    Palm trees are nice, but would come in a very distant second.

    So if we get him = nice! great get by Mack!
    If we don't get him = That's fine, I didn't want that knucklehead anyway.
    Lol, I was thinking the same thing.

    He was suspended twice this year for off the court stuff.

    Correct but let's be honest about what he was suspended for.

    1) He was charged with battery for allegedly hitting his girlfriend. Turns out she hit him several times, he pushed her away, his charge was dropped and the DA filed charge(s) against her.
    2) Misdemeanor possession of paraphernalia.

    So one suspension was premature/precautionary and the other involves a misdemeanor charge that the current star of our team has plus some other stuff. Is it good that he was suspended? Absolutely not but let's not act like it's the end of the world.

    If Xavier landed a few guys who had pretty rough backgrounds, kicked off a team (and X gave them a 2nd chance) etc. but it lead to a Xavier FF or NC, would you care? I think some people legitimately would care and wouldn't want to do it that way which is fine. Most probably would sign up for that in a second.

    I made my deal with the devil a couple of years ago, but he still hasn't paid up!

    Is it still blasphemy if it's just a message board post?

    I troll a KU board as well as this one. Bragg's stuff wasn't too bad when you look at things separately. However, you have not one but two incidents with crazy ladies, you have a rape of a 16 year old in the player's dorm which turned up the drug paraphernalia when the cops searched the place, you have the rest of the crap going on with the players there. Some players need a change of venue and all is well, he could be that, but some just bring it with him. I trust the staff, but Bragg is worrisome.

    So, I noticed an article about him in the Enquirer today.

    It noted the 5 schools that he's looking at now, including UC.

    It noted his off-the-court resume.

    Then it pointed out that he achieved noterietay when he originally announced:

    In January of 2015, Bragg made headlines in announcing his commitment by saying "Kentucky" as he put on a Kansas hat.

    I would hate to see this kid in a UC uniform, but I'm not sure I want him wearing a Xavier uniform.
    Forbes: The Most Valuable College Hoops Teams - 2015 - Xavier #18. One of only four private schools to make the list (Xavier, Marquette, Syracuse and Duke).
