    So, from an outsider's viewpoint, it looks like X lost their mojo after the UC brawl. Before then, they looked like an excellent top 10 team. Afterwards, they looked barely top 64.

    What the heck happened?

    I'll give an insiders view: Xavier is the same team now that they were before the brawl. People just didn't notice because the lucky bounces went our way; since then they haven't. This is a good but not great team and that is how the season is shaking out. With the soft bubble this is probably still a tournament team but unless the 4 and 5 players suddenly learn to play tough it is one and done.

    Yet you're school is still - still, I say - double digits behind in the all-time series. You'll need to win the next 11 straight just to knot the series with UD.

    True enough. But since we are comparing numbers, I'd like to compare NCAA tournament records and our head to head record in the past several decades. The links below should help you out.

    I'm sorry. This is all my fault.

    True enough, but recent results do show the gap is closing. I think UD now has that coach that can take them to the level of success that xavier has had.

    Xavier Tournament History

    Dayton Tournament History
    Well, if we're going to go back "several decades," I'd direct you to Dayton's Final Four appearance, national championship runner-up status and the fact that UD has occupied every spot in the AP poll from Nos. 2-25. Despite all of xavier's success, it still has never achieved what the Flyers have.

    Now, if we want to stick to recent history that's fine too. UD has won two of the last three meetings between the two schools and fell in OT on the road in the most recent game, despite the fact that this year's team has essentially been kept together with duct tape and bailing wire. I'm extremely happy with the way the program is trending now under Archie Miller. With the recruits/transfers coming in for next year (one from Georgetown, one from LSU, and two recruits originally committed to St. John's and West Virginia), I'm fine with whichever way this transitional season plays out.

    I'm pretty sure I'd be selling my XU stock and buying UD stock right now.

    I was talking more the rancor between the two fanbases. I love heated/hated rivalries.

    Then you'll love Xavier/Dayton. If I said what I wanted to I'd get banned.
