Cue mention of 50 year old national titles in 3, 2, 1....
The reason I get mad is X fans can't realize that the Bearcats aren't a one year wonder...we return our top 4 scorers and bring in a top 20 recruiting class that still has another addition coming up shortly.
You wouldn't know that we're a great program though, because you missed the Huggins era.
The hatred is why it's a great rivalry, you'll get used to it soon. There is a diff though, some fans can hate and be reasonable at the same time like me!
