    Re: Xavier Basketball

    Gotta say I'm with Mutaman on this one (can't remember that ever being the case before). Doesn't really seem like he came in here to troll.

    His first post in this thread was:

    Buzz Williams has had his ups and downs this season, but he coached a great game tonight. Marquette had too many weapons and Buzz used them perfectly.
    Simply his opinion on the game. He may be wrong but I didn't see that as trying to start anything. Everything after that was discussion on his first post.

    I don't understand how it should have been private either. The crux of the discussion seemed to be: Marquette was just too much for a pretty good X team vs. X gave the game away to a hot shooting, average Marquette team. Seems like a pretty standard message board discussion to me.

    I'm not offended -- I just didn't want to interrupt you patting yourself on the back regarding your opinion of Marquette. You were the one who said it was a discussion between the two of us.

    Re: Xavier Basketball

    Time to bring this thread back up. Most talented Xavier team ever this year. Will be interesting to see how things go when Xavier gets into the meat of its schedule in a few weeks. Tu and Lyons are just ridiculous as a backcourt, and Wells is an athletic freak. Lots of talent around those guys, too, including an excellent college big man in Frease. They're going to be fun to watch.

    Yeah, I'm super-excited this season......but that makes me nervous. I hate expectations of being great.....easily leads to disappointment. But man, the weapons they have this year? Look out!

    The 2011-2012 team is a blast to watch. Allowing Tu to pass first is a game changer. The weapons on the Xavier roster are unreal and the pipeline is full, too.

    They've got the size to dominate conference play and the guards to make a deep run in the tournament.

    This should be an *extremely* exciting year for Xavier hoops. I'm really looking forward to it.

    Good win against the always pesky Fightin' Coles. I swear that man could coach a CYO team to respectability.

    Very true! Xavier is very talented, and didn't play very well. They never seem to play well against Miami. They will be very good this year.

    RedHawk fans like myself wish Mavunga would quit thinking he is Ray Allen shooting the three. Bill Edwards should be an exciting MAC player!

    Good luck to X!

    I like that freshman PG for Miami (Sullivan?). The RedHawks were a lot better than I expected them to be.

    Re: Xavier Basketball

    Nice win tonight against UGA but I would really like to see X finish an opponent for once. 14 points is a nice margin but the lead was 36 at one point. I have a feeling Mack will let the guys hear about it.

    Re: Xavier Basketball

    Was at Cintas tonight -- dominating effort from X, but I agree w/ 1869 on the need to play a complete game. Xavier should have been up 15+ at the half but left points on the floor due to sloppy play. They let up in the second half after jumping out to a 30 point lead, but I find that less troublesome than the first half issues.

    Nice early-season road win tonight for X. I thought Xavier was the better team all night, but at times they played awful. Somehow they got it together in the second half and toughed out a good victory. The Muskies are ridiculously deep this year, it might take some time for Mack to figure out his rotations...
