Re: The Xavier way....should UC take note?
Sorry - "Final 8" is what I meant regarding XU. The last Final 8 for UC was in 1995-6 I believe?
Cronin - has UC/Huggins ties - but in no way coaches, recruits or manages his team like Huggins does/did. He learned from two of the best - Pitino and Huggins. Cronin is a great recruiter and is proving to also be a very good, upcoming bball coach.
It's "my" opinion that he'd be a good fit - I certainly dont expect UC to share that opinion due to the Huggins' situation. I also think Cronin would be a better recruiter and coach than Kennedy - Kennedy's approach to the game is quite similar to Huggins - it's all he knows really - Cronin is his own man.
