    Can we stop already?

    Can we cut the paeans to the Big East and to Villanova? You would be hard pressed to find a Xavier fan that isnít aware of the 30 plus year ladder we climbed but I for one am Fed up with ďthe storyĒ.

    Itís not like the Big East is doing us a favor. Hell, we earned the right to be here and besides one philly-based program we are the best program in the conference. Flagship lite for Snipe.

    I guess Iím still grumpy from Saturday but letís not kid ourselves - X is an elite basketball program. We owe nobody nothing. So there.

    By the way, if youíre coming to DC for the game welcome and hit me up, I know all the cool places.

    Peace.

    Jay Williams was on ESPN this morning. His "safe picks" for final four were Michigan State, Virginia, Nova, and your Xavier Musketeers. That is elite.

    if the Big East gets two into that round, watch out for the media reaction - - and I'm not saying it will be good or bad. I would think good overall, with some detractors tipping their caps to us along the way. What choice would they have at that point.

    My guess is BESPN would then go "all in" on coverage of the two non-BE schools and then do more baseball stories. They will NOT slobber all over Nova and/or X like they do Oklahoma or Kansas or Duke or UNC. The new BE is dead to them.

    Tony Kornheiser essentially ripped ESPN on PTI for slobbering all over Trae young and OK. He said OK will still get in tournament because of ESPN.

    Can I hijack this into a complaint thread? Or is there one of those already?


    Can we stop already... with creating new threads subplots of a game when there is a game thread for discussion of a game?
    Can we stop already... with creating new threads for other games in the Big East when there is a thread titled “other Big East games of note”?
    Can we stop already... with discussing how next years team might have trouble with outside shooting or how they are a bubble team?

    Ok I feel better.
