    You don’t have to separate them, but I don’t really see the relevance in continually leaning on it to push back on the idea that fans can and should have high expectations for a high major division 1...

    You have repeatedly alluded to the thought that Brandon Miller was essentially fired under the cover of a contrived medical leave of absence. That’s the narrative.

    If it comes down to it, I’d much...

    I said the Butler decline was on post-Holtmann right up until it wasnÂ’t. Hint: that means after he left. JordanÂ’s first year was good, but he inherited a senior Kelan Martin. After that, recruiting...

    There’s obviously no point in discussing this with someone who has built an entire conspiracy narrative in their own head, so let’s leave it here.

    Brandon Miller was not fired purely for performance. He has issues off the court and has not returned to basketball in any capacity. This is not a comparable situation at all. Also, since you’re just...

    I think Dwon could be good off the ball in an attacking role, but who knows. I'm just guessing that that's part of the thought process for Scruggs.

    Otherwise, as seems to be tradition at Xavier,...

    He hasn't even set foot on campus or practiced once yet.

    You're gonna roll with him over a senior Paul Scruggs? Then I would start to wonder if Steele was trying to get fired.

    Not an informed opinion at all, but I think it's purely a business decision for both (i.e. results of this season are nearly irrelevant).

    Would be a great comparison if Xavier had a top 5 NBA pick just sitting on their bench not playing at all. I'm betting Steele would have benched Goodin for Anthony Edwards.

    There's plenty to worry about on the actual court. I honestly don't care at all what Steele says (or doesn't say) to the media. The way he interacts with the media is pretty much typical for a coach,...

    It's relative to the "average d-1 offense" year to year.

    It's the same as rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic with how this team looks, but the defense is definitely improved.
