What did she bunk up? From where I sit, the University of Cincinnati looks better to the eye than I have ever seen. As the basketball wins keep going up, it will only look better. If I were an alum or a fan/supporter of the school, I'd need sunglasses when looking to the future...especially if they get the reported new arena/renovated Nippert/better athletic facilities plan into action and complete.
Better to the eye in what way? It's not like Cronin is recruiting choir boys. He was the main man recruiting the Donald Littles of the world. I'm not really into perceptions. I'm into reality and Mick Cronin is no different than Bob Huggins in all aspects. He got a T tonight for a cursing rant and he recruits the same type players that Huggins did.
I'm not ashamed that I can't root for UC anymore, far from it. I was a fan before I graduated from UC and don't feel that any team gets my allegiance no matter how arrogant, petty, and disrespectful the organization is. I and every other UC fan under Bob Huggins were basically considered fans of thugs and low lifes. That doesn't sit well with many people. She also has tried and downgrade the academic side of UC before she arrived. It's absurd what she has done all for the perception game. I just have something against people that are willing to trash anyone and anything because they want to change perception. That isn't the way you treat loyal servants like Bob Huggins or his fans/ex players.
