Cue mention of 50 year old national titles in 3, 2, 1....
I think some XU fans are also pretty sore that despite a much more sucessful 5 year period, UC gets their knob slobbered by the local media and XU is an afterthought. The answer, of course, is demographics and school size, but it's little solace for those who have watched XU mature into a perennial contender and dominate UC most years until this one.
