  1. C7 News and Rumors

    I haven't seen any of the facilities besides on TV. Quite frankly, I'm not too worried about facilities because Chaifetz appears to be a top-notch facility. So from a basketball standpoint, I consider Creighton and SLU to be a wash there. I guess I just have the basketball mindset. Would I ever travel to Omaha, NE to watch Xavier baseball? Unless they are playing in the CWS, no. And I prefer baseball to basketball, in general. Give me the better basketball program in the better city, where more alums reside. Travel logistics are better for St. Louis as well. In short, I value the quality of the basketball team and geography as factors 1. and 2. And, in my opinion, SLU wins with both of those factors.
  2. C7 News and Rumors

    I agree. I admit I have an A-10 bias, but if given the option between SLU and Creighton, I'd take SLU in a heartbeat. St. Louis is a superior televesion market. At this moment, I also think SLU is the better program. You play in a better conference, and are trending upwards. Creighton is decent, but isn't trending up like SLU. I travel to many Xavier road games, and I'd enjoy making a weekend trip to SLU, but Creighton/Omaha? Not so much. Besides, Saint Louis is closer.
  3. Kenny Freeze

    Let me get this straight MAObama: Xavier is a "felon-laden" program because we have a kid who cut a few classes, and a player who played too much basketball, while your stars are alleged rapists? Frease messed up, and he deserves what he got, if not more, but your ripping apart a Coach and a program for suspending a guy due to academics, and a program that reported its own violation for a player who played too much. Hardly seems "felon laden" to me.
  4. Two X freshman to transfer

    In the case of Canty, he was most likely going to be sitting behind Justin Martin (our best recruit from last year who had to sit out, and is a fantastic 6'7'' wing/shooter) and our best recruit coming in, Dez Wells. Canty would've been stuck on the bench for the rest of his career then. In the case of Latham, he was struggling academically, never played man-to-man D in high school, and was just lost in the system. I liked these guys, but it's not a blow at all IMO. I've heard rumors of Ari Stewart from Wake transferring in, and 7'4'' recruit Sim Bhullar re-classifying to 2011.
  5. Dayton vs. Xavier

    This is purely speculation, but I say 90% he stays now. Going into the tourney, I would've put it around 70/30 stay/leave. If he had a good tourney, that would of changed, but the poor performance is going to keep him fired up and determined to make a run next year. I wouldn't be shocked if he tested the waters, but I think he's back now.
  6. Dayton vs. Xavier

    Yea I've spoken with Mario a couple times about how SLU and him don't necessarily get along, but I've never gotten the details. I've always kinda wondered why. Anyways, as much smack talk has gone back and forth here, I respect SLU as a university and was a little bit upset about the Reed/Mitchell suspension. I was looking forward to the rivalry between two Jesuit schools and another strong competitor in the A-10. Hope all works out next season for you guys.
  7. Dayton vs. Xavier

    More post-season points than everyone on your team combined.
  8. Dayton vs. Xavier

    What's your beef with Mario? He consistently schedules one of the better OOC schedules in the country, and is a key piece to our RPI and SOS. I don't know him on a personal level, but have spoken with him a few times, and he's nothing but a class act. I'd just like to hear your side of the story.
  9. Dayton vs. Xavier

    He played poorly yesterday. I readily admit that. But Great showing from your star PG this season-ohhh wait.
  10. Dayton vs. Xavier

    I'm in.
  11. Dayton vs. Xavier

    The "running train" incident isn't rumor-mill, it was well documented in the STL Today. And I've personally witnessed your coach break one of X's statiscian's laptop and curse at the student section. There are two sides to every story. I'm going to keep saying this, X doesn't have angels on the team, but neither does your program, led by the king of absurd antics Rick Majerus. Anyways, you can keep your stay on your "pretend classy" high-horse while we consistently perform well year in and year out and are actually realistic about the players on our team.
  12. Dayton vs. Xavier

    According to Webster's dictionary, a Tu is an A-10 POY. You guys could really use a Tu!
  13. Dayton vs. Xavier

    I'm sorry, sexual freaks would better apply. And while they're at it, maybe they could show a little more respect for women. I know I'm just considered a troll now, but you guys shouldn't pretend like you're the epitome of class by criticizing X's players, while your own stars are suspended for "passing" around a girl. All players do dumb things, I admit that, but it's laughable how we are the "punks."
  14. Dayton vs. Xavier

    And your point? This thread was ripping X players. I find it kind of funny that you guys call X's players punks, but have a team with guys who are clearly no better. Pot calling the kettle black.
  15. Dayton vs. Xavier

    Maybe he'll "run train" on Tu.
  16. Dayton vs. Xavier

    Our guys are asses for not shaking hands yet your team has sexual predators on the team. Why don't you worry about your own guys.
  17. Dayton vs. Xavier

