    Crosstown Shootout - Rubber Penis Game???

    I figured this deserved its own thread.

    I have attended nearly every crosstown shootout Xavier home game for the past 35 years.

    I sat on the bench for the Handshake game. I was in the stands for the brawl and Mick Cronin trying to fight JP Macura. I was there when Dexter Campbell and Keith Starks wanted to fight each other. I cussed out Bob Huggins from the stands at the Cincinnati Gardens from the second row, sitting one section over from his wife. I have seen most every noteworthy moment in this rivalry over the past 3 1/2 decades.

    It don't endorse that type of behavior but rubber dicks don't belong on a basketball court, and my sophomoric sense of humor would have gotten a real kick out of such a move, regardless of the opponent. Throwing them on the court when we are playing UC, would be even more memorable especially if they landed at the feet of Bob Huggins.

    I am not naÔve enough to think this could never have happened. But I sure think I would have heard about it at some point in this internet tavern of ours.

    Does anyone remember a single rubber penis (or multiple if that is the case) being thrown on the floor, in any game, EVER?

    I don't remember this either.

    I don't go back as far as you do and haven't been to nearly as many Shootouts as you have. I'm lucky if I can make it to one Xavier game at all every couple of years. But the majority of my Cincinnati friends who are diehard sports fans are UC fans. None of them remember it either. If it had actually happened, I think they would have known. I don't know what the hell he's talking about. Unless it happened in the early 90s in one of the games that was only on local television, I don't see how this could have happened and had so few people know about it.

    I haven't missed a home Shootout since before Huggins came to UC. I never heard of such a thing, and so I concur with BleedXBlue on this. If there's anything to it, it had to have been just a couple kids in the student section. I love that Xavier is still living in tHuggins' head though.

    To me this is almost the skipped over part of the story. It's bad enough to drop a couple of slurs and insult a religious group. Even if true, how bad is it that he had to reference an event that no one has ever heard of before to use as you lead to saying all of that?

    If you guys fortunate enough to attend all the shootouts don't remember it, and it wasn't brought up right after the game in any fashion that made the news, I'm wondering if Bob had a dream one night (nightmare of losing to us again confused with some soft core porn he had been watching)?
    ...he went up late, and I was already up there.

    Oh the full story from Huggins is even more wild:

    ""They threw rubber penises at us. Not just the nuns, I mean the whole arena. The whole arena. That's the truth, now. They (the rubber penises) were about that big they were about that long. ... So they threw these rubber penises at us, and Nancy Peters, Coach Pete's (Dan Peters') wife, went around and gathered them all up and put 'em in her purse. and then she went to church the next day and went up and saw the priest and dumped them out ... and she says, this is what happens at your school. He said, 'They didn't do that. The nuns wouldn't do that. They wouldn't allow that.' She said, 'Well, where do you think they came from? You think I carry these around?'"

    One dildo was thrown at a Bills game and it is still talked about. Yet enough to fill a purse were thrown at the Crosstown shootout and not one person remembers it.

    There were nuns at Xavier? Sister Rose?

    Actually, there couldn't be a more perfect example of living rent free in somebody's mind.
