You can’t just “crash the boards” and hope to out jump the opponents when the shot goes up. Even BEFORE the shot goes up you’ve got to get yourself into POSITION to rebound, and just as important,...

    Xville, you’re just about 100% correct there and I agree that they will improve as the year goes on. Just about 100%, but not quite because knowing HOW to play TEAM defense is also part of the...

    There are a lot of Cincinnati area residents, who are also Xavier BB fans, that follow UC football. Maybe if X hadn’t dropped FB decades ago it would be different. But there’s no way I’m going to...

    The real key will be this……will the Big 10 and SEC remain a part of the NCAA or will they break away and form their own organization? (And if they do break away, will others join them?) Right now,...

    They are learning a new defense, one that the players have not played before. It won’t be any good until they get to the point where they don’t have to think about what they should be doing, and are...

    Considering that X has lost multiple coaches to higher profile programs and leagues, I don’t think that we have any reason to throw stones at UC for losing a coach to a Big 10 school.

    There are...

    Spot on IMHO. Defensive rebounding, the lack of, is a big problem for this team right now. Miles is starting to show some improvement, but is still far from being what X needs in the way of a...

    Me too. The delay between the 2 is sometimes annoying, but overall I’d rather listen to them than any of the TV people.

    Solid win and much needed, but I’ve got a feeling that defense will be a problem all year. They sure can score the ball, but getting stops is certainly a problem. Can’t just rely on the other teams...

    Firing Miller anytime soon isn’t even a thought by UC. They realize that he was left to basically build a team from scratch, and that the conference they play in is no help to attracting top talent....
