is this UL Pitino replay?
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.

At the time, I had no problem with Mack leaving X, b/c that's his prerogative like anyone else. However, when I read an article about David Johnson saying that during Mack's recruitment of him, he claimed CM told him, "You can play for me whether at X or L-VIlle." The next year, X had one of their worst recruiting classes in the last couple of decades. Coinicdence? Me thinks not.

Many on this board have talked during the years about what an obnoxious tool CM was in high school. Who knows whether that's true or not, but secretly recording the exit discussions with two close friends adds a lot of credibility to the narrative of the former. One thing I know for sure: Bruiser Flint would never have done that.

Both Coach Miller and Coach Mack have now experienced what the old idiom “(B)e careful what you wish for” truly means.

It was well known when he left that he was recruiting for UL, but worse, he had fully mentally left X and had effectively abandoned the team with the best chance ever, IMO, to get to the FF.

I agree...my issue wasn't that he left, but that he quit working for X a year and a half before he went to Louisville.

I agree as well. I never have a problem with coaches leaving for what they see as better jobs. I do have a problem when they aren't honest with their dealings with Xavier. Matta and Mack were major offenders here, but Mack was in a league by himself. I remember during that last season how strange it was that Xavier kept missing on its recruiting targets, something that does happen but not to EVERY one of them. And then the team basically quit during the BEast and NCAA tournaments. It all became obvious as to why this occurred when Mack bolted.
Xavier always goes to the NCAA tournament, and almost always makes some noise while there. Projecting anything less than that this season feels like folly--Eamonn Brennan (ESPN Summer Shootaround, 2012)
