Season on the BRINK?
Since the end of WWII (The Big One) Cincinnati Basketball has only won less than 10 games once. That year was 1983-84 when UC went 3-25 and 0-14 in the Metro Conference. This was Tony Yates first year.

A feat accomplished once in over 75 years will happen again. We sit at 2-6. 17 games plus a first round AAC Tourney game. There is no way the team I am watching can win 8 games. I see 5-21 at best.

Players opting in, players opting out, The Russian not arriving, The Coach looking like a Deer in headlights.

No recruits on the horizon.

Does anyone know Rick or Nick's phone number?

Yeah we're 2-6, but think of all the money we saved in moving expenses on this hire.

We are going to go on a nice run at some point and get to at least 8 wins this year.

10 is magic number for Brannen to keep his job. It’s going to be close, UC still has Temple, ECU, and Tulane for six games. Plus there are probably are few games where the ball bounces the right way against some of the ok teams. I see more than five wins but getting to 10 is going to be difficult.

I still would move on from this staff in March.

wow, seems like Groundhog day from the 2007 season. People calling for UC to fire Mick Cronin. That turned out pretty well when he wasnt fired.

I’m pretty sure 8 is attainable.

Would need to go 6-11 in the remaining regular season games....well, 6-9 after we lose these next two road games at SMU and Wichita...perhaps 8 is optimistic.

Mick took on a mess.
Brannen did not.
10 wins or Brannen's got to go. It's not like he's lined up a great recruiting class.

A couple of years of results like these and the program could be irreparably harmed.

UC Sports may be victimized again by an AD making a key coaching decision with one foot out the door.

I hope you are right. I rather be wrong about this staff and players than start over. For two years now there is a lot to be concerned with.

I just feel that hitting the reset button is the better short term and long term option for the program.

Well the AAC is very pedestrian this year so it’s not like we have a murderer’s row of games ahead of us. Perhaps we can steal a couple against ECU, Tulane and Temple in the next 2 weeks.

Just make some shots. At least you don't have to worry about the crowds. They're all like scrimmages. That might be our problem.

Season on the brink? No, but it is a season that will make you drink.


(the season is not on the brink because the die was cast before the first tipoff)

This is my feeling. For all the failures were they guards merely shooting a low three point percentage instead of an abysmal one they'd probably be 4-4 or 5-3 and we'd be disappointed not dejected.

Maybe maw and ddj will continue to shoot 15-20 percentage points below their last year percentage. I just think that can't continue forever and things will turn around some.

Who has the magic dust that will make that happen? Brannen, doubtful.

I think part of the reason for the low percentage is that they are always high pressure shots due to playing from behind.

I don't know about that they miss them at all points in the game.

Bingo. Team never plays with confidence, nor is it ever in a position to.

Looking to see if the key freshman recruits from his first two classes quit on him. If so, he's terminal.
