But he chastised UC today for lacking a plan and gave credit to Xavier for having a plan. Many people will disagree, but I kind of agree with him.

I don't understand why UC has been left behind considering the success of the football and b-ball program. UC has dominated the Big East in football the last 5 years or so. And now the b-ball team has made the NCAA Tournament 3 consecutive years in a row. I assume it's about facilities, locality, fanbase, etc. If it's about football, UC should not be left out. Pitt and Syracuse have been major disappointments in football for a long time. Louisville has been up and down. UC has been pretty consistently good. If it's about b-ball, I can see why Pitt, Syracuse, and Louisville were picked ahead of UC. But it's not like UC would be a drain on the ACC. I mean, look at UC compared to BC, GT, VT, Virginia in b-ball. UC has been much better than those bottomfeeders.

Headscratcher for me. I look at that ACC conference I put together, and in terms of b-ball, it surpasses the current Big East. I'd love to see it.

I would have to hear Mo explain more what X's plan was exactly.

Here is an old article about X playing in the Cincinnati Gardens and what a sweetheart deal they got on the rental.

In the article, the Xavier AD at the time (Fogelson) even admits the rental deal they got playing at the Gardens made it possible to grow the program.
