Probably true. I hear that from some Xavier people sometimes. Living out of town for the past 13 years, though, I obviously don't personally notice it. Xavier gets as much positive press as just about anyone on ESPN.com and the other national sites. And I go straight to the Xavier page (or the Reds page) when I visit the Enquirer's website, so I have no idea whether they get better or worse press than anyone else there.
