Sqiggly seems infatuated with the scuffle, not that score. He hasn't made one post about his team all summer. Just here to pump negatives about X.

Not sure what the brawl has to do with the 2012-2013 Xavier Musketeers.

I know; absolutely nothing.

Well, for on thing, it seems to have allowed UC to dictate the location of the 2012-2013 UC/X game, which affects the 2012-2013 Xavier Musketeers schedule. I also know that there was speculation that the whole controversy about how Xavier administrators handled the public relations fallout drove a wedge further between Lyons and Mack. Mack and Lyons already had a strained relationship, but it may have been one of the issues to help Lyons make his decision to defect.

I think the loss of your highest scoring player has a significant effect on the 2012-2013 Xavier Musketeers.

Re: 2012-2013 Xavier Musketeers


Among other things, the retention of Mark Lyons would have given Xavier a legitmate 3-point thread (spreading the defense) and would have allowed Dez Wells to start at his natural position, SF.

I’m have a bit of difficulty figuring out Xavier’s Depth Chart for the 2012-13 season.

For the sake of discussion, perhaps some of you Musketeers might post your own thoughts about this.


Possible Depth Chart (Position: starter, first off the bench at each position.)
C: Jeff Robinson, Jalen Reynolds, and James Farr.

PF: Isaiah Philmore, Travis Taylor, and James Farr.

SF: Justin Martin, Dezmine Wells, and Travis Taylor.

SG: Dezmine Wells, Brad Redford, and Myles Davis.

PG: Semaj Chrison, Dee Davis.

Muddy’s Observations:

(1) Idealy, Wells would start at SF because of his great athleticism and proven ability to rebound (which Xavier really needs up front), but that would leave Redford as the starting SG, and I think that a starting line-up with Martin and Wells is stronger than a starting line-up with Wells and Redford.

(2) I expect that Wells will play both wing positions in most games and lead the Musketeers in minutes played and scoring.

(3) From what I have read about Philmore, he appears to have the edge over Taylor.

(4) If Christon is not better than Davis, the Muskies are in big trouble.

(5) Based on Farr’s performances at Maine Central Institute (low scorer; stats unknown) and in the Deveroes League (about 6 ppg), I don’t see him getting much court time this season other than mop-up minutes, unless another Xavier big man is injured (which hopefully will not happen).

(6) Dez Wells certainly has All Atlantic 10 Team potential, but it hard to see where the scoring and rebounding against better opponents will come from after the departures of Tu Holloway, Mark Lyons, Kenny Frease, and Andre Walker.

(7) On paper, this season’s team looks thinner than any Musketeers’ Roster in recent memory.

Given that Jeff Robinson's natural position is PF, and Dez Wells' natural position is SF, Mack would essentially be starting three Power Forwards, a drive-to-the-hoop Small Forward, and a drive-to-the-hoop freshman Point Guard.

That is certainly an interesting concept, but no head coach in his right mind would do so unless he had no other choice.

Re: 2012-2013 Xavier Musketeers

Years of predicting X's demise in preseason hasn't seem to work out at all for the Flyer wannabees (i.e. Never). Good sign for this year's team.

That was worth exploring.

2008-2009 Season
Quote:
Point guard play could well be the Musketeers’ Achilles heel this season, and the only answer is to give the PGs game experience and hope for the best. It looks like Xavier and Dayton will both be playing 3 point guards this season, but based on the results of the first exhibition games, the Flyers’ trio appears to have a considerable edge over the Musketeers’ trio as the season begins:
Result = XU Sweet 16, Dayton 2nd Round

2009-2010 Season
Quote:
Concerning Xavier's depth this season, Buick Mack has a gaping hole at the forward positions that you could drive a truck through. That's a huge problem for Mack and his 2009-10 Musketeers, even if there are no injuries this season
Quote:
If Xavier doesn't get the job done against their BCS-conference opponents, the NCAA Tournament will be nothing more than a dream for the 2009-10 Musketeers, as I have posted previously.

The Musketeers' lack of forwards, depth, and experience will be their Achillies' heels in 2009-10.

And don't forget that Xavier has a rookie head coach.
Result = XU Sweet 16, Dayton NIT

2010 - 2011 Season
Quote:
However, I do see Xavier finishing the season behind Temple, Dayton, and Richmond because of their serious lack of depth.

It is my opinion that that this lack of depth will be the reason that Xavier loses some games that they would not lose if Brad Redford and Justin Martin were available to play this season.

But I think that Xavier will end up on the wrong side of the NCAA bubble on Selection Sunday 2011 and be one of the top teams in the 2011 NIT.

If that is "predicting doom and gloom for Xavier", so be it.
Result = XU First Round, Dayton NIT

2011-2012
Quote:
Questions have poured in after five of the last six games now.

What’s wrong with Xavier?

Why does the team keep losing?

Will the Shootout brawl aftermath define the Musketeers?
Result = XU Sweet 16, Dayton NIT

2012-2013 Season
"On paper, this season’s team looks thinner than any Musketeers’ Roster in recent memory."

We'll see.

Re: 2012-2013 Xavier Musketeers

I've got to hand it to Paul. It was impressive to see a compilation on all Muddy's predictions regarding X, along side the actual season out comes. The last time I saw a carving like that, I was in freshman biology with a dead frog laying in front of me.

Re: 2012-2013 Xavier Musketeers

I would think we'll make the top 50, but would be a lot higher if it was the last 25 years instead of 50.
Butler should do well from the scoring system of pts for conf. champions, appearances, etc.

If the last 25 years were done I think we'd be in the top 20 like our position in Forbes.

Re: 2012-2013 Xavier Musketeers

A lot of what causes programs to win is the fact that they have won before. Its basketball inertia.

For the great majority, programs will just go on being themselves regardless of whatever year-to-year particulars occur. It takes a major catalyst to change a programs standing.

I see nothing that would indicate that this would be anything more than just another scholarship available for the 2013 class (and some additional losses this season)

(and that lineup is still top half talented)
