Cats in a laugher. 105-47.
A close, hard fought game. Xavier's the more talented team this year and clearly has the higher caliber wins, but UC is drastically improved from the past two years and can now handle most teams in the country.
If UC plays well and can avoid costly turnovers, then I think they've got a fair chance at pulling out the W.
Kevin Gregg and Jason Marquis will bring back memories of the Lost Decade.
If it were at X, I would rule UC out. Being at the Shoe, I have to give my Bearcats the edge. I'll be there, and I have great seats in the student section.
When is that game?
Oh, it's this weekend?
In all my years around Cincy, I can't remember less enthusiam for this game. This game used to be a can't-miss event. I actually didn't know the game was this weekend until I read Lance's blog 2 days ago. And I'm usually pretty up-to-date on sporting events around here.
BTW, XU will obliterate UC, 84-57

82-77 UC gets revenge for previous upsets when highly ranked.

Ill be in section 127. I say UC wins in a hard fought battle tie game until the last seconds and UC comes out on top 70-69

This game is still not sold out? And I thought Cincinnati was a great college hoops town. Pretty sad actually.
When all is said and done more is said than done.
1. Finances in these tough times. At some point it is hard to justify paying to go to a crap arena when you can watch it at home.
2. "Fans" still do not know what they have with this UC team. Huggins is gone, Z is still around. Some semblance of animosity towards her and therefore the school still exists, but more importantly the UC team has not been winning in this fair weather town, so the fans are not flocking.
I have a sneaking suspicioun that by the time the Big East schedule gets here, the fan "problem" will be minimal. And next year, for Vaughn's senior year and Gates' sophomore campaign, the place will be rocking.

I'll throw in a third reason, so far over 10,000 UC fans are paying for some expensive trips to Miami, and have to cut other portions of their budget. That's my reason anyways. I would absolutely love to be at this game, but I mentioned that I was interested and threw the ticket price out in front of my wife and she basically shot that down with the question of "how much are you spending on this trip to Miami?" End of conversation.
I don't get the whole obsession with when a game sells out. People were all up in arms about the UC Pitt football game not selling out until Thursday or whenever it was. Who cares when it sells out, bottom line is the Shoe will be sold out on Saturday.
Sports teams really need for a programs demands to be higher than its supply. That way they can depend on a certain revenue stream even after some of the bandwagon fluff departs.
When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.
I don't care if people show up to watch it or not, I want UC to beat the ever living tar out of that other school.
What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?
All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.
