    I assume many on this board are glad to be 'wrong' in some prognostication (which, by the way, did not engender much opposition at the time).

    Well, I’m certainly glad I didn’t know what I was talking about!

    Golf is a relatively simple game, played by reasonably intelligent people, stupidly.

    I'm ecstatic!!
    What a job by this team and Coaching staff. Never been happier to be so wrong.
    But Travis did out coach Chris Mullin...twice! :-)

    Not bad
    Coaches don't make Xavier, Xavier makes coaches.

    Was this part of the predictions?

    I'm not sure even the most ardent Steeleophile would have predicted this.

    I know the support for Travis has been all over the map, and many have insisted he WILL BE a great coach.

    But, wow, just wow.

    Was this based mostly on their projected finish? Because of what they lost? Gotta be more than that. It's not like this was a great season for his team. The stretch run?

    Gotta say I was a bit surprised.

    Perhaps it's a parody award since Joe B. Hall was so shitty.

    Well that certainly makes more sense...but still.

    He may have been shitty but he won an NCAA title.
