Re: 2012-2013 Xavier Musketeers

Xavier would have to go 2-21 the rest of the season to hit Muddy's forcast for overall record. Hope you enjoyed these early wins, Muskie fans!

Re: 2012-2013 Xavier Musketeers

That was a delusion worth re-reading.

Absolutely classic.

Love the "Musketeers are looking at" parts. Basically, when in doubt, make stuff up.

Re: 2012-2013 Xavier Musketeers

You'll never convince him he was wrong - even after X wins their 9th game of the year. Somehow he'll argue that he was right and we misinterpreted his post.

I think X has a rocky road ahead, but geez - nothing like this clown is suggesting. X will continue to be competitive in the A10 this year. Next year, they appear to be quite able to win a lot and hopefully even take the crown - but let's not start talking next year before the season is over - that's what the Dayton fans like to do.

Re: 2012-2013 Xavier Musketeers

And here Muddie was worried about the National reputation that Xavier was garnering. I haven't seen one bad post anywhere but there is plenty of good press about Xavier coming out. In fact, below is just another peice. Way to go Semaj!

Position: Point Guard

Ht: 6-3 Wt: 187

Season Stats: 16.0 PPG, 6.2 APG

Comment: Christon missed the season opener against Fairleigh Dickinson with an infection and then struggled against Butler. Since then, though, Christon has been one of the best point guards in the country. In the last five games, he's averaging 18.8 points and shooting better than 50 percent from the field. Moreover, he's averaging 6.2 assists on the season. In Saturday's road win against Purdue, he played all 40 minutes and had 25 points.
I hope X can keep him around for another couple of years but I don't expect him to stay all 4. Muddie was right about Semaj wanting to leave but he severely missed on the final destination.

Re: 2012-2013 Xavier Musketeers

Xavier also got some nice pub on Yahoo! Sports as a team that has exceeded expectations this season.

Yahoo! Sports: Five teams that have most exceeded expectations so far this season

"Xavier (6-1): No Mark Lyons? No Tu Holloway? No Dez Wells? No problem, so far. The Musketeers are 6-1 with decent wins over Purdue, Butler and Drexel. That's not an NCAA tournament resume yet, but it's a good start for a program expected to suffer through a rebuilding year."

Ya...I'd like to point out that so far in the OOC one thing is certainly clear: Chris Mack can't coach.

Re: 2012-2013 Xavier Musketeers


Up until last night, Xavier's starting backcourt had been the strength of the team.

But they got smoked at both ends of the floor by Vanderbilt's starting guards at Cintas Center last night:


Vanderbilt 66, Xavier 64, OT (ESPN Box Score)

Kyle Fuller: 25 points (8-16 FGs), 5 assists, 2 turnovers, and 1 personal foul.

Kedren Johnson: 19 points (8-16 FGs), 3 assists, 3 turnovers, and 1 personal foul.


Semaj Christon: 12 points (6-13 FGs), 5 assists, 3 turnovers, and 5 personal fouls.

Dee Davis: 6 points (2-9 FGs), 3 assists, 3 turnovers, and 3 personal fouls.

Vanderbilt's starting backcourt made 4-13 3-points attempts and 8-13 FT attempts.

Xavier's starting backcourt made 2-9 3-points attempts and 0-2 FT attempts.


The two missed free throws were by Semaj Christon with 1:35 left to play in the game and Xavier holding a 54-53 lead.


With 1:10 left in regulation, James Siakam made a free throw to tie the game at 54 all - the score at the end of regulation.

Oh, Muddy. You are unapologetically gutless. Where were your recap posts to the Weber St. game or the Purdue-XU game?

(No need for this part) He is no doubt giddy that X lost a game. If everyone would put the kid on ignore, he'd go away.

And here I thought that Muddy rooted for all A10 teams during nonconference play.
