At least I went to Law School at Cincinnati!(X is my undergrad alma mater) I bet they blow X out of the gym. X always frustrates me. They don't have the killer instinct and are the "sloppiest" ball handling team every year. Bluet is not NBA material. Too slow, not athletic enough, the NBA defensive players will stop him cold. Another fair to good X college player. Big East will shut this team down. Too bad Sumner didn't stay. Goodin is not a "point guard," and Scruggs or should I say Scrubbs looks lost.

This will prove to be a good learning experience for the team. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Agreed that small quick quards will be an issue for us, however our help defense was also miserable and our effort in the second half. Terrible game for Mack.

We will be fine. Maybe not FF but we hit a good team on an exceptional night. They could not miss. Play them again we have a good chance to beat them.

blahblahblah undergrad blahblahblah uc law lablahblahblahw frustrates me blahblahblah etc etc etc

nice try UC fan but as usual you are wrong.....killer instinct Zona to the elite eight but then your uc team showed so well in the NCAA
I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em.

I'm done with this team and this season. Yes already. No way they make the Final Four or even the tourney playing defense and getting blown out by an Unrakned team. Just a sign of things to come in my opinion. I'm out.
guess you will not be watching Zona either!

Muskieman, I've always ignored your attempts at humor or sarcasm. But, what in the world does watching Zona have to do with being frustrated by X's play? Sometimes I think you try too hard to be clever.

Listen,

If you're going to be a troll, at least do your homework. Cronin has been at UC for 13 years (?), and has made it to the Sweet Sixteen 2x I believe. Your Boyz are the ultimate underachievers. X's wins in the NCAA relative to UC in the Cronin era is at least 3 to 1. As far as Blueitt is concerned, he may not make it to the NBA, but to call him a good to fair college bball player shows both your lack of acumen, and downright ignorance. It's also laughable to say X has the sloppiest ball handlers, when our freshman pg Goodin led the team to the Elite 8, while Cronin's great eye for talent brought in the likes of Muhammed, Wright, and Troy "I'm slower than the average UC lineman' Caupain.

X's list includes Lavender, Holloway, Christian, Sumner, and now Goodin.

Despite the fact that this is one of the precious few times UC actually has a team that might play past the 2nd weekend in the last two decades, it's probably wise not to gloat based on recent history. Perhaps you should make it an early night so you don't have to wait in line for tomorrow's game of that juggernaut of a football team you have, who struggles to outdraw St. X in attendance, in the mighty, mighty, AAC.

Very bad tonight. But the next 2 games will tell how bad or good we are.
