Cincinnati vs. The World

A woman fell asleep at the wheel and ran into Baba Budan’s Bearcat Café early Monday morning in Clifton Heights. Nobody was injured, but the storefront now matches its battered neighbor, Jerusalem Café, which suffered an explosion last November. The ghost of West McMillan at Clifton Avenue strikes again. CINCINNATI -2

As the college basketball season started, many predicted the Xavier Musketeers would finish the season in the Final Four. And that’s still a possibility — but nobody predicted this would be the ride. Winners of their first seven games, including wins at Vanderbilt and Butler, the Musketeers were living up to their billing and were ranked No. 8 in the country.

Maybe mom’s constant advice about always washing your hands isn’t so annoying after all. UC students and staff received an e-mail Aug. 24 from University Health Services informing the campus community of two confirmed cases of the H1N1 virus, also know as “swine flu.” As of a week ago, the number of confirmed cases had doubled.  

Xavier’s Success Raises Local College Baseball Profile up a Notch

1 Comment · Wednesday, May 27, 2009
A month ago, the Xavier University baseball team didn't conjure a first thought, let alone a second. A lot of baseball happens in Cincinnati. College baseball happens very quietly. But around noon on May 25 Xavier reached quite a unique distinction when it was officially announced as a qualifier for the NCAA baseball tournament, and the Muskies will play Friday at 3 p.m. against Kansas State at the Houston Regional. Over the past month, XU put together a splendid run, winning 17 of 20 games with prodigious batsmanship and a knack for winning close contests when they didn't bludgeon opponents to death.  

Cincinnati Sports Fans Not Miserable Enough

Forbes Magazine recently released two lists that should interest local sports fans. Estimating the financial values of college basketball programs, Forbes ranked Xavier as the 17th most valuable and Arizona as the sixth most valuable. The magazine also offered its list of the nation's most miserable sports cities.  

X Is a Factor Again in March Madness

We made such a fuss a few weeks ago when Xavier lost three straight on the road in the Atlantic-10 Conference. We started wondering if the same team that could lose to tournament rejects on the road could beat tournament teams on neutral sites. What got into us? What made us forget that the regular season is such a colossal waste of time?  

Xavier's Swoon in League Play Might Help Its NCAA Tournament Chances

Boredom might be a suitable attitude for sports fans after the Super Bowl, but one hates seeing a college basketball team assume that malaise, especially when that team was in the thick of the national picture. Thus we encounter the present Xavier basketball season as one of the most dumbfounding to pass this way in quite some time. The X-men rose as high as ninth in the national rankings on Feb. 2, only to mock their own prosperity with three dismal road performances in the Atlantic-10.  

UC Is on the Way Back at the Crosstown Shootout ... Xavier Never Left

Less than a month old, the college basketball season is so new that it doesn’t begin to add up. Among the names to be found on top of the RPI listings are Butler, Evansville, Clemson and Northwestern. But one highly placed name that doesn’t read like a sampling error is Xavier, which is ranked fifth or sixth in various RPI ratings, 10th by the media and ninth by the coaches.   

Get an Education

Those pedagogical purposes, however, don't mean there's not solid entertainment on area campuses. Of course, you might have to suspend your disbelief when a 20-year-old plays Willy Loman, but by and large scripts are chosen as learning experiences...