    Typical other A-10 program looking at Xavier under a magnifying glass. X brings in money for the conference every year by making the tournament, something you guys haven't done since 2000. You should be thanking these "punks."
  18. X game review

    I'll readily that SLU's students were loud and probably out-cheered us. BUT And I know you guys will view this as a bit arrogant but so be it: Whenever any A-10 team plays X it's their Super Bowl. Every team and its students gets jacked up to play X. We face white-outs, red-outs, and all the likes during the season. Point being, we kind of viewed this as just another game and weren't that loud. A lame excuse, I know, but the truth at the same time. Anyways, I applaud SLU's students for their travels and applaud them for their intensity, good to see some passionate fan-bases.
  19. SLU v. Xavier GDT

    As an X fan, can't say I was suprised by SLU hanging in tough. You guys always give us fits. In terms of the student section, I would probably admit that SLU's student were a little more vocal all game, but then again everyone guns to knock off X, so the emotion was there. Excited to see this game turn into a rivalry over the next couple of years, two talented teams.

    http://grfx.cstv.com/schools/lasa/graphics...bball-floor.jpg Check that out guys. I think it looks pretty neat, and with your arena, it'll look fantastic.
  21. Guess who was on SC's Top 10- twice!

    Crawford is either going to leave after this season or next season. If he stays after this year, he will get his degree next year, and I don't imagine him wanting to take more classes, especially graduate ones, when he can most likely play in the NBA. Everyone in Muskie Nation is hoping that he stays next year. If he doesn't it'll be a big blow.
  22. Guess who was on SC's Top 10- twice!

    I agree-it is based on somewhat luck-not all luck-but some. And we lost to Dayton at UD because we have fits at UD. Love got 2 fouls within the first minute of the game and he played timidly the rest of the game (unlike last night). Crawford was the only player to contribute anything that game. McLean, Love, and Crawford have all been gelling since the Dayton game and we have been rolling as a result.
  23. Guess who was on SC's Top 10- twice!

    And your point with that is? Citing a percentage might be good. One guy shooting 6 shots means nothing-now if he makes all 6 then yes it means something. I agree that some of Crawford's bombs were lucky, but face it Cassity is no match for an NBA-caliber player like Crawford. And I wouldn't go saying SLU was clearly better from outside the arc-we shot at a better clip 45.5 vs. 40 (granted you shot more often). And our 3pt offense is 33 vs your number 1 defense. That's a much closer battle then 5 vs. 218. Therefore our consistency on both ends would make X the better team beyond the arc. Oh I am nervous. I was nervous about last night. Going into the game I knew we would have a battle on our hands. SLU has a similar style arena to Xavier and it is always tough to play in loud venues like Cintas and Chaifetz. SLU also has a wacky, but great coach in Majerus. Good game last night, I hope you win the rest of your games and end up in the tourney.
  24. Guess who was on SC's Top 10- twice!

    firstly, I want to say great game yesterday and I am extremely happy to see SLU where it is right now. The competitive edge you guys bring to the A-10 has been phenomenal this season and is great for the A-10. But to blame the game on bad luck is kind of a poor excuse in my opinion (I know you guys probably don't care one bit about what I have to say). Xavier entered the game as the 5th best three point defending team in the country, and you guys entered the game as the 218th best three point shooting team in the country. Take that into consideration, and you would expect a tough night on the three point end for you guys. But you still started off the game 10-17 from three point range, which I admit had partially to do with the good screens you were setting and plays you were running, but there is also some degree of luck involved with that. Eventually you guys cooled off, which is bad luck, but you still shot 7% above your season average at 10-25. My point being that sure Xavier was lucky with the shots that Holloway and Love made, I'll admit that any day of the week, but you need to realize that you will rarely see a team shoot 25% better from 3pt land vs. the normal average for an entire game, just like you rarely (but still do) see shots like we made.
  25. Xavier recruit

    I saw this thread and decided to create an account to try and help you guys out with this. Right now we have 3 walk ons-Joe Hughes, Kevin Feeney, and Johnny Mazza. Since our main recruit left with Miller to Arizona, Hughes received a scholarship this season, but it will be one of the incoming freshmen's next year. Feeney and Mazza will most likely be off the team next year. Hughes, on the other hand, will most likely remain on the team but won't have a scholarship. Love is graduating so there's another scholarship for a second freshmen. Thirdly, Andrew Taylor, who is a junior in eligibility, but a senior class-wise because of a red-shirt, is going to graduate and either give up his scholarship and forfeit his final year or will just be in the team as a non-scholarship player. I'm not exactly sure how the final scholarship will be worked out. And this is just pretty educated speculation.
