    I love that, for at least next year, it's going to be a true round-robin scheduling format for the 18 league games. It means we're guaranteed to get Georgetown, Marquette, and 'Nova in for home games. Should be rocking at Cintas!

    I know not everyone agrees with me, but I'd love to stay at ten teams. Twelve would be ok but I wouldn't want to grow much beyond that.

    Congrats on the move to the Big East. It'll be good for the conference and X.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Re: Xavier Basketball

    I can't wait to see these teams enter the Cintas and leave in a daze.

    I hope this is the beginning of a decades long relationship with this core of teams. Also that it's one that flourishes for all the teams involved. To that end, I believe 12 teams is the best fit for this conference in order to obtain an extra NCAA bid per year. It will be tough to get 6 NCAA bids from a 10 team league. Even 4 or 5 will be hard sometimes. I can't ever see it going below 3 though.

    One of the nice things is that some years going 14-4 in conference may not exclude a team from being top 5 or 10 in the country. I think in the A10 that was almost centainly never going to be the case. With this move, I think the likelihood that X gets into the top 5 for the first time is increased a lot.

    X still has a lot of milestones to reach. Top 5 ranking, #1 ranking, 1 or 2 seed in the NCAA, Final Four, Championship game, winning it all...

    Keeping perspective on where things have come from since the early 80's is quite something. Just a few years ago, they had 1 sweet 16 and a bunch of first and second round exits. The last 9 years have been an immense success, and yet, again, there is still so much more to do.

    It's going to be a blast. Can not wait.

    This AD pick seems like a real dud.

    BG is like the bottom of bottom feeders in D1 athletics (their last tourney appearance in hoops was pre-Armstrong on the Moon). I find it hard to believe X couldn't do better than this guy.

    Who knows? Certainly not a sexy hire, but there has to be some reason they wanted him. Right? Right?

    Happy Big East Day! I'll be wearing my X hat to the park tonight along with my Reds gear.

    Re: Xavier Basketball

    Great win for Mack's team last night. Tennessee was #27 in both polls going into the game and had been picked #3 in the SEC behind FLA and UK.

    I'm loving how deep this squad is -- they're getting quality minutes out bench guys and they still have yet to get Dee Davis back from his concussion.

    This team has some actual shooters and a real big man. They will be really deadly if they become even mediocre from the stripe. Missed foul shots almost bit them last night.

    Re: Xavier Basketball

    I was at the game and still feel good about what I saw, although I wonder how tough it was for a Tennessee team to come to Cintas in game 1 of the year. I was surprised how soft their bigs were, we had our way inside.

    I love Myles Davis, he's ready to step in and just stroke it from 3 - minus the dribble dribble pass oh crap get rid of the ball Redford effect.

    Just a lot of depth it seems at all positions. I think my new favorite is James Farr. He's got a chip on his shoulder, isn't all that athletic, but he's a ball player and does a lot of different things well. I especially like his soft touch around the basket and out to the arc.

    Also, while it feels like Dee Davis can do a lot more, and I believe he can, Brandon Randolph seems to just understand his role so well. So mature. I have him pegged as one of the Xavier greats by the time it's all done, we'll see.

    Lastly, Semaj was Semaj, just freaking awesome, although I thought he had his dancing shoes on for all the scouts that were at the game. I've seen others like Holloway and Crawford go through these games and their just a bit elevated good or bad due to the pressure of knowing NBA scouts are there in the heavy.

    How 'bout this recruiting class? I knew it was going to be pretty good, but I had no idea that it would be ranked this high. Things are looking nice for years to come at XU. Very, very exciting!

    An incredible class. Even better, I think the eligibility issues are minimal.
