Re: 2012-2013 Xavier Musketeers

Xavier has one real rival...the University of Cincinnati.
And they're afraid to play us at their house.

Re: 2012-2013 Xavier Musketeers

Can you really be a rival if you can't win at X?

Not this year Butler. Double figures last year too.

I love having Butler in the league, but they will be at best Xavier's third or fourth biggest game year in and year out.

Don't forget he can't recruit either.

So Xavier has just come off a 40+ point win in which they scored 117 points (with both teams being at half-strength) and then beats Butler who is predicted to be in the top 3 or 4 in the A-10 by 17 points with Philmore still out. Add, a BIG recruiting get this past week and another on the horizon.

And yet you've got the crowd on here proudly led by the UD contingent predicting X will "be really down for a couple years" or more on the fringe saying "they are sailing the ship right into the Cincinnati River."

Keep drinking the Flyer kool-aid.

I really was expecting the worst going into the season (maybe I read too much stuff on here) but I was extremely impressed with Xavier over the past week, particuarly Dee Davis and Travis Taylor.

At least we've got to only win 2 more OOC games to beat the expectations from the Flyer faithful around here...

Re: 2012-2013 Xavier Musketeers

I know "some" had grave worries for Xavier's ability to shoot from outside and score this year. Looks like good ball movement and multiple players stepping up has eased the minds of the Xavier faithful. I'm sure these stats won't remain as high but it's still good to start out fast.

27th in 3 PFG % and leading A10

#1 of FG% in NCAA's


Nice start fella's. Keep it up.

Date Opponent Location RPI Ranking Result


11/09/12 Fairleigh Dickinson Cincinnati, Ohio # 330 WIN

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In this particular forecast, I'm going to assume if you have a WIN when you were suppose to have a LOSS that some sort of reverse Suck Factor occurs.

Re: 2012-2013 Xavier Musketeers

Wait a second. Surely Xavier was not a home dog versus Bob Mo. Or were they? I didn't look at the line.

Re: 2012-2013 Xavier Musketeers

They were a dog at home against Butler - I didn't catch the line against RoMo (as their mascot is apparently called).

Coming up in the DirecTV Tournament, Xavier would likely be favored against Pacific but could be a dog against either Drexel or Saint Mary's.

Drexel was supposed to be the frontrunner in the CAA, but they've looked just awful so far. Overtime losses to Kent State and Illinois State and a two point win over Penn. At this point, I don't think they would deserve to be favored over X. Then again, I don't expect them to get past Saint Mary's. Delledova is going to have a monstrous year.

Xavier gets 11 NCAA tournament appearances in the past 12 years. Reaching the Sweet 16 4 out of the last 5 times (including an Elite 8) plus an additional Elite 8 in the past decade. Add 5 out of the last 6 A-10 championships. Also every single game televised, Nike Elite contract and ranked as Top 20 most valuable program in the nation.

What does Dayton get? A single NCAA win in the past 20+ years. A couple NIT appearances (oh yea, an NIT championship). Oh, and they have those attendance figures Muddy likes to throw. Can't think of much more, though.

So I guess those are the FACTS that lead to the endless "propaganda" from X fans.
You are wrong. Very wrong. According to UD fans their NIT elite 8 is much more "elite" than X NCAA elite 8.
