Shootout Memories

After the trouncing X took in Manhattan the other night, I've come to the conclusion that it's going to be a looong season. If Mattare can suffer through Notre Dame though there's no excuse for me to get down on Xavier. This Sunday is the 76th edition of the Crosstown Shootout, one of the country's most overlooked rivalries. Xavier and the University of Cincinnati have been facing off since the 1927-28 season with the Bearcats leading the all-time series 47-28, mostly thanks to a 12 game win streak in the late 50's and early 60's. Lately though Xavier has dominated UC in the matchup, winning 8 of the last 12 and moving our program up in the national spotlight. I will have a more detailed preview of this year's game in a day or two but for now here is the end of the absolute greatest Xavier game I've ever seen. Hopefully some of this year's team will view it this weekend and get inspired.
