    Haha.....Thanks to pimp I had a prime spot....I couldn't leave it.
    Also, I was not partaking in the alcohol aspect Friday.......which was a deterrent to me wandering around talking my head off.
    I was saving my drinking if they won. Unfortunately, I'm still saving myself....GDI!!!

    Typical. On your throne looking down at the minions and waiting for them to approach and kiss your ring.

    Just like how you survey Cintas. :p

    Article in Today's Cincy paper:

    ........According to 2009 figures from the U.S. Department of Education, UC spends less on men’s basketball than any school in the Big East except South Florida.

    For that year, the Bearcats had expenditures of $3.754 million and revenue of $4.927 million. Louisville, which was at the top of the Big East, had expenditures of $9.089 million with revenue of $25.890 million.

    Specifically, Cronin mentioned improvements to 13,176-seat Fifth Third Arena, which opened in 1989, and his desire for a better practice facility.

    UC has been studying options for Fifth Third Arena for some time, and athletic director Mike Thomas said Wednesday he’s confident the building will be renovated but he could not predict when that might happen.


    Xavier's program dwarfs UC's program economically. Too funny.

    From Forbes last year.
    Xavier Musketeers
    Team Value: $14.4 million
    Profit: $9.1 million
    Head Coach: Chris Mack
    Conference: Atlantic 10
    Previous Value Rank: 17
    Cincinnati, Ohio, Metro Population: 2,155,137

    Xavier, which generated $4.2 million from seat licenses last year, is the most valuable team from a non-major conference and one of only four teams whose value rank has increased for two consecutive seasons (the others: Kansas, Syracuse and Arkansas).
    Is the math safe to take $14.4M - 9.1M and assume a $5.3M spend?

    I don't think the DOE numbers and the Forbes numbers are apples to apples.

    Just because The Philosopher is banned shouldn't mean that the rest of us shouldn't be allowed to Neg rep him. Who's with me on this??

    I am in agreement. Shouldn't someone being banned make it EASIER to neg rep them?
    We've come a long way since my bench seat at the Fieldhouse!

    Quote from Ruby roast according to today's Enquirer:
    Brennaman on the similarities between Brian Kelly and his successor Butch Jones: “Brian Kelly has a leprechaun, and Butch has Mick Cronin.”
