    I thought Brannen was a solid hire too at the time... though Wes Miller has a better track record. I could be wrong but before Travis was hired I swear someone (xubrew?) mentioned Wes Miller as an up and comer.

    Fuck. I wanted Wes Miller to be available for us if necessary next year. Great hire for UC.

    I don't know if I said that on here or not, but I've felt that way for a while.

    Then again, I thought Brannen was a solid hire at the time. I actually still think he could have been. Brannen is the kind of guy that phases in his players, not his system. That probably isn't the best approach, but he's by no means the only coach that's like that, and some have been very successful with that approach. Mike Anderson comes to mind. By that I mean, in football terms, if Brannen were to get the job at Army, he'd implement the west coast passing offense right away. Never mind he doesn't have the players for it. He'll phase the players in and out rather than phasing his system in and out to suit the current players he's got. So what you end up with, at least initially, is a lot of players that don't like you. But, if he made it clear what he wanted to do when he was hired, and how long he felt it would take, then in my opinion they should have given him more time. Or...just not hired him at all if they didn't like that approach. But, I also don't know what the "investigation" is going to turn up either. It wouldn't shock me if that's all just a bunch of crap, but like everyone else I won't know for sure until it's over.

    I need to find a reason to hate this Miller guy, because I really wanted him to be Xavier's next coach, if necessary. So someone needs to find some dirty laundry on this guy. We can't have a good coach at UC that I actually like. Just does not work.

    Time will tell. I mean he couldnít beat Pat Kelsey lol, although they only played one time this last year, and his team went 21-9 last year. Has to be better than Brannen though. Donít think he will give Xavier too many issues so the dominance over the last 23 years should continue.

    Welp. Today in his press conference he specifically stated that he and they would “Kick That school across town’s behind”.

    Yeah looks like it’s on! A nice rebuttal from Scruggs!

    Bold strategy by him, especially considering our track record against UC lately.

    Ballock signs with an agent. All 5 Creighton starters now gone. 2 assistant coaches gone.

    Seems like its going to be a rough year in Omaha.
