Casual fans donít watch anyone but the blue bloods tho.

Up until lately I have done just that. But your posts suck all the air out of the room and no one else seems to want to post much. It's just a bad mojo here. I have nothing against differing opinions, it's how things are said, repeatedly.

I havenít lived in Cincinnati for a long time and can say most people that care about college sports know Cincy basketball is still damn good.

On a side note...I am surprised by how many people liked UC basketball because of our Jordan brand jerseys in the 90ís. We were thought of like ďThe UĒ in the 90ís....except we didnít really win anything.

The blue bloods and top 25/specific games. When we are ranked and the team we play ranked...it will get watched by casual fans. Even the Cross town will probably get watched.

Who wants to watch UC play Alabama A & M? On second thought who the hell wants to watch UCLA play Hofstra other than their own fans?

We were not middle of the road in the Big East. I would say we were consistently in the top tier competing for either a conference or tournament championship. We were elite in the Big East after Croninís second or third year.
