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!
I didn't miss the Huggins era, I witnessed the whole thing--just not as a Xavier fan. UC then was a lot like Xavier is now imho.
I realize UC will likely be good again next year, but until they prove it on the court I won't buy in. What gets under my skin is the crowing from some corners (see: Lance McAllister and friends) like the Cats are suddenly the second coming of the UCLA Dynasty. It was a good season for sure but not one worthy of the bravado some are exhibiting.
